DO NOT BUY ANY LABIARYNTHS ehem Labyrinths.

Gain 1000 labyrinths using territorial expanse without buying any labyrinths at all.

Best to get setup done, and leave your mouse to rub and click that treasure chest to get and expose more Labiarynt-ehem Labyrinths.

How did you get to Faceless 2 What is Titan 1?

how will they make artifacts easy to find for R30 players
and hard to find for R0 players?

because at R30 you really CAN’T do much Excavation.
tho from R0 til R30 you’ll do soooooooooo much Excavation.

any idea how they will make this work for everyone?

Well, resetting excavations is only one ruby, and most people should have over 10 after the event (although they’re mostly likely all spent by now). The devs might also include increased chance to get artifacts based on your R number, but I wouldn’t count on that much.

Topic: Realm Grinder / Realm Grinder: Christmas Event

So… no final gift. No notification. Avalanche gone just like that. All this feels somewhat anticlimactic. The event is now over, but is there a way to see if that 12% bonus that is supposed to remain afterwards is indeed active and how big it is?

Topic: Realm Grinder / R30+ Discussion

I’m exactly where you are now and I too want to get to R32 with Avalanche. I’m using UniTitans (they got me to R31) and will likely do so until R32, but when the event is over I will most definitely go Faceless – even if only to build up Hive mind. Still, over time Angel line Faceless will most likely be the only sensible option, unless neutral challenges change that.

I will also look into offline builds, because once there’s nothing new to achieve I will most likely go into offline mode much more. Before the latest patch I spent most of my time doing long (5+ days) Undead runs. Also, I don’t think there’s much point in tryharding to get another reincarnation, when the next patch will likely push you two or three reincarnations with ease.

So I’ve been wondering. When does Gem Duster (C340) become good enough (if ever) to be a replacement of one of the things on the wiki Unititan build.

Note: Idk if said build has a name or who made it.

http://realm-grinder.wikia.com/wiki/Research_Builds#Unique_Titans_R28.2B

Hard to tell right away, because rubies vary from player to player. So I’ll base this on my own situation – I have a total of 120 rubies found (and bought), which boosts my C340 by 605, making Gem Grinder jump from x50 to x655. In other words, it’s a +1200% (or x13) boost to overall production. In theory, this is slightly better than C375 (Lightning Rod), which is a x11 boost, but only over a long run. On a short run, the quality of life thing of having LS always hit HoL is worth more than just x11, but it’s hard to put into numbers.

Still, back to C340 – it’s a x13 when you have about 120 rubies, and that is still not much better than C375, and much worse than any other Craftsmanship upgrades you can take (which in my case are all in x20-30 range). C105, C120 and C150 take a few runs to build up, but by the time you get to this build they should be good enough to outperform other upgrades in this tree.

tl;dr C340 will be better than C375 over long runs if you have 120 rubies or more (the more rubies, the more difference in favour of C340). C340 can replace other Craftsmanship upgrades when you have 200 rubies or more.

If he saying it sucks. Then he probably isn’t that far. But i agree with you Audaces it is pretty good.

Well, he never said what reincarnation he was, did he? Now it is clear that Brainwave at some point becomes very good.

You must also have the True Night upgrade (unlocked by casting Night time between 6 pm and 11 am).

Topic: Realm Grinder / Unique Titan research build R28+

Maybe – if you play actively and know when LS will hit HoLs, and you’re on a short run (which is until you get first Miracle+HoL hit). Otherwise it’s irrelevant. Saying that C375 is a 30x bonus is an overstatement, and is definitely not true over long runs.

In other words, it depends on your playing style how good this bonus is.

Also, if one is really patient, it makes sense to take something instead of C375.
Then for production it will be necessary to wait for both miracle and lighting strike to influence Olympian Halls, but the result will be worth it.

If we could predict both Lightning strikes and Miracles, it would definitely be worth it. With only Strikes being predictable, we’d have to sit and watch and wait for Miracles to hit to unleash full combos every 20 minutes on average. If we are afk autocasting, C375 is something like a 40x multiplier.

There is one difference – with C375 bonus from Lightning strike to Olympian Halls is much lower that usual. I remember that someone wrote that the bonus is only 1000%.
Currently my multiplier from Lighting strike is 39370. So if I take something else instead of C375 and wait for the “perfect moment”, the difference will be quite serious.
But waiting for this moment is indeed tedious :(

The only thing that C375 does is ensuring that HoLs get hit every time – which means eliminating the 1/11 chance for that, and hence the x10 production bonus. There is no increased multiplier or anything of that sort. It’s ok for short runs, but over time it might be better to get something else – for long runs both C400 and C200 might be ok (C200 for very long runs, though), and for donators C340 will be better (when you have bought at least 100 rubies). Waiting for LS and Miracle to hit HoLs will take a while, but it evens out in the end.

Topic: Realm Grinder / W180 or W400?

Wouldn’t it be valid for sheer production as well? Non-unique goblins, relying on Hell portals, would benefit there as well. Non-unique elves too. And NU Undead. The only factions that get less bonus here are Faceless and Fairies, and maybe Druids, although I’ve seen W400 in a good druid build and it seemed to be better than W180.

I’m finding unique Titan(+titan line) a bit slow… getting really grindy towards the final e100s…

Have you tried Angel line Faceless? It’s definitely worth trying.

The event lasts until January 5th, so there’s about 15 days for everything. I understand that you get a gift on day 1, 4, 8 and 13, isn’t that so?

Hi can someone tell me what exactly I need to have/do to get That Excavated Quickly secret trophy?

just don’t excavate until you have a lot of gems, and can buy 1k excavations under a minute

Actually, it’s just 30 seconds. An easy way to see if you can do that is to reset your excavations, abdicate, immediately cast Call to Arms to get your timer going and start purchasing away. At the end of 30 seconds go to Excavations and see if you can get the 1000 excavations needed for the quest. I don’t know how difficult it is in earlier reincarnations. I did mine at R28 with 1 Qitg gems, just before reincarnating.

Yes, I can see that now. Silly of me not to read that description.

About another thing: is there a way to get that 1000 snowballs I got off the adventurer for rubies? I got them soon after the event started, and I understand that snowball total does persist through abdications? Should I PM you, devs?

Edit: solved.

Topic: Realm Grinder / Realm Grinder: Christmas Event

I just got a 36h timewarp and I didn’t get any extra snowballs – is this intended? Just asking, I needed the warp to complete the very tedious 5d total titans time, so I would have got it anyway, but it would be nice if I got some extra snowballs out of it as well.

Topic: Realm Grinder / Realm Grinder: Secrets of the Ancient [Full Patch Notes]

When you get the 10k mana you unlock the research. When you buy it (in the same or in the next runs) it will work by increasing your mana based on current mana – when you have 0 mana, it increases mana regen by 50%. Essentially, it works during the production phase, when you’re spamming Tax Collections, and between production it helps a bit to get your mana up.

Don’t know how much of a boost this is, though, but it’s definitely more than just 50%.

Until you get access to tiers 375 and 400, U Faceless with Angel line are the best of all three neutral factions. Got from 1 Ttg to 1 Qatg in about 8 hours.

If so, it’s a +300% bonus to production. Not much, considering its high tier.
