Topic: Realm Grinder / Archwizard hopefuls

Started and completed the trophy at R43 at around 10 Sp gems. 5200 Goblin Banks was not difficult to get, and the whole thing took about 11 days, but that included about 3 days offline. I did start off with a 5 days time warp, but I got only about 50k spells cast, so you in the long run it was irrelevant (except maybe for the headstart I got on S30). Buffed Mana addicts didn’t change much for me, because my mana regen was already close to mana cap when it came out.

Needless to say, completing the challenges after I got the trophy was a breeze.

Topic: Realm Grinder / DONE!

Brag? Fine. Completed all event quests, got all the unique eggs, moved from R38 to R43. Will likely make it to R44, too.

Topic: Realm Grinder / Suggestions for 12hrs Neutral? (D480)

The only thing that carries through reincarnations would be faceless time for Hive Mind… I don’t think 5k buildings is possible at R34 (well, not Pyramids at any rate) so if you’ve got nothing else to pursue just switch to faceless and get extra 12h on them.

A120 is much better than A150 for Dwairies. Also S1 scales to slowly for a short build. S200 seems better instead, but may be wrong on that one. Obviously S590 asap.

How so? A120 adds about 250-300 assistants, which in most cases only doubles your number of assistants. That’s it. In other words, it doubles your production (ok, it adds a bit more through bloodline etc., but that’s negligible in this argument). Let’s say that all in all it improves your production by x4. A150, on the other hand, very quickly goes beyond 500% bonus, and – depending on how long the run is – can easily be pushed into something like 15000%.

Tried to excavate with drows, but no success.

I too am missing two artifacts and they seem to be the post-ascension one and the drow one. Are there any other requirements apart from playing as drow? I got to 3412 excavations now and still haven’t got it.

I got it after Excavation 2750, playing as Titans. Now I’m off to see if I can access Drow research.

Have you got it? What are the requirements? There’s nothing in the game that would offer as much as a cryptic clue about this.

I think you need an artifact.

Well, the tooltip says nothing about it being just a part of getting access to research, it just says ‘Also allows access to the Resarch facilities’. If there’s an artifact needed as well, the wording of the tooltip could be a bit clearer. Besides, I just reset my excavations, excavated to 2200 or so and still got nothing. Not complaining or anything, just saying there might be a bug here.

Topic: Realm Grinder / R31+ wanna talk about it.

R32 – went from Ocvg range to R33 with a 3 days faceless run. On reflection, I see I had wasted quite a lot of time building mana for Primal Balance and building up S400. Never really used those, except to see if they’re any good. They weren’t – not when there were Faceless around. I think that even now I won’t be needing mana and spells buildups, and a decent faceless run will take me to R34.

On a different note: What’s happening next on Realm Grinder? I realize that it might be a bit early to ask that, but DG so far has had an excellent tradition of keeping us informed about their plans and it would be great if they kept things this way :)

@Nilloe – thanks for that analysis. It’s very useful and has pointed out some good clarifications for me.

Could you comment on whether C340 can be interpreted as a straight multiplier? At what point would it be superior to C200 for a long run?

C340 is a straight multiplier – divide (C340+50) by 50 to see how big it is. My C340 is 660 (132 rubies total), so that’s around x12 – which is less than my C200 (x16 at the moment). Unless you have bought rubies, C340 is usually worse than any other available upgrade at this stage.

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?

 
Flag Post

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.

Topic: Realm Grinder / Research builds - R16 to R25+

Originally posted by ExSilverWolf:

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.
