Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [The Grinns Tale] hints and tips - The Grinns Tale

Protip: Fight without potions. You’ll never have enough, you’ll have to wait that much more, and the game’s just plain more fun when you focus more on skill instead of spam.
Also invest in face paint, like the Lens of Looking, Shaman Face Paint, or Braveface. Really useful.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [The Grinns Tale] Pramin reward in Daily Quest

Sultan.
I’ve never received it either, and am insanely jealous of all who have. I’m in the upper 40s, getting quests to kill the Granders, and still don’t get it.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [The Grinns Tale] Diamond Farming: the Sh33p method

Drag, it’s not useless. It’s weaker, but because you can control how much your Berserkers are fed, you can always be guaranteed use of the bonus. Rage is a lot more unreliable, and to get the max bonus, you have to be perilously close to death. For farming, you’d want the more reliable Hunger Strike.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [The Grinns Tale] Crate Problem

In a word, yes. It’d probably be pretty simple for the Devs to do, but they won’t.
They want you to spend money to get pramins for keys, or just show up day after day for that free pramin, so they probably won’t ever make keys a drop. There used to be a lot of posts like this, back when the boxes first came out.
However, there is that one free pramin a day, so save up to get a key or two, and beyond that, nothing in the boxes is essential. You can easily play the game without ever touching a box.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [The Grinns Tale] GD Items Farming

This applies to all GD special items, but I’m currently working on the Rogue set. Since the GD items also drop from Notorious monsters, I was wondering if anybody knew if the locations you can find Notorious monsters in other dungeons is a more reliable way of getting gear than the GD itself.
For instance, I currently have a Rogue Turban and Dagger and need the shirt, so I’ve been going to Ironbound 2 to get Tom Thud. Any advice?

Yeah. The zombie AI is perfect-run at guys, try to eat their faces.
Could we please make the human AI a little smarter than them?

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [The Grinns Tale] Ideas/Suggestions

For selling items, there’s the fuzzlehorn. But I do agree, something else that does not require pramins would be nice, even if it won’t happen.

For multiplayer, I’ve heard that there are some issues due to the cycle based combat system. I don’t know how it works, so if someone could explain why that might cause issues, that’d be appreciated. And for adding it in at all, I actually do think it’d be cool, but it should be optional. No attacking other players who don’t say it’s okay, nothing like that.

More areas and more quests (or a better daily quest system), yes, wholehearted support.

Tell me if I missed any details. Your writing is a bit hard to read.

Topic: The Last Stand: Dead Zone / Suggestions

Alright, I have to agree that the nuke, at least as presented, does seem like a bad idea. But a co-op mission seems great, which is why I have an idea.
Once you get a neighborhood of level 20 people, you can get together and go on a mission to reactivate the local waterworks. There would be tons of zombies, since a lot of people ended up fleeing here as thirst became an issue, and possibly a small group of survivors, government workers who’ve barricaded themselves at the center of the waterworks and have stopped listening to anybody outside and instead will just try to shoot you, since you’re trying to “Get in and let all those damn zombies in here too!” Everyone who participates could get a ton of components and gear from the mission, and everyone in the neighborhood could now get infinite water and doubled vegetable growth (since you can now water it well).
Opinions?

On an unrelated note, I have an idea for getting pramins. Have a building that costs 10k each of wood and metal to build where you can trade loot like brooms or claws and items like armor or weapons for points. Each item is worth the number of pramins you can buy it for and points, and you can trade 1000 points for one pramin.
