Topic: Endless Dream / Bugs

there’s a bug when switching classes and then reloading from a time before you switched. this bug greys out the class you switched to, so after reloading you can’t pick it again until reloading the game. since today’s patch there’s also something else that’s probably related to this, which causes you to have the skill amounts of the new class you picked on your old class after reloading. I’m not sure what causes the latter, it only happened to me once.

I’m at floor 4112 atm and I am planning to replace archer with another buffer. Archer is since debuffing became useless a while ago the weakest by quite a bit. I’ll prob try bard (perhaps berzerker). It’s almost time for another reset with about 1700 prestige points

try gambler, his damage gets pretty retarded with over 1k levels in the +min/max damage stuff and his buff is good too

I run alchemist / rogue / gunmage == Cleric / Mage / Archer.

which of your dps heroes is the weakest right now? I’m using almost the same setup, gambler/bard instead of archer/cleric, and I’m thinking about swapping someone for an archer but I’ve never used it so I don’t know how strong it is.

it’s awkward that they start at 0/10 and end at 9/10, could this be changed?

Topic: The Perfect Tower / Universal enemies make most of the upgrades pointless.

elemental piercing makes some effects go through but not all. especifically I know that either shadow or nature go through, probably both, and ice, air and (probably) earth don’t, though I don’t think I’ve ever seen earth do anything to any enemy. even so, elemental piercing still helps a lot because at some point you’ll be doing most of your damage through shadow and nature’s percentage reduction to life. in the case of auras, it seems all of them go through if you max universal aura.

the solution to black enemies however is to max purification, which you get on tier 1. it has a chance to bleach any non-white enemy (bosses too) turning it white. it’s still a bit random though, since it maxes out at 15%

Also, there’s a bit of a problem in the description here (at the right end of the picture):

The Dwarf spell upgrade being underpowered is more than made up for by Dwarf 4 being comparatively overpowered.

Ok, so you agree it’s crap. Better do something about it then, no?

Topic: Realm Grinder / W205 nerfed......NNNNOOOOOOOO!!!!!

It was a good change, I’m just a bit sad because they added another spells cast trophy and since goblins are still the faction that casts spells the fastest, this change makes that trophy take longer. Though now with that drow upgrade that adds assistants over time I’m expecting you’ll still be able to get W205 to grow to previously possible levels and even further over time.

You mean you thought it’d be Dwarf Fortresses?

I meant to say that the base building for their unique building (whatever it’s called) would be citadels and not blacksmiths.

Also there’s a slight… issue with A400 now. You can pick it before contracting drow/dwarves to get the benefits of your base vanilla faction before you prestige. I’m not sure if this is significant other than when playing goblins, though drow bloodline is kind of bad so the benefit is still kind of moot.

Topic: Realm Grinder / Reworking Bloodlines: Whats your input?

Originally posted by mpizza1:

Also keep in mind that everything post-ascension is going to be completely different from what we know and love about the game in its current state.

It’s not that different, at least where it concerns the balance between different production bonuses, so changing the worst bloodlines to be more appealing by giving them production bonuses shouldn’t really change anything. Anyway, I’ve been thinking about this issue as well, ideally I believe every bloodline should have a use somewhere (and not just some incredibly obscure niche use). Here are my ideas:

Elven: Currently there isn’t much in terms of increasing number of clicks other than autocasting moon blessing with autoclicker. This could make each click count for 2 or 3 clicks, or it could simply autoclick 30/sec for 10x rewards instead of 100x, or it could allow assistants to increase click count. A scaling boost to faction coin chance would be nice too, like increasing it by 2x AFTER all other faction coin chance bonuses.

Angel: Simply make it not decrease when not casting but make its growth slow down over time.

Undead: It could increase over time based on reincarnations instead of having a fixed value. It would make more sense considering undeads’ theme of growing over time.

Demon: This bloodline has a nice niche but it could be stronger. It could give some sort of production bonus based on trophies and/or maybe some faction coins per second and more mp/s. This way it would retain its niche but it would be much more helpful.

Dwarf: If the amount of assistants grew a lot faster over time and eventually became stronger than undead heritage it could be used for quite a few different things that require assistants. Or change undead heritage to grow over time and turn this into something cool and unique. Oh, the possibilities!

Drow: What if it increased combo strike while offline as well? Though this would probably be better as a research.

Faceless: I’ve never had to use this heritage for anything. If I need just a few quick coins to get heritages and some RE at the beginning of a reincarnation I’ll either excavate or use elven heritage. Elven is slower, sure, but it increases production too. My idea is to give it a production bonus based on faction coins found. It would synergise with the various faction coin sources from research and would grow itself even before unlocking research. If this bonus scaled relatively quickly but slower than angel bloodline so it ended with a value between titan and angel it could be an alternative for long games for players who can’t use angel.

can you “unspend” your rubies by importing a save? why not check drow bloodline after a year of being offline and try an offline build if it looks strong enough?

Topic: Realm Grinder / Nerf all the builds!

There’s also a pretty big problem when getting multiple upgrades that increase assistants, that they only add to each other, unlike straight % multipliers that multiply each other.

Of course, that would be a lot more complex to balance, but I can see the devs trying to do something of the sort, for example with the new druid upgrade that increases multiplier based on max mana.

Though to be honest I’d like the devs to work more on the balance between different factions first, which is also simpler to do than balance the 10^10000000000 different mercenary builds. Stuff like making faceless and fairies suck less, angels+dwarves being less overpowered, etc.

Fairies rule, you must not be playing them right. They’re better with dwarves than angels through e30 gems at least. Plus they’re a decent stand alone faction.

Uh, so I decided to try fairies and dwarves for the first time it turns out you’re correct. Oh well, that’s what I get for talking about things I know nothing about. But anyway, I’m more concerned about the fact that fairies alone are merely “decent”, as you said, as well as faceless outright sucking and, until a few days ago, titans being the only good neutral faction. I mean the kind of stuff that has a lot of impact for new players. Since they have a lot less knowledge of the game than we do, they should be able to have a good gaming experience regardless of the faction they choose, as long as they are willing learn the special quirks of each faction. This kind of early game balancing has no bearing for us, since pretty much all we do now is rush to mercenaries and then do whatever, but it’s the kind of thing that can drive players away if it’s done poorly. Also, depending on what’s changed, it could also enable a bigger variety of mercenary builds, which would be good for everyone.

Topic: Realm Grinder / Nerf all the builds!

There’s also something that bothers me quite a bit, the fact that nearly all upgrades that give faction coins per time period are completely worthless after the first reincarnation (and sometimes during the first as well) due to the fact that excavations give so many faction coins and you can simply save them and excavate for faction coins instead of always excavating as much as possible. Maybe if excavations granted an increasing amount FCs at the beginning of every soft reset instead of granting them instantly… but I’m going a bit off topic here. But seriously, those upgrades that grant like 20 faction coins per second make me cringe.

Rathler, I know it’s almost impossible that u read this topic (because u receive a lot of answers continiously)

But the archivement “coin pillage” is perfectly possible without mercenaries

U only need goblins + drow[…]

I read these, it just takes me a while to catch up sometimes ;)

I hadn’t included the whole goblin thing because playing for that long in a single run is highly sub-optimal, but I’ll go ahead and include it for completeness.

oh wow, that’s a great idea, I’d never have imagined it. I’d say it’s worth doing this in your first run if for some reason you want or need to wait those 5 days. I got coin pillage before my first reincarnation (by cheating) and it speeds up the beginning a alot for all factions that don’t have a steady source of coins.

I’ve been played this game since beta and I’m embarassed to admit that I still don’t know all the rewards. I’m talking about getting colour crystals every 100 waves, skill resets every 100 starting from 50, etc.

Could anyone enlighten me on this by providing a full list of these rewards?

oh, I have also found a way to speed up the game! but only in your head. buy cup holders and max it and you’ll see it. if you don’t have enough crates you can try Cheat Engine, but that one works outside your head too
