what, precisely, does this mean?

After the primal boss update, when you earned a Hero Soul for defeating a primal boss, your stats wouldn’t update accordingly until you upgraded a hero. .

It is not true. Mine auto updated after defeated primal boss (i did not upgrade a hero).
I have not done ascencion too.

before or after patch 0.09?

version 0.08

yeah, apparently it got fixed in 0.09

How is the DPS bonus added on? Because when I get a hero soul from a primal boss I don’t see my DPS or anything becoming higher, so I’m kind of curious as to how this works.

You have to ascend with Amenhotep before you can get bonuses from hero souls. The last upgrade on Amenhotep gives you the ability to ascend.

he was talking about a hero soul he got from a primal boss, you don’t have to ascend to get those, however there was some problem with primal boss hero souls not registering right away or something, this was supposedly fixed in 0.09

Edit: “going two bosses out from your normal kill ability” what does this mean?

It means that your normal DPS cannot kill the boss before the one you kill with super clicks. Thus you are spending most of your in between time taking down non-boss creatures that take a while to kill just to progress yourself enough to be in reach of that boss.

ah, i see.

20% would still be far too much, maybe start at 1% and cap at 5%? or would this be another 30 sec duration 60 min CD ability?

Because you would have the means to kill the primal boss when you encounter it.

if you use all your abilities to kill a boss and the first 4 have gone off cooldown by the time you reach the next boss, why would those still be on cooldown if you kill the boss with only the damage abilities?

Super clicks would still be on cool down if you are spacing it half off from golden clicks.

and how would it not be if you used all your abilities on your previous boss?

That would be the point. If you separate out golden clicks and super clicks, you might not have super clicks when you need it. However, if you lump them together going two bosses out from your normal kill ability, you can then be able to get one or two kills over the 30 seconds while raking in enough gold to help you past the next boss (without super clicks) so that on the next one you push yourself to you will have super clicks and goldens clicks ready again.

you seem to be neglecting the fact that golden clicks + MD + Clickstorm usually earn you enough gold to push through the boss without using super clicks, at least until you get all of frostleaf’s upgrades and at that point it’s pretty much impossible to kill bosses without using all of your damage abilities and even then you’ll reach a point where DR spam is the only way to boost your damage by any significant amount.

when you farm for gold, killing is not beneficial, getting a kill or two actually earns you less than what you’d get if the mob survived the full 30 seconds.

Topic: Clicker Heroes / Third Post! Strats/Anything

don’t know where else to put this so i’ll just toss it here. X% DPS boosts from achievements are multiplicative and are added after all other boost including those of previous achievements. what this means is that if you have 100-S DPS and get a +5% DPS boost you’ll have 105-S DPS afterwards, regardless of how many hero souls, achievements, upgrades or whatever you had before you got that extra +5%.

.

this basically means that the bonus DPS from achievements is calculated in a way that gives the highest amount of added DPS possible.

There are two strategies. One is to keep golden clicks and super clicks timers half way off. Thus you would get gold from a boss, and then come back to it for the kill.

The other way is to use all skills at once on a boss, then kill the next boss with lucky strike, metal detector, power surge and clickstorm and then get the next boss with all skills at once.

I have found the latter strategy faster to go through the bosses, and also better in the event that you come across a primal boss.

how would that strategy be better for primal bosses?

It’s all about how you think of it.

Yes, double of double is quadruple.

But plus 100% is double too, but two times of that, you have a multiplication of 3 (plus 200%) xD

It seems you can’t use the plus-sign in a post <.<

yeah but x200% is also double, but double x200% = x400% = quadruple. +

Edit: ==+== <- this is how you do it.

I believe that is repeating what I said. 40% per click * 17 clicks per second = 680% per second. 30% per click * 17 clicks per second = 510% per second.

i was trying to point out that it’s not a slight difference, guess i didn’t make that clear enough.

Due to not having advanced far enough in the game, I haven’t been able to test this theory of mine:
First, use Energize.
Wait one hour without using skills.
Use Energize again (The one-hour rest was essential so that this Energize would be the target of the previous casting of Energize.)
Then, activate Clickstorm and click normally at least 5 click/second, which isn’t hard.
If my hypothesis is correct, Clickstorm should be affected by both Energizes and start giving (worst-case scenario) 30 clicks/sec.
I repeat, I have not yet tested this setup, so results are not guaranteed.

i’m currently in the process of testing energize on abilities, this is one of the tests i will be doing. it’ll be done in ~15 minutes.

Edit: it didn’t work on super clicks, so i highly doubt it’ll work with clickstorm, but i’ll test it once i’m done testing the other abilities.

If you are using all skills at once; then for optimal cash energize golden clicks. This gives 40% per click 200% per kill, slightly better than energizing metal detector which gives 30% per click 300% per kill.

actually, if you use golden clicks, metal detector and clickstorm all at the same time with 7 manual click per second; energizing golden clicks gives you 680% of that monsters base gold drop per second while energizing metal detector only gives you 510% and seeing as both of those outstrip the 300% you get from actually killing the mob, you gain less gold if you kill whatever you’re fighting then you’d get if the enemy would survive for 30 seconds.

so yeah, energizing metal detector is actually the worst choice to make for money grinding.

edit: also don’t use all skills at once, go for either damage or gold grinding.

In regards to your first question, it applies after the cooldown reduction of your hero souls. So, 75% CDR and then 15% of that number.

i really should have given that more thought :S yeah, it could be a bit interesting, an upgrade that starts out very powerful but becomes less so every reset, at least when considering flat time reduction rather than percentage.
Originally posted by bobejoe:

In regards to your second statement, yeah, that is kinda OP. What would you suggest?

5% maximum
Originally posted by bobejoe:

In regards to your third statement, I wasn’t planning on Noctus being the last hero, so the upgrade is (in my opinion) still viable.

well, makes sense, kinda like frostleafs +25% DPS to all heroes when he does 99,95% of your total damage.

Damn girls distracting me with skype messages and game invites..!

You’re right. xD

My math went wrong when I was thinking “double of double will be quadruple” instead of thinking in percentages. My fault! xD

nah, it’s the developers fault for not wording it correctly :P double of double is quadruple so if the abilities would work as described that’s how it would be. they really should change it so it becomes more clear just how energize interacts with each ability :P

there is no final zone, by hacking save files people have gone beyond zone 700. but yeah, the goal to beat is definitely zone 160.

Level 100: The Nocturne: Noctus gains his long lost artifact, reducing the cooldown on all activated abilities by 15%

this makes no sense since we also get that from hero souls. also; how would this stack with hero souls?
Originally posted by bobejoe:

Level 25: Nightmare Chains: Noctus’s Nightmares now reach past your current opponent and cause the next enemy you fight to lose 5% (+.1% per hero level, up to 20%) of their maximum health even before you fight them!

extremely OP, this would make even the activation skill upgrades look weak.
Originally posted by bobejoe:

Level 50: I Dream of Gold…: Noctus’s Nightmares now become a reality causing enemies to drop extra gold in fear (somehow this works). 25% increased gold.

like someone mentioned in the other thread, if noctus is the last hero, this pretty much equals +25% DPS boost, except it doesn’t help you kill bosses on time.

So in the end, energizing Golden Clicks is more profitable than energizing Clickstorm, no matter how much you click.

with the exception being 0 manual clicks, which would make energized clickstorm + golden clicks = clickstorm + energized golden clicks
Originally posted by Cryzer:

Now, one could ask if it’s better to then energize Metal Detector, since that would quadruple the end reward, instead of just doubling it.


So we’ll have:


1. Energizing Golden Clicks w/ Metal Detector
= 680


2. Energizing Clickstorm w/ MD
= 540


3. Energizing Metal Detector
(100g * 0.1p * (10c+7)) * 4 = 680


So the only one that’s at a disadvantage is Clickstorm.

that’s not how energizing metal detector works, metal detector is +100% gold drop which becomes +200% if energized.

so it’s:

1. Metal Detector + Golden Click + Clickstorm
100 * 2 * 0.1 * (10c + 7) = 340

2. Energized Metal Detector + Golden Clicks + Clickstorm
100 * 3 * 0.1 * (10c + 7) = 510

3. Metal Detector + Energized Golden Clicks + Clickstorm
100 * 2 * 0.2 * (10c + 7) = 680

4. Metal Detector + Golden Click + Energized Clickstorm
100 * 2 * 0.1 * (20c + 7) = 540

so energizing metal detector is the worst option, unless you’re killing mobs fast enough but considering the fact that you’re getting more gold per second than the mob drops and that mobs have a 1 sec spawn time, killing mobs with gold making skills active results in less overall gold. so don’t use your damage skills when farming gold :P

After the primal boss update, when you earned a Hero Soul for defeating a primal boss, your stats wouldn’t update accordingly until you upgraded a hero. Presumably this would be because prior, you only got Hero Souls from ascending, which means there didn’t need to be checks for how many souls one had all the time because you only earned them at one point. From what I can gather, they added something that makes sure your stats increase (cooldown, if applicable, DPS, gold bonus if applicable) happens whenever your soul count increases.

ah, i see, thanks.
