Topic: Sorcery Quest / Beginner party quest

I’ve seen this game starting with a choice of ready-made parties of 3 people. Now I started and I get only one character? Is there any way to get the initial 3 now, apart from buying character medals?

Topic: Sorcery Quest / Barbarian hit problem ?

If it halves the damage of each weapon, what is the advantage of using 2 weapons? Just wield the stronger one, and your damage goes up?

Topic: Call of Gods / Multi-Account Rules In COG

Saving a formation for war is nice, but it would help a lot if we simply could lock in to war, similar to how we go to a coliseum or ancients’ blessing. These work while we are offline, as well. And offline fighting already is implemented, as defending your castle proves. But okay, that has its own saved formation, too. So maybe yeah, we need to have a saved formation for war purposes.

How would you see that? If two computers share the same internet connection, they will have the same IP address outside the house. Only the router in the house can distribute the internet traffic to the correct computers.

Topic: Call of Gods / Rules / TOS

I guess you live in a time zone where the alliance wars fit nicely into your daily routine.
I guess, your war isn’t at 5 in the morning.
Of course, the outcome of alliance wars would be different. Only American alliances could actually play and win anything, that would be the difference. Call me biased because I am European.

Of course, the war times are another long standing problem with CoG, that never gets addressed at all.

Yep, if logging in European players for alliance war is forbidden, you can as well exclude that continent from CoG altogether. And Africa as well, plus West Asia.

Topic: Sonny 2 / Not using the "right skills"

Shadow playing works very different from electric playing. When I finally understood how it works, I found shadow builds to be the safer way, even. It is not inferior, but it’s a bit more demanding, requires more versatile tactical thinking and quick decisions.

I also thought this was a hard battle with this particular build. If I play it this aggressive, I don’t use wraith form, but up salvation earlier instead. But now – keep Veradux on salvation, and set Roald to Phalanx when somebody is low on health. He can cast his shield then. Also, try to keep the middle guy stunned 2/3, so he can’t vascular arrest you so much.

Again. Looks like I have to reload each time I level up. Not good.

Topic: Clash of the Dragons / Noob help.

I have a noob problem, too…
I can’t seem to spend my skill points anymore. For example, one skill said, needs lvl 6 for next rank. Now I am level 6, but I cannot add to this skill. The hint is gone, though. I think i have enough free skill points, too. This has happened several times already.

EDIT: Wait, wow – reconnecting solves the issue? Now I can spend points? It shouldn’t be like that?

There is a premium skill for that. If you don’t have premium, you can’t.

It seems to depend, what exactly do you want to amplify? If you want to boost a certain special, use pure gems. If it is all about damage, range % firing speed, use mixed gems. If your final killer gem is yellow/lime in a tower, most people prefer a strong boost of the yellow component.

GCL is different from GC0 in several ways. Here, chain hit in traps seems to be the strongest thing at all. Red here has nothing to do with red there. Red, the bloodbound gem, is rather weak compared to the yellow/lime dual. Mana farming is done with orange/lime gems, and it’s much more effective in the long run than it ever was in GC0. But the runway for take off is longer. Mana farms start to work well at grade 12-ish, but need only one trap per entrance.

Triple gems have higher bonuses than dual gems. Pure gems have no advantages. With your non-premium account, you can use the dual skill to rise the dual gem bonuses over the triple gem bonuses.

I like the new playing field’s look. I’d like to live in there…

Topic: GemCraft Labyrinth / Anyone need help?

I support her suggestions about maxing chain hit, deadly traps and mana gain 100%. These are essential.

The other point is, how do you play it out? You need to anger the waves carefully to what you can handle. You can build your trap gem with chain hit at the core, first. Upping chain hit is much more effective than upping mana gain, to a certain point.

Triple gem mastery? If you play with triple gems, sure. If you use dual gems, of course not.

Don’t worry about the gold buying. The confirm button does absolutely nothing. They don’t want my kreds on server 7. (And yes, I have enough kreds for what I wanted to buy.)

Maybe not on kongregate, because you can’t play hydraulic on kong. But they are on armorgames’ walkthrough forum. :)

Did you check the hydraulic guides? This one is psycho.
But anyway, level up to 30, and best use an all-out aggressive skill set from the hot side for this. Bring Felicity and Roald. If I remember correctly, though, with level 30, it even works with a cold hydraulic. Build up shatter and crystal ice to max, as well as glacier. You don’t get the achievement, though, just win.

Yep, mana farming wasn’t nerfed but made stronger.

Topic: Call of Gods / DEF and VIT issue answer me call of gods

Seems like they are using a wrong formula then? Defense should not depend on the number of people attacking, but on the number of people defending, or on the number of hits that the attack does. Maybe rather the latter. If the boss hits 1000 people in one army, they all defend.

Topic: Sonny 2 / Ideas about defeating Galiant the Paladin in the 1st Sonny?

How about equipping more sensible gear? Breaker’s gloves for a destroyer? Makes no sense at all. Why don’t you buy the knight gloves instead. Get stuff with strength and vitality. You don’t use magic there. Veradux needs magic stuff and some vitality for healing. A bloody blade only makes him weaker. Best for him would be the mender’s gear.

Your skill selection – magic bolt is worthless for destroyers, but a prerequisite for the electrobolt. Which you did not buy, though. On your action bar, I’d replace the disruption by another wound. Stacking wounds is good: Seems to damage more than smash, and is cheaper. You can’t kill him off quickly, anyway. It’s about grinding him down.

Topic: Sonny 2 / Need tactic for Councils.

Crystallize one before you kill the other.
Either you can kill him in one turn later, or he forgets to put on his emergency state, or you play crystallize – leading strike – infect (right before cr. runs out) – repeat (or throw in a break).

But you can wait until you get those max HP waves. If your gem eats them right away, you may leave.

The dot turns AFK mode on. And I have a qwertz, too.
Never found the appropriate ~ key, though.
