Topic: Kongregate / Changes to the Collabs section

im very sad to hear that kong is pulling the plug on their arts & sounds section. but if it means those resources can be freed up and put towards improving the site in a manner that best serves the needs of the majority of its users, i suppose its for the best

even tho i was a regular peruser and contributor to the section, i have to admit it wasnt as robust and put-together as say, newground’s arts & sounds. since i gather kong is not aiming to be the multimedia site newgrounds is, it makes sense for them to streamline their operation and keep things strictly flash game-based

so long collabs its been fun :)

Topic: Off-topic / daily acts of kindness

gee that didnt pan out too well haha

well rather than tell something that ive done, id instead like to share something someone had done for me recently. upon returning from lunch break during a particularly stressful day, i found that someone had placed a pretty origami crane on my desk. i dont know why but something about that little gesture lifted my spirits and made the rest of that afternoon go by a bit easier. so far no one at the office has any clue as to who put that there

Topic: Cloudstone / Gauntlet reward buyback options

thats an excellent suggestion, i think something similar should be implemented regarding other gear that can’t be re-bought w/ coins or rubies. like the contract stuff for example. its only a matter of time before i have a little misclick of my own and i end up accidentally selling my gauntlet gear or my precious pet kalaboo. gone forever!! :O

Topic: Cloudstone / nightmare fields tip

@colonel_panic, yeah its a little tricky. instead of placing the cursor in front of the pile, try keeping your cursor on the pile, steadily dragging it in the direction you want to go. this way, your character is less likely go around it, trying to “catch” the cursor on the other side.

the chars behave much like cats do around laser pointers in many cases haha, good luck!

Topic: Cloudstone / maps & directions for sun baked sands & whirlpool caverns in grotto

whirlpool caverns

sun baked sands

the info here can be found separately in multiple posts so yeah im aware of how redundant this is. its just nice to have it all in one place for quick reference :)

Topic: Cloudstone / nightmare fields tip

nightmare fields can be winnable if you follow this one neat tip: push that pile of candy against that giant boulder to your left! yep, all the way against it until it butts up against the edge of the map. the boulder grants your candy pile some protection from monsters spawning north and west of you so youre free to concentrate on the monsters coming at you from the other 2 directions

lol sorry about the naked guy

Topic: Cloudstone / Great Job Developers

sure, i was knocked down a few lvls but i’ll recover from it quickly. i actually enjoy replaying old zones now that im more experienced. getting the opportunity to respec and choose different equipment was pretty cool too. this little setback hasnt at all discouraged me from playing. im kind of bummed tho that i lost several items that have taken me weeks to farm. however the generous gift of shards and rubies more than made up for that :D

the cloudstone team did an excellent job recovering what they could and bringing the game back online. thanks again guys!

Topic: Cloudstone / ahh another grotto maze!

the maze in sun baked sands is even tougher! not to worry tho, thanks to the map and directions kindly provided by an awesome wiki contributor, the thing’s a breeze to get thru :)

re-posting it here for your convenience and as future reference for myself


Map through the Maze

Maps of 1st and 2nd rooms.
The first two caverns are simple, you can take either rune A or B and you will land to point C in room 3.
The big issue here is that there are two rooms that look identical.
Note: It is unknown if this method works for all Gauntlets for all users; it has worked 100% of the time for me. Grog 14:29, 12 October 2012 (PDT)
Starting from point C in room3:
Run up the path in front of you, to rune E on the left. You land in a room with sage shrooms.
Take rune J on the left, you land at a cross-road. This will put you in the second room (you can check this by running down and finding some gold piles and 2 Clay Pots).
Run to the far right, to rune N behind the Stoney Bloops.
Kill mudballs and kalaboo grass, go into rune X on the left.
Kill sage shrooms and take rune SP on your right.

Topic: Cloudstone / Potential missions for 1M exp/boost

ive only paid attn to my xp gain while on boosts. boosted, get about 200k+ xp on bandage man road. it takes me about 10 mins or so. i will usually head on over to sasquish road while that zone is cooling down. it’s not as profitable xp-wise compared to bandage road since it takes twice as long to complete and i get roughly the same amount of xp despite the fact the monsters are many lvls higher. i can gain about 600k-800k give or take during a single 50 min session (2 consecutive boosts).

what zones are better than sasquish road?

The big issue here is that there are two rooms that look identical.
Starting from where you enter the room:
Run up the path in front of you, to the rune on the left.
Run to the rune on the left.
This will put you in the second room (you can check this by running down and finding some gold piles and 2 Clay Pots).
Run to the right, to the rune behind the Stoney Bloops.
Go into the rune on the left.
Go into the rune on the right.

Topic: Cloudstone / life after 40

well im getting pretty close to 40. i know those awesome devs are always hard at work on new material but until then, there doesnt seem to be much to do after reaching the current lvl cap. thats why ill be “retiring” for the time being after i hit it.

since i probably wont be visiting this site any time afterwards, is there a mailing list players can get on so they can be alerted to major updates (new zones, lvl cap, etc)? im not able to find one on their website

Topic: Cloudstone / Nudity

i find it appropriate and mildly amusing when i summon a naked character (as a glitch — likely due to the api not loading it correctly or, deliberately — by players stripping them to exploit pvp) and then they say, “but i just showered!” haha

quote from dasupahplayer: “I don’t know if it is either brave or stupid to rush into quests without clothes.”

perhaps a little bit of both. this reminded me of joshua milton blahyi aka “general butt naked,” a real-life liberian war lord who’d go out w/ his troops to battle w/ nothing but their guns and their sneakers. he claimed his nakedness made him bulletproof

Topic: Cloudstone / grotto maze

that teleport maze in grotto was a bit of a challenge. its not really something i look forward to repeating in gauntlet mode. itd be a tremendous help if someone were nice enough to post a map or walkthru for it. darn my lousy sense of direction haha

thanks in advance :)
