Topic: GemCraft Labyrinth / GCL: About Lime Trap Update

Just to clarify, from what I’ve experienced, it seems people think that having 10+ lime targets in a trap is useless. This is 105% not true.

Don’t forget, guys, Lime in GCL can chain onto the same monster over 100 times+. Thus, yes, it can only hit 9 per frame, but if you got say 50K chain, it will hit each 5500 times.

Hope that helped.

Uh…I seem to be hopelessly addicted to this. Another G41 wave 94(I beat my Nov 7 2012 Run!) at lvl 111.

Mind you, its pretty laggy even with just 320+(300) monsters. And only 1/6th the chain of my last run( 15k vs 98k). I’m facing it. The great terrible mana pool itself is the cause of lag…

Lol. I shouldn’t be surprised. At 3.9K multiplier about per frame(I think…idk about frames & such but it increases by that per second & waves take a LONG time to come…) that’s 3900 * 20(20 pools to get +1x multi) = 78000. So….that shouldn’t be surprising how laggy it is…78000 actions per frame not including anything but mana expansions…

I also made a video about 25 mins long(think its x3 speed) from the start till the G41 I believe…if anyone’s interested in watching what I do(o.o) post/pm me & I’ll upload both parts to youtube. I also managed to anger a wave to exactly 1337 monsters, which you can see in that vid. c: lol

Game broke when I stupidly summoned 6k monsters. That is, they were easy to kill but the game froze…

BAH I give up. G41 again & too laggy :(

Guess my comp degraded in the year I wasn’t playing GCL. :( sniffle

TBh tho some of it was my fault xD…I had 8k+3k monsters because I overeagerly angered. c:

15 quadrillion got torn to shreds.

A random wave 395 monster gave 17 billion mana 0_0

Wave 621 gives 81.6 billion
On an off note: I killed waves 700 through 1337 with shrines lol.

400k xp, lvl 91. Lets go back c:

Skills:
Focus – 42
Replenish – 42
Forge – 30/30
Construction – 10/20
Maxed – Multiple Damage, Chain Hit, Mana Gain, Dual Mastery, Flexibility, Wild Gem, Deadly Traps, and Recharge.

Battle Settings- Same as earlier, both banishments, faster monsters, giants only.

Decided to end it. Why? Lag was unbearable. & it wasn’t even lime. my trap was on the closest tile to the entrance. I never saw any monsters except when I upgraded. What made the lag was my mana pool expanding.

When you’re expanding at grade 41 by around a billion mana expansion per second, and your pool increases by 2250 or so per expansion, that’s 444444 expansions per second. Obviously, that lags the game. Lol. and the sound at 70 was so unbearably loud that I turned it to 5, so I barely heard gem creating noises….but still had quite a loud din of mana pool expansion noises. LOL.

So I shall try this again when I have more points in focus, or something. Or right after because now with my experience I can perhaps make less lag happen. c:

Bc it was fine at 900 million mana…at grade 29 or so. And I reached from 900 mil to 1.8 bil(for next grade) in like 15 seconds. XD. Now if I can dulplicate that somehow, all the time, that would rock.

Level 45, field C7, giants-endurance-banish-faster-other banish.

Wave 92, Grade 21 gem.

Could’ve been better but chose harder field then H11 and starting mana was like 1k & wild gem only 2 levels. :)
Main limiting factor(or awesome mana multiplier factor) is super low focus, I think 30 levels only(opted to put 27 level replenish, along with lvl 2 wildgem, max crit, max chain, max deadly traps, max mana, max forge, 10/20 construction). So it increases by 2.5k every time _

3.5 million mana & 86.1 multiplier lol.

Notes: Already reduced speed to 1×. Never less then 1.5k monsters at a time on screen.

How I do:

Start w grade 4 cyan/purple only near the 10 mana shards. Build it up while minorly angering(one G1 per every boss wave 3+, 2s & 1s too much hp w no resonance/crit yet) to 2x grade 4 duals. Then make them 2 grade 5 duals, unlock yellow & lime, make a G5 dual of that(I use at start 3 lime 5 yellow G1s to make, + upgrading it). Then I built it to a G7 & max amps & around 50k pool before I dared waste any killgem upgrading mana on a mana farm xD. The start was INTENSE, I nearly lost the no-monster-touch-orb amulet because I was slightly careless. Gotta remember this is lvl 45, not lvl 1295 c:

So then I unlocked mana gem & made 5lime-3mana G1 & got it to grade 8, & then it was standard endurance fare from that…I reached the rapidly-filling-manapool-once-per-start-stop(I call it Glowing Frame after GC1 c: since my mana bar is glowing) at grade 17. Trick is to upgrade equal 5-3 ratio of lime-orange till grade 8, then pure lime till G16, then equal lime-orange dual. Because lime is most important, so once you get multiplier up to a decent spot(80 for me, managain was only 8/hit & I was getting a grade 12 every 3-4 seconds already) then add a bit of orange to make it around 50-60/hit & watch it skyrocket lol.

Wave 96, Grade 25, one hit kills 57million hp mobs, & is literally getting me so much mana I can upgrade gem once/wave! LOL.

& my mana multiplier is 509 at 20m mana. Damn, I missed this! I tried to do it on armorgames(big mana run) & failed bc all setting at minimum & I was FREEZING for like 30 secs a time! :( & that was like at grade 14! _

& here, G25, & no lag with 2k monsters. I love kong.

One more thing. I only started to become laggy at medium settings +trap glare at 1k monsters & G18. Damn, kong is efficient xD

My gem now kills around 50 200million monsters/second & I’m writing this(editing) after only one minute. Gah, GCL is gonna make me faint in its awesomeness. I’ve missed it! :D

Leaving it for tonight.

Wave 90 – Grade 21
Wave 117 – Grade 40.

Yes. At level 45.

I think I deserve the title God :)

Damn, I rocked c:

Sorry for gigantic bump, but I’m gonna make another run like this on my lvl 1292 wiz on AG & post pics n video of it & probably don’t want to make another thread(combining me & frosty, that’s what, already 3 threads with the same run idea?(though 3 different runs).

For #4 don’t want people getting wrong info. Rest is good but #4. You should anger from the start, as much as you can as possible without being overrun. Even if you got no amps, at least bomb it with 4-5 G1s. At LEAST. Most of your mana from first 5 waves should go straight to gem bombing.

Source- I am Frostriver who a year or more ago used to play GCL very heavily, eg, I got like grade 40 gem I believe by wave 90 or so, & wasn’t realy a high lvl either(eg, not like lvl 2k) pics of that n others are deeper into forum.

Imagine how great Sharkhunter will feel when he gets out of the hospital if he has a thousand kegs everyone sent him.


Do it for Sharkhunter!

What region/coords are his dungeons in? And Kegs? Why not Turbo Miners lol. But I’ll send him anything you want me to if you tell me coords+region(better be castle hill as I have no idea who can stonegate in my fairly new region yet).

Wish you a fast recovery, Shark!

Hmm…

Game time: 60 hrs FREE. Yay!

+5 dollars

A movie+popcorn is what, 15+? For 2 hours or so?

the 60 hours for free is 30X time of a movie.

Don’t you think you should contribute to the dev because he gave you such a good bargain already?

AND THERE’s MORE!

STATS. You can try & beat your best stats for days, months, longer!

FREE.

A measly $5 gets you YEARS even of fun. Because it allows you to increase your stats even more! It’s permanent!

$5 for 1000+ hrs of fun! NO i’m not joking if I had to play a game for 1000 hrs at least, GCL would be what I play.

but the base damage is horrible.

i just beat an endurance (no monsters got through) with 1 tower. it was a red/yellow then lime 3 way gem, im not specced into triple gem mastery or chain hit but i had a tower with 100-300k damage, 97x damage 100%, 200% kills to damage and 100% to hit 47 monsters.

It was level 21 gem and it was stupid. i just went from level 100 to 118.

red is awesome.

Originally posted by Barclin:

the gem had 18000 + kills at the end.

100-300K?

18000kills*2=

Gem damage: 136-336K
let’s take 236K as an average

236K*97*47 = a possible 1,075,924,000 damage PER HIT.

Not bad, aye?

HOWEVER, a dual G21 YL

Will have 110x crit about(with amps but I think yours had amps as well?

and if even/even, about 100x chain

and damage would be less: 105k-290K(lime has smallest dmg range, yellow has medium dmg, red has highest maximum and is quite big range)

NOW: average is 197.5K

197.5*110*100= 2,172,500,000

YL is more than double the RYL

I would reccomend once you’re at that point to remove you mana farm and ctrl+click the next wave. it will force all waves to come down, and with no farm you’ll get no lag, as the farm is whats making u lag to 2fps. then just watch wave 1337 rush to you and enjoy the exp :)

HOW will i get mana in the quintillions that way?!@!!
