Topic: Cloudstone / Guild problem

Try Sinister Duck. We’re very much alive, currentlly in 4th place, and active members are always welcome. Also, make sure to only apply to ONE guild at a time, because when you apply to several at once, only your last application will be valid!

Topic: Cloudstone / Suggestions

Thanks for giving me hope! I probably can’t beat it because I have no patience for this kind of thing… spending ten minutes of my life on one of their exasperating boss battles… again and again until it finally works out… not my idea of fun. But maybe some day when I’m in just the right mood…

The game appears to be on their back burner now, little maintenance needed, it’s just supposed to bring in cash at this point.

Topic: Cloudstone / Suggestions

Please do away with ridiculously hard boss battles as a prerequisite for unlocking more islands. I’m a level 47 (non-paying) wizard with the best staff available in the game at this point, and would certainly do well in Mondomesa. But I can’t get there because I seem to be unable to beat the kraken unless I respec as a monk, as all the hints and walkthroughs recommend. So how am I supposed to still enjoy this game when I’m forced to grind the same levels over and over again, with no hope of ever advancing? Exploring all those places is what makes this game fun and worth playing; everything else is just tedious repetition on the long run.

I suggest making the accessibility of new places in the game dependent on your level, not on beating specific previous stages (or, better still, both: either beat a boss if you can, or reach a certain level).

Or, at least, give us an option to spend a few rubies on skipping one of those mandatory fights!

Also, there are way too few islands on the whole for a game that you’re supposed to keep playing. There weren’t even any holiday specials (such as Valentine’s Day and Easter) since last Christmas!

Topic: Cloudstone / The Official Guild Recruiting Thread

We’ve already improved our guild by picking up some rifters who weren’t happy with the strict “rules” they encountered elsewhere… others are always welcome to join. :-)

Well – at Sinister Duck, we get along without that kind of pressure, we’re a bunch of happy, self-motivated, laid-back quackers, and still usually one step ahead of you – so why on earth would we choose to give that up and be subjected to such strict requirements? :-D

Topic: Cloudstone / Twin Cutters, Peace Keeper 3.0, or Hammercrux 3.0?

Jubilation isn’t hard to obtain if you want a decent wand, no need to develop it further if you’re not a wizard. You can still get either Peace Keeper or Hammercrux as well, all you need to do is pick yourself a bunch of Enchanted Leaves in the jungle – you’d need 60 in all for both, that’s easily done.

Topic: Cloudstone / Octopus' Garden

Yes, there actually is a safe place. You probably won’t get hit if you stand right in front of the octopus’ head.
