Topic: Tap Adventure / Big changes are coming...

Thank you very much for posting about what you are currently working on!

I love this game and I am looking forward to all of the upcoming changes.
However, I think it’s safe for me to assume that, most players have built their current specific artifacts to benefit their own unique playstyles which might be changed drastically after such an update. This would render some of the current artifacts to be more or less desirable. Since the meta of the game will change so much, along with the artifacts’ effects on the playstyle, would it be possible at all for you to create some kind of discount on rerolling the artifacts at least for a few days after the update? This would help the players adjust to the new meta more smoothly, as they would be able to reroll for artifacts which are more desirable considering the changes.

Once again, thank you for all your hard work!

PS. Is it at all doable to give us all the button to lvl the HP of all heroes at once before the update? The update is quiet some time away and leveling everyone one-by-one does get very frustrating(for the players who dont have the button it is the most time-consuming part of the game, which I personally enjoy the least), especially knowing that the solution is only a few(dozen?) lines of code away and a lot of the luckier players are able to enjoy the utility of the button.

Topic: Tap Adventure / Patch 1.0.5.18 Details????

Thank you very much for your informative comments!

As to lvl all hp button I’d suggest:
Unlocking it for all players, while only people who got it from the event get the discount when using it (maybe -5%,-10%,-15% for lvls 1,2,3 respectively)

If your main DPS dies, anything is useless :)
99% of the time main DPS will be alive I assume.

Topic: Tap Adventure / Bolas/Guerrilla?

got myself a Bolas, apparently it works exactly like guerrilla’s corpse explosion.

Topic: Tap Adventure / Tap Adventure Secret File

I have looped and got myself a Bolas.

The mechanics of this item are much different from what is currently in the spreadsheet(my guess is that Bolas was changed after it has been put into the spreadsheet).

Now the item works just like guerrilla’s corpse explosion:
“When any hero kills enemy, it explodes, dealing damage to other enemies.”
The damage done at lvl 6 of the Bolas is 20%.

Topic: Tap Adventure / The game is not going anywhere

I have done 10 timeloops. Highest run 721, have 19 keys in total.
Artifacts are(not in the order i got them): Master book, Energy cell, Teddy bear, Shaman’s bongo, Strange lute, Ogre’s mug, Bolas, Shadow Saphire. Also the artifact from second event.

Text below is based on the following facts: a) at some point you can only advance with keys. b) the damage from keys does NOT increase your magic dps. c) damage from chests DOES increase the damage from heroes’ offensive active skills.

1)It is even harder for the people who don’t have the artifact from the first event. Players with the artifact only need to click the “hp for all” button 4 times every 5 minutes (even if the heroes are dead). I have to click same number of times multiplied by the number of heroes, plus the scrolling time to get to all the heroes.
2)This can be avoided by doing very deep runs, where you only have to clear the bosses every time 1-3 of your damaging skills cool of. You just afk, or go to another tab(click damage is almost nil, as your main damage comes from the chests) Then every once in a while if you feel up to it, do that 130 or 290-deep run.
3)Skills are unimportant in short runs, the only good use for them is for the 2-star guerrilla/scavenger wall(~level 350), or the after 3-star guer/scav long-run grind using chests for dps. Quiet literally, you can only clear the bosses with skills at those points, and the game becomes more idle since you only need to click a few buttons every ~8 minutes. This makes Clockwork Pollen a huge convenience item for the long-runners.
4)Get Ogre’s Mug and let the friends click when you afk/on different tab. With the mug and friend dmg you can pretty much insta-kill any wave/boss, considering your main dps is up to speed.
5) That is indeed very frustrating :(

This is my experience of the mechanics of the game so far, around which I developed a playstyle I find enjoyable(but not completely painless).

I am at 709 right now, but only have 1 key left, so will have to loop soon. Let me know if you need any information/numbers even if just to compare it with your findings. Cheers!

Thanks for clarifying that! Do you happen to know if it stacks with the explosion damage from guerrilla?

Topic: Tap Adventure / Bolas/Guerrilla?

Greetings Comrades!

At the highest level Bolas gives 23% chance for a monster to explode on death, but anyone know the damage it does? Is it comparable with the guerrilla’s corpse explosion damage?

Suppose, you have BOTH: Bolas and the Guerrilla. Does a monster have 23% chance to double-explode(ie deal 2 explosions worth of damage) if one of your heroes last-hits him?

Would really appreciate to see any findings from the people who tried out this artifact, especially for the long runs.

Didn’t know that the levels of not swapped-in crusaders don’t count toward the idol reward. Thanks!

Topic: Crusaders of the Lost Idols / Suggestions

Thank you so much for adding the passive abilities to be bought with idols!

The button that levels all heroes does not work for the heroes not currently in the panel, but who can be swapped in. I am not sure if it was intentional, but it would be even more convenient for the players if those were included for leveling using this button.

Topic: Tap Adventure / For those who don't understand how important attack speed is

I haven’t tested out corpse explosion yet, except the one you get from guerilla. Will be getting Bolas as my next artifact though for 256 runes

Topic: Tap Adventure / Missed Event Artifact

For me the scrolling is the most annoying part as it is a little screwed up and over scrolls when i am using my trackpad. With a mouse it is still very annoying.

Topic: Tap Adventure / For those who don't understand how important attack speed is

The attack speed meters A LOT when you are opening chests when you hit a wall. Chest dps does not increase your magic dps, so until you are through the wall you basically rely on your heroes with items killing the mobs. This makes hunter the best hero to open the chests for since she is the least likely to overkill mobs and you grind gold with her much faster when you can no longer rely on your magic dps.

Topic: Tap Adventure / Hero #2 and Hero #7 upgrade progression errors?

I like that gap to be honest. For me it is interesting to push through it with keys and I like how smooth the next ~200 levels after it are.

In my experience, it is much less than 2 days of grinding to get through it if you are using your keys correctly and you have good artifacts.

Topic: Tap Adventure / Hard Reset?

You will probably have to contact the developers for them to query the database to delete your entry.

Also, if you got the 1st event’s artifact (the one which enables the 1-button hp upgrade for all heroes) i would highly advice against doing a hard reset.

The easiest option would be creating a new account on kongregate and starting the game from it.

Topic: Tap Adventure / When to open chests?

I am somewhat new (8 loops). But I suggest start opening them up little-by little starting at around lvl 350, after you get a 4-star tier one hero.

When you get a 4-star tier 1 hero (conqueror/defender) the tier 2’s hero will be green, HOWEVER dont go for 4-staring your tier 2 as it’s a huge waste. You should go for 2-staring your tier 7.

This is my first run with 2-star tier 7, what i did was pushing with chests until my gpm was about 55nn, then i afked for about an hour and got my 2 star guerila which gave me a huge boost in dps, so now i can go without chests for a little bit.

This is not the most efficient way of farming runestones! Only go this far when you just feel like checking out how far you can get.
If you are new, just farm up some more keys and runestones to get at least the artifacts in this guide:

Also, here is a new very useful resource for players of all levels of experience:
