I can confirm that you DO break the combo for the purposes of the Perfect Combo trophy /only/, by casting other spells inbetween. I did not unlock the trophy for myself until the spell’s info said I had used it 131 times. And 31 is right around when I remember breaking the spell combo. So don’t be fooled by the fact that the spell’s bonus and counter remain steady. If you’re going after the trophy, you ARE breaking your combo.

Topic: Realm Grinder / [Minor Feature Requests]

The Drow upgrade Blood Sacrifices was recently improved from 2% to 2.5%, but while it seems to be working as intended, and the overall % in parenthesis is correct, the description still says it gives 2% per building.

So that’s why it looked so familiar!

Pretty great drawings you’ve made. I love that they’re just standing on a pile of gems. ’cuz if you have one billion of them, where else are you gonna put them?

Topic: Realm Grinder / Simple Suggestions

Blood Frenzy does not increase production by 1000x, it does so by 1000%, which amounts to, if my understanding is correct, 11x production. So they’re not particularly unbalanced at all.

Topic: Realm Grinder / [Survey]Players Tastes & Achievements

  • What is your favorite faction?
    Fairy. I’m a fan of the backwards methodology, focusing on the weaker buildings until even your farms outproduce Hall of Legends. It makes for an amusing twist on the expected outcomes.
  • What is your least favorite faction?
    Undead. While this was my starting faction, I was disappointed very early on. Their upgrades lack any sort of punch, and even their iconic time-based production bonuses fall flat fast compared to the much faster, more powerful bonuses of the other races. It’s just not worth waiting long enough for them to build up.
  • What is your most played faction?
    Demon? These are hard to remember. I’ve swapped around a great deal through my time here. They may be fairly well balanced out.
  • What is your least played faction?
    Undead, for sure. I played it once as the first faction, and once again later to unlock the trophy and Heritage. I have not gone back since.
  • What is the highest amount of Gems you collected (your current amount of Gems if you had never Hard Reset)?
    51.45 Qa gems.
  • What is the highest amount of Coins you collected (your Total Coins Gained amount if you had never Hard Reset)?
    1.324 Qad coins.
  • What is the highest amount of Buildings you owned (your Max Buildings Owned amount if you had never Hard Reset)?
    7621 with Goblins. Somewhere around 6700 without.
  • What is the highest amount of Faction Coins you collected (your Total Faction Coins Gained amount if you had never Hard Reset)?
    24.26 M faction coins.
  • What is the highest amount of Spells you cast (your Total Spell Cast amount if you had never Hard Reset)?
    22,163 spells cast.

    Topic: Realm Grinder / [Minor Feature Requests]

    With the recent addition of Diminishing Returns to the Call to Arms spell, the description has become inaccurate, as it still says it adds a flat 0.3% per building. Could this be changed to somehow reflect the update? I would suggest a better wording, but everything I have considered would be just as bad in some way.

    Topic: Realm Grinder / [Minor Feature Requests]

    I feel like the game needs a little message that pops up when you first purchase one of the three relics that unlock the Neutral factions. Something along the lines of “You have now unlocked the ____ Faction! You may now choose them upon any future soft reset.”
    This would help those, like me, who aren’t quite certain they’ve done everything needed. I for one thought I would have to assemble an entire Titan statue before it unlocked for me. A quick question to the room chat solves the issue, but it’d be better to solve it at the source, I feel.

    Topic: Realm Grinder / The new update

    And even though it’s comparatively minor, the pre-1B gems people did get changes. There were many balancing changes made to factions like Goblins and Undead, and some to Elves and Angels as well. So it’s not entirely without updates. Hopefully it’s a bit more balanced as a result as well.

    Topic: Realm Grinder / [Minor Feature Requests]

    I thought it might be a good idea to make a page specifically for the little requests, so they’re easy to find and so that they don’t take up too much space from the rest of the topics. So please post any little changes you’d like here.

    As for me, I would greatly appreciate it if the Numpad were also usable to autocast spells. I have an odd method of clicking, wherein I use both my left and right hand on the mouse, and click faster than I normally could. Since everything’s focused on the right of my keyboard, it can take as much as a full second out of my 8 for Fairy’s Chanting to press the button and then position my hands just right. I run into a similar problem if I try to click the button and then reposition the mouse quickly over the treasure. Having the hotkeys right where my hands are would save a slight bit of time that would very quickly add up.

    EDIT BY DEVS: Please use this for Minor Requests only, like rewordings, additional tooltips, minor balancing suggestions, etc.

    Topic: Realm Grinder / Upgrade bug

    I’ve noticed this same problem in excess since the update, and a friend of mine has had it as well. My best guess is that there has been a change to what qualifies as “clicking and dragging” for the purposes of scrolling through the upgrades page, so clicking normally is being misinterpreted as that and causing the upgrade not to be bought.

    Topic: Realm Grinder / Hidden Trophies Guide

    Very nice to have these all in one place, so easy to find. Great job putting it together, and I like the little How To sections. I do have a couple things to point out though. On “Exchange Master”, Elves can only multiply faction coins x4, not x8. And for “Lucky Neutral”, the time spent as Neutral is 7,777 minutes as opposed to 777 minutes. Everything else seems perfect. Thanks again for making this for us all.

    Topic: Anti-Idle: The Game / [Guide] Epic Skills

    Today I decided to check in on anti-idle’s forums, and I learned that my guide was out of date. Well, that wouldn’t stand…so I fixed it up. Values updated to reflect the new cheaper price, and added in info about the perk and quest. Hopefully this’ll stay up to date for quite a while, and continue to help those who enjoy having information.

    When attempting to fight in the Battle Arena, the game lags so badly it is impossible to pick up any items, and difficult to even leave the battle arena.

I have not noticed it in any other parts of the game. Other games on Kongregate do not lag either; neither do any other websites. I have tried refreshing the webpage (several times), restarting the computer (again, several times) and even defragmenting my hard drive just to make sure it is not my computer. The problem persists and it is only in game.

    Such an annoying problem. It’s caused by an update in flash which somehow makes things significantly worse instead of better. Try this link. Downgrading should fix everything up.

    If I’m wrong, just ignore me. :P

    I’m severely confused, Zak. I still have that moment on my chat log, and you seem to have replaced something Aurian said with that line instead. Or is the deal that it changed without your help?

    There’s also a quest that tells you exactly how many feeds you’ve done that day. It’s an extra click, sure, but it’s far more precise, for those that prefer precision.

    Originally posted by lackinglack1:

    Like i said, i do basically everything you said. Yet im +19. The only thing i can think of is constant activity and the whole thing about exploiting pyramid and the old instant prog costs. But i pretty much started noticing how overpowered instant progs used to be and used them a bit. But yeah of course i always use 2x, have similar or actually higher reward stats, i dont actually use the exp temp perks though, and i have almost every useful perm perk now (at least for levelling). Maybe it comes down to adventure spam or something else weird. Also you said this “usually to level 2000 or till I feel like—it doesn’t take that long. Then semi-idle HC NCI/PC or idle PC with dark ruler”. That seemed to indicate at level 2000 you went to PC or NCI? Anyway, im just trying to understand how you went so fast. Cuz i already spend way too much time on this game and it just amazes me how some people blow me away speed wise, like they have these uber powerful secrets that i know nothing about somehow

    Aside from overlooking some obvious difference between your two strategies, there’s also the possibility that you’ve just not played near as long as he has. Feel free to compare Play Times, and see if that solves your problem.

    Topic: Anti-Idle: The Game / [Guide] Business

    If you do lots of shots, might want to link them instead of post the full picture. that’ll get crowded fast.

    Also, you’re missing a step. When you reach the 1.5x multiplier, the 1.3x one still applies first. You get both. After factoring that in with the score/25, I got 18,464. Which is actually one off. weirdness.
    Randomfruit is definitely /500. Fertilizer looks the same as mega, in that it rounds up now instead of down. Which would explain why you have one despite the score.
    This new data really helps. Thanks :D
    Edit: Updated the main guide to show sections that haven’t been fixed yet. I went ahead and said that gardener is fixed, though there may still be a detail or two that needs ironing out.

    Topic: Anti-Idle: The Game / [Guide] Business

    I propose the following changes to gardener’s formula based on Alman’s testimony. If anyone can prove these right or wrong, or offer any changes of their own, please do post here.

    Anyway, Gardener:
    Garden Points went from (score / 10) to (score / 25). The multiplier bonuses apply as they did before.
    Mega Fertilizer seems to have gone from floor(score / 100,000) to ceil(score / 500,000). An odd change, but it fits the data nicely enough.
    I would also assume that fertilizer suffered a similar change, but I can’t figure out exactly, since it is maxed in that picture.

    Simple lag. The game incorrectly tracks the location of the mouse, so even though you’re over the loot, it doesn’t get picked up. I had a lot of experience with this before I downgraded flash.

    Is there a list anywhere of which booster packs can contain which cards? If there’s not, I’ll make one. with SSF and a simple notepad file it’ll be easy. Just potentially long and boring.

I have spirit armor fused with elite armor, a ranged weapon with 752 ATK and 24 speed, a fully leveled out silver amulet, a Reflect Ring, and pretty much 95% of the skills involving ATK maxed out. Even with all of that, I still can barely idle in casual Dragon Cave. I don’t really see how I can up my ATK a whole lot further.

    Also remember that sometimes you just can’t handle a zone. If nothing you do works, then simply wait and level up for a while first. It’s a long game, and the time between one zone and the next gets longer every time you advance.

    Topic: Anti-Idle: The Game / Strange slow on BA

    I had this same problem maybe a week ago. The game would practically stall when selling more than two items at once, and weird things were happening to my chat as well. I went looking on the forums for a solution, and found one. This website will tell you how to revert to an old flash version (The new one is why you’re lagging so bad). http://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/flash-113-crashes

    If you’re aiming for the highest score possible, then yes, idle as much as possible. The formula calls for “Activity”, but in the case of Idler, it’s actually Inactivity you want. So long as you’re gaining career exp, you’re doing the right thing.

    I’m feeling generous. I dug this up for you guys.

    if (difference == 0 && timeBonus >= 5) {
    multiplier += 1;
    }

    timeBonus = Remaining time when you last change your answer in seconds, maximum of 10.
    skipBonus = 1 if you press Space before the hint, 0 otherwise.
    difference = The difference between your answer and the correct answer.
