Kholai’s build on page 3 (its just a slight improvement from another build) is good for earning harlequin. Just swap out the faction upgrades that have already been used for ones that haven’t and you’ll get the trophy. For lucifer, there is no build that is accepted as canon, because you’ll end up with quite a zany build that isn’t really great at anything. Just excavate to get the most production increasing upgrades from the opposite faction until you get the trophy, then reset.

Topic: Realm Grinder / 2k Building Run

I’m going for all of the 2k building trophies, and I have 2 merc builds in mind. One, aim for low building costs with fairy/dwarf/goblin upgrades. Or two, go for a GG quick mana regen build. Or would I be able to make both of these work? I’m looking for ideas, thanks in advance!

Topic: Realm Grinder / Mercenary Build/Concept Thread

I didn’t see specific builds for getting the merc trophies here. I’m having a rough time trying to get them, can anyone recommend a build for lucifer, harlequin and assistant army? I’m on 3rd reinc.

It is confirmed to work on a soft reset. Dont earn any coins or buy upgrades/buildings for five minutes and you’ll get it. Basically just go afk for 5 min .

can you extrapolate on the mathematician trophy? is it 2 HoL, then 4 next building, 8, 16, etc. . .

Topic: Realm Grinder / time to reincarnate

If they come out with factions or major features that require a certain reincarnation level then I would do reincarnate. I’m just seeing a lot of “hard reset” bonuses in idle games lately, and its really just an unecessary way to stall the game for the players until developers can think of new ideas.

Topic: Realm Grinder / best faction for getting gems

It’s really difficult to put titans anywhere on a consistent gem gain guide. You can end up hitting farms/inns/blacksmiths all day, or hit mona 5x in a row. In my experience, after 5-10 qi gems, druids are better for several reasons: 1) You can triple cast by then. 2) You can afford the 400th HoL upgrade, which makes GB begin hitting it exclusively. 3) Because of (2), you can start buying mines, which provides an overall boost to everything. 4) Once druid catches up with FC and are now on the same playing field as titans, they will keep gaining more animal companions, while titan has no “gain-something-over-time” benefits.

At this point in the game, I just think that consistency/time > random luck.

Topic: Realm Grinder / Faceless Heritage Change

I made another thread about changing the faceless heritage to an increase in spell durations depending on how many times you used faceless, with a cap at maybe 20% or something. Brainwave is the longest spell in the game, so having a heritage based on spell duration would make sense.

Clicking doesn’t speed up the timer, just like clicking doesn’t give you mana, it just forces a ui update. It is based directly off of your game time.

You are right, thanks for clearing that up!

Topic: Realm Grinder / Gift of the heroes/kings.. Game enchancing or ruining?

I have both, but I saw it as getting a little something for a 15$ donation, not paying for a service. The blessings aren’t game-breaking, but are extremely helpful.

@Shadoweflash: yes, it does alter charged clicks, however at 2 clicks per second, not by very much. In fact, ignore charged clicks altogether, it’s not meant to fit into an active playstyle but more of a bonus for going idle. But if it really bothers you, you can turn off the autoclicker by disabling the blessing in the options menu.

Topic: Realm Grinder / Gaining gems for the 200 excavations

Thanks for the post, I think the hardest thing for me to remember is excavating before I reset!

I just have one gripe, I think that skipping mines as druid isn’t always the best option. Once you meet certain requirements, GB only hits HoL. After you have at least 1 Qi gems, bought all t3 upgrades, bought all heritages and have the 500 HoL upgrade, GB will hit HoL every time. This is because HoL upgrades begin giving a bigger production bonus to other buildings than to itself. Since you need to meet these requirements before GB starts hitting HoL, it is viable to skip mines until you can meet them.

I do agree that playing any other faction is painfully slow compared to titans. When you can buy all of the heritages after just a couple of lightning strikes, why would you want to wait hours and hours with the super slow FC gain?

someone is saying after the 150th excavation you dont get the gems back on soft reset. true/false?

PLease add the current charged clicks multiplier to the lightning strike tooltip, so we dont have to keep scrolling down the upgrades to see it. Thank you!

Topic: Realm Grinder / Titans vs. Druids and Faceless

Remember that skipping buildings increases the chance for a mines/monestary/HoL hit, but also increases a farm/inn/blacksmith hit, so its a double-edged sword. Overall, I think missing out on the extra assistants to increase the Cyclopean Strength upgrade is not worth it.
On the other hand, skipping mines on a druid run IS worth it.

Topic: Realm Grinder / I have got stuck...

I only click once when LS hits a strong building (mines/monestary/HoL), so my CC stays around 750% – 810%. I think this was the intended use for titans; that huge first click on the HoL/mines/monastery when LS hits it. . . any subsequent clicks during that LS will lose a significant amount of power.
I don’t know if this is the best way to do it, but I like it because it’s a unique feature. I’ve also tried clicking really fast when LS hits the main 3 buildings, but my CC usually won’t go above 250% or so with that playstyle.

Topic: Realm Grinder / Faceless Heritage

I think there are enough production increasing heritages, and faceless gives the worse production bonus. Unless you spam faceless dozens and dozens of times, you’ll only be getting a bonus of what a couple of royal exchanges would give you.
So what if the faceless heritage gave a 1% increase to spell duration for each time you roll faceless? it would have a cap at 15 or 20%. It makes sense since they have the longest duration spell in the game.

My FC chance also went up 5% when activated. I was playing druid when I got it, so I know that the FC chance increase wasn’t from an upgrade
