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.

It’s unavailable, at least for me. Pleast post it from some other source.

It’s just a “I’m so excited!” music video

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

Topic: Transport Defender / empty room or waterpool

Discarding all the math, I prefer pool/cemetary just to see how high I can get the overdrive bar. Purely aesthetic really. . .

add black box to that monkey squad combo, it makes sure that (at max level) the HT is always more than half of your total damage

Topic: Transport Defender / Skills That Use Overdrive

Since battlestream caps out at level 10 (it says no max level, but you only need 10 for it to be full all the time), what if there was something we could do with the overdrive bar besides HT damage?
I was thinking we could use overdrive as a “warp to next boss” skill. (Star Trek FTW). And remove jumphole generator. I dont have complicated maths to show how this would work in a balanced way, but it seems like a cool idea and a reason to put more points in battlestream.

nice job, ty. You can also use the formula: N(N+1)/2 x base cost where N = max level

Topic: Transport Defender / Remove 10% DPS from Containers

The game is too easy with the 10% DPS from containers. I’m at 82,000% +/- from them and I’ve never even needed any of the features I’ve unlocked because my container DPS is so stupidly high. I dabbled with a few of them, but ended up selling them simply because the DPS boost exceeds anything I would have gained.

I suggest removing it or nerf it to like 1% so that the majority of the DPS comes from features, and not from containers.

….. but you need to build all of the monuments to get the divinity generator…

What I meant was I get all of them first of course :) sometimes it’s random how I play it out. usually I get impatient making mighties so I skip ahead and make some of the other monuments .

Topic: Idling to Rule the Gods / Best worth for money?

Guess no one here tried getting the third moon achievement? Creation speed is just as important as building speed so it’s best to keep them equal. I have 3350% creation and building speed, light and stone black-barred, but higher buildings and creations both equally take incredible amounts of time. (I don’t think monuments can blackbar) When you get to endgame creations and need to go for the 3rd level achievements to get green stats and realized you skipped out on creation speed for building speed, you willwant to quit when you realize how long endgame creations take.
The divinity generator times suck more than both though

the mighty statues are generally the easiest to upgrade, justifying the large number. now if there were only monument achievements. . .
