No. Just do the math. Unless you don’t think about min/max, cost, etc…. or unless you have everything else in the store, it’s a total suckers buy.

or just bring back the old one with 4 burst radius
then they will once again dominate the game like they used too in old days.so its not wise.

Yeah, bad choice to make Airships a 4 burst radius again, so an Attack/HP Buff is only necessary. They are weak compared to Gyrocopters and Mages.


agreed +1
plus if they bring back 4 burst we will have to change our layouts again and that would suck, just give them attack and health buffs.

Really, just giving them health and armor would suffice. The problem is their survival, not really their throughput.

Disagreed, airships have burst, and, to me, it makes sense that gyros have more hp.

Everything else, +1 :)

x2 gyros are far better than 1 airship even with the burst…but thanks! :)

There’s no situation where ships are even equally desirable as Mages for burst, gyros for mitigation, or any other combination in the game, and I was determined to find one.

They are broken.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Skyshard Heroes] Bug: AI bufs (w/ steps to reproduce)

What i noticed during conquest was that when i buffed my spire it was applied to all the assets my guild owned, i never checked if it was applied to unoccupied assets that time and after that it refreshed whenever we took a new spire.

Without really trying to replicate or prove this, I noticed the same thing.

Perhaps unrelated, I’ve been accused of buffing on the offseason by several different people… and I’ve only ever popped a buff once outside of Conquest. I thought they were retarded at first, but who knows.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Skyshard Heroes] Idea for a new hero

Nice. We need a Hero that auras +health and has an armor aura, imho. It would deal with boomers some, as Maxwell pointed out.

1)Agree, they need to rework on that either allow him to use relics while in wolf form or give him hp regen and armor.
2)Agree with this too, increase the bonus speed while in wolf form to 75% atleast then he can get 280(with speed gear) thats good enough or increase his base speed to around 125.
3)Howl gives attack to your army too,You probably used a low lvl howl , its aoe is less at lower lvls by the time you use it your troops will be out of the aoe.
4)you an use goggles to avoid the stun and continue attacking with the bonus attack from howl active.(you can get 2 hits done)

Also howl with boomers combo is too op, You could fix this by giving it 10 sec warm up, so boomers would have started attacking by the time you get to use it or add 40-60 lycan cost to howl and increase the amount of lycan generated from lunge to 15 again.

Yeah, I bought him on a Cit6 account and tested him there. Good eye sir.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Skyshard Heroes] What's Your Favorite Power?

Hands down, my favorite to use was Mecha Sight like the FP, when defending though. I liked killing their Colette before they started touching my inner base.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Skyshard Heroes] Fav hero + troop + relic combo

I changed mine up every time I got bored.

Jorund+30 jacks= Berserk + trumpet = lolquick

Seripha+14 Mages= Earth+trumpet = lolquick

Colette+2 rivets+24 gunjacks = lolcontrol

Those seem to be my go-to attacks.

Gyro rushing is effective too, but not efficient enough to have been a regular strat.

Castor is a interesting beast to play…. you have to be VERY careful with him.

Lots of army damage potential, but when he goes werewolf, you can’t use ANY skills or relics. all you can do is dps.

Interesting. I never considered losing your ability to use other skills. Puts that 100% buff into a different category. Well played, devs. Well played.

So the real problem then, with Keris, is that he totally blows at stealing undetected resources when people are offline, and he’s too badass when someone is on with DF?

CURRENTLY:

WITH DEFENDER: Pop DF, waste 4 minutes kiting, take 4 silos without losing units.
WITHOUT DEFENDER: Equip Gungar’s, waste 4 minutes resetting mana, take 4 silos without losing units. Option to take cit.

SHOULD BE:

WITH DEFENDER: Pop DF, waste 4 minutes kiting, take 4 silos WITH losing troops?
WITHOUT DEFENDER: Equip Gungar’s, waste 4 minutes recharging mana, take 4 silos without losing units. No option to take cit?

Perhaps the problem’s in being able to attack bases without max units dispatched?
Just trying to theorize based on WLK’s opinion.
Cit should be even defensier, silos should be healthier too?

Goggles, bbrady.

Goggles are better than DF, and it works if the cit is defended, or if the cit is not defended.

as for the Should bes… the first should be, with defender, yes. closer to that, with variance being based on hero level/ player experience.

As for the 2nd should be, the one without a defender…. closer to being able to take 2 silos, and falling short of taking the cit on the first tap, and having to do a second tap, with losing troops.

Of course, the best tactic to use, if they nerfed shadowwalk again, would be to go in first tap, take a tower by the cit, drop boomers 2nd tap, and use the extra time to take silos.

Which is a tactic i consider to be more valid than how it is now.

DF DOES not bug me, in the least. I have no problem with it at all. i actually WISH all the kerises on AG used it, then i’d own them easy, hands down.

goggles makes the fight harder, but it’s still doable.

it’s the shadowwalk skill itself that is broken.

Another possible fix – when stunned, remove shadowwalk, and allow it to come back when the stun ends.

I am simply going off WLK’s posts. My personal opinion, honestly, is that he’s fine — and he will only be more balanced when they fix Fame.

It is not available. Gungar’s Trumpet is a good relic for him, too.

a Keris without dark formulae/ go rush a cit lv 8.3 and see how far you get. try it! i won’t even mention lv 9 cit or generators. that said, keris is worthless even as a thief (what he was made for)
now add dark formulae and keris is a good thief. so t5his shows keris is not op. dark formulae + keris is good. formulae with other heros is not so good.
if a cit is defended then keris with DF is useless anyway. i can see the main cry is doing something about keris when you are sleeping…but then, that goes for most heros, their troops, etc. at least keris only takes your cit. other heros destroy complete towns, you lose much more res.

Everyone NEEDS to try it. I do it daily. :{

I enjoy the hell out of going into PVP with Keris. In 3 attacks, you get more than enough Resources if you’re smart about it.

I kind of agree, but, on the same front, the other Heroes aren’t as effective as what they do. Keris is a guaranteed boost of resources with zero risk if you play it smart.

Keris is the strongest and most frustrating guy in the game. He’s good at his role of ganking res. If Fame were not abusable, would you think he’s OP?

Welcome back, etc.

I think I’ve said my peace about needing better feedback, since, like, October. I think you guys are moving toward a better destination now than before, but, I’m nervous. Datamined Castor was OP, no argument there. That said, please don’t make him a novelty like Scarlett. I’m begging you. The timing would be devastating.
