I’ve been eyeing this game for a while, and decided to buy the android version since I had $5 in google play credit, thinking I’d buy the PC version as well if I end up really liking it. I’ve been playing it here and there for a couple hours, but I’m a bit overwhelmed by the complexity of this game. The only “monster catching” game I have played is Pokemon, which is way simpler. I played Dragon Warrior Monsters on an emulator for a little bit before this game, and that seemed simple too.
So far I have gone up to realm 7 and gotten the blacksmith. The tutorial and guides make sense on paper, but in practice I have no idea how to build my creatures. This whole time I’ve just been using the default attack move for all my creatures, however some creatures do 100+ damage while others do very little, like 1-10, even though they’re the same level. I’m assuming that’s because I don’t have the “right” artifact equipped? How do you go about deciding what artifact to equip on which monster? what about spell gems? Some artifacts have one sided effects, like take less damage from Death etc. when would something like this be useful? Is there a guide that explains which qualities are worth having and which ones are worthless? Also is there a guide that explains basic team formation and strategy?
Another thing I’ve noticed is that so far the realms have been really similar, despite the scenery and monsters; Collect things for gods, give imps or travelers items, and break things for loot. Is this what the entire game is going to be like or does it get more interesting in higher realms? Does this get really repetitive and tedious if you play a lot? I don’t mind grinding to train my monsters, but it feels like I encounter very few enemy monsters in a realm, and the rest is collecting things and getting loot.
