EDIT: I’ve been informed that the issue I was having was only once you’re far enough into the game. I rescind my complaint, but I’ll leave this here in case anybody else makes the same assumption.
I noticed today that any previously undiscovered creatures can no longer be extracted (“can’t extract until you have bred one like it”). I assume that this is a recent change? Either that, or I suddenly hit a new barrier, in which case, please ignore the rest of this message.
Here’s the problem as I see it: I need new species to breed new combinations, and I can’t get new species unless I find them on the field. Breeding is also somewhat expensive… 4k of brimstone and crystal, plus a fair amount of power balance. Not too bad for one creature, but brutal if I’m going to have to try dozens of combinations. It makes sense to lock down certain creatures (cores bought from gods), but all new creatures a bit much.
It is my personal opinion that this change ought to be rolled back. Does anybody agree with me, or am I alone on this?
