Hello all! Texas checking in. I’m about 100hrs played atm, and feel relatively new.
Restarted twice (started first time @ HC what a mistake!), and sitting at about Realm 50. I feel I’m doing it the hard way though, as my teams are usually stats/ability based, and slowly converting to debuffs/abilities based.
What I’ve found is that restricting to 3 realm types (Life, Chaos, Sorcery) has progressed my start up time considerably. None of the other realms offer significant benefits to unlock. Same with monster tiers - there’s not a big draw to unlocking them unless I need a creature from it. And even if I do, I can utilize the merchant to unlock some odd cores prior to unlocking monster tiers.
The only true complaint I have is the scaling. Scaling is fine, but scaling immediately at Realm 1 feels like the higher my creatures are, the tougher the game gets… at Realm 1. I wish there was a level cap on lower realms so I could farm early. Say… enemy level capped at (Realm lv x 10). Without Granite Gargoyle, I don’t think it would have been remotely possible to keep up with resource needs.
Spells are… meh. But I’m hyped about S2’s system. S2 will be a day 1 purchase for me as soon as it’s out on PS4.
Thanks Zack for making an awesome game and supporting it heavily!
