The later/end areas... (spoilers)

Postby TigerKnee on Wed Aug 03, 2011 3:26 pm

So discussion on the end-areas of the game. At least I think they're the end areas...

They're starting to become really tough... it's kind of annoying to be walled here like this. The progression has stopped and it's frustrating.

The mines were easy for me, but I have a feeling that if you don't get lucky with your bombs it may very well be hard.

The druid boss with the joke name referencing Asterix is... surprisingly easy once I changed from Sorcerer to Berserker.

I'm walled on Indomitable, though I do know the strategy for it. I just need the luck to pull it off, I guess, since it's a dungeon that is very easy to be screwed by certain monster types depending on your class.

The Avatar mission is pretty nuts. You have to kill 4 bosses, I believe 3 of which has abilities to weaken you somehow, then you got to kill a boss with high resists who goes berserk at 50%. That's pretty nuts.

There's a lot more content coming, this is only really one of the four areas right now. Plus we're starting out at crazy and lowering the difficulty as we discover how people play the game with all the new bells and whistles.

Basically, thanks for putting up with the hardness right now and it will get less evil. Maybe.

I think that the difficulty of creeplight ruins (and the other two dungeons that are at the same unlock point, the ones with the troll on the bridge and rock garden) is too high. If you'd lower things by just a smidge here and there, it'd make it less pointlessly difficult and more challenging, but rewarding.

If you lower you the difficulty of these dungeons, you also have to lower the difficulty of the following, because right now they are just a punch in the face.

I wish I could get as far as you guys but for me some of these bosses seem impossible - I just don't know how you're ment to take out some of them with their insanely high hp (although if you can do it, I can to). 4 bosses on one level? Wow. "We're starting at crazy" You aren't wrong there!

I'd like to reiterate once again how needlessly hard creeplight, rock garden, and the bridge troll map are. I've been trying them over and over and I still can't beat them.

I'm forced to farming the generic dungeon to get gold to upgrade to the third tier of heroes and hope they can somehow do it.

Wait, what? How'd you unlock that area? 4 bosses?
