Kingdom screen is very slick. It will take some getting used to with the character selection with everything kind of spread around the way it is. Love the glow of things though.

Honestly I think 3 potions was fine for the Witch Hut, but I won't complain about an extra slot. I think some players might have had an easier time with it if it were more clear that you can "toggle off" the starting health and mana potion.

Trisword nerf is BRUTAL, but I do think it's a solid item now. For anyone who's interested: new Trisword offers +2 damage, and grants +5 damage on potion use, then loses 1 damage per attack until it's back down to 2. No gold cost!

Looking forward to seeing what "H" and Gardening Shears are.

OMG THEY NERFED TRISWORD !@#!@#!@# I HOPE YOU ARE ALL HAPPY. THIS IS !$#@@#$ TERRIBLE. I QUIT GUYS!

Err.. hmm that is an interesting change. Brutal power difference but potentially more interesting. Not sure that I like that get use out of your potions you will often have to to first and THEN get your damage boost but we will see how it plays out.

Looks great!

Unfortunately, my first round was bugged.

Finally won Thief Gold and got "Chrome has experienced an error" and the Unity plugin crashed.

Not sure what information I can give you, but I'd love to help!

I need to take a break now - pretty pissed that it didn't save.

I found "H" but I think the encounter might be a bit glitched. Three figures appeared, the first one started talking but gave 3 different messages back to back, then clicking the other two gave the same three messages. I assume that each one is supposed to give a different message.

Oh, and then Unity crashed. lol

Oh wow, that's a massive nerf. Thankfully they pulled the gold cost off of it.

EDIT - disregard my earlier statements. The new trisword does not stack when you drink multiple potions. As a result, it can never go above +7. I'm going to give it a few more whirls, but this is a pretty catastrophic nerf. I think the fine sword is probably now by far the better of the two items. A mere +3 base attack is not worth the requirement of having to chug a potion regularly to keep it functional.


Witch tier 3 offers four potions

Ah, that'll be nice. I was chafing a bit at the inflexibility. Something will eventually need to be done about the strength/reflex/quicksilver power-leveling combo, but the trisword change may have dealt with that.


New Item: Gardening Shears

Looking forward to it. Hmmm... wonder where I'll find these things.


Vicious Token unlock moved to Gaan-Telet

A sensible move.




EDIT:

Okay, I do not like the new kingdom layout. The having the races, classes, and preparations all jumbled around is extremely inconvenient.

The tri-sword... made both me and Darvin do the same thing we always do, and make a missasumption. -.-

I spent a while looking for the gardening sheers, for a bit of a mirror-opposite expirience of why I don't like to scumm for items. I fired up the game with the specific intention not to play a run, but to scumm for the shears, and half an hour later I still have no clue what they are. I still don't feel like doing a run, and have the same feeling when I want to do a run and the game makes me scum.

Anyone found them? I think if you did the old Slime Pits quest it messes things up, has happened before, so maybe doing a slime pits run would fix it?

New kingdom interface - everything I'd fear it be. Nice art, ball of yarn made me chuckle, but overall it's not going to work out for me. Maybe if you're not used to the neat and tidy way it used to be it can work, but looking for your class after you've selected a race is visibly less user friendly because all the pictures change. Some sort shading on the background would help - it's too orange, and if you're trying to find the goblin you're looking for... Eh, not fun.

Interested to see where it goes...

Is the trisword capped? I think it has to be capped.

It's hard to say how useful the new Trisword really is, but as someone who was never a big fan of any of its iterations, I have to say I really like the concept of the new one, specially how it handles the conversion value.

As for the new kingdom screen, I'll have to make a new profile to test the process of getting used to it, because working with a fully developed kingdom without ever having used this new system is pretty confusing (took me over a minute to even find the guild).
