    yeah i've been having single attacks just go straight through a fresh shield

    i dunno if its due to lag or what but its getting pretty old
    had to burn through over a hundred CE tonight because of stupid deaths from it

    what attacks

    because if it's those stupid giant ghosts that you need the candle light to run away from, then they auto-pierce shields

    also is your shield straight up breaking, or are you just straight taking damage

    if it's the first, upgrade your shield and stop going so deep until you do, if it's the second, then it is lag or a communication problem

    I still don't quite understand what is "good" so i just periodically spend all my money and materials on whatever looks cool

    good is kinda subjective based on what role you want to fill and what enemies you will be fighting

    Shield lag is a pretty annoying

    the best way to compensate is to shield earlier, and more often

    seriously

    blocking and dodging is about 90% of this game

    I don't care how badass your sword or gun or bomb is

    if you can't shield or dodge, you are going to die

    straight up

    Yes, this. This morning for some reason on my wife's comp the game lagged a tiny bit and I was getting my ass handed to me on tier 1 despite having 4star gear. That and I haven't played in awhile so I'm pretty rusty and wasn't that good to begin with.

    Turns out that a 2-star Flourish is much, much better at killing demons than a 3-star Kamarin.

  • apricotmuffinsapricotmuffins Angry Bee Registered User regular
    I LOVE the flourish. I dont care much for its charged attack but normal use? I feel like Im getting somewhere. I am death on cute legs to fiends.

    In a moment of weakness, I bought some energy to have a go at some of the personal customization options before realizing I didn't really like any of them. I don't have any use for energy, really, so if you're having a bit of trouble upgrading your equipment, I can spare a tithe or two. Getting to 5* is pretty rough, and a lot of gameplay is only available to people with fully tricked-out gear.

    It kind of feels like that I need to put in a few hours of play farming Tier 1 to get enough crowns to purchase 100 energy. Is this about right? I am not currently working the auction house to sell stuff.

    Yea, if you can't consistently run t2 without dying this is a good option.

    The later levels of any tier have a better crown reward, and playing with more people gives you a straight crown boost to offset the sharing of drops. If you play levels packed with enemies - like arena or scarlet fortress - and you're able to clear challenge areas okay, you should have something approaching 100 CE per run. You need to do this less at higher tiers.

    Yeah, these I do ok, I think I just need to choose which Arcade I run more carefully.
