Forget what you know... again (Weapon/Rewards from Crystal D & Info)


Recommended Posts

Well the weapons are worth tracking down, a bloody staff with a base attack in the 4k's? that's double what you could get before, though the staff is pretty sick, I must admit... once I get over the frustration it takes to take out that final boss, I'll probably start farming for a good one :D

Monk Spear Reward:

Apprentice Staff Rewards:

Comparing that staff to one that I upgraded (sadly it only had a 1900 base and I wasted like 20-30 ups just to see what the knockback looked like....the upgrade ramp is like 91 points so.... worth it if you get a good starting base AND decent ups:

I also got a sword for the squire I had logged in, but I didn't get a chance to SS. It has projectiles on it, haven't bothered upgrading it so no idea what the deal is with that.
And the accessory rewards are cool as hell :D I got these crystal Wolverine style claws.


Some notes:
Super Legendary Apprentice seems to have damaged increase overall (including Pet? Pet went from 208k a shot to 250k) However, with the run speed being soooooo slow, it's almost not worth it to use. Who cares if you do more DPS if you can't get out of the way of attacks :/)

I had three characters signed in for the boss (decoys, boosts, etc) and only the Apprentice (player 1) got the costume, I'll be attempting to reverse roles and have the Squire logged in as the main player one of the next runs to see the results.

Sky/Survival/MM/HC.... after finishing the Crystal D on Hardcore I went ahead and talked this:
Good News: It's easy beat, finished it in little over an hour. (Yay top 2 score overall that I'm sure will disappear under a pile of hax in a few days, but small celebration for now! Seriously wish top scores meant anything.) Auras, Auras, Auras... seriously made this level a breeze, archers in the right spot and if you park yourself on the bridge just left of the starting crystal, most of the Ogres come directly at you and are easy to pick off) Still not worth it, going to see if Aqua has better drops now that the new patch is out.

Bad news the rewards suck. No supremes, certainly no ultimates. It's luck of the draw, but maybe 2-3 Trans a wave (including the last few) I made sure I was level 90 before starting the survival run, still no avail.

Cat-o-copter or whatever it's actually called is awesome, boosts hero damage (and nearby allies) only got a crappy one, but look forward to that.

However, achievements having issues left n right, the catch em all, didn't work for example. Did the drop all pets, pick em back up, etc, nada... no dice. And all were farmed.

MacPimpin out.

Well, I'm dissapointed about Sky City loot :(. Significantly harder than Aquanos, but drops just same gear. Can't tell what happens above 21-22 where I made it on first try, but don't expect any sudden improvement. Where are we supposed to get ultimates then?

And second successful HC run = pure gold (made sure to have an Adept out as well as the App):

The base was 3k, end result it's pretty much double what I had on my Supreme Staff. Instead of 10mil DPS it does 20, this is including the legendary hero bonus thing....

I'm not going to be able to play in PUGs for weeks, bloody Trendy making uber gears again... -facepalm-

(And also if you play multiple characters, the player who is player one will get the costume unlocked)

So Ultimate weapons can drop in Crystaline, I wonder if there will be some sort of survival variant there... though hey for once good gear drops in something OTHER then survival, I asked for this almost a year ago, lol.

And here's the squire weapon, this was better then my first, lowest quality i've seen drop of any of this is mythical so far... and godly with the accessories:

We've been hitting the max hero stat multiplier since wave 30 HC NM MM Mistymire at the very least, and perhaps even earlier - the only stats that can be improved by new stages after that have been weapon/pet damage, and... projectile speed.

All the harder stages do is hit the max hero stat multiplier earlier - you won't see better armor than the best you've seen so far. You'll see better weapons and pets, but only in terms of damage output.
