  1. Kruntski, Your method will work cause most of the time higher armor or higher relic primary (which is what it sorts by) = higher IPWR... but that only applies about 4 out of 5 pieces (in my experience) which means you will have higher IPWR items in your stash or that you sell. You will still progress fairly quickly but about 10% to 20% slower than if you were equipping based on sell value within a single rarity. Which is perfectly fine. I did it this way as well C1-C5... but when I dug into the system more I changed to a single rarity (all blue) on my mule and went off sell value alo
  2. A lot of the mobs you could consider not fun. It sucks having to adjust for Air bombers, it sucks having to adjust for Geodes, it sucks having to adjust for rollers, it sucks having to adjust for EMP, X, Y or Z. Are assassins different? Sure. Though most folks who can deal with them easily put them in that same category of another Mob type we had to adjust to. As for are they fun? That is a subjective question and it is fruitless to get annoyed when those of us who think they are fine comment. For me, I find it fun now yes. I hear the swarm, see the purple glow... and book ass
  3. Overcoming a challenge is rewarding. That lends some fun to a hard game. It's why the Dark Souls series is so popular. At first Assassins kick your ass and you lose the game cause they spawned at the wrong moment. Later they spawn and you mow them down in 2 seconds. I hated them at first, but I think they are a great addition to the game as they add some non-symmetric play-style requirements. That being said if they are lasting 2 minutes like the OP said than he is doing something wrong. So advice on how to deal with them is more productive and helpful
  4. Vodka, usually mixed with air, Ice, or more vodka.
  5. Assuming your Hero DPS has enough Armor to deal with your current tier they are easily negated. Get a pet with a Stun or CC ability, and use the Mystic's Barricades (since they CC them) and you can easily peel them. Or Drop some geysers... or use Stun Cannons, or any other CC. When you see that purple mist start swirling you either get ready to use your pet's stun or if its on cooldown run to a CC zone. I think there is a thread that lists all the abilities/tower specs that peel them off you, At first I hated them, now they are barely even a thought. They are very easy to deal with
  6. It's not about the highest sell value unless you are limiting to a single rarity. There is a nice spreadsheet you can use to compare Ipwr values to sell value between the different rarity types. Though that is a pain in the ass. Here is the easiest way to do it: On your Loot dummy (or mule or whatever) ONLY equip blue gear. Blue because you get more blues than other rarities. Every single wave, if any blue dropped see if it is an upgrade (gold value wise only) over the current blue he is wearing in the slot (or slots). I would recommend not leveling up your gear your gear cause it be

    So I finally decided to move onto C7... a little apprehensive but I squeezed most of the good loot out of C6. First Map: Nimbus Reach!!! Arrrrggghhhh.... So I channeled Fozzie, "it's an easy map when you learn to build", "Very DU generous"... Okay I can do this! I figured if I made it to wave 2 and got some drops I would be good.... 4 Siege Engines, 2 Ogres, Tuskar, and 5 Waves later and Victory!!! I am sure a lot of you have C7 on Farm, but I am excited! First Try and I win!
  8. Hey folks... So my 3 week long journey is over and I think I am ready to move onto C7!!! Tonight I am going to farm C6 for a while... but tomorrow I am moving onto C7 and I have a very simple question. Which Mobs (other than the Flyers that disable towers) are in C7? In C6, I kept building anti-EMP builds until I realized EMP orcs were not in 6... then it got so much easier. So what is in C7? Is it all the special mobs? Or are any left out? I know I can sort it out tomorrow but save me a few hours and lend me the lowdown. Anyone?
  9. I keep getting the server too busy message before I even get to the menu screen (where I can change regions), is there a way I can change regions maybe in an INI file and see if a different region is smoother at this time of day?
  10. tonyb I'm happy with your fast progress coming back to DD2 but also a little concern. Trendy will have to throw new content very often to keep players busy. I hope they have a card up the sleeve regarding game longevity. Not really that fast, I think I am about 100 hours in the last 3 weeks. Granted I probably overstayed most Chaos tiers for a little to squeeze every last upgrade before moving on. But that is a good pace to go from Campaign to C6 when you already have every character you need at 50 already. I bet it takes a new player longer, and some of you experts can probably burn throu
  11. Sure there are valid complaints. Overall though the game is in a much better spot than it was before.
  12. So I quit this game just about a year ago (I think I have said that in every single one of my posts so far hehe...). I remember the brick walls of NM1-NM4 where you often could not solo beat a NM that was dropping gear LESS than your current gear, or had to farm for weeks for that cheese passive set... and once you got that you destroyed everything... or the abyss lord afk soloing survival throne room for days at a time... I had honestly lost faith in the development team's ability to roll out a decent version of this game. The pendulum just swung so rapidly and so wildly. So I quietl
  13. This was happening to me rarely until I read this post... now I am stuck on the loading screen when I try to go the the private tavern or the hub. Thanks!!! (and Steam for me)
