  1. It would be a nice option to allow the builder to lock their tower, or for the host to enable a tick box that locks towers by builder (if they choose to enable the setting). Perhaps even a "All host towers locked"/"All towers locked by builder"/"Free-for-all" option set (or along those lines).
  2. Ranked are the official servers; Open means you can play with mods (free development kit is available via DLC). You are more likely to run into hacked items and mana in Open, but they also exist in Ranked. If you want it to "count", play in Ranked. If you're just looking to mess around and have fun, Open is fine. Characters created in one are unavailable to the other (probably obvious but worth mentioning).

    Typical strategy for characters is that you want at least one tower-spec'ed Apprentice, one tower-spec'ed Monk, and one DPS character (typically Apprentice, Monk, or Huntress). Squires are less useful in general, although some players seem to prefer using the underdog for more meaningful victories (I personally only use them for their spiked blockades).

    ceemeeir has created a wonderful loot progression guide that you will likely find useful. (Thanks, ceemeeir - I recommend that guide like twice a week lately, lol).
  3. No it won't, the game barely runs at 40-60 fps on a pc 15-20x faster than a vita. (vita gpu said to be half as fast as a ps3 ish, mid-high end graphics cards are 6-10 x more powerful than a ps3 gpu.)

    That's not a fair scale, though. The Vita isn't pushing ultra-high screen resolution like PC monitors use.
  4. It probably allows you to cap off to the end of the level 74 range, just like the pre-cap allowed you to attain level 70, and then fill your meter up to just before level 71. I don't know for certain as I'm not even close to that limit yet :p
  5. Also noteworthy - if you can handle Insane Alch Labs on Survival mode, you should also be fine solving Hall of Court on Survival Mode. Get to wave 15, and you will be awarded a Genie - for the early waves, this is far superior to other pets as it helps you get extra mana to upgrade your towers more quickly. Once you get them all to triple star status, you can then swap to your Engineer (or Imp, if you prefer).
  6. Speaking of that can you guys believe someone actually refused to buy a good sword just because it had poison instead of fire... And im like dood, it makes no differences. :/
    lol, Poison is better than Fire anyhow. There's usually far more fire-immune mobs than poison-immune, in my experience.
  7. The only problem is getting the necessary gear to enable you to survive that initial onslaught and said subsequent waves :)

    You can get about 1/10th of that rate doing Insane Mixed Mode survival. Do Alch Labs until you can handle Hall of Courts to wave 10+.
  8. A pretty easy solution would be to increase the tavernkeeper's miserly buy prices (and the map's auto-sell of loot) by about 300%-500%. This means more mana for upgrades and could also inflate buy prices in AFK shops (as players have more mana available, they are willing to spend more for choice gear). On the other hand, players would sell more and loot less (to a lesser degree, at least) resulting in a slight decrease in items put into AFK shops. Less supply inflates prices and bolsters economy further.

    Then again, I'm an admitted casual player, so the above certainly serves to benefit my play more than it would for the hardcore crowd.
  9. No idea why the trolls are out so early...

    Thanks @ Wonkavision for posting this definite sticky candidate - people should at least understand this methodology and expect that others are playing by similar standards. It's useful information at the most intrinsic level - pretty much the "Dungeon Defenders Golden Rule(s)".
  10. I've played one pick-up game in Ranked when I first started and was "yelled at" for picking up a single green item when the floor was already starting to fade the extra items. Then I read about people getting kicked for being sub-par, etc. and realized there's basically no point in playing pick-up without using the forums to match up particular builds, strategies, etc. before-hand.

    Since then I only play private games, and it's been pretty rare, actually. Been loosely following ceemeeir's "Loot guide for Dummies" to some moderate success.

    I don't even check the open Ranked games anymore, and can't be bothered with shops, either. Won't touch Open with a ten-foot pole.
