  1. A lot are putting water elemental shard with a storm servo on top. And why would you double up stun and petrify? The DU cost of doing this won’t net you anything worthwhile. I’d say lower floors the stunning rev by itself should be plenty to give CC without it needing to be too heavily invested. Maybe if Exglint shared his non stun/petrify builds 😉 Don’t get me wrong though, I’m in favour of the nerfs - just would have been nice to have more buffs in other places to balance it out!
  2. The game actively tracks gear score since one of the last big updates!
  3. Not worth it anyway when taking diminishing returns into account vs the cheaper and more useful petrify.
  4. Then what about drakenlord who shield only drops when ignited - which burning strikes does? Fire DOT like burning bolts doesn’t drop his shield...
  5. Yes - elemental chaos. Forgot it was called that! Spreadfire - cannon ball tower has a chance to fire x shots in a spread dealing % damage.
  6. Since we seem to be getting some more activity around these parts, how about brainstorming shard ideas! Afterall, they're now 2.5x the original cost (gems) so if you want people to spend their real life monies on it, we need more incentives! Bring back some spheres as shards too, they had pretty cool effects. Flameburst - Converts Flamethrower Tower into Flameburst Tower. Deals % damage to target and % damage to surrounding enemies in radius X. Elemental Trap - Explosive Trap deals % more damage and has a % chance of randomly applying an element Earth, Fire, Water, and Storm. St
  7. Good stuff. What you didn't put is the change to Buff Beam is now 40 du to place instead of 60 :)
  8. Agreed and why I said failed - its player numbers are the same as DD2's steam numbers and dropping. Unlike DD2, it doesn't have microtransactions to give it any sustainability and it's far too immature for them to expect people to pay for DLC.
  9. Pretty sure the intention is to just get us older players to log back in and spend money to recover the cost of the failed DD:A and help them move forward with DD3. Otherwise, I don't see the point in spending resources on a dying game unless you expect a profitable return.
  10. I’d sooner them finish off dda and move onto dd3. Dd2 is a time sink for them.
  11. You’re 5 years too late for this topic...
  12. Wonderful contribution to a year-old topic. I gave DDA multiple goes in its various stages, but I still don't like the game. I'll carry on with DD2 until we get DD3 or the servers are retired, whichever comes first.
  13. It’s all still relevant because it’s still unchanged in that time. And Giga raises a wonderful point, more shards to diversify the defences would be great and gives examples of where you can do different at lower onslaught for funs.
  14. Splody harpoon has a weird way of doing a bunch of damage to rollers so can be effective on the high roller lanes depending on the modifiers. The rest are garbage due to the cost of harpoon. The hateful nerf to harpoon/viper/harpy of changing their poisonous tower specific mods into those pointless fire dot killed any utility they had. Don’t expect any changes.
  15. 1) I agree since the premise was that it was meant to cover the story between dd1 and dd2. Yet it seems to be entirely dd1 on a new engine with updated map graphics and UI. 2) Given how they’ve done with DDA I’m glad they didn’t jump into DD3. I hope they’ve learned a lot from how not to do things before they plan dd3. 3) I think cash grab might be a bit strong. I don’t think they had the right plans in place and ended up making promises they couldn’t fulfil, from delayed development schedule to the switch scandal (also I’m pretty sure they said they were building with it in mind yet
  16. Although I’ve already responded in the same topic on the dd2 section, I don’t like dda, but I would hate to see them give up development of dda. They need to make it a success and learn as much as they can from it to move onto dd3
  17. To drop investment in their new game, not fulfil contracts, and lose the learning they’re gaining from using an updated engine and reinvest in an old game that has no real development future left beyond bug fixes doesn’t make any sense.
  18. Congrats on 999 you three! Just as everyone thought it couldn't be done because of the arbitrary Mark update you guys somehow found a way!
  19. Do your defences have max rate? Have you overcapped (100%) the rate on Flame Auras when vs Frosty Orcs?
  20. Why the need to bet? Just show it working, as on PC I tied the shareable +poison mod and it had no effect.
  21. It doesn't work. The only thing that might be working is if your character has Grave Infection and the shatterquake AoE Dmg gets a kill, the subsequent enemy will land on the poison tick from the gave infection and the shatterquake's earth dmg will petrify.
  22. Since you’re not using boost to slow, you can switch out deadly after placing with another shard and the towers that were originally in the aura will continue to be boosted as if the aura was still boosting them (including upgrading the boost aura).
  23. I only have an SGT for making chaos runs quicker. In onslaught I use frostbite to deal with emp kobolds and a reflect around the core for the rest. SGT is too expensive and becomes stuck with the sheer volume of fliers in some lane modifiers. There're no melee fliers... Controller only works on mobs who are crowd controlled, poison and drench don't count as crowd control.
  24. Yes it does, assuming the lane doesn’t have unstoppable modifier
