    I honestly think this is a pretty bad practice because you aren't actually rating the game on its own merits. If a bunch of people actually did look at this post and go leave negative reviews (effectively brigading) it would give a false impression on the quality of the actual game itself. Yeah, the soft reset and price change can be frustrating, but they aren't relevant to future purchasers and abusing steam reviews to force developers hands without actually reviewing the quality of the game seems like a problematic way to go about things

    I didn't suggest brigading, I suggested leaving an honest review on Steam about what you currently think of DD:A whether that's positive or negative.

    They are already doing something, no?    What do you have in mind exactly?

    Also, we should warn potential buyer because of a wipe that don't concern them, and a price cut that actually is good for them? I don't get it.      

    It's a $2 worth skin and the I doubt that the transfer will be full (including gear) as the reason they made legacy in the first place was to get rid of the old gear


  2. Finally managed to complete Sky City NMHC and Moonbase NMHC - died on sky city's boss but with the help of a public lobby managed to finish it

    Moonbase was incredibly easy with a new build I tried - gas traps prevented enemies from doing anything at all. 

    Unfortunately got ripped off with a 176^ Supreme Fusion Rift and a 57^ Quietus, but got a decent ult steam saw from Sky City. 

    Thanks for the help on where to farm!

    Classic's is already a good dps wep, but for boss fights monk would be the best since the pet dmg on monk is much higher than on other heroes and you can hero boost. So I would advise you to put your 15k seahorse on monk and I can give you a monk wep if you want.

    Best weps for Jester: Ember sceptre, Elder staff, Bloodshot, Bonestaff and Classic's and prob some others

    Best weps for monk: Eternian spear, Monk Wrench, sparus, Mischief Maker, Quietus

    Best weps for barb: Steam saw, sword of embers, obsidian gladius, Eternian sword, Roger's revenge



    The classic's I have right now is lower quality (trans, 297^) compared to later game quality ones - trying to farm an ult or sup one but I can just barely beat boss rush NMHC with one hero which makes the going slow. 


    If you would give me something for monk that would be really appreciated, add my linked steam profile

    This isn't what you asked, but . . . on NM monks do most of their damage with pets, so you should get a decent quietus to start out (because it's quick and easy to farm a decent one on Moon Insane or NM) and then focus on getting a decent DPS pet.

    Thanks for the tip - do monks have better pet scaling than the other heroes?


  4. Currently at 3.2k hero damage on Jester using a transcendent classic's eagle crested standard (32k, 297^). Also using a 15k seahorse (transcendent 192^). This isn't cutting it anymore - for mostly DPS maps like NMHC Boss Rush and for just normal NMHC boss fights, the bosses aren't dying fast enough. What's the best midgame staff/gun I can find with good stats that outclasses my current ones? I also want to try to start monk/barb DPS and I have them leveled to 78 and have armor sets but don't have a good weapon for them. The ones I've heard of are Monk Wrench and Steam Saw from sky city (cant beat the boss on NM even with the cheese) and Moonbase drops (cant beat the last wave with multiple characters). What are the best weapons for Jester, Monk and Barb dps midgame?

    Most staves don't work very well on the tentacles (and elemental staves are especially bad).  The ember sceptre does work well, but I can't recommend that because it comes much later in progression compared to the Kraken.

    Monk with Seahorse is really good.  I would recommend clearing Aquanos on Insane (or lower difficulty) first if you can to unlock survival, and then getting a Seahorse on survival wave 20, either InsaneHC or NMHC if you can manage it.  It can help a lot against the Kraken.  One common strat is to use a squire with 100% block shield and Seahorse, blocking with your back to the wall while your pet kills the boss.

    By the way, the Kraken is not affected by Strength Drain auras, unlike most bosses :(

    Also, what quality of Seahorse can I expect to get on Aquanos ISHC? Are there other solid DPS pets on maps that arent Aquanos? I can probably beat a decent chunk of the maps that dont have awful bosses like this one as long as the Shards enemies or ogres arent too strong on them

    A dps pet like plane said is the best way to go. A lot of us back in the day would pretty much use seahorses. If youd like I can run alongside you (heal aura helps boss), or we could run insane/nm for a seahorse run to get a starter dps pet. 


    Summary

    -increase resistances to 90%

    -get different DPS weapon, ranged monk preferred

    -get DPS pet, ranged such as seahorse or chicken

    -party up with more (or me)


    Monk is really nice to have hero boost and tower boost, and with a pet can make good work on the boss. Good luck, one of my favorite maps of all time!

    That would be great thanks! Add my linked steam and I'll probably be on tomorrow

    Does a 100% block squire weapon work if a Jester is using it?


  7. Aquanos is probably the easiest Shards map layout to beat first time NMHC - just throw down physical beams, auras, and minions on every entrance. However every time I reach the boss I cant do anything without either getting 1-shot or my defenses going down due to how slow my DPS is on it. I'm currently using a Jester with nearly maxed resists on NM (~80%) with 3.5k DPS stat and a Classic's Eagle Crested Standard with about 30k damage. Is there a strategy to beat this dude? I cant even take out the tentacles once. His water ball attack takes out my minions in two shots and takes me out in two to three shots also. If the strategy is to use DPS Monk/Barb, what's the easiest good Monk/Barb weapon to get without having to build Akatiti? My dps is nowhere near good enough to do the boss


    Thanks in advance,

  8. I'm fairly new (~2 weeks ago) - have beaten everything except Sky City on insane, have farmed some Insane Survival mythical gear, running DPS Jester with mythical/transcendent armor from boss rush mix and a transcendent Classic's Eagle Crested Standard. I want to beat the final one on Insane before starting Nightmare. The level itself isnt hard -  I have a good build for it, and whenever anything actually takes damage either the mage minions heal the other minions or I can spin 3pots on the Wheel. The main problem is the boss - it seems every time I come close to beating him I die in some cheeky way. The last 2 times I tried and failed - the first time I collided with a Dark Elf Warrior in midair, sending me to my doom, and the second time I thought the wings of the Battlecruiser had collision detection. Is there any easier way to beat the boss than just having to jump to it and back successfully 9-10 times without falling off?
