Not that it gets good, but that it gets into a rhythm. I totally understand where he’s coming from. It’s easy to play 500 hours of a game one hour at a time, whereas a 100 hour RPG can feel daunting. KCD has a surprising amount of that pleasure treadmill from Skyrim or similar games, so there’s less need to worry.
I finally beat the damned Act 4 last night! Man, I had an amazing deck, too. That was on Ascension 1 is all, which I usually play on for the extra elites (they are fun to farm when you get a good deck going).
Ironclad! My deck had Dark Embrace to let me draw cards when I exhausted them, as well as Corruption to make my skills free and exhaust them. With a handful of 0 cost Body Slams and other very handy skills and powers, I was able to really set things up reliably and hit like a truck when I was ready (it helped I had the Runic Pyramid to keep my hand between rounds).
I also got my first Act 4 win - Heavy Strike with tons of strength, and Headbutt to recur, along with the health-for- energy cards I forget, and a couple of Reapers to keep going in the corridors. That latter card is surprisingly good - you can heal a ton with strength and vulnerability.
Yeah, Reaper is great in any Strength deck. I had a relatively skinny deck once with a couple of the “gain strength if an enemy intends to attack” skills, a Whirlwind, a Reaper, and a couple whatevers for defense. It wrecked shop.
And you can recur it with Exhume!
I am having a blast with this game right now! I am currently doing a blind play through on my channel. It’s been a interesting challenge. I also recommend this game to anyone~
What in the world is a tilde at the end of a sentence supposed to signify?
I think it means he or she was attacked mid-sentence and only just managed to click the Reply button. Someone shoul~
That must be i~
Call for he~
I’m having problems with the Ironclad, more than the other two characters. I can’t get a good synergy, I can’t get enough defense to not bleed health in Act 2, and relics never match up my cards. :(
Heh, Ironclad is the only char I’ve actually managed to beat A4 with. Playstyle and luck of the drops plays a big role!
d maybe contact the authorities and see if he needs help.
EDIT: Wait. What? Did I just travel forward 6 hours in time? Is that what the ~ means - a time jump has occurred!? I was just typing the above along and all the sudden I’ve missed lunch and now it shows the rest of this post is hours later?!??!?!?!??!!
EDIT2: Oh my god where did this tattoo come from!?
I always hate when that happens.
I had a slight stroke. My apologies~
Yesterday the heart was slain for the first time. Defect, focused on defense and recursion. Wasn’t even my best kit, the previous one (relic that gives you a new sphere slot every 2 turns + a lot of cards that kill the slot and give you a focus) and I’d won if the last draw had given me a card I needed (double activation of the last sphere) which was like 50% chance.
Silent will be the next one to kill the heart.
Looking forward to it. Such a great game.
I was doing so well today.
I had the relic you get from reading the book about Nioh/Neow whoever, where you get a free random card after every round, plus i had corrupt, so in effect i had a never ending source of skills that would then cost 0.
In one fight, I got the barricade card plus 2 entrenches from that relic.
I had about 80 defence, rather nice.
Problem was it took a while to get to that level, during which I was bleeding, heavily…
About 2/3rds of the way into act 2, I died.
