I’m up around turn 160 in my first game and I’m enjoying this a lot.
I have 10 in my party and I’ve run up against the ‘automatic pick 7’ issue quite a lot. It keeps putting people into combat that I don’t want and leaving some out that I do. I know the best solution is to build a village and leave 3 there but I just can’t find a spot to do that. I’ve explored the entire first island and there are some few spots with food and resources but there’s a Slaven or Lightbringer village next to every good spot. I destroyed one of the 2 Lightbringer villages but there’s another one right next to it that’s a level 9 battle and that’s too tough for me.
So, I’ve rafted over to another nearby island hoping for better luck. I’m not sure what this new island is. It has dragon bones and the intro said something about goblins? The landscape seem bleaker and more barren than the first island.
I’m having a lot of trouble with my party composition. I was lucky enough to have 4 or 5 children early in the game. One turned into a hunter. One was a goblin kid I got from an event and he turned into a crafter. All the rest turned into warriors. The problem is I don’t have a healer, shaman, witch or anything else that’s good with spiritual, social or mental challenges. I’m great with physical battles but get crushed in anything else.
So, how do you get witches, shamans, etc? On the starting island I visited the Slaven villages and they don’t offer anything except dogs and a cat pet. I bought some spitter spider pets from the Stingers village but they don’t have anything else, either. There are no elf, goblin or dwarf villages. Anyone have any ideas?
The other thing I’m struggling with is crafting which is not explained anywhere that I can see. How can you craft a legendary item (like a codex)? I have those unlocked to the highest tier. I have some level 3 components which I can put in the slots. I can click the legendary option to craft the codex however the bar under it is red and it won’t let me click the ‘confirm’ button to craft it. What am I missing? Are the components not high enough in tier so I have to find higher tier (4) materials to craft it?
