So, having had a couple of successful runs on easy, and having found the most recent one too easy, I’ve gone ahead and bumped it up to medium. The difference is substantial but I was managing quite well, even managed to knock out the Illusionist as an optional boss early on and walk away with a nice trove of gear. That got me through the first checkpoint easily but then I got greedy and bit off more than I could chew. That multi-tentacled critter in the sulfur flats is not to be trifled with, apparently. But, hey, I unlocked two more character classes for my trouble and learned a few things, so I’m not complaining.
Overall I’m really enjoying the game, though I wish the cards were a little more interesting on average. The class starter decks are really dull and it takes far too long to spice them up through level ups. I know it’s all about the gear cards but come on, you’re going to see those class cards a lot no matter how great your gear is.
But, it’s a fairly small quibble for a very well-built game. Looking forward to trying out the new classes.
