Re: Legend of the Invincibles

For me, the most dangerous enemies (chapters 7,8,9) are the ones with cold attacks. I wouldn't want to engage them with a ranged attack because I would get slowed and thus be much less able to retreat. That is who my Champion with Legacy of the Free (and move 14, and wrath, and berserk 5, etc) would...

Re: Legend of the Invincibles

Whiskeyjack, I'm actually surprised you like Titans on a Champion (I assume that is what you mean by Duellist line). They just don't get hit by physical attacks so I don't really care about their resistance. Mine literally has effective 90% defense (80% plus Struggle), and with Suck and Mockery, hea...

Re: Legend of the Invincibles

3. My favourite legacy by far is Legacy of the Free (extremely powerful with champion bowman, elvish assassins, and dwarf technocrats). My least favourite legacies are Legacy of Titans and Legacy of Phoenix. For Legacy of Titans, I think either bigger damage bonuses or better regeneration would be ...

Re: Legend of the Invincibles

Hello again. I haven't been on here in nearly 2 years. Not sure why I stopped, or why I came back, but I've been playing LotI again recently. Parts of Chapter 9 are now a lot harder, with Black Soul Demons and the super annoying flies spawning. I made it to chapter 10 and was quickly reminded of som...

Re: Legend of the Invincibles

I don't think Murderlust is that powerful, especially long term. I see the point about it being very useful in the early stages, but that is the only time I consider using that crafted weapon. It also requires the kill, so doesn't work if you get swarmed by several enemies and cannot kill them all (...

Re: Legend of the Invincibles

Blood rain definitely made me end scenarios sooner. But it was because it was annoying, not because it was preventing me from continuing. It would need to upgrade its damage significantly for it to prevent continuing. I'd also like to say remove the blood rain from last crusade. If you want to be si...

Already reported and fixed on github

Re: Legend of the Invincibles

Dugi, in item_list.cfg, various items have a line for "attacks_plus=", but this property doesn't show in the game when viewing the item and doesn't appear to do anything.

Re: Legend of the Invincibles

Maybe I read the blood rain discussion happened long enough ago that I forgot it. I know I read about blood rain on the forum before I saw it in the game. I was hitting the end of chapter 9 the last couple nights and I have to say that Romero is a wimp. Despite being level of 25, he hits weaker than...

Re: Legend of the Invincibles

What's monotonous is the bloody rain. I can't tell if it's burned into my retinas or the display. It had to be added to force players to hurry, because some people tended to get superpowered leaders to kill everything slowly with retaliation. I might take another approach to prevent this, but it wo...

I dislike that Destroyer. Too cartoonish for my taste.

Re: Legend of the Invincibles

Okay, now he's guaranteed to drop a high gem (emerald or higher, significantly improved probabilities, the chance to get a black pearl from him is 11%). Beelzebub is not dropping a nice gem for me, and I don't see anything about a special gem drop in utils.cfg from github. Yet that quote is from No...

Re: Legend of the Invincibles

Dugi, why are some weapon specials coded as [damage] (explosive and its variants) and some as [dummy] (hose, storm, others)? For no reason. I'd question the merit of ever using dummy - any made-up tag will have the same effect and may make it easier if you need to manipulate the abilities from code...

Re: Legend of the Invincibles

In theory, what unit would want to use Touch of Death? Typically I'm ecstatic to add a single attack, so the idea of subtracting 4 attacks seems inconceivable.
