Saluki Posted September 8, 2010 Report Share Posted September 8, 2010 My first post, sorry its a negative one. Been playing for a while, think the game is great, Ive run into many of the same problems as others and I just try to ignore or work around things that are not perfect. But man a couple things are really getting me now. I spent almost 90% of my time before mid terms studying and got everything to 10 well in time. Now that Im later in the year its adventure time. The spread of skills you need to complete any of the adventures is so wide ranging and impossible to guess that it makes it hard to complete them even with a really well developed character like mine. Ok no character is perfect and can do everything, but I get the feeling it means Im doomed on quite a few adventures. Like the one where I need either Cooking, Research or Recipes. I have a 0 in Cooking. Recipes is the only subskill of Cooking I know and its a 0 and while I know 3 Research subskills, they are all at 0. I will probably never be able to train recipes high enough since my Finesse is a 1, but my Insight is 4 so conceivably I could spend the next few weeks training all three Research subskills up, the problem being, this may be the only adventure that needs me to develop these skills, and once I pass this part of the story there is probably a very good chance the next challenge in the same adventure with have absolutely nothing to do with my research skill! Another frustrating aspect is that I think I finished one of the Adventures but Im not sure. I got to the point of needing Logic, Diplomacy or Famous Speeches to get past a part late in an adventure. My Logic is a 10. My Intelligence is a 4. I would start in the Artiglio Tower for a +3 Logic bonus. I added 16 points of stress (the highest I can add, I assume its because my Vitality is 12, Silke takes away 3 stress and at some point I did something which gave me a 1 point stress max increase 12+3+1=16?) and I ran the adventure about 20 times with no success. Shouldn't my roll work out to 10 +3 +16 + 1d8 or 30-37? The only way this makes sense to me is if the requirement is 38 or above which seems impossibly high. Anyway after failing all those times I finally decided to sacrifice a clique member for the FIRST time in the game. So Tulia steps up, and does the job and after the message telling me so I am taken back to the end of day summary where Im told I was successful in my adventure and I see I have gained a point of Insight. Im assuming that Tulia got the job done and everything worked out ok and that all I had coming was the point increase, but even if that is true, after all that time I didnt get to read how the Adventure ended! What an anticlimax to days and weeks of adventuring! So now I move on to another adventure and another frustration sets in. Its the "absolutely no story progression is made in this adventure" adventure. Im in like stage 3 of this adventure and it starts out with, lets go find "xxxxxxx" So thats my only option and when I click validate and wait my friend comes on and says, "ok lets go" and I validate agian and then thats it! adventure done for the day. Next time around we go find the "xxxxxx" in one screen and then thats it. Next time around it says lets go find "yyyyyyy" so I agree and then my buddy does the same thing, says ok lets go and the adventure is over! ARRRRGGGGHHHHHH! In the mentor adventure (which I now cant finish due to a bug, although I finished it in an earlier game) there is a part where you have to use like 4 or 5 skills to progress in one time slot and on this one Ive had to waste 2 time slots to accomplish nothing! Whats the point of that? Ok, venting done, love the game and the support, Ive seen very few games where the creators interact this much, so thanks for that. One final question, when you fix the mentor quest bug, am I going to have to start a new game or will it work for my current character? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
