Right now for me it costs about 100k of 3 resources to summon a creature.

When I enter even level 1 realm I make roughly 10k per fight on each resource. It only goes up as you progress. I imagine there are about 5-10 fights per realm so you essentially get a "free" summon as you clear every realm. That only includes the fights and not the pick ups and chests and use of pandemonium tokens. Also, I've died so many times and the 10% was killer and now people don't have to deal with that!!!!

I spent about 3-4 days grinding level 1 realms just to get resources.

The cost of enchanting and forging is fine in my opinion.

The biggest drain for me seems to be power. I've been doing orb enchantments, power spells, and enchanting (legendaries) and I'm all bit capped out now. I need to "grind" a bit more. Not sure how anyone can complain since the description of this game sums up what is expected "rpg rogue like" = lots of grinding.

I'm very pleased with the grind this game provides I've never felt it too much even pre balance resource patch. I learned log ago that getting everything too quickly - quickly makes a game boring.
Thanks for your feedback! I think a lot people are just used to playing a different type of game where everything is just passively handed to you over time. I'm going to cut the power cost of summoning creatures down a bit in the next update since power is used for so many other things.

I only ever run out of essence but I think that's because I like to craft and re-roll, so it's my own problem

Besides I can just use one of those scrolls that puts me back to X specific realm to collect the nodes from the floors, or use a +% essence mod on a few artifacts.

All the other resources are ok and I usually have too much power to the point where I just go to the power goblet thing and sacrifice the max it will let me (repeatedly).

I think it depends on the person and their gameplay style, IMO nothing wrong with the resource system the way it is. The game provides plenty of workarounds to top off a specific resource if one happens to get low.

ALso - on the note of drop rates for nether orbs, I have yet to find one and my creatures are close to 70 so I think they're still fairly rare, even post-patch. I will let you know when I find one for shts and giggles.

BTW - thanks for mentioning I need 4 particles of the creature I want to nether egg; I assumed I only needed 3 so I'll grab another one when I fight one. Cheers!

You only need one particle to create the egg. The other three are used to summon the creature, since you need the creature to create gems for it.
