Using energy to craft items sounds great I like crafting systems and at the minute I've gotten pretty angry with the game and I don't like playing games that make me frustrated. Mainly it was even in purple chests my rewards were tiny compared to all the costs so I'm glad you've tried to address this but mainly it was for capturing even if I had a monster at say 1-5 health all trap had terrible chances and I believe I spent about 4000 coins capturing one monster using the 500 coin trap.
Temples cost a ONE OFF payment of Gems in the next build but are 100% optional!
Dungeons cost Orbs, which cost coins, can be crafted on the ranch or found in levels.
Changing monsters will cost during exploration but is FREE on the Ranch in the next build.
Thanks for the on-going communication and feedback Ste, I hope you can see the Gem in Monster Legacy and the changes i'm discussing will bring it out for you!
