Correction for record's sake - stated value in error. Will leave it up to individual to find out, however, to avoid abuse.

I personally am not the super competitive sort who wants to see my name high up on the leaderboards through any means possible type. Instead I see it as an intellectual game vs my opponents, where I try to choose my skills carefully vs one specific opponent, and/or design one to defend against a wide array of other possible opponents. This kinda reminds me of Guild Wars, or even Magic the Gathering or similar card games where skill combinations are constantly being re-invented and such. Although I must admit gear (and therefore time and money comes under consideration too) will greatly affect the outcome as well.
Besides, its the only way to unlock the trial maps. The good thing, about military rank though, in case you are not aware of this, is that once you achieve the rank, you get to keep it. So even if you keep losing arena matches thereafter, you still keep the rank and therefore access to trial maps, and in future updates, I suppose the appropriate daily diamond rewards as per your rank.
Maybe you can try to take it easy and give it a try? You never know, you might even get to enjoy the strategizing. (assuming you're geeky that way like me too lol!)
You sound so competitive not geeky. Many people enjoy a good strategy game without the need to connect online all the time. I myself dislike multiplayer games but I enjoy strategy, tower defense and adventure types.

Back to the topic, yes I do hope the developers could let us to convert coins to diamonds because I really like to try different players with different strategies as their stats aren't same. It would provide more simulation than it is right now.
The dice is an interesting concept but I wish it would not be so random to decide the specialist skill. Please let us decide that.
It'd also be more evolving if you can equip your merceries to improve their stats?
I like the idea of equipping gears improving your stats. It makes everything easier to calculate but I just think it might be even more fun if we can earn skill points every 5 levels and unique special attacks for each characters beside the 40 skills every class could have?

Lastly, I experience frozen screen twice when I was trying to "take a peek" at the IAP and I have to reinstall the game. It made me lose my progress twice. The first time I was at level 22. I hope you can do something about that. Thank you.

@pka4916
No offense taken, no worries! In the end, that was a blessing in disguise for me, since I stopped leveling to experiment a little with various skills and stats. So now I think I understand some of the game mechanics a little better than before, and it has certainly helped to improve my game. That's the funny thing about life, isn't it? Unintended consequences and such Anyway, didn't know that bug about getting kicked out of game.
What about 6-1? It is a very big map and you have to walk a looong way to the red boss, but he is definitely accessible and not cut off like the other map. (i forgot which, but its the one that you think you can go left from the entrance, when you really cant. Devs have said that is a bug which will be fixed)

@airdan, Coppernica and Vextion
Thanks folks for your support! Always glad to know there are others who believe in fair play too!

@Coppernica
3. Yes that happened to me before too - unintentionally selling certain items Happens especially when my trash loot accumulates. I would like to suggest a "Sell all" button for trash loot too :P

5. I wondered about that too. I also noticed invincible sometimes go off at different intervals. It is almost as if certain situations (e.g. specific skills) will remove it prematurely. But I can't say for sure. Maybe others can provide more input on this.

6. I love the automated battle system too! Great for multi-tasking. Also the fact you can hit home button anytime, anywhere and everything is the same again when you continue later.

8. Seems like Rank reward is daily. Yay for daily free diamonds!

@bune
I've noticed curse seems to have gotten a 1% buff to damage, and rebirth got nerfed a little I think. Not sure about others. Would love a permanent unlocking of class as well!

@exam
Aww sorry to hear you still prefer battling the AI to online play with real players. I myself have learned much about the game mechanics like damage calculation and gear customization from other players. For instance, did you know with the right skills and focus on gear, you can do at least 6k damage or more to a player? Probably more with higher lvl stuff as well. I probably would not have known that from playing with the AI alone, since their stats are all immensely buffed at the same time, and their skill choices are already fixed. Anyway, to each his/her own I suppose! Anyway, choice of equipping mercenaries sounds cool too.

@ryan828054
Yes speciality and talent effects do stack.

Yeah skills can do crazy dmg. +crit not only increases crit chance but crit multiplier. People with 900 crit can possibly crit for 7k dmg, I have been one shotted in PVP a lot of times like that lol. I also wish the expensive classes were unlock. I dare not switch class after assassin.

I feel that my ranger is not keeping up and have struggled with arena. Unfortunately, you can't progress in the game with out arena so it would seem balance would have to be a number one priority. The top 50 seem to comprise of 2 or 3 classes could this mean we have some balance issues? Any one care to share there feelings on the balance of each class?


Does anyone know if the set items can drop? I see a lot inspiration taken from the diablo series it would seem that you could farm the bosses at the end of the age to get some of the best gear which would include the set items but I'm not having any luck with that.

Hi, I think it depends. For example, at the beginning 2weeks maybe, paladin was widely seen as the popular class. High hp and def sounds easy to play with and you see many among top 50 playing it. Then in the first update, reflect plus other skills got changed a little bit. I expect in future updates, skill balancing might become common maybe. As time goes by, we also get more players willing to try various classes, and we see more berserkers/assassins and such. I'm sure things will evolve constantly with every update. e.g. I understand we are getting ninja class in next update.

My personal opinion is that berserkers are the latest "cool" class to play right now. Assassins a close second. In fact, maybe you can try looking at these two classes in planning your ranger? Just take a peek at the skill and stats of players @ top 50. I find berserker stacking BRK/CRT, using rebirth and fury works well offensively. You don't need to worry too much about def/hp/survival. Mainly worry about nuking opponent quickly and pray for rebirth if you don't. Fury buffs your dmg the lower your hp is to ensure you that one hit KO. In an earlier post, I mentioned high dmg. That is possible if you stack these two stats. Similarly, assassin stacking AVD/CRT and some SPD, using extra hit and shield works well defensively. Throw in some other skills and you can dish out nice dmg too. Anyway, just my personal views. Don't have to agree with me.

I have gotten one or two orange items before, I think they were all necklaces though. But maybe that's just my personal bad luck.

level 5-3 is fixed now, and i went the other way..

I'm stuck on level 6-2. That Boss Bird is kicking my ass and in 2 strikes I am gone, and so is the rest of my party.
He's got some thunder thing going on , that does 400-700 damage..
Not even funny anymore... Sure hope it's a glitch.

Did noticed some new Monsters in the early levels, that I've never seen before.

The Diamond thing is cool.. it's easier now to earn diamonds.. Thanks Devs
