Anyone got a +2 gold mine rune yet? I have a bunch of +1 GM legends, but a +2 would be really sweet. I'll trade 10 crappy legends for one good one

After you've bought all the skills on knight, is it better to upgrade them or upgade your stats?

Leader boards are getting "reset", for all intents and purposes.

As far as difficulty is concerned, the mobs get insane amounts of HPs and dmg as you get close to an hour, so I can't imagine getting to that hour mark without exploiting the stacking captain/LB issues. I hope you guys are keeping that in mind as you balance and tweak. I guess maybe lvl 99 heros can do ok, but those mobs wreck the troops BAD higher up... It's basically only a matter of time until something goes wrong enough. (spectres spawning and skirting the walls while cats and snipers buildup)

Honestly I think the best bet for leaderboards is a pretty gradual but slowish increase in mob strength. I can't think of a strat that exists that counters the combo of spectres plus all the long threats. Your troops and walls simply can't keep up, and your cash can't keep up since your mines are getting constantly thrashed.

Granted its harder to manage all that in coop than endless. I guess just keep in mind how much harder endless is than coop.

Hi, by far i've played endless, found some legend runes, some crap, and some good ones (+1 GM and 100 g / 100g and -20%) but still not satisfied me.

i've been wondered, if Forsaken would made a list of available legendary runes, so we would't wondering what is the best runes,

what is the best +damage runes you guys get by far ?, my self only got +40 ones, and i've heard there is a +75 ones

did you guys ever got a big one??
please tell me your best runes

I'm pretty sure that each rune is randomly generated from a list of traits.

Someone said they had a +70crit, which is insane if you ask me.

I have a pair, one I forgot, but the one I'm running with is +20dmg/-20% bldg cost
