    Default If there were no ankhs in this game...

    Do you think we would have all these brainlessly 1shot bosses killing us?

    We cant really defend against them except for hoping for a stun via pet.

    In which game do you get 1shot by a boss no matter what gear you use or what class you are? not even in this game, untill the trade-able ankhs showed up

    The ankhs gave STS a nice reason to make bosses not hard, just plat/gold draining, cause it does not take skill to kill the 1shot bosses it mainly takes ankhs.

    I dont see the fun in this situation, elite used to be about taking time to master, but i feel like a sheep following STS's platinum flute buying ankhs to simply survive current boss fights

    STS stop allowing bosses to 1 shot us! its not fun and its not how game mechanics should work.

    Agreed, it is okay when it comes to bloodhammer in kraken elite, you know those Bosses Who has red zones that can easily be dodged... warriors even survive these sometimes.
    But when ANY damage kills you, thats just not okay :/

    Exactly there's no strategy to not being 1hit. It's LUCK if you don't die and that's bs

    As a runner of elites from the beginning, and having run tombs a handful of times, I can agree with the above statement and STS may have over done it this time.

    These tombs take zero strategy and it's more about who has the bigger wallet to finish them. Not to mention it's taking 30min to over an hour with some of the most skilled players. If this is the new direction of STS for a MOBILE game, I'm done as its not only not profitable, it's not even fun.

    I think the tombs, unless fixed so we can run them better, will also become a dead zone.

    They made a fatal error in that recipe as an extremely rare drop, so now we have no reason to play once we get the APs.

    My take is to help my guild complete 1-3 and go back to merching, spending millions of gold in there running tombs is a waste of my time.

    I think I should add that i am and im sure we all are greatful that we can get stash/invtory/char slots for story tokens

    Elixirs/respecs/revives for gold, it does show they did alot to help the free players, the problem is the abuse of ankhs usage, as if they cost as much as potions do, while turning what was once fun fights into an "omg i hope i dont get 1 shot more than 20 times-30 times this run" fights.

    I had to add this part to show this is a constructive opinion and not a rant thread.

    All the mobs and bosses need a revamp. As a quote on quote, new user, i am really frustrated on how the game mechanics on this game is. Literally, you die from mobs, die from boss, die from everything. When there are 5 or more mobs surrounding me, there is no chance of surving what so ever, for any class and with any equips, even when you do spam potions. To be honest, potiona are not even cheap in this game. Wirhout spending ANY gold, starting from 0, i was only able to obtain around 21k gold from reaching to lvl 23 or so. And yes, i did all the quests and dalies. If you guys are gonna make us spam potions, at least make us be able to spam pots without losing so much money. Heal? Theres a long cool down on that and not many people want to waste 1/4 of their skill slot for. A. Heal.

    You gotta put yourselves in users' shoe nd understand how the game is if such is like such, for example in this case is making us spam ahnks. This is just a frustration for users instead of making the game more..fun..

    The game changed from challenging game full of fun into daylight robbery.

    I want the times of Skull Cove and Palm Rock crabby nightmare back. That was what you call fun, although lots of pain.

    Howgh.

    I always entertained the idea of "changing spawn points." Planar Tombs are more like Planar Plains anyways and trekking back is tedious. So last resort is ankh usage.

    Basically, the party would venture into a designated alcove of the map and clear the area. Then all party member (whether 4 or 1) would have to simultaneously activate runes (doesn't have to be exactly choreographed). The runes would allow players to spawn at that location rather than the start of the map.

    Maybe 2 sets of runes? 1 halfway and 1 before the boss? (not extremely close, I don't want to discourage ankhs as a form of STG's revenue)

    At least, we won't be burning a ton of gold with ankhs this way
