Endgame
So I've been playing this game a lot until February last year (that's what steam says anyway) - got several lv74 chars with not-too-shabby equipment at that time. Have all the new DLC now thanks to Humble Bundle. I don't exactly remember why I quit but I think it was because item upgrades were basically only found in advanced survival waves. Now.. I don't really want to invest hours before there is a chance for something good to drop, even more so because the gameplay of those early waves hasn't been challenging/fun either and wasn't even good for leveling.

Is there more to the endgame now? Can I just play for say 30-60 minutes and have a chance on very good drops? Or is there a way to fast-forward waves?

Thanks ;)

Thanks, but I play only ranked so no mods or custom maps

julyan is playing on ranked, you can't use Steamworkshop mods there.

You can get good rewards from playing the new Halloween Mission "Spooktacular 2" or "Tavern Defense". But the droped items from the enemies are not very good. If you have decent stats you can start a survival on a later wave.

Unforuntately, you are way far from the end game, and there are no shortcuts to it on ranked. If you already beat at least the main story on Insane HC, that means from deeper wells to CD, all that lies ahead of you is endless grinding to be able to do the same on NMHC.

The game has changed a lot since 74 was the top level, there are plenty of challenges for you to do, yetyour play time is only 200 hours, it will take you at least reaching 800 hours, maybe twice as that, to be in the end game again.

Thanks Ciryaher & Chavo

Mmh.. last I can remember was grinding the first Eternia Shard level on NMHC until the boss spawned. I'm fine with that kind of effort as long as there is some progress now and then

How many minutes/hours does a survival game take until you get decent drops (i.e. better than required to reach that wave)?

Depending on your equipment and where you start, I'd guess u'll need like 1 hour/ rather less if you have decent build and equip; though im not that high myself so not sure

you are able to skip to a wave that you have already completed on survival, also survival does not take a whole day like it used to, it takes much less time. only problem is that the RNG can be very nasty. you may come across a great tower armour peice over 250 upgrades, over 250 hp, rate and range then BOOM -300 in attack. ^_^

I don't fully understand... I find plenty of enjoyment in hosting survival games for players to join and get mana/exp. I often host for people. "H.TM - Another Survival Game!" is one I use. [: People often leave level 70 or higher. [: But, yeah, I guess it's rare to find that fun. xD There's also finding better gear, getting more cash, trading, collecting, beating levels on harder modes, etc.

That sounds good, I'm totally fine with RNG :) I'll give it a shot then

They probably buffed the rewards. When I played, the mana/xp was pretty bad (compared to Mistymire NMHC)
