Infinite Runes and Potions Exploit
I loved playing Gauntlet in this game. But the Vault ruined it for me.

Whenever I was low on Potions or Runes I would start a new character, Select the school of magic I wanted Runes from and put it in the Vault on first floor. Then I deleted this character.

This destroys any tension in Gauntlet mode. Potions from shops are worthless, I can always get more. Finding Runes is not essential anymore, I can always get more.

For Gauntlet to be fun again, it has to be changed that you cannot put Potions or Runes in the Vault. Only gear. Before I discovered this exploit, this game was so much FUN, trying to get as far as possible before running out of resources. Now, the resources are infinite and therefore the game no longer fun.

Would love to see this fixed.

Thanks for the feedback Tyrion44.

Based on your input, I have released a new hot fix which has this exploit fixed, you can no longer place health potions or materials in the gauntlet vault. If you already have those items in the vault they will still be there, but you can only take them out :)

Please don't hesitate to talk about more issues, feedback, or ideas ... I keep making this game for players like you.

Hotfix Details
  • You can no longer store health potions and materials in the Gauntlet vault, it's too easy to exploit with new throw away characters
  • When attempting to trash an item in the shortcut bar, the item is now properly returned to the original inventory slot instead of freezing in mid air (items on your shotcut UI are not trashable since you're using them, we assume this is always a mistake on the player)
  • Fixed camera zoom level clamping via gamepad
  • Tweak the easing curve and hide time of floaty text and images
  • Fix text on loading tips to match the game now
  • Fix loading tip about ads to be mobile only
  • First revive potion in intro dungeon no longer is picked up to the shortcut bar and instead goes to the backpack

Wow, thanks for the swift solution! Going to play this little gem of a game again this weekend.

Now I have new challanges ahead of me, great! Thanks again.

Just noticed Keys can be still exploited. Not a major resource, but still, my stockpile of 10 Keys can be transfered and it ruins hunting for them or buying them.

Not a major issue, but next time you are doing an update, consider adding this one on the list as well.
