Thanks for the chest!

Any idea how much of a hiatus there will be between the end of this dungeon season and the new one?

Stay Safe & Keep up the Great work

Hugs

You're welcome for the chest. :)

We extended season 4 so the gap between seasons would be smaller.

Wilson has given me a time estimate to get all the changes done for season 5, and hopefully it's accurate, to keep the gap as small as possible.

Are there any plans to speed up rune combining? When grinding through dozens of runes it can take quite a bit of time to drag, drop, verify, repeat. Is the verify step really necessary? Could there be a way to combine a whole stack?

Just the quick rune merging for slotted runes at this point, since the main use case for leveling up runes is to put a higher level in a slot.

But there have been other requests for inventory management so I'll add your vote to the item on the list, and we'll see what happens.

Hi Erika,

Hope you and the CNE team are well and thanks for the code.

Just wondering will the new Tier 7 crusaders have a starting EP of 700 ?

Hi GeorgeSmith50,

We're doing well, thank you. We hope you are too.

You're welcome for the chest code.

Since Tier 4 Crusaders debuted with 300 EP each, it's gone up by 150 EP each tier (Tier 5 start with 450 and Tier 6 with 600.) But these will be Tier 7 Crusaders, so I might do a bigger jump than just 150 EP.

I love the sprint mode for faster completion, but it does make it hard to use saved formation slots. I find myself hitting "Q" repeatedly until I happen to get it in the split-second between transitions. I haven't completed Deadly Tales yet, but I expect that if the transitions are even shorter afterwards, it will be even harder. Is there something I'm missing? Is there a plan to make it easier to use saved formations when we're sprinting? Thanks!

Glad you're enjoying Sprint mode.

No plan to change how the buttons interact with the area transitions at this time, but I'll note down the request.

As long as you kill the boss in time, if you turn off auto-progress for a moment to switch formations, the game will sprint you to the next boss area when you reenable auto-progress.

How about a talent/objective to enable Sprint on Challenges?

The request for faster challenges has come up, and we do have some plans in mind, but it wouldn't be to just unlock Sprint wholesale on them, as they are meant to be challenges. Thanks for the nudge!

this question is a little dated however, is it possible to finish the "kill alivebeard" achievement when i have completed all objectives and only have the free play available to run?

When the Tier 6 objectives for Ghostbeard's Greed are released, they'll have Alivebeard in them as well.

Same! I can finally tackle those Tier 5 objectives. Just have to remember to leave an objective open to get that "Kill Alivebeard/Mother Bog 10k times" achievement...

Thank you for the runic chest, Erika!

You're welcome.

Have fun with the Tier 5s!

Any chance on upgrading the saved formation slots to work during level transition. It's kind of getting irritating due to sprint and with the talent to skip the waves before bosses.

Thank you for the request. I'll add your vote to the item on the suggestion list and we'll see what happens.

All the new stuff is there except the new talents.

Anyone else missing the new tier 8's?

Just need to reload again and they'll be properly unhidden.
