  • Nexus difficulty

    So I have found recently, say the last 6 months, the the difficulty of the nexus is going up. I just did the anvil run on ludicrous with 4 maxed out demons 2 of which are also creatures and lost at node 2. I get that it should be difficult but considering the pay out for these is not that great I am discouraged, as a moderate pay player I enjoyed this game because I felt I could always make progress towards high quality squads with only limited money. The heart of this is the nexus and now it seems that in order to make any real progress I need to have a specific squad fully maxed out or I might as well just run it on hard. It would be worth the squad and powerful runes if i was going to get guaranteed mythic wisps but it's an 50/50 to get a legendary. Either lower the difficulty or raise the rewards, the whales don't care but I have lost guild members over the grind getting to hard and tedious. I for one am finding it harder and harder to care and definitely not enough to pay money for. Sorry.

    I think it is because some Dwarves like Piontin Aeducan, Brogan, Jerrik and Snug have had a recent revamp. Other Dwarves have had stats boost. On the other hand, the Demons have largely remained untouched in fact, The Highest One had its stats corrected. That's why Anvil of the Void may appear more difficult now if your squad comprises of Demons.

    If you have Advisors or other toons which have recently been updated, you may fare much better in the Anvil of the Void. I play no dupe with my alternate account and the toons are pretty skeletal. However, I can breeze through Anvil in ludicrous mode with Scout Harding, Tempest Sera, Advisor Cullen and Josephine. All those toons have recently been updated so they perform well in most nexus.

      That is actually my beef with the current nexis (?) And while I focus on the anvil even the dailies have gotten tougher but the pay out hasn't. So the only way to pass these is to have the most beefed up maxed out squads then why do the nexus, boredom?

      My criticism is that a tool for making my army better is useless if I have to have a perfect maxed out army to begin with.

        The idea behind Ludicrous mode is that it is meant to be a challenge. Ludicrous isn't meant to be the place where you go to build a squad - it's meant to be where you can challenge yourself to find ways to beat it.

        Insane has drop rates that are not much lower than Ludicrous, for the same energy, but significantly easier to run. If you're having a rough time on Ludicrous, try Insane instead, if you're still building your collection and just looking for the drops.

        As a side note, we haven't actually changed the events themselves. Any changes you see in difficulty are a direct result of the heroes getting their stat updates, as that affects both your own squad and most of the quest squads. If we haven't supplied a specific health/power stat to a quest enemy squad, then the stat changes will affect them as well. Most Ludicrous modes have been given a specific health/power stat.

        Give Insane a go.

          your main problem is your team, really few demons are dangerous, and even few demon teams are powerful or worth building, and the "whales" as you put them are only an obstacle on pvp events wich are bad but we can't do anything about it, perseverance only, try to get a few advisors or run metas to node 18 and try to get daces or shales on node 6 i think, i play without guild since 2014 that i started, i'm sitting at 204 lvl with a few variations of inquisition meta teams and on my way to fully fortify and gear shales and daces

            I always thought the gauntlet is there for challenge and nexus especially daily is there for building and improving your squad. I have also been playing since launch I have a robust toons including 7 squads worth of fully maxed tons. Please don't patronize me with the same "you need these 5 toons" it seems if I don't have these 10 or so chosen toons I should just quit.

                This is a place for feedback on the game as i understand it, if I questioned my strategy I would post in other forums. I have been playing this game for a long time and am finding my enjoyment diminished, so I am giving them feedback that might help me, and some others I have talked to and seen leave.

                  While that may be true for most difficulties of the quest events, the Ludicrous mode in particular is intended to be an actual challenge for that event. It's why we created it to use the same energy as Insane, with only slightly better drop rates, but a kicked up difficulty. Players wanted a way to challenge themselves because they were finding the Insane modes not challenging enough, and so Ludicrous was created to satisfy that need.

                  If you're having a hard time with Ludicrous, try Insane instead, in order to get the squad-improving items and units you want.

                    I am assuming that Iksnel brought up that he was using a demon squad because demons actually get a buff for the event. Unfortunately the buff is only 100% which in the long run does not make a lot of difference.

                    Your claim that demons are not powerful and it is not worth building any demon teams is actually quite false. Demons ruled the meta for a long time and even though they are not meta anymore doesn't mean they are not useful to build. Too often people focus only on teams that are viable in the current PG meta. A strong Demon team should help you clear most nexus events so for many people it would be a huge benefit to build up such a team if they are not able to acquire and gear current meta teams.

                    Not everyone actively participate in PG or for the top brackets of PVP events. All players should be building a diverse roster of characters to be able to tackle different aspects of the game.

                      i didn't say that, i said that few demon teams are really worth building, i have 3 different demon teams, however the most powerful aren't really easy to get, save for envy demon

                        The current problem with the anvil nexus is why I am on here now (think of it as the straw that broke the camels back), because I have a similar problem with the Grey warden nexus. I used to run ludicrous with only 3 maxed out guys king Alistair, the great dragon, and fereldan banner, the other to slots I would use to level random white faction. But as of recently say 6 months ish, I barely get through with a fully maxed grey warden squad.

                        maybe I am just a complainer but ever since mythic came out and the mass revamps I feel left behind and disheartened.

                          I understand the frustration, and it's particularly understandable if you felt further advanced in the past than you are now. It's worth bearing in mind that for a long time your Alistair squad would have been right up with the strongest in the game - the equivalent now would be Daces maybe - so it feels a bit like you're not comparing like-with-like. Your current demons can't hope to match KAs of old - in fact you may well have better joy still running KAs..

                          Personally I much prefer the range of difficulties - I run a slightly lower difficulty if I'm leveling up a party and beating Ludicrous is a sign they're ready for the wilds. I *really* like it when I find that a team can beat a certain node easily but not the next, while another team is the other way round.

                          To contact a moderator, please use the Flag Post function on the post represented by a flag:


                          What happens if I break the rules?
                          At best, your post will be edited by one of the moderators and you will be issued a warning. If the offense is more serious your post will be deleted. Posting "why was my post edited/deleted?" etc. will only make matters worse, so please don't. If a moderator has not sent you a message stating why, please send the Lead Moderator a message asking for a reason.

                          Should you have already been issued warnings and continue to break the rules, you will be issued an infraction - your posting privileges will be disabled for three days, but you will still be able to view the forums as a guest.

                          For persistent and deliberate rule-breakers your account will be "Banned". That means you are no longer welcome on these forums and/or games and your account will no longer function in them. If you re-register, your new account will be banned as well.

                          Posting Suggestions
                          In the attempt to create a compromise where everyone is happy, the following suggestions are also recommended:

                          1. Be civil and courteous. This forum is visited by people from all over the world, of different ages, genders, religions, and backgrounds, and are each entitled to their own opinion. Keep in mind that in most cases, posts are not intended to offend. If you find yourself taking offense at a post, take a step back and contact the person directly, or appeal to a moderator for arbitration. Don't make the situation worse by posting in anger and lashing out at the original poster. Also, see Flaming, Right to Privacy, and Hatred.

                          2. Make sure that your message topics fit the topic description of the forum in which you are posting. This is for your own benefit - for example, a question regarding a bug or problem should be posted in the Feedback section under the appropriate heading.

                          3. Use the search function before posting, particularly if the question is problem oriented. Most technical questions have been answered before, and solutions are freely available. Additionally, before posting a bug, check the Known Issues thread to quickly see if the staff is already aware, and to find the discussion thread about that issue.

                          4. Make sure that you have followed #3 before posting

                          5. Read the sticky threads at the top of each forum - they are there for a reason, and generally contain information relevant to the forum and/or game.

                          6. Don't quote the entire message that you're responding to, only the pertinent passage. This makes it easier to read for other users.

                          7. If you find it easier to express yourself en français, auf Deutsch, en español, in Nederlands, in Italiano, or any other language, post in the International Discussion forum. Hopefully someone who speaks the same language as you will be able to assist you. All posts in other sections (non-International) of the forums must be in English, so please make use of Google Translate if you need assistance with translation. Posting in English will allow the widest range of people to assist you.

                          In addition to the Forum Rules, you are bound to the general EA Terms of Service both on these forums and in the game. Links to the TOS are as follows:

                          EA TOS English
