    Yeah she has some really interesting cards, alpha in particular. Got all of her unlocks done now as well.

    A bit of hand tuning and I think she will be great, she is certainly fun to play.

    Divinity is great for big numbers as well.

    Noticed the other night the Switch version can be played entirely touch screen. So I can disconnected the Joycons and play it in bed with the smaller form factor and no clicking buttons to annoy the wife.

    Its bloody horrible with touch controls though. Trying to cycle through a big hand is a royal pain in the ass.

    Don't think I've ever been as excited for a game release as the upcoming mobile version of this. Will genuinely transform my commute.

    Getting back into this.

    Had insane hours into the Switch version, bought a Switch Lite a few months back, the save got hosed for some reason. I was gutted and quit the game in disgust.

    I thought I was out blah blah....Iím hooked again, has that ďone more runĒ vibe Iíve only ever experienced with Isaac and Spelunky.

    Oh wow, a mobile version in QA! That's massive news.

    Hope it runs well. The framerate is the only thing that's stopped me grabbing the Switch version.

    Switch version's framerate got fixed ages ago IIRC. Unless you somehow make about a billion particles appear.

    Yeah the frame rate is fine. The buttons are round the wrong way compared to other versions which means you end your turn when you go to take a potion sometimes though :D

    That's one thing I wish they would add - something that makes it more difficult to accidentally end your turn. Make me hold the button down for half a second, something like that.

    I mostly play on pc so it really screws me up when I play on the swich as the buttons are so ingrained in muscle memory now.

    Got to the end of act 3 today, what do I do now? Same again with the other characters?

    Or try ascension mode on that character, It goes up to 20 getting harder each time. Also once you have completed on each character (apart from the watcher) you unlock the key fragments to get to act 4. Worry about finishing it with the ironclad, silent and defect before getting an explanation on the keys though.

    Yeah, finish with all three and you unlock extra content.

    Did it with ironclad, next up is Silent.

    To be honest I think I broke the game with a combination of strength relics and heavy blade.

    Yeah, it's real nice when you manage to find things that are super broken together. It doesn't often happen!

    Wait until you discover the joy of a triple upgraded catalyst.

    Nice.

    I've uninstalled it for now (it was literally preventing me from playing other games), but I'll probably jump right back in once the Watcher patch makes its way to Switch.

    Oh I didnt realise she wasnt there yet, she is an interesting character but I have lots of bad runs with her where I cant seem to get anything usable going.

    @Frogofdoom Have to agree. You can have some great runs but a lot of the time her decks just fall apart.

    And I still say Erupt needs another pass to make it 1-energy base card so there's some merit to very early game Wrath (6->9 upgraded).

    Really hoping for a mobile version in the near future. Would immediately become my go-to when bored and waiting for something.

    Quite surprised that framerate should be an issue given that the game has little actual animation!

    @MiniSchnauz it's funny as I was reading on reddit that people are finding her overpowered at lower ascension levels. I get the odd run where I can see that but far more that just fall to bits like you said.

    I'm finding that the painful bit with the Watcher is getting through act 2. I often run out of steam there, particularly on multi-target fights. When I break through into act 3, I seem to have a decent shot at getting the boss down. Focussing on ascension 1 heart runs for now and can't really see the shape of a heart-killing deck yet.

    Whatís causing my Defect to lose Focus? Is it a debuff applied by an enemy? Guess it must be but I didnít notice it.

    There's a few Defect cards that do it. Biased Cognition is the main one, where it gives you a bunch of Focus but then you lose a bit every turn. And Hyperbeam is a powerful AoE card that makes you lose Focus.

    EDIT: Actually, it's only those two that do it.

    Oh I see, yes itís Biased Cognition. Huh. I didnít think that would keep reducing my focus past its original level. Maybe I donít like that card so much!

    It's actually a great card. But if you're in a long fight, it's sometimes better to save it until the second (or third) time through your deck, so that you're not screwing yourself.

    Also, if you happen to find something that gives you an Artifact charge, the Artifact will cancel out the debuff. Which makes it extremely strong!

    There is a third card that does it as well but i forget the name. It was reworked in the latest patch from a draw card to a lose 2 focus gain 1st and 1 dex. The upgraded version is 1 focus for 1st and dex.

    Good if you arent worried about the orbs or have an artifact up.

    Edit: may be reprogram.
