I always go for it, because I enjoy the challenge of balancing the adding of cards for fights coming up in the short term, versus the looming question of "will this deck beat the heart?"|
Sometimes I get the balance right, sometimes I don't, sometimes I get lucky and sometimes even a good deck gets unlucky. That's part of the magic of roguelikes for me.
Totally understand if people don't want that from the game, but yeah... I always try to kill the heart.

I don't really find there's much of the balancing act with the heart, if I want to go for the heart I just decide at the start of Act 3 because by that point I should have basically completed my deck anyway.
Donít get me wrong - Iíll still go for the heart and have beaten it with all 3 characters (canít wait for the Watcher!), but until I get to A20, the first time I pass each rank it will probably be over 3 acts.
So far - A8 Ironclad, A2 Silent, A3 Defect.
Occasionally Iíll drop to A1 for the lols. And to keep a decent W/L ratio naturally

Finally the Heart is dead! I thought I was a goner when it took my Defect's health down to 13 in the second hit, but some timely orb boosts put me on enough frost to survive everything else it thew at me.
A18 now on the Defect. Shit gets very, very serious past A15.
Switch users get the update downloaded! We have Watcher
Nice timing for myriad reasons, heh.

Xbox has it too. What with this and Disney+, three weeks of self isolation is going to be a doddle!
Lol, just started on the switch after the update, smashed a Defect run, killed the heart and everything, and thought "wow, this is a lot easier than I remember it being!"
Turned out I didn't have the "do ascension" box checked.
Oh by the way, Biased Cognition + Orange Pellets is just *chef's kiss*
Old news for PC players, but playing Watcher feels wildly different, which is impressive.
Only had a couple of (unsuccessful) runs with her so far, already strikes me that she has the potential to be massively OP whilst also as fragile as gossamer if the cards donít fall right. Love it!

Made it to A20 as the Defect last night. Double Act 3 boss, on top of all the other penalties. Bloody hell...
