I’ve played a couple dozen games on legend and I feel I have a grasp at the new game mode, here is what I feel about it:
The Beastmen are way too powerful in this mode. I normally play in twitch mode legend with books or cataclysm with maybe a couple tomes with about a 40/60 success to failure rate on average with any class and weapon combinations with about 80% on my main setups. But when there are Beastmen in the last three mission nodes, it goes from a mild challenge to an almost guaranteed loss.
The Khorne bloodstorm is the most heinous modifier I have ever seen. Fix that now, it is so bs. The second a storm ends, another starts and it deals like 70 damage per second, ridiculous.
The ‘greed’ Slaanesh mod needs a soft random. I’ve had 2 lit barrels spawn and simultaneously explode on me and other times where we’ve gotten 2 pilgrim coin drops until the last drop down.
Tempering and exchanging weapons is a poorly executed idea. The properties and traits isn’t something to even consider, it is just about power level. A far better mechanic would be to have temper shrines allow you to reroll if you already have the rarity, drop the price considerably, and move power level to shop nodes where they can be improved teamwide by anyone like the other team boons.
Many of those team boons are rancid. I don’t know why many are one use only or have a penalty attached like having to fight a super boss for something you already paid for, that’s bull.
The maps are mostly ok. I had a crash when a troll got hex buffed. There was a final Slaanesh event that had instantly ended. Then there is that one event in this donut arena where an orb needs to be charged convocation style which is waaaay too long. I very much like the thirst modifier, reverse curse of comradship, and egg modifier.
The mode boasts having this path system but it’s actually super linear. It has the bare minimum required to call it ‘paths’. Half the nodes are required and the other half are two choices. Really disappointing.
What I expected was something where you would pit various chaos gods against each other in some way and maybe clearing new paths towards good gods when you successfully do so. Either way, it’s free and I’m not complaining, just hoping this helps.
