Finally reached Civ-lvl 100 (yep, 100) and super-happy about it right now :-)
First of all: thanks Arcen staff for making such a great game! Has been a long time since
I've played a game as great as this one.
(And also thanks for making this thread which kept me going from where I originally wanted
to stop playing to this moment)
But let's come to the way I've taken so far in this wonderful (can't say it often enough) game:
Up until about lvl 20 or so I spent alot of my time fighting minibosses in rare commodity
towers (didn't realize how to get higher spell-ranks until then... so yea... the fights were really
Besides that I always tried to have as many tiles scouted as possible (see:all) so when I wasn't
right in an epic boss-battle (or farming potions for them) I was sure to be found in one of my
settlements building up a nice place to live at with my little npc-friends).
Once I overcame my fear about going to the underground areas things changed quite a lot, however
(First underground areas were still about 10 lvls lower than me):
Equipped with my new, powerful, "high" rank spells i felt ready to tackle some lieutenants an finally
even an overlord or two.
When I hit lvl 40 I felt the need for another ->deep going<- change as I didn't find anything left to
accomplish (that I actually felt like accomplishing) with overlords only beeing time-consuming and not
offering enough reward to keep me interested in them and my settlements being built up (biggest
settlement had about 25 inhabitants and most of the other ones about 10-15).
So i decided to explore the underground-areas a bit more. They seemed to have just the right
difficulty now and I could find everything I needed down there (dust for healing- and mana-
scrolls, "stones" to keep my spells on acceptable lvls...), most importantly also bat-bosses that
I could kill _at the same time_ I was farming all the required stuff - quite comfortable.
Well, time passed and lvls came almost by themselves while I was venturing through the deepest
depths AVWW has yet to offer (which I've found) with me now finally reaching my "long" awaited
goal: Civ-lvl 100
Although I've already spent so much time playing it the game is still as exciting for me to play as
when I did my first steps in it.
Again: great job Arcen staff and I'm looking forward to many many more great updates that, hopefully,
will come for AVWW!
And sorry for torturing you all with such a long post but I just couldn't hold back my excitement
