I started a brand new game for the release of 1.2 and on the whole it's a real improvement to the earlier releases. I love the procedural spells although the not working in the day is pretty annoying I wasted an epic orb and got that negative and it's hard to know when I can and can't use this spell.
The biggest bottleneck I found was getting hold of wind shelter scrolls and these are a really important part of the game especially if the RNG is been unkind with the layout of the continent. I found myself grinding for conciousness shards so I could get them from the store.
The overland missions giving spells is great for the first level or two but then I can craft better spells so I no longer need to do the missions. I think from level 3 onwards I didn't do any overland missions. Although I did do lots of secret missions hoping for wind shelters and early on farms.
The changes to enchants I feel have taken things the wrong way I now find myself throwing most of the enchants I receive as they never seem to improve on what I'm using and my current enchants are from quite early on in the continent. Please bring back the old system.
Finally I have now reached the point where I need to reduce the overlords level using despatch missions he is now level 10 and I have 3 of my 4 npc's I lost one to reduce him from 11 to 10!!! This stage of the game is a real grind and revolves around buying gifts for the NPC's as they don't seem to spawn in any stash rooms I visit. This is on district level I would hate to have to do this on any higher level.
Despite all these issues I really feel the game is heading in the right direction and it certainly has a more enjoyable flow. I hope some of my comments help and now I'll go and continue trying to take down the overlord.
Thanks for reading.
