The insane are easier to control since you can use their irrational fears. Methinks the vlish have too much power. We must start a coup to put them in their place.

Perhaps the reason you think the "concentric rings" are moving is because they are not, in fact, concentric rings.

They're not circular, but you know what? IT'S CLOSE ENOUGH.

Yes. I am quite sure that it was the "ring" part that was in question. Not the "concentric" part.

Hey!

Is there something wrong with my eyes, or did, on one picture, a pleayer really have a couple of drakons, a drayk, a roamer and a couple of those new things?

That must be very late in the game, or ... ?

You are not wrong and the new things are kyshakks. I was running that party during the last chapter. It helped to compare the relative damages of each creation versus the same opponent. The game does favor replacing older creations more than the older games, but you still need to see if the improvement is worth it for you.

I look forward to comparing notes on things like this after release. I have a guy who skipped the third tier, and never made anything from the fifth tier. He did quite well, though of course I have no idea how well he would do in the released version of the game, trying the tactics that worked well in various beta waves.

This might be a stupid question but... I know you can play as a servile in this game, but can you still play as a human as well?

One class is a servile. The other four are humans.

And that day will be soon.

I'm playing a melee fighting servile right now. It seems to be fun, but I keep having to remember that I don't have half a dozen creations to swarm over the opposition.

I tried a fire shaping shaper type for the last chapter with nothing higher than tier 4 creations and it worked well. It should be possible to use only tier 3 creations if you have enough shaping skill and have 4 or 5 of them. The main advantage to the tier 4 and 5 creations is the obscenely high health even with minimum shaping skill and creation skill.

Well, a servile is definetly a very nice addition. I figure it'd be a warior/mage type?

I gathered, there is no mage/shaper class, right?
Too, bad, I was hoping for it. But I guess it'd be too powerful.
Maybe in the 5th game you could pick a, for example drakon or an eyebeast class, which'd be like that.

Anyway - is there a list of all the creations anywhere yet?

Are we still limited to having just three different types of creations at one time? That really got my goat in previous GFs...

Unless I misinterpreted the previous GF4 chatter, the 3 creation type limit is gone.

I just checked and I could have 6 different creation types at once so the limit is gone. It usually doesn't pay to have that many except to have a variety of damage types and some creations run out of spell energy for their missle attacks in long hasted combats.

Excuse me Randomizer, but this is your first betatesting experience?

EDIT: I should use PM more often. >_<

Without denying your point, the information about the dropped creation limit is already available from DV and the released screenshots.

Actually, I think MagmaDragoon asked that because he is curious about what it takes to become a beta tester because he wants to become one later on.

But Dikiyoba's just guessing.

...And Dikiyoba is correct.

I would have been one of the GF4 betatester, but I waited too much to send my data to the application, sadly.

Very sadly.
