Focused Feedback: The Graveyard Shift (Hero Story Arc, Level 20-29)

Recommended Posts

I tried this and:

  • The Vahzilok plague is kind of punitive and not particularly fun
  • The fifth mission has way too much fire doing way too much damage to easily be able to do the two things you need to do in order to prevent the explosion
  • A boss spawning multiple copies of himself is kind of cool. Him doing it without warning in the middle of a fight, and ignoring your pets to focus fire you down isn't really very fun at all.

I enjoyed this until the 5th mission, despite the kill 20 Freakshow kill 15 Vahzilok etc. I feel like the end of the 5th and the entirety of the 6th is overtuned.

 

I also had more mobs spawn than "number of heroes I fight as" which I'm not sure is a bug or a feature.

Just a little note, in the vip bar- if you want us to take out mander then name the guy that or tell us to take our salamander, my kiddo was so frustrated trying to find mander, also if you want us to rescue the staff say that, again a bit of frustration from a kiddo who stealths everything and was sure there was an issue when there was no glowies or typical investigation items. It's a little thing but on an already long mission with lots of zoning it's sometimes nice to have clearer objections

Good point. Added some additional dialog in the mission opening to connect the dots:

If you hurry, we can catch them, and maybe get some solid answers!

Agent Watkins hands you a list of names.

Also keep a look out for these people while you're there: Sally 'Mander' Martinez, Cortex, Dr. Morben, Harry 'Grey Matter' DeMauro, Godwin Blaire, and Tanisha 'Vivisec' Jameson. Any of them are high-priority targets if you can collar them."

The plague has been reworked. It punishes less and the medical research lab is much better at counteracting it.

 

The fire is being adjusted again.

 

Cortex's ambush spawn was not properly behaving, but this didn't show up as often in beta testing. It's being adjusted.
