Talk about the game. What game? The game with the power? What power? The power of ... aw, skip it.

bouncy battery ball

Post by zatade »

Hello
I recently started playing Twilight Heroes and am really enjoying it. As I am still working on my 'initial continuity' I do not have any experience with classes other than my current class of Elemental. I donated and exchanged for the bouncy battery ball. I realize that in games, item of the month objects are usually most beneficial to either a specific class or level range. Given my limited Twilight Heroes experience, I am having difficulty seeing is the benefit of the object to gameplay.

Could someone please elaborate on when the bouncy battery ball is most useful.
Thanks.

Hi zatade, I'm glad you're enjoying the game.

The ball becomes exponentially more useful the more ranged attacks you can get. It increases naturally with your Reflexes stat and a few special effects increase it, but Gadgeteers are the real masters of ratcheting up ranged attacks.

If you want the full (spoilery) breakdown, I'd check the wiki.

Cheers!
Kinak

Hi Kinak: Thanks for the really speedy reply. A Gadgeteer retcon already sounded like fun, this should make it even better. Once Mick has the decency to die, I shall give it a try:)

The ball also synergizes nicely with Bedivere's vambraces.

also, Gandiva's Charm, one of the 4 current yearly IOTM talismans grants +3 ranged attacks and can be equipped right at level 1 ;)

6 hits from turn 1 is nice, but the lowly enemies were still only worth 1 PP .. and enemies in level~~2 places were worth 2 PP .. and so on ...

I used the RETCON device this morning and became a gadgeteer, pulled the bouncy battery ball, and life is good. It works really really well. Instead of having to rest in my hideout about every 3rd turn, I am out there saving the city.
