  1. Unfortunately, that wasn't the case for me. My stat showed 160 gold nuggets in storage and I had already spent numerous, so must've collected way more than 200. I had to collect the 100 nuggets again.
  2. Yeah had the same thing happening to me, I finally decided to play the game on my US account, because it'll probably take a while before we see the non-NA version. By then I'll be on vacation anyway. Game is awesome, so I don't mind playing it again once the EU version's out.
  3. Yeah that's my guess, too. Well, I'm level 1088...
  4. I'd say yeah, it's worth the hassle. Sure, trophy list keeps getting longer every now and then. It's gotten quite grindy, but most trophies are pretty easy to achieve. There's a few exceptions like getting the 2 vaults which was easier in the early days. Regarding the guild trophies... well there's always people looking for active guilds. I for example have someone on my friend's list who is actually lookig for one such guild. You can try boosting here or try your luck at community.gemsofwar.com. There's even a guild chat here. Plus, now you can grind a few of the trophies at the same time, like getting higher levels, grinding for money, getting resources for Xathenos or waiting for a Vault Gnome to appear. This has been made easier.
  5. Already have a lifetime membership.... My very first console was a Magnavox Odyssey 2.
  6. So in other words, the platinum is unobtainable for the digital version? Now that would be a bummer, since I've gotten the digital version in the flash sale a few days ago...
  7. That's what I'm doing at the moment: logging in every day and hope for a few new shells. Last 3 days I've only gotten one new shell though. Digging gives way too few shells to be effective. Also missing the collectibles. Guess that's the badges you earn from daily quests. Nope, collectibles is really just shells, fish and bugs. Got the last missing shell yesterday and that also popped the collectible trophy even though I'm missing like 4 badges. So badges don't seem to count.
  8. I read ya! I ain't time skipping either, doing it the old-school way: just hanging in there. For me it's not that I am against skipping, I consider it a challenge NOT to skip. I have a plethora of super easy platinums so I don't mind spending some quality time with Fallout Shelter, what with me being a fan of the Fallout franchise. To each their own.
  9. Sadly, I hardly ever post on this forum even though I use PSNP daily for trophy statistics. Here's my first trophy story: Back in January 2010 I bought Fallout 3 for PC and even though my machine was up to specs, the game would constantly crash. At the same time a buddy of mine talked about how awesome his new PS3 looked. Well, seeing that Fallout 3 was actually available on PS3, I bought my console in February. I didn't know about trophies back then. February 28th, I fired the console up for the first time and instead of Fallout 3 I first loaded up Assassin's Creed 2, which came bundled with the PS3. After a few seconds I heard a Ding and that message in the corner, telling me I had earned a trophy. A what? I looked it up and found out about trophies. Interesting, I thought... Turned out Fallout 3 should become my first Platinum
  10. Thanks for the list, trixter, that'll be a big help. Just a note: Miner popper after a third through mining the stones in the mine.
  11. Ehm, thanks for the answer but my question was kinda ironic! Actually I do know what a HEX is... now I feel kinda bad, having you made write so much information and making you feel older... sorry pal! I should've used a few smilies to emphasize the irony factor, but then again, I'm old-school and never use smilies... Still, I appreciate the effort!
  12. Wow, been waiting such a long time for that game now, already given up hope it'll ever come to console... And now that it's up, I ain't got the time to play it! Irony at its best. Yeah, totally began playing Neverwinter Online like a week ago. If I hadn't started on that long-time investment, I'd have bought Blades of Destiny. Though the price is high, would've expected something like 19.99. But 39.99? Will get it once it drops below 20. I don't mind if it looks old, after all, almost 50% of "new" games are retros or remakes. Yep, I'm a gonna play it, sooner or later. Oh, and talking about HEX editors... what's a HEX anyway....?!?
  13. That's so awesome, could be a line out of Hamlet! Anyways, ever since I played this silly game earlier this year, I'm kinda hooked on getting the EU Version, thus getting 2 more platinums.
  14. You get Ancient Souls for collecting Hero Souls. If you check the tab where it says "Transcend for +0", just below is "Next AS: 349K". That's the amount of Hero Souls you have to collect to get the next +1 AS. Once you've reached that amount, the "Next AS:" will rise a little higher than previously. You always need a bit more Hero Souls to gain 1 AS. But as you transcend, you'll gain a lot more Hero Souls each time. This link shows an easy table regarding how many HS are needed for a certain AS level. Most guides say that a good moment to transcend is when you have somewhere between 6-10 AS. You can decide for yourself: if it takes too long, say several Ascensions to reach the next +AS, then it's a good time to transcend. By the way, you wanna activate scientific notations. I've so gotten used to numbers like 5.654e223. It's easier to calculate, 1e20 is 10x 1e19 etc. It's easier on the eye in my opinion.
  15. Yep, got 2 Mongos recently (like last week), one with a gem key, the other from a glory key.
  16. Hey all. I'm the owner of a Gems of War guild. We ain't in the top ranks, meaning we're not hardcore gamers (at least in that game). But we're close to the 15.6 million required for the team synergy trophy. There's 5 open spots. If you wanna help getting the trophy, please do let me know. We're currently only about 11 players actively saving gold, so should more than 5 people be interested, I won't hesitate to kick some of the not so active members. So if 5 new members contribute like 700k each, we're well over 15.6 million. That being said, you should bring a minimum of 500k to be able to join. I don't need no picture proof though. I trust you: if you say you got 600k, then that's fine with me. I'll reserve like 3 spots for people who wanna join after we've contributed the sum and gotten the trophy. They should get the trophy, too, if they join later that same week. Don't know if we're ready next week (April 17-23), but the following week (April 24-30) we're sure to have enough gold. Please do send either a PSN message (ID: Theophobos) or post here. Thanks for helping.
  17. Well if you've got Alabaster gilded so many times, I'd remove the Atlas gilds to either Phthalo or Alabaster (depending on how high a level you can get with Alabaster). Haven't gotten that far yet, but I got 150 gilds on Phthalo, probably gilding Lilin next, then Alabaster (I usually skip one hero). You might wanna keep a few gilds on Atlas to get to Phthalo/Alabaster faster, depending on your progress.
  18. Not by a long shot. Depending on your luck on the exchange, you might have to pay more than 10 or even 20 million credits for one of the rarer chips (I forked over 22 million for one 2409 chip). Another great source of income are duty officer missions (unlocked at level 11) and admiralty missions (unlocked at level 52). And these help you progress fast towards the specialization trophy. Level 60 is the max, but you'll have plenty more level-ups before having 30 skills in one skill tree (beware that a few skill trees only have 15 skills).
  19. I've recently switched from idle to hybrid gameplay. If I can't progress fast enough in idle playstyle, I activate my skills and progress like crazy. I don't play too often (job, other games, music), but I've easily reached a new HZE yesterday (1640). I have all ancients, and am currently doing something like 50k souls an hour (usually playing half an hour, that gets me up to level 1000-1100, before progress starts to slow down). I have 120 gilds on Phthalo (went directly from Atlas to Phthalo, entirely skipping Terra), with the bonus from Argaiv that's +120'000% bonus damage. Now I'm just lacking behind with the active ancients, my Juggernaut gives +1% damage per combo point. That needs to be higher to really reach the zones 2000+. Getting from zone 1000 to 2000 is probably faster than from scratch to 1000. At least with me. Talk about gilding, I went like this. Powering the usual 5 (Treeleaf, Samurai, Ivan, Princess, Seer). But then instead of powering up only Samurai I went with Frostleaf, powered him up to 20 gilds and once I got far enough I put 60 gilds on Atlas, 10 on Terra (to get to Phthalo faster), and now have 120 gilds on Phthalo, currently keeping 30 gilds on Atlas. Got a few days off in April, so I'm trying to push towards zone 3600 as soon as possible.
  20. Awesome, thanks for the link. Will be using this!
  21. How many hero souls do you have? This is a game changer. Also, try to pick up a few good relics that support your idle play style. When you get to bosses, use your skills and go all in. But I'd focus on getting hero souls first. Cool if you can make it to 200, that's a guaranteed hero soul boss. I was around 100 hero souls the first time I was around 160.
  22. Well it's two months after the previous post, but for anyone looking for PSN cards (physical or digital): the aforementioned play-asia also sells these cards, I frequently buy foreign digital PSN codes there.
  23. Honestly, I didn't expect the game to auto-pop and was rather looking forward to earn all trophies a 2nd time. That didn't work and my completion time says 6 seconds...
  24. Awesome job here, MMDE. Saw this game a few weeks back, and it's actually on sale again in EU stores. I'd totally play it now if I hadn't gotten Uncharted for PS4. Might come back at a later time though. Your guide will come in handy. Also, thanks for the video in your initial post. Love those old-school RPGs!
  25. I can't confirm that. Meanwhile I've gotten the Inquisitor trophy, thus I patched the game up. But neither pre-patched nor after patch the game ever had fan issues. In fact, I somewhat enjoy playing the PS3 version more. My PS4's fan would go all crazy while playing. Almost had the impression my PS4 was about to lift off... PS3 is more silent, can enjoy the game slightly more. I guess these are personal things and hardly describe any general issue.
