  • When should I stop auto-explore? OddCore

    In Brogue, I like to auto-explore the first level, as it's always very easy and not really dangerous and stop when I get to the second level, exploring it on my own from there on, as auto-explore doesn't pick up all the items, will sometimes not attack sleeping enemies (free XP!) and will not kill Bloaters from a distance (which as you all know, spells out your DOOM in capital letters).

    Am I being too careful? How deep should I let it auto-explore? Should I even use auto-explore at all?

  • I auto-explore a lot in the first levels and use it less and less as I get deeper (only reached 16 depth, so take advice with caution).

    Of course the problem is to identify threat, so my usual method is to auto-explore until I find an enemy, then I try to deal with it (darting a bloat, killing a sleeping enemy or letting a wandering jackal go) and when I feel the situation is safe I auto-explore again.

    As you get deeper, additional threats like traps or invisible enemies (damn you phantom at level 16!) make auto-exploring more dangerous.

  • I use auto-pilot for the first depth, then manually hit explore from the second level. This is to avoid monkeys stealing your stuff when on auto-pilot.

  • When playing on the tablet, once you start drawing the path of the beam to perform an attack, when the beam is already charged and ready, is there a way to cancel the attack? The game auto-pauses while selecting the position of the beam, but sometimes you realize that there is something that you want to do first so you need to stop that attack. However when you raise your fingers from the screen, the action resumes automatically giving you no option to pause or cancel the beam attack.

  • So I bought all the borderlands 2 DLC during the summer sale that happened a few months ago. I haven't even touched it because I want to get the best guns possible. Originally I planned on doing the DLC on true vault hunter mode after I completed the main story and side quests. But a few days ago I bought the level up pack that will allow me to go to level 72. Should I do the DLC on UVHM? and does it matter when I do it? I would prefer to get the best possible guns from the DLC like at level 72.

  • Possible Duplicate: Is there anyway to stop a download on Steam? I started to download Team Fortress 2 but later on decided not, so I went to my downloads and I couldn't find any way to delete the download, all I could was stop it from completing. And it had barely started to download as well so I don't want to wait for it to finish and then uninstall it.

  • So, on my old character (before the wipe) I summoned the penguins when I wasn't ready. Boy, was that a mistake. I want to summon them again, but what weapons and armor should I get first? And are the penguins still Level 9? Because every other mob doesn't have a level. I'm not sure copper armor can be upgraded into silver. And I couldn't go to different threat level planets because they are now all level 1.

  • summoning I should be doing during certain parts of the game; how many gems on which waves, and what grades should they be? When should I stop summoning? Also the ratio of orange to lime to yellow in the killgem, as well as when to squish out the orange. Other tips in general would be appreciated. EDIT: I play with setting at max aside from Waves Get Tougher Faster. ...I'm a level 900 wizard in Gemcraft: Labyrinth, with around 8500 skill points. My general goal is to create a Y/O/L supergem that goes in a trap, with a B/C/P before it that slows/stuns/armor-shreds
