Patch 2.0
Patch Date Update Information
2.0.9.1-

2.0.12

Jun 30, 2016 Graphics Notes
  • All in-game graphics have been remade.
  • Added a Realm Background where you will be able to see your alignment, faction, building and assistant themes.
  • Removed the Treasure. Clicking is now done directly on the background.
  • Added particle effects for clicking on the background (can be disabled).

UI Notes

  • Added a Tutorial & Hint System to help new players with the basics mechanics of the game.
  • Added Build Template Savers for Mercenary and Research builds.
  • Added a Buy 1000 option for buildings, Royal Exchanges and Excavations. Unlocked at Reincarnation 1.
  • Added a BUY ALL upgrades button in the Upgrades panel. Unlocked at 100 Gems.
  • Added Red Dot markers to highlight significant in-game situations.
  • Added a note in the Excavation panel stating how many artifacts you can find when excavating at a specific time.

Balance Minor Notes

  • Faction Coin base find chance increased to 10%, up from 2%.
  • Formula for FC rewards from excavations reworked.
  • Buildings no longer give assistants when you reach 100 of them. Instead, the first two building upgrades tiers for each category now give 1 assistant each (basically you get double the assistants, and earlier). Hall of Legends does not provide assistants this way (same as before).
  • Spell upgrade-related secret trophies (i.e. Fairy Choir, Hell Rush…) are now normal trophies, allowing players to know their requirements beforehand.
  • Nonexistent Ruler cost lowered to 10e153, down from 10e183.

Bugfixes

  • Fixed a bug with the requirements of Fairy Challenge 1.
  • Fixed countless typos and minor text issues.

In addition, we’d like to announce that Realm Grinder is going to be launched on mobile environment soon!
Once it is out, you will be able to play on all Android and iOS devices with the same Cloud account you use on Kongregate.
The new UI has been refit with that purpose in mind, but all purely web features such as tooltips and key bindings have been maintained. You may also switch from the new Upgrades view to the old one via the Switch Lists to Compact Style option in the Options menu without losing any functionalities.
Regarding development, this won’t change anything: both versions work on the same engine, so we won’t have double the work to do and there will be no risk of discontinued developing for the web platform.
Last but not least, we are already working on the next content update: Spell Upgrades! No ETA as of yet, but we’ll try our best to deliver it as soon as possible.

EDIT 1

To all people disoriented by the new UI, here is a brief guide on how to take advantage of the new features or return to your old customs with the help of options.

  • Unavailable upgrades and trophies now have a more distinguishable border and should be more easily recognizable from brighter ones.

Version 2.0.10.4:

  • Follow-up workaround for the NaN gems (short numbers will show it as 1 M) bug which should allow players to continue playing again. We’ll keep investigating this issue closely until we solve it permanently.
  • Background assistants will now increase in amount as you get more assistants, and they will now be mixed between base and prestige faction (if you have one).

  • Fixed an issue causing unintended advancing of in-game time.

Patch 1.6
Patch Date Update Information

  • NEW TROPHIES: more regular trophies plus two secrets, with their respective unique upgrades!
  • NEW UPGRADES: Heroic and Villainous Proclamations, for post-ascension only.

WHAT’S NEXT:

We’re still working on the new Spell System update and Neutral Prestige faction, so there are no big news to advertise here. This minor update is here to fill in the gap since they still require a bit of time before release. Regardless, we are also going forward at a good pace on the overhaul. Here are some new pics for you!

1.6.52.0 April 9 2016 PRESTIGE CHALLENGES PATCH NOTES:
  • NEW FACTION CHALLENGES: 5 challenge tiers and a spell upgrade for Dwarves and Drow!

WHAT’S NEXT:

As some of you may know, the next big update will feature the Neutral Prestige faction, finally bringing the intended end game to the true post-ascension stage. The Neutral Prestige will come with 9 base upgrades and a base spell as all other factions, plus a Heritage, a Bloodline and its own set of researches. Challenges will come a bit later, completing the Prestige cycle and awarding the Prestige Challenger trophy.
What you may not know yet is that before the Neutral Prestige expansion we will release at least one more minor update! This will be a huge addition to the existing spell system, allowing players to make strategic use of their excess mana regen and max mana instead of throwing everything into more Tax Collections.
Last but not least, here are some additional icon previews for the graphic overhaul!

1.6.51 April 1 2016
  • Added a new secret upgrade. (NOTE: This upgrade no longer exists as it was only an April Fools joke!)
  • Fixed an issue that caused Drow assistant to crawl on the game screen.
1.6.50 Mar 25 2016 Global Reminder: The Easter Event is starting on Mar 25th 2016, 1.01PM UTC and will end on Mar 31st 2016, 6.59PM UTC! Check the forums for full details about the Event mechanics.

1.6.49 Mar 18 2016 EXPANSION: SECRETS OF THE UNDERWORLD
  • NEW RESEARCHES: The Research system has been expanded to the Prestige factions: Dwarves and Drow. Starting from Reincarnation 29, excavate enough and follow the questline to discover the Secrets of the Underworld and unlock Prestige Unique Buildings and 30 new researches for you to explore, unlock and customize your builds in synergy with the faction combinations.
  • NEW TROPHIES: new regular trophies, research-related trophies and one new secret trophy!
  • NEW ARTIFACTS: new key artifacts for the Prestige Research questlines and two more.
  • ADDED RUBY UPGRADES RESET OPTION! You can now reset all your Ruby Upgrades and get your Rubies back to spend as you see fit, at the cost of a few Rubies.

Non-Expansion notes:

  • Heaven’s Domain upgrade gives a bonus of 35000% per spell active, up from 25000%.
  • Enchanted Fields upgrade has no longer a linear progression: it will perform better under 500 assistants, and will suffer diminishing returns after that value.
  • Faceless Bloodline reworked: now increases maximum mana based on mana produced in this game instead of its previous effect.
  • Dwarven Bloodline reworked: now increases the production of all buildings based on excavations made instead of its previous effect.
  • Berserking (W205) now has diminishing returns.

  • Undead’s Walking Dead, Plagued Buildings, Dead Fields and Undead Resilience have been improved.
  • Drow’s Honor Among Killers now increase Faction Coin chance based on the amount of assistants you own instead of its previous effect.
  • Drow’s Shadow Advance effect increased to 750%, up from 300%.
  • Elves’ Elven Luck effect decreased.
  • Angels’ God’s Hand now generates Faction Coins based on mana regeneration rather than a flat 200.
  • Grinding Dedication now remains unlocked through abdications and reincarnations.
  • Fixed an issue that caused incorrect upgrade counts.
  • Lightning Strike’s new formula was offset for high amounts of Iron Strongholds. We changed it so that it is now slightly more powerful for very low amounts of buildings, and stabilizing to the old value when you get more.

WHAT’S NEXT

Easter Event! It will start next week :) we’ll make a dedicated post for it in a few days, explaining the dates and mechanics in full detail.
Also, there are some additional icon previews for the graphic overhaul! (see source post)

1.6.48.0 Mar 6 2016 EXPANSION: ASCENSIONS:
At Reincarnation 39, the Reincarnate button will turn into an Ascend button with the same requisites as Reincarnation 40. Clicking it will reset all the progress a Reincarnation would reset, but it will not reset your Reincarnation count, and then will revert back to the Reincarnate button for Reincarnation 41 with new requisites. By Ascending you will unlock a new main currency, Diamond Coins, that will be used for post-ascension upgrades and features, resulting in much smaller numbers. All upgrades that previously cost Gold Coins are now free, and the formulas for subsequent Reincarnations will change to allow continued progress. All Gifts bonuses, Scry Rewards, Ruby bonuses, Event bonuses and Gem bonuses will NOT be affected by the Ascension reduction.
  • NEW ARTIFACTS: a couple artifacts were added at mid-range Reincarnation levels. They will also unlock upgrades that should help progress significantly during those stages of the game.
  • NEW TROPHIES: two new secret trophies for your fun!
  • Challenges will now provide the fulfill requirement descriptions immediately. * We have decided this way since it is usually extremely difficult to figure out the requirements without a guide/forum/wiki, and since Challenges are now an important aspect of the game we don’t want players to skip them simply because they wouldn’t know what to do.
  • Added a stat to track the activity time for each individual spell. Brainwave headstart from Faceless’ Focused Thoughts Challenge is now calculated based on that stat rather than the amount of Brainwaves cast.
  • Autocast upgrades now also help while offline by increasing the Mana Produced and Spells cast statistics.
  • Offline production has been reviewed and tweaked to provide more consistent results.
  • Offline bonus shown in the production tooltip is now the full multiplier you get when you go offline. Previously, it was shown as 100% + multiplier.
  • Royal Exchanges and Excavations tooltips now show how many you have rather than the next one.
  • A lot of internal changes have been made to prevent tooltip inconsistencies. Several upgrades were also working incorrectly or were showing an incorrect tooltip – all of those have been fixed. All bonuses are now written as percentages rather than multipliers.
  • (Hotfix #1): Fixed minor graphic issues and Primal Balance not being affected by offline mana production.

WHAT’S NEXT

Starting from Reincarnation 23, excavate enough and follow the questline to discover the Secrets of the Realm and unlock Neutral Unique Buildings and more than 40 new researches for you to explore, unlock and customize your builds more than ever before!
  • EXCAVATIONS REVAMP: Excavations now have their dedicated panel, no longer littering the upgrade list with their everlasting presence and allowing players to manage them better. In the new panel, you can now Multibuy excavations in the same way you do with buildings (you can activate the Excavation Warning option in the Options menu if you don’t want to excavate too much); Reset your excavation progress manually at the cost of a few Rubies; and lastly you can check Excavations stats and logs and a list of the artifacts you discovered so far. Note: Rubies are only awarded the first time you reach specific Excavation thresholds – resetting excavations and reaching them again won’t award more rubies.

They no longer give a fixed 2% bonus, but are instead tied to a new upgrade system. As a result, their bonus per money value has been increased significantly as Rubies now not only give a nifty bonus for accumulating them, but you can also spend them to fulfill your most urgent Realm Grinding needs such as assistants, mana regeneration and more. WARNING: rubies are no longer tied to your Kongregate account and will be reset upon Hard Resetting or importing from a different save. Rubies you purchased before this expansion will be available for transfer to a save of your choice.

  • NEW UPGRADES: new upgrade tiers for most of the already existing categories including but not limited to buildings and neutral production.

  • Territorial Expanse was recently nerfed incorrectly due to a typo in the formula, which was always greater than 1%, even with thousands of Labyrinths.

  • Faceless Heritage has been scaled down slightly.
  • Fixed an issue which caused some players not to receive offline production under certain circumstances.
  • Fixed a bug that caused some neutral building trophies not to unlock correctly.
1.1.14 Jun 24th, 2015

EXPANSION: THE ANCIENT RACES

  • NEW ALIGNMENT: the neutral alignment unlocks new buildings and upgrades, as well as three new neutral factions.
  • NEW FACTIONS: neutral factions are unlocked through the Archeology System, which kicks in after you get to 1 Billion Gems. From there on, follow the upgrade sseries to discover and unlock the three new prestige factions. They will cost more and perform better in the endgame than the old factions.
  • NEW UPGRADES: each building has 2 more upgrade tiers with higher efficiency.
  • NEW TROPHIES: there is now a regular trophy for each of the new buildings, three new trophy tiers for all buildings, and 8 new secret trophies for you to discover.

  • A new rollback system has been implemented to help players who don't want to lose their data. The game now creates an additional savefile every 10 minutes which is checked against your default savefile. If your default save appears to be corrupted, the game will ask you whether to load the backup save or start from scratch.

1.0.12 Jun 1st, 2015
  • NEW UPGRADES: added some misc late game upgrades for your pleasure.
  • Moon Blessing bonus per click ratio has been reduced, but it now accounts for total clicks instead of clicks in this game. The final result should be much higher.

  • Elven Treasure casing now grants +25k per trophy instead of a flat +250k.
  • Added more trophies for coins gained and a secret trophy.
  • Mana Upgrade icons were redesigned.
1.0.11 May 31st, 2015

  • More gray screen fixes.
1.0.10 May 30th, 2015
  • NEW UPGRADES: upon unlocking the Faction Champion trophies (buy all upgrades for a certain faction), you will unlock a Faction Heritage upgrade.

You can have all Faction Heritage upgrades at once, and they stack!
  • 2 NEW SECRET TROPHIES!
1.0.9 May 28th, 2015
  • Added Hotkeys for Spells! 1: Tax Collection, 2: Call to Arms, 3: Alignment Spell, 4: Faction Spell.
  • NEW UPGRADES: each building now unlocks a new upgrade when you build 200 of them.

1.0.6 May 25th, 2015
  • Added thousand separator to numbers.
  • Farm, Inn, and Blacksmith upgrade series reworked: now upgrades are scaling from 100% to 400%. This should slightly level the difference between building tiers and give a significant boost to the Fairy faction. Fairy upgrades were toned down a bit due to this change, but the final result is still way higher than before.
  • Goblin's Strong Currency was still too high of a boost compared to all other factions, therefore its high-end scaling was toned down a bit more, while its starting boost is roughly the same.
  • Undead's Night Time spell has been buffed to have more impact on lower tier buildings.
  • Hall of Legends upgrade series was bugged and has been reworked. Now non-Hall of Legends buildings production should be more consistent and, in most cases, higher.

2017 Edit

St Valentine’s
Feb 8 2016 Hello Everyone!
Can you feel the love in the air? Be it romantic love, admiration towards the beauty of nature or passion for violence and torture, the Valentine’s Day event for Realm Grinder is coming.
The Valentine event will be starting on Feb 12th 2016, 1.01 PM UTC and will end on Feb 16th 2016, 12.59 PM UTC
It will feature a new resource, Hearts , which can be collected passively at a rate of 1 per second. You will be able to increase your Heart production by doing any of the following:
  • Casting Call to Love (see below) will increase your Hearts per second rate while online.
  • Staying offline for specific amount of times will unlock upgrades which increase your Hearts per second rate while offline.
  • Scrying and choosing the right option will temporarily increase your Hearts per second both online and offline.

Speaking about Call to Love , it is a new spell – only available during Valentine’s Event – which replaces Call to Arms for the same effect with a reduced cost of 200 mana (rather than Call to Arms’ 400).
What should I do with all these Hearts, you will ask? You will be able to spend them on upgrades, of course. For the duration of Valentine’s Event, Heart upgrades for assistants, mana regeneration, max mana, production bonus from gems and production bonus from royal exchanges will be available to purchase at a progressively increasing cost, much like the current Ruby upgrades. In addition, every 100 Heart upgrades purchased you will be awarded a free Ruby.
As usual, there will be Quests and Feats to unlock: you will be able to find every information you need in the Events panel in game! Note: Event Feat requirements will no longer be hidden before you unlock them.
Update: info on Heart production tiers.
Your Hearts per second will go up by 1 every time you cast an amount of Call to Love equal to a power of 10 (10, 100, 1000, 10000, …)
Your Offline Hearts per second will go up by 1 every time you stay offline for an amount of seconds equal to a power of 10 multiplied by 20 (200, 2000, 20000, 200000, …)

2016 Edit

Halloween
May 17 2016 Hello everyone!
Shadows are gathering, and monsters are starting to lurk in the dark corners of the Realms… Choose your own, feed and grow it to its maximum potential!
The Halloween event will be starting on Oct 28th 2016, 12.01 PM UTC and will end on Nov 04th 2016, 7.59 PM UTC.
This event will feature daily presents (as we did for the last Christmas), inside which you will found a random monster, up to a maximum of three. Once you have found a monster, you will be able to feed it resources (see below) to make it grow, unlocking perks and bonuses in the process.


There will be three new resources for the event: Blood, Ectoplasm and Bones. They will appear in a random location of the game screen at a rate of 1 per minute, stacking up to 480 units (8 hours). You can only collect one type of resource: by doing so, the others will disappear.

Each resource will be used to feed a single monster, which will gain levels as it grows. At levels 1, 10, 25 and 50 each monster will grant you new perks, including new unique spells and upgrades. You will be able to gain advantage of one single monster at a time, but they can be toggled on and off on the fly in the Event panel.

As usual, there will be Quests and Feats to unlock: you will be able to find every information you need in the Events panel in game!

Remember that all Halloween upgrades and their bonuses will disappear after the event is over, with the exception of Quest bonuses and Feat achievements.

Summer Festival
Aug 24 2016 Hello Everyone!
The Summer Festival is going to enliven the realms very soon! You will be called upon to make a choice, for the Summeraans and the Winterly are bringing war in your lands.
The Summer Festival event will be starting on Aug 30th 2016, 1.01 PM UTC and will end on Sep 06th 2016, 6.59 PM UTC.
There will be two new resources for the event: Flame and Frost Orbs. They will appear in a random location of the game screen at a rate of 1 per minute, stacking up to 480 orbs (8 hours). You can only collect one type of orb: by doing so, the other will disappear.
Flame Orbs will be used to purchase and empower Summeraan upgrades, while Frost Orbs will do the same for the Winterly. As you may have been wondering until now, the Summeraans and the Winterly are two new mini-factions which will last for the duration of the event, they will stack upon any existing faction and will provide 3 new upgrades and a new spell to boost your production! As with any faction in Realm Grinder, you can choose to affiliate with only one of them per abdication – upgrades will remain free if you purchased them once though.
As usual, there will be Quests and Feats to unlock: you will be able to find every information you need in the Events panel in game!
Remember that all Summer Festival upgrades and their bonuses will disappear after the event is over, with the exception of Quest bonuses and Feat achievements.
1st Anniversary
May 17 2016 Hello everyone!
We’d like to thank you all for playing Realm Grinder with us for a whole year long. We are deeply grateful to every single one of you, and we wish to keep going forward with you for the years to come!
For May 19th, the first anniversary of Realm Grinder, we’d like to offer new and old players the chance to get the first two Gifts (Heroes and Kings) with a 50% discount.
Here’s a recap of the items on sale:
Gift of the Heroes: Increase the production of all buildings by 25%, click rewards by 15%, faction coin chance by 5% and provide +0.50 mana per second. It will also grant +25,000 gold and +20 faction coins for each faction upon any reset, allowing you to immediately choose one of the vanilla factions. This upgrade is permanent and will persist through Abdications, Reincarnations, Ascensions and Hard Resets.
Gift of the Kings: Increase the production of all buildings by 50%, click rewards by 30%, faction coin chance by 5% and provide a special assistant which actually autoclicks twice a second (triggering all real click effects and increasing the click stat). It will also grant +10 Quadrillion (10e15) gold and +500 coins for each vanilla faction upon any reset. This upgrade is permanent and will persist through Abdications and Hard Resets.
In addition to the sale, the event will also feature a new unique upgrade, boosting your production based on all the time you spent playing Realm Grinder.
The promotion and the upgrade effect duration will be limited to the anniversary event, starting May 19th 2016, 12.00 PM UTC and will end on May 20th 2016, 7.00 PM UTC.
April Fool
Apr 1 2016 Hello everyone!
As you know, in the next part of the Underworld expansion we will introduce a new faction, which like all prestiges, will stack its power upon the existing Neutral factions. We are finally ready to announce what it will be: TROLLS!
Trolls will feature a pink background and will have no assistant icon, while their unique building will be the Troll’s Den, replacing Orcish Arena. Most of their upgrades will be random-based, using random formulas for production boosts and picking random targets based on total clicks made. The development for the new faction is 75% complete and will be uploaded live in the next several days.
In the meantime, we added a new secret upgrade boosting your production significantly, to allow easier progress in all stages of the game. Its bonus will also not be reduced by Ascending, so make sure you look for it in your upgrades list! Cheers!
Easter Event
Mar 25 2016 Hello Everyone!
The Easter Season is coming to Realm Grinder. Make sure you bring your egg basket, because there will be a huge hunt to do!
The Easter event will be starting on Mar 25th 2016, 1.01 PM UTC and will end on Mar 31st 2016, 6.59 PM UTC. We moved the end of the event a couple hours later as many players asked last time!
The new resource for Easter will be, guess what, Eggs! They will appear in a random location of the game screen at a rate of 1 per minute, stacking up to 480 eggs (8 hours). When collected, each of them will produce one random Egg among three different types: Common, Rare and Unique.
  • Common Eggs = White, normal eggs that will work as the primary currency for the Easter Event.
  • Rare Eggs = Blue-colored eggs that also work as a currency for buying and increasing the bonus of an upgrade that boosts your production.
  • Unique Eggs = Uniquely shaped and colored eggs that you can only find once per type. There are 8 Unique Eggs to find, and each one of them will unlock an unique upgrade. In addition, when you buy or find an Unique Egg, you will also gain a free Ruby!

As usual, there will be Quests and Feats to unlock: you will be able to find every information you need in the Events panel in game!
Remember that all Easter upgrades and their bonuses will disappear after the event is over, with the exception of Quest bonuses and Feat achievements.

Valentine’s Day Event
Feb 2 2016 Hello Everyone!
Can you feel the love in the air? Be it romantic love, admiration towards the beauty of nature or passion for violence and torture, the Valentine’s Day event for Realm Grinder is coming.
The Valentine event will be starting on Feb 12th 2016, 1.01 PM UTC and will end on Feb 16th 2016, 12.59 PM UTC

It will feature a new resource, Hearts, which can be collected passively at a rate of 1 per second. You will be able to increase your Heart production by doing any of the following:

  • Casting Call to Love (see below) will increase your Hearts per second rate while online.
  • Staying offline for specific amount of times will unlock upgrades which increase your Hearts per second rate while offline.
  • Scrying and choosing the right option will temporarily increase your Hearts per second both online and offline.

Speaking about Call to Love, it is a new spell – only available during Valentine’s Event – which replaces Call to Arms for the same effect with a reduced cost of 200 mana (rather than Call to Arms’ 400).

What should I do with all these Hearts, you will ask? You will be able to spend them on upgrades, of course. For the duration of Valentine’s Event, Heart upgrades for assistants, mana regeneration, max mana, production bonus from gems and production bonus from royal exchanges will be available to purchase at a progressively increasing cost, much like the current Ruby upgrades. In addition, every 100 Heart upgrades purchased you will be awarded a free Ruby.

As usual, there will be Quests and Feats to unlock: you will be able to find every information you need in the Events panel in game! Note: Event Feat requirements will no longer be hidden before you unlock them.

2015 Edit

Christmas Event
Dec 16 2015 Hello Everyone!
Christmas is coming! The races of Realm Grinder will soon feel the benevolent (or malevolent. Or totally indifferent.) aura of Christmas. Make sure to prepare yourself for the new Event coming in the next days!
The Christmas Event will be starting on Dec 21st 2015, 1.01 PM UTC and will end on Jan 5th 2016, 12.59 PM UTC
It will be much longer and much more complex than the previous one, featuring brand new mechanics for you to enjoy. Let’s start with a general explanation of how this and future Events will work:
  • You will be able to unlock multiple Feats, a special kind of secret trophies which can only be unlocked during their respective Event. Feats may have any kind of requirement and you will have to discover what you need to do by yourself.
  • When an Event starts, you will be assigned several Quests. Quests are missions that, just like Feats, can be completed only during their respective Event, but they are only based on event-specific mechanics and you will know exactly what you have to do. Also unlike Feats, completing Quest stages will award a permanent bonus which will stack with Quest bonuses from future Events, so players who participate in all our Events will be rewarded with a greater cumulative bonus.
  • You’ll be able to check and manage all your Event-related stuff in the new Events panel, within the Trophy tab.

As for the Christmas Event specifically, you will be able to collect Snowballs and Christmas Presents.

  • Snowballs are a new special currency which will allow you to purchase Christmas upgrades and complete Christmas Feats and Quests. They will appear on a random location of the game screen and you simply have to click to collect them, then wait for another Snowball to appear. Or, you can let them grow bigger over time if you are idle or offline – up to a maximum size of 360 Snowballs!
  • Christmas Presents are instead awarded once per day during the Event and contain a surprise for you :). They will also be involved in Feats and Quests, so make sure to check in regularly for not missing them!
Thanksgiving Season Event
Nov 24 2015 Hello Everyone!
Starting from 26th 1:01 PM UTC to 30th 12:59 PM UTC (click on the links to see the time in your timezone) we will run a Thanksgiving Event, first of its kind in Realm Grinder!
Given that it’s the first Season Event we ever introduce in the game, we are still trying and evaluating how to work things out to give the best possible experience to the players. This time, it will be extremely simple both in requirements and content, but it will still be enjoyable and useful for those who love our game and wish to participate in its growth.
The main features of the event will be a new trophy for everyone who logs in during the season and a Shop Sale with these discounts:
  • 50% discount on Gift of the Heroes.
  • 25% discount on all Timewarps and Gem Conversion.

The trophy will also unlock a new unique upgrade which will increase your production by 25%, but only for the duration of the Thanksgiving Season.

In the future, event mechanics and quality will be greatly improved as we have always did with every feature of the game. We have plans to add a specific panel for event-based Feats, separated from the trophy list, and all of them will unlock specific features related to their respective event. Players who miss this event will not be hindered in their progress as soon as the event is over.

We hope you will have fun enjoy Realm Grinding more than ever :)

Offline vs Idle vs Active Play & Autoclickers Edit

Read
Jul 7 2015
We have been reading the forums in the last few days and we have seen concern about differences in the offline vs idle vs active play, issues with the endgame progress and the importance of autoclickers. We wanted to share our thoughts about the situations and our plans for the future.
First and foremost, we find that the difference between offline and active is not much one of playstyle, but a faction balance issue. All the comparisons were made between druids’ triplecast and offline mode – obviously the difference is huge. However, when you compare it to other factions, suddenly it looks much more balanced, although still a bit off. That is the reason behind the recent druid nerf. You will find that druids are still quite strong, now they are just a bit more in line with the alternatives. The introduction of Priority and Contingency autocasting should also help reducing the gap between idle and active play, the latter being still the most powerful playstyle as we always intended it to be.
We also have more plans to balance offline and online production – they will be carried on to the next expansion, which will include another batch of prestige factions, this time stacking unto already existing factions, maintaining their existing bonuses while adding much more powerful unique upgrades. The endgame will be developed much more than the previous expansion with even more compelling replayability options.
We will keep adding upgrades and trophies periodically as we have always done and keep an eye on the status of game balancing while listening to our community. We will always be open to both praise and criticism and we are reading your feedback and suggestions regularly – keep up the good work!

A final note about autoclickers

We have recently read some complaints about them, however we still feel that the decision is ultimately taken by each player individually, as long as they know that we didn’t and will never balance the game around hundreds or thousands clicks per second, therefore it will feel much shorter and much less balanced than intended.
