I like the tension of an almost lost battle. There is nothing more exciting in this game like this. That’s why I stick to HC mode. I just can’t change to non HC mode because it lacks that tension.
That’s why I would like the devs to give this mode some more love.
Maybe do something about the drop rates of legendaries. Than again I find it cool that an item that’s supposed to be very rare, is actually rare. But I played almost 90 hrs and opened maybe over 5 of those special chests. They contained nothing really good. Expacially after beating Alkamos on HC veteran I felt such a big pleasure because I was sure I wouldn’t survive. And the loot was meh.
Also there are cases where it’s not your fault that you died. Being blocked by a monster when wandering on the acid/aether ground for example. Someone on steam said that resistances have no effect on those grounds. I didn’t know that before.
I was super prepared with high resistences on my way to the next skeleton key boss and then I died this way.
Maybe some special ability to not lose one of your favorite items you had equipped even after death would be cool. For a high price or for something that’s difficult to get. And maybe limited for one item.
Or better better markings of locations on the map. I tend to forget some places. Could be some item too that improves the distance of revealing some important spots on the map. Something like a compass
Another thing I would like to see is the possibility of automatically collecting scrap, just like iron bits.
I’m playing without any expansions btw. If there is already something new for HC mode in an expansion I couldn’t know.
Anyway the game is great, but I feel like I need a break for now.
