well it was fun at first…
when I was fighting random hatted mobs…
they took no damage from snowballs so they made light work with my fists.
then a meteor dropped.
figured I’d give the snowball fight a try, since y’know, it’s only available on low planets and snowballs are the only thing that does damage. luckily I had pre-collected some ice and had a full smart stack crafted because I was gonna need them.
the embarrassment had gotten up to 9, not sure how/if it affects the loot gained after, but it was pretty tough, even the first round… the snowballs do hardly any damage.
2 more rounds later and getting tougher and tougher… and now there are elites. really? does this thing end?
sure enough I died. (no xp penalty. whoop tee doo, I already had penalty. loot is what i’m after.)
how many red candy canes do you even get from a level 3 meteor anyway? I hardly doubt it’s worth all that trouble.
I think it could be improved with one of:
-more damage from the snowballs
-ability to hit them with fists or slingbows
-each meteorite mob drops a red candy cane (as well as the meteor box)
-ooh! or maybe packing augments into the snowballs for some better damage or straighter trajectory
