So to preface, this is probably one of my favorite games I’ve played in a very long time. I got this game like 4 days ago and I have 50 hours of play time.
The only real thing that truly makes me just rage quit is the lack of ability to find higher level gems. I understand they’re supposed to be rare, and I’ve followed any and all advice to find enough, but when you consider you need 20 rough topaz approximately to make a single topaz hammer, and in 3 hours of searching you find four pieces of rough topaz and wear out your silver hammers, so you then have to go back and farm more silver to make more hammers, which the entire silver hammer making process can take about 45 minutes from start to finish, and then go mine more coal and have to keep replacing everything you’re using to try and find these gems and trying to save the only titanium hammer you can manage to get enough titanium to make, it just becomes frustrating.
50 hours in I feel like I shouldn’t have to take 3 steps backwards to ATTEMPT to take a half step forward.
Idk I just feel like there should be some more efficient way to progress without joining some larger settlement or having a bunch of friends to play with.
And I DEFINITELY think that finding gems should be easier through mining than fighting T3/4 cuttlegrunks or whatever, which are SO hard.
Other than that, I love you guys and this game
