Levelin up giant's abilities?

Post by McFail » Wed May 22, 2013 11:10 am

How do I level their abilities? I picked up 2 swamp ambassadors with my water giant, but his "swamp" ability stayed level 1? Am I missing something?

Water Giant?
Swamp Ability?
What?

I assume you're talking about the Swamp Giant. You can't level up their basic biome abilities. What do you expect them to do, make a "better" swamp?
When you have a giant selected and hover over an ambassador, it shows you which abilities it's going to upgrade.

Or did you mean the Herd Aspect? When you pick up two Swamp Ambassadors with the Ocean Giant, you gain the level 2 Herd Aspect. If that's not the case for you, that's a bug and you should upload your savegame.

To level up abilities you need to have reached that level yourself by completing developments, e.g. level 2 abilities and aspects are unlocked after you have completed 12 developments.

Hovering over an ability will show what levels are available, if any, and which ambassadors are required to get them.

I think the current implementation of leveling up the giants is too complex (not as in complicated, but as in takes too long). In a 2 hour game you really need to run like hell to get 12 ambassadors just to realize you need more, because you need 3 of EACH ambassador (9 on each giant, what?) to get all the skills maxed - a.k.a. impossible.

This HAVE to be reviewed

You're not supposed to be able to max them all in one game - Each giant can only have 4 ambassadors maximum, so you're forced to specialise slightly: it adds a bit of long-game strategy and variety.

I agree with the above post, as frustrating as it is not to be able to do everything I want. It does add a level of challenge to the game which keeps me coming back and trying new things.

Ouch .. except I pretty much maxed all achievements, and I don't see why return. I would like to see bigger "villagers", huge populations, a real world vast and full of glory. With my "Gods" limited, I don't see how.

I can see how that works in the "campaign", but could at least be changed in free play. If one wants to keep leveling and growing, why not? except 36 ambassadors (9 each) is insane!

This is what I meant. I picked up 2 swamp ambassadors but my herd aspect (which is what I meant by Swamp ability, but I get the confusion :) ) stayed level 1.
