Seasoned Roamer Magenta Posted March 31, 2021 Share Posted March 31, 2021 Yowtch! Sometimes knowing something and experiencing it are two different things. I'm playing Veteran difficulty for the first time. I usually play Normal, but well, there's these medals.... And it's always good to expand your horizons from time to time anyway. I have a Guardian at level 4, with one Fyora at level 6. I got swarmed in Ruined School, so without even thinking, I had the Fyora launch its cone attack. Bad idea. I forgot about friendly fire at higher difficulty levels. At that point, of course, the guardian was in the thick of things and got hit as well. At least I think that's what happened. It was all so fast. Lesson learned. "THINK before launching that aoe attack." To make matters worse, the little guy then went rogue and started attacking my guardian and it was all over. It's clear I have a lot to learn about veteran combat. My thought in having a creation with an aoe attack was to supplement the guardian's lack of it. But this is not helpful if there are very limited circumstances where you can use it. And it seems the risk of it going rogue is higher than I expected. (The fyora was not badly damaged at the time). So based on risk vs reward, I'm thinking I might want to ditch the fyora until the guardian is high enough level to better control. But that leaves me very few options when I am seriously outnumbered, and with leap ability, the thahds are always going to be in your face. Or maybe I should keep the fyora, but with lower endurance so it is lower level and thus easier to control? I had bumped the endurance because I was spending a lot of action points healing instead of fighting. Seems getting the right balance is going to take a little more finesse at this level. Am I thinking on the right track here? Or is there something else I haven't thought of? I'll go ahead and try some things, but I'll also welcome any tips or advice.
