Feature Request: Make friend requests cost crowns

Thursday, September 10, 2015 by spiralspy

Things I hate: standing in Haven (or running with randoms) and suddenly *wuuurb*, a yellow star on my mailbox requires my attention. Another friend request, from another dipshit who apparently spends too much time on Facebook and wants to cuddle the world. I just mark the thing as read. That at least prevents the asshole from sending another in case I ignored the first one by accident (gosh, I hate those numbnuts who want to force their "friendship" on you)...

Are orbs doing more harm than good?

If there was a FAQ for Spiral Knights (well, technically, there is), then it's number one question would probably be "where can I find ...

Brainfart of the day

Say ... why can't (junk) accessories be crafted into sprite food? Those little buggers eat anything anyway, so why not (ab)use them as trash cans for stuff no one wants?

Shroud of the Apocrea is back

Wednesday, August 12, 2015 by spiralspy

Logged in, went to Haven, saw the event decoration. Since there was no patch, it is probably save to assume that the event is the same as last time with no added or changed bits. In which case my old guide should still apply.

Wishlist: Heating slot (unlockable)

Tuesday, July 28, 2015 by spiralspy

Know what I really wanna have? A heating slot. Forget those stupid heat amplifiers. The thing that grinds my gears about the forge system is neither the hunt for rarities nor the amount of time it takes (a handful of firestorm runs takes care of that anyways). No, the thing that pisses me off is that I'm forced to play with sub par gear...

How do you earn 30k?

Thursday, July 16, 2015 by spiralspy

Most vanguards will know this one: do 10 firestorm runs, exchange the boss tokens for a piece of ancient armor and pawn that off to any NPC in the bazar. Easy, straight forward and takes about the better part of the entire afternoon to pull it off. Are there faster alternatives? Sure! Given that....

Seeing stars

Saturday, June 27, 2015 by spiralspy

Well, we got a whopping seven sprite recolors/reskins that need to be leveled and fed. Force feeding a sprite from zero to hero costs somewhere between 2k and 3k mineral units and if you don't happen to have that much on hand you can, of course, buy pet food from the auction house. Speaking of the auction house: who are the idiots morons full retards flooding the AH with stars for 2k cr and less?! Guys, the point of the auction house is not to figure out who can manage to make the smallest profit! Here's the recipe for a shadow star: Two 5* materials of any kind 25 Dark matter 500 cr If you sell your star for 2k cr, then the auction house will take a 200 cr fee if it sells and 250 cr if it doesn't...

Sprite pods and the colorblind (avoid getting scammed)

Thursday, June 25, 2015 by spiralspy

UPDATE: This post is now obsolete. Sprites pods have been patched to include their type in their name. So, we are recoloring sprites now? I got a problem with that! No, it's not that it's yet another reskin promo, but the fact that I'm having a hard time telling the reskins apart! I'm not an artist, I don't have perfect color vision/memory and I'm pretty sure, I'm not the only one with this problem...
