Now that I’ve beaten the game, I’m going back through a second time to see how different it feels with a different group. I’ve been rerolling for gold eggs with the first few bits of gold you get from early quests, to see if I can get something fun.
In my first playthrough, I used all the discounted gold eggs in the store and got Archeonis, Leafy, Flamogaru, Prometheo, Snowstag, and Bearfist in the early game, to go along with my Spark and Bluecub. I also got a lot of help from Pyroviper, Georex, Plasmorex, Skywolf, Gigaceros, and Tidalwhale later in the game. Coldheart carried me a LOT throughout the game though, and honestly I think it might have made the game a little TOO easy.
After a few weaker attempts (and a whole lot of Duskhawks), I finally hit the jackpot and got Seadile (x2), Galey, Megalorex, Duskroc, and Gigaceros, to go along my with Brakio and Penguini. Nothing TOO amazing, but definitely respectable. I haven’t decided if I want to pick up Pearex early or hunt for any other starters/hatchlings before I start the game, but I feel like I have a pretty solid start to a fun game. I’m hoping to have as little overlap as possible with my first game, while still getting enough good Arks to beat the game.
So how about you? What was your early-game lineup the first time through? Did anyone else start a second game?
