- Dig locations in World 1 seem to have been nerfed, yielding only chests containing 5 or 20 baubles where they used to produce 30 or 40. The ending chest of World 1-1 and 1-2 yielded only a continue coin instead of a Bauble Bubble in normal mode.
- I used up the 5 free continue coins I got in the mail, trying to get through Infantile Mode in World 2.
- Even in that mode, I got a little taste of arbitrary death, what with the accidental slips into rushing rapids (“Help, I’ve fallen and can’t get up!”) and sampling a dart trap sequence on purpose (since presumably some day I might try normal mode.)
- At 0 coins and 0 lives left, near the start of World 2-3, my rainbow ended at a frozen ice wall with an NPC telling me my candle was too weak. A shopkeeper nearby sold a torch for 400 baubles.
I logged out in disgust.
I just couldn’t face the grind tonight.
Grind baubles, grind continue coins, grind for this and that to buy such-and-such and unlock whatever. *sigh*
I lost about 100% magic find from the patch too. So that’s a lot of blues and greens to grind and salvage.
Don’t even talk to me about crafting to 500.
This whole update feels like someone just shifted the goal posts and chucked them a lot further away.
