Does Veteran Get Harder?
« on: October 02, 2015, 10:47:14 AM »
The reason why I got the mod was because I thought vanilla veteran was too frustrating with enemies who could one-shot you to death. I have the opposite problem with veteran synergies as the game is just too damn easy now. Does it get harder later on or should I really switch to Elite difficulty?
I'm about 30 percent through act one as the Outlander and enemies can barely damage me.

Synergies is balanced towars Elite difficulty. Whether you prefer Elite or Veteran is just a matter of taste and easiness.

Normal difficulty is very very easy.
Veteran difficulty is average
Elite difficulty is a challenge

Thankyou for the reply, buddy! Elite it is then.
Will start later on today, looking forward to a sizable challenge!

One question.
Is hardcore mode worth it or are there enemies who can one-shot kill you too frequently?

Oh, and I've noticed there is a dungeon in the first town you get to(realm of Discord) but the enemies are noticably difficult. Is this just a grind to get you up to scratch with levelling up your character?

Never-mind, I figured it all out.

Just finished the Corrupted Crypt Mission. Its funny as the big boss is a doodle to put down using the outlander as her bow can easily take him down from a distance. I lured him away from any other enemies and put an end to him rather quickly.
Then I decided to explore the rest of this level. My god, those uniques in the exact same dungeon are bloody annoying!!
I didn't died but I had to bail to the upper floor more than a couple of times. Luckily for me, I caught some decent fish and made my doggie into a huge troll who took care of business for me. I sniped those mages while he distracted them. They still turned on me pretty quick though. Its kinda hard as they shoot magic at you but I manged to wear them down. I just wish there was a big treasure chest for my ordeal but sadly there wasn't. :-(
