In this RPG, you play as the healer, who has some very rude party members who don’t understand why you’re in their party, don’t give you any gold they gather from killing monsters and get very angry when you let them die… AKA: You have only one job and that is keeping them alive. They will not work well together either, always attack different monsters and even get angry when you suggest that they focus on the same enemy.
I have played “World of Warcraft” for years and always played the healer and have always enjoyed playing the support role. I never really had that kind of experience outside an MMO, because most of the time in singleplayer games you don’t play the support role. This game is very unique and I liked it so much. The group you’re supporting in this game feels so much like a noob group who is doing their first dungeon (Deadmines for the insiders under us) and have no clue how to make it easier on the tank and healer.
You’ll find a lot of (dark) humor in this game. The developer just released a new patch with censor mode which may make it a bit more kids friendly, I haven’t checked that out myself, since I completed the game on the same day that patch released.
The game can be a bit hard and you have to walk back to the chapel if you ever want to reset your skill tree. I sometimes had to switch a spell in a specific boss battle, but for most of the time this was my spell setup:
Super Heal All – for the upgrades I focused on the regen abilities
Super Heal – for the upgrades I had all the passives which helped out so much as long as this spell was equipped
Remedy – I didn’t use upgrades in this spell
Meditation – I got a few points into regen mana faster when this spell was active
As accessories for my healer, the “fire bracelet” was the most useful, because it would damage all 4 party members a little bit, which was the right timing to use “Super Heal All” in combination with the regen upgrades. Don’t be afraid to try out different weapons and accessories on boss fights if you have a hard time.
You’ll get most of the achievements for playing the game and exploring the map. There are 4 achievements for different endings: luckily the game saves just before the end boss and you just have to reload your save to make a different choice. There is one grindy achievement and that is for completing your inventory. A lot of those items are randomly given after an encounter, but you don’t get loot after every encounter. It was still very doable though.
