Hi all,

Has anyone attempted to grade how difficult each nemesis is in increased difficulty mode? We got crushed by Rageborne last night in increased difficulty mode in our first play of the game (and are going back to normal mode), and was wondering what that would be on the difficulty scale so we know when to attempt it again.

I am also curious to know what other people think the advanced difficulty rules are in relation to other nemeses. Our original intention was something of a new game+ where you wouldn't play one on an increased difficulty until you had played through basically all the nemeses or were very comfortable with the game. For a smoother difficulty curve, it's better to just go from one nemesis to another rather than increase the difficulty.

It REEEEALLY depends on your set-up. With Z'hana and Reeve, Increased Horde-Chrone is maybe & 4 when he's an 8 with other mages.

Crooked Mask is a 10 no matter what.
Rageborne I'd say becomes a 4, Carapace Queen also a 4, Blight Lord a 6, Prince I haven't played because he scares me, Wayward I haven't played but he's probably an 8.

It also really depends on the number of players.

If I really want Rageborne to be a threat I either play him with 1 character or Increased + Extinction.
