I just finished the Offering to the Guardians...

Spoiler (click to reveal)
...and I skipped past the last 3 Guardian cards when I saw what reaching the end would entail. Did anyone honestly grind to get the 60 experience points required to win? How long did that take?

Even in my 15+ hour win on Voracious Goddess, I don't think I ever earned more than 20.

I have. I coupled this curse with the Black Chest.

It didn't take that long because I sacrificed a lot of food to the idol beneath the cliff that goes from pined forest to the jungle, which nets you 3 XP/food.
It still took a while because I focused on levelling up rather than wasting XP to the Guardians.
When you know where to get XP fast though it's not that long. Remember, Knowledge is Power, and Gold Hunts are helpful in that particular case.


I'm playing the Curse again as part of my actual challenge but haven't taken care of it yet.

I also have, playing together with Dark Chest and Bloody Hunt. On its own, it's a drag.

It helps if you pick characters that let you farm XP quickly, like Keelan.

We skipped the last card that requires you to get 20xp (if I recall correctly). We were pretty bored of the curse by then. We understood what to do when we drew the last card and just confirmed by checking the end location. I guess we could have died on our way there, but we just wanted to be done with it. In total I think we spent about 15 hours on the curse.

It's not just 60 XP, it's all 7 curses. Well. I'm glad you told me.

That's a rather cheap and disappoiting ending, too. But I found the clue to be extremely clear as to where you had to go.

I did... not going to retry that curse until

I stumble upon the right end point doing other curses
. I too was pretty underwhelmed by that curse and thought the end spot seemed fishy.. but oh well.

Funny because I spent 21 with something like 5 to spare in my first 3 hours on my current curse. I left the first area with 13 XP already.
Granted I'm playing with the Bloody Hunt but still...

My group and I decided we wanted to never pray twice at the same idol. As we only played VG before, it took us a lot of backtracking to find everything. Clearly, the XP has never been a problem for us during this curse.

It took us between 14 and 15 hours total and it was immensely satisfying. It felt as if it was the way it was intended to be played.

Just finished this curse today, and yes we did get all the XP needed, and yes it did feel like a long drag. I think I'd have rather there was only one that required 15XP.

We did cheat once, though, quite near the end when we drew a couple of cards from the discard pile (the first and only time on the game) and turned up a curse (having already used our 777). I just couldn't imagine wanting to start again, so we ignored it that once.

I liked the last part of following the clue in order to decide where to jump, and it was quite fun to just wander the continent, but just went on too long doing the same sort of things. I think if it had been necessary to visit different idols it would have been more fun, but as it was I think we only ever visited 2 of them.
