ok! as much as I hate that answer, it also helps a super lot xD certainly helps put my priorities in order, at least! honestly, I kinda suck at straight paragon runs, mostly cuz I get bored and twitchy and a lotta things say they’re only supposed to last like 30-40 mins? but by that time i’ve only got like… 70 paragon worth? which i think has a lot more to do with the kitten scientists not having really good priority definitions and me not having the patience to sit and baby it closely for half an hour at a time, so. for now, I think 2-3 day long challenge runs that happen to get me TCs, relics, paragon, and challenge bonuses are probably going to be it for me for the rest of the month, at least xD

thank you so much for the help tho! seriously. I don’t really feel like I understand how to do the thing, but at the same time I understand the how-to-get-there part much better, and realize just how far away I am from that, so I’m no longer so antsy about it xD tbf… I don’t play most idle games I get into for more than about two months or so, because after a certain point you stop having things to do. I am now on month 5 of this game, and not even vaguely bored with it, so I’m kinda delighted with the new recognition of just how much farther I still have left to go before I can even really call myself “mid game”

yay! <3

so… long answer made short. I am so not ready for that xD I haven’t actually seen more than 20ish void in a single game. I managed to complete an energy challenge (once, and with great suffering!) but I’m sitting here looking at what you answered me with and it’s like trying to figure out a language that just… isn’t english in any variant xD so I gather I need to keep an eye out for paradox theory and void space. are these also things that need to be bought every single run? while I do use kitten scientists, I only use it on workshop, bonfire, religion, and trade tabs, so any chrono anything would be done manually, and honestly, with how easily distracted I am… <<’ not very quickly.

As far as asking about chronospheres goes, at this point in time, I think I’m more worried about how many I should gather per run, before I let the run reset, because right now a single 450 paragon run is still taking me a day and a half, what with restarting from zero materials. theoretically, if they each do 1.5%, then getting 67 per run would let me keep all materials from every run, at which point, if I use that as my reset metric, would mean that my resources will simply continue to build. So, assuming that’s correct, once I can reach that comfortably, I’d probably have some void and TCs and relics built up, as well, at which point delving into chrono-whatsits should be easier, and will make more sense when I can actually see for myself what happens when I click the button.

am I at least correct with this? >>’ thank you so much for the help! <3


chronosurge help?
so I've been tentatively figuring all this chrono whatsit out with a lot of help from the wiki and google. but I am completely lost on the chronosurge option. particularly how you're supposed to be able to restart it immediately on the next run? I know the wiki says it needs 750 void to purchase it, but it doesn't say anything about pre-reqs, so does it just show up when I have the void and flux? and the thing that raises your max flux, if I'm understanding it correctly, is part of the chrono purchases, which reset every run, so if you have more than the max stocked up as long as you don't have it turned on, you won't lose the points? so basically, if i'm understanding it right, chronospheres, (with the minimum of resources coming with), void, TCs, and relics would all need to be pretty well stocked up before this becomes even vaguely pertinent? because right now I'm still at a level where I *can* get relic stations... but it takes me 3 rl days to get there ^^; and I think void also resets? so would chronospheres bring back the void and unobtanium and other such things as well? (or did I just accidentally spend all my void without noticing? >>') if I'm not totally off the mark here, then how many chronospheres per run would I really want to have as an easy grab before I start considering this set up? at the moment I'm kinda playing with some of the easier challenges, and using them as paragon grabs as well. if it matters, I've currently got almost 2k burned paragon and just over 700 regular, and I've been resetting every time I feel like I hit a wall, which is netting me around 400-450 paragon a run.... thanks much!~
