Hey everyone! Recently someone asked me “Why would you delay making Willpower when it will hurt you in Endless Abyss?” and so I decided to write a short post to answer that in case it is also interesting or useful for other players.
I have a very unclear relationship with Willpowers 🙂
COSMOS Knight generally follows a patient rational path of playing. So when Willpowers came out the most important question that I had to ask myself and which I always recommend to others is “What can they do for me?”. This “selfish” question is a guide to picking the best Willpower for your specific character and way of playing.
You see, each Willpower, just like Eudaemons or Sylphs, has it’s own purpose (or advantages / disadvantages). So one must look at each one (see my comparison article) and ask that question to each one of them. And if you are not able to find an answer then this means that it is not the right one for you.
So one answer to the question of this Q&A is none of them are right for me (i.e. my specific character and my way of playing).
This is not the only answer though. There is a second reason which has to do with resources. Except big cashers most people should normally have limited resources. Maxing something out is not so easy in Wartune – it requires a lot of items. So I have to think smart where I want to invest my resources and it is better to wait if you are hesitating then rush and possibly make a bad mistake.
Another benefit of waiting (if waiting is not damaging your weekly activity in any significant way) is that you can plan smarter depending on what Patch is coming to update Wartune for example. Originally only 2 Willpowers came. At that time already I communicated that probably more will be released, so there was a good reason to wait and see if your resources were limited or if you were not sure about the 2 that came out.
Soon another Wartune Patch is coming and it could bring some new changes. My character (COSMOS Knight) is in the position where he can complete all his weekly tasks in a satisfactory way with his current setup, so I don’t see the need to “urgently” invest lots of resources into Willpower.
On the down side I could probably climb 2-3 extra levels in the Endless Abyss. Ignoring the skill books, the main loss is the Will Gears for those 2-3 theoretical levels. For me this is an acceptable amount of loss, because investing all those Will Gears and other Eudaemon / Willpower items into the “wrong” Willpower and later deciding to use another Willpower (or Eudaemon) would be very unpleasant for my character.
