i have played this game for months, completed everything, strongly involved in the discord community, worked with the devs reporting bugs and issues and providing feedback, edited a large portion of the wiki, was a part of the closed alpha for the controller version of this game (which was the precursor to the console launch), and also hacked and modded the game extensively looking for potential exploits and generally just having fun messing around.

i finally got completely tired of it after pretty much running out of things to do. before this i was extremely dedicated to gamerscore and it was rare to see me playing anything that did not award xbox achievements. it only seems appropriate that i shall return from my journey into the Steam, bearing gifts of knowledge and wisdom for the trueachievement community.

if you have any questions about anything regarding this game, feel free to ask here. also suggested to read my intro post regarding achievements and the launch week:

Looking at the Achievement list, is this reallya 5000 hour completion like people say? What do you assume looking at that Gold Achievement? :P

actually e40 gold is not that much. the current "softcap" is e49, which is when you no longer have any upgrades to earn from levelling. they raise the softcap occassionally by adding in new upgrades.

what seems like more of a time consuming one would be the 72 variants. there are currently only 35 base adventures across the 3 permanent campaigns, with 34 free plays, and 58 different variants available. each event (every 3 weeks) there are 6 more variants to do. after two events that will be 70 variants, and i expect a content update soon which generally bring a minimum of two variants.

that means you will have to wait a month or two before that achievement is even possible at all. however i think it is very unlikely for someone to complete everything that fast.

also you will unlock two event champs per event, plus one in the timegate between events. that works out to about 3 months to unlock the 9 event champs.

5000 hours would be 7 months of running the game straight. i mean if you didn't play efficiently, it could take that long. but as the game progresses they make it easier and easier to do older stuff. assuming they don't add any new achievements to the console versions you can always stop for some time and come back after an update. that's how i got the last clicker heroes achievement (after they added transcending, the meta-reset).

Can you bring over stuff from the steam version? I think I bought something for it around when it came out, but never went back.

no they have always been pretty firm on their stance of no intentions to include any sort of cross-platform progress, ever since tablet release.

Any idea if they will change our free play to not have the dialog stuff to speed it up?

It's there. I thought it was glitched too. But after you clear the first mission in a new location, it should show the blessings as an option.

same thing happened to me in helm, the 3rd campaign. but after a restart the blessings appeared. let me ask, I assume you have all opened the console chests and we all get the same stuff. we should have two time gate pieces today, but I noticed I had zero before opening today's. after opening I had 1, but then started a new adventure and it went back to 0. just wanted to compare with other users so I can give good feedback to the devs. there seems to be no timegate interface in this version yet, and there should be one opening in 6 days on the older platforms, so I hope it is working by then. :)

with gems buy silvers at first, until you get at least all white gear, then buy gold so you can get a guaranteed blue each time, and work towards getting purple gear. if you open 9 chests without getting a purple gear, you are guaranteed one in the 10th, so eventually you can get all purple for the core champs.

for favor, the general guideline is to buy blessings when they only cost 1% of your unspent favor, and not to have over 10% spent total.

the option to skip dialogue during Free Play exists on the other platforms, not sure why it didn't make it into this release. i would guess it will be with one of the first few updates, but they haven't said anything directly.

EDIT: talked to the devs, and they fixed the time gate thing. so time gates should be showing up on the map now and pieces should be tracking correctly.

I purchased a gold chest for 500 gems in the shop "Sweet Frickin Loot" but did not recieve the golden epic card for bruenor, just the golden chest.

Has anyone else purchased it or know if it should be instant?

you only get the GE from the 3 Chest bundles (any chest cash purchases of $5 USD or more). it shows the contents of each bundle when you view them. see pic for comparison:

EDIT: if you re-read, unfortunately the Sweet Frickin Loot says: "buy a gold chest BUNDLE"

well... $10 for champs with no gear, is really not that great. they will be unlocked over time in a few different ways. probably deekin would be the best if i had to just pick one. the normal gold chests can be bought with gems. the event/weekend chest bundles are probably the best value, since they include GEs and shinies, and are limited in number when earned from the event itself.

a golden epic (GE) will upgrade the card right to purple (epic), but also being Golden makes it double the bonus as well. some GE are from the events, some are from the weekend deals. so far the weekend deals have not repeated, but the same event bundles are available again when the champ is randomly chosen as the daily sale, or after opening a time gate for that champ for 7 days.

what i would do on pc, if i was considering buying something, is to get a bundle for an event champ i know i will almost always use. then to decide between the $5 or $10, i would look at how many of the champs 6 gear items are "useful".

for example someone who is only a buffer but has items that increase their own damage (not useful). if there are a lot of useful items, you might want to get the bundle that also guarantees a shiny. otherwise, just the GE, because there's more chance for the shiny to land on something that will make no difference.

see more about how gear works at:
https://idle-champions.wikia.com/wiki/Equipment
https://idle-champions.wikia.com/wiki/Chests
https://idlechampions.gamepedia.com/Gear

EDIT:
another user mentioned the founder's pack is a good deal and a good first purchase. I believe CNE has said that will remain at current price as a permanent "on sale" item, so no rush to decide on that. currently there may be some issues with that working on xbox correctly though:

also before buying familiars it's worth considering how much it will actually help to have another auto-clicker. they are nice to have, and come with some good potions, but not necessary. depends on how actively (or not) you play. having more familiars attacking enemies at once will do different things:
