So 3H has the "Maddening" difficulty now

Note: Do not post anything spoiler-y without hiding it. Only reason why this is minor spoilers is due to the talk on NG+

Haven’t really touched 3H in a while sadly, but the new difficulty is out for everyone(I believe) and apparently it’s really difficult. Saw something on Twitter and I think it sums it up pretty nicely.

They’ve adjusted how much renown you get from completing a path so you now get 10k instead of 5k before(Not entirely sure if you got 5k previously, but it’s what I heard). This means that Maddening was probably built specifically with NG+ in mind and that you’re going to die a lot regardless. Seen a few people have trouble with just the prologue, lmao.

As an added bonus, apparently the Death Knight is aggroed immediately(Meaning he’s not just going to sit still and let you avoid him the entire fight) in the chapter you get the Creator Sword in. So I hope Lysithea is over-leveled(Or in this case slightly under-leveled) and can still one-shot or get close to one-shoting Death Knight before he kicks your shit in.

Or you can make the big brain plays and not torture yourself with the Maddening difficulty at all. :thinkinglikelukas:

I was worried about this

I enjoy a challenge but Awakening Lunatic was challenging to the point where it just felt like I was torturing myself trying to beat chapter 2 deathless

Hold up, they’re actually taunting us with “But have you tried it without NG+”?

What would even be the easiest path to choose in that situation?

Oh, don’t get me wrong, I’m actually a sadist. Watching you all suffer with this game mode is where I get my kicks!

So they expect us to be able to kill DK without having Dark Spikes on Lysithea (because I’m pretty sure that’s literally impossible by chapter 4)

Is that even possible without extreme luck? Did they even test this difficulty before releasing it?

From what I’ve learned,most of the time,developers don’t test it all the way through,it’s the mentality of:

hey,we got a new toy…

We’ll let ‘em chew on it and see what happens.
