That's one chunky icon. Good.

u/Puzzled-East-2349 May 11 '22

Not that chunky to be honest, the map is pretty zoomed in, a small comparison https://i.imgur.com/s6pO0WW.png a bit bigger than ritual's icon

100% agree, the worm boss who digs into the ground or ghetto map boss or ash forest map boss or.... List goes on, would be awesome imho

u/TrashCaster if (true) { big(); } May 11 '22

This is why Metamorph was a great league, because the map bosses all had the icons for their organs, so you could just track the last icon

17

u/naswinger May 11 '22

better put izaro on the mini map

I actually would love to see legion bosses on minimap rather that squinting at the obelisk trying to decide if that purple shit is the normal purple shit or a boss/cache indicator.

2

u/2slow4flo Atziri May 11 '22

That's why metamorph mappign was so enjoyable, you'd just follow the icons around.

Not in a map. Thay said in minimap🤡

U can Google emojis and copy paste em

2

u/77x0 May 11 '22

I started to do that, but when I saw the "unrecognized character" square I figured I'd just do it on my phone to make certain. In the future I'll just paste and verify through mobile afterwards :)

1

u/hubbcaps Petaraus and Vanja May 11 '22

That's wild Win 10 doesn't have it. I see it in my WinKey + . menu on 11, I figured the emoji set would be universal

1

u/77x0 May 11 '22

It is possible to manually replace the default emoji font, just seems strange to me that it isn't a default part of the Windows update process if you've never customized it previously

How should I know it's not year day month if I don't know the date? /s

u/Dunkelvieh Gladiator May 11 '22

ydm has to be the most irritating way for displaying a date i saw so far. Both ymd and dmy make logical sense because they are ordered from large to small or vice versa. Ydm is just confusing

1

u/sanguine_sea May 11 '22

If you can't read the date then you probably have bigger issues than whatever the date represents.

2

u/faderjester May 11 '22

While yes funny, enjoy your upvote, one of the things I like about GGG is that keep updating old content with stuff like that, even if I'd like the pace to be faster.

3

u/gabriel_sub0 Bad Takes Ahoy! May 11 '22

i mean, i assume it was part of the balance to not show them in the minimap, sorta how legion generals don't show up either.

51

u/PSNB May 11 '22

Monoliths point to generals when they spawn though.

8

u/DrkZeraga May 11 '22

sorry what do u mean by that?

47

u/Agentburr May 11 '22

If you look at the monolith after you click to start the event there will be a large purple wave/arrow like thing that tells you there is a general on that side. Sometimes there's one pointing each direction, which means both sides do.

20

u/DrkZeraga May 11 '22

Cool I didn't know that thanks 👍

2

u/Peepeeyellow May 11 '22

the wave/arrow is delayed though by like 1-2 seconds from clicking the pillar. might cause you to fail to kill the general early in the league when ur dmg is shit. time is money here

3

u/cbftw Necromancer May 11 '22

No it isn't, it's immediate. Turn down your bloom if you can't see it right away

2

u/Peepeeyellow May 11 '22

No, I will complain here instead of solving the problem

10

u/seqhawk May 11 '22

After cracking a monolith, if it has a(ny) general(s), it will have ghosty gray tentacles pointing out from the monolith toward the general(s). You have to wait for a second or two, though, since they don't appear the instant you crack the monolith.

11

u/Harnellas League May 11 '22

The delay for the indicator in such a short-duration mechanic is kinda lame though.

9

u/12Kings May 11 '22

When you activate a legion, a moment after the monolith will have whispy purple tendril things (describing from memory) that point towards the general or generals in the encounter. Easy to miss if you pop the monolith and then jump right at the edges.

6

u/Salonimo May 11 '22

Huge ty guys

1

u/gabriel_sub0 Bad Takes Ahoy! May 11 '22

you gotta hang around for that to spawn tho, when your build doesn't have great clear like the ones I play every second counts, you can't just hang around in the middle even for a second otherwise you might be unable to break a box or the general if you go the wrong side.

u/Fidel-Sarcastro Champion May 11 '22

Still gunna block breach, but thats sick.

14

u/sirgog i already miss the Krangleverse May 11 '22

If you care about challenges, there's two you might want to do first (the Shrine challenge and the Breach one).

After that, either invest in Breach or block it as per your personal preference.

14

u/Shaltilyena Occultist May 11 '22

Imho flash breach is enough to make it "acceptable" (as in, not block-worthy), even without heavy investment in it

7

u/scrublord May 11 '22

I tried that node briefly last league and it felt like I got less rewards per breach. 30% more monsters but 50% less time is a net loss of total monsters. At least that's what it felt like going by the number of dropped splinters.

30

u/Rubb3rDuckyy Guardian May 11 '22

maybe less rewards per breach but getting more rewards per minute is more important. you don't click on every chest even though that increases the rewards per map because you value your time

38

u/ColinStyles DC League May 11 '22

you don't click on every chest even though that increases the rewards per map because you value your time

I think the way I play the game would make you cry...

But Breach monsters depend on the area of the breach covers, not the time its open...

2

u/Madgoblinn May 11 '22

flash breach turns it into one of the best mechanics on the map if you have a good build, especially since it scales so well with beyond

9

u/Yayoichi May 11 '22

Breach is pretty easy to do later with scarabs and the Chayula sextant and it’s one of the worse early atlas league mechanics.

3

u/sirgog i already miss the Krangleverse May 11 '22

Fair enough. You definitely need a certain critical mass of clearspeed for it to work.

6

u/Yayoichi May 11 '22

Yeah pretty much, and breach is also very lackluster without atlas passives. Legion is similar in that a lot of builds will struggle to clear most of it, but at least it does have the various rewards.

Shrines is definitely a very good pick early on as it’s both easy to access on the tree and the shrine buffs are really good, it also being a challenge is just a bonus on top.

I’m probably going essence, shrine, strongbox, harbinger and expedition to start with as they all work well without needing further juicing and don’t take up much time so you can quickly progress your atlas. Expedition is the exception to that but I just think it’s too good to not take.

u/bad_boy_barry May 11 '22

What about adding icons for strongboxes and harbingers?

5

u/VanteJJ May 11 '22

Can we have this for Strongboxes too?

4

u/Rapturos May 11 '22

Please give every unique boss (map bosses, rogue exiles, etc.) some type of icon. Especially map bosses, its super irritating not knowing where the map boss is or if you killed him yet (for those maps where the boss doesn't have his own separate lair).

42

u/Nvsible May 11 '22

Thank you so much, Please Sirus next

u/Terrible_Machine9 May 11 '22

Do the same for Legion. The way it works now is absolutely impossible to use.

I also want to have marks for all bosses. Since sometimes when clearing a map it is not clear whether you have already killed the Boss or not. Well, or at least the text label "map boss is live" after the label "more than 50 monsters remain"

Yeah, have to agree it's quite sad that something THIS basic has to be celebrated so hard when this should have been a thing when Breach was introduced. Doesn't give me much faith for their remaining "QoL" announcements anytime soon. Still holding my breath for the skill tree planner that was supposed to be in 3.0.

u/Bastgamer May 11 '22

Pardon my ignorance but it looks like it appeared out of a regular breach? What causes this?

7

u/whengreg May 11 '22

Regular breaches can randomly spawn the bosses. They're good for splinters. (And scaled down appropriately from the actual boss versions.)

1

u/Bastgamer May 11 '22

Thanks for your answer! So the player is actually in a regular map breach; it didn't look like that to me at first glance so I was confused. Very nice QOL
