I consider Collections to be a long term project something you do as you're bored or are reaching max inventory.

Squads are your armor in other game. It's where 90% of your level and stats comes from.

I have gotten over 10 skill levels, 200,000 xp for survivors, heros and rare scems and upgrades, upgrades for evolving my characters, weapons, traps and at least 20 lllamas. If it wasn't for collections id probably be half my level.

My co worker hooked me up!  ATM it's only at work but will install tonight at home.  >> FyreOpal. 

I'm still in the tut tho.  I was also advised to NOT add things to collections right away since the people(squads?) can be added to themselves to strengthen them and to use blueprints first.  Mostly add collections if you've got lots of dupes is the way I understand it.

keep the best blueprint, you can collect or recycle the rest! the drops are similar to Diablo 3, the stats are random.

the games gives you a bunch of tokens, save those for legendary/goblin/gremlin llamas.

I agree. It also depends how many specs and heros you want to use and what you need. For example I use a ninja and a soldier so I have worked my butt off to get a good melee weapon and assault rifle, even if I get good other scems I collect them unless they are the highest rank, you get a ton of collection xp for that. But, you have to be committed to certain specs in order to do that, ive collected a couple epic pistols and other things already.

When I started I double checked everything to make sure I didn't need it, the last thing you want to do is ad something to the collection you need. Once I start using things that were all blue I got rid of most of my greens, then I started using the next level and got rid of all of my blues. You really want to check to start off, but the safest way to do it off of the bat is to only collect doubles of things.

I am not sure if I was just super lucky or what but I am pulling in like 50-60 items a day and collecting maybe 10 things as well. I don't recycle unless it has already been collected since recycling doesn't give much these days. Apparently is used to be a lot better.

Also, if you level up anything it is best to retire or recycle it because you get back xp, never collect something that has been leveled unless it has only been leveled a little and the xp you will get from it isnt worth it..

Played for a few hours today. It's a pretty fun game. Still don't really know what I'm doing but it's definitely a good time sink.

Outlander gives an increased loot drop, never played one though.

I haven't even figured out how to explore. I just know how to do missions lol

I'm thinking there's a more open world thing to it, I just haven't found it.

I think you do a couple of tutorial missions, the game doesnt really start until you get your first base, then the map opens up.

Yeah I got my base set up but I still only have the regular missions. Not sure how to just go out into the full world. Unless its only just the small mission maps.

The main map has a fog of war that opens as you level your base, there is no open world only icons on the map that open up. Farming and exploring is done within the missions. There is also a survive the night(s) mode that opens up once you get around level 15.

Ah I see. So I've just avoided exploration for now. I always end up going for the "complete this mission in two days" reward. Which I think may be less because I at most only get silver in all areas.

Can we add everyone's Epic display name to the main post? That way we can add each other to our friends lists.
