    Opinions wanted on two of my dungeons!

    Hey, it's been a while since they were implemented but I was curious as to what you guys thought of the last couple of dungeons that I got into the game. I'll post my names I have for them (I'm terrible at naming things xD) and a screenshot of each down below instead of me describing them too much c:

    The Crowned Jewel



    The Regal Tower



    Any feedback would be appreciated, I hope you guys have had a chance to at least go through them once or twice by now.

    And yes I know the Crowned Jewel is one block too high :'c

    Going to be honest but when I see the Crowned Jewel I do not feel that pleased. I just find the dungeon to be a bit confusing in the sense that it is a maze. It feels like it puts you in the centre but then places the bosses in all different directions instead of a single path. I will often find myself wandering about just trying to find the big boss to leave.

    The Regal Tower on the other hand is probably my favourite 3 star dungeon in that biome. We have had tower dungeons before but this one feels a lot more open on the way up. I simply jump between the boss areas on my way up. A nice quick trip through three bosses which puts you in a perfect spot to fly to the next area.

    Both are pleasing in design though I can not comment on the colour choices. The underwater idea is nice but at the same Trove has the most bland oceans I have seen in a game so it does not do a whole lot for me. The tower we have seen before but I do like how this one is designed as it feels less cramped and has decent fighting spots as well.

    I don't know if it helps but the layout of the Crowned Jewel is super basic once you understand something that probably isn't that obvious, the red crystal side always points to the boss and the adjacent areas are always the mini bosses. Again it might be because I made the thing but I clear it super quick just knowing that, clearing the mini bosses and then swooping down to the boss below through the water. With this one I was experimenting with a less linear layout that is still predictable and to an extent maybe I failed but with the decoration/coloring I tried to hint at where things were at all times. I’m actually pretty curious if that helps you at all or if I should stay clear of obscure pathing like that in the future xD


    Glad you like the regal tower as a whole, I love designing towers and I made the other one in the dragonfire peaks and I feel like I failed on that one a bit with it being way too cramp, with the regal tower I made sure to open it up on the inside to hopefully have better encounters. I’m still striking a balance with fighting areas, I don’t want everything to be super flat but I understand that having too much in terms of obstacles is annoying, I think I have a few areas in my Crowned Jewel that aren’t entirely flat that work but with the regal tower I gave a lot of flat space to fight in I think.

    But yeah, thanks so far for the feedback, always curious as to what people think of my designs once they make it in game xD

    I don't see them very often because of where they're located but I like them. They're very easy to clear and are pleasing to the eye. The Regal Tower reminded me of another dungeon similar to it, but this one is more spacious and easier to navigate through which is nice.

    Yeah, the tower might remind you of the lava tower I made, they're both pretty different in a lot of respects but I do love designing vertical spaces in general c:

    Lately I've been focusing on leveling in the prime worlds to get eclipse keys so I've been able to run into them more often so that's been nice but it can be hard to find in elemental worlds (or impossible lol).

    I LOVE the tower, but as said before, the underwater dungeon is very confusing, i do appreciate the tip you gave earlier, hopefully that'll make finding the boss a whole lot easier.

    Thanks

    Let me know if you get the chance to run into it again if it makes more sense now with that in mind c:

    The Crowned Jewel

    It's a mess right now, you don't know where to go(i will try that tip you mentioned but still ), 'most' people when they see that dungeon we just jump into the water and rush to the 3 star boss down at the bottom.

    The dungeon does look cool tho

    The tower one is really nice ^.^

    Regal Tower is currently my favorite to come across in both rush and solo play. I both like the ease of access to bosses as well as the overall design. I totally stopped and explored all the platforms and looked around the first time I came across it.
