I’ve reached the infamous Episode 52 mission that asks for a level 31 Indominus Rex. My bench is currently sitting comfortably with a level 11 Indominus leading it so obviously getting my Indominus Rex to level 31 would leave it unbalanced. Then I looked that the other missions and realized that if I want to finish all the missions (assuming it ends at episode 55) I will need an Indominus at level 40 and that’s even more unbalancing.
Looking at my bench, I have about 20 dinos that I could get to the equivalent of a level 20 VIP (around 4400 ferocity) giving a deep enough bench to comfortably do my daily missions and get into dominator (if I try hard enough). A level 40 Indominus has about 12,000 ferocity so I’m pretty sure it will considerably bring up the challenge level of my dailies. I could also, once the missio1n is passed, turn it into an indoraptor level 1. That is only 9000 ferocity but still considerably more.
I could prematurely combine some of those dinos to get them into level 30 (around 6700 ferocity) but I fear that will leave me with a very shallow bench and make it challenging to get past the daily missions while I expand it.
My main goal is to finish those missions. That is the internal goal I gave myself when I started playing this game and I believe that waiting for my bench to grow proportionally with a level 1 Indoraptor will take a few months and I’d really like to finish the missions ASAP.
Given this, I’d like to know from those who have more experience with unbalanced benches. Do you think having a single dino be at 9000 ferocity bring the difficulty up to unmanageable for a bench of 4000 ferocity? What about for one with 6000 ferocity?
Any other suggestions?
