Thanks, I knew about those 3 levels, but are some NPCs within each level significantly better than others ?There are three standard levels for the NPCs: Novice, Proficient and Expert.
I think at the moment you have access only to Novice NPCs, the others will become available once you level up your rank.
After the standard levels you will eventually be able to challenge the founders who have their own special levels (and decks).
Just check this:
Interesting. I've played only 6 games so far, and lost one, and by a significant margin too. In that one, the NPC opponent selected 2 decks I had no access to, which from your description suggests he was Proficient level. That's puzzling me a bit, because I got that match via the ToT challenge vendors in Gonfalon Bay, and I assumed I'd be matched against a Novice level NPC.Necrotech_Master wrote: »the difficulty of the npc does not really change a whole lot, just what kind of decks they have access to
novice only can pick from the 4 base ones
proficient can select the 4 base + i think hunding and rahjin
expert can select all 8 original decks
the "founders" can all select the original 8 decks, but they have "special" versions of the decks which mix and match cards from the various decks, so if they select hlaalu as a patron, the patron is fixed, but their deck may include cards from any of the 8 original decks
the "master" they added in firesong for the druids, has the same rules as the founders, but may also be able to pick the druid deck too, i only played him once so dont know for sure, but i would assume he has access to the druid deck
