I don’t really know if you are serious at all… It took me probably like 30 minutes to think how to respond to this without sounding like an ass and I’m confident I can’t avoid it at all
It seems you checked how to get the punishment shield blueprint in a biome you aren’t feeling comfortable to go in even on 0 cells difficulty… Ok that’s not unheard of, but when you consider the fact that you have probably less than 80% of all the gear unlocked - my opinion is that you kinda overextended for a bit and yet it’s not even close to being one of the hardest blueprints to get. You are complaining it wasn’t handed out to you without any effort or something, cuz it’s the only one that uses such mechanics to bring some minor extra interest to the biome in the first place.
It’s an alternative biome to the Ramparts when you go through the Promenade of the Condemned… or natural extension to the Prison Depths and my place to go through, 'cuz I find the enemies there to be far more suitable for my play style. It’s an option you aren’t forced to do when you get what you need from it anyway. Same situation with the Clock Tower, where I prefer the Forgotten Sepulcher instead. This is where the metroidvania aspects comes in the game. Gear choices can dictate your biome preferences as well, but I think that’s too advanced planning for now.
I try to see how you can have some complains about any of those things and yet I don’t see any justification. Try to stick to the game if you enjoy it … if you don’t, you are pretty much forcing yourself to something you will probably never like and get good at.
I’ve seen plenty of complains, but not a single one about those things. Try to have fun and adjust to the situations presented to you. There’s plenty of things to learn in this game … especially how to play in certain biomes.
