It's an absolutely beautiful sight to be seen, naturally. I'm horrible at guesstimations (emphasis 'guess') for this sort of thing, but I'd put it at somewhere between one and two inches--not amazingly deep, but also not thin. It's thick enough to weigh branches down on trees and to give that brilliant white coat to everything.
Rather impressive. Of course, I woke up after nine hours of sleep again at two in the afternoon, so I didn't really get to see it at its peak. (Apparently, there was sunlight at some point during the day, though it never got above freezing.)
In Heroes of the Realm news, I went from having 350,000+ gold to being stone-cold broke, recently. Why? Because I was searching for a weapon upgrade for Edith. She had turned Level 20, and was using a L15 staff with a L3 Fire Gem in it. I expected to find a cheap Fire Drake and buy it, get an L3 Fire Gem, and equip it. Instead, I found a massively-expensive Fire Drake.
I knew it'd be a bad deal, and that there'd be much, much cheaper ones, but I hovered over it to see what was inside...and found that it was three L6 Fire Gems. The staff I wanted to buy, with the gem I wanted to buy, only x3 and at double the level for each. Suddenly, that ridiculously-expensive staff seemed well worth the price, so I spent the quarter of a million to buy it.
Combine that with a little other spending here and there, plus getting items in the forge to have gem slots unlocked, and harvesting my resources and needing to start the ore/wheat/mana again (at 4300 each, doing 9 or 12 typically, it adds up), and I lost basically all my gold.
Not to worry, though. Checking in every few hours or so means that I get a ton of gold in a day. That 300,000 took me less than a week to make. Now, it might take me longer to recover my funds this time, since I went on a MASSIVE campaign where I burned through a ton of my excess resources by going to every event area and conquering each level in addition to my normal routine (clearing the 1/2-star levels along with the boss levels until I run out of energy or time), but I'll recover.
It's not making much of a difference in the Champion's League, mind you (still getting massacred), nor is it making a noticeable difference in my normal army, but in spite of that, I think it was an investment well worth the time and gold spent, which will pay off in the long-run.
One of the main things right now I'm doing is getting characters built up gem-wise and equipment-wise. For instance, with one or two exceptions here and there, nearly every character has Ice Gems in their helmets, meaning that the demand for Frost Gems (most of them L5, mind you) is at an all-time high.
In contrast, I keep burning through things to use for an L5 Earth Gem, which I keep getting yet not knowing what to use it for. I'm saving up for an L6 Fire/Wind gem for an upgrade to one of my army heroes, but after that, I won't know what to do for the Wind. (Fire, though, is in high demand as well.)
For Clicker Heroes, I suppose I should mention that I keep on cruising through levels rather rapidly. Worth mentioning is the fact that I actually play Clicker Heroes on two different computers: the laptop I use for blog posts, and the desktop I check in on once a week. You'd THINK this would mean the desktop would be an idle-build and my laptop (which I'm constantly on) would be a click-build, but it's actually the other way around; my desktop game (which is mainly for familial gatherings) is moving towards a click-build.
I've got an ancient lined up there for idling, but that'll be to help boost the 6 days I'm away. I reset that playthrough to get 4 hero souls and am planning to reset it at the same point (99) to get 5 this time. (And the time after that, 6, and so on and so forth, each time getting there faster than the last.)
In contrast, my laptop is my main one, because I've gotten so many energized dark rituals that it'll take me forever to get back to where I currently am at. (579, though I'm about to go further since I have yet to spend my excess of cash.)
