    crucible length?

    just wondering if anyone has finished the crucible yet and can enlighten me as to how long it would take to finish and whether or not difficulty effects playing it, maybe it would be easier and faster to beat the game on apocalyptic and then play new game plus on easy and do the crucible on that difficulty

    I haven't started the crucible yet because I'm level 28 and I read in the guide that it's best to hit level 30 and then do the crucible on easy difficulty.

    Edit: Forgot to add that you have to play New Game + to unlock the final stage of the crucible which unlocks when you hit level 25. You can only get up to level 22 before having to do NG+. I say just beat the game on apocalyptic difficulty on your first run then play it on normal or easy till 30. Then do the crucible at 30 on easy.

    no offense but still didnt answer my original question which is how long it would take, obviously the easiest method would be new game plus on easy at level 30 with maxed weapons and skills, but how long would that take?

    i beat the game on apocalyptic 1st and ended with a level of 23 i went back on normal i am playing the crucible and you do not need to beat it in one sitting, it saves after every 25 waves and there is a total of 100.. for me to get to wave 50 it took 55 minutes and i stopped there but it gets harder as you progress hope it helps

    thought i heard something about having to beat the crucible in one sitting in order to fight wicked k at the end, maybe im wrong about that, thanks for the info, probably get this in a couple months or so when i have gone through some of the games i havent even started yet, hopefully by then itll be patched so it doesnt freeze anymore

    you know what i actually heard that to but when you exit and come pack you can chose what level you want to be at…i also hear you only have to do all 100 at once for a hammer or some specialty weapon

    Okay for the crucible. It can take as quick as 45 minutes if you're good enough. You don't have to do all 100 waves at once to get the trophy. take breaks the first time through. But you DO HAVE TO do all 100 waves in 1 sitting in order to fight Wicked K. And to get the Platinum you must beat Wicked K.

    Yep you do have to do all 100 waves in one sitting to get Wicked K.
    I can confirm this as I have already beat the Crucible and earned the .
    However with a good character and the right powers like Teleport Slash and Exhume.
    Also with weapons that have health and wrath steal, you can beat the crucible with little to no effort.
    Good luck to all who still need these trophies, but I don't think you'll need it.

    I managed to beat the crucible in 1hr 11min on my first try. The ghouls and birds that steal heath help out a bunch. I kept my distance and used the pistol as much as possible. Its a good strategy to have a high chance of execute also. Let your ghouls do most of the work. After they explode execute who u can. Rinse and repeat and u should be fine.

    You can do it Wave 1-25
    26-50
    51-75
    76-100

    Get the special weapon/armor and even exit. You will syill get the trophy and super hammer.

    In order to fight Wicked K and get Bravo Old Chap you must do Wave 1-100 in one sitting.
