Watch Thor 2 Online In addition to the einherjer, you can also unlock special allies to help you out. Fandrall, Volstagg, Sif, Baldur, and even Loki can be recruited to support you. Like Thor, they have special abilities that you can use by tapping an icon, and they are considerably more powerful than an einherjer. Suitably, the consequence of them falling in battle is far greater than a simple einherjer. If they fall during a stage, they are gone for the rest of the stage, and even worse, they'll need time off to recover before you can use them again. Some missions require certain allies, and if that particular one is injured, you'll have to wait out the timer, unless you want to spend some Uru. And by Uru, Gameloft means money.
Thor: The Dark World has a whopping three currencies, and they all feel premium to a certain degree. Runes are the most common currency, earned when you clear stages, though only in any reasonable amount when you clear a stage goal for the first time. Runes are used to level up Thor's allies and einherjer, and to buy and level up new costumes. It takes a lot of runes to keep levels and equipment where they need to be, and you're going to run into a wall almost immediately. You can grind stages to stock up on them, but when you're trying to save up 50,000 runes for the first costume unlock and you're only earning 1,000 for re-running a stage, well, that kind of sucks. A reminder: this is the most common currency.
The second currency is ISO-008, which is kind of the go-to premium currency for Marvel FTP games. Well, it's been demoted here. ISO-008 is used to level up Thor's abilities and stats, and to unlock new powers. You'll earn it the first time you finish stage goals, and only then. This currency oddly didn't feel as scarce as the runes, simply because there isn't as much that you need to spend it on. Of course, unlike runes, it's a finite resource, so if you run out and you have no other goals to clear, you're kind of out of luck.
Finally, there's Uru, which is the game's real premium currency, and the only one you can directly purchase. Uru is used for all the usual stuff premium currency is used for. You can kill timers with it, continue mid-stage, unlock things early, and exchange it for the other two currencies. It's also the only way to get new hammers. Some of the stage goals are connected to using certain hammers, which is extremely dirty pool, since the game generously gives you not a single Uru to start with and only rewards it to you in insultingly minimal quantities for clearing achievements.
To be fair, you can progress in the game without clearing every stage goal. There are points where you need to have enough stars, earned by clearing stage goals, to proceed, but the bar is low enough to miss some goals and still pass. Missing stage goals means missing out on runes, though, and without enough runes to keep your levels up, you'll eventually hit a wall and have to go back and grind. What makes the grinding worse is that the stages themselves aren't really interesting enough to merit replays. You're basically doing the same thing in every level, using very similar tactics, sometimes on the exact same layout. It's nice that the game has four different backdrops for the action, but when just doing each stage once feels repetitive after a short period of time, pushing the player to grind is not a good way to curry favor.
