phase 1/3 is the awoken phase?
Yep. When the Grandmas appear. You still get many Golden and a few Wrath Cookies there. So if you are activly playing, you get wrinklers + many frenzys.
3 more prisms till I can reset x.x gonna take all damn day

I finally have so many cookies that I have an e+ in my total cookies for all time D: oh noes what have I done
I'd stopped playing this a few weeks ago, had gotten to the stage where I was only getting 1 AntiMatter Converter a day, and resetting wasn't making a noticable difference, and then I see this thread is up again, so pop it back open and turns out even though i'd saved it the cookies site had remembered my progress, so still had 6Qi+ to burn, so got most of the unlocks (admittedly wasted some on the new season switching mechanic without realising) and brought up 107 Prisms off the bat!
So now sat at:
7000 Heavenly Chips
460 Golden Cookies
776 Wrigglers Popped
and 86 Reindeer Found
If I reset now I'll be at 9396 Heavenly Chips... Might wait until 9400 and reset - round numbers ftw!
I remember spending all day trying to get chips and only ending up with like, 300 or so. I restarted earlier today, and I've got 2,000 more than I started with. Plus three times as many cookies already, at about the same building count. Lesson: First phase of Grandmapocalypse is best way to get up fast. The wigglers return so many more cookies this way, because you get frenzies a lot. The limited amount of "bad" cookies is a small price to pay when I break a wiggler and get 400 quintillion cookies.
But realistically this new prism update increased your baking speed by at least 30-40 times. Prisms themselves give you about 80% of your total income, which is raw 400% increase, but what's more important your earn heavenly chips 5 times faster, allowing you to increase your cooking production insanely fast. And the more heavenly chips you have the faster your make them thus increasing your speed even more.
Considering all that 200 buildings does not sound as insane as it was.
I wonder if someone with considerable amount of chips already started his way to 200 prisms. I'm currently sitting at 36k and have 160 prisms. I plan to reset the game around 50k and wonder if it will be sufficient.
My guess is somewhere in the neighborhood of 500k HCs before you even consider shooting for 200 prisms.
But I think that you won't have to wait that long. There is 0.2x building price buff happening from time to time, which means that you need to save just 100 sextilion cookies.
I bought 10 prisms the last time it happened and I think that after ~160 prisms it's the only reasonable way to upgrade them.
On the plus side, getting Heavenly Chips is really easy now. As long as you leave Grandmapocalyse in its first phase, and click golden cookies. I went to bed with it running, woke up, and was getting 1 quintillion per wriggler popped. Still though, the prices seem really inflated at this point, and it still takes way too long to get anything.
So, after a session of 352 hours I'm currently sitting at 69.3T cps, and just hit my 150th time machine. Going to get 8 more Antimatter condensers and then consider resetting to the sum of about 25k heavenly chips.
Screw this game
