Other than getting beat up, is there any reason to play Primarch Difficulty? Any special reward like better gear, unlocked missions, or anything else?
I only just started fooling around with DOW2, and have been playing at Primarch until the first "real" mission -- to kill Orc Boss Gutrencher, one of the two orc bosses you get after the tutorials.
After a couple of tries, I finally got to the point where I can clear the map without any squad leaders going unconscious, unless I get hit by a grenade (not the 5-second countdown German-style big grenades, but the tiny ones that detonate on impact and so I have no warning and can't move my squads; and they wipe a whole squad all of a sudden). Once chancy move and my perfect Saviour record is ruined.
Then I get to the boss and it takes something like 30 minutes of just running circles around him, avoiding his attacks. It felt cheap and boring.
Are all bosses going to be this boring / tedious? I'm thinking that if they are, then I'm going to switch to Sergeant for x1 enemy damage instead of x4.5 from Primarch (I read in another post that the damage multiple is the difference) just to move things along.
