Re: Shieldgen leveling in HCO - any tricks or tips?

30 turns of shieldgen leveling aren't necessary usually (at least from my hco/hcb/hct AT experience). 20 turns are enough. Also consider using stringozzi serpent and tobiko marble soda to kill high-level monsters here. And keep your muscle low.

NightBird's HCNP DB (Wallaby) 4/722 :)

Goal was 4/sub750 HCNP DB. Finished as 4/722 HCNP DB - 17 turns faster than fastest previous HCNP 4-dayer (beaten-up 1..2 times; 1 turn wasted in frat house; 2+ turns wasted in ballroom) :) Leaderboard: http://195.70.211.9/files/4_722_HCNP_DB_16sep2010.png KolDB: http://195.70.211.9/files/koldb_16se...
