Omri's HCB DB Wallaby (4/715)

I finished this run last Saturday, so I don't know how much I'll remember with 100% accuracy, but LotsOfPhil wanted a log, so here you go! My tower was: 1st Gate: Gremlin Juice Tower 1: razor-sharp can lid Tower 2: leftovers of indeterminate origin Tower 3: frigid ninja stars Tower 4: disease Tower ...

Re: 5 day hcb runs take 2.

Ah, yeah, I don't think I had immaculate seasoning back then, so that wasn't too much of an option for me :P The meat and polka pops are definitely very nice, I'll admit. You do get a *ton* more MP from banderstasis though. I just did a kind of test run in my sauce lead-in to work out kinks in my pl...

Re: 5 day hcb runs take 2.

Max weight bander for more runaways plus having tons of turns of buffs saved up are worth getting the cookbook IMO. I believe I did pretty much exactly what Fred did for my first turns on day 1 - 10 in the sewer, bats, sewer 'til 6, then friars with the cookbook. The cookbook also saves a lot of MP ...

Re: 5 day hcb runs take 2.

Also: How many turns of sewerlevelling do you need for liver in ~140 turns, considering that you'd need to hit L6 in ~70-80 turns? I'm thinking that 20 turns in the sewers should do me (I hope), considering that I shouldn't need the swill so don't need to do any quests bar opening of the knob. 20 i...

Re: Raccoon's thread of ethical dilemmas

Haha, I just read that article yesterday. I disagreed with some of the particulars mentioned, but I did appreciate some of the ideas. I definitely agree with pushing kids to do things they don't like, because, as mentioned in the article, "nothing is fun until you're good at it". Once they practice ...
