Re: Effovex SCO AT 4/462 (TdT)

===Day 4=== Adventure count at day start: 7 Current meat: 3614 [/code] So, at the start of the day I realize a) I can make it and b) I can also easily fail. So I decide to plan a bit better today. I make a list of all the "must pulls" for the lair and calculate how many pulls that leaves m...

===Day 3=== Adventure count at day start: 82 Current meat: 1482 [/code] Plan for today: hum, plan for today was pretty vague. I didn't write down a pull list ahead of time, and just went along with it. No clear arrow plan. I think "fax and putty LFM, finish quests and level up" was the who...

Re: infern0's SCNP 2/465

Two turns for the pirate outfit without runaways? That seems insane to me :shock: Edit: finished reading, and that was an amazing run. You did get incredibly good RNG, but despite your claim of "making a ton of mistakes", it appears to me you didn't really make that many, probably fewer th...

Re: Verdigris97's DitR (29? skill) 3/617 SCNP AT Wallaby

Mafia stocks up on combat restoratives automatically, doesn't it? Maybe that's an option you need to set but I don't recall ever doing so. Or maybe it's Bane's auto-recovery script that does that? Anyway mafia always seems to keep me stocked with 4 seltzers or MMJs.

Re: Effovex's DitR3 2/579 AT (29 skills)

Did you actually get the jump much later on in the run? Sometimes I run fusilli for a little bit, then I realize I'm not getting the jump anyway so I stop wasting MP on it. I hadn't really thought of this; looking at the raw logs, I seem to be getting the jump most of the time - I'd estimate over 5...

Re: Seabook DITR III DB Wallaby 4/856

I think 4/856 isn't bad at all for a first speed attempt, and quite impressive without Mr. items or using mafia. Did you do write the log as you went along? That's insane :shock:

Re: Effovex's DitR3 2/579 AT (29 skills)

I was getting 60 substats, or 30 mainstat. Not quite as good, but a regular combat also gives a shot at a dance card, which I wanted to hoard for later. Basically, Curtains wasn't a whole lot better than a regular combat and while it made me level faster, it also would have made my secondary stats l...

Effovex's DitR3 2/579 AT (29 skills)

This is the part where I would normally explain my plan for the run, but unlike my previous softcore attempts where I obsessed for days on end and planned my runs nearly turn by turn, this run I didn't have a whole lot of free time and my planning basically consisted of checking if I could generat...

Greetings, I'm a primarily hardcore player who enjoys the occasional thrill of softcore speed runs. I've been playing KoL for a little over a year. Apart from that, I'm Canadian, and for now my job consists of remedying to computer illiteracy. I speak French and English fluently, and have a degree i...

Re: Effovex's attempted 2-day SCNP (DitR)

You used summer siesta because you didn't have a better way of killing 8-bit monsters, right? No, for the extra stats from the V Mask. I used spring rain from time to time, but overall I found myself having enough MP to maintain my few buffs (phat, aria, leash) This isn't a bad thing to backfarm if...
