Re: Seain's HCO S run, 6 days, 515 turns, feedback appreciat

Thanks man, I appreciate the feedback, a lot to think about, and I'll probably have questions later. That 9-704 run was the first oxy run I'd done and the first serious run I'd done (maybe the first I'd done period) since heavy rains, so I don't know that it was an attempt to do anything more than r...

Seain's HCO S run, 6 days, 515 turns, feedback appreciated.

Started out summoning smiths hat, saucepan and a hand in glove. Summoned taffy on and off as I got mana until I got two blue to level the bander with. Energy drinks and a pet sweater for my astral items. From somewhere around turn 25 on I was running Drescher's and Urkels constantly. Day One [0] Asc...

Re: Introductions...

Hello everyone. My name is Paul, I'm 35 and I'm a 911 dispatcher in a small county in Missouri, which is both more boring and more exciting than it sounds. I've been playing KoL off and on since 2007 and have always been interested in having faster runs, so I'm hoping to absorb knowledge from chat a...

Re: Learning logs from a 4/899 HCHR

The noncombats in the tavern cellar can be skipped with +20 of the appropriate elemental damage, a second option is added (burn the crate, freeze the crate etc.) that gets rid of the noncombat without using a turn.

Re: Learning logs from a 4/899 HCHR

My preference is to do the first floor of spooky raven and use the first two rainman faxes to YR a mountain man right off, then olfact the hobo that drops the hobo glove so you can make a hand in glove. Hand in glove is a better use of a lump of coal than a saucepanic is (just get thunderstrike, I p...

Re: Learning logs from a 4/899 HCHR

I'll start by chiming in and saying you need to preplan your consumption. You shouldn't ever be eating hot wings. Also use a lucky lindy for your semi rare counter, instead of fortune cookies, it's the better option. On the topic of semi rares, I don't think the eyedrops are a good choice since you ...

Plan for Day 6 was to get the LFM winked at right away, and then bounce around working on finishing up the level 11 and the Orc Chasm quests. This was an interesting day to play, trying to make the best use of daily buffs and doing the right banish/olfact/zone order for the hidden city, but I still ...

Seain's HCSNS AT (vole) run Finished! 8 days 737 turns.

Hey guys, I'm a returning player (took about a three year break) who was fairly speedy before I left (best run was a 4 day, 828 day HCNP run way back in August 2011) and is looking to get speedy again. I started out shooting for a seven day run, but one big pre run mistake (not changing my induction...

Not a bad day at all. I'll hit level 11 after I use the manual tomorrow, So I'll do that right off and start the Macguffin.

Re: Seain's HCNP AT - 5 days 1078 turns

My thoughts on day one: Using the yellow ray on the 2nd or 3rd turn doesn't strike me as a good idea, at least not until I'm able to eat Ramen on day one. I needed the harem outfit a lot more, not having a veil to do the bats with left me short on meat and places to adventure. I got lucky getting th...

Seain's HCNP AT - 5 days 1078 turns

I posted this on the HCN boards, posting it here to hoping to get some comments/advice/criticism. Hi and thanks for reading. Before I get to the log, let me tell you about a goal that I desperately want to meet, a 5 day HCNP before I hit 20 skills. My fastest run to date is 6/1201, so I really think...
