Re: harumph's 4/786 HCNP AT run NEED MUCH ADVISE TO IMPROVE!

You're not doing nearly as bad as you think you are. With the level 9 revamp it has become much more difficult to do a 3 day HCNP run. And in a few days we'll have the lvl 10 quest revamp that's supposed to add another 100 turns to each run. To put it in perspective I looked up the fastest HCNP runs...

Re: Class Act: Lets Make a Strategy Thread: HC edition

Thanks for posting this up. It made my TTCA run much easier to deal with once I finally got around to it. Especially since I hadn't ascended since before the lvl 9 revamp.

Re: Lightwolf's "How I 6 day HC Zombie?" - day 3 - input?

I think part of the strategy for a low skill HCz 5-6 day is going to include gallery power leveling on day 2 or 3. Once you max out hunger you have an attack that will kill the gallery monsters easily, as well as a reliable source of good brains. If I hadn't botched my run by forgetting to do a half...

Re: Shadow Tiger SC HCB Vole - Fun Hating Speed Run

The beer lense is so I can fax/arrow/camera a lfm and be done with it. That's spending around 10 turns, plus an early olfaction (you weren't even using a fairy in the brawl?), to get an item that will save 10 turns searching for a LFM later (assuming ballroom song + hound). Or just using a 2nd fax....

Re: Shadow Tiger SC HCB Vole - Fun Hating Speed Run

Ah yes, the 8-bit. Yet Another Thing I Nearly Forgot. The moon leveling thing was really me being lazy and not spending the time one more useful things, like quests.

Shadow Tiger SC HCB Vole - Fun Hating Speed Run

First run for the Fun-Hating Speed Ascension! I'm doing this day by day to try and keep track of my mistakes.

Re: Getch's DitR HCNP TT (in run, please comment)

The gremlins quest is a pain with few skills.

You don't want to stun them because then you won't get the item to sho...
