If you get only 1, definitely clover. Either way, yea...

Mostly not going to repeat stuff lost said here, so that too -- Also, realized that I'd forgotten to use the Fax machine for a Ghost, forcing me to do that on Day 2.

Re: Caldyy 5/983 DB DitR

Thanks for the feedback guys! The loudest advice I think so far is to switch up my familiars. So Volleybal, Sombrero, Leprechaun and Fairy? My worry is that I won't get to put on enough weight on them because I don't have +fam wt skills yet. But I'll see what I can do. I'll incorporate the fairy at...

Re: Pewt's 2/445 DitR PM Wallaby run

Congrats! Spent a turn in the pirate's cove to burn off my invisibility potion, then to giant's castle with +combat% (but not an irresistibility potion) to burn wheel delay, then +noncombat% afterwards. Hmm, I usually do +non-combat% during castle delay to get the non-delayed non-combats in the que...

Re: Caldyy 5/983 DB DitR

I actually disagree with using NPZR chem sets so early on when there are a lot of other major things to work on. If you aren't switching familiars for the current quest, then grouping quests together to make good use of the +combat and -combat potions probably won't happen. I would suggest not usin...

Re: Caldyy 5/983 DB DitR

First off, great work on your sub-ronin run! Haven't read the other feedback yet, so there's probably some overlap. This is certainly not comprehensive, although it highlights a fair amount. -- I strongly suggest pulling an NPZR kit if you are willing to spend the 40ish thousand meat it costs. It's ...

Well, that went... a lot better than expected! Woo, I guess.

Re: Pewt's DitR PM Wallaby run (targeting 2/4xx)

Crap, Cuirass is 30ML today. This'll be interesting. Probably going to need to pull a bit of powerleveling... oh well. Wish I'd've heard about the possible level 9 revamp a day earlier, so I could've had 50ML both days. Hopefully it's late or something and I can run a hairshirt run on the 16th & 17t...

Pewt's 2/445 DitR PM Wallaby run

This was kind of started at the last minute; I expected to be running on the 15th or 16th to the 16th or 17th respectively, but rumour is the level 9 revamp comes then. Cuirass will only be 40ML (EDIT: 30) tomorrow, and I had to pull spangly mariachi pants to fairy, but that's life. Thanks to TE/Lol...

Re: JeffV's DitR <10 Skill HCNP TT - Prepping, comments welc

In those cases, the chance for slimeling's pickpocket (which is independent of the droprate for the item) can really help. The droprate of the item IS relevant (as it is for pickpocket). It basically gives you a second die roll for getting the item, with a slight difference that only the slimeling'...

Re: Bobba Fetta's SCNP AT (Vole) run DitR 4/827

Okay, feedback (probably some overlap on stuff that has been said before/in chat): -You may want to consider pulling an NPZR Chemistry Set if you are willing to use a 40k meat consumable. It's very run-changing, doubly so since you lack combat modifier perms. [22-31] Tavern Cellar [25,21,59] +> [30]...

Re: Bobba Fetta's SCNP AT (Vole) run DitR

I definitely think the barracks is the best route for you since you are really, really lacking for +item% right now (as I said earlier). As for the bum cheek, it's not something you want to go out of your way to get, but if you can get one while unlocking the guild (and lack a parrot) it's better th...

Re: Bobba Fetta's SCNP AT (Vole) run DitR

Try to get a bum cheek to drop in order to avoid the need of stench resistance for the bat hole. Preferably just buy a parrot if you can afford the 500,000 meat, but this is definitely better than nothing. Take some prismatic wads or something to utilize the 3 spleen I wasted today. Leaving that sp...

- I wasn't planning on using the slimeling much at all. Scarecrow for items, RP for starfishing at the same time I get GG tokens. There are some really crappy gear drop rates (such as the dwarves in Itznotyerzitz Mine) where boosting your items to ridiculous levels still doesn't give you an even so...

As a general rule you want to pick whatever degrassi sign applies to your mainstat (in basically any path), so it looks like you're set.

Re: PaladinWhite's HCNP DB vole run (29 skills) - prepping

You should pick up a Fancypants Scarecrow next time you're buying Mr Items. It's an amazing familiar (especially in hardcore) and quite cheap on the mall for an IotM.

I'm not a hardcore player so I can't comment on much, but a few things: -Swasbuckling pants is great on scarecrow if you need a potato (at 20lb, it is a 60lb potato/30lb fairy). Double-Ice or BRICKO pants are pretty good leprechauns for nuns (+ Greatest American Pants in softcore). Those are the onl...
