Re: SB's 3/763 HCEd - 13 skills

I wouldn't worry about postponing the goatlet, eventually you'll have the skills in time to speed it up and in the meantime making leaderboard probably isn't feasible anyway, & you're already at 3 days so it won't speed things up there really either. As far as lashes go, due to lash mechanics I beli...

Re: SB's 3/763 HCEd - 13 skills

Looking at your location totals, obviously the first thing you can cut out is a lot of time in the government lab. Also 21 turns in A-boo is pretty steep--you might considering clovering for some clues, and for whatever extra you need you can definitely afford to spare a few talismans of ren. Goatle...

Re: Hotdeth's 3/659 HC 19 skill Ed

Looks like you took 18 turns for snowmen which isn't too terrible, especially if you were only running +20%C--I believe you can expect them to take 12-13 turns at +20 and 13-14 at +25. You can definitely cut a bunch of turns by spending less time in CI, pushing back some spleen upgrades to day 2 if ...

Re: Introductions...

hi I'm in HCN; I've been playing for about 6 years (on various accounts); my current goals are to acquire a slimeling, work on my collector score & perms, continue to farm lucre, and most importantly, get a bronze button this season (hopefully without buying CI) it seems like a lot of people appreci...

Re: Kal 3/752 HC Ed, 6 Skill (tips?)

Thanks for the praise + feedback. You mentioned you wanted some suggestions on how to speed up bridge building and a better second SR target, well here is my current thought that I have been toying with my last two ascensions. Instead of using your first 3 clovers on getting the ore for mountain que...

Re: Kal 3/752 HC Ed, 6 Skill (tips?)

How was this compared to your first Ed run? well my first run was... not so good, it was 5/1059. I didn't get my organs bought very quickly, I wasted a skill point in the curses tree, I didn't realize the strength of the talismans yet, and generally I just didn't know what the best "Ed" way to hand...

Re: Hotdeth's 5/813 Life interrupted HC 3 skill Ed

I only see one semirare, so tracking those would probably help. Also if you're resting that much I think it would make sense to eat a Sleeping Dog early on. What skills did you grab? Where did you use your talismans?

Re: Kal 3/752 HC Ed, 6 Skill (tips?)

Yeah I definitely don't need so much farming from a Ka perspective since I finished with a good amount of advs remaining, so putting off the spleen makes sense--eventually I'll probably plan it out more rigorously. And the reasoning behind not taking the belt was, well, not having the belt, but I'm ...

Kal 3/752 HC Ed, 6 Skill (tips?)

Hey, so I'm relatively new to speed ascension, & my best run prior to Ed was 5/880 or so with no IOTM on a multi, so I was hoping to hit 3 days with Ed. I'm pretty excited to have done so, but I'd like to be able to bring it down even further and possibly make it onto the leaderboard (ideally, also ...
