HC IotM priority?

Post by Omri » Thu Dec 27, 2012 11:17 pm

Say a certain somebody started casually playing again on a brand new character for the thrill of ascending from nothing, and gained some meat from a combination of Crimbo farming and luck in the game-that-shall-not-be-named. Then say that said person is way out of touch with the speed game since quests got all revamped and new IotMs have been released. Then say that said person would like some tips on what IotMs to get with said mini-meat-windfall. That's where you come in ;)

I was looking at the scarecrow and the stomping boots. How is the scarecrow typically used? I've seen a lot of ascensions with heavy use of it, and it looks like it's hatrack-esque. Fax/YR for spangly sombrero and pants, and use pants on scarecrow, I'd guess? And I suppose the awesome drink + skiff does make dragon teeth better than peppermint (though that parasol looks pretty cool, and the I read something suggesting the crook could be awesome for filthworms)?

Upon some people's suggestions in /clan, I'm thinking I might try HC Avatar of Boris runs for a bit since they sound fun for lowskill (and different!), and it was suggested I get Boris' Helm and the Camp Scout Backpack.

On another note, is it possible to HC Perm multiple skills per ascension if you save up enough Karma? I quit ascending before that particular revamp.

Yep! You just need many karmas.

Yeah, Spangly on the pantsrack and your head, with other minor uses like a frilly skirt or somesuch for runs like Classy.

Outside of HCO, you want skeletons. In HCO, Peppermints win with all these lovely parasols. Crooks are just a pain in the arse with a 10% droprate gland.

Wow. I would have thought Clip Art would be on top due to its great versatility.

I am also a little surprised to see the scarecrow on top - even before getting the fax or YR access which seem to usually power it.
