Learning logs from a 4/899 HCHR

Post by Pookierawr » Sun Sep 14, 2014 8:37 pm

General purpose of this was to post so people with far better knowledge could give me pointers. Also, first time trying this log thing, so I apologize for the crap formatting.

*EDIT* Profile: http://bumcheekcity.com/kol/profile.php?u=pookierawr
Notable familiars:
Grill
Happy Medium
Reanimator (first run with him)
Slimeling (first run with him)
Nanorhino (which I usually forget to use)

General goals: Consistent 4 days, ideally looking at getting turncount to ~800 so I can start doing 3 day.
I will say, there are plenty of mistakes, and I am occasionally all over the place with my turns.
NEW Sauceror Hardcore not defined ASCENSION STARTED 20140910
------------------------------

This log was created by the Ascension Log Visualizer 3.7.0.
The basic idea and the format of this parser have been borrowed from the AFH MafiaLog Parser by VladimirPootin and QuantumNightmare.


Start: 3 Milk, 2 Aqua
Rain Man, Rainy Day
Lightning Strike
Ball Lightning
Riding the Lightning

After dominating HR combat with the lightning rod, I decided to try saucepanic and forgo the rod. I couldn't handle combat and until I improve my combat suite, I'm gonna just run the rod for -4 turns a run.

Code: Select all

I don't know if it's just superstition. But I like to drop a turn or two on the poop deck then come back to it after.
Accidentally beat up by a stormcow in here.
Did hidden park and relocated janitors. Macheted/opened all the zones.

General learnings/stuff I know I did wrong.
I suck at maintaining water level, and usually end up with way more rain skill items than I need. This is mostly due to me getting to the end of a day and pumping out rain/thunder with my remaining amount.
I suck at food. Lots of wasted time/unoptimal food.
11 combats worth of beaten up.

Any comments would be awesome!

The first thing I have to say is that the AFH skill checker is pretty out of date, so I don't know if you have (for example) Sauce Maven.

Do you really need to get Liver of Steel? It costs you a decent amount of turns (47 by my count). My consumption plans generates well over 850 adventures in a 3 day using type 69 (although I play HCNP), so I'd think they would be applicable to yours in 4 days. The only struggle I have is getting to 6 in time to get wads to eat hi meins on day 1. Every other day is easy. Given HR, you can probably grab wad equipment floating by early into the run more easily.

Of course, I focus all of my summons and garden on turngen, simply because I'm always trying to reach 3 days instead of using them to cut turns on a 4 day run.

EDIT: I take pilsners for turngen, while you took AED.

Liver was definitely something I'm unsure of.

47 turns was a particularly bad liver. I think the current run I'm doing took me 36. Going with the assumption of a 4 dayer, that would give me 15 more turns of booze. With happy medium level booze (my booze is usually smiths + ice tea + VIP drinks + medium drinks) that's 63.75 turns.

If I can get down to a 3 day, that gives me 42.5 which means, probably worthwhile just to skip it. At this point I'm just nervous about my ability to three day.

Two questions I have:
#1 - Is it worth saving 3 days of the garden for the frost flower (for nuns + filthworms)
#2 - If I'm going to reasonably try for 3 days, would it be worthwhile getting the spleen fam

For #2, I guess it depends on what you define as worth. To be strictly optimal, you probably need some sort of spleen familiar (grim brother, I would guess). It is always better to have more, rather than fewer, tools at your disposal. However, it is a pretty huge meatsink for not a huge gain. I love having my spleen familiars, and wish I had more, but am not willing to spend the meat on it.

For #1, I guess that depends. On a strictly turn cutting measure, you should obviously wait until day 3 to pull the garden. I find the extra turns on Day 1 and Day 2 to be helpful in getting to Hi Meins for more turn gen, and Milk earlier, but I suppose it depends on your turngen plan and goal.

One thing I've found to be exceedingly helpful is to just outline your consumption plans before hand. I use a spreadsheet (here) to map my consumption out. This gives me clear goals while I'm playing, and makes it so choosing what to eat is a nonfactor.

I also try to hit level 9 day 1, but that is through lots of ML.

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 can get the lantern for item drops. Use the first semi rare for distilled fortified wine if you need it for your consumption plan, or use it to get the KGE uniform. For the second (I usually only get two, the second is the inhaler). And on the subject of the KGE uniform, there's no reason to get both the KGE uniform and the harem girl outfit. Adventure in the Knob kitchen with the KGE outfit on for three pieces of the knob cake, bake the cake and it will let you get in the throne room while wearing the KGE outfit.

A few general things before I get into specifics. You want to set the ballroom song much much earlier then you're doing it. I spend most of my first 100 turns getting the song set. It makes the spooky forest, the tavern, the friars and one part of the crypt go much faster. I don't personally think skipping the first floor is the way to go. I'd rather use my wink on a ninja assassin day one. Doing the first floor also gives you decent places to adventure so you can put off the friars until the song gets set.

"A few turns here and there to start delay in Knob, unlocked guild." This makes me think you might not completely understand how delay works. If I'm mistaken, I apologize, but I'll explain it in case I'm not. 11 turns of delay in the outskirts means you have to spend 11 turns in the outskirts to get the encryption key, not just 11 turns anywhere after your first adventure there. Same goes for the spooky forest, the gallery and the bathroom, you have to spend five turns in that zone to kill the delay off.

My thoughts on the liver thing, don't get it. You don't need it to do three or four day runs, it's pretty much just a waste of turns at a time you're trying to lower turncounts.

You have all three lightning milks that you can start with, there's really no more need to raise the water level, it just works against you. If you need thunder clap, or the thunder shorts, you can get tardigrades in the crypt.

I'll go into specific stuff in the next post.

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 promise you can handle the ml).

Once you had the mosquito, why spend more turns in the forest? Don't spend any more turns in low level zones than you have to. Same goes for Guano junction, don't waste turns there. Clover the first two sonars, then YR a bean bat (I like to wait 100 turns for my first bout of seeing yelling to wear off before I do this, and also make sure to equip the umbrella in your offhand before YRing).

Group zones you need minus combat in together, and use the -combat pool buff in the VIP room to get them done faster. As an example, when you start the second floor, do five turns in the bathroom, five turns in the gallery and finish the bedroom. Then use the pool buff and all your minus combat buffs and finish the gallery, finish the bathroom, finish the spooky temple quest and do the tavern (provided you're drinking a sockdollager prior to the tavern for the prismatic damage to skip the noncombats).

Use olfaction as much as you can. You definitely want to sniff a dairy goat, put off sniffing the dirty lich if you need to. The lich can wait, milk of magnesium can't. You also want to sniff a healer and run +item in the penultimate airship. SGEEAs will let you olfact all kinds of things to speed up quests, especially during the level 11 quest where there are so many good olfaction targets.

You can get basic items (turtle totems and saucepans and the like) by using chewing gum on a string, getting them from the forest costs you turns.

You should be able to use a rainman fax to fax in a blooper to olfact. You're better off doing that then faxing in two gaudy keys. Also faxing in baa'bur'aan to get stone wool is a better fax than a gaudy key, especially since you can get a guitar to drop from the key zone if you get lucky.

If you're running 100 ml, you only need one monstrous boiler to make the bomb. Just in general, run more ml :p. Instead of hunting a boiler, hunt the monsters that drop the wine and the blasting powder (SGEEAs make this possible). Racecar bob is another good olfaction target, because the "I love me" drop is dependent on fighting a certain number of dudes in that zone.

You are definitely close to a three day run once you tighten up on where you're spending turns and work out a consumption plan, this was a pretty solid run. If you're interested, I posted a three day run on reddit (http://www.reddit.com/r/kol/comments/2f ... _days_694/) that might help you tighten some stuff up a bit. (fair warning, i skipped the first floor and didn't eat hi meins, both of which I advised you to do earlier :)).

I definitely don't plan much of it. One of the issues I kinda run into and should probably plan out if I actually want 3 days.

For delays - I definitely do get the "have to spend x turns here". I usually think like, hey I need 2 or 3 more fights til level blah, I know I have to burn delay here so I'll just spend those two or three here.

Goblin quest - I wasn't sure which actually ended up being faster. I usually run out of things to spend my semi-rares on so I get KGE out of habit at some point. This is another thing I should probably plan out as well. What do you guys think is faster, KGE + cake for king and pet buffing spray. Or, harem + the pet buffing booze for NS?

As far as semi-rares. 800 turns is ~4 to 5 semi-rares. I imagine planning these is another thing that is useful. The only ones I really worry about at the moment are eyedrops and micks. Although I usually try to grab Baa'baa'buran, KGE and Scented Oil along the way.

The SGEEA to get rid of olfact I had no idea about. Same with prismatic damage in the tavern, what is that?

As far as grouping things, I've seen this posted here, and I've tried to start doing it a bit more (combining VIP -combat for forest, friars, and crypt). The sequencing/grouping still seems weird to me. Something I really need to figure out.

In Heavy Rains, the harem outfit can be washed away, but the guard outfit from the semirare cannot (because the base drop rate on those is 100%). That's a strong incentive to go that route.

You shouldn't need scented massage oils for the shadow, especially since you have funkslinging. You can get healing items from the war shop (5 gauze garters will do). Use +150% init to guarantee the jump (as long as you aren't running +ML, which would increase how much you need) and it becomes easier. Having higher maximum HP (and starting at full HP of course) makes it easier also.

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.
