HCEd - Gordito's failed 2-day attempt - Please critique

Post by gordito » Sun Apr 12, 2015 11:38 pm

Tried to improve on my previous 2-day HCEd run. Failed. Have all IotMs, full skills and imbues. Went Wallaby and took Astral Pilses and belt.

(constructive) critique welcomed!

Code: Select all

===Day 1===

[0] Ascension Start [0,0,0]
     +> [0] Got ten-leaf clover, ten-leaf clover
     -> Turn [0] none

Screwed up right at the outset by not OOZE-ing or florist friaring before my first CI fight. Lost some stats. I also used one chateau rest to get to level 2. This is my usual strategy for running OOZE and florist from turn 1 in CI.


[1-15] The Secret Government Laboratory [359,935,395]
     => Level 2 (Turn 1)! (4/8/3)
     => Level 3 (Turn 1)! (4/8/3)

     => Level 5 (Turn 7)! (12/20/13)
     => Level 6 (Turn 14)! (18/29/18)

     +> [25] Got ten-leaf clover

The beginning of me trying to get not just fun funds for Dinsey face paint, but also the +meat items, forgetting that they are only relevant when fighting tourists, because Gordito reading hard.  (Sigh)

Gordito: I only had 11 turns left at this point. Yes, with still-beating spleen that makes 14, but I needed to level to 13 as well (129 mainstat needed), which meant that at least 17 turns were necessary... to my ability to generate 14... :(  Yes, my math is likely wrong... but close enough.

It's very difficult to critique an un-commented log, and even more difficult when you don't include the post-run stuff like how many turns you spent in each zone.

Of course it is! Sorry! I've tried to address it now... hopefully I did. It's not as readable as some of the other annotated logs on here, but I checked it and I think it works. Sorry to you and anyone else who wasted time trying to help me before this...

I think you're pretty close to what I did, but got a bit unlucky in a few zones.

Personally, I don't hit up CI immediately because I don't need to. I usually spend 3-4 turns in the Outskirts getting to level 3, then hit up CI. I've also found that I just can't handle OOZE immediately in CI either, but it's not an issue. Spending one of your Chateau naps early probably negates some of those gains anyway.

In short: good luck, you're close!
