Verdigris97's BM AT 13/1481 Comments/Advice welcome!

Post by Verdigris97 » Tue Nov 16, 2010 11:56 am

Edit: TL;DR even with many mistakes along the way, still hit the AT subboard for an extra karma. Two or three of the big mistakes, bundled together, would have cut at least a day and about 50 turns. Grrr.

I've only done a kittycore run (and a slow one at that), and now my goal is to keep pace with salti's guide, substituting new mechanics where appropriate, of course (e.g., tavern revamp). I have all the demon names except the recent one from the dig.

Any and all help is appreciated. I have only a vague idea about resource management for BM, and I think I'm going to get into money vs. skills trouble in the early days.

Goal: finish with a reasonable daycount (certainly before Crimbo), and learn about BM.

NEW Accordion Thief ASCENSION STARTED 20101116

This log was created by the Ascension Log Visualizer 3.2.0.
The basic idea and the format of this parser have been borrowed from the AFH MafiaLog Parser by VladimirPootin and QuantumNightmare.

Turns out I hate day 1 in ANY path!

You don't mention what you bought, but you're going to want to buy Pride as soon as you can afford it if you didn't buy it today. It's better than a BFV, and generally only a hair more expensive.

If you can't afford to both eat to fullness and drink, I think it's better to go to the barrels for booze and buy hell food, rather than doing imported beer for drunkeness and leaving fullness unused. Barrels aren't really a great deal, but they're better than nothing.

One place where I break from Salti's guide is that I don't think non-myst classes should be spending time in the kitchen. The consumables there drop infrequently enough and are crummy enough that you barely come out ahead and may come out behind. I think it's better to spend time in the Haiku dungeon, which has several things you need in the long term (fairy and bugbear stuff).

You spent nine adventures in the barrel full of barrels and then drank 4 mad train wine and some imported beer; I assume you ran into consumption level requirements. Eating hell food helps out a lot with this, because it's mondo stats. It's not crazy to eat four chicken sandwiches day one. (Typically after you get the BM meat adventure in the woods.)

Also, it's not important to comment on every single thing you do, but because meat is BM's main resource, it helps if you note when you buy skills. (I'm assuming you bought either Pride of Madrigal today, since you ended with not enough meat to eat and don't look like you had any non-beer expenses.) Are you autoselling random drops? In BM, especially on the first few days, it's important to sell off anything you're not going to eat, wear, drink, or throw at a tower monster.

Ah, good point. I got Pride very early, and Envy before the end of the day. Edited to reflect this.

I went to the barrels for the money. Hmm. The underworld food was too expensive to get near the beginning of the day, and now it would be difficult to make up the stat loss, I think. (Maybe not?)

That is an excellent point. I kept thinking I should hit haiku, but I also wanted to fill some stomach (and failed). I clearly came out behind in the kitchen. Another fail point: I neglected to use the styx pixie buff today, even though I knew I needed to. I picked it up before roll, so I can use it tomorrow (hella smooth).

Yep, autoselling everything except for the basic stuff from the sewer so I don't get repeats later. Like I said, I got both pride and envy, but I have not gotten madrigal yet.

So how do you diverge from salti's guide on day 2? I'm looking forward to making more progress after roll tonight.

Thanks for the comments, Les!

Sloth is a sort of unusual choice; generally you want your initiative to be as high as possible as a moxie class, because getting the jump is effectively +item thanks to pickpocket, and while the DR is nice, especially early on, it sort of fades in value as the run progresses. Getting sloth also increases the costs of other skills you want later.

I'm not sure what you're doing at Fernswarthy's; as an AT, you're going to spend zero turns cocktailcrafting and ~12 turns cooking, so you don't make an in-a-box. If you need a place to spend turns to level, you should be looking for a bugbear outfit if you don't have one or doing the billiards room or pixels or something, depending on your level.

You don't mention lucre, but you should start thinking about it; ideally you want to grab it in a place where you want to be anyway that isn't the knoll (because the knoll bounty really sucks). Sniffing fruit golems is actually turngenny enough in the average case that it's worth it even if you have to blow a full forty turns getting the lucre to do it, but it's obviously better if you don't.

Why exactly are you trying for lenses? A camera is okay in BM if it falls into your lap for some reason, but there's no super prime targets that I know of; nothing that saves more than a couple of turns. (An astronomer maybe, and that's only if you can't olfact them,)

General practice is to space lime-hunting out over a day break to run the friar's buff the whole time, but if that's not convenient it's not a big deal. (It's, like, half a lime's worth of difference.)

Mixing only costs a turn (and requires a kit as opposed to a shaker) if you are making ACs or SHCs. In BM, that means never thinking about it unless you are a DB.

So, apparently I'm about a day ahead of salticid's guide (in terms of accomplishing things), but probably only half a day ahead for leveling. Probably because I keep running my fairy when it's not strictly necessary.
===Day 6===
Adventure count at day start: 40
Current meat: 10764

[481-492] Itznotyerzitz Mine [53,41,93]
+> [485] Got miner's helmet
+> [492] Got 7-Foot Dwarven mattock
not sure what's going on with the log here, but at this point I have two helmets. This makes me think of the DoD for the ap wand, which I get, and then realize I should try zapping for my mainstat key instead.
[493-499] Greater-Than Sign [17,21,36]
+> [495] Got plus sign
[500-505] Moxie Vacation [0,0,24]

+> [549] Got filthy corduroys
o> Drank 19 fine wine (38 adventures gained) [0,0,85]
o> Ate 1 fortune cookie (1 adventures gained) [0,0,0]
So I keep forgetting that simple drinks require zero crafting turns. Idiot.

[561] Goatlet [0,0,0]
[562-576] Haunted Library [65,55,107]

Pretty happy with how quickly the goatlet went. Didn't miss a cheese drop, got sabre teeth.

Edit: now nightcap is on here. banking 17 turns

I think Day 8 went pretty well, except that I finished up the castle so quickly I didn't get a D or a G. Of course, it will be easier to come back when my mox is higher, so I guess that works out okay anyway.

Now I just need to get to 11. I'm running a little low on limes (have two left, and a few cherries, still), and I haven't had a decent bounty run yet, so I might have to backup and do those. However, I could just do fruit pies from here on out... Hmm.

Also have my !potions identified, and at least one of each left.

Fruit pies aren't horrible at 2 adv/full. You can also eat random stuff that drops during the level 11 quest, maybe make a fishy fish casserole. If you have any knob or knoll mushrooms left, you can try to zap for a spooky to make a grue egg omelette; barring any high-priority zaps, that's actually a decent use of a zap. Lihc Eye pie is slightly better than fruit pie, if you have any of those lying around. Given that you have a few limes and a few cherries (that's basically enough to fill up for a day), you can probably eat tomorrow just with what you have and maybe some random filler. It's not some kind of nightmare disaster if you're eating fruit pies for a day; the difference between filling up on fruit pies and filling up on KLP is 24 adventures, which is definitely a lot, but which isn't super likely to hurt your daycount.

I am starting to get anxious about the amount of backfarming I'm going to have to do, as I have missed a few tower items along the way, and familiars. (Goat cheese should be quick, but I'm not sure how long it will take to get a potato sprout since I haven't even started the gallery quest yet...)

Potato Sprout doesn't actually have anything to do with the gallery quest as a condition; the conservatory is always open, and you don't need to unlock the gallery or read the right book to trigger the sprout adventure. I think you're in really great shape overall.

Tomorrow I need to finish up the Farm, then bust up some frat boys. I'm wondering if and how I should do gremlins... With high mox, I think I'm going to get my clock cleaned, so I will probably skip it.

At least I already have the star key made, so I really just need to finish the war, and then backfarm for anything I'm missing. (Like the 'D'!)

Gremlins are still something you should do. They save quite a number of turns. Even if it takes a little bit of extra time because you have to kill some of them off or whatever, it still saves something like 50 battlefield turns, or 30ish if you're going to do the arena. I don't think it's really particularly bad as a moxie class, since your moxie still reduces that damage they deal.

Okay, yeah, 30+ turns is worth it. Any particular survival tips? I usually have a bander and saucy salve, so I'm having a hard time figuring out how to do it "naked" as an AT.

Thanks again for all your comments, Les.

I'd hit them down to fairly low health - so that one or two attacks will kill them - and then start using a seal tooth until they give up the item or until you need to kill them to survive. If your wallet can handle it, then you can also use a Doc's healing item every turn, which will get you a few rounds. (The more expensive ones will buy you more rounds, but cost more.)

Thanks, Les, for encouraging me to do the junkyard. Turned out to be pretty easy (I got lucky in two of the zones: first combat was the right gremlin, his first action was the item), and I used your knock-down -> seal tooth idea for each of the others to great success!

Edit: Forgot to mention that I used Harold's Bell on the AMC Gremlin.

Finish up tower and NS tomorrow. With equipment alone I can get mox up to safe levels, so hopefully she won't be too hard. I have four poultices and a massage oil for the shadow, and will have two more oils for the NS.

Well, even though I missed a nice 12-dayer, I still got some subboard karma. 13/1481 puts me right in the middle of the AT board, and I know I could have knocked a day off, and easily ~50 turns. Grrr.
