Mechald's BM AT run (10/1310) (El Dia) (daycount fail)

Post by Mechald » Sun Feb 19, 2012 5:49 pm

El Dia run. I decide not to overthink whether I want El Dia to fall on day 2 or day 3, and just let bounties decide the matter. On day t-2, the bounty is weretacos, which is pretty bad. So I wait. On day t-1, the bounty is half-orc hobos, which is worse, but beggars, choosers, etc. Time to hop the gash.

--Day 1--

My two main goals for today:
(1) Reach level 5, or close enough that I can hit level 5 at the start of tomorrow with brimstone food, because low-level El Dia drinks are lame.
(2) Bank as many turns as possible for tomorrow.

Working backwards from those goals, my biggest concern is getting enough booze to fill my liver. So my quest priorities are mosquito + 1000-meat adventure, Typical Tavern, and Pretentious Artist (rat whiskers = more meat for overpriced beer).

Code: Select all

   -- Autosell pork gems
   -- Eat brimstone chicken sandwich x5 (+22 adv)
   -- Level 3 (Turn 0)
   -- Accept bounty: Sleazy Back Alley
[1] Haiku Dungeon
Hoping for fairies so I can do a 100% baby gravy fairy run, but no dice. Seeing 1 substat gain makes me realize I forgot Pride.

Code: Select all

   -- Buy Pride
[2-14] The Spooky Forest
   -> Get mosquito larva (Turn 9)
   -> Familiar: volleyball (Turn 9)
   -> BM adventure: 1000 meat (Turn 14)
[15-20] The Sleazy Back Alley
   -> Level 4 (Turn 15)
   -> Get pail of pretentious paint (Turn 17)
   -> Steal pants (Turn 20)
Only 1 chunk of hobo gristle, unfortunately. I decide not to spend any more time here today in hopes of getting a better bounty tomorrow.

Code: Select all

   -- Buy Envy
[21-22] Smith rock and roll legend
[23-28] The Haunted Pantry
   -> Get pretentious palette (Turn 28)
[29-33] The Outskirts of Cobb's Knob
   -> Get pretentious paintbrush (Turn 33)
   -- Buy moxious madrigal
[34-41] Typical Tavern Cellar
   -> Turn off faucet (Turn 41)
I'm still 5 moxie away from level 5. The next three areas on my agenda are the haiku dungeon for a gravy boat, the knoll, and the fun house (I'm getting my LEW because I am a wuss). The fun house has the highest ML, so I'm heading there first.

Code: Select all

[42] The "Fun" House
And I promptly fumble myself to death.

Code: Select all

[43-45] Degrassi Knoll
   -> Get tires (Turn 45)
[46-61] The "Fun" House
   -> Get bugbear beanie (Turn 50)
[62] Smith clownskin belt
60 substats from level 5. Two brimstone chicken sandwiches (25-30 substat each) will get me almost there, and I have three moxie weeds that I can use to top up if needed.

Code: Select all

   -- Drink typical tavern swill x3, overpriced beer x5, whiskey sour (+32 adv)
Status:
- Level 4 (18 moxie)

[71-74] The Haunted Pantry
   -> Manor unlock (Turn 74)
[75-80] The Outskirts of Cobb's Knob
   -> Get encryption key (Turn 80)
[81] The Haunted Pantry
   -> Semi-rare: tasty tarts
[82] The "Fun" House
   -> Get golden reeds
[83] Smith squeezebox of the ages
[84] The Outskirts of Cobb's Knob
   -> BM adventure: Minioned
Whoops, forgot to use the map.

Code: Select all

[85-94] Cobb's Knob Kitchens
   -- Styx Pixie buff: Hella Tough
[95-98] Typical Tavern Cellar
   -> Get Baron von Ratsworth's monocle (Turn 98)
I forgot to actually find the Baron's house before using the Styx Pixie buff. Turns out to be harmless error, though -- I OHKO him with moxious maneuver on the first try.

Code: Select all

[99-110] Cobb's Knob Kitchens
   -> Get Corpse Island iced tea (Turn 100)
   -> Get knob mushroom (Turn 110)
   -- Cook pregnant mushroom
I would get an eye-pod at this point, except a baby gravy fairy doesn't stack up well against today's arena familiars. Putting that on the agenda for tomorrow.

Code: Select all

[111-171] Degrassi Knoll
   -> Familiar: baby gravy fairy (Turn 111)
   -> Get frilly skirt (Turn 114)

   -- Eat sausage pizza, overcookie (+11 adv)
   -> Level 6 (Turn 170)
   -> Get filthy lucre (Turn 171)
The Knoll bounty takes obnoxiously long. Also I now have 6 bugbear beanies and 3 bungguards.

Code: Select all

   -- Drink overpriced beer x5 (+10 adv)
[172-175] A Barroom Brawl
   -> Familiar: baby gravy fairy (Turn 172)

   -- Drink Cobb's Knob wurstbrau, overpriced beer (+4 adv)
   -> FARQUAR (Turn 186)
I went to the Harem to get a veil for stench resistance. Since the pants dropped before the veil, I'll be using the Harem route to defeat the King. But I pick up the KGE outfit anyway for dispensary access.

Code: Select all

   -> Defeat Boss Bat (Turn 197)
[198-199] South of the Border
   -> Familiar: baby gravy fairy
   -- Drink Corpse Island iced tea (+21 adv)
Day ends in an unsuccessful attempt to get the SotB meat adventure.

5 corpse drinks total, none of them mainstat. So I'm missing at least a couple nightcaps. But on the plus side, I've finished my early-game setup and am ready to head to the Friars' tomorrow. My buffed moxie is 58, exactly the safe adventuring threshold for the elbow.

Status:
- Level 6 (31 moxie)
- Got: fairy, leprechaun, LEW, bugbear outfit, dispensary access, monocle, 1 lucre

--Day 3--

Today's bounties suck.

Code: Select all

[200-204] The Cake-Shaped Arena
   -> Get eye-pod (Turn 204)
[205-218] The Dark Elbow of the Woods
   -> Familiar: volleyball (Turn 205)
   -> Get eldritch butterknife (Turn 218)
[219-229] The Dark Heart of the Woods
   -> Get box of birthday candles (Turn 229)
[230-244] The Dark Neck of the Woods
   -> Familiar: baby gravy fairy (Turn 230)
   -> Get ruby W (Turn 234)
   -> Familiar: volleyball (Turn 235)
   -> Get dodecagram (Turn 244)
Looking over my options: Can't survive liver quest. Can't survive getting the pirate outfit, and anyway I haven't done any shoring yet. Going to do lime-farming before I need to eat today.

Code: Select all

[245-252] The Daily Dungeon
   -> Get Sneaky Pete's key (Turn 252)
[253] The Outskirts of Cobb's Knob
[254-255] Cobb's Knob Laboratory
   -> Familiar: baby gravy fairy (Turn 254)
   -> Get Cobb's Knob menagerie key (Turn 255)
   -- Drink overpriced beer x14 (+28 adv)
Six turns until my semi-rare. I don't want to waste a trail turn getting the semi-rare. (Already going to be wasting some turns with cooking.) Will do six turns of billiards room first.

Code: Select all

[256-261] The Haunted Billiards Room
   -> Get pool cue (Turn 239)
   -> Familiar: volleyball (Turn 240)
[262] The Outskirts of Cobb's Knob
   -> Semi-rare: Knob Goblin lunchbox

After getting the semi-rare, back to billiards room until chalk runs out.

Code: Select all

[265-285] Cobb's Knob Menagerie, Level 1
   -> Familiar: baby gravy fairy (Turn 265)
   -> Olfact fruit golem (Turn 265)
   -- Get burrito blessing (Turn 265)

   -- Eat Sneaky Pete's key lime pie x3, knob pasty, fortune cookie (+52 adv)
   -- Level 7 (Turn 288)
   -- Drink corpse on the beach (+23 adv)
Hitting level 7 makes me realize a flaw in my planning: I don't have nearly enough meat for loot lyric. I should have gotten a BM meat adventure earlier so that I'd be able to buy it for the second half of my lime hunt.

In any case, I'm banking now so I can finish up my trail turns with tomorrow's burrito blessing.

Status:
- Level 7 (40 moxie)
- Friars' quest complete
- Midway through lime farming
- Need to get liver
- Need to get BM meat adventures: Whitey's, bat hole, SotB
- Banked 75 adventures

--Day 4--

Today's bounties suck again.

Rough outline for today: Finish lime hunting. Beat Goblin King. Get Whitey's Grove meat adventure. (I'm not doing the White Citadel quest, but the BM meat adventure only requires that you unlock the road.) Buy loot lyric. Burn off Maid Disservice in the billiards room and 8-bit realm. Get liver.

Also, I should begin shoring today.

Code: Select all

   -- Get burrito blessing
   -- Styx Pixie buff: Hella Smooth
[289-304] Cobb's Knob Menagerie, Level 1
   -> Get lime x5, cherry x5, orange x7
A total of 10 limes (though I've already eaten 3) and 9 cherries. That may or may not last me until level 11 when I can eat oasis bric-a-brac. I'll have to play by ear.

Code: Select all

[305] Cobb's Knob Harem (Harem Disguise)
   -> Familiar: volleyball

[367-370] The Defiled Alcove
   -> Pickpocket dead guy's watch (Turn 367)
   -> Familiar: volleyball (Turn 368)
Partway through the alcove, it occurs to me that I want -combat, so I should put it off until after setting the ballroom song.

Code: Select all

[371-384] The Defiled Niche
Beaten up by gargantulich.

Code: Select all

[385-387] The Spooky Forest
Let's see. I want -combat for all remaining cyrpt sections (nook = stats). I also want -combat for greater-than sign. So it's bedroom time.

[391-393] Mysticality Vacation
   -> Get tropical orchid
[394-402] The Haunted Bedroom
   -> Get Spookyraven ballroom key (Turn 402)
Flaw in my cunning plan: How am I going to survive the ballroom? My buffed moxie including hair spray is precisely 85. I've already used up my Styx Pixie buff for the day. So I guess it's time to be suboptimal and put it off.

Code: Select all

[403-415] The Defiled Nook
   -> Familiar: baby gravy fairy (Turn 403)
   -> Get evil eye x5
[416-419] The Enormous Greater-Than Sign

[464-477] Itznotyerzitz Mine (mining disguise)
   -- Get chrome crossbow

   -> Get goat cheese x6
[500] The Defiled Nook
   -> Familiar: volleyball
[501] The Defiled Niche
[502-506] The Defiled Alcove
I'm almost big enough to tackle the ballroom. (Or so I think. See below.) But first I take a detour to get some meat to get a wand.

Code: Select all

[507-509] Bat Hole Entryway
   -> BM adventure: +3000 meat (Turn 509)
   -- Drink white lightning (+9 adv)

[524] The Haunted Ballroom
   -> Familiar: volleyball
[525-531] The Obligatory Pirate's Cove
   -> Familiar: baby gravy fairy (Turn 525)
Get beat up twice in the ballroom. 111 moxie + moxious maneuver spam doesn't cut it. In retrospect, I should've farmed the pirate outfit first for the moxie bonus. But I wanted to set the song first to farm the pirate outfit faster. Oh well.

So now I have the pirate outfit but my Styx Pixie buff is gone. And I don't have enough meat for a pirate insult book.

Code: Select all

[532-544] The Defiled Alcove
   -> Familiar: volleyball (Turn 532)
[545] The Haunted Bathroom
[546-550] The Defiled Alcove

   -> Familiar: baby gravy fairy (Turn 551)
[554] The Defiled Alcove
   -> Familiar: volleyball
Rollover is almost here, and in any case I'm too frustrated with today's lack of progress to burn turns, so I decide to just pick up the SotB meat adventure and bank.

Code: Select all

[555-559] South of the Border
   -> Familiar: baby gravy fairy (Turn 555)

   -- Drink knob coffee x2, snifter x2, flute of flat champagne, overpriced beer x8, strawberry daiquiri (+46 adv)
   -- Eat chorizo taco x2 (+4 adv)
Nightcapping with a daiquiri because I might as well save my remaining two corpse drinks until I buy ode.

Status:
- Level 8 (60 moxie)
- 88 turns banked
- Bonerdagon up (lol)
- Pirate outfit acquired

   -> Play noncombat song (Turn 601)
   -> Level 9 (Turn 605)
Just in time for my semi-rare. Heading there a bit early because there's delay on the adding machine anyway.

Code: Select all

[609-647] The Valley of Rof L'm Fao
   -> Familiar: volleyball (Turn 609)
   -> Familiar: baby gravy fairy (Turn 610)
   -> Semi-rare: bad ASCII art (Turn 611)

   -> Get plastic guitar (Turn 621)
   -- Get Corsican's blessing (Turn 632)
   -> Get lowercase N (Turn 647)
Turns out to be a waste of a semi-rare because the pr0ns refuse to drop an N until I'm swimming in scroll drops. I guess this balances out the 8-turn f'c'le (and then some).

Code: Select all

I was running a fairy and eyedrops the entire time and didn't get a titanium assault umbrella. But on the plus side, I got 11 sgeeas.

Going to wait to do the castle until my semi-rare window begins.

Code: Select all

[738-769] The Haunted Ballroom

   -> Familiar: volleyball (Turn 794)
   -- Get filthy lucre (Turn 801)
   -> Turn wheel counterclockwise (Turn 805)
Long castle. (I rejected the second wheel adventure because I didn't yet have a giant needle or a D. Turned out to be a bad idea.) So now I have a lucre. But my food situation is fine -- cherry pies, a possible grue egg omelette, and oasis junk should last me until I clear the orchard. Guess I'll save the lucre for tower backfarming.

Code: Select all

--Day 8--

67 adventures to start the day. Going to powerlevel to 12 now in hopes of finishing the orchard before eating/drinking. Questionable decision because it probably leaves me with an excess of things for flyering (Hidden City, MacGuffin bosses, pyramid, most of the 8-bit realm, HitS). But I think the turngen increase from hippy pies is worth it. I do not expect to be overleveled coming out of the war -- I'm planning to run a fairy on the battlefield for hippy MPEs for super salads. (peach pie = 8-14, super salad = 13-16)

In a foolhardy move, I decide to try running pet-buffing spray at the nuns. The result is that I get beaten up twice, wasting precious inhaler turns. (Also, quick library = no inkwell = no Preternatural Greed.) I am not quite finished with the quest, but I decide that it's best to bank so that I can use my Styx Pixie buff here tomorrow.

[1310] The Naughty Sorceress
This was kind of ugly. Lost the first match because I forgot to re-equip after the shadow fight (I had +HP instead of +moxie gear on). Lost the second match because my moxie was just a tad low for safety. Third match I used delevelers and things went relatively smoothly. I also wildly abused the ability to use my scented massage oil over and over until it worked. Best change.

I see your tower El Dia failure and raise you a "her naughtiness awaits you..." with 0 turns left El dia failure..

Not that I'm certain I could've defeated her first try as a seal clubber but yeah I went 0/4 with supersalad attempts too.... and if that update(throwing stuff) hadn't happened I surely would've ran out of nets ( had 11) but .... still one turn short for me... it's going to sting until phel logs in and tells me everything is going to be okay....

It's terribly upsetting how much luck is involved in BM with bounties, towers, other RNG places and how much non luck planning for holidays there is. Holidays are soo much more powerful now without stat days....

A few comments:

Day 3 El dia is better than day 2, it's easy to hit level 5 bank shit tons of turns and get more than enough nightcaps for a 8-9 day attempt. Day 2 makes it really difficult to get enough drinks...

I think the best time to get the eye-pod as an AT is right after Whitey's Grove meat, the Bathole entrance meat, or south of the boarder meat or a combination of the two.. last time I did beach, entrance and drank a whitelighting to burn all 3 bad effects at once in the arena...

When you finished the F'cle you could've finished using the mega item drop in the Orc Chasm to guarantee N drops / scrolls, granted it's only a few turns but if you do get some of the scrolls you need then you can choose to risk it or do Bad Art.

When a barrrrnacle drops there's no reason to get two pet snacks, all the other familiars can be gained in less than 10 turns, as long as you save a lime and get an extra goat cheese...

Orc hobos probably would've been better than the knoll, gourd potions, small chance at harold's bell ( still a couple places to use it).... bum cheek and booze tokens?

I really can't see much else wrong with the run, good strategy planning etc. Nice job...
