I See A Bad Moon Rising - Creelie's BM SC 13/1656

Post by Creelie » Sat Apr 05, 2014 10:59 pm

After 3 years away, I have found my way back to KoL. A lot has changed in that time. I'm going to finish the brimstone and plexi suits I was working on before I left, and I'm going to start with brimstone. 4 Bad Moon runs, back-to-back. That should be lots of time to re-learn the game from the ground up before I try to integrate all the new shinies.

I'm following this guide pretty closely for now.

Here's how my first day went:

NEW Seal Clubber Hardcore Bad Moon ASCENSION STARTED 20140405
------------------------------

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.

Code: Select all

===Day 1===

[0] Ascension Start [0,0,0]
     o> Ate 1 Brimstone Chicken Sandwich (4 adventures gained) [-28,0,29]
     o> Ate 4 Double Bacon Beelzeburger (20 adventures gained) [114,-107,0]
     #> Turn [0] pulled 1 Clan VIP Lounge key
     #> Turn [0] pulled 5 brick
     #> Turn [0] pulled 3 personalized coffee mug
     #> Turn [0] pulled 2 jazz soap
     -> Turn [0] none
     => Level 2 (Turn 0)! (9/0/5)
     => Level 3 (Turn 0)! (9/0/5)

     +> [8] Got mosquito larva, spooky sapling
     %> [13] Badmoon: This Doesn't Look Like Candy Mountain
     +> [23] Got Spooky-Gro fertilizer
     +> [31] Got Spooky Temple map
     %> [32] Badmoon: That's My Favorite Kind of Contraption
     -> Turn [7] Blood-Faced Volleyball
     => Level 4 (Turn 30)! (13/0/8)
I think Spooky Forest always took this long, and I just forgot. I still need a spooky mushroom, but it can wait.

     +> [75] Got Knob Goblin firecracker
     #> [80] Semirare: Lunchboxing
     o> Drank 1 Typical Tavern swill (6 adventures gained) [1,2,1]

Turn rundown finished!
Pretty pleased with myself for getting all the things I wanted from the Outskirts in one visit: finish the artist's quest, open the guild, and get the lunchbox. I actually had a couple of turns left, but my baby woke up, so I downed my nightcap and turned in. "Tomorrow" I will get the encryption key.

Volleyball is 7 pounds. Need a Knob mushroom and possibly a leprechaun.

Baby's back in bed, rollover's completed, and here I am.

Bounty today: the Treasury. Phooey - the guide explicitly bans going there because you want to save the Bad Moon adventure for the King and Baron. Although . . . I'll be doing the treasury tomorrow, so I should take the bounty today.

Code: Select all

[106-107] The Spooky Forest [6,1,1]

     o> Ate 4 enchanted bean burrito (23 adventures gained) [0,57,0]
Guide recommends enchanted bean burritos at this point. Too sleepy to compare quality of incidental food. Maybe should have brought fairy to Bakery for faster pants.

Code: Select all

[140-144] The Daily Dungeon [7,1,3]
30 mainstat is not enough to not get beaten up. This DD was extremely painful.
See the rest of the sad saga below. In all I spent 19 turns getting a single coin >_< I would probably wait longer in the future.
One thing I noticed a little late - the monsters drop pretty good food! I'll be bringing my fairy next time.

Can't say no to more familiar weight! I'm sort of thinking tower here? Can't hurt.

Code: Select all

[161] Smith 1 bar skin + 1 pants kit [0,0,0]
This was a mistake to make. Pants from the Outskirts are completely identical.

Code: Select all

[162] Pre-Cyrpt Cemetary [6,2,4]

I could have sworn I got the unlock here, but it doesn't look like it. Oh well.

[177-179] Cobb's Knob Kitchens [0,0,0]
[181] Cook [0,0,0]
     +> [181] Got Knob cake
     o> Drank 1 wine spritzer (6 adventures gained) [0,9,0]

Turn rundown finished!
After posting this log I read about infernal seals and used the one figurine that dropped for free today. No adventure used, got a few more stats and some tainted blood. Won't be buying candles and figurines for a good long time yet, if ever - very expensive.

I picked up Hella Smooth right before overdrinking today - thinking tomorrow I'll get a leprechaun, buff up, and take out the Boss Bat. I took Smooth for even more meat from the bodyguard bats - can't ever have too much meat in Bad Moon.

I want to get braver about using Medicinal Herbs. I only used 6 of my 15 possible spleen today, and took some risks that got me Beaten Up when I could have avoided it.

Volleyball is 10 pounds. Looking ahead, I have a certain amount of backfarming to do - time to start thinking about why I am in a zone and if a fairy could help me get somewhere better faster.

Day 3

Post by Creelie » Sun Apr 06, 2014 1:25 am

Plans/Priorities:
-check bounties: keep Treasury bounty or drop for other?
-SR: tarts or wine? Assess when time comes.
-eat 2 good DD foods from yesterday.
1. Tavern for leprechaun and 1 drunkenness; drink all decent or better booze on hand.
2. Equip leprechaun, balm/spray/sugar rush/meleegra, do bodyguards and Boss Bat.
2a. Get Dispensary password (should be 1 turn).
3. Billiards for library unlock and 1 spare chalk. Volley until library unlocked, then fairy if necessary.
4. DD with fairy. Eat DD food. Guide suggests farming spices and enchanted beans but I am not convinced insane burritos would pay for themselves.
5. Treasury with volley to get BM Animal Exploiter buff. Wear KGE outfit once for meat boost, then switch to EW.
6. Hella Tough buff, chalk/balm/spray/other spare potions, do King and Baron.
7. Funhouse with fairy for box and LEW (and booze).
8. Cemetary with fairy for skull, then volley until tower unlocked.
9. Tower with fairy for brain (and fruit). Mix and drink booze as available.
10. /Beaten Up#1: Knoll with fairy for spring.
11. /Beaten Up#2: finish bounty.
12. /Beaten Up#3: Barrels
13. /Beaten Up#4: Hidden Temple with fairy for stone wool
14. Lab for Menagerie Key? If I get this far?

I haven't done much clubber since revamp, but Batter Up! is a powerful skill. That's the only advice I can offer :)
Good work on progress towards full Brimstone. It is a cool thing to complete.

Thanks!

Some of the biggest changes I notice since I've been gone involve class skills. TPTB finally did the huge amount of work necessary to create truly class-specific approaches to combat. I have a bunch of universally-useful passives and buffs still to perm, and then it's going to be really interesting choosing what to go for next.

...when I realized I hadn't finished my stupid bounty >_< Dr. Lucifers were the best filler I could manage and they weren't enough.

11-pound volley, 6-pound fairy, 2-pound leprechaun. 8269 meat, no wanted skills unlearned. 2/3 of the way to level 7. Boris's key and bugbear outfit all ready to make pies.

Plans for Day 4:
1. Drink up. I got a few lemons for muscle drinks, and those wines. Make sure to mix nightcap now.
2. Finish bounty!
3. Get a brain, make a chef. Cook and eat as best I can.
4. Get a Menagerie key.
5. Do Friars quest.
6. Get odor extractor, max out item drops and fairy weight, olfact a Fruit Golem, get +food buff from Friars and Hella Smooth, and farm cherries and limes. Stop and nightcap if +food buff runs out before adventures do.

It rubs me the wrong way, farming ingredients; seems to me that the turns spent run a high risk of negating the extra turns generated. But I can't count on 14 fullness and 14-19 drunkenness worth of good consumables throwing themselves at my feet everyday. And aside from visiting the Barrel sometimes for base booze, cherries and limes are the only ingredients I'll have to farm.

     *> [345] Started hunting Fruit Golem
Oh and after I parsed this I lost a turn to Drunken Stupor, LIKE A BOSS! *facepalm*

4 measly limes. That's 1.3 days worth of pie. I sure hope the second half of this hunt turns up more than that!

I'm going to have to start thinking more independently soon - the guide itself acknowledges that it's badly obsolete past day 6.

Plans for Day 5:
-see what the bounty is.
1. Get another Hella Smooth and Friars +food blessing, finish hunting fruit. Eat hard-earned key lime pies.
2. Barrels because I'm all out of base booze. Mix and drink up.
3. Liver.

If I get Liver successfully I don't so much care about anything else, but here are some things to burn turns if I still have some left after:

4. Whitey's Grove to unlock Road.
5. Road to White Citadel for hippy suit.
5a. Back to Grove 1 more time for 5000 meat.
6. Shoring - hippy suit isn't much good without Island access.

So, yeah. Farming limes and cherries: not very rewarding. I haven't sat down and done the math, but I seriously doubt the extra turns generated exceed the turns spent farming, as compared to "free" food.

Starting to depart from the guide as I see fit. I still like it as a loose order of progression for doing quests and such.

I find making a plan for each day helps me be more efficient with real-time (important since I play between putting my baby to bed and putting myself to bed), and make fewer mistakes.

Plan for Day 6:
-check bounty (lucre is still very useful, even I won't be using it on Fruit Golems)
1. Cyrpt up to Bonerdagon. Volley in niche, fairy in nook, leprechaun in cranny.
2. McLargeHuge up to Groar. Fairy the whole time, burrito blessing on goats.
3. Styx and other buffs, wipe out Bonerdagon and Groar (similar to the twofer I did for the King and Baron).
3a. Save chest and leaflet for Muscle day.
4. If turns still available, start work on the pirate suit.

I'm going to do a little bit of dirty spading here.

This round of fruit farming yielded 9 cherries and 7 limes.

Cherries enable 0.7 adv/drunk over basic mixed drinks, and the drinks are 3 drunk each. 27x0.7=18.9 extra turns.

Limes enable 1.75 adv/fullness over basic fruit pies and the like, and key lime pies are 4 fullness each. Without sparing a lime for the Tower, that's 28x1.75=49 extra turns.

It took 25 turns to farm the odor extractor, and 44 turns to farm the fruit. So I spent 69 turns to gain 68 turns.

This particular iteration of the farming strategy does not highly recommend itself. Some of it is RNG swing, and it might go better with a fatter fairy and more +item equipment, but on the whole, I'm planning to not do it again and accept lower daily turngen. The only other aspect is the levelling the process provides, and the little bit of meat. I'm thinking next run I'll skip the farming entirely and see how things go.

You inflate your turncount, but you're getting a lot of stats, too.

73.84% encounter rate on the fruit golem, when trailed. That's 29.536 over 40 turns.
15% base on limes and cherries. So you expect 4.4304*(1+item drop bonus) of each.
Your item drop bonus is 75% plus fairy. 15 lb fairy (pet buffing, eye pod, 5 base) is 40.7%. So 9.56 cherries and 9.56 limes.
This is almost your yield, except you got shorted by two limes.

Consumption is the worst part, to me, of BM or low-skill HC. I think I would farm limes in your shoes, but didn't know it was so subject to variation.

Some other things to consider: utility of that lucre in other contexts (turngen from eating/drinking it, turns saved by sniffing something else), having a lime for the tower.

Okay, the turngen yielded by the key lime pies DOES make for some very satisfying, full days, even if it is a sort of illusion.

This is just an aside, but: where the HELL does the BM guide think I'm getting spices? It's constantly like "oh, insane burritos, oh, stir fries and lo mein!" What? Where in its own plan does it say, "hang out in the Kitchens or Spooky Woods with your thumb up your butt farming spices!" Grrr.

I was tired tonight and made a few mistakes - getting Beaten Up unnecessarily because I forgot to heal between combats, taking the wrong familiars to the wrong zones.

Plans for tomorrow:
1. Do a bounty. Save 20-odd turns at the end of the day.
2. Barrr, BEFORE drinking. Take drunk/stats noncombat choices. Finish up to F'c'le. (Note: Damn. I have hot wings, I have a briefcase, but neither skirt nor wig. Looks like the skirt is least swingy to get, so I'll be schlepping back to the Knoll for a few turns at some point.)
3. Assess ability to do Peaks. Work on doable sections of Peaks. (Of all the dumbass things, I just had to go and autosell my bumcheek, didn't I?)
4. Repeat Fruit Golem farming cycle.

     *> [772] Started hunting Fruit Golem

Turn rundown finished!
So I started the day thinking, "eff you, outskirts and castle bounties!" But I ran through the day's turns really fast eating and drinking crap. So I went for the lucre I could get, and bitterly regretted not taking slightly-less-suboptimal bounties earlier. I was able to olfact the fruit golem and hit up the friars and styx pixie before the end of the day though, so I will get two full cycles of the friars buff.

Got A-Boo Peak done. Rather pleased with myself for saving a lihc eye and stomach room for the spooky resist.

The guide recommends minimum +20 ML for Oil Peak. All I've got so far is Victor and the Hellevator. Hopefully something else will drop later. Is whip usage in combat survivable in Bad Moon as a Seal Clubber? I'll do the F'c'le first and see if a curmudgel drops.

As for Twin Peak . . . well. For 4 stench resist: I can re-grab a bumcheek, and maybe the Slug Lord's Map will drop at the same time, and for the last bit I will wait to see if an Oil of Parrlay drops in the F'c'le. 50% item drop and 40% initiative won't be hard to get, but the jar of oil can only be obtained in the Oil Peak, so the whole shebang has to wait until I have access to more ML.

Plans for tomorrow:
1. Fruit farming cycle.
2. Bank turns for stat day. . . OH HELL. There are no more stat gains on stat days in hardcore/ronin! THERE is a change I'm surprised at!!! Although in retrospect I shouldn't be; planning runs around stat days was very dickstabby.
NEW PLAN 2. Use chest and leaflet, eat delicious grue egg omelette as part of a complete breakfast.
3. Backfarm bumcheek, and hopefully sluglord's map.
4. F'c'le with fairy. There are a couple of drops I'm really hoping for from here that will help in the Peaks. Choose a cyclops eyedrops for the semi-rare and use it here maybe?
5. Oil Peak if 20 ML attained.
6. Twin Peak if 4 stench res available.

Goals for tomorrow:
1. Go reset ballroom song to -combat.
2. Finish Twin Peak.
3. Zap letter (as I've been doing for several days); if no N obtained, farm one. Consider getting facsimile dictionary while I'm at it.
4. Work on level 10 quest.

I just realized a thing. I got my wand so quickly that I have not a single potion. I'm thinking my best option is to save some drunkenness, and farm/use potions one at a time at the gates. I'll keep them in mind as a backfarming activity, though, along with pixels.

Decided to use it on pixel farming. Now I have to decide if I want to olfact the Blooper.

I'm most of a day ahead of the guide at the moment, although my poor choices are eroding that lead steadily. It's all a learning experience, though.

Goals for tomorrow:
1. Finish pixels. Olfact Blooper?
2. Set up GMoB in Bathroom.
3. Get a mirror in Bedroom.
4. Powerlevel to 11. Open Gallery?
5. Start work on MacGuffin quest: forest to open market, shore, desert if I get that far.

Yup! Getting excited, already thinking about what I'm going to do differently in Turtle Tamer.

Honestly, Seal Clubber is probably my favorite class. I love just swinging my weapon around and splattering mobs. I've barely taken Blood of the Wereseal off since selling my dictionary.

If, on my last day, I break my wand without getting the right third key AND I need a potato, I am going to be screwed if I don't have access to 2 tokens.

Day 13

Post by Creelie » Thu Apr 17, 2014 12:59 am

Logging disaster! The parser doesn't think my Day 13 exists!

Here's a recap, anyway:
-short, lucky Junkyard.
-forgot to turn in Arena quest in uniform and wasted a couple of turns before turning it in properly.
-decided to open and use the Gallery to hit level 13. 2-3 noncombats got me there.
-needed teleportitis potion. Last potion to drop from 2nd or 3rd mimic, very frustrating.
-successfully zapped 1 key to get all tablets without blowing up wand.
-needed black pepper and frigid ninja stars, had everything else.
-used 1 pixel potion, multiple filthy poultices and a scented massage oil to defeat shadow.
-needed mosquito and potato. had token ready to go.
-had the turns to spare so let NS beat me down 4 times to reduce blocking.
-freed king at 13 days, 1656 turns: #5 on the BM SC leaderboard! which I don't think looks very far back into history - there are much much better runs right here in the log forum.
-PvP'ed 100 times before taking the level 13 cold resist skill I wanted, had to level in the Gallery to 13 again. (I have wanted the passive ele resist rainbow for ages, and now I'm getting it in preparation for a telescope loop. Shut up, I just want it.)
-reincarnated as a Turtle Tamer.
