NEW Turtle Tamer ASCENSION STARTED 20140417

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.

Don't forget to farm for turtle rod stuff. Some of the equipment are worth getting without spending too many tuns out of yhe way for them. :)

Burnt off BU here instead, got an MP regen outfit and nice shield.

     o> Drank 1 extra-spicy bloody mary (5 adventures gained) [12,10,10]
So, pushing ML is going pretty well, but I need to be more careful. I'm not getting BU because it's too hard, but because I'm taking risks and forgetting things.

Tomorrow I plan to :
1. work on the Treasury bounty until I get Animal Exploiter
2. get Hella Tough and take out the King and Baron
3. finish Treasury bounty
4. get LEW and booze and box in the funhouse
5. finish Wizard of Ego quest, get brain and skull, make chef-in-the-box
6. do Daily Dungeon again
7. consider doing another bounty, pushing to level 7 at Hidden Temple, farming pixels, or starting the Friars quest.

Treasury bounty is a pretty nice one honestly - very generous with the meat, and you end up with beans for burritos.

Next bounty is in the funhouse! Sweet, I was going there anyway!

     o> Drank 1 whiskey and soda (6 adventures gained) [0,9,0]
Finish this off tomorrow.

Code: Select all

[296] Mix 4 bottle of tequila + 4 lemon [0,0,0]
Well, that was a departure from the plan for the day, but only in terms of how long I spent in various places.

Tomorrow:
1. Finish off funhouse bounty.
2. Get chef-in-the-box.
3. Friars.
4. Menagerie key.
5. Lime farming.

I know I angrily declared I wouldn't be farming limes anymore, but I have reconsidered. My fairy is 5 pounds heavier this time. I will probably not be doing a second loop though - it was not really worth it last run, both in terms of yield and in terms of how close I was to same-ballpark food.

I think I want to try out KolProxy tomorrow as well. The log may look a bit different.

      [#] Drank margarita [6 adventures gained]
      [#] Used mauve polka-dot oyster egg
Went pretty much as planned, except I forgot about Oyster Egg Day. I had to keep swapping between basket and turtling rod, but I got lots of turtlemail - enough for all 3 armor pieces. The shirt and hat are especially nice. Got a few eggs.

Tomorrow:
1. Finish lime farming. Eat pie.
2. Get Liver.
3. Get lucky rabbit's foot, and hopefully hippy suit.
4. Get to work on zap wand. It's useful all over and I need potions anyway.
4a. Shore off Teleportitis.
5. Doubt I'll get this far, but if so: farm pixels. Still olfact blooper when zone is closer to level-appropriate? IDK.

Wat D:

All these little things I get blindsided with!

I guess that fully explains why people use the gelatinous cubeling and get three keys, and fax a Quantum Mechanic, to avoid setting foot in the DoD at all.

ETA: "the update". Is there a specific major update that you are referring to, that I could look up and read about?

    [436-438] Whitey's Grove
    [439-471] The Road to White Citadel
    [472-473] Whitey's Grove
    [474-491] The Enormous Greater-Than Sign
    • [#] Drank 4x Imp Ale [4 adventures gained]
    [492] Noob Cave
This lime farming cycle yielded 13 limes. I closeted one against the tower, and that leaves 12 - enough for 4 straight days of pies. I am pleased. I may do the same in my Sauceror run, but taking the time to get an eye-pod. (Pastamancer run will have noodles, so no.) There were a bunch of cherries too, but cherries are worthless without whisky or wine. The worth of this strategy all turns on the limes.

I got the 14-drunkenness adventure on my first click with Teleportitis. Hello again, little kitty! Really glad I was already at 19 drunk.

Packed away a pet snacks. Next up is a cyclops eyedrops, which drops from the LIMERICK dungeon, self!

Tomorrow:
1. Finish getting wand. Combat-use potions as acquired.
1a. BARREL off leftover Teleportitis.
2. Goatlet.
2a. Back to Barrel for as much booze as necessary to fill liver.
3. Cyrpt. Fairy nook, volley niche, leprechaun alcove and cranny. Save Bonerdagon for slaying back-to-back with Groar.
4. Rest of McLargehuge.
5. All the buffs, Bonerdagon/Groar. I'm a muscle class, I can handle it.
6. Hippy camp with pheromones and rod for syncopated turtle, 2nd hippy outfit piece (zap if needed).

My plan to fit pixels in somewhere level-appropriate is scuppered. I might as well wait until I have a bunch of +item buffs from elsewhere and burn them - maybe even post-filthworms or something.

I bought Empathy today. It's super-sweet. It also makes me think about the merits of flyering - I won't need the buff from the arena for the tower. On the other hand it saves a number of battlefield turns, and I seem to be levelling pretty fast; it would not be hard to end up with lots of things to flyer without setting foot in the Bathroom.

Not sure how to get proxy to only show when I *switched* familiars :/
Olfacted a dirty lihc. Wasn't worth it.

Finished with the back-to-back boss slaying I was counting on. Wondering if I should take these big fat muscle buffs into the Menagerie for a kick at the Booze Giants. Or I could just let them go and shore my way to the pirates. That's probably more sensible.

Tomorrow:
-don't drink until after Barrr.
-check bounties.
1. Shoring.
2. Pick up hippy suit and syncopated turtle.
3. Pirate suit.
3a. Gym for frilly skirt.
4. Barrr with fairy, Hella Smooth and +booze friar blessing. Take drunk adventure choices for phat statz.
5. Chasm.
6. Peaks: stockpile 3 A-Boo clues, do item and stench legs of Twin, then stop until after I've been through Castle.
7. Library: open upstairs, get 1 scroll, consider opening conservatory.

I'm levelling faster than last time, thank you Heartbreaker's, but I will probably still need to powerlevel some.

From the wiki:http://kol.coldfront.net/thekolwiki/ind ... ing_(2013)
August 30, 2013
Desert Beach has been given a new coat of paint, and The Shore has been given a new coat of basically everything.

The Shore update turned it into an adventure.php zone, so it triggers teleportitis now.
As does the Daily Dungeon.

Well, nuts. Glad I had the heads-up! Don't think I can quite face reading the entire update log, although maybe I should start working through it at some point.

Took a bounty in the conservatory. Now regretting doing so, but unwilling to abandon sunk cost for zero reward. On the other hand the further sunk cost outweighs the reward of less sunk cost in 8-Bit. AND, can't believe I only saw this now, but the hard bounty on offer is mechs. That's it, abandoned. Call it a lesson for next run.
Did not get stench leg of Twin done; only had 3 resist. Will save for doing after clues since will be using some prismatic resistance items at that time.
Got an incredible pizza, so picked up Pizza Lover.

Tomorrow:
-check for giants bounty, which would be even better than mechs (made lots of scrolls today, gonna need candles).
1. Turtle pheromones, turtling rod and syncopated turtle for hedgeturtles which are available in all the following zones.
2. Bedroom to open Ballroom.
3. Ballroom to +noncombat.
4. Bathroom until +100% item drop BM adventure.
5. F'c'le with Hella Smooth.
6. Airship.
7. Castle.
8. Gallery to 11.

Really missing all the resources I have permed outside of Bad Moon.

Tomorrow:
1. Finish Peaks. Forgot about that today!
1a. Gallery to 11.
2. Follow suggested MacGuffin route on wiki, saving Ed for flyering.

Rearranged a few things: getting to level 11, getting black market, so that I could use a can of black paint on both stench and cold/spooky, due to no other sources of stench resist being available. Also enabled just squeaking by with 3 clues. Then departed from guide schedule to open Hidden Tavern in time to drink today. I banished janitors to the Park and then fought IN the Park until tavern was open. Pissed at myself for using my first drum machine without hooks, and for not understanding Proxy's warning about eating my semi-rare in the Temple. :(

Bit more meat-poor this time around due to no dictionary. Hoping to zap an N and never set foot in the Valley. Didn't happen today though.

Tomorrow:
1. Keep working on MacGuffin quest. Maybe kill Ed after all since as a TT I can skip arena quest entirely? At any rate, do Lord Spookyraven, Protector Spectre and Dr. Awkward all in one set of buffs.
2. Farm HitS to 12.
3. Start war, do filthworms first for access to pie.

Today I learned that one of the Oyster egg buffs is +meat! Too bad I didn't learn that at the Nuns >_<

Didn't quite start the war today, and Ed pushed me to 12 without ever setting foot in the HitS yet. I will feast on pie and wine tomorrow though :D I doubt I'll ascend tomorrow; I still need at least one N, pixels, and star crap.

Tomorrow:
1. Orchard.
2. Nuns - get Cemetary BM buff, then use Hella Smooth, inhaler, etc. Too bad I didn't get any candles in the Castle this time.
3. Farm.
4. Battlefield to Junkyard.
5. Junkyard.
6. Battlefield to The Man.
7. buy filthy poultices and macrame nets.
8. The Man.
9. Hole in the Sky (with war reward)

I said it so blithely. "Barring massive RNG screw," I said. That'll show me. 25-turn N, IcyVapoHotness Rub that I somehow didn't have, blew up my wand before getting 3rd key so had to do DD, pygmy blowgun and black pepper. Fuck me. Still working on black pepper when I ran out of turns.

Stay tuned for the ignominious ending tomorrow.

NS down first try - plinked away with attorney's badge, spiky turtle shoulderpads, and cocoabo with bowler hat. Run complete at 13/1514. An improvement on my last run, though slightly less dramatically so than I had hoped.

Even though it mainly speaks to how few people are running BM these days, it's nice to see myself on the TT leaderboard.

Considering staying in aftercore for a day or two. Although "aftercore" after a Bad Moon run is spectacularly borked - not everything unlocks properly. So I might just ascend after farming off my remaining turns.

Stay tuned for part 3 of 4 of this saga: "I See Earthquakes and Lightning", a Pastamancer run! NO LIMES, JUST NOODLES!
