Road to greatfelid (20/20): a 3 months late announcement.

Welp, as you all probably know, my greatfelid run is complete now, and has in fact ended 3 months ago. Someone has made a reddit post about it back then and the crawl scoring page on CAO website has been displaying my streak the whole time too. Meanwhile, i've been procrastinating on making a report...

Re: Road to greatfelid (19/20): casual 49 EV.

Not gonna lie, i'm already bored with Crawl again but gotta finally finish this run ASAP anyway. FeEE is actually a surprisingly solid (yet not recommended by the game) start: Sandblast deals a ton of damage for a level 1 spell and felid's speed is as good as always. However, i still got into big tr...

I think FE is great for melee. Your best spell, sticky flame requires you to be in melee range anyway. So you might as well hit the dude a few times so it dies even faster. It is trading safety for turns and real-time which is bad while streaking IMHO. As Fe you don't have a reason to stay in melee...
