[CIP] Cagey Shinobi - HuAs^Wu Jian

After losing three high powered characters in a row due to stupid errors, I've got another one taken off. HuAs is a fun class for thematic reasons, and Wu Jian really adds to the Ninja feel. Wu Jian also really rewards Short Blades and especially the quick blade since martial attacks are regulated b...

Re: Tournament rules can cause health problems

imo the best way to structure a tournament to reflect skill and not encourage massive grinding is to only allow a player to count their *best game* for any given category. By only selecting a player's best run, it encourages significantly less brute forcing multiple runs for 10+ hours per day. You c...

Re: Tomb 3 strategy without ranged attack?

When I cleared Tomb with a HaFi of TSO, I devoted almost all of the experience I gained in Cocy, Dis and Geh to getting Control Blink online. Once you can cBlink over to the doorways and up stairs, its a bit more manageable. Immolation scrolls and Evocables like the Lamp of Fire are good for clearin...

Re: What would current features look like in older versions?

"Ach, didn't realized I was confused and moved while next to my Hep ancestor. Well that's another game wasted." Fun fact, your Ancestor can be affected by Discord. So if you are playing Hep, and have gone heavily into hexes yourself, be careful of casting Discord near your ally or he may ...

Re: How to win Deep Elves?

Interestingly, I like TSO when I play Summoner. I feel that TSO's toolkit offers a lot of interesting benefits at the cost of the high power unholy summons. Halo prevents invisibility near you, and most summons don't have see invisible. Even if the player has see invisible it doesn't help as much if...

Re: Annoyed

2) Stealth sucks, in fact it is dangerous. Had this been an extremely loud character of TSO with lots more AC, it would have been perfectly viable to start killing stuff from the stairs and stair-dance in the worst of case scenarios.

Re: Can we tone down the number of two-headed ogres

i disagree that only Bee and Centaur packs are interesting. I personally think that Orc packs are fairy well done, at least at the time they are first encountered. Orc packs function really well because the various orc types have some basic synergy that works pretty well together. Priests are danger...

The only time an Air Elementalist really f...

Re: How to win Deep Elves?

The math doesn't make sense because you can't simply add evasion and block chances together and come up with a useful number, if you evade 24% of attacks, and you block 20% of attacks, then you will block 20% of the 76% that remain after you evaded 24% of them, so you will actually end up dodge/blo...

Re: CiP DEWz^Ash Endgame Spell Selection

Quick update. I've jumped into End Game proper. I had a bad experience in Abyss (as I expected) as the requirement for rapid movement was not letting me keep up with my spells. After escaping, I ducked into Pan, which is much more to this character's pace of resting in between fights. Since my curre...

CiP DEWz^Ash Endgame Spell Selection

I haven't played a pure caster in a long time. This character has really come into her own though, so its likely I'll go for a full 15 rune run. I am currently in the process of pivoting my spell selection and am almost out of available spell slots. I'm pretty close to where I want to be in terms of...

Re: Make stabbers great again!

I have noticed that pivoting with stabbers can be difficult. One thing I've found to help me is to take advantage of cross training with long blades- which are the better weapon for longer fights. Stabbers tend to be more EV focused since heavy armor hurts stealth score, which coincidentally pairs w...

But if you already have a pain branded weapon- like that hand axe there. You are getting comparatively little out of Kiku's Pain brand gift. Also more things start resisting Pain brand the further into the game you go, and you get more use out of it the earlier you use it. By the time you actually m...

Dithmenos does three main things in endgame. 1)...
