YA(V)SD - TrSt of Jiyva

Lessons to be learned: Vaults can ramp up the difficulty a lot due to level layout aside from the obvious fact that the monster set is dangerous. Even more so when you play like a retard like I do! :) (no offense to mentally challenged people out there)

I hate low AC combos!!! I've never managed to get a Troll with high AC ever and I said screw this I'm gonna play EV-based. Then at some point I found the Golden King in a room of Shoals but I didn't have enough STR to use it. Obviously. Xom what have I done to you...?

Found some epic (un)randarts in terms of resists though (amulet/robe). Oh hat of the alchemist, i'm gonna miss you. Till next we meet! :cry:

I am sorry Expendables, hubris got me again. -_-

I love the hat of the Alchemist. It's everything you could want in a hat. The only downsides are 1) no unarmed aux attack and 2) 1 less AC. Both of those are negligible downsides, so who cares!

If you're with jiyva, you can put on the golden dragon armour and he will (over a few thousand turns) move your strength over until you can wear it properly

but your casting will still be annihilated as usual

Good to know Night! Any clues on how to weigh towards INT? Jiyva still insisted on having dex as my main stat.

Sad story.. I've never been brave enough to try Jivya but you were going pretty well. Although I imagine that Vault:8 was a good proving ground, wonder if you could have stalked your way through Zot for the win with Jivya's help with bypassing the Vault.

Not an effort to be ashamed of though! Don't worry, the Expendables will prevail! :)

If there is a way to stop him from insisting you are a dex character, I haven't figure it out yet, and I've done quite a bit of testing

it could be the way it is on purpose.. for some kind of balance purpose.. but he will never just max out your intellect unless you pretty much only, only have magic skills. I think the problem is more in our perspective: Intellect is just so damn good that even hybrids don't give a single shit about strength(aside from carrying capacity, which is a constant annoyance as a jiyva worshipper :/) or dex.

I just make the best of it by putting points in dodging when the time comes that I can spare the exp. This was around level 25 on my current ogre hybrid though lol.

Return to YASD! YAVP! and characters in progress too
