Enter Treasure Trove early

Hi guys.

I found a treasure trove and an ability to enter it (17 ID scrolls) fairly early in the game. I am XP level 12. Is there any reason why I should hold off spending my 17 ID scrolls now? The only reason to wait I could think of is if you think your skills are not yet set right to influence the acquirement right.
But I should just enter now and hopefully score some goodies early right?

This also leads to the bigger question of should you always enter a trove as soon as you are able?
Thanks.

Re: Enter Treasure Trove early

I don't think your skills affect it it all. It only really cares about what you CAN use, not what you WANT to use. I see absolutely no reason to hold off, and in the unlikely event that you die you're going to kick yourself for not entering it. Just remember to leave room to pick up everything.

Re: Enter Treasure Trove early

A general rule of thumb for troves that I can think of is leave everything, except your equipment because god knows if someone decided that there might be baddies in troves.

Though it is a kick between the legs what with it taking so many ID scrolls that you would actually need to identify the stuff in the trove.

But yeah, you should definitely go in.

Re: Enter Treasure Trove early

Ok. Give me 5 mins :)

By the way, this is completely off-topic. So I am sorry about this. But it is driving me mad right now as I went through the wiki instructions(formatting syntax), but couldnt find the info. How do you sign a post you make in the feature request wiki?
For example — KiloByte 2012-02-28 20:35

Well, that was fun. So much fun, in fact, a worker ant was biting me and taking my health down because I was so absorbed trying everything on!
By the way, I really hope this post does not put an idea into a devs head that they should make it harder to enter troves early. The player base would never forgive me!

Re: Enter Treasure Trove early

I would have used this: +6 buckler of Gysaj instead of the one you use currently unless you have no other source of rElec to swap as needed (swapping a buckler is not recommended unless you have no other choice).

Re: Enter Treasure Trove early

It's my opinion that troves shouldn't have negative equipment like those terrible Game of Life gloves. You have to spend or achieve something expensive to get in there.

Additionally, I'm wondering if it shouldn't be something like "The Slimy Rune" (from Slime Pits) since if you get that rune, you (a) probably don't need what's in the trove and (b) probably already fell on a ton of equipment from the slime vaults.

Re: Enter Treasure Trove early

Are the Game of Life gloves really so terrible? They don't seem any more useless than the sInv helm or or the rN robe. This trove seems pretty baller to me -- I've had troves with sixteen items that were completely useless to my character.

I like that you already had Archmagi.

Good Intentions might also be a good buckler choice (man, you have a lot of good bucklers) -- but having rElec is nice as some proof against a chain-lightning-happy Nikola. You might switch to Gysaj if you start hitting dudes more. Slaying on your shield is awfully nice.

Bitchin', this sure beats the potion trove that cost me 15 ID scrolls to visit.

rune troves can be fun as they encourage you (or at least me) to go for the rune sooner. The occasional bad item is OK, you get so many items that you won't miss it.

That's great, but make it a rune that doesn't come with a huge reward for obtaining it, like the Slime Pits do.
Granted, I'm equating obtaining the slimy rune with killing the Royal Jelly, but you have to in order to get it, and once you get it, it's like opening 1.5 vaults.

Re: Enter Treasure Trove early

Eh, some troves are more valuable than others. You're less likely to get something you want from a post-endgame-rune trove, but not totally unlikely.
