This is especially true against the NS, even moreso in hardcore. I just managed to beat her yesterday (29 days into my first NS13 hardcore run) by getting my moxie up to 206 (one[?] point shy of being completely unhittable by her) and spamming saucegeysers and popping MMJs as necessary. I only had to heal once, and I managed to slip my one red pixel potion through her block. (My natural moxie was like 172, and I managed the rest with equipment.)

Really? I know the last run I did as a Pastamancer, I was into level 14 when I did it, didn't have any problems. Just upped spell damage and set about with the two highest spells, and my trusty NPZR. Ripped right through her. I think it only took two or three tries. Though that one does have a few skills banked, like Dual Funkslinging (really handy here, even after NS13).

And I'd say that the myst classes are tough to play, but pretty powerful once you know the ropes. I'm convinced now that Entangling Noodles is one of the most useful skills in the game.

Really?

I was also level 14, but the only skill I had banked was Pastamastery. (It was only my second HC run ever.) I was taking 30+ damage per hit, and I only had around 160HP. I figured it's safer to not get hit at all than reduce the damage she does.

tripwood posted:

Myst classes are the hardest to play. While you can focus exclusively on spells, it's harder and is best done after a few ascensions when you figure out the kinks. I suggest you try to raise your moxie as much as possible and focus on ranged weapons with the occassional spell tossed in. Exploiting elemental weaknesses is primordial as they do twice as much damage.

I followed your advice and all of a sudden it's like I'm playing a different game. Actually it's like I'm playing a game, as opposed to the game playing with me. Anyway, thanks!

Also, how do I get to actually fight Beelzebozo? It seems he just doesn't appear.

You are expected to honor the commitment you made by starting the contest. That being said you may consider yourself banned from both the Contest forum and the Artist's Lair.

BTW, your avatar, as of this writing, exceeds the forum limits and is not acceptable.

Is it possible that KoL is grief-proof? The only way I can think of grief anyone is through some arcane market manipulation. If we could steal his stuff through PvP, he could just restore his hippy stone.

We could also just troll the hell out of the KoL forums, but that's so... 4chan.

Oh uh, are you sure you want transparency, because my attempts so far look either like absolute blurry rear end or like something knocked up in paint. I can't transparentize it without loosing the smoothness of the lines or leaving white bits all over them is what I'm saying.

I am not good with transparency vv.

I'd say it's equally as boring as the rest of the item IOTMS (item items of the month?) really. I mean...the bottle rocket crossbows? The combat skills could have been so cool, but instead we get really poo poo cop-out elemental damage and monster level. The mayflower effects were all your run-of-the-mill random effects, as well.

I dunno, maybe I'm expecting too much, but most of the IOTMS seem to be either really lovely or duplicates of old ones with a the excpetion of a few, like the pixie. I know they have things to be working on, but could they not at least TRY to do something interesting each month? (Obviously, this brings up the issue of nice things for people who can't donate, but is that really such an issue when they're really just trying to get money?)

Did they change the NS again? I am fighting her now as an acordian thief, and my buffs are still active. Granted, it is only 3 songs, and tingly wrists, but I thought she purged any non-inherent buff when you started fighting her.


Also, I noticed there is a zombie pineal gland in the stash. I was going to be making my npzr after I freed the king, and would rather dump 400k meat worth of dense meat stacks, or other items in the stash, rather then spend it in the mall. Can I trade stuff for that, or does anyone else in the clan have a gland for sale?

With Ode, they were probably the best cheap drinks in the game. They were 4 adventures per drunkenness, same as TPS drinks. And since they were only 2 drunk a piece, it would get a lot more out of Ode.

I'm not really surprised.

Is there a reason they don't want us to have slightly more adventures? A good reason? Considering you have to be either softcore (in which case who cares) or level 11 (in which case, again, who cares) to obtain and drink the wine?

They generally focus pretty strongly on keeping balance in the food/drink items, which includes making sure that normal drop items don't rival those which can be crafted. I don't think it was a huge surprise.

"Significantly" wasn't as bad as I took it to mean, but frankly, as someone who is pretty much exclusively in hardcore, I considered the one dusty bottle type a decent reward while doing the level 11 quest (not that the handful of confetti isn't super). I guess I see how it might be considered unbalanced for normal/casual runs, what with the extra ~10-20 adventures you can get from 9 bottles and no level requirement, but I'm sticking with "retarded".

I'm having trouble killing The Man as a HC Disco Bandit. I've done a DB run before, but I was going for the Silver Wossname so it wasn't an issue.

I just can't seem to face stab him to the point where he can't hit me. It's funny, because in my last run my face stabs wouldn't even connect with the NS but I still beat her the first try, and probably took more damage from fumbles than I did from being hit.
