I'm finally mostly free of work.
Medusa's Sanctum: Had some trouble with Mananangal's and Gorgon's. Found Medusa after about 4 encounters. She's more or less a Gorgon with some additional abilities to support her AoE Stone. Her Gorgons were Mindbender, with Ego Theft. :( I initially run away in hopes of getting a better position. On my second attempt, I manage to get my Bonnachon to engage early and close in. They never landed a Harden, Even after non-Matter resistant targets were nearby. Likely they were out of SP. I run to rest, then lure her to a portal in case the link goes badly. I could've used a Gold Offering, but decided what her link was about. I'm pretty sure boss opponents aren't supposed to basically suicide by a protect link demon's Poison Veil, but he did. :) Replaced Bonnachon. Thought of giving Acid Breath + Burning Vapor combo to either Medusa or Myself, but decided against it. Gave Medusa Second Wind + Unconquerable combo, seeing how it's mostly an SP upgrade at cost of a slot. Over Vengeful Bmola also gets this combo instead of Tireless and Soothe. Also replace Baphomet's Inspire with Tormentor. Found a corpse encounter. Do demons avoid using incapacitating abilities on already incapacitated targets? Because Medusa, Instead of hitting 4 demons (3 of which were Sleeping) with Petra Glare went into melee with an Acheri. Thankfully, large amount of AoE damage and status effects look care of that group easily.
Tower 16: Encounter Adria. She focuses on Medusa, but with all of my Healing she tanks it easily, and Adria dies quickly. I encountered a Foul Mananangals, Shogoths and Shikigami group which could inflict most debuffs. I loose Medusa because I didn't notice when Mananangals got their Bligh back. :x I also lost a chunk of MaxHP to preservation. I recruit a Foul Mananangal to fill my slot. Even with her Petra Glare setup, I don't think Medusa is worth 9949 Credits, so I will keep Mananangal. I give it Malice, Tormentor and Second Wind, replacing Slow. I had it for 2 battles, and it already feel very satisfying. :) And it proved to be very effective in the future.
Tower 17: A group of Rulers with Archangels and Angels gives me trouble Thanks to their buffs. Found Tlaloc on this floor. I recruit him, Sacrificing over half of my MaxHP and Turdak, and also having to use a Wind Card to retreat. Being in close range to a pair of Civatateo with Mind Spike at 1/50-ish HP is not good. :o Cleared up the rest of the enemies with some difficulty. Decided not to risk checking corpses at my still rather lox MaxHP.
Tower 18: My lowered MaxHP is still giving me trouble if fights. I give Tlaloc Second Wind + Unconquerable combo instead of Vengeful. I reached level 25 here and got Recycle. I'm hoping to use it for late game party modifications. By this point, I got back all of my MaxHP. I found a corpse encounter with an Ikiryo in it. I didn't want to deal with it, didn't have it in my Codex and had Bronze Offerings to spare. Sadly I got just about 60 credits for it as it had a high base level. I also recruit and Recycle an Angel for some Credits. Planed also doing it with a Hob, but I didn't notice that some of my demons couldn't see the Focus Fire target and attacked it instead.
Anansi's Sanctum is next, and it feels like there are 1 or 2 Sanctums left, so this seems to be a good stopping point.

Ego Theft Gorgons. :D I owe the RNG a pizza.

I don't know if I'd call it suicide... if Medusa lived long enough to see him Poison Veil himself down, you must have been throwing out some ridiculous healing or you got extremely lucky with Poison sticking to him reliably. :D

Yeah, the AI doesn't see much point in double lockdowns... but on the other hand, Sleep into Harden->Stone feels like it should be valuable. I'll make appropriate adjustments. :D Thank you. :D

The talk of how low MaxHP makes things more challenging convinces me, as unconventional as it was, that Relic Preservation is actually a cool mechanic. :D In most other roguelikes, you'd just be dead and starting over with the most familiar/easiest content again. Instead Demon says "fine, you get to live for now, but the game's going to be Even Harder for a little while, and if you don't shape up, THEN you go back to the start" :D Something about this appeals greatly to me. :D

Seems like you're on a pretty good tear through the Tower. :D Thanks for the report, and good luck in the last floors. :D

I kept tearing through demons. Until Antoria happen, anyway.
Anansi's Sanctum: My Reprobus dies to Ye-te-veos and Pixies because I was Paniced and couldn't Dismiss him. :x Could've avoided it if I used a Healing Gem. I also dip into Preservation thanks to Pele Panicking and dropping a Rain of Fire on me. And then lose Mananangal to lack of attention. I really shouldn't be making those mistakes at this stage of the game. Recruited Polar Pixie and, later, Ehlose to fill slots and to potentially Recycle later. Found Anansi. Decided not to recruit him. His fight was annoying, but doable, especially with Tlaloc's Snowstorm. He was also the last encounter. After taking a few corpses, I get enough Credits to Restore Foul Mananangal, Recycling Pixie for 162, which is less than her recruitment cost was. :x I then find an Orb of Power Wraith named Filthlord. Focused on Light/Dark. Ha also had Aux Power II. It certainly was a really annoying fight, with AoE Infection, MaxHP drain and Relief. I also got put to Sleep at the same time as the Wraith died, which lead to Baphmet Igniting and killing it's low HP level 16 Fearie before I could Recycle it. :x I fight a corpse encounter before leaving.
Tower 19: I recruit an Incubus after giving a chunk of MaxHP to it. Ehlose is Recycled for 323. My party has trouble with both Ice and Light now. (Mostly with Light) I manage to Recycle a Shogoth from a corpse encounter for 1407. Not much happen, other than that. Had a tough corpse encounter in addition to the one I Recycled Shogoth from.
Tower 20: A big group of Onis makes me dip into Preservation. And than I find Jayle. She was Matter Immune. :( And had Ninkasi. I use my remaining Wind Card to escape. As a result, I get into a fight with some of my demons hurt. I manage to defeat them, and, after another battle, encounter Jayle again, this time deciding to fight her. It goes roughly, but I manage to focus enough damage on Jayle while keeping my demons' HP high. And then she Dismissed 2 demons in a row who weren't, I think, in that much of a danger. They were wounded and Paniced, so that might've had something to so with it. I kill Jayle, but she had Leib-olmai out at the time, and it started using Calming Rain. :( I decide to Bronze Offering it to get it of the board. I decide to Recycle Tlaloc for 2215 after giving away his abilities to a bunch of demons. I also decide to link with Ninkasi, thinking I can handle dealing with her link and remaining demons at the same time. I was right – it's an easy link normally, and I'm even higher level then intended. :) I give Incubus Alluring Gaze and fuse to make it Brewmaster. It gets Guarding Cry, although that means it has double Presence cooldowns now. Bmola almost dies in a fight with Powers and Rulers. I trigger a Wraith spawn on a corpse, but this floor didn't have any Wraiths. After a bunch of corpse encounters, I head to the next floor.
Tower 21: I find Antoria. It starts of smoothly, but I notice the fight turning against me too late, and Leib-olmai dies. :o I do manage to defeat him after using 2 Healing Gems. Then I find a Yukki-onnas and Mullasas group, and it ends up killing me. With Leib-olmai dead, Bmola was the only Calmer, and it got Charmed in the fight. I should've stayed back, but I was spending my turns switching out my demons. Then a Yukki-onna Haunted and Charmed me, leading to enemies focusing on me and killing me. :(
This was a really promising run, but Antoria ruined it by killing Leib-olmai, which lead to my death to Yukki-onnas. I probably could've avoided it if I would've fought Antoria more carefully. Not loosing a lot of Credits on Restores would've also helped. Basically, my loss was the total of my earlier mistakes, in a way.

I'm thinking of making a Fire Vodun Mask build, after seeing how effective that can be with Pele and Baphmet.

Re: My characters and YASDs

Postby Ferret » Sun Jun 24, 2018 9:51 pm

Tower:21 may not be a win, but it is still a really impressive run. :) Those last few floors in particular can be nasty.

Calming Rain to undo Relic Explosion's Sleep effect... eeeeek. :D Mean game has been being mean lately, between that and the Ego Theft Gorgons.

I guess the Recycle nerf must be working: It still sounds like it was useful (at times), but no longer game-breaking. What do you think of it, overall?

But yeah, I agree this does sound a bit like this one was death by a thousand cuts... though Yuki-Onna can be nasty business even under ideal conditions.

Thanks for the report. :D Good luck with your upcoming Fire run :D

Re: My characters and YASDs

Postby Saler » Fri Jan 25, 2019 9:24 pm

Sorry for the long delay. Got distracted by other stuff, and, well, I usually have a hard time coming back to games after taking a long break from them. :roll: I guess I'll play this character unlit death or victory, then download the new version.
Yeah, Recycle seems to be balanced now. It's not an insane amount of credits, but still worthwhile to sometimes pass up on a Fusion, even with a Unique modifier.
Fire/Fire Vodun Mask with Hou Shu starter. Hopping that Hou shu's hybrid attack will help me in case of a Fire resistant opponent early on.
By Tower 1 ½ I had Hou Shu, Raicho, Gandayah (with Healing Charm), Faerie,Abbey Lubber and Freybug.
I immediately find enough credits to fuse Lifegiver Gandayah. It gets Calm and Absolution. :) Filled the slot with a Preta, than had a tough encounter with Kashas, who I didn't think I could recruit reliably. Then I find a Psychic Will-o-Whisp with Pink Whisper. I link with it and copy Whisper to Raicho. I find Headless and recruit him, having to use a Healing Stone in process because of bad positioning. Later, I find another Kasha group, and, since this is the last group, I decide to link with one of them and get more demons to kill from a corpse. It works! I replace Freybug, giving Raicho Tormentor. Back at Tower 2, I fight 3 Wraiths.
Tower 3: I find Actaeon. With some trouble, I get Artemis to spawn, then link with her and kill Actaeon. I then find an Ukobach. I recruit him, replacing Kasha. I noticed that Focus Fire won't make no offensive abilities demons focus on the target even when their AI would choose to attack.
Vikhor's Sanctum: Most of this floor went fine. I got to Level 5 and got Quick Dismiss. Then Ukobach died to Vikhor's group because I got Shocked and couldn't dismiss it. :x I really should've copied both of it's Fire passives to my other demons, by instead I copied just Warmth to myself. I really don't want to use a Restore so early on. Since I no longer had a full party, I left an encounter corpse behind. I got High Voltage from a corpse, so I decided to copy Shocking Touch to myself.
Tower 4: I recruit a Echeneis to fill my empty slot. Then, forgeting I have done that, I recruit a Zar. :roll: I't probably still a better demon. I get Bask from a Corpse, but I'm not sure if I'm going to use it. It shares it's cooldown with Combust. I replace my Zar with an Arachne I found.
Tower 5: I replace my Arachne with a Fiery Dryad with Bask and Combust. Unfortunatly, I forgot to copy Mend to it. I copy Bask to Gandayah and Combust to Artemis. I also remove Combust from Dryad. I find Ccoa and almost succed linking with her, but then she Jaunts out of my line of sight and the link times out. I find and recruit a Carbuncle. I delete my Hou Shu, giving Carbuncle Firestarter (I mistakenly thought it was Greek Fire), Dryad – Restore and Gandayah – Fiery Claw. I get a Dark/Slash Eye of the Dragon Wraith named Hamilcar from a corpse. I would've liked to have it's Solid Goblin with Ready Guard, but I couldn't free up a slot and sisn't have the credits for a copy. The Wraith didn't give me any trouble.
It's nice to be back to this game, althought it feel kinda bad to be playing such an outdated version because I already began a character here and don't want to abandon him. I mostly remember how to play, but I definetly am being less attentive than ussual.

Oh hey, welcome back. :)

Yeah, Recycle doesn't seem quite so broken these days. Extra-good players still tend to end up Credits heavy towards the end of the game, but that's a general issue, not Recycle-specific.

Pffft. :P You got Calm AND Absolution from a Lifegiver fusion? I need to make the RNG more evil. :P

Focus Fire specifically excludes pacifists: if you want even pacifists to attack a target, you need to use All Out Attack.

Nothing wrong with finishing up a game on an outdated version. :) I usually do the same thing in other games that update regularly :)

Sounds like this run is off to a good start so far. :) Good luck, and thanks for the report and feedback. :D

Re: My characters and YASDs

I don't remember exactly what happen, but I think what I meant by the Focus Fire thing is that a demon with no attack abilities was attacking targets other than the Focus Fire one.
Anomaly 1: After a few fights, I think I found an AI problem. I'm not sure if it was already fixed. My Headless was on the frontline when my Raicho displaced him. Then it looked like my Gandayah also walked forward, displacing him, but in hindsight, I think Headless walked away from the enemy, seeing how Gandayah was closing in any further. And then Headless started walking back and forth on the same 2 tiles. And when I re-summoned him closer to the enemy, he walked back to me again! :x I'll send a screenshot if I won't forget. Other than that, this floor went fine.
Python's Sanctum: I encounter an Ooze and lose Carbuncle trying to fight it. And that happen after I copied a few abilities to it. :( I recruit a Culler Dipsas to fill the slot, using up most of my credits. Python's group was Solid with Last Defense, which proved to be very annoying. I ended up deciding to kill him because I didn't have many credits. I find a large corpse encounter later. I don't remember, are those supposed to always be Asleep? Because this one was Panicked. I managed to beat it with some difficulty.
Back at Anomaly 1, I fight an Impact/Body Titan's Fist Wraith. The only notable part of this fight was a Gluttonous Zombie with Consume Vigor. I also encounter a Dark/Buff Crown of Glory Wraith named Fred. With a Fire build for so reason. Which meant that most of it's demons had Fire resistance. I end up having to run away.
Anomaly 2: Artemis dies because I underestimate how much damage Gis can do. I linked with a Ruhin later. On the topic of negotiations, is it possible to make Leadership be considered a melee ability for their purpose? Because most demon who like Buff abilities and can request them aren't good frontliners. I end up almost failing that link. I later encounter and kill Zaji. Decide to get Vigorous. After 1 more easy fight, I encounter Maderva. The fight starts of well, but then I lose Dryad because I didn't expect Maderva to be capable of hitting for 21 damage in one hit. I do manage to defeat her, however.
Anomaly 3: I recruit an Aithir and a Fotia, and I'm finally able to replace my Raicho. :) I end up encountering Paracelsus last. I do manage to wear down his SP, but his team outpaced me in HP, and I was unable to focus fire on him thanks to level geometry. So, after using a few item, I run away.
For my post Anomaly team modifications, I give Dipsas Bask and Diehard, removing Flash (I don't think having both it and Acid Wash will be good for SP. Diehard is there mostly because I wasn't sure what to take and a safety net seemed like a good idea.) and also give Ruhin Rabblerouser. I'm saving the remaining credits to see what development opportunities I will get. I'm thinking of either using Headless' abilities to make a newer frontliner or making a Magic based tank, which seems like an idea that has potential in a Fire build. Might also be a good idea to replace Aithir with something else, seeing how most of my team's weaknesses are elemental.
From what I've experienced so far, Fire builds can be ridicilously good at sustaining SP against groups. Which means that they have more problems against Uniques and Heroes than most builds.
Even with the amount of mess ups I made, this run seems to be going good.

Oh, yes. Currently Focus Fire simply doesn't work on pacifists... though I suppose it is odd that even if they wanted to attack, they attack something else. :) I'll add it to the bug list, but it probably won't be fixed in the Brand build.

Re: Headless dance routine, not sure what happened there. :( If you catch it again, don't forget to save off your game data to send me, it helps a ton with rare AI bugs. :D I'll try to find it myself too, but a lot of little things can go into AI decision making, so reproducing AI bugs can be rough.

Larger corpse encounters can spawn with Sleep or Panic, chosen at random. :)

Leadership works with ranged physical attacks too, btw. Most Buffers still aren't likely to be great at those either, but at least they'll be safe. :) More to the point: it'd be difficult to special case a specific ability into not being chosen for those sorts of requests (well, difficult unless I just want to hardcode it, but I try not to do that.)

Yeah, a Fire build done with a focus on sustain can be *very* good at it... HP too, not just SP. :) Shock has more straightforward ways to get SP, but they're usually self only, Fire can share the benefits a bit better.

A bit bumpy, but it does sound like things're going well. :) Thanks for the feedback and report, and good luck post-Anomaly!
