So, for free actions, do they end your turn and immediately give you another, updating brands, or continue your turn, keeping brands as they are?
I'm still having trouble getting used to brands – I have some trouble managing them, and, I think, I could've continued this run if I knew how to use them better.
Anomaly 1: The fights didn't give me trouble. Took quite a bit of damage from Poison. I gave Lifegiver Ogre Icy Hammer, Tormentor and Reshape, removing Heavy Slash. Also gave Vikhor Bloodlust. Fought an easy corpse encounter.
Anomaly 2: I gather enough credits to give myself Icy Hammer. Run into Ludoc afterwards. I didn't think to check his level, which was higher than mine. He also had better brands overall. It started of well, but then I started to run out of SP, and he outlasted me this way. :(
My whole problem right now is that I don't know how many credits I should devote to brands and how many to transmutations.

Re: My characters and YASDs

Postby SummerSnowman » Mon Mar 25, 2019 3:35 am

In my runs, I barely use fusions and brands in the early game since they're either costly or weak so it's mostly a waste of credits. Instead, I liberally use Copy Ability and give good abilities like Darts or Wards to my demons. I also try to save those abilities for the late game, so I'll often wander around with 8-skilled demons even if it's a useless ability like Toxic Vapor on Artemis. That's probably why I got richer in the new build, since Copy Ability became free. :D Brands in the early game are really weak though, and they'll get better later on, so I never spend any credits on them. Usually, the demons come with decent brands so I don't even have the need for it.

Free actions end your turn, so Brands will update in response.

Generally speaking, I try to save Branding for demons I expect to keep around awhile, or who will be key members of the team. Other than enemy summoners and heroes, most of your opponents don't have good Brands, so there is not high pressure to keep everyone Branded outside of those encounters. I try to wait for Brands that have drawbacks I can live with, rather than using purely positive ones, since purely positive ones tend to be pretty weak.

The exception of course is if I find a very powerful Brand that needs a very specific build of demon to use due to its restrictions. In those cases, I will try (with mixed success) to make a demon to use the Brand. This is very expensive (since you're basically using a bunch of Copy Ability to get something ready for Apply Brand), but when it works, it can be amazing. :D

Summer: You didn't actually mean Copy Ability is *free* right? :D Just cheaper? :P

Oh right, I meant Copy Saver, since it seems like costs became 25% cheaper. :? :)

The problem is, last time I didn't spend any credits on brand early on, I got slaughtered. I was mainly copying abilities. Might've been just bad luck. Also, I like trying to get a Lifegiver early on for abilities. Very few of them are bad.
Got a bit distracted again, as you might guess. :roll:
Orb of Power with Spite start this time.
Interestingly, the first time I gathered 6 demons, five of them were Freybugs. I balanced it out by the end of first floor.
I had Tower 1 ½ spawn. I gave myself magic and cunning raising brand. Also gave Homunculus strength+ SP cost- brand and Tormentor, planing to have him do SP support. Zaltys and I got Shocking Aura.
In Tower 1 ½ I have Zaltys go on preservation. I replace it with Headless, giving Hou Sho Lucky Aid and Shocking Aura. And then it gets preserved too. :x
I found Vikhor's Sanctum at Tower 3, but didn't want to mess with it. Honestly, it might actually be worse than Anomaly.
At Tower 4 I got to lavel 5 and took S.E.P.I.
I'm starting to get my build out toghether. :) I got Judge's Mien now, and had Shocking Aura for a while. My Gandayah is a pretty good healer, but, sadly, didn't get Healing Charm. Hou Sho is general support. It has Pyre Rite, which can be very good. I've got Headless, which is always good this early. Also have Homunculus, Freybug and Sankai, for abilities and modifiers mostly.

Re: My characters and YASDs

I'll go with it was bad luck for now: the AI would have to get *very* lucky to end up with excellent Brands that it can actually use: more often than not, it just does the best it can with what it gets. The player usually will have an advantage if they're using Brands wisely, but only a very slight disadvantage if they have none at all.

What do you mean you "balanced it out"? :D Five Freybugs was perfectly fine! (At least it would be according to my roommate.)

Vihkor's Sanctum is definitely one of the deadlier early floors: Modified Raichos and a whirling sawblade with (mostly) good physical defenses can be trouble for many low level groups, especially if the Raichos happen to get a good modifier / ability roll. Not sure I could agree it's worse than Anomaly, which is home to plenty of evils itself, but it's possible. :D

Seems like you're off to a good start as you enter Anomaly. :) Thanks for the report!

Re: My characters and YASDs

Postby SummerSnowman » Tue Apr 02, 2019 5:48 am

My early-games have recently been pretty reliable, but I have been using strength instead of magic...and I do indeed die much more with magic builds. Of course, I've also been using the same starts every time: Crown of Glory with Heal Wounds. Perhaps Soothe could help a lot in keeping your party alive while you let your other demons do the damage? You could also copy Swiftness to yourself just to enable easy retreats, allowing you to kill some demons in a pack, run, and finish them off later on. Also, Glacial Shell is really good against many Anomaly demons, so taking advantage of the Alma there is something I usually do. All these are safety buffers to let you gauge the risk of a fight and let you flee easier if needed. Good luck on your run :)

The problem with Vikhor's Sanctum is that it appears earlier and it's unique is much harder to escape from. I guess you could try to link with him just to force him to flee, but I'm not sure if it's safe.
Personally, I don't think Soothe is good. It can only target allies with more than half of their MaxHP, which seems like a big downside. Swiftness is one of those abilities that I know is good, but I never end up using it because I end up liking other abilities more. Never really tried out Glacial Shell.
Anomaly 1: I decided to start by gathering credits for further modifications. Copied Rabblerouser to Hou Sho. It got preserved later against Asrais. That group was the last one.
Python's Sanctum: Sankai get preserved because Asrai in melee with it got killed, opening line of fire for another one. :x I use a pair of Pure Stones to get Hou Sho into fighting shape. In the next fight, I manage to recruit an Aspis, sacrifising Freybug. I already copied Tormentor to Homunculus, and I can make do without it's modifier. I encounter Python afterwards. Was fairly sure that I couldn't complete his link, so I just killed him. I also recruit a Dipsas, fusing a foul Hou Sho to free up space. Not the best fusion I could've done, but I had to make do with what I had. :roll: I clear up the flor and check a few corpses. Also check a few corpses at Anomaly 1, getting a good chunk of credits. I pass around a few abilities: Aspis gains Flesh Rot (Hou Sho got it from Vile) and Tormentor, Hou Sho gains Poisonous. Headless got Protector.
Anomaly 2: I find Zaji. Hou Sho gets preserved because I took a risk, thinking that it will recover enough HP before the next hit. I decided to copy Tormentor and Flash Heal to myself to try and prevent similar situations in the future. Aspis also gets preserved in the last fight of the floor. :x I decide to use a Pure Gem to recover all 3 of my demons that had MaxHP damage. I checked a few corpses, getting a few credits as well as High Voltage and Yellow Whisper. I'm also starting to update my demon's brands. For now, I gave Aspis a brand that boosts cunning if it's last ability was Pierce.
Anomaly 3: Had a few annoying fights with Aithers. Found a glyph hiding under credits. Is that supposed to happen? Later, I encounter Paracelsus. The fight starts of well, with him getting Shocked 3 or 4 times in a row. By the time I had to swap out two demons, he swapped out one and had another preserved. And then I noticed that my Judge's Mien weren't delaying Aeras after it used Emit Sparks. Is that ability not considered to be damaging because of a bug? It definitely seems like it should be considered damaging. Anyway, that advantage I got near the beginning was enough to overwhelm him. :) Didn't decide to take any of his demons. I then check most corpses. Found an Orb of Power Wraith named Aciel. It's party looked nasty, so I decided to run away. Also fought a big demon group. I was interested in recruiting a Gremlin from it, but I got badly injured and decided to play it safe and kill it.
My party is shaping up well. Gandayah is a good healer (having Soothe instead of Healing Charm is a drawback, in my opinion), Hou Sho buffs, heals and inflicts status effects, Headless is a strong frontliner with buffs, Aspis inflicts a lot of Poison and DEF Down, Dipsas is an evasive fronliner with OFF Down and Homunculus gives a good modifier in fusions. So, I still would like one newer demon. Preferably, it has no Light/Ice weaknesses and can become SP support.

Yeah, Vikhor is definitely tough to escape from. Other enemies may have cooldown-limited movement abilities, but he has a passively high movement speed, which is much harder to deal with.

Soothe can be very effective on high Magic characters who are healing high Strength/Vitality targets who won't drop to 1/2 in a single turn. In such a setup, it's basically discounted healing that can be sustained longer than using other methods. It will however, trip over itself constantly if you don't have Magic (i.e.: can't keep up with the damage) and/or the target isn't durable enough (too much incoming damage or too easy to push them to 50% in a single turn.) Notably, it also works considerably better in tandem with passive healing sources such as Regen and Guilt, and the like, which can help keep targets above the line.

Multiple items on one cell is fine: there's no pressing reason to not pick up items.

I've noted the Judge's Mien + Emit Sparks bug, I'll take a look soon, I think I know what might be going wrong. :)

Good luck on the post-Anomaly phase of your run, and thanks for the report. :D
