I died early but I'm still proud of this run lol

Postby Geoffreylikespie » Sun Nov 10, 2019 12:47 am

So I just ran a run and I only got to Anomaly: 2 but I feel that I did quite well until I screwed it up in the end.

Instead of going for the regular route of getting a variety of decent demons, I instead focused on improving my main three: Lifegiver Gandayah (I was lucky for this to be my first encounter because I love Gandayah, and obviously a healer), Angel (an all-around ranged support build with healing and damage), and Dipsas (serves surprisingly well as a tank!). I had gone through all the side areas feeling pretty confident and even though I wasn't really planning Angel and Dipsas to be any certain way they were working surprisingly well for me. Against all odds we got Python on our side by taking out the goons then retreating, and I had aspirations to fuse Python onto Dipsas which would have been made him such a tanky boi. We beat Zaji too which I was astounded by! I already feel like I get brands pretty well which is also very nice.

Then came the mistake. I ran into an Ooze for the first time ever, and thinking long ahead I saw that it was just a follow mission and decided against better judgement to save my bronze offering. Ooze didn't have any speed buffs to my knowledge, but it was still a bit faster than me (maybe it was a brand?). Instead of cutting my losses, I saw that I had two wind cards and kept up the pursuit, although honestly I probably still would have lost sight with ~2-3 turns left. I let my allies take care of the Nero it came in with, so they were trailing far behind. Then Ooze led me straight into a pack of Fotia, which started pummeling me into the ground. I again acted against good judgement and kept up the chase instead of backing out to survive. Separated from the allies that have been carrying me and being hit by four Fotias at once, I died very quickly.

It was a really dumb way to die lol. I guess I've learned to not be stingy with my bronze offerings and to never underestimate high-level Demons, even if they're an average-speed pursuit mission. Hopefully my ghost is strong enough with Dipsas, Angel, and Lifegiver Gandayah to thoroughly vibe check summoners running around Anomaly: 2.

After a several-month-long break due to school obligations, social obligations, and just the need to take a break, this was a wonderful re-introduction back into the game for me! I hope to see some of you wonderful souls in the Tower! ;^)

Re: I died early but I'm still proud of this run lol

Any run that reaches Anomaly is pretty good. :) More than 90% of games end before that!

I'm a little surprised Dipsas turned out to be a good tank. :D They are a bit high level for that part of the game, which may have helped. Maybe the high Agility did the job too? In any case, it's always fun to hear of a new use for a demon, especially if it's unconventional.

Oozes have a base Speed of 150% :( No speed buffs beyond that, but +50% is pretty huge! I can understand wanting to save the Offering if you thought you could catch it though: Offerings are really rare, and the only thing better than 1 overleveled pal would be 2, and you probably wouldn't have a chance at capturing the next one normally.

I'm glad you're back and getting the hang of the new Brand system too. :D Enjoy those and the new upgrade system, and I'll see about adding some new Tower floors soon. :) Thanks for the report, and good luck on your next run. :D

I got lucky (again) and did even better!

THE GENERAL STORY OF THE RUN IF YOU'RE INTERESTED:
Code: Select all

I was blessed with a gold offering, and I used the it on Nokken (a new demon to me!!  :D ) immediately, who I felt I could not possibly convince to my side. And then in another sanctum I met Shoggoth! Luckily I have experience with Shoggoth and I had lots of unnecessary Demons so I was able to feed him until he joined. So this time I was lucky enough to have two over-leveled demons in conjunction with I think the best iteration of Lifegiver Gandayah I've ever had (which is saying a lot given how it's basically my staple). We ran into huge trouble in Anzu's Sanctum where I was hoping to grab Dragon Soul for the first brand I had, then almost died fighting Anzu regularly but still killed the deity. I picked up a second gold offering after that, and then (still in Anzu's Sanctum) we met a pack of Tuofei and Bmola and I was on the verge of death, like with my MaxHP hugely hit too. I reluctantly used the second gold offering (such a blessing) on a Tuofei and spent my pile of cash giving myself Triad Ward and Mist Shroud. By using a corner as cover and letting Nokken and Shoggoth take care of them while I gorged pure stones allowed me to come out alive. I went through all of Anomaly (except Our Sanctum11!1!!, which didn't have a portal to it), but I had to retreat from Ludoc cause his team was going to destroy me. Back in the Tower proper I almost died killing Charliss about five levels under (although Nokken and Shoggoth were significantly higher-leveled), using Flame Glyphs as a last resort while my entire team was in the red and just barely winning (Shoggoth killed him with a hit after two successive Flame Glyphs on very low health already). It was even scarier fighting Lioth, but we someone won that too! Nokken (and I) got rekt but there were plenty of Demons to fight in the potential recovery period. That period didn't really come though, as on the same floor a summoner corpse released demons that made very quick work of me while I was already at about half max HP. I got cocky after killing Charliss and Lioth and was obliterated, even though I had enough demons and credits that I probably could have convinced the Dipsas and Chindi to my side, but alas.



STRATEGIES:
Code: Select all

Overall, one of my best runs if not the best. I made a conscious effort to get an ice, fire, and electric ranged attack so I would have coverage which turned out really useful. Diversifying your human's abilities is some of the best advice I can give and I can't believe it took me this long to truly figure that out. Lifegiver Gandayah did excellently with three anti-effect auras and three healing options on top of Tireless and Vigorous. Chthonic Shoggoth is an absolute beast of a tank, serving as the only real melee fighter most of the time, and he didn't take noticeable damage until about halfway through the Lioth fight (that switch is when Gandayah got overwhelmed and we all started to lose health). I have no idea what my plan was for Nokken, but its trio of Matter moves were working beautifully. I combined that with Tireless and Vigorous so it could keep wrecking Demons from afar, then Low Profile because even then it still inevitably would move to melee with SP gone and I needed to shoot past it. Added a couple scary auras cause it's Cunning was high enough. I was hoping to eventually make it Charged just to get rid of the Electricity weakness, but that sadly didn't pan out. I also was thinking way ahead of making Druj Nasu a partial healer, and I have no what I was planning with Turdak. Overall, putting more effort into three Demons, diversifying the moves my Summoner has available, and having a Lifegiver Gandayah clicks very well with me, although I do admit the luck of multiple over-leveled Demons certainly got me this far.



Sorry for the wall of text lol. This will probably have to be my last run for a while as I'm already heading back to school, but my oh my am I excited to jump back in over December! Thank you for creating such an excellent game!

Two Gold Offerings! :P Someone won the lottery. :)

Our Sanctum!11! doesn't always appear. It used to have a high chance when I first introduced it, but I reduced it to normal odds sometime later. If you get Python's Sanctum, you'll never get Our Sanctum in the same run.

Corpse demons claimed another summoner, it seems. :) I've had lots of good ideas over the years, but I think corpses were one of the better ones. :D I wanted something like "traps" in the game, but most roguelike traps are just frustrating random-feeling penalties. Corpses manage to have the same effect, but (I think) without the frustrating feeling, since you opt in to them and there's a chance of really good rewards for taking the chance. (It probably also helps that no result is entirely bad: even if you get the demon ambush, it's still a chance for XP and recruits. :D )

I wouldn't sell yourself short on this run: out of depth demons certainly helped, but it sounds like you're learning some useful strategies and tactics. :D Good luck when you return in December, and I'm glad you're enjoying Demon so much. :D

Postby Geoffreylikespie » Tue Dec 10, 2019 5:11 am

I have returned and am better than ever! As a reward for finishing my first final this quarter I decided I would play a run of Demon until I died, and I did really well!

I decided to try a Titan's Fist build since I saw a ghost a while back that was a lot further along than I expected, but I did a tanky run where I do all the healing myself through health-stealing abilities. My first run went really well since I had no plans and was kind of just playing it by ear. After I got out of Anomaly though the packs of Demons tore me apart, so this run (my second run) I focused on my health-stealing melee attack (this time Wraith/Shade Touch replaced Leech Touch), a ranged attack (Shock Dart/Arrow), and a huge AOE attack (Stellar/Lunar Nova). I got this upgrades using Revelation, and I happened to run into a Titan's Fist-friendly Brand, and I picked up two essences, so I was very well set. I courted some Demons and failed to Court others, then I decided to tango with Slenderman and that was not a good idea, so now I am dead. (Honestly I wouldn't recommend even going near him without Mind immunity... those Charms broke me.)

(CODEX SPOILERS!!!)

Anyways, I made huge Codex progress, with Archangel, Ooze, Gorgon, Nuppeppo, Abatwa, Ikiryo, Umdhlebi, Pelesit, Charun, Power, Virtue, and even the mighty deity Tlaloc himself now in the books!

Congrats on finishing up a final. :D Congrats for a pretty good Demon run too, Tower:18's not bad at all. :D

Oof. Yeah, Slenderman's high enough level to have some ability to pierce even Aux Guard III's boosts. :( Mind Immunity is one answer, but in such situations, even a "solo" build can benefit from having a single summoned ally intended to help smooth over a problem of that sort. If you can't score Mind Immunity yourself for example, a demon with Mind Immunity and Calm can serve much the same purpose. It'll drop your stats a bit while he's out, but some well-crafted temporary allies can be a viable option for handling certain scenarios as a full Aux character.

Sounds like you made some nice progress on your Codex. :D Of course, that's about to get a bit bigger here with the next build, but nice progress is still nice progress. :)

Thanks for the report, and good luck in the Tower *and* on the rest of your finals. :D

It's been a long while since I posted a death post (I think), but I think I'll follow greattuna's lead and turn this thread into my own YASD for any interesting runs I have.

This time I had a pretty decent strategy going, using Titan's Fist and a healer with a platter of magical abilities.

After reading DiedToANero's thread, I decided to do some preparation for an end game I haven't even gotten to yet and have a path for Mind Immunity. I planned to wait until I encounter a Mindbender or Adept demon, fuse it onto Aithir, and then soul armor Aithir onto myself. (I had Auraward and a fire-weakness-removing brand already on to prepare for this, and Fire, Ice, and Electricity touches so that I could activate Auraward forever if needed, whereas the four other ability slots would be for multi-target magical abilities. Until very recently I had my first one in Punish, but I ended up deleting in a bargain for my life with an Acheri!)

Then I ran into Turdak's sanctum, expecting nothing too difficult… but oh my gosh Wraith Gaze on Acheri makes them so much more dangerous! I don't think I'd fought them yet since the ability pass, so I came in expecting them to be not too bad with just Infection Boost or something, then I look up after (easily) killing Turdak and I'm at 19/19 HP! :o I do like the change, but it really did cost me this time xD

In retrospect, I probably should have just fused the Aithir onto myself early! There's plenty of other good mind immunity candidates for soul armor later on (Baleful Zagh, Sainted Charlie, etc.), and I got super lucky in the first few floors so I might have had enough credits floating around to do it! Even if it cost a lot later to get mind immunity I might have actually gotten that far xD

Also, thinking about it, I don't know if Mindbender/Adept Aithir is actually a good soul armor option long-term, even with Auraward. Sure I'd be a magical tank and the five immunities is very very tempting, but I'm thinking the massive HP drop turn me into papier-mâché against physical fighters.

Oh well, I guess. I had a pretty lucky run but this strategy does seem feasible. Reading the forum all these years and incorporating the advice has definitely improved my skill with this game!

Turdak's is probably the hardest early game sanctum in my opinion. The MaxHP drains are brutal at that level. I've definitely lost many runs in there. I think the Aithir Soul Armor cost something like 19000 credits at that level. I personally have never been able to find that much early into a run, which is why I didn't even bother with Soul Armor on my first win. It would be worth it if you could pull it off though.

:D Acheri definitely benefitted from the previous build's pass on adding new abilities to old demons. They went from being more or less a support debuffer to actually somewhat dangerous on their own. At least it is "only" a Gaze ability, so they can't spam it, and they don't have any built in methods for boosting Presence cooldown recovery.

Physical threats are definitely worth keeping in mind when considering anti-magic Soul Armor setups. There's pretty much always some sort of level-appropriate in your face big beef group somewhere on the encounter charts, and the later ones can be very nasty indeed with their various variants of charge-to-stun-then-smack-you-silly strategy. The later groups containing Powers are in particular infamous for bringing particularly fragile summoners immediately into preservation territory. With Titan's Fist, you probably wouldn't be in danger of that like a non-Fist summoner might, but you could still start the fight seriously damaged.

"All these years" you say... I admit, sometimes even I forget it has been as long as it has been. :) The forums have been up for 6-7 years, but the I've been working on the game more like 7-8 (since there was a fair bit of work done before the first public releases, no surprise there probably.) I'm glad the forum has been useful to you and others over the years though. :D

That aside though, Turdak's not a bad stop for a run: anything that gets past Anomaly is always a good run. :D Thanks for the report, and good luck on your next run. :)
