Re: 1st game

Yeah, the game is supposed to be playable without currency upgrades, but it does mean you'd have to be more careful / picky on your spending. In particular, Restore becomes a luxury (since it isn't factored in much when I balance how many credits to give out.)

Re: 2nd game

Yeah, the wards/blocks need to get changed at some point. Some day in the far-flung future I probably need to do a "purge lame abilities" pass and see what's what... but there's always more fun/exciting or more tedious-but-necessary stuff to do. :P

Mirror Chime is intended to be a semi-functional revive :D More than a bit awkward, and it won't work for most uniques, but in some cases it can be far cheaper/easier than Restore, provided you can manage the fight.

I was pretty happy with the Buruburu link myself :D Every once in awhile I *know* I got something right, and that was one of those.

Enemy Lure/Trouble Chime don't take your party weaknesses into account. :) I promise. :D

Played a game on my new(ish) windows desktop to get back in the feel of things for the eventual matter build. Runs much faster than it did on my 9 year old mac laptop.

Ended up dying to Raiju when, instead of upgrading to quick-summon to get out of a sticky stunlock situation, I accidentally Enemy Lured myself and brought down Baleful Hobs and Eloko on my face and then I ended up dyin due to failing an Eloko link instead of spending my huge hoard of money for a revive/recycle escape plan.

This was one of the runs where I had too many uniques with a vague notion of making cool (non-unique) fusions with them later, only to usually end up Recycling them 10 levels later. Not a very thrilling run, but I went to the effort of finding the hidden directories on my new os so here's the dump anyway

:D I'm glad you have access to a newer compy. I have worried for awhile I might lose you if I ever had to update Unity versions again (such as, say, to get rid of/ diminish that awful splash screen the version I'm currently on uses...)

Sorry the Matter build's coming along so slowly. :( I was definitely spoiled in the past, both by my period of full time development, and also by my periods of part-time development but at much less mentally challenging jobs. I did finally begin making progress on the character art, but I don't have enough done yet to bother posting formally.

I managed to die to Zaji, wew. His arrows just seemed to be doing a lot more damage than usual.

After that I won though.
Image

A Hand of Light/Guard Slash Crown of Glory that slowly moved into, then away from status-melee and into a buffer/debuffer role. Alert or distract bythemselves feels lame, but together you really do notice enemies missing. Also mummy soul armor is pretty nice.

I both lost demons and made silly 'well whatever' fusions at the end so my winning party isn't indicative of what I actually used, which is why I decided to just win rather than leave a ghost. Having a party of Bronze Offering'd Jotun arbitrarily fused with Leib Olmai is a whatever fight

I made some interesting stuff in the early/midgame- like this chaos
Image
a Dancing Dipsas (which was too low level to survive, sadly) and a Chthonic Tuofei that had 2 ice moves and a bunch of fire moves which turned out to be pretty solid. Also a volcanic Manananananaananananangal which was ok but probably needed to ditch slow

Speaking of solid, I ded well with a movement based Ogre
Image
that I imagined to just be rolling around in a sphere of bladed ice, hence the name

Found a weird Akateko in Turdak's that worked decently well
Image
and a random action shot- an aketeko with wild frenzy must just flick madly with alternating fingers at massive speed, what an image
Image

(and here's a picture of a possible bug with avalanche that I think has been mentioned
Image
but the real gamewinner was the combination of WIld Frenzy and Crippler from a Hulking Tuofei that got applied to a very mean Oni
Image

A substantial portion of the game was me doing buffs and debuffs with an angel healer from Rush's and a Unicorn from a ghost while the Oni beat everything to death solo. It was a very powerful frontliner, though the finickyness with Wild Frenzy positioning made hallway battles awkward. It woulda been nice to get Refresh on the Oni since it usually stayed at 100SP, but I couldn't bear to drop any moves.

The transition to lategame had me fleeing from Breska, Tremane, a ghost or two, and a relatively normal pack of something that just wasn't going well, so about 3 floors skipped. Charm got hairy in a few places and killed off a few demons, but I tend to not like reviving demons anymore unless they're my only healer. What if Revive Demon was a full relic upgrade? Oh, I remember one ghost I had to flee from- it was, appropriately. called Don't Fight It and its thing was charisma and ego theft and alluring gaze and that was double trouble because Ego Theft was stopping me from buffing with my cries!

I managed to kill Lioth before all the demons got Consumed, which was a first or maybe a second.

Hacked out a consecutive win a few hours later, of the ezpz sudden chill nuke sort
Was another crown of glory but after finding deep chill and headwind from corpses, I decided to make a str/ice hybrid from whatever skills i got from making an icesworn ghoul,
Image
but chilling blast lent itself better to full magic, and this time around I made heavy use of winterkill and spellbinder
Image

had a lot of lazy/sleep deprived play towards the end and revived a lot of demons until the end, where I just sorta wanted to see how many Credits I could rack up while still stomping with sudden chill(75,967), though I kept a handy array of other damage around
Image


I did have an amusing moment where I used a Leib-Olmai's link and the heroism from it twice with peace offerings to kill Tremane, as he was shrugging off my demons otherwise

Hooray for winning :D

Oh, hi Solaire! But you're not in the right game :P

Alert and/or Distract can also be cute with a high Agility party, but I'm not convinced anyone builds those. :P I think I did succeed at making it better back with the attenuation changes and all, but it still isn't quite at the level of Strength, Magic, Vitality, or Cunning.

You do love Wild Frenzy. :D I would think of an Aketeko with it sort of E-Hondaing (is that a verb) in random directions though. :D

That one at least isn't an Avalanche bug: two targets are being hit with two effects each that they are Immune to: Ice damage and Chill. An actual Ice ability (which Avalanche isn't, it's Impact) would bounce only one each because it'd bounce at the ability level, not the effect level. (TLDR: I should never have hacked in dual-element abilities but it's way too late to go back now, so they're always going to be a little weird in small ways.)

...that is a ridiculous Oni. Even with crap Cunning, it has so many chances to land three very ugly conditions that it is probably bound to land at least one. And yeah, I don't know what I'd have dropped for Refresh either... MAYBE Malleable, but at that point you're teaching him to send healers more SP to replace the more SP they have to use healing him without Malleable, soooo ... yeah, I think he was stuck.

I have actually been considering switching demons over to a variant of "Relic Preservation"... that being, if a demon reaches 0 HP, it gets auto-unsummoned and takes a *massive* hit to MaxHP (initial thoughts: 50-75%!) If MaxHP drops to 0 from that, the demon is well and truly dead. Under that paradigm, Revive Demon probably would become a relic upgrade (and likely, a starter for Faithful Heart?) But, given how slow I'm already being with the Matter build I probably shouldn't go on too much about something not even in that :P

Ego Theft is one of those weird one-offs :D There is, unless I'm forgetting something, no other "cooldown drain" effect in the game. :D Cute to see that side-effect actually mattered for once.

75k credits is kinda insane. :P I would give Score for credits, but I worry that'd just make people feel like they shouldn't spend them (which is kind of already an issue.. something else I might try soon is accelerating how quickly costs / drops go up while also reducing the costs a bit... i.e.: strongly, strongly encourage you to use them promptly... but I still want you to have at least *some* ability to save up too. It's a tricky bit of math)

Thanks for the report, and congrats on the wins! :D

Died to Shikome+Kuchisake on tower 23 because I wasn't paying attention to healer sp

But!

The goal of this run was to go for 2 dancers and myself +Leadership to see how fast I could go, and it was a good run

But! I never found headless so that was that.

But! I found Wild Combo, which was pretty good because I was in Raichomode so my demons got to be pretty speedy. Pariah from Accursed Slash could really rack up a lot of damage.

But then I found a Brutal/Hulking something or other with Wild Frenzy. That's when things got real. (i also bronze offering'd the early Mulassa which was neat too but this was a run where my character was the main attraction, pretty much any ol' demon did well in my party so though i lost a lot of my fancy stuff it hardly affected me.)

Wild frenzy+leadership+150% Raichospeed is madness. MADNESS. It was hard to tell just how fast everything was, but it felt pretty much like my whole party was also at 150% speed. It was like playing Demon in bulletime. I absolutely must try this again but with leadership on my demons and Haste. And using a Psychic Raicho as soul armor because when you're that fast you endure Panick and Charm for like 3 times as long IRL.

Talking about my skills a little- earlier on I had multiple forms of attack like Earth Break, a Needle Spray, etc, etc, and even some defensive stuff like mob cover and block physical. It was only once I got rid of them that I realized the true ludicrous speed Wild Frenzy+Leadership afforded me. And of course, crippler spam is amazing. If the first hit of a 3-hit combo applied hexed, the followup 2 hits were devastating. Refresh was something I only realized I should get relatively late, because bloodlust sends your SP sky high against packs of enemies in a way that Earth Break and Wild Combo doesn't.

I really like finding builds that play different, and Leadership usage definitely is a fun one. I still think the instakill Snuff Out/dreamstalker is my favorite esoteric build found so far, and I just found out Exterminate exists when i picked up a death worm so I might have to try a mass sleep/Exterminate build sometime.

This build was do doubt in part so strong due to being a crown of glory. I didn't get any money upgrades and while I had money issues early on, by the lategame I was able to fill all ability slots and make some goofy fusions. Recycle makes you able to do silly stuff sooner though, and that's really nice in case you want to have your entire team be Whirling or some silliness.

Thanks to the overwhelming offense, I got a lot of tough critters that I normally have trouble recruiting- Archangels, Oni, all those pesky 'defeat while heroic links.'

Re: Turdak's Sanctum, YASD and ramblings

Postby Ferret » Wed Nov 01, 2017 3:31 am

Well, congrats on an *almost* win anyway. :D Heck, by some standards, Tower:23 is a win anyway since people like planting uberghosts there.

:D Raicho Soul Armor huh? Ooze Soul Armor might be a viable, if later game, alternative soon. They're also 150%, completely different resistance table though. :) Probably a bit more expensive, we'll have to see how it shakes out. :)

I'm always happy when someone tries out a crazy new build and has fun times with it. There's a lot of weird stuff hiding in the ability list that I've hoped would be fun to explore, and it's neat when a new one gets trotted out for a run. :D Once Thrones* are in the game, you might have some new very late game abilities of note to play with for this... if you can survive Thrones to acquire them. To give you a hint what Thrones are about, one of their abilities is Friction Burn, a Slash/Fire Spin Slash variant. :D

(* Not in the Matter build though: Thrones are somewhere in the next set of new floors! To clarify also for non-mythology nerds: Thrones are a type of angel, not some weird new mechanic involving fancy metallic chairs. :P )

Interesting about Refresh/Bloodlust: I have expected high speed builds to usually have SP problems... but then, that was before Wombo Combo and Wombo Frenzy were added to the game. :D I don't mind it though, there are definitely higher damage things you *could* do with that speed, it's nice that there are options for managing the SP other than "just use auto attacks or boring single-target stuff".

Fun fact about Exterminate: Long long ago, Turdak had this ability. It was a bit too awful a violation of my usual "be gentle introducing new mechanics" rule though, especially since back then, it was the first encounter with "insta-kill" mechanics (yes, it technically had a condition, but Turdak and his pals never have had any trouble inflicting Body status effects on enemies.)

Thanks as always for the report, these are always interesting to read. :D

Yeah, a problem I have with dancers is that they run out of SP without bloodlust/tormentor, but their survivability is heavily compromised with them...

exterminate Turdak sounds amazing... if something like NG+ changes or harder modes ever exists, definitely unshelve that particular cruelty!

Booted up demon again for another ultimate Wild Frenzy build, was even more horrifying than the last. And much nicer to play, with Mind resistance.
Image
Image

This fellow had access to Transpose Soul to ensure I got Wild Frenzy. I found it in the wild anyway, but I was able to pick up Accursed from something-or-other and heavy-handed from python, and had plans to use it for haste later on (but found that too). I started out with the defensive titan's fist build to keep myself safe, but as my offense reached absurd levels (and my Strength provided defense) such things became irrelevant. I probably could have dropped parry too, but it was nice to have some insurance when I dove into the middle of a pack of Oni.

Accursed was much, much more dangerous than venomous. Pretty much as soon as I impacted the enemy line, they were all dead in 2-3 Wild Frenzies, and any survivors were usually some combination of Hexed and/or Stunned and/or Panicked, the latter being thanks to this guy
Image
Who I picked up when he was downscaled to level 19 from a ghost and made Fearsome on my own. He got Ball Lightning from the Anzu fusion, but since I was usualy in the way of such things, Muddle Host was the Eye-Killer's usual use of SP, and Innocence+High Levels seemed to have it work very well.

I finally beat down Mordecai and got Reprobus, though even with this very mighty build it was a dangerous link. I also got Phoenix without too much trouble, but Slenderman didn't even drop under 100HP when I tried that link. Found Bigfoot in the midst of a heroic link and beat him to death since the 'intense distrust' would probably cause bigfoot to reject the link, I thought.

I made some attempts to get leadership boosting my turns but Wild Frenzy doesn't play well with fellow melee combatants so I wasn't too peeved when
Image
Turdak died as usual- having high speed and good resistances is just too harsh on HP and honestly I killed things so fast on my own that increasing the speed of my allies was pretty irrelevant. So then I tried having ranged support, which was nice, though I did 1-hit wild frenzy this nice Hunter Lilim I picked up (or maybe I damaged her and then the enemy AI focus-fired her to death, it's hard to say at those speeds when you skip through turns)
Image

In the end, I ended up walking around with myself as the only real damage dealer, because that was really all that was necessary. Healers and buffers kept me hale and hasty as I demolished everything.
Image
Though i eventually traded this angel out for unicorns and Ninkasi, it gives a good idea of what the buffer/healers looked like. The Radian unicorn was thanks to a Radiant Mummy from a ghost on the last floor- the mummy being the very last enemy I fought.

Towards the end, I had currency burning a hole in my pocket so I made Brewmaster Reprobus and the Inspire he got seemed perfect- my Wild Frenzy would give my support an extra turn, the support would give me an extra turn, and under the effects of 200% speed with haste, the enemy squad would eat around 200+ power+massive str buff+off up of attacks every turn, untold Pariah triggers, extra damage from Hex, and pretty much nothing could come close to threatening me unless I rolled several 1-hit Frenzies.

Probably the most powerful melee build I've seen. Without ludicrous speed and human guidance though, it's pretty feeble- my Mirror Chime ghost was pretty pathetic, so I just went ahead and won, especially since the matter build will be clearing ghosts anyway, right?

Oh , and a possible minor bug
Image
Going into relic upgrade when needing to delete a demon, it seemed stuck and unable to escape out, but then I looked away to an internet tab and returned to normal. Could very well have just been nothing, or lag

Re: Turdak's Sanctum, YASD and ramblings

Postby Ferret » Sat Nov 11, 2017 1:25 am

Well, my days of worrying about melee are coming to a middle. :D Though, if (almost) all Strength is the only way to do it tat-wise, that might be a problem. :D Then again, Vitality-heavy "hit me" builds were one of the original memes, even if maybe not strictly "melee" by some possible definitions?

Anyway, on to what you actually posted. :P

Yeah, Pariah got a pretty good buff in group combat from the great combat speed up's effect on status changes. Also notable: Unlike Venomous, it doesn't have diminishing returns or an upper limit: if you can get more hits and/or have more targets, it just keeps getting better. :) Of course, with more targets is implied you're in more danger, so I'm okay with that. Kinda what it's meant for. :D

It almost hurts seeing Ball Lightning in a screenshot with Shock Blast and Cluster Bolt. :P "Babby's first lightning sprite" vs. "Hey, maybe this guy almost knows how to make an icon" :D But yes, Innocence makes for a scary nuker/status mage, and it's always nice when the ghost system gives you a fun surprise. :D

Re: Bigfoot and the heroic link, you are correct. A "Spread Distrust" result takes place before the new link if you switch links, and can prevent the new link from forming (You even get a unique message, something like "Bigfoot rejects the link!" or something like that.)

Yeah, at 140% Speed, Turdak is basically in Raicho territory already, and they at least have craptastic resistances to cover for their high Speed + low Vitality. With Turdak's somewhat better resistances, he ends up very.. fragile.

One melee + three supports is actually how I originally figured going melee would go in Demon, way back in my original ponderings. :D One of my very first thoughts about Demon was picturing a low-level melee dude running around a dungeon with three pixies (in this imagining, pixies were combination Faerie/Freybugs, and debuffs stacked like in traditional SMT, so basically all his enemies ended up massively ACC/EVD down'd while the faeries healed any damage he managed to take despite that while carving them up.)

Re: Healers: did you actually not use Absolution, or was it just missing on that Angel?

I'm actually really happy it sounds like the AI managed to use Inspire correctly. Abilities of the "I give up X to give you X" type have always been a pain in the neck for me to get right. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure Inspire and its cousins still have problems, but I'm happy when I hear about one working properly. :D

And yes, oh yes, the Matter build will *absolutely* be a ghost wipe. :D

Huh.. I'll see if I can repro that bug, should be easy enough if there's nothing else tricky about it. I admit I haven't anticipated people upgrading a relic during too many demon dialogue... I wonder what happens if you upgrade capacity in that circumstance... I should check!

Congrats on the win, and thanks as always for the report! :D
