died on the last floor, adding some much needed ghosts, but not technically a 'ghost win'
Image
The build came together around Anomaly, but it really took off once I added Haste and the Gaudia miracle into the build. With 150% base speed, mobility and swiftness, and then haste, I felt like I got to make about 5 steps or attacks for every one the enemy did, and once I had Aux power, those attacks were extremely powerful. Even before that, I easily captured pretty much every unique who had a 'defeat' me clause. Reprobus gave some trouble due to Mordecai's crippling and panicking, but once I was fully online Odun and Phoenix went down in a flash. I would have even given myself good odds at taking down Slenderman. I also almost went for a Ghost-Shock instead of a spin-slash, but I was getting in trouble with Ghost-pierce type movement when I was using regular Ghost Pierce occasionally (though occasionally it was helpful too so eh, I think I shoulda gone with ghost shock just for fun). The one thing I was missing was Leadership from Headless (failing a Kasha link gave distrust, alas) but it would have been overkill, honestly. I dropped Evade Step so I'd get hit more and proc Juggernaut more, and I think that's the right move for 'dancer' builds, to have either evade step+defenses OR juggernaut, but not both, going all in on defense or offense.

I feel like the miracles might be a little too fast to recover now especially if you put it on a few demons- felt like pretty much evry fight took place with max buffs. But then again I did have dedicated buffers so it's hard to say.
Image

As you might expect, the only thing that could finally kill me was me, dying to status-spam against my own ghost chime on the last floor. Some fights that exploited my Body (druj nasu) or Mind(incubi) vulnerability were often sketchy as well. If I had gone for Artificial Raicho armor I probably would have had to suicide (and had a much easier time through the tower in general) but then again, the maxHP hit woulda been rough. Another easy way to survive would have been Eternal Glory, naturally, but I forgot.
My own debuffer-matter-specialist was what ultimately killed me, but the ooze was also an occasionally useful opening debuffer for fights too.

I'll put more specific brand-thoughts in the dedicated thread.

Re: Turdak's Sanctum, YASD and ramblings

Postby Ferret » Wed Mar 13, 2019 12:42 pm

Move-attack builds tend to get *really* powerful once they have access to every possible Speed enhancement. That reminds me, I still need to add Thrones to the game...

Ghost Shock could potentially be crazy, but that would rely on being able to trigger the Shocks reliably, which would mean either more Cunning or finding some room in ability slots for Shock chance boosting abilities. You'd probably end up less damaging, but given how many chances you'd have to land Shock, you might end up being almost as damaging *and* with the ability to lock down multiple enemies per turn. :D

I purposefully went a little light on the buff/debuff miracle cooldowns, in part because the AI on using them is always going to be a bit shaky, but there might be room for a small bit of nerfing there if needed. I'm not convinced it is needed yet, but I'm keeping an eye on them for sure. That said.. that you the buff Miracle that useful *without* needing Channeler suggests there may be an issue.

Thanks for the reports, both here and in the Brand Test thread. :)

Re: Turdak's Sanctum, YASD and ramblings

Postby wizzzargh » Wed Nov 20, 2019 7:10 am

Whew, finally had time to complete (or rather, die on tower:23) a run. Took me three sittings and a few failed attempts prior(rip early kaw kaw)- brand management probably added some time to the game. Would appreciate if you could exit out of the 'pick up brand' menu with escape as well as n, and/or have an option to destroy them right there on the ground so you don't have to later auto-explore or manually explore over them. The things I like about brands is that they make high speed possible without necessarily meaning you'll die to a mean look, and the SP ones are of course a nice addition to vigorous/tireless/tormentor etc, especially for enabling demons to do two things before hitting low SP, like buffing then attacking.

Was a pretty smooth run, though I didn't have any overleveled demons or mega-uniques to lean on. I made a Lifegiver Faerie early on who got Healing Aura and I suspect having it on 2 creatures (myself and healer) was pretty helpful, though its subtle and hard to tell in the moment. I held on to a fair few demons for a long time before their low levels finally caught up to them.

The new relic upgrade point system is pretty interesting, though I ended up staying pretty standard Crown-style for safety- fast summon and dismiss and a huge stable of demons. Soul Armor could probably have been skipped as all I did was get Gremlin Speed very late, and I only benefitted from Fusion Saver once. Probably never gonna get Recycle at 15 cost, as it mostly enables silly lategame vanity fusions rather than important things like 'more demons' or 'speed.'

Certain enemies sent me fleeing from floors-Paracelsus is never a good time, Mordecai and Reprobus are bad news, Jayle and all Titans Fists ghosts were Matter Resistant, Ogun had Eradicator Cherufes with, iirc, poison shot and the 'execution' needle spray and he was stomping the party immediately upon rhino charge anyway so.

I had a pretty good moment where I escaped from Jayle, summoned a damaged demon to rest... and they immediately got unsummoned/ Eliminated from around a corner by an unseen pack of Baleful Incubi. I ended up recruiting said Incubi, but then the rest of the pack was after me when Jayle found me again so I bailed on that level with a Baleful Manananagal in tow
Image

In the midgame I had an interesting (albeit unreliable) source of SP for myself- shocking aura and galvanize. I also had a leadership wild frenzy acidic Brutal Aspis that was my main frontliner for a good long time and killed Madevra, and made it to level 16 before I regretfully let him go- Wild Frenzy + leadership only really works to hilarious light-speed effect when a player is doing it, I've found. Other midgame mainstays were an Aeras (emit sparks, high voltage, and galvanize is just so good...) a fairly bog standard Jiang Shi with lifesteal, block physical, and diehard that somehow managed to stay useful for a long long time, and Ruhin repurposed to healer that went to level 20 before being replaced by unicorns and ninkasi.

Image
This was pretty much my midgame setup. Lategame I transitioned into the area of effect melter with Poison, burning, and confusion fumes (which was hilariously strong, but probably not as strong as a magic nuker and fell apart against anything resistant to matter) and got Disable Mind rather than Mind Twist so I could melt crowds and sleep individuals.

Image
lots of these wacky brands make you wish you were playing titans fist...

speaking of, here was what finally killed me.
Image
Initial attempts to elemental nuke this ghost failed as a near-raicho-speed Sure Shot 2-shot my dudes faster than I could close distance- slapping stats down to 1 via stat reallocation is something I hadn't thought of, but it's certainly effective. As I was going to 'ghost-win' anyway I decided to try a dirty maxHP cheese hit and run, but couldn't even get within range before dying. Of course I could have tried to pop a few essences to give my healers time to react, but I didn't really want to spend an hour doing hit and run against the TWO Hanz ghosts that appeared on the final floor, and so i died.

Hey Wiz :D

summonerd beat you to the punch on half the Brand prompt request: there will be an option to auto-delete rejected floor Brands in the next build. But I'm a bit confused about the other half: you should already be able to hit Escape instead of N for the Y/N prompt for picking up a brand (it works for me, at any rate.) But, UI issues aside, I'm glad you're liking some of what Brands add to the game. :D

I didn't expect the point system for upgrades to change established builds too much: most of the upgrades themselves are unchanged, so if something was good before, it's still good now. But, I am hoping it gets people experimenting with upgrades that weren't worth taking. :D

The poor ya-te-veo's (not words anyone will say often) fate reminds me of those scenes in horror movies where everyone thinks they've escaped the horror and pauses to catch their breath, and *that* is when someone gets insta-gibbed. :D

84 Str on a Level 16 Brand is kinda nuts.. that's basically liking dumping 5 more per level into Strength for all those levels. :D Granted, those restrictions are also kinda horrifying. :D Even TF isn't going to enjoy "no active abilities" much, but it'd be fun to try to make it fly. (Veil tanks come to mind... Str doesn't help most Veils, but the defense is always nice.)

Being able to reshuffle stats down to 1 makes Alter Self useful to anyone, even players who don't make mistakes/adjustments in the points they spend, which is why it was able to be an upgrade. I'd have felt weird making an upgrade that was only for correcting mistakes or (much more rarely) making major mid-game shifts in strategy, but since anyone who gets it can get up to 36 stat points to play with instantly, depending on which ones that don't need, it's worth having as an upgrade, rather than a rare consumable or once every N levels or something.

DoT builds are a favorite of mine, so it was fun to see a report about one (or at least one that was one from mid-game on :D It does take a bit to start sometimes.) Thanks for the report and feedback, as always, and congrats on the ghost win :D

I wrote escape out of post game forgetfulness/stupidity, woops :oops:
escape does indeed work fine (I suspect I may have been trying to mash "~" in the darkness)

my actual idea for brand interface was to make brands like corpses in that they don't lock you into an interaction prompt, and allow you to just keep walking/autoexploring if you don't care to interact with them

my build was DoT in the early game too, but it lacked all the nasty Vapor effects and just had Acid Wash so I was more of a secondary Lucky Aid/DoT/distract one enemy from combat by kiting them a little while my auras and demons did all the work Vitality tank (early game when I haven't picked up free corpse abilities yet I usually just pump vitality)

Huh. I wonder why I didn't think of that. :P

Brands're a bit different from corpses under the hood, but I wonder if I can get that working. I'll investigate. :D Thanks for clarifying, if I can get that up and running without having to make a mess of the UI code, I think that answer'd make everyone happy.
