Welp, that's the last badge on VHOS. 5 Classes to go (Vamp, Goat, Bloodmage, Thief and something elseI think). Nice to have Dwarven Gauntlets and the Fine Sword but no stunning items otherwise. Binlor into a suboptimal JJ conversion (since you need 90 piety) but the generous loadout of midlevel warlocks, punching Indomitable into Blahblah, Platemail and 65% knockback made it very doable.

Hard to get more CHEEKY than this...

Vicious+VT L1 double bosskill without CYDSTEPP:

I was bored, and Rat really don't care whether it's VT or Vicious or whatnot. You don't even need CYDSTEPP to pull it off. Now who's adorable? :P

Agreed that's the most cheeky you can get.
Pretty nice btw :)

Between all the Dailies, VGT completionist runs and Rat stunt runs I've been doing lately, I wanted to do something perfectly mundane, and snatched the next Naga City PQI just because I was missing the place! :) PQI was Dwarf Wizard with Hoarder, but I picked up five other badges as well. It was really fun, in a steamrollish kind of way ;)...

I went in to Rock Garden because of Darvin's recent 1-shot vengeance run kind of made me feel wanting to do something similar... ;) Plus, there has been some gossip regarding how castery & squeamish my playstyle is and I wanted to pre-empt future rumors (regardless of whether they are true or not... :D ). Attack 341 (with SPIRIT SWORD), Health 182, Mana 18:

Killed my first L9 at L3 and my first L10 at L4. The only spells I used meaningfully were CYDSTEPP and GETINDARE, though especially GETINDARE is very strong on this build, I was lucky to find it. I used the Smuggler's Den sub to have an enclosed space where I could spam LEMMISI without wasting exploration tiles, and I did so whenever I had spare mana to spend. Then just went around and bought everything from the shops. I ended up hitting 24 conversion thresholds, so that's 2400 cp I somehow hoarded up... Gotta love the Transmuter. :)

The dailies had me playing a lot more DD than before so I decided to take on the challenges that are left. The only vicious dungeon I have played until now was Dragon Isle. And now I am here to celebrate my first Demonic Library victory! :)

I have to say the vicious dungeons are a really great experience, especially when you don't know what is coming, there is so much tension and the music is great and everything. Well done, devs!

Went in with an Elf Wizard and even ended up faithless. I don't know if I should feel a little bad because I used Pissorf for the final boss, but who cares, I will try a different approach next time.

Congrats! Almost every strat on the map involves moving the Avatar next to the stairs somehow or other, so I wouldn't feel bad ;)

Good Dailies! :)

Congrats! Vicious is fun! DL is doable with pure Fireballs but you either need to be insane or have Piercing Wand (no middle ground as The Avatar is downstairs and none of the boons can reduce monster resists off-map).

Btw I also re-started to do some Vicious, but I wanted to play some of the early maps. So I decided to challenge myself with a Purist+VT run on Den of Danger. I can say, it made me feel like a virgin on a first date, I'll never look at level 6 meatmen the same way after this... Despite bringing a rock solid build (Elf Fighter), and having good draw... I think there's lots of replayability in DD! I can only recommend it to vets & all!

Thanks, Blovski and Tinker! Purist + VT on normal maps sounds very interesting, I played my current kingdom mostly purist because I felt the preparations influenced the runs too much. So I tried to get as far as I could get going purist which was a good learning experience.

I took a Purist Dwarven Wizard PQI in Vicious Steel today, because I figured that I've 1/3 chance to find the Binlor Altar, or otherwise 5/12 chance to happen upon PISORF, so basically cca. 2/3 chance to have the glyph. Now this all reminded me of my Purist Orc Wizard run on Namtar's, because of course I haven't found PISORF either way. That said, I did find Earthmother, who is totally awesome on VS. The bosses were far away and I found the Indomitable very late, so I didn't slam them into eachother, just meleed the one and fireballed the other. Didn't have to touch any of the potions (though it's most likely a lucky side-effect of the awesome glyphs & shop luck - BLUDTUPOWA on a Dwarven Wizard is plain br00ken ;) ).
