Finally (after an embarrassing number of attempts) won EoR Insane/Adventure (charsheet). I think that ICCTW should be up there as a prodigy choice; perhaps over AM because, really, building MAG isn't doing you any other favors whereas STR/DEX/CUN is a trifecta for Flex too.

Umm, why are you only having 2 prodigies if it's EoR? You could add PES on top to get ridiculous stat boost.

And I wonder why FC is prodigy of choice, do Sawbutchers have some sort of synergy with it?

By the way, Survival seems to be impossible to unlock with Yeti muscle tissue. Probably because it's not a hidden category for sawbutcher.

A third prodigy that you get after clearing the game literally does not matter...
Flex does work quite well since it procs off things like tempest :)

Being primarily STR based, it matters little if you get boosts to every other stat since you only really use STR

ICCTW is pretty good now. However Sawbutcher doesn't mind pumping magic and wants Flexible Combat anyway which is better with Arcane Might than ICCTW so I think I would still recommend Flexible Combat at 30 and Arcane Might at 42 over ICCTW on this class.

One option for overkill I didn't see mentioned: Ogre with ICCTW, maxed massive physique generic, and You shall be my weapon! prodigy. You're size big+2 before gear, so hit a few times with continuous butchery, then smash their face in right before it wears off. If you just want to be mean, if you can get the counterstrike debuff on them right before bursting that is and extra double damage on your main hit.

Might be less overall damage than Timeless and other prodigies, but the burst goes off in 5 turns rather than 10 if you try to do the full length timeless.

Edit: I got Insane Atamathon down to less than 20% health in a single continuous butchery on my yeek sawbutcher with flexible combat and spine of the world, so this stuff and the timeless extension to it are extremely overkill.

Edit 2: For those who asked and didn't get answered, Flexible Combat is good because you get an extra melee hit for 30% weapon damage on all neighbors with every attack, and you get an extra instant attack when saw wheels gets turned off. On top of dual wielding, that's a lot of chances for flexible combat procs. Get it while it's hot, flexible combat is getting nerfed in 1.6 though.

Is this guide pretty valid for Version 1.5.5?
