Re: Please remove Kroshkkur teleport if you let it be destro

Yet another reason why the random Zigur change is bad and should be reverted.

Re: bpat's Recordings and Commentary

Currently playing a Cornac Bulwark meme run on Nightmare where I won't take any talents that use a resource, so I only get Combat Veteran, Combat Training, Survival, and half of Conditioning. Here's the recording of Old Forest.

Re: 1.5.10 Cultist of Entropy Guide

You only have insanity problems near the beginning of fights so Hidden Resources isn't great. I suppose you could use it to open with Spatial Rift or something instead of Black Monolith but Black Monolith is so good you may as well use it. The times when Hidden Resources would be most useful are bef...

Re: 1.5.10 Cultist of Entropy Guide

Edit: Disregard everything about Eye of the Tiger it doesn't work on Demented talents LOL Eye of the Tiger is a lot worse than Windtouched Speed since it's limited to one proc a turn and there's a high chance something relatively useless like a Prophecy will eat the procs. I think it may depend on ...

1.5.10 Cultist of Entropy Guide

Cultist of Entropy is an unusual class. It's like a mix of Corruptor, Paradox Mage, and Doomed but with all the good damage, healing, and mobility talents removed. Here's my Insane winner for reference. Strengths Nearly invulnerable late game Good damage in longer fights Great at weakening enemies t...

1.5.10 Writhing One Guide

Writing One is a very odd but fun class. Here's my Insane winner for reference. The one death was in the final battle after I killed Elandar where I forgot to switch in a Mental Wild so I got shut down by Burning Hex. As usual, I'll put a tl;dr build at the top but you really should read the whole t...

Re: Blighted Summoning for demented?

The devs like to pretend it doesn't exist because its tooltip is an abomination and making it useful for both magic and mind classes is a nightmare to figure out. It's a shame because it'd be really neat with both Demented classes.

Allow Worm That Walks pet to use Wyrm Bile

And other quest items by extension like alchemist quest potions. Pretty ridiculous that you can give the WtW a locked category (from escorts) and he has no way to unlock it. I know Alchemist Golem at least used to work with quest items including the potions and Wyrm Bile and I don't know if that was...

Re: T1 Rework

To the people saying "who cares if you miss out on Bill / backup guardians / whatever", I could similarly say who cares if there are six T1s when you can just skip them / skip to the last floor if you don't feel like doing them. I'm fine with T1s as they are. They don't take very long (usu...

Necromancer Revamp

I posted this on the Discord a while back but forgot to post it here. I actually have like four of these documents for various classes but I'll post them separately.

Re: Cath's BFG - part 3 : Prodigies

I don't think Massive Blow is meaningfully better than YSBMW. It trades off flexibility, potential AoE, and a stun for a situational damage increase. As with Meteoric Crash, you don't actually want to blow up walls all the time making it often more trouble than its worth. I really want to like Draco...

1.5.5 Antimagic Solipsist Guide

I used to think this class was pretty awful but I've come around to liking it quite a bit. No other class can use Antimagic as well as Solipsist and it is incredibly good at surviving in long fights. Here's a link to my Insane winner . One death was to a Doombringer rare oneshot (through 107 armour....
