They said it couldn't be done! A gadgeteer? At level 6? Beat the Troutmaster without using TNT or some other cheater item?

BOOYAH!

I blame my run taking 3 days instead of two on me being a Gadgeteer. :(

One, that was a critical hit. Two, I didn't say you needed cheater items. You simply needed a few more buffs/better items than the rest of the classes.

He has more than 50 HP. That was just the final shot, after three or four shots. By my math, a normal attack would have finished him. And buffs? I had In Communicado (xp), Inky as the Mother Night (non-com), Holiday Cheer (fire/ice damage, HP/PP regen), Upgrade Weapons: Self Balancing (no fumbles), Perpunctuality (-time), Vlad's Decryptonomicon (damn swipe cards), and was using a Gingerbread Man (+FT) as my sidekick.

Hell, I hadn't even been bothering with Vim at that point. And I didn't soften him up with Lightning Bolt, either.

What would you define as a 'cheater item'? Likely, it's everything I use :D

Multi-round stunners, mostly. So, Magic Deck of cards and Holiday Wreaths. Also, TNT because... damn, that's cheating. TNT was how I was in Triassic at level 6.

I intentionally avoided using lightning bolt to prove that Satan just sucks as playing Gadgeteers!

Rawr! So I went to fight the Mick today:

Quote:
You're caught off guard, and your opponent acts first. Your opponent attacks ... He hits you for 135 + 129 (electric) damage.


Sadly for the Mick, he left me with 14 HP left. I had a gift for him:

Quote:
You light the fuse and toss the TNT at your opponent. The ensuing explosion is gratifying, to say the least. When the rubble clears, you find your opponent has taken 1176 damage and is very slow to get up.


Actually, I had several gifts for him, most of them were bundles of trinitrotoluene, but he really hated my last gift:

Quote:
You wind up like a big league pitcher and hurl the fruitcake at your poor opponent. They weren't expecting a "food" fight, and get clocked solidly by the holiday "treat." At least you found a use for it. 53 damage worth of use.

Victory! You beat up your foe and win the combat!


Then, like every adventurer everywhere, I looted his corpse!

Quote:
You gain 2321 experience.

You got an item: blue chip

You got an item: the Mick's sketchy candy

You got an item: the Mick's Thunderbolt

You got an item: the Mick's gorilla vest

You gave him fruit cake? That's just adding insult to injury.

I was having initiative issues, and since lightning doesn't stun, I had to use something that would stun 'em for me.

That's fair enough. I stick to Firestorm :D
