Re: Talismans for 2015

Dear lord, that was awful! Ran out of time somewhere around level 8. A 12 day, nearly 70 hour, 16 mettle run? 20 hours longer than my last maso run! Burned about three sold hours in-game just fighting the Mick. Over and over and over and over and over again until I finally figured out a way ...

Re: Elementalist = hard mode

It really is all just playstyle. I did all of my early runs as an Elementalist in Maso and loved it. Ice Bolt is my best friend, and Proper Hydration makes the world a shiny place. Low chips are hard, but there are a few tricks to get you through so you don't have ...

Re: Elementalist = hard mode

I also found Gadgeteer way easier than Psion (a point noted by the fact that I finished up about 15 hours earlier in my Maso run thereafter). Of course in the first run I was using a futility belt for no good reason so that probably didn't help.

Hard Mode

So, I've been thinking. It's pretty obvious that we are a community of people who like challenges. From Maso and Heirloom to Futility Belt and other stunt runs, we tend to seek out challenges in the early game, instead of looking for trouble in the higher levels. As a community, ...

Re: A new newbie from the land of Erf!

Nommy gives good advice as Elemental and maso expert. I forgot the bandages - I only remember them for my maso competition runs.

I really miss all my skills when I go maso.

Easiest way to get super jump?

... drones in that time and nothing. I'm wearing +8% item drops too. Without super jump it looks like I'm stuck in the building with Mick and I'm on a Maso run. I think I found out what is so nightmarish about such a run as I can't just buy something to help me make the item I need! Tips would be appreciated.

Re: A new newbie from the land of Erf!

My mistake. I was playing a game made by ICU earlier :) I meant IOU's of course. And phew! Must be the style of retcon I'm doing. Why did I choose Maso to start with? I think everyone does, lol. Maso's are for Masochists. Even Chris just does heirlooms and she is doing easy ones at that. I am trying ...

Re: May Maso Melee (Contest)

Yeah, I was astonished how hard it is to keep your hitpoints up at low levels.

Is the futility belt bad then? I haven't played with one yet, wiki makes it seem like you get lots of good effects.

Re: May Maso Melee (Contest)

Having a healing skill would have cut at least an hour off my run, probably closer to two. I just didn't think it through when I chose my class.

Re: May Maso Melee (Contest)

Harry, worse it was a Psion run :mrgreen:

If it matters, those runs were done on my Khal Thralkhar account. Getting 13 points per level helps, but I suspect having access to foil and mettle makes a big difference as well.

Re: May Maso Melee (Contest)

Missed the 11 day run by a mile. Today I've run out of time and I'm level 10, 1320 XP from level 11.

Even if I'd timed it so I could finish my run, don't think I would've even come close to challenging for first.

I enjoyed doing Maso in a truly maso way though - forgot how badly you miss healing.

13 days, 52h 54m 20s as a Psion, because Psions are the worst.
15 days, 51h 10m 15s as an Elementalist, because moving makes it hard to play every day. >.<

Re: May Maso Melee (Contest)

Poop, that was difficult. Really don't know how to play maso any more.

Time Played This Run: 2d 9h 28m 42s
Days This Run: 14

I'm going to have a quick second go to see if I can do an 11 day run in the remaining days. Unlikely on this form.

Re: May Maso Melee (Contest)

... but I'm not the fastest. Shiny won the contest last year, because of her crazy 9-day run. I think it was a 10-dayer. Is that still the fastest Maso out there? Looking at her account, it was about 30 minutes faster than my fastest Maso run. Maybe we need a new bounty thread :)
