May IotM: Cosmic Jester

This one's a bit complicated, so wanted to spell it out a bit. By default, the jester attacks (physical damage) and boosts spell damage %. If you use combat items while the jester is your sidekick, he'll become permanently tuned to the elemental damage of that combat item until it's changed (or you ...

Re: changing foe elemental weaknesses and resistances

Will do.

IotM has me sidetracked, so it'll probably be a few more days. Also, I've got a couple of things at the lower levels I feel like I need to adjust, so even the changes that have been made aren't quite set in stone.

Re: Something in the air...

Yes, you have to build it again each run. Considering you need to be level ~30 to handle where it takes you, that should give plenty of time to rebuild. But despite the possible misdirection, that's a sharp eye with the thing you spotted. Several additions were made yesterday that were less obvious ...

Re: Minor bugs

Well, I see a couple of places where a rounding error may have allowed anyone with a high negative chips or XP modifier to go negative in those spots. Did you have negatives of either of those things when you encountered them? Rounding error fixed, by the way. Was doing 10x the normal chips/xp modif...

Re: changing foe elemental weaknesses and resistances

I never know how detailed I should get, but the weakest foes will almost all get at least one strong elemental weakness, and will rarely have resistances. As they progress in toughness, they'll gradually pick up some resistances, and have lower weaknesses, until the toughest have few or no weaknesse...

Some already have been. Other stuff gets borrowed (sometimes very loosely) when I'm looking for ideas. A lot of it is, unfortunately, either just not my style or doesn't quite fit anywhere at the moment.
