Re: High-level content coming soon-ish?

If you really want to gun for the glorious XP board that everyone admires and praises, then sure.

Otherwise, I find no point.

Re: High-level content coming soon-ish?

That's really stupid to say, considering Cris tested it.

I don't think he's saying that it's only 30-70, but rather, it's better to be in that range for these quests.

Not to mention that powerlevellers DON'T make up the majority of the playerbase, I'm quite sure.

Yeah, they would be (in response to Olaf). But, er, they don't have any negative bonuses. Those look slightly imbalanced without them.

Well, maybe not to that effect, but I guess I find it odd that if you're only going without it for a couple levels, why not be able to perm it and not deal with it later? That quest could be used as another reward vector too.

So...ascending shouldn't help later ascensions besides skills? I find this very disheartening. Skills as a whole aren't really as effective as opposed to KoL's skills, where something like Pastamancery would cut down your run by maybe a day. Maybe less, but it was definitely dramatic. Here, no skill...

Re: "Ascension" Strategy

I don't know if I really feel like it's a reward if it's taken away (especially something as awesome as that) and then restored back. I think that if you don't let people perm it, they'll get slightly more discouraged from retconscenioning (new words!).

An effect (maybe from a vial?) to reference the awesomeness that is Darkman. It'll last for 99 minutes and will give +5% strength if it's day, +10% or 15% if it's night and -5% intellect. Or something along those lines.

The MMG of KoL, minus the house cut, isn't really a meatsink. It's a meatsink for one player, but it's a huge boon to the other. Then again, that's between two players.

Re: 4 minutes (enough to save the world?)

Yeah, I think I agree with Satan. They definitely are not the same. It's like having an extra 2% over, for example, 100 turns, and no 2% for 104 turns. All of that can add up. We can only do the proper optimization once we have the base chip/item drops and whatever else.
