Pit strategies?

Talk about the game. What game? The game with the power? What power? The power of ... aw, skip it.

Unfortunately, the first one on the top of my head is use an Aegis. But that's almost absurd.

Buff up your stats as much as you can. They scale to your level only.

I think Cris will end up giving you the best advice though.

The pit's not too bad, really. Assuming you don't have donation items:

It you aren't adverse to changing talismans, use the World Series Ring for the elemental resistance. Another good source for that is the Smart Suit. Of course, there's also Biofeedback and various other minor sources. One source often overlooked is the Forcegloves.

If you're using spells, max your output: enerbun sphere, pandimensional sceptre, and so on.

If you're using Naturalist abilities, you'll probably want whichever star it is that gives PP leech (morning or mourning; I can never remember). The leech still works when you're using your trample or whatever.

Gadgeteers or people just wanting to hit with a stick? Good luck. Boost your to-hit and damage. Astral Splines or Quill Blades will probably be a good place to start.

Don't neglect your offhand either. If you aren't putting a +spell damage item there, get a roboto shield. For other slots, just put whatever you want, the more power the better. If just hitting, you'll want a Scottish Necklace too.

Other than that, consider things like Lovers' Lockets or the Ambulance/Luxura. They're minor benefits, but every little bit helps.

Beyond that, don't forget the sidekick slot. Old Coins, Mismatched Earrings, Clockwork Armadillo, or, hell, the kid from the pizza shop. Anything that prevents or reduces damage will help. With a little planning, you'll only be taking minor damage each round.

If you have IotM access, then you'll just slot those in where needed (Fighting Club and Aegis/Zorromir's mainly).

Use a lot of buffs before starting combat.
use items/services/skills to heal between fights.
Get and use the best weapon and equipment you can.
Get a good sidekick.
Keep at it, it will seem slow but just keep at it and eventually you'll succeed!
