He did! I was playing a tinker that run. And they didn't fix the scroll, it just broke for 1 update.

Well, then the strat that should do well with any class is prepping the transmutation scroll and using it to get boatlods of TT piety for whatever reasons. At least get dodge and some potions... You might even be able to use the strat to get a "jump in" to some deity for a cheap boon ynd still have enough to convert out.

Didn't they put a gold cap in though? That would put a break on that strat :(

Wether used as a bonus thing, or go dedicated with any halfling, that should give any class a leg up. rogue with extra combo pieces (TT potions) can be really silly.

Nope, the combo still works. With bet on the boss, you're getting 525 gold per trophy transmuted.

Yep. I forget which thread I posted it in, but I did a Halfling Tinkerer run like that.

At the end of the run, my Trisword was +44 and I had 3 Quicksilver Potions left. And I got Feeling Parched...

Ok, so who does the any halfling with transmutation scroll ridiculousness annotated run before they nerf it?

Do we need it at all? Any other ideas for a surefire strat for Naga City?

While nice, you don't really need the extra boons from tranmuting boss trophies. 2 Schadenfreudes and a few mana potions (at most) has been enough for me to get by Timothy, a dodge potion for Bleaty, poison for everyone else.

But it lets you get poison after starting with a deity like JJ for Hp. Then you convert in and get poison and whatever else you want. It's just nice to have the luxuries of extra potions and dodges.

Don't get me wrong, it's lovely. I was just saying that I had done almost all of the classes without it... and I'd be surprised if it stayed around very long (particularly given than trophies aren't even actually worth 350 anymore).

For some reason, didn't do Vampire until last... That strat doesn't really work for him so well (current revision, anyway).

Ofc you don't really need it, I've never ever transmuted a boss trophy and I had a pre-buff fighter win on it. It's just that you can alway find uses for a ton of piety out of nowhere, if for nothing else then converting out of TT with ease after you took all the boons.

Pretty much. That way I can save Consesus for Blood Swells. Which makes things much easier.
