Great job! I'm still not sure how you won it, but it's incredible that you did!

Also, have to agree on the sand trolls. They're the worst floor of all.

Ty!

And there's how I done it, as well as beating up a bunch of trolls. :D And a lot of rambling :)

It's uploading ATM and it's about 15 mins long so it'll take at least half an hour (I even edited out most of the floorhopping, and just finishing the trolls and the end fight took 15 mins. Just... think about it.).

On the other hand, most of my mistakes happen because I sort of "know" what I need to have to win and I mostly blunder whenever I have an opportunity to get something extra. It's a character flaw I guess, I have to work on making use of "extra credit" opportunities.

EDIT: It's done :)

I didn't think I'd have the patience to watch through the whole thing, but somehow I did. It was an entertaining watch.

Ty, I bet most people wouldn't have patience to play through the whole thing, and with good cause. I'm glad cutting all the floor hopping payed off :)

Yeah, that was awesome! I've never had BYCEPS for any of my runs, so I had no idea of its awesome power.

How scum-tastic do you have to play to reliably beat Gaan Telet? It seems that you absolutely rely on B2P and GETINDERE. Would it still be doable with one or both of those glyphs missing?

GETINDARE is granted by TT, but I'm pretty sure you need both. And BYCEPS if you are a Tink.

Well, I don't scum at all now that they removed the mana burn from Horatio. I was reliant on B2P and GETINDARE in this run, yes, but that's because they are just that good. There are other ways. A pure %res stacker can go without either, but would have to play in subtly different ways. That said B2P and GETINGARE are incredibly awesome.

For Example, I haven't found Mysterea, and I've done runs where I worshiped ONLY Mysterea. Then I only showed Martyr Wraps here, but Alch Scroll, Dragonshield, Tri-Sword, Platemail could be good preps, and If I had the Lifesteal Dagger unlocked i'd probably prep him too.

You don't really need Byceps - I know I had it, so I was focusing my entire playthrough on a Drac + Bycepss endgame. It was ment to be a Mysterea + Bycepps INTO Drac, but I got Trolled. If Binlor had walls, i'd have more creative ways of getting might, and for a Fireballer, a piecing wand can do the trick.

Anyway, there are other ways to do it, and I'll be showing them. :)

Awesome. Do you think it's possible with all/most classes?
