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.
