How did I know Darvin would play as an Assassin? :)

You provided a good example of why I think that you overvalued Unstoppable. You basically got it for free with Ding! Max!

Edit: I'll probably try the same thing (if I get a chance), except see if I can replace Purist with Warmonger for an extra point.

Actually I considered Bloodmage initially, but I went for the "low-lying fruit" with the Assassin first. Goblin Bloodmage is going to be my second attempt; I'll be aiming to add faithless to my score for a total of 25 points.

Every class will have advantages with specific badges. I'd say Assassin's edge with purist was far more influential to my decision to go with him than his edge with unstoppable.

Edit: I'll probably try the same thing (if I get a chance), except see if I can replace Purist with Warmonger for an extra point.

I was thinking the same thing; go for it.

Also, don't be afraid to post lower scores. Your highest score is the one that will be used, but additional runs can give us an idea of which badges are over/under-valued.

Yeah, I just have a friend coming over tomorrow and I'm babysitting for my sister tonight. So I suspect I won't get many chances to try.

Does the Translocation Scroll prevent you from getting Miser?

Nope, you're still good for Miser with Transloc.

You should still be able to get a few attempts in (15 minutes for a solid run), and even if you don't get your best score you can still submit something. Heck, as it currently stands anyone who even completes the dungeon can grab 2nd place ;)

I don't know what i find more amazing. All the badges in one run or the duration of the run (less than 15min)...

I didn't have all of them; I was missing Warmonger and Faithless, scoring 22 out of a possible 30 points on the scale described in the original post. I'm kinda nuts when it comes to stuff like this :lol: .

Feel free to give it a whirl and post your results. Although this is ostensibly a contest, there are no prizes and participation is the most important thing. I'd actually like to see some newer players in the lineup so we can see which badges you guys go for.


I gave the Goblin Bloodmage a couple of runs, and unfortunately it's way too scummy. If you don't find fireball early in exploration? Restart. If you find a high-level animated armor late in exploration? Restart, since you won't get unstoppable now. And on top of that I'm finding Ding! Max unobtainable without deities, so I'm really only gaining 1 point by grabbing Faithless due to that trade. Assassin appears to be the purist king.

no no, with 'all the badges' i meant all the badge you did in one run.

Wouldn't you have WEYTWUT from JJ? Or were you out of mana? Certainly annoying to be trapped and deprived of Cheeky. In any event, JJ Orc Rogue is a fun combo and should serve you well on this dungeon in particular.

The glyph has no conversion points. I think the best possible score is 27 (dropping faithless or miser). I might go for that.
