Thread necroing, whooooow!
Just wanted to share a funny little exploit -
Tinker with Faboulous Treasure and found both IMAWAL and ENDISWAL. I also bought a balanced dagger and midas gloves.
Since I had tons of gold and IMAWAL and midas reduced the goldcosts to 2, I could afford to level without touching any dungeon monsters at all.
The best thing still comes - Agnostics Collar, a bunch of altars and Dracul among them. The shopmonsters drop Bloodpooles.
Did I mention that I *still* had 100 gold?
Granted, that was a rather lucky constellation - but still, having a dungeon's worth of Popcorn when starting to fight the bosses and subsequently getting 3 hits of both Bloodtithe AND Bloodhunger - not to mention Bloodshield and a few bloodswells - was rather fun.
