Huzzah!

Let's see how we break this in ungodly ways, it's a fine and rewarding class and well worth the extra money! Big congratulations to the devs :)

And I can deffinitely see how it turns some playstyles on top of their heads, so I can sort of feel your pain. It kicks the qcf forums trademark efficency strat universe in the shins, and does so really well I guess.

Of all crazy things, I'm currently fixated on playing this new class as a hoarder.

I adimire your ambition, sir, but it sounds crazier than the cp bonus :D

Incidentaly, you prepping stuff? And what dungeons are you going about? I'm taking it slow and methodical, and am currently at the modest Northern Desert.

EDIT: I have never purchased the Hero's helm with more gusto. The goat is the best thing ever. Can't wait to see the codex arrive and fire up a brand new account.

EDIT: Also, I've picked up petition with JJ. Let's see how this turns out :)

EDIT: Food is also a terrific tool to teach people to recognize the shapes of blackspace and how many tiles what uncovers :)

I did it in Den of Danger and would have done it in Southern Swamp earlier if I'd sacrificed "parched" instead.

Mostly central right now; haven't branched into "hard" dungeons yet (keep in mind that I'm at work and playing on my lunch / afternoon breaks, so I've probably played far fewer runs than you have). I've done some purist, and some with light preps. Fireball magnet and compression scroll are wonderful for our ruminant friend.

At level 1 with the new guy? Insta-buy.

Keep in mind the flag gets reset every time you convert, so unless the devs made a change specifically for the Goatperson it's practically worthless.

Some of the hard dungeons are really nasty. Slime pits anyone? Also, having to kill guys in Shifting Passages is terrible.

Maybe you guys realized this, but you can convert food for 5 CP per morsel. It's great for eking out that final restore vs a boss, and it gives you a reason to kill popcorn on a boss fight. Each piece of popcorn is 45 CP!

Wow I didn't know this - the side panel didn't pop up!

And I haven't done many runs, I just got my feet wet.

Fabulous treasure seems to rock socks, though.

Flames is a really good pickup if you have B2P too, at least for the bosses.

Still, it is worth more than the balanced dagger? It's almost impossible to top that thing. Now I suppose if you vetoed most of the quest items section (obviously leaving soul orb, venom ward, and balanced dagger) then prepped quest items and fabulous treasure you'd be unstoppable.

I'm starting to wonder if food is more of a mixed blessing than a problem. If you can end up with 20 remaining food that's one more full heal. I often end with more.

I did not notice this! Given that there's almost always extra food left over at the end (a lot of food, if you're using B2P) that's more than a few extra full heals. Wow!

It's telling about my sloppy exploration that I almost never have leftover food (I've started spiking stuff with it though, that might be why :D).

I haven't vetoed anything, and I haven't tried the dagger yet. I suppose it IS pretty hard to top, but fabulous treasure = effortless buyout, which then means refills, so idk...

Also, had slime pits SMM down to 328. I still had CP fuel in the form of tarogs gear, HALPMEH and a tower shield, but I don't think I would've done it. Was prepped to the teeth, but I could've played it better. Mystic balance Mystera did the goo in at lvl 5, and I managed to bounce between her and Taurog without ever touching Drac (drac would've wo it for me for sure). No balanced dagger, but yes fabulous treasure.

Also, prepping an altar has so far got me starting with that altar as my first. Anyone looking to avoid JJ might find this interesting.

EDIT: If you prep fabulous treasure and happen to run into the smacklefunky's subdungeon, you can really take it away :D

I tried the new class at Hobbler's Hold.
Started with JJ and got EM and then Taurog. Early Balanced Dagger find was nice.
So far my impression is that this class is a completely new game experience...
Great work... But i think i'll need some time to understand it... This class seems somewhat strange, compared to the others
