I think I broke CYDSTEPP

When you are at one 1hp you can youse cydstepp like a warlord. :D

Don't know if you knew that before.

Yup, the Warlord is one of the premier physical glass cannons. You want just enough hit points to survive a single hit, then chain repeated death protections for massive damage. It used to be that every class could do this, but the Rogue was horrifically overpowered when running CYDSTEPP and it got changed to be a Warlord-specific thing.

No no I meant when you are at 1hp max you can youse cydstepp as a non warlord repeatedly.
So making drac angry allows you to youse cydstepp repeatedly.

Ah, that exploit. It's actually not as good as it sounds since you lock yourself into Dracul but have no use of his boons once you're at 1 HP. It also makes low-level first-strikers into a pain unless you've slowed them. A better approach is to purchase blood hunger twice. This allows you to regenerate a lot of health every time you kill a monster, getting you over the CYDSTEPP cast threshold from lifesteal. Your goal is to convert out (possibly after having picked up blood tithe as well) so you can then cast CYDSTEPP without taking piety penalties.

It needs a lot of luck, but a fantastic combination is cydstepp + mid-high levels of poison strike. What is even better, the source can give you gettindare too.

In the optimal scenario you're running around with a 7 MP cydstepping, poisonous orc wizard with probably some knockback and a Rock Heart. If you visited Dracul, you could take some sanguine to decrease your HP, take Blood Curse to up your regen and poison as well. Add some lifesteal if resist stacking is not possible.
By using poison you don't need to decrease your health that much, if at all, and you regenerate MP back as well when you do this unique regen fighting. The best thing is, you can ignore your opponent's damage, and since you're regen fighting, his health too :)

And if you put a Naga Cauldron on a Halfling and find Cydstep and get 2 debuffs on you, every healing potion restores 50% of your health. Which is conviniently the margin for a Cydstep recast. Good times.

If you stay at 1 maxhp you can use a self cannon pretty well :D and dont even have to be a warlord, so 7cp cydstep is no problem :D
