I hope not. There's no SMM, Frank, or Firstborn. I could have won last time, if I didn't try the silly thing of converting Burndayraz. I expected to receive duplicates of it, so turning it into potion looked clever :P
Bleeded out against Goo, but I was 3 hits away from killing it.

Wow, I'm not even gona ask how you did it O.O

Also, Fales Beard TT for first map pretty legit even without a slowing glyph. Not as good as last time, but if I'd have had the presence of mind to stop spamming B2P I would have been.

EDIT: Yay, I did it! TT Monk, then the berserker with False Beard took Blood Curse and had first strike against a lot of stuff, and after just 1 point in lifesteal went Mystera and converted all the glyphs for mystic balance - refreshment, and then I scored a Cydstepp + Apheelsick in the final level (no money, but also no room for anything).

Wow, these are really good (and I feel for the guys who were testing them, I think I was on a break or something).

I love these!

Congrats!

I'm a little surprised you went Fake Beard instead of Balanced Dagger. It seems like the latter is stronger especially when you don't have TT available. But it's cool to see yet another way of handling TQ2.

Good luck in the third one. It's... intense, and pretty amazing.

Ty!

I'm surprised about the False Beard too XD It's just so wrong, and basically the last thing you'd want on a triple quest what with it being unconvertible... it even eats your compression seal! Except it somehow works impossibly smoothly on the second one (in all 3 levels). And also probably on the first one, I just haven't tried it there. And also possibly on the 3rd one, now that I think about it (still have to see 3-3).

But the approach I took really went through TQ2 like butter, (thank Astral for the tips and moral support! <3). The TT was prepped and the Beard lets you simply play him to farm him (no tribute except possibly for a set of dodgestep for later). You're not looking to kill same level enemies anyway, because that doesn't give you TT piety.

I'd have to think about all the ways it went right, I'm a bit confused myself, it felt more like a runnaway scouting run all the way through. Same thing with the first quest really, purist could've done it for me o.O

My memory is fuzzy, but I recall one of the devs saying that the Triple Quests were scaled for a range of player skills, so doing TQ1 purist seems like it should definitely be within the range of an expert. I recall it being something like TQ1 being an appropriate challenge for players who were just starting to maybe venture into Vicious dungeons, while TQ3 is a premier challenge for the most dedicated vets (a mark which I think they hit).

If you beat TQ3 with any prep that's not the Dragon Shield, I'll write a poem about it.
