Didn't have one before, but I set out and got a 5:14. Then a bunch of 6's and 4:38.

Wow, that's amazing. Paladin makes more sense on the speedrun I see.

Ok then!

First off, that is bleeping fast Spleen! Makes my play look like it's done while I've taken a bottle of sedatives while drinking 10 bottles of Vodka.

The second thing is that I am not going to be adding voice or anything(which would help explain my slow play in places).

The third thing is I also apologize, just going to post videos, no screenshots, but I will also add a thing like Tinker does to help Tinker, such as I edited my Thief with:

Phyre - Orc Thief of Dracul->PM

The fourth thing is here is my Orc Wizard VGT VT run, and I'll be posting the rest one every few days:

Phyre - Orc Wizard of JJ->PM->Binlor->Dracul->JJ

The last thing is that I am so dumb..... Wow! I've known that I needed to work on my preps, and I have been doing some new things with them(I still hate Patches for anyone but a Vampire, screws me over on more runs than it ever helps), however, I can't believe I never knew, and did not somehow notice until now............... I CAN CHANGE ALL FOUR OF MY POTIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!

Why didn't you use GG at the end? Protections and Yang's sword would kill H without hoping on probabilities. If you still wanted to use the Last Chance, you could desecrate TT's alter to raise probability, and land the final blow with WEYTWUT.
Anyway, it was a perfect video! It was very educational. I really like your run.

On GG, yeah, not thinking, never had a run come down that close. I guess same on TT. Remember, I just realized I can change all four of my potions, not just two of them, lol, sometimes there's just blind spots I guess. Thanks.

Here's an Orc Rogue VGT VT run. This is different run than my original one, which I did not have video of.

Phyre - Orc Rogue of Binlor->Taurog->Binlor->PM->Dracul

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QmpnyAf88Lk

Watching my play makes me realize how much better I can get, with stupid little mistakes, or using the gods better. For example: I had a perfect chance to switch from Binlor to GG so I could Lower myself to 9 right before getting mana burned and leveling. That and couple small mistakes at end, however, my mutli-target attacks right before leveling to remove mana burns or just to get the most out of my resources were superb.

I've tried some Purist VGT with VT, I made it to the 4th tower with an Orc Thief, had one guy left, maybe could've squeezed my way to the 5th tower, but would've used all my resources to do so and had zero chance at winning. Also had some decent runs as an Assassin using Tiki Tooki; I think a perfect Assassin run could do it. I think also if I scummed the hell out of a run I could do it with a few classes, but that's against my religion.

Orc Tinker VGT VT run here:

Phyre - Orc Tinker of TT->Dracul->Binlor->PM->Taurog->Dracul

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bavg5MudWH8

I almost screwed this run up by converting rock heart before Horatio by accident, for half a second I considered throwing my monitor through a window.

I've been trying to do a Chemist with VT, maybe just not getting right combo of gods to start or need different preps, but it's very hard. Fighter was hardest of all the classes, this is feeling as hard. It's last of non-monster classes left for me to do. I also want to be able to do some of the monster classes, I think maybe the right combo of gods with Goat person might be able to, but it would have to be an exceptionally lucky run. Haven't tried Gorgon, that maybe is possible, not sure. Tried some Half-Dragon, maybe if super lucky with monster placement as well as lucky with other things. Rat Monarch, yeah.... that would be something.

Got the Chemist, even though this video is out of order, I don't have to edit in my for preps because I didn't have to retire over and over for this one, did it in one shot once I switched to the new preps, it wasn't the run I envisioned but it worked. Was thinking TT with Yendor prep and then hopefully getting at least a Weytwut glyph then use a mana potion to generate a lot of piety. I think Earthmother with Yendor would be good too; you could kill all the lower level guys while still generating lots of exp and get to level 9 easily before fighting the level 8 guys in first tower.

I also was falling asleep while doing this run which is why it's even slower than my already slow play(and explains some mistakes like doing simple math), as well as using blood cows which slows play down a lot too.

Purist, Human Wizard of Dracul+PM→Binlor.

I was quite impressed by Phyre's VT Chemist run which bought an early Blood Hunger, I never do that. So this time I bought it. It is actually more realistic in the purist run, because it is too late to get to 45% resists.

WONAFYT was a godly glyph, which saved the whole space from the Dancing Blade on the Binlor floor. Always remember, blackspaces are more valuable than bloodpools when fighting against H, especially if you need mana to erode his resists. 8-9th towers are the sweet spot to use bloodpools.

Edit: adding warmongers, it's very easy

1) Find PM at 1st tower, use with Taurog, easy full resists and no piety loss, Dracul, hell yeah
2) 18+15+15+5+4×3=65 so convert to Dracul

Edit2: adding warmngers for Human Rogue, Paladin, Berserker, Thief, Bloodmage, Sorcerer, Priest (Well Paladin doesn't count)

It's my first time to use MA as the main deity. I'm quite surprized it works pretty well even without the Soul Orb. Heh, using B2P was fun.
