Today I tried to VGT VG : Gorgon and Orc Monk.

Both starts with Binlor, and scum for PM + HALPMEH. For Gorgon I gave Dragon Shield, and for monk I gave Vampiric Blade. Both needs at least one additional good item.

For gorgon, farm 40 piety, buy knockback, consensus, body pact, tank a hit from every possible monsters (this will lead you to ~50% physical resistance and ~25% magic resistance) and farm piety again.

On the Gorgon run I forgot her poisonous attack and it failed. It was close to win. On the monk run however, I lost for 1 piety. It was so close, the fail is mainly because my burn salve timing wasn't good enough. I think I can try it again

(I have Yang's sword so it's little just short of one hit - and 30 piety would give another protection boon)

Here goes my first VT! (out of Infinimuter/Vampy builds)

I'm so proud of myself! Though I didn't find HALPMEH, the platemail went very well. (I did make my veto slots for the run) This time I didn't make a mistake on my burn salve. I should nominate this run to the VGT Olympics!

So, Binlor+PM starting pretty much makes sense even on VT, I should try the rat now, after I recover my 30000 golds?

After I play with some Binlor+PM builds of gorgon and monk for VT, I finally thought I am skillful with knockbacks now and I can maybe retry the Rat VGT.

I thought it is better to prepare a platemail, because the harder part is the former towers. Gosh it was so difficult!

And here comes the

Cool, congrats! You are the 4th official person to have rainbowed the whole map (at least for those of us who posted screenshot evidence of it on this forum).

I think you are really skilled with DD at your current standard. Mind trying out VGT Rat starting with another god (like say Mystera or even Dracul or JJ), hope you can win it so that I won't be "lonely" on the VGT Olympics thread for this challenge, haha.., :D

Meh, deleted my purist human sorcerer vid by accident, no screenie either. HALPMEH was there, 1st tower GG → 2nd tower PM → Dracul somewhere (2x Blood thite) → Binlor to erode resistance → Dracul again.

Tried to do purist or VT with other classes, like rogue, half-dragon, crusader, or gorgon (statue sucks), but all failed. I still can't believe I did a purist orc monk. At least trying purist doesn't hurt my financy, that's good.

After watching Phyre's video, I started to add random altar instead of specific altar when trying VT. Usually GG makes the biggest difference.

Try to use some Undelete software to restore your file.

Purist Crusader was really RNG dependent when I did it, but if you can get GG + PM first floor and something like Getindare or platemail you'll be pretty well off for starting the run. I'm working on purist gorgon which seems entirely doable, though getting bad monster placement on floors like JJ or mystera can be run-ending with no way to abuse knockback. Binlor + PM is such a good combo though and I'm surprised I'd never thought to try it before.

Gorgon of Binlor+PM (acutually, 1st tower PM and 2nd tower Binlor makes more sense. Worshipping Binlor at 2nd tower gives ~40 instant piety bonus and there's only 20-30 piety to pay back) would definetely do the trick, I agree. Binlor+PM is the build I used to manage Miser & Hoarder at the same time, or an accident sanguine-free run. I really think gorgon can beat VT. Half-dragon is also descent I think, given how much damage he does provided there is something to knockback in.

I just failed a run at 8th tower with human wizard. It seems doable if the first tower takes me a usable god (GG makes more sense, but some other gods have chance) and 2nd tower a PM, I suppose. Or conversely a first tower PM and second tower GG/Binlor? idk.

One thing I got is, 1st tower PM + Stone Sigil found goes pretty well. That means 3 piety cost per resist%, so consensus means a Dragon Shield from the start.

I have trouble playing GG in VGT, it's toughest god for me to play as there. Maybe doing wrong, or might just be tough to play with VT mainly, since just been playing with VT so much now, I believe I've won playing GG in VGT with no VT. The beads screw me up so bad, but might be ok if playing wizard or tinker, never got good opportunity to try GG in VGT+VT with them.
