Smuggler's hold was very useful for that run, I never really used it before but I'll have to think about using it a lot more often from now on.
Ever since the black market nerf, it's the only preparation I choose from the thief den.
Anyway, thanks for that. Martyr Wraps are really cool (especially when starting with a burn salve).
Sadly, I've removed them from my locker. Really cool item, but there are so many
cool items now that you just can't keep them all. I currently have venom sword, trisword, dragon shield, burning heart, vampiric sword, and the avatar's symbol lockered. Probably going to give up the vampiric sword next. Really need more locker space...
Haven't unlocked the Venom Sword yet, nor do I know where to find it - any clues?
Creeplight Ruins quest. You must get "unstoppable" (slay every monsters, don't petrify anything above level 8) while playing as an Assassin.
The best way to win that scenario is to build up piety with mystera while avoiding
killing any cultists. The idea is to kill the sacrificial goat then activate mana leak to deal 100 damage to every monster. Along with assassin first strike, this should give several extra level. Use your healing potions on boss form 2, and your mana potions on boss form 3. If you conserve your resources after using mana leak you should be able to make it through without issue. Which boss form you use mana leak on is up to you. If you can't get through form 1 without expending resources, I'd advise using mana leak on form 1.
If you don't have the venom blade, use the tri-sword and hope for APHEELSIK or Tikki Tooki.
Trisword is definitely your best preparation by a longshot if you don't have venom blade. However, you'll have a lot of trouble building up to 50 piety with Tikki Tooki as a monk on this scenario, and you really
need that poison as early as possible. Should be doable, but I'd go unlock venom sword first and use that.
