Totally. Sorry for being so on and off on these Jay, real life can be such an interference.
Episode 22: I always go orc warlord. Gnomes are really only great if you can raise your mana a bunch (think JJ), and elves are best really great with Mystic Balance, but not great without it. Even still, it's a personal preference. Wow, that is a GREAT first kill. Or not, because that was WONAFYT not CYDSTEPP. The CYDSTEPP key is C, not S. EM is the best end game warlord diety of all time. Clearance nets you an extra CYDSTEPP each time. And you're using entanglement to get a 3 level higher kill? This is GREAT! Wow, it's a shame you didn't fine MA first. MA into EM elven warlords are brutally unfair. You need to IMAWAL before each kill. Crystal Ball is another ridiculously powerful item for your elven warlord. You could totally crush vicious with the stuff they provided you here. Using the crystal ball to get only a 3 level higher kill might not be the best idea. Seriously, between clearance, crystal ball, and entanglement you should have gone for a 4-5 level higher kill. Actually, with the amount of flyables (indestructible walls) ENDISWAl is much worse than WEYTWUT in double doom, although it will allow you access the secret subdungeon and get extra hits on guys. You should IMAWAL ENDISWAL to the boss. This is actually the right call. You won't kill him anyways, you need the piety, and the gold for crystal ball. And you realized the IMAWAL would level you? You are playing VERY well right now. Wow, you could have just used your bunch of mid-fight level ups on Gobb, but you can save them for the second if you want to. Remember to keep ENDISWALing. You really should recharge your crystal ball. You should have just converted ENDISWAL so you didn't have to explore mid-fight. There are two more level 8s and a level 9. You have first strike on lower level monsters, even if they are level 8 and you are level 9. Wow, nice effort on the sssssslured S. Wow, that was the best run I've seen you do yet (on this series). Taurog Paladin? That's... unusual, but this should be fast. Wow, that was a really stupidly dumb opening. You could have ENDISWALed behind the starting ladder for the secret subdungeon, LEMISIed a few times to see your bosses, and then joined Taurog and be none the worse for it. Also, a dwarf paladin? Unless you are going for GG, that is not a good choice. Plus, orc would have been faster. You could convert HALPMEH. That was not smart. You could have moved so you didn't have to explore anything. For fast runs you should always of GG. There is a level 5 right there. That wasn't smart. You didn't need the resists right then, so the fine sword was more valuable. Why won't you kill the level 5? You could kill the level 8 golem. Always take Unstoppable fury ASAP, so you don't accidentally waste popcorn. You should facilitate a mid-fight level up. Good. What are you doing? You can't kill him. Unless you waste a DP. And there it goes. That is wasteful. You should attack as soon as you reach max mana as not to waste mana. Killing other monsters discharges burning. You shouldn't have killed the Yin Yang. After you potion you should kill all low level gorgons. Yous hold try to approach leveling up. You simply don't have the exp to do it. Good. You'll barely win. That was much tighter than it should be or needed to be, but a speed run is a speed run.
KEY POINTS: It is never smart to worship Taurog immediately. Worship him right before your first kill so you can use glyphs freely until then (this is especially great for WONAFYT, IMAWAL, ENDISWAL, and LEMISI). Generally, I would try to save your Clearances until the end game, but as long as you have enough it doesn't matter.
Episode 23: Generally I prefer Elven or Orcish Wizards, but since you are really boosting mana gnomes are the better choice (although leveling will be easier for elves). JJ! You shouldn't step on that without full mana. Wow, this is going to be great. JJ+Gnome+Extra mana and Elven boots=RIDICULOUS MANA. Wow, that was an unlucky wall spawn. Seriously, that sucked. It isn't always that bad. You still unlocked JJ, so it's fine. Honestly, as a Gnome Wizard I would prep JJ. Wizards can deal with the loss of an inventory slot. Actually, badge of honor is a much better early game item. Funny enough, JJ is one of the least random gods once Petition is gone. He gives you piety on a set of triggers. You need to worship him first. You should pick up his WEYTWUT glyph. WEYTWUT does not have a higher chance of happiness, but it is another piety trigger. Also, Chaos Avatar is VERY valuable. It is another mid-fight level up before you use any resources, gives you extra conversion points, and makes the boss easier to kill. You probably shouldn't have converted LEMISI until you have all of your glyphs. You have GETINDARE. Well, that was a totally waste. YOU HAVE PETITION. ALWAYS TAKE IT IMMEDIATELY. Good call the Binlor desecration. Actually, Binlor removes 50% resist all from you, but your magic resist wasn't vert important. You need to precast GETINDARE. Seriously, whenever you play the wizard you always forget your GETINDARE glyph (and all of your other non-essential glyphs). Stick to mana, but grab one health. You forgot your compression seal. Always use it immediately. This would be so easy if you just remembered your GETINDARE. Seriously, it would save you an immense amount of resources. You are over hyping four fireballs. Now if you remembered your GETINDARE it wouldn't be over hype at all, but you haven't. This is how Gnome mages are meant to be played (except for the fact you've totally forgotten your IMAWAL and GETINDARE. Actually, you can kill the dragon now because you stacked burning, except you wasted it. Actually, you are regen fighting him. TWO health potions for one mana potion. This is rather painful to watch. You could be winning this so easily if you just remembered your fearing GETINDARE. The amount of resources it would have saved you is incredible. Wow, you lucky man, Jörmungadnr is too easy... You should have been try to level this whole time. Be careful. You are getting rather mazed in. FIGHT THE BOSS NOW. See, that was just not a good plan. You could have used that regen space in between fights or to get an extra fireball on every full tank of mana. See, that was just stupid. If you had saved regen space OR REMEMBERED GETINDARE, you could have killed him potion free. You have an extra fireball on Evolvia. Wow, that was ridiculously dumb. All you needed to was hit the snake! Seriously, you have to account for losing the slowed exp. WHY WOULD YOU POTION? YOU HAD A FIREBALL FOR THE KILL! What are you doing? You have a level up. That should ALWAYS be used before potions. Seriously, why would you not Chaos Avatar before potions. It would have made ALL of your fireballs and attack do more damage. That was REALLY poorly played, but it just goes to show how ridiculously powerful Gnomes of JJ are. Also, you could have just converted your glyphs for more potions.
KEY POINTS: NEVER EVER FORGET WHAT STUFF YOU HAVE (it really hurts you and you look dumb when it happens). Don't convert as a wizard until you have all of your glyphs as a potion race (and sometimes as a non-potion race). When fighting the boss, always start with Chaos Avatar (unless you are already a few exp short of a level up). Binlor should pretty much always be desecrated unless you have significant resists are are going to use him.
Episode 24: Woo! Thanksgiving Episode! You lost a tutorial? That's awkward. Berserker Camp is the easiest hard out there. Orc rogues are flat out better (although not as much because you don't have the dwarven gauntlets yet). The WITCH! The berserkers level, but they are so weak it is more helpful than bad. There is no reason not to try for that level 4 snake. Wow, that is just pure luck. Medusa+Björn may be the easiest boss combo (although Tomithy would probably be easier than medusa for you. You can just cast BYSSPETS you can kill the snake. Good. You realized it. You have CYDSTEPP. Dream bigger. Good job. You can kill Björn with a mid-fight level up at level 5-6. Medusa is tougher, because Björn doesn't have first strike. You can kill the level 8 or 9 if you use your BYSSEPS. Eh, you have most of the map uncovered, so it isn't really a risk. GETINDARE isn't even really that good for rogues. Actually, you are almost out of exploration. Always CYDSTEPP immediately. You can see there is a glyph behind that level 8 zombie, so kill it. Also, you could have killed theses bosses forever ago if you just used mid-fight level up. Good, you realized it. NO! You could have gotten feeling parched EASILY! All you needed was to regen right above your character. What a waste. Convert BYSSEPS for the extra damage. Such a shame you wasted a good chance at feeling parched. Also, you totally wasted potions on medusa when a conversion+BICEPS would have been enough. Wow, the plants were covering two glyphs, two health boosters, and a mana potion.
KEY POINTS: Never forget to BYSSEPS/CYDSTEPP whenever possible, and dream bigger on rogue-CYDSTEPP combos. You could have had even better kills.
Episode 25: I do not like the name. This could be awful. There is very little difficult stuff here. Seriously, you pretty much just ignored his best ability. He can't switch gods, but ALL BOONS ARE 20% OFF AND YOU CAN'T BE PUNISHED. Wow, Lusory off the bat? THIS IS GREAT. Your summons keep covering stuff. That is why you don't curse stuff. WHAT? JJ IS A GREAT PALADIN GOD. The cheaper boons is ridiculously valuable for him. This is going rather well so far... GETINDARE is much more efficient than two HALPMEHs, but it could be worse. You have enough for humility, because it only costs 12 as a paladin. Eh, it isn't that bad to miss 1 level of humility despite the fact that it is all downside. Also, you had 16 piety right before you hit the wraith for the kill, because of mana burn, so you could have used that mana burn piety too. Now it's dumb. You can kill level 5 enemies. That was really dumb. You trapped yourself inside a box. And you didn't need to fight out of it. And you should have gotten 3 mana for GETINDARE before fighting. Seriously, you are being really dumb. You should have killed the non-curser FIRST. Also, you need to stop fighting curse guys if you wan't to beat the boss. Cleansing doesn't remove curse, only enlightenment does. Seriously, the more curse you take the more you screw yourself. Now you are screwed immensely. At least you GETINDAREd for the win. Seriously, the game is handing you a free win, and you are cursing yourself into oblivion. And if you absolve you will remove even the most remote chance of uncurling yourself. WHAT? YOU CONVERT HALPMEH HALFWAY THROUGH THE RUN AS A PALADIN? HALPMEH IS ALWAYS BETTER THAN BURNDYRAZ FOR A GG PALADIN, BECAUSE HE'S EXTRA STRONG WITH IT! WEYTWUT WASN'T EVEN GOING TO BE THAT USEFUL ANYMORE! And now you are really screwed. You have a totally ridiculous and game screwing amount of curse. Well, at least you realized the BURNDAYRAZ GETINDARE synergy. You can get rid of all of your curse. You aren't counting enough enemies. All you needed to do was precast GETINDARE. You are totally screwed now. You are just cursing into your death. You won't reach Enlightenment, unless you get lucky on a JJ smash, which is your best shot right now. And now it's over. AND THAT IS WHY YOU DON'T CONVERT HALPMEH. Alternitively, you could have attack Jörmungadnr to get 2 piety for poison, then a wraith for 2 more piety, get Enlightenment for 80, then use JJ desecration + potions to win. You are screwed. As soon as you burn your potions your run ends. Also, GG doesn't punish you for potions, so you should have at least used protection before wasting potions. You could have pulled a win that way. You lost, and you deserved it. Sorry, but that was all your fault. The game gave you an underhanded lob, and you just let it pass you by. You actually get 2 protections, you just can't take the prayer bead. Seriously, that is where you need to actually READ.
KEY POINTS: KNOW THY CLASS. Always watch your curse. If you let it get out of hand you are screwed. You stopped caring halfway through and it killed you. Alternatively, you could have gotten rid of it with popcorn if you had precasted GETINDARE and killed the level 8 wraith for your last curse stack. Also, converting HALPMEH was VERY STUPID. You literally never used WEYTWUT after picking up BURNDAYRAZ, so clearly you should have converted that.
Episode 26: You are wasting all of your extra ENDISWAL exploration, not constantly ENDISWALing, and ENDISWALing in the wrong places. Your ENDISWAL game is TERRIBLE. Wow, another magic boss. This is going to be rather easy. One HALPMEH is much better than two fireballs. If you stack burning you could kill that wraith, and there isn't anything better to do with your extra exploration. Also, always use humility RIGHT BEFORE you kill the enemy. Also, you have a natural 25% physical resist that would enable many more hits. This is much better. Pepper is still a 10% damage bonus permanently, so it's not bad. That was a good choice. BURNDAYRAZ is useful vs The Indomitable. You can dream bigger with max magic res. The level 8 wraiths are totally legit targets, as is the boss. Just make sure you take out the Indomitable's trophy. At a certain point, HALPMEH is more valuable than BURNDAYRAZ as the amount it heals nets you a ton of hits vs the boss. Dang, you sold the wrong trophy. No, just get a mid-fight level up kill. You can use HALPMEH to balance your hp and mana bar to explore more efficiently. Alright, you are totally over leveled for the boss, but it doesn't matter. Why are you attempting to only regen fight the goat with fireballs. Just hit the dumb thing. There, you win. Good job. You might as well get Unstoppable. Just use the orb to kill the illusions.
KEY POINTS: You need to work on your ENDISWALing. It went a little uphill at the end, but overall that ENDISWALing was abominable. Use Humility RIGHT BEFORE you get your first kill at level 2.
Also, look at your taxidermist to see what trophies are still not gathered. For example, you should have taken the animated helm out, but you unnecessarily sold it. You could fight Horratio soon if you just do that.
As long as I'm making recommendations, how about a silver run, or at least some more bronzes?
We made an expansion and it is awesome. Really, you should check it out, especially if you're looking for some extra challenge.
