Re: Revisiting the Summoner's Smackdown Tournament (2010)

20181018: Getting back into it, I did a few Mephisto runs. Very slow, as I actually killed monsters on the way – not clears, just selected foes here and there. Basically, he is summoning (at p127) all, or most, of the 48 magi to which he is limited, setting p20, and taking 10 minutes (sometimes more...

Re: New tourney: The softcore rotation tournament

Lust the Barbarian 20181004: Lust was fairly easy to ready for embarking on his journey through Nightmare difficulty. He had two Shield ChoMs and two grand charms granting 15% max life in his inventory that were about to be obsolete, so he was able to jettison those. The rest of his charms were rel...

Re: New tourney: The softcore rotation tournament

20180921: Just a few notes before moving on... Pride never did have maxed resistances in Hell Difficulty. Some of them were even slightly negative. It was never once an issue, however. The only time she ever had to drink Full Rejuvenation potions is when she would run out of Antidote potions after C...

Re: New tourney: The softcore rotation tournament

My posts are entirely too long to string even two of them together, so I'm deliberately triple-posting. I hope that no one finds this too terribly objectionable...

[Tue Aug 21, 2018 8:11 am] That Skeleton Mastery is seriously helpful. Having it that high is a nice boost, especially at lower levels.

Re: New tourney: The softcore rotation tournament

I guess, technically, it's not still a tournament, but I'm going to ignore the technicalities and just carry on!

Re: Revisiting the Summoner's Smackdown Tournament (2010)

Hello sokol815 :) Yours is an inspired idea! I don't think I'll completely give up on Necrosys, but a break to do something else is probably necessary. I was thinking I might take up where I left off in the Evolution Tournament next, but I like your idea better. I should still have my Softcore Rotat...

Revisiting the Summoner's Smackdown Tournament (2010)

Hello, it's me again, Back in mid 2010, Metropolis Man started a thread entitled Zy-El vs. Eastern Sun Summoners' Smackdown . It looked like a lot of fun, and I've always wanted to give it a try, and I figured that this would be the perfect venue in which I could get my Zy-El feet wet again. I chose...
