    Did kicks always do a combo? Because they are now my favorite weapon.

    My first run ended at the clock keeper, I got her down to a third but she was too anime to beat

    Fuck goddamnit, I ended at like one hit left on the Time Keeper

    By the time both freezing and traps became ineffective, both my actual damage sources were too slow to close the deal

    Got to the Time Keeper on my best run so far

    I died because it eventually ignored my freeze grenades and wolf traps and the broadsword was too slow to use in the latter parts of that fight

    Necromancy mutation seems worthless, I never saw it go past 4 HP per kill even when I had well over 6000 max HP

    Do not have a cow, mortal.

    Necromancy is a trap mutation that will never be worth it with the current numbers

    Necromancy is a green mutation so it scales with the amount of ranks you put into green, not your max health.

    (Not saying it scales enough to be worth it, mind you, just saying.)

    New Game + down. Onto ++

    last fight was so dang close, my heart was pounding

    NG+ mechanics
    not being able to refill your vials before the last boss fight really adds a challenge factor. I was only able to go into the fight with 2 vials available, ended up being jusssst enough

    Damn, people are flying through this game. I haven't beaten the Concierge more than once...I think I've done about twenty runs so far?

    I beat the concierge a bunch on early access

    never got to the top of the clock tower before though, legendary items and rerolling helps a ton

    Main thing with the concierge is to remember that enemies don't have contact damage, so you can just hug his face and mash attack while just waiting to react to his attack animations. Just back off for a bit after he shields up because that's when he'll pop his red aura

    I've gotten to the point where I can fairly reliably get to the Time Keeper, though some areas are real fuckers and I still haven't been able to get through the Ancient Sewers (Fuck those mushrooms)

    I later re rolled on the daggers and they got something like +250% damage on frozen or slomo targets which was VERY USEFUL

    I reccomend a shield and parrying with the concierge, I was surprised how well it worked

    Broke as fuck in the style of the times. Gratitude is all that can return on your generosity.

    blade traps are how I like to kill the concierge

    I just focus on dodging and the traps will inevitably chip through his health

    Edit nooo I had a legendary fire grenade and I rerolled my legendady dual bow to have plus damage to burning things and then after the concierge I accidentally rerolled the bow again

    With my set up the concierge took less than a minute and now I'm too broke to reroll again

    I just had a real good set up. Rapier and the Bow that does crits when close. Both did +175% damage to frozen. Ice Grenade that lasted longer, Fire Grenade that also froze people. Just rolling up to frozen people getting crits with the rapier and bow. Felt like I'd hit a wall in the game and was not making overall progress and decided to go into the Ossurary for laughs which had kicked my ass previously. Just walked all the way through it. Let these grenades do most of the heavy lifting. Found and killed that rune guy for the floor smash.

    Felt pretty good.

    I've been working speed runs where I hold on to my cells until past the concierge so I can fill up the blacksmith.

    But this last one dropped yellow weapons for me in every slot by the time I finished time keeper.

    I guess I'll have to give it a go now.

    How do you hold on to cells between areas?

    Does this game have any mechanism to catch you up on power scrolls if you've been doing speed runs (aside from the 1 that you get behind timed doors), or do you just need to resign yourself to being hopelessly underpowered by the time you get to the clock tower?

  • godmodegodmode Southeast JapanRegistered User regular
    Could someone tell me behind spoilers which artifact you're supposed to get from the Crypt, if there is one?

    These motherfucking spike-back assholes in the ossuary. Not that hard to fight but any damage from the back does damage to you. Got two caught in a freeze/magnet grenade cluster and like 2 hits into my combo I just fucking died. And I had the impaler, too, so I was mad far away.

    Bullshit.

    Yeah I met those spike-back guys for the first time during my last run.

    With a build that focused entirely around setting up backstabs with the auto-crit from behind dagger.

    That run crashed and burned HARD on that level.

    The Insufferable Crypt leads to the Slumbering Sanctuary, where you get the wall climbing rune

    I used nothing but my fire/ice grenades as a combo on those guys. Threw the grenades then stepped back and waited. Worked pretty well. I had a bunch of upgrades to the grenade recharge thing though.

    ??, you have to go through Slumbering Sanctuary from Crypt if you don't have that rune.

    I guarantee I went to clock room from Crypt. It may have been because I had the triple-jump amulet and I went somewhere I wasn't supposed to be able to get? I didn't completely clear the Crypt map because I was annoyed by the bullshit darkness mechanic.

    You are calling the Forgotten Sepulcher the crypt. There is an actual stage called Insufferable Crypt.

    You'll need to go to the Ossuary before you can get to the Crypt

    Ooooh my bad, you're correct. I got confused cause you get crypt keys in the sepulcher.
    So is there an artifact in there I missed?

    To get the wall climb rune you have to take the following path (requires Vine and Ram Runes):

    Prisoner’s Quarters > Toxic Sewers > Ancient Sewers > Insufferable Crypt(Boss) > Slumbering Sanctuary

    You are naturally funneled to the spider rune the first time you go through Slumbering Sanctuary

    There's two kicks, the Spartan sandals with no combo and the Hayabusa boots with a quite rad combo

    Are the sandals any good? I've honestly been avoiding them because my god are we still makin 300 gags now, at this time, at this late date, cause if so we're doing it forever

    They aren't great on their own but their strength is in positioning because if you kick someone into walls or spikes it does a ton of damage and they explode

    Spartan sandals suck, hyabusa sandals are good
