[Slay the Spire] Silently Watching the Defective Ironclad Heart.

    Nearly lost with an insane 2x panache+ shiv deck with a ton of card draw because my red key gave me a normality a few rooms from the boss. I got lucky and ran into a shop in a ? room which let me remove it and buy a fairy potion. Unfortunately I lost too much health and had to heal before the boss instead of getting the final heart key.

    I hate normality so much. Pain is a close second though.

    Ironclad Seed run A15
    I made some bad calls in this run but managed to pull through. I picked up a fire breathing on floor 3 for dealing with the sentries in act 1 and never saw them or evolve/power through to get that build going. Gambled on a Orrery in an early shop that got me an immolate which was enough power to take me through act one. Act 2 was rough since I passed up the + energy relic that meant I couldn't smith at camp fires and instead transformed my strikes into other random cards. I ended up with 3 fire breathing, a bunch of defensive cards, a few wild strikes and immolates to get status cards into my deck and that was enough for the time eater through it surely wouldn't have been enough for the heart.

    Good ol' tradtional Watcher run win:
    A393C973ABB4B24FC983BE39D98A695D0B5DC897

    Squeaked out with 2 hp, but a win is a win is a win, so hey~. Brillance was a starting rare, because sometimes you just want a 12 damage strike in your deck in act 1. Eventually turned into a classic Fasting deck, just without being able to see intents so that was Fun. (it was not fun)

    Also, @MNC Dover - Here's a few seeds for your next challenge for everyone. These are all seeds i've beaten the game on A20 + Heart with... So good luck everyone! It'll be fun to see people's results

    49LHUPD84HUYH - The Ironclad
    22MY70K1ITBRJ - The Silent
    1I37XFRKSJZSL - The Defect
    42N1XJJ4BNX7C - The Watcher

    Yup I saw that brimstone and thought of you, then chickened out and bought Oddly Smooth Stone instead. Was a fun run though! I don’t usually take dual wield but I got some extra reapers out of it, and a turn one toolbox > enlightenment > dual wield+ > demon form x3. :twisted:

    Coward!

    I'm pretty sure early act 1 buying brimstone is always the correct choice. It makes a few fights in act 2 and 3 harder, but the always on scaling it gives you means you can get so strong so fast with no setup.

    Starting Runic Dome is a good test of your enemy knowledge, or you know, your ability to pull a bottled Barricade+ and Incense Burner early on.

    This evening I bought this on my mobile device for those times I'm stuck somewhere and want to keep playing.

    I hate that there isn't a unified play environment. But hey... at least I got to remember what it was like to just start out as the ironclad!

    If you're on Android, you can edit the character profile files just like you can on PC to unlock wherever you're at (or skip right to all four characters, A20, etc). Dunno about iOS version

    >.< This is a good point. I wonder if they are compatible between Android and Steam, allowing me to sync them via dropbox or IFTTT or something esoteric. I have noticed the Android version keeps popping up "syncing data" all the time...

  • Phoenix-DPhoenix-D Registered User regular
    Syncing data is from Google Play Games or whatever they're calling it this week. Unfortunately that would make it hard to get a Dropbox sync going.

    incidentally Google Play Games isn't actually required to play the game even though it claims it is- you can just tap through dismissing all the prompts and it works.

    Fired up the game for the first time in a while (still no patch for Switch...). Lucked into both discard relics early and ran with it:



    I don't usually hunt down Act 3 elites but I was feeling unstoppable, which was more or less true.

    I did Dover's Ironclad seed on A5.
    I went for the boss relic swap, and got Astrolobe, so that's fun lol.

    Anyways, in the end went for a Corruption+Strength deck, and it somehow worked really well! Iron Waves and Immolation were the highlights I think.

    You don't. Remember that was one of the daily challenges, which probably had the "Add 3 copies of every card you take" modifier. The point of those runs is that shit is wacky. ;P

    Oh yeah? Well, what about the single copy of Bash? I'm not stupid, this doesn't make sense. Whelk, out.
    I can't believe I missed that. I was even marveling at the amount of 3 copies.

    Get Angry, beat things to death while getting block for it.

    Had to route away from elites in Act 2 after a bad taskmaster fight ate 40 hp. But i had lesson learned and enough hallway fights on alt route + an event, so i was like this will be fine, i'll get tons of upgrades and i might get arena.

    I got arena, and promptly got gambling chip and lighting in a bottle. So yeah. Only lost 12 hp to the heart... Shield and Spear died on turn 2 without having touched me, so RIP them.

    With 2 energy left and needing 5 more damage for lethal on the boss I play a draw card instead of block trying for the win. I can block if I don't get anything. Of course I draw a void, ending my turn. I'm about to rage quit but decide to let it play out. I forgot I had lizard tail and the boss killed itself on my spikes.

    I've lost track of the fights I've won after my turn ended because I forgot I had a relic or effect running that does damage after the turn ends.

    Just did the Silent run here on A20. I did not even try for the heart, I'm way too out of practice for that.

    In the end, I was basically carried. I got some monster Rare cards and three Fairy-in-a-Bottles, all three of which were used. It's almost hard to lose at that point, but I still almost did a few times :D

    But yeah, Nightmare into triple Catalyst, triple Wraith Form, or even triple Noxious Fumes on the last Donu/Decu fight, that all made things pretty easy.

    Killed them on turn 4 and fed on donu.

    I had 2 limits breaks in my deck before I had any way to get strength but act 2 gave me all the right relics.

    Started with a fucking empty cage, so did the first few floors with Eruption as my only damage card. PIcked up Alpha somewhere early, and then just built this ROFLCOPTER you cannot hurt me deck!

    @Athenor due to the way watcher works its better to remove a defend and strike or even two defends, is you're forced into such a choice on floor 1

    Had a fun one today.



    Once I bottled Corruption+ things got kind of silly (as usual) but even before then I was getting a lot of mileage out of my early Hemokenesis which I usually avoid. Real MVP was the super-early Peace Pipe which let me shave a bunch of trash. I was blazin' at just about every campfire.

    Heh, seeing lower ascension runs and remembering that the apparition event gives you 5 copies is very "Ah, yes ... The good old days ..."
    I finally cleared A20 last week, for the first time since getting back into the occasional run. I did have to rely on the Watcher to do it, but I don't care - I needed that win to assure myself I wasn't actually complete ass. :p
