[0.8.5|Endless|12|YASD] Run!
« on: June 28, 2018, 15:03 »

So, after my last run failed because I put too many levels into fancy stuff like Whirlwind, I decided to focus purely on running and then put all my levels into Ironman after that.  It worked very well, especially once I started putting levels into Willpower so I could replenish my energy faster.  (I probably should have put more levels into Willpower, actually, but I wanted to see how high I could make my strength go)  :)

Much of my strategy involved running ahead of the mobs of enemies so I would only have to take one or two at a time.  (This became especially important when the game was spamming Mandagore spawns all over the place, but fortunately, they're relatively slow, so I was able to kite them somewhat)  Any time the hordes built up to unmanageable levels, I would hit them with a bomb or cannon blast to thin their numbers.  This strategy turned out to not be the most sustainable, though, because in the last couple of nights, they were spawning far faster than I could kill them and I ran myself out of bombs and cannonballs, and by the end, I was wondering if I should have taken Whirlwind after all.

Toward the end, I got myself completely surrounded by some densely packed enemies and my only way out was very painful.  I dropped a bomb into their midst at point-blank range which almost gave me a path out and I started to run, but a nearby Wraith started raising corpses around me and my pain level was too high from the bomb to fight them effectively, so I had to use a second bomb to clear those out, (which was also quite painful) and I expended my energy running away until the pain levels subsided enough to fight again.  I held on for a little while longer after that, but eventually they surrounded me again and I was finally done for.  (That 23 kill combo listed in the mortem happened right at the end from a well-placed cannon blast)  :)
