TOPIC: LF1M - V9b Sat Dec 3 3:48pm CST Hedgehog

LF1M - V9b Sat Dec 3 3:48pm CST Hedgehog 3 months 3 weeks ago #1

td.events/conventions/vtd9b/slots/20815

I have all 10 tickets and am looking for more players; post here with class preferences if you'd like to join! Cost is $68 each; I'll PM payment details once we have critical mass.

Order of the Hedgehog precepts:
  • win as many combats as possible using ONLY Retribution damage (no attacking)
  • mercilessly attack any foes too cowardly to engage us in melee
  • be prepared for either Hardcore or Nightmare difficulty (TBD in coaching based on early recon)
  • must consent to combat-related spoilers

1. David Zych: Cleric/Fighter/Dwarf/Paladin/Bard/Elf (full TE x2)
2. BeLinda Mathie: Barbarian/Fighter/Dwarf {paid}
3. Kendal: Elf/Wizard (full TE x1, HHL x1) {paid}
4. Wade: Dwarf/Paladin/Bard {paid}
5. Rachel: Dwarf/Paladin/Bard {paid:Wade}
6. zinniz: Dwarf:Defender {paid}
7. Alex: Monk {paid:zinniz}
8. BasicBraining: Druid/Ranger {paid}
9. jon: Rogue/? {paid}
10.

We can run this with anywhere from 5-10 players as long as we have enough TEs to cover the ghosts, so please let me know what TEs you have (and also if you're interested in buying any leftover ghosts).

Build for high RD (15+), low AC , and appropriate DR .

Remember you must actually take at least 1 point of melee damage in order to inflict RD, so too much DR is counterproductive (especially at HC). Earcuff of Ramparts is nifty (assuming we have a bard) because we can turn it on and off during the dungeon.

New to retribution builds? Belt of Thorns is where it's at, but some classes can reach 15 RD with no URs:
Neck: Amulet of Thorns
Torso: Plate of the Forge (Cleric, Fighters & Paladin)
Waist: Belt of Retribution
Charm: Charm of Thorny Barbs
Charm: Charm of Thorns
Charm: Charm of Barbs

I have extra Amulet of Thorns, Plate of the Forge, Charm of Thorns, and Charm of Barbs.

Yes, my AC is lower than the Wizard's. No regrets!

This was fun last time. I could do Barbarian, Fighter, or Dwarf Fighter. Pulled plenty of Potion Eel’s Defense in recent loot.

We still have room for one more if anybody else wants to join!

Meanwhile, looks like probably Cleric for me, while BeLinda, Kendal, and BasicBraining each have their choice of two classes. And Alex still needs a class; I have no info about his preferences, though if BeLinda takes Barbarian then Fighter would still be open.

I’m happy to do either Barbarian or Fighter. If Alex has a preference among them, I’ll take the other. If he wants something totally different, I might stick with Fighter.

I think i'm going to just do monk and abandon all my stats. You can do whichever you like Belinda!

Great run, everyone! While we were unable to defeat the Elder Goddess of Chaos, she transformed us all into actual hedgehogs and kept us as pets, so I'm calling that a victory. :)

Bard Troubadour: ac 13, ret 27, melee dr 5
Cleric: ac 12, ret 27, melee dr 7
Druid: ac 12, ret 23, melee dr 4
Dwarf Defender (SO AWESOME!): ac 10, ret 26, melee dr 8
Elf: ac 2, ret 19, melee dr 6
Fighter: ac 12, ret 23, melee dr 4
Monk: ac 12, ret 23, melee dr 9
Paladin: ac 14, ret 30, melee dr ?
Rogue: ac 16, ret 23, melee dr 8

Due to schedule weirdness, our next hedgehog run will be MLK day (Mon Jan 16) at either 1:12pm or 3:36pm CST... if you're interested and only one of those times works for you, please either vote in the discord poll or PM me so I can try to pick the best time for the group. I'll post an actual LFM signup thread later this week.

(sorry for not having other options, I would have also considered a Sat evening but there were no full runs left by the time I got around to thinking about that)
