Guess who's fucking dead.
I just started a new char and the ID wizard at vernis has cursed gear that summons monsters. This has been getting me splatted to hell and back, but the last wave spawned in a fire hound, which proceeded to burn the town to the ground. This had the effect of torching the cursed gear that caused all of this, and as a consolation prize, I now have cards and figures for all the uniques in town as well as pic related.
And now I'm off to the forest to dig out clovers and grind for materials to make shoes edible.
You better use that sword.
Also my new mutant char just rolled her third head. The fuck all I want are feet.
Oops, I noticed I put the wrong attribution for the armor descriptions. Actually it's the same as weapons, but it should just be "Equipment" rather than weapons I suppose.
Oh, and to the person asking about weather in the home: sorry, but not likely to happen. If the graphics and effects can be separated, maybe, but honestly I don't think I'll get around to even looking into it.
Oh shit the snippets are in !
I won't thank you because thanking people that deserving to be thanked is bad because it can develop circlejerking and even worse discourage the recipient of the thanking to continue whatever they did that made them deserving to be thanked.
Again, to be clear, i do not thank you, and will not thank you for your work. You are doing awesome work that we waited for for literal years, but i will not thank you.
I finally have gene engineering in the double digits. Anyone know any non-standard NPC I could ally/waifu/husbando up to get humanoid parts? Cattle/Minotaurs seem like a decent start once I start finding some.
A bad parameter for a temporary institution around Yowyn was causing the game to crash, so this has been fixed. If the land had shifted already when you played in 1.52, the facilities would already be gone and this error wouldn't happen. A land shift is guaranteed to happen upon updating to 1.53.

I just really enjoy the sound of rain.
Being wet while being inside any building is unreal to begin with, but that's just a game mechanic you can't do anything about.
From a roleplay perspective it should bother you that your house alone doesn't get rain or snow for whatever reason!
Magic. Barrier magic.
what about etherwind? I have a fricking palace, I don't have to hide in a hole in the ground.
my house doesn't have weather effects because it's got a roof on it. and magic wards and shit.
Rather than him making amendments trying to fit your shitty weather-in-base scenario. Why don't you just live in Vernis itself? Theres a hole in the graveyard you could chuck your items in. I mean, a base is just a place you just rest in once or twice right? Forget about all those vendors and item management and visitors and shit right?
The sound of rain scares me. I hide under the bed fearing lightning hounds will bully me. Also, bad people visit when it rains. So called adventurers show up at my door, force me to drink, and they vomit all over my place. They leave without cleaning it up! Rude!
you can keep beating them up until they decide to leave permanently.
or you butter them up until they think they're your friends. and then you ask them to become your pets. and then you lock them in your sex dungeon.
Some sprite sheets if anyone's interested:
Ugly Monster themed sheet
Waifu themed sheet
Two bell of termination balls, rubynus gear for them, fire resist gear for you should be all that is needed to rush zeome.
Blessed potions of descent and of cure jure can't hurt, too.
Can I not get feet as a mutant or am I just really unlucky?

After watching this speedrun (http://www.speedrun.com/Elona_-_The_Eternal_League_of_Nefia#Anything_goes1), which was about an hour, I've come up with this plan for speedrunning:
Set running after to 1 steps, walk speed to 1 wait, and attack interval to 1 wait
Monster balls containing allies of your choice. At least one ally should be good for riding
Gear for you. Should boost your HP, protect from curses, protect from thieves, keep you from being stranded, and increase traveling speed.
Gear for pets
Deeds of heirship
Blue capsule drags
50+ blessed potions of descent
Potions of cure corruption
Potions of healer (Jure)
50 scrolls of return
Blessed scrolls of vanish curse
Scrolls of holy light
Lots of hero cheese
Cold proof and fire proof blankets
Race: Something tanky
Feats: Ascetic, Kokou, Long distance runner
1. Quaff all of your potions of descent. Eat hero cheese. Eat cursed food to vomit to get hungry. Get additional feats if desired.
2. Go to the embassy to buy a deed of heirship and deed of shack. Place the shack right above Palmia. Use the deed of heirship to get your other deeds of heirship. Read the deeds of heirship to get everything listed above.
3. Go to your shack and get your items. Use the monster balls. Leave happy bed.
4. Go to Yowyn and learn Detection and Riding from the trainer. Use your skill points to raise detection and riding.
5. Proceed with main quest as normal. Read scrolls of return to quickly get home. Sleep in happy bed or king's bed in Palmia. Equip useful precious items dropped by bosses (Rankis, etc.).
Detection is incredibly important for seeing the hidden passages in dungeons. Without Detection, you are forced to mine, which is extremely slow. The blessed potions of descent give you the skill points to level up Detection. Riding lets you keep up with your pets but is optional. Coupled with hero cheese, the potions of descent also make you very tanky and keep you from wasting time dying. You could consider bringing teleport scrolls and reading them to find the stairs in the dungeons quicker, but this separates you from your pets.
I believe it's possible to beat the game in sub 30 minutes with this strategy. Anyone have suggestions?
Oh, I misunderstood what you said. I guess the player has to buy the deed of heirship normally. The player really only needs enough deeds to get the potions of descent and monster balls; the rest is icing on the cake.
Finally befriended this Fron as my token Martial Artist. Is it a bug that the god recruiting penalty did not apply to her?
You could use teleportation instead of detection, as detection is still kinda time consuming and chancy when you dont have a high level of it. Dimensional move, short teleport, or teleport, or rods, which are pretty abundant.
I think you can skip alot of the hero cheese, and instead run a piece of gear with alot of constitution artifact fusioned onto it, same goes for speed. in fact artifact fusion everything and use living weapons
Woop didnt realize that you mentioned teleports. Honestly i think its easier to play without pets cuz the AI is pretty hurrdurr. You can leash them and just spend maybe 2-3 turns and they'll rubber band to you.
it's not really a speedrun if you're relying on passing on gear from another character that can have hundreds of hours on it.
do a lvl 1 snail tourist speedrun, no inheriting, FINAL DESTINATION.
If anything, I was one of the only that questioned some of the things being done, or their priority, not that you would take it from me. I'm not a single-minded sheep like you, I'm not part of a hivemind, and I'm free to express and believe whatever I want. but nice try.
Help. I want to buy a fucking horse, but I don't see the option.
I don't think so, as far as I know. Unless of course you can mod it yourself.
Its probably what the anon said. 1 new ally per 10 charisma or something. Better start training performer.
Just replace the sprite you dislike with what ever you want man.
Ok, I tried finding the best ones I could with similar styles and heights, I just cant find too many of Yacatect though.
Yeah, I wanted to make as many of the monsters into girls as possible but just couldn't find any more sprites to swap over with. So now I've started searching on some Japanese blogs. Oh, and I killed sanic, alright? He was just a placeholder until I find better replacement anyway.
You shut your whore mouth Yacatect. The only reason why you weren't brought into the god argument is because you were an obvious nonfactor noncontender in the argument. Anyhow, best deity is Eyth if it even exists. If he doesn't Itzpalt is a VERY distant second at best.
Last time I walked into Derphy I thought I was in a shrine dedicated to Yacatect. Aids infested prostitutes stringing me out for money, den of thieves fleecing people for gold, and rigged gambling games to assure people go into debt. Yacatect surely must bless that place. Since I don't approve of Derphy I don't approve of Yacatect. Burn that city to the ground Itzpalt!
Yacatect doesn't have a shrine in Derphy. She does have a shrine in the underground casino of Melkawn though, which is much more classier.
I'm doing this for your own good anon. Please don't associate with this bad woman. Especially since she has a name that sounds like the sound she'd make as a cock hits the back of her throat. She just wants you for your gold anon! Woman like that can bring a man to ruin.
Had to make a few quick fixes, like cleaning up a black rectangle on the giant and other shit. Also added some extra sprites.
I just had a crash on the newest version, and when I reloaded the save, everything was wiped but the character. All the maps were reverted, including my home and storage. Any idea what happened or how I can restore everything? I lost everything I wasn't carrying on my person.
I don't know what statistics in the game actually causes the sleepy state to occur, but I think it may be related to stamina. As I noticed on my game the more actions I used that burnt through the most stamina (e.g. ensemble, houzanha, sex) rendering my character tired or very tired more often, than resting up until full, would usually cause the sleepy state to occur more frequently.
Tired status reduce speed, sleepy status happen after ingame hours so low speed means more sleep time as hours pass more quickly, in opposition to starving that is tied to turns spent and so more speed mean needing more food as hours pass more slowly.
Ah, now that makes more sense. For just a couple of times I've been making myself purposely tired for the hungry ghost trick, and of course that would speed up time allowing most my food to rot like an idiot. But just couldn't tie in to it actually being from how much time had passed rather than how much stamina was being spent that caused the 'need sleep!' state to occur more.
So I guess if you want more sleeping chances you'd best hit the Deep-sea castle then.
Nope! You don't get sleepy in the deep-sea castle. Items with a cooldown get frozen at their max time, whether or not they're in your inventory. I don't know if the ranches and farms get nuked. The castle might still be good for resetting the wish counter.
Damn, they just keep nerfin stuff, huh? Just when I was about to take all my statues too. So screw that. I still got my fairies, and I'll just keep exploiting their use until they take the bite out of that next.
Please do not abuse the fairies. They are very sensitive.
Collecting stuff to furnish home, instead of starting a new character I'm raising a pet to do what my new character would of done, doing the story, playing blackjack because I like blackjack, farming all sorts of things, grinding.
Time to finally record the life story of your character from start when Lomias tricked you into eating a beggar's corpse and up to whatever your character is now.
Everything has an end, perhaps its time to just move on.
Nah, bards and beggars are for abusing. The fairies I just take for a little stroll around the wilderness, then feed them all the bread I hoarded up from the entirety of Tyris once they get hungry. Since their not strong enough yet for forced vomiting anyway.
Build your castle/palace up til it looks even more majestic than Palmia. Right now I'm trying to build a monument honoring the gods by arranging all the god statues in some sort of pyramid setup, but I'm still missing that damn Ehekatl for some reason.
Please consider their feelings.
How come no one ever told me your pet's health bar changes color when it's hungry? This would have been very useful knowledge. I still have a hard time telling the difference because i'm colorblind
A lot of people talk about "early-game" and "late-game" - when would you consider a character to be in late-game or mid-game?
How does this sound:
All skills learned = mid-game reached
7 vendors at home with 100+ invest = late-game
Strong enough to take on inner gods = end-game
Is there a quicker way for raising Kumi's favor other than waiting for veggies to grow?
The problem I have with this list is that I had 5 vendors in my home all invested over 100 before I even crossed over to South Tyris. I certainly wouldn't peg myself as being end game at this point.
I like this more but I'd either add post game to this list where one is killing inner gods or just lump south tyris and lost irva into mid game and just call killing inner gods end game.
The problem I have with both lists in general is how you account for the chaos fort bosses. Those guys are usually harder than the story bosses for their portion of the world. Then you take the gods and they're much much harder than anything the story or the chaos forts have. The list also needs to answer whether this is for people just doing the story or is the list a completionist list where you conquer everything. Also, how do we account for the void? Is there a bottom floor to that place or does it truly go on forever? If it does go on forever wouldn't the things in there eventually become even more scarier than the gods themselves?
Veggies are just his favorite stuff. Corpses, while not his favorite, will help and due to how plentiful they are, should help you reach your goals quick if you mix them with veggies.
Edible plants out in the roads are infinite and you can collect them for quick favor if you have enough sanity points. That's the most grindiest way if you really need to use it.
In terms of raw stats, yea they are kinda scary, but they tend to max out after a certain point, at 2000 to all stats. And they generally don't have any abilities that destroy you quite like some of the inner gods. That being said, I guess there kind of is an upper limit to how difficult the game can get.
Do a bunch of quests in Palmia that have a separate city map, like Panic! or Challenge Quests
There should be an empty altar to convert every quest, will get you like four times or so the piety points. Then use heavy corpses, the heavier they are, the more points you get. Keep them in your 4th-dimension storage space as you collect them (or ice cooler). Big Daddy, Dragon, Tyrannosaurus, etc. corpses are all great. Especially Cloud Monsters that have 100 pt weight.
Huh. Seems like I need more fame after I read about that method in the wiki. Guess its time to buy 6 more farms and surround Palmia with it till I get the right fame.
37 hours ago. Nice, thanks banana if you're lurking this thread.
3114/333 INI...well I guess this is what I get considering catgirls are hard to train and now I have the audacity to train the goddess of catgirls. I have my work cut out for me but first order of business, what do I do with her eggs and milk? Too bad I can't auction them off to some Ehekatl otaku.
The goddess picture isn't mine. It's Elona artwork I pulled off of pixiv.
Finally somebody made a good looking Big Sis Yacatect fanart.
Can I get links gentlemen? I am new and currently playing regular Elona+
Teleport mutation is suffering.
how do you get the healing rain spell? ive already read the spellbook and i cant find it anywhere on my spell list
Yeah, I don't know anon. He seems to have always had this problem with being depicted as a girl. Even players occasionally are surprised to learn it's a guy. Considering each of the gods has an obvious quirk about them I guess that's his. As a bonus, he's also a latent yandere but that's not evident until you leave his faith or get him to inner god form.
I'm playing a Eulderna-Gunner. In the past I played Juere-Pianist. I found it a good combo to get to learn how to play and survive in Elona. Performance brought in the money and being a Juere I didn't starve as much and in the meantime got to learn about ways to keep myself fed.
Elea because they start with decent magic skills so I can start using spells as soon as possible even though I picked Claymore as starting class.
I would play Fairy but I'm scared.
Speed isn't an issue if you stay away from combat and rely on pets early, and thief is for the sweet crits you get from being undetected. Works well if you're mainly ranged.
Fairy so far is good for me. I recently hit South Tyris.
I started out as a pianist so I had to rely on pets while I would grind farming and performance. But then I changed class and now magic dart is fun.
The new AI system it's a bless for me.
Is it? Damn I know I hardly use it other than to rant and bitch about shit happening in game but its kinda sad not being able to see Knight White Zyklon Ben dying of starvation in North Tyris.
Mutant. I was gonna go for non-save scum mutant and got a back and a head early on but decided to just fuck it and roll for hands and other necessities.
Planning to sketch out how she would look like after beating North Tyris.
What's the best way to increase my karma that doesn't involve shitting money all over a nun or letting myself die to guards/rot in jail repeatedly?
Repeatedly killing citizens in party time quests for lost bags/suit cases and then giving them to guards.
Or reviving neutral npcs after killing them if your casting level is high enough.
It's not like you can't just use scrolls to make everything wearable, they're more than strong enough early game to make up for not being a snail in every way, and in some ways other races.
Fists + throwing = OP
Also, if you ever get <Nightmare>, you're basically set as far as throwing weapons go. Stopping time is so damn useful and it's saved my ass SO many times.
The +10 gear will help but also keep an eye for stuff that has resists as it's probably magic and elemental attacks that will kill her often later. If you find stronger stuff for your character consider giving your pet the hand me downs. The god reward weapons are good for pets They provide decent damage and also provide some resists. If you're not doing so already, leash your pets so they don't travel too far off and get themselves killed. Also, get a way to heal your pet either through first aid kits, healing rain spell, or whatever.
Maybe I'm just being a bitch, I know fairies are great mages but I can't deal with the fact that they can't carry shit. Also I've heard something about artifacts not allowed to change materials or something.
Theres an npc in south tyris which attach limbs. Doesn't matter which race you are.
Beginning game they're awesome, mid game they're meh as they'll be having to shelve a lot of goodies they find(probably depressing for them), but by end game they're just as good as any race since they probably have been stocking up on flying scrolls and have the means to get more. They just use those scrolls to lighten everything and wear anything they want. Also, if a fairy chooses to go down the wizard path they really don't need much in the way of gear as spells can carry them pretty far. If all else fails, a fairy can hide behind his/her big burly pet until the bully leaves or is a blood smear on the wall.
Our characters are of similar level and build, so I'm having a lot of fun comparing stats.
>90 PV with just 4.0s of equipment
Did you +5 all your equipment or something?
Cute tabs, by the way.
Did your pet fall into a well after drinking from it? Give it wings or equipment that floats you.
Fairy warmage, started a claymore because i like the starting stas/skills. I use a gun for offense and magic for buffs/debuffs.....basically everything except attack.
First character that's held my interest long enough to beat Zeome.
Speaking of which, is South Tyris basically a place to visit rather than move to? I'm not really seeing much there except quests and the AP dude.
You don't need to move your homebase to south tyris since you can get the maid mansion in south tyris.
Also I just realized Shadow Rush requires 50 gauge to use. THIS SUCKS MAN
Also, it's technically two returns away. The three worlds aren't connected via return, you have to teleport to the north/south border, change continents, and then teleport again.
Beause I already have a waifu and two houses is one more than I need.
Well that's weird. I can't cast return at all from south tyris currently, but I returned home to dump stuff yesterday with a full location list. Well I guess that's a reason to buy the mansion. A rather annoying one.
Did you actually enter the border from south Tyris' side? It doesn't get added until you do. Also the only locations for return in ST are the border, remhido, the ancient garden (mostly for Irva traveling) and the mansion.
And the mansion costs 2M, iirc.
Otherwise something might have fucked up, someone else in the thread reported problems and losing everything for no reason.
I haven't been back to the border since I arrived in south tyris, no. The Return spell menu was the one I expect from north tyris.
Guess I need to walk back to the border. and probably cross it because there's not much reason to be here currently.
Curious. It's possible that if you haven't visited a return location from ST it brings up NT list. Never actually tried that so no idea.
At any rate, keep that in mind, barring other unusual behavior like that you can only return to NT locations from NT, ST from ST, and Irva from Irva, you're forced to change continent via caravan/gavela's prototype/Norne.
After you get far enough in the story you get a shortcut to Lost Irva through Norne when he sets up shop in Larna.
Here's my equipment screen if you're curious. And thanks, it's the little girl UI from the pastebin.
Are you the fairy warmage from the other thread?
So wait once the chat servers die we won't see stuff other people are dying to?
Unless Elona+ is running its own servers separate from regular Elona's server then yes, chat, death, and wish messages will be gone. Having said that, I also wish we had are own servers for moongates. Also later down the line, I hope we have something for the card game if it ever gets implemented.
Hopefully he succeeds. It would be really sad knowing you won't see death messages of other people while playing.
Thanks. The people in the previous thread had pretty impressive stats too especially that grind god danger zone. I've been putting off grinding normal attributes and dungeon diving and have instead been focusing on growing out my mana attribute. All I've been doing is gardening, shopping for scrolls, and party quests.
For the party quests I usually kill everyone off except named NPCs for their score multipliers. When there's 10 minutes remaining for the party I create a box, spam summon spirit, then use alchemy rain with a love potion to get them added to my score. Since I summon high level spirits they add a lot to that score. I usually make 90k to 100k tickets for each party. I can earn a whole more than this if I summon a god in the mix but that's a rarity due to lack of wishes on my part. I then go to Stoke in South Tyris and trade the tickets for magic fruit.
After I cap my magic attribute I'll begin doing my life attribute. So yeah, the magic fruit is why my mp is in the millions. That and my levels have helped.
Holy shit so you could summon spirits for party quest and use them as your audience? Damn this fucking game just keeps getting better and better the more I hear.
It's kinda creepy every time I think about what I'm doing. I go in there, start shooting up the place until the whole ball room is a red mess, then I go about my necromancy raising the spirits of all the people I've killed which I then douse in "happy gas". At party end the maids, butlers, and clean up crew get there to see dead bodies everywhere and are scared shitless. Meanwhile the VIPs are laughing up a storm saying "Best Party EVA!" and I get glowing reviews.
Anything dropped during the party you're going to want to swoop in and grab before the party ends. If you have a lot of speed on your character you have quite a bit of time on your hands. The reason to kill off any non named NPC is to make room for the spirits. Only thing I'm picking up after the party is my reward after I talk to the NPC that gave me the quest.
Also to get a ton of tickets you need really high level spirits meaning you need a really high level summon spirit spell. I'm talking like lv 300ish or higher. Before this point, you're probably best off not killing anyone and performing for everyone. If you have pets ensemble is the easiest way to impress people at the party.
I'd donate the wishing rods if I could. Honestly, I wish this game had some multiplayer features like trade or something, on a multiplayer server or something of the sort. A pipe dream...
Had a pretty slow start as a Juere-Warrior, but doesn't come anywhere near as bad as my first Yerles-Warrior whose permanently locked up in karma hell. Was actually on the verge of quitting until I took another shot as the Juere purely for the digestion bonus. But still, shit got pretty hairy once I started dungeon diving after finishing up quests, which led to going kinda overboard on the pets for safety. And so for a large remainder of the game I maintained a miniature army of 13 pets just mangling up shit like some retarded sprite-cluster lawn mower.
That's some amazing stats for lv 71. Shit, I'm 71 and my stats are all in the two digits. Here I am dicking around with my Diablo sword thinking I'm tough shit. I need to step up my game.
It's ok anon. Just have a hungry ghost nibble on you in the puppy caves and you can grind them herbs/stats. But seriously, you're doing really well on stats so that Juere thing couldn't of been that bad.
I wouldn't worry bout it too much, his stats are actually pretty nuts for even maybe level 200. I'm assuming he used alot of herbed herbs to get that, and primarily worked on his stats more than exp or whatnot. Also that playtime.
Pretty much, should of been a farmer instead. Yeah, yeah I know, wasted way too much time searching for furniture and training pets. Plus why is this game so damn soothing, makes ya just wanna sit around and do nothing most the time.
Picnic baskets are awesome, who cares about potions of potential when you can just easily create a bunch of baskets and train the potential of all the stats of your whole party at the same time?
I hear gene files carry over time so if you see someone with a lot of game time this could be a reason too. If this is the case I kinda wish that the timer would be reset because you technically are playing a new character.
Absolutely nothing wrong with that. Honestly I feel the same way. Just turn on the game and chill. Which is why if this game had like a multiplayer sort of thing it'd be the chillest thing ever.
He must give you one. Part of the tutorial is him giving you a cursed piece of equipment (his bow, I believe) and the means to uncurse it.
Any chance that the problematic bow is that one and you didn't actually uncurse it in the tutorial?
I recall having a playthrough where the scroll actually failed to work and one where he gave me a cursed scroll of uncurse.
Nobody likes Lomias. NOBODY
Uncurse your stuff, then go into a dungeon. If you need money to uncurse, do delivery quests. Or perform for a bit at cyber dome while avoiding the vendors.and AP dude.
Honestly, though, I'd stay away from dungeons until about level 5 or so.
If you can, stay at Burden but not Burden! since it lowers your speed even more.
I like Lomias. It is a good source of miracle bows.
You can't in game. Use elosnack, it will be in xxxxyyyzzz format, x and y are actual speed and decimals, z is the potential. You can also use cheatengine after finding the value through elosnack to track it while playing.
You're right. I absolutely hate Lomias with a passion. You wake up in a cave thinking that it might of been Lomias that saved you from the ship wreck but the truth is it was a cave hermit. You woke up at just the right time because if you hadn't Lomias would of made sure you joined the hermit. When you wake up he talks to you about how he's on the run and kinda makes it seem like it was he and the girl that saved you. He then proceeds to feed you the hermit to eliminate any evidence of man slaughter so the vernis inhabitants will think that the hermit died out in the wilderness or had an accident.
You see Lomias was planning to use said hermit cave as a hideout but since you're around you kind of fucked up that plan. He tries to off you with putits under the guise of a tutorial but finds that this doesn't work so he just fucks off. Lomias is an asshat and a murderer and deserves to be hung by his dick until he dies. Meanwhile the little girl is searching all over the continent for her master since you got separated in the ship wreck and had Lomias succeeded in killing you in the tutorial the little girl would be heart broken.
You are kind of expected to have to start over until you figure out what you're doing. Most dungeons are not going to cause you the same problem as the Puppy Cave with dropped equipment, since only a few of them have randomized floors every time you use the stairs.
Also, a piano is awfully heavy early on, so you might just want to pick up some other light instrument somewhere for now. Like this guy says >>14570757 you aren't going to want to have your speed reduced, and early combat is tough enough even unencumbered. Unless you are actually going to be playing it, you don't really need to have one at all times, but it can be tough to remember to dump stuff like that sometimes.
Not him but some of the spirits are rowdy and the box is used to prevent them from killing the named NPCs I imagine. It seems he also walled himself in so that they wouldn't attack him. Makes sense, if those spirits he's casting are high level I wouldn't want to be smacked by them. I mean they probably have high stats.
I heard a similar conspiracy theory on the rogue like general in /vg/ several months ago. Nobody refuted the claim but who knows if it's really true. I certainly am not far enough in the story to say either way but the theory does sound plausible. Well at least for me it does.
If you use the secret experience of Lomias and incarnate a new character from the gene file, you'd get beggar's pendant at the starting cave. The story goes with Lomias claiming the cave by killing the beggar residing in it, thus getting the pendant.
Well they start out neutral but some of them will start to fight among each other due to being drunk like you said. They also may go on to attack those NPCs. Also, when you use alchemy rain you end up aggroing everything so he probably ended up aggroing all those spirits.
Well, I've finally gotten around to adding the new tweak menu. Things will be a lot more customizable now, rather than just in large groups.
Incidentally, if I told you I'd implement something you wanted but to yell at me after I revamped the tweak menu, now would be a good time to yell at me. For the person who wanted the ability to have random start points for mp3 playback, that's already implemented.
Oh shit its Banana. Hi Anna!
I have no words for the captcha.
Get enough flying scrolls to make your own portable altar. How many to use depends on your weightlifting.
Go to Yowyn, offer veggies right off the ground. Don't even need to pickpocket them.
I used up a whole stack of them and it didn't raise a single relationship rank.
Resurrection on the other hand has proven to be much more effective. I suppose I don't need to rely on gifts as long as I have enough spell stock.
i started by modifying full sprites, exctracting part of them to put on other sprites, creating small accessories etc
what you need to know is there are a few body sprites and its impossible to make something that fits them all so you have to choose:
big body (no room for the mount, old default)
small body (current default)
eyecandy body (small waist big boobs)
i may be forgetting some
As I said, iirc love potions cap at 100 impress, if the target is already at friend they do absolutely nothing to their impress. Not sure how it works for resurrection, reviving a dead pet a couple of versions ago didn't restore them to the previous relationship if it was high enough, so gaining impress through kill->res was impossible for pets after a certain level.
Not sure if it works differently for npcs or they changed it.
goddamnit i just wanted to search for the keys
I know this is counter to what normal RPGs have taught most people but you should grind a bit then do quests. Come back when you're like lv 5. You'll do better and I won't have to see you and others melt down in the caves or worst. Good luck anon.
Why? This game has always gotten a stream of new players and even veterans are coming back to it. It's an easier entry into roguelikes as you don't necessarily need to start out playing with perma death and it has a ton of features. It also has an interesting cult following in Japan.
Play for your pet in your home and play for beggars to start with. Use your level ups to boost performance. Around 50 performance you should be doing ok. Avoid playing around Loyter though. That asshole will only accept you if you end up being some sort of musical prodigy.
Yes, get performance to at least lv 50. If you get platinum coins, usually rewards from quests you do from the town board, see a trainer and raise the potential to as high as you can. Max is 400%. The more potential behind the skill the easier it is to level it up when you grind the skill. As you level a skill up the potential decreases so it's a fight to spend platinum coins to keep potential high so leveling a skill isn't too hard.
When you level up you get bonus skill points and you can increase skill levels that way too instead of grinding out your skill. In this case, grinding by playing a musical instrument in front of people.
You know, just getting the ensemble is enough to appease all of Palmia npcs excluding high lvl adventurers. Once you get ensemble, it all becomes smoother. You still have to pick out the right audiences for party time though at this point.
>It also has an interesting cult following in Japan.
Mind explaining further on this? I would also expect the japanese playerbase to be much more populated than here.
>not full piercing
Actually, how does the piercing attribute compare with "deals massive damage to x" attribute? Wouldn't the former be more effective?
Ensemble is a special action you get once you have 30 in performance and level up. The special action lets you and your pet play music together. In effect, you can start your own band and play around the world! Anyhow, other anon is correct that it makes things easier as your pets performance skill, if they have it, helps out when you play your instrument. Meaning it's easier to impress others doing ensemble. The interesting thing is the pet doesn't need an instrument just the performance skill to help. I guess the pet is doing vocals for your band.
Check out some of the youtube videos of Elona. You also got some really good fanart out there. I think in one of the japanese lets plays I heard the guy say that both amateur and professional game designers make mention of playing Elona in Japan.
From the wiki page
>inflicts massive damage to x
>It only applies to god, dragon and undead. No matter how many #, it still only inflicts 50% the original damage as an extra damage.
>It gives you a chance to throw an absolute piercing attak
>attack ignores PV.
What a massive gap in power. Extra damage compared to completely ignoring target's PV. Still, seems better than the other options when leveling a living weapon. Now I'm inspired to possibly craft a living spear.
Well, I'm still stuck using Vesda's gloves, so I already have the chance to throw a piercing attak. But yeah, my weapon is still fresh so maybe I'll unlock some cool stuff for it later
Don't living weapons develop the "it sucks blood" attribute when it levels high enough? I haven't really done much research on them.
Nuke rocket launcher in 1.54?
Like >>14575397 says - ensemble at level 30 will be enough for most party time quests. Do give all your pets and steed the performing skill with gene engineer if you haven't already, though. Also consider equipping a feather hat or other stuff that boosts performing skill.
11 to 15, becoming worse and worse.
Bleeding is percentagebased, so you're going to want to avoid it generally, the exceptions being for living weapon meant for sparse use, like ones full of faith or gardening or whatnot.
Look at Ano's blog.
I.e. level 11 and above. Not that I've seen a living weapon in elona+ yet.
Doing alright so far. Might want to unload whatever is weighing you down in your house though. At your level, if you hit overweight you'll probably die in seconds and I'll probably see a death message of "wtf?"
Low PV and DV, everything's gonna hit you and hit you hard. Stick to non-combat quests for the time being, maybe try a really low-level hunting and see if you can make it, might want to save scum.
>Mani of Machine
Unless you're planning on collecting god items and pets which I highly assume you would, you're better off sticking with Kumiromi if you're plan is to sing your way to victory.
So, since you're still in the beginning. For starters, keep in mind you'll probably end up scrapping your first character. Decide your future fighting style. Ranged isn't tied to melee or magic, choose whatever you prefer, just remember to check the wiki for the various differences in range. For example, laser pistols do 100% damage regardless of range, throwing weapons have a bad multiplier at long range, snipers suck at close, etc.
Decide whether you want to heavily use magic in combat or no. Dual wielding, using a shield and using medium/heavy armor penalize you casting chance by a flat, unmodifiable value. Ie: if you plan to use magic dart for long range attacks, don't go with heavy armor and shield.
Pick up traveling asap, it trains speed and randomly increases other skills and attributes.
Do quests from the quest boards in cities, preferably non-combat. Absolutely skip bodyguard and escort quests at low level, you will fail them barring a stroke of luck. Hunting are fine after gaining a few levels, but keep them at green difficulty.
The paste has additional general info, as does the wiki.
Start working towards joining a guild.
I suggest the Fighter's Guild to begin with, but up to you. The reason you can't hit for shit right now is because you're missing the combat skills:
Tactics, Two Hand, Dual Wield.
Fighter's guild is in Port Kapul. Pick up the strange scientist quest while you're there.
Get Sense Quality. This skill will tell you whether unIDed equipment you find are worth IDing or not. For now only ID items "Great" or higher quality (unless you really need an upgrade for a particular slot).
IDing every item you find is a common mistake for most rookie players and a huge gold sink (given that equipment sells to npc for almost nothing).
I'm probably biased towards a kind of play style, but this is what I would do at your stage, spoilered in case you want to figure it out yourself:
Buy a wild horse at yowyn since you have the riding skill and charisma to spare. The extra speed should make a huge difference during party time and in combat. And yeah, dump stuff. You're Burdened!
Swap your gear when you can for pieces that give PV. Resist to elements are great too, but aren't too important early-game. Swap to your feather hat when you're performing - the hat's really light so you can probably keep it in your inventory.
The next skills you may want to get are gardening, cooking, then sense quality in that order.
Gardening will help you gain more plats to learn more skills. You'll likely fail the first couple, but keep at it. It shouldn't be too bad since you have high weight lifting.
Cooking is important even if you don't have a portable cooking kit yet - cook at food processors in vernis, palmia, derphy, and at kapul, and use sinks or whatever at the other towns. Buy up flour from food vendors - bread doesn't rot, provides stat gains unlike rations, and if you don't eat it you can still use it mid-game in making picnic baskets. It also doesn't clutter up your home once you pickpocket a bread shelf (whatever that's called). Api nuts, healthy leaves, and the hairy testicles also don't rot and weight next to nothing, so have some on you all the time.
Sense quality will help you judge what gear to not bother bringing back to town to identify.
New character BMP for 1.53.1
Mixed between my own sprites gathered since Elona 1.14 and the monster girl sprite posted earlier
-Lots of big monsters
-No random pixel typos
-Good variety of mix between monstergirls/monsters/good NPC sprites
-Very few undesirable sprites
-Gods all have good sprites
-Less monstergirls/removed retarded monstergirls
-Left Sanic in
Machine guns are especially good early on, because they have a really good dice roll on damage. They do a minimum of 10 damage, unmodified, so no matter how poo your firearms skill is, you get to do a nice chunk of damage. Also helps if you crit. Other alternatives are magic dart rods (which are helpful against evasive mobs, as it always hits).
You can also buy gifts from invested vendors, specifically general stores I believe.
Okay, I just started playing again and I want to play as Remilia Scarlet. I dl'ed a sprite somewhere but my characters eyes are still showing. How do I fix this?
you can specifically choose what attributes to grow on the weapon, so its pretty useful for filling in holes in your defense/offense, or just straight up going all in on a good attribute. You can make a living weapon with like 1000 magic resist, or a weapon with 1000 magic damage. Generally, they're also more powerful than alot of static artifacts just due to the sheer amount/magnitude of the modifiers.
Alright, I'm good now.
Anything else I might want to change for roleplay purposes?
Are you sure you killed the correct bosses? Have you checked that the ring didn't get put on the same tile as a bookshelf or something?
Note that it should appear as a blue ring, not as <Palmia Pride>, unless you have already ID it or possibly incredibly high Sense.
If all else fails turn on wm and wish for it, then turn it off.
Probably my headcanon, but I always pegged Remi as more of the warmage type with being able to generate her own Gungnir spear and all that.
Also, you'll need a whole lot more charisma.
Eh, I don't really see much difference honestly. I rarely ever read death messages because I was too busy actually playing the game. Ditto for not using chat, too busy playing the game. On principle I don't like my game losing features but considering what was loss, it's something I can get over.
How are you guys enjoying the new enemies in 1.53? I'm finding them pretty fun and interesting. I mainly do the void instead of dungeon diving so my experience may or may not be a bit different for others.
The Alkonost was interesting to me because it's been a very long time since I've gotten a death hex stuck on me. It loves teleporting around as well. I was always wondering if the death hex scales. I have my answer now, it doesn't. 9999 dmg seems to be the cap damage. Nevertheless, I wonder when you normally first start seeing these guys. Might be an interesting fight for non veteran players.
The Black Wing is a cool looking monster. Has a pretty cool looking attack and loves to stack bleed. The vampkin seems like a souped up pumpkin. Teleports around and throws even more obnoxious potions than its weaker kin. Loves throwing silence potions, potions of disaster, sulfuric acid, and has access to the potions of its weaker kin.
The last enemy I have in my picture is just an example of a group of enemies that actually gave me pause. They kind of look like succubus carnies. All of them seem to be able to silence you. Some of them can cause dim and insanity like the one in my picture. Aside from that each one of them has a unique form of attack. The one pictured likes to shadow step.
Another one I met surprised me as my screen blacked out and then all of a sudden I saw walls destroyed and enemies beside me dead. It seemed to have done 20,000 damage in what looked like a breath attack. The blue haired succubus of the bunch might be the scariest one. I only met her once but I don't know if I was unlucky or if this was what she normally does but when she appeared the rest of the girls showed up as well. So maybe she summoned them. At any rate, she managed to give me pause which has made me decide to hunt down every one of these ladies to make as maids in my palace.
I just have to find them now in normal dungeons...
The Black Wing has been constantly killing my bell until I force fed her some hero cheese. This game sure is punishing to low hp units, now I've hit a brick wall due to that despite being a golem.
What value do I input in elosnack for gender if I want to change it to female? Currently it's 0 and changing it to 1, 2, and -1 so far has not done anything, it stayed the same despite my efforts.
Yeah that sounds rough. I guess my advice is to maybe seek out items like the crimson plate that diminishes bleeding. Probably have to constantly gene engineer monsters into the bell to level it and grow its HP on top of what you're already doing with the hero cheese. Take heart though that running into walls in progress is part of the normal ebb and flow of Elona. You'll overcome them like I did eventually.
The game does seem to be getting more difficult though. Even though there are ways of shutting down these enemies it's still rough. Alone the enemies may not be so bad but in groups where each enemy has something special that it can do to cripple you it can lead to things going bad very fast.
I'm pretty convinced that the early parts of Elona you can do well with just one mode of attack but later on it seems the game forces you to diversify. I'm seeing myself get silenced more, suffer insanity, and other stuff that makes casting rough making me switch to rods when this happens.
Then there's enemies with ungodly amounts of PV which makes physical attacks a bad idea but spells a decent choice. Then you have enemies with tons of resists but average PV making physical attacks better. The sleeping giant comes to mind. I usually use my gun on them.
Good luck to you adventurers out there. Especially you upcoming ones. The game has the tools for you to succeed if you put in the grind but I feel sorry for you guys because the game might be harder than it was for me when I was going through it.
