I won the 12/12 daily, but just can’t get those higher scores…
The temporary thread for Slay the Spire daily score comparisons until something more elegant comes along
On the second floor, I got greedy and presented myself with 6HP left in front of the second elite. I really though I was done there.
Today’s surprisingly easy.
That one was a remarquably close call: on the second floor, a rare room Elite spawn killed me, and I was miraculously saved by a 10% potion I had lying in my inventory (I think it gave bonus points at the end of the run by the way, if @robc04 is still looking for that sort of info). With 6 hit points left, I was about to meet my doom by entering another Elite room, but I had a small stop at the trader before… and the coveted Mind Blast happened.
Talk about a turn of events.
The last 2 runs would have been tricky, if not for ransacking the many shops for their potions inventory. I did it a bit out of despite at first, because the shops weren’t proposing anything of interest, but it turned a few encounters (and an elite fight, in particular) into walks in the park. Without them I’d probably have lost a lot of health, or the run.
But I’m so good at this game!
To be explicit: it wasn’t skill, but the power to choose and fight each and every Elite in this daily made for crazy scoring.
This was a lot of fun - I also made a beeline for almost as many boss fights as I could (I upgraded some cards a few times instead, which probably lowered my score a bit) but I won handily and by the end felt almost unkillable. Most fights I had full 110 health, with 6 or 7 buffers ready to protect me, and plenty of block to keep me from using the buffers to begin with. So much safety. I wish I had more energy this run, so I could amplify my Echo Form’s, but man, what a freaking blast.
That was a fun run.
Mine was somewhat the reverse of yours: I was constantly low on HP, and I have been really close to dying a couple of times especially on floor 2. Floor 3 was much safer thanks to some insane offense, because I had something I bet you wish you had gotten: the Necronomicon! With Echo Form, here comes the legendary triple Thunder Strike that even your snake lady can’t resist.
Oh man, that would have been amazing.
It was a fun run. I picked Aggregate in the opening, and used it as an excuse to add cards (even curses) whenever I could. This ended in a stupid and large deck, but one which synergized nicely, for once
I don’t think a run can get easier than today’s. Strategy spelled out for you right from the start.
Yeah, that was less than ideal. I think I was actually doing pretty well, but that Gremlin Leader fight is hard as it is without any real options for resting before you get to it. Rough.
