One day attempts not only take banked skills, but use of said skills and a lot of luck. Its possible to do a 1 dayer with and without sticks, with skills. After that, its all ability and luck.

Its gonna take you 20 days plus to do the booze HC run leadin which youll need, though.

Hey Jump...

You have a good shot at it. Like I've been saying. You deserve to give it to the RNG... hopefully she doesn't feel the same way. G'Luck and keep us posted.

Do it while you can, once NS 13 hits you won't have the chance to do it again

If you can't get close with no hardcore lead-up without sticks then don't bother. If you can get pretty close then you will have a chance.

Hmm. Well i wanted to see how far i could get today... I got about... 2/5 through level 10 in 243 adv. No scarf, no sticks, no lips, no MCD (getting a gnomish skill)

Is that close?

It would be, if you can handle ML++++ (scarf, MCD, sickles, etc)

You seem to have just about every skill you'd want to attempt this, so it looks like you have that bit covered. Getting 2/5 of the way through level 10 doesn't say much about a one dayer though, it does shows that you can level fast enough, how many pulls did you have left, how many tower items, etc.

As for the HCB S lead-in, you really should do it. Looking at your profile I see that you don't have a scarf, which helps a lot in a 1 dayer since you'll be adventuring in some pretty low level areas farming instead of just powerleveling like in a 2 dayer. Also the saving of 3-4 pulls is pretty huge.

If you want to do a practise run on the cheap, doing a 2 dayer and just donating what SBW's and air's would yeild in stats while keeping an eye on pulls and turn count should work, and give you an idea of what you're up against.

Good luck. :)

It would be impossible to do a 1 dayer with no HC leadin, so you might as well get your scarf at the same time, and use the whiskeys to help the run along.

In this case (ie, not using sticks). Because a 1 dayer without a HC leadin has been done.

Yes, but it takes 3 sticks and a ton of skill, luck, banked skills, and capital to do.

Smartass :D

Darthdud did a one day run sans stick and no HC lead in, but it did take him three or four tries and he is one of the best softcore speed ascenders out there. So yeah, unless you can borrow some sticks you'll probably need to just suck it up and do a HC run.

Hopefully someone can lend me some sticks (you know who you are :wink: )

I was thinking for the attempt, a muscle sign would be best, for the screwdriver and meatcar components. Would i be correct in thinking this?

I am going to dive into HC soon after a few more skills, even if I fail this attempt i wont give up (and hey, free scarf from the HC run.)

PS. Donate for the new equipment? My mind says yes.

Definite yes on the IotM being helpful for you, it'll save you a pull or 10 turns in the arena, plus it can be used on any familiar.

Its a good 60% or more skill, actually. Luck definitely comes into play, but having the KOL knowledge of how to do a proper run, along with being able to be fully flexible when it comes to pulls and drops is essential for being able to do the 1 day.
