| Ronin Strategy Guide |
(could probably also be called "How to get more adventures per day, guide")
Q. Why did I write this guide ?
A. Because everytime I ascend I always forget to buy food/booze/other items that could have saved me lots of turns in ronin. Items that are suited for my class (Mus, Myst or Mox), and or items I can use at an early stage of ronin, like good food/booze for level 2-3-4 etc, and that was when ronin was 600 turns, now with 1000 its even worse.
Now I have written this and not even used it yet because i'm still in HCO, so if you think of other good items I could add here let me know and I will gladly add them to the list. Also I might have made errors in stats or other characteristics, if you see any, please tell me so I can correct them. Also this is for everyone (n00bs included), I tried to add a bit of info on fullness and everything so everyone would understand how things work.
I have seperated in four different categories, the things that can add adventures to your kol day (adding to the 40 given by default everyday) thus accelerating the goal of 1000 adventures to get free of ronin :
3. Spleen items
4. Equip and other items
In each of those categories, I have listed a bunch of good items to buy or make yourself, with their respective stats and the level you can use them at. Now as for a strategy, common sense prevails, this means adventure for a while and level up, then when you run out of adventures, take out a few items that you can use/consume at the level you are at.
If you are very close to getting up one level, maybe take an item that gives you the stat you need (main stat) to level up and then take out better items. Keep the best drink for last, when you are at 14 drunk (duh). Also, if you must mix a drink with ingredients (like TPS drinks), make sure you don't forget to keep a couple adventures to do so, which has happened to me before ..
Same thing for equipements, wait until the end of your adventuring day to take out whatever equipements you will be able to wear that day, depending on its requirements, it would be quite stupid to waste a pull the first day on an item you cannot use after all.
Some items listed here can only be obtained from the bounty hunter, now I would probably not waste a filthy lucre for that, but I still listed them here because they were pretty good items, adventurewise.
Remember you only have 20 pulls each day from storage, the first day or two are probably the more tricky ones, then after you have pulled most of the equipements you are going to use you find yourself with a lot of pulls, for twinkly wads for example if you cannot pulverize them yourself.
Now, I will not tell you what to buy, mainly because it depends on what class you are going for next and also what kind of meat you are prepared to waste on good/better stuff. Most of the stuff listed here is under 5k, so you can easily stock up on lots of food/booze.
Here are the categories detailed, and with an approx. mall price which may (read "is most likely") not be up to date..
1. Food (mmmm, doughnut) :
