That’s ascension #3 completed, and it was by far the best yet. With the help of AC, SHC and Brimstone Boxers, I managed to cut four days off my previous HCNP ascension (nine days off my last ascension, but then that was kittycore). I easily smoked my target of a 12-dayer (hah!).

This run had a pretty terrible start. As usual, I fell short of hitting level 4 on day 1. Spending most of my Meat on MP was an extremely bad idea and probably set me back a fair bit. However, I got my act together on day 2. Having Advanced Cocktailcrafting made a large difference since I didn’t have to scramble to gather 5,000 Meat ASAP. Instead, I could quite lazily gather Meat for vacations and a wand. The decision to powerlevel in the Cola Wars Battlefield was a good one. Day 3 Liver of Steel was great for me. Beyond this point, I had some nasty RNG, but between the Boxers and the BBB, I managed to overcome it. In particular, the long Goatlet and Orc Chasm really hurt. The Castle wasn’t overly long though; the Pyramid was reasonable too. On the other hand, the Palindome was awful. Missing that one semi-rare didn’t really hurt me too much.

Overall, I’m quite happy with this run, despite a few major mistakes. It isn’t up on koldb yet, but when it is it should be at #32 on the list of 0–2 skill Hardcore runsIt’s at #32 on the list of 0–2 skill Hardcore runs, with lucre on 8/9 days.

I’ll be perming Mad Looting Skillz from this run.

My next ascension will be a BM PM for Pastamastery. I expect it will be rather more difficult than this one—I hear Pastamancers have a hard time in Bad Moon. No matter; I will persevere. A bounty on day 1 is possible but unlikely. The Knoll can be cruel. I’ll probably get it by tomorrow if not today, since I need to go there anyway.
