Not to be confused with The Avatar of Sneaky Pete (Naughty Sorceress equivalent in Avatar of Boris).

Bigbike.gif

Avatar of Sneaky Pete is the Spring 2014 special challenge path, introduced on February 15, 2014. Players may select this path in Valhalla, instead of a dietary challenge path. Its description in The Bureau of Reincarnation reads, "You're filled with the spirit of Sneaky Pete, the Legendary Cool Guy of the Times of Old. Armed with sneaky thief skills and a cool talking motorcycle, you'll be the toast of the town."

You become an Avatar of Sneaky Pete, a moxie class with skills that rely on the love or hate of your studio audience. You have no access to permed skills, no familiars, a small stomach, but a large capacity for booze.

Restrictions

  • Items
    • No access to your bookshelf.
    • No access to the fax machine, with the message:
      Have you ever seen a cool person use a fax machine? I didn't think so.
  • Familiars
    • You cannot access any familiars. If you try to take one with you, you get:
      Familiars weren't cool enough for Pete.
    • This includes putting familiars into the Crown of Thrones or the Buddy Bjorn.
    • Instead, your motorcycle will serve as its replacement. You can upgrade one of its parts at every even level, which gives bonus effects.
  • Skills
    • No access to any non-Avatar skills. If you try to learn a skill from a book, such as Summer Nights, you get:
      Pete was too cool for books.
    • You can Pickpocket, like other Moxie classes. Note that pickpocketing decreases approval, even if you don't steal anything.
  • Locations
    • Since you have no guild affiliation, you cannot open Fernswarthy's tower or basement.
    • You cannot adventure in The Sea. Attempting to talk to An Old Man gives the following message:
      That shack you saw on the main map was just a picture of a shack drawn on the ground.
    • You cannot donate meat at Sneaky Pete's Gate.

Divergences

Class

Rather than playing any of the traditional 6 classes, you will play as an Avatar of Sneaky Pete with entirely different skills.

  • Your main stat is Moxie.
  • You will not be accepted into any of the traditional guilds. You will not be able to use a guild to unlock any quests or areas.
    Sneaky Pete wouldn't join any organization that wasn't cool enough to already have him as a member.
  • The tavern non-combat says you are a DB.

Quests

  • You won't need a Wand of Nagamar for the Naughty Sorceress fight. Instead of her third form, you will fight The Avatar of Jarlsberg.
    • You will face the first two forms of the Sorceress, and then The Avatar of Jarlsberg, all in sequence without a break. The Sorceress will strip your effects as she usually does.
    • The entire boss fight sequence will take 2 adventures if you have them, but you can begin the fight (and hopefully win) with just 1 adventure left.

Avatar

Your avatar is replaced by: Peteavatar.gif Peteavatar f.gif

When wearing outfits, the outfit avatar overrides this avatar. A custom avatar is not affected.

Audience

Sneaky Pete always has a studio audience. The audience's opinion of him will fluctuate depending on his actions, causing certain skills to have increased or reduced effectiveness. Audience Love and Hate occupy the same resource "slot" and work in opposition to one another; one of either Love or Hate will always be at 0 (or both). They are both capped at 30. This cap is increased to 50 if you have a Sneaky Pete's leather jacket equipped (popped or otherwise).

The following actions manipulate audience approval ratings:

The following skills scale based on audience ratings:

  • Catchphrase: Increased damage and delevel based on audience Love
  • Rev Engine: Each cast gives you turns of All Revved Up equal to your Love or Hate, with a minimum of 5 turns.
  • Biker Swagger: Each cast gives you turns of Biker Swagger equal to your Love or Hate, with a minimum of 10 turns.
  • Insult: Increased damage and delevel based on audience Hate
  • Born Showman: +1 Moxie per 2 Love or Hate
  • Throw Party: Drops more ingredients the more the audience loves you
  • Incite Riot: Drops more items the more the audience hates you
  • Snap Fingers: Stun duration increases with audience Love
  • Check Mirror: You require at least 20 Love to change your hairstyle to a Cowlick, and 20 Hate to change it to a Fauxhawk.
  • Make Friends: On top of the MP cost, using this skill requires at least 20 Love and increase audience Hate by 20.

Skills

You begin with two skills:

  • Btee.gif Best Dressed - Allows you to equip shirts, and also passively grants +1 Moxie stat per fight.
  • Mug.gif Mug for the Audience - Grants 1-2 Moxie stats when used, and increases audience engagement by 1 Love. Requires initiative to use.

Instead of purchasing skills, you can visit Sneaky Pete's Gate to learn new skills. You may learn skills from 3 trees: Lovable Rogue, Motorcycle Guy, and Dangerous Rebel. Each skill costs one skill point to learn, regardless of rank.

You begin with 1 skill point, plus 1 point for each normal (softcore) Avatar of Sneaky Pete ascension completed, and 2 points for each hardcore Avatar of Sneaky Pete ascension completed. (This means that on your first AoSP run, you'll only start with 1 skill point.) You gain 1 additional skill point each time you level up, up to level 15. The jug of Sneaky Pete's Mojo, an item from Mr. Store, produces 15 shots of Sneaky Pete's Mojo; when used, a shot permanently adds 1 skill point to your pool.

You cannot skip ranks within a skill tree. In order to learn a 3rd-rank skill, you must first learn the 1st-rank and 2nd-rank skills from that same tree, and so on.

Motorcycle

Bigbike.gif Bigbike anim.gif

As an Avatar of Sneaky Pete, your motorcycle will be your trusty companion. By default, its factory parts are just for show, but at every even level (2, 4, 6, etc.) the bike starts moving and you can click on it to get to Upping Your Grade, where you can upgrade the bike in various ways. Each part can be upgraded once, and you cannot change parts once upgraded.

Tires:

  • Racing Slicks: Peel Out 20 more times per day
  • Spiky Tires: Pop Wheelie deals more damage
  • Snow Tires: Allows you to ascend the Peak, right to Groar (skips goat cheese, ore, eXtreme Slope/Ninjas, and the panicking Yetis)

Gas Tank:

Headlight:

Cowling:

  • Ghost Vacuum: Every combat in a Cyrpt sub-zone removes 1 additional Evil from that zone; deals passive physical damage to undead.
  • Rocket Launcher: Deals damage at the start of all combats, and while fighting on The Battlefield, kills an additional 3 soldiers of whichever side you're fighting.
  • Sweepy Red Light: +5 Stats per fight

Muffler:

Seat:

  • Massage Seat: Regenerate 5-6 HP and MP per Adventure
  • Deep-Seat Cushions: Find 20-30 Meat after combat
  • Sissy Bar: -30 to Monster Level

Strategy

Rewards

  • If this is your first run as the Avatar of Sneaky Pete, opening the letter from King Ralph XI unlocks a new class tattoo. There is also a sparkly tattoo available upon completion of a hardcore run as an Avatar of Sneaky Pete.
  • Players will receive a Thwaitgold dragonfly statuette upon defeating the Naughty Sorceress.
  • Reaching Level 30 as an Avatar of Sneaky Pete makes you eligible for the Cool Guy trophy.
    • Freeing the King, or dropping Avatar of Sneaky Pete, will make you ineligible for the trophy.

History

  • Originally, you could do your second and further Motorbike upgrades one level before the animation showed up; however, this bug was corrected sometime before 11:00 AM Arizona time on February 16, 2014.
  • For at least some period of time, you could use a combat macro to both Mug for the Audience and Pickpocket in the same battle. This was fixed on February 22, 2014.
  • Prior to the NS Lair revamp on January 1, 2015, the lair had a few divergences for this path:
    • You did not need a star starfish for the lair, just a star weapon and a star hat. Retrieving the sheet music gave this message:
      You deftly grab the sheet music.
    • You did not need familiars to defeat the Sorceress's familiars. When facing them:
      You back up your motorcycle and jump right over the sorceress' pets, like some sort of... Knievel.
