Slow and Steady is the Summer 2014 special challenge path, introduced on May 15, 2014. Players may select this path in Valhalla, instead of a dietary challenge path. Its description in The Bureau of Reincarnation reads, "You get 100 Adventures per day, no less and no more."


Restrictions

Divergences

  • You get 100 turns each day, instead of 40 turns. This includes the start of the run, and each rollover.

Strategy

See Slow and Steady/Strategy.

Rewards

  • Finishing a Slow and Steady run that began while it was still the current special challenge path -- that is, between May 15th, 2014, and August 14th, 2014 -- gives players 100 (in Hardcore) or 50 (in Normal) extra karma points the next time they visit Valhalla.
  • You received a bottled day for completing a Normal or Hardcore run while this was the current challenge path.
    • It was revealed on the forums that the bottled day will stop dropping after Slow and Steady has stopped being the active challenge path on August 15th, even if you started the ascension before that date.
  • Hardcore runs also receive the standard stainless steel equipment.
  • Players will receive a Thwaitgold wheel bug statuette upon defeating the Naughty Sorceress.

History

  • Before May 18, 2014 players on this path could not access An Old Man. Attempting to do so gave:
    That shack you saw on the main map was just a picture of a shack drawn on the ground.
  • This changed with a trivial update on May 18, 2014 which said:
    You can now Slowly and Steadily drown in The Sea if you want.
