Quest Progression

Mr. Store Items

The functionality of many Mr. Store items have been impacted by the dependence on Gs, rendering some especially important, while some others become greatly inhibited as a result.

Note that this list only includes items that are in standard at the time when this challenge was restricted as such.

IOTMs


  • Clan VIP Lounge key - It still remains effective, but some of the more recent furniture additions have lost some of their effectiveness.
  • Rockin' Robin - This IotY does not function at all in this challenge path.
  • Optimistic Candle - This IotY does not function at all in this challenge path.
  • Garbage Fire - Although the burning newspaper is still usable to provide some decent equipment (all of which are usable due to being burning), none of the consumables are usable.
  • KoL Con 13 snowglobe - Although unreliable, you may get lucky and get some good food/booze, which can be hard to come by in hardcore. The minor substat bonuses don't hurt either, especially since there aren’t many good choices for off-hand items.
  • Potted tea tree - While the path is under Standard restrictions, tea is not usable, but autoselling the tea from shaking is good for 90 Meat per day.
