These SRs directly reduce the amount of turns required to complete quests. Semi-rares are listed in roughly the order you'd encounter them in a run. If the SR is a monster encounter instead of a noncombat, ensure that you can actually beat the monster for its drops.
|Cobb's Knob Kitchens||Knob Goblin Elite Guard Captain||KGE outfit||For the level 5 quest. This is the quickest way to get this outfit, which also unlocks the Dispensary after learning the password.|
|Itznotyerzitz Mine||7-Foot Dwarf Foreman||Mining Gear outfit||For the level 8 quest. Requires +234% item drops to guarantee the outfit. This SR is most effective when you have access to Unaccompanied Miner; without it, using clovers may be a better option.|
|The Hidden Temple||Baa'baa'bu'ran||1-3 stone wools||For the level 11 quest. +100% items will guarantee 2 wools, which is all you need for level 11, but getting the third gives +3 turngen. Using wool for cave bar leveling may no longer be useful, as they are limited to 1/day in Hardcore/Ronin.|
|Castle Top Floor||All The Rave||Mick's IcyVapoHotness Inhaler
(10 turns of +200% meat)
|For the Nuns quest.|
|The Limerick Dungeon||The Bleary-Eyed Cyclops||cyclops eyedrops
(10 turns of +100% item)
|Best used during Exterminate the Filthworm Infestation and when farming tomb ratchets in The Middle Chamber. For tomb ratchets which are 20% base drop, if you can hit +400% item drops without these, they're not a great SR.|
|The Castle in the Clouds in the Sky (Ground Floor)||Ahead of the Game||possibility potion
(10 turns of +100% initiative)
|For helping in reaching enough initiative to get a higher placement in the "Fastest Adventurer" contest for the Naughty Sorceress Quest.|
|The Red Zeppelin||Red Fox||red foxglove|
(10 turns of +75% Initiative & +200 Max HP)
|8-Bit Realm||Some Bricks Do, In Fact, Hang in the Air||fire flower
(10 turns of +50 Hot Damage)
| For helping in reaching enough elemental damage to get a higher placement in the elemental contest for the Naughty Sorceress Quest.
Only one of these is required, and the required one can be revealed early with A Telescope with at least one upgrade.
|The Haunted Kitchen||Play Misty For Me||freezerburned ice cube|
(10 turns of +50 Cold Damage)
|The Spooky Forest||Blaaargh! Blaaargh!||fake blood|
(10 turns of +50 Spooky Damage)
|Guano Junction||Le Chauve-Souris du Parfum||Eau de Guaneau|
(10 turns of +50 Stench Damage)
|Whitey's Grove||Monty of County Crisco||bag of lard|
(10 turns of +50 Sleaze Damage)
These SRs give you more Adventures instead of saving them.
|The Haunted Pantry||The Pilsbury Doughjerk||3x tasty tart||EPIC-quality food, 1 fullness each|
|The Sleazy Back Alley||In the Still of the Alley||3x distilled fortified wine||EPIC-quality booze, 1 drunkenness each|
|The Outskirts of Cobb's Knob||Lunchboxing||1-2x Knob pasty
1-2x thermos full of Knob coffee
|EPIC-quality food and booze, 1 fullness/drunkenness each. Only 3 items are produced per lunchbox.|
These SRs do not help with ascension-relevant quests or turngen, but are still of interest.
|The Valley of Rof L'm Fao||Bad ASCII Art||All components for a 64735 scroll||For the Valley sidequest.|
|The Haunted Boiler Room||Bram the Stoker||Bram's choker (+10% Moxie, +3 PvP Fights, -5% Combat Frequency)||Additional source of non-combat frequency. While it's better to Fax this semi-rare, this can be a considered for paths that lack one.|
|The Brinier Deepers||The Haggling||50 turns of Fishy||Grants Fishy without using food, booze, or valuable/limited resources|
|The Mer-Kin Outpost||A Drawer of Chests||15-20 sand dollars|
|An Octopus's Garden||moister oyster||giant pearl
(autosells for 12k Meat)
|Some easy Meat when no other SR seems worth it.|
|The Haunted Billiards Room||A Shark's Chum||Permanent Pool Skill bonus||Passive +1-10 bonus to your pool skill that carries across ascensions. Makes unlocking the Library easier.|
The amount added to your pool skill is based on a certain formula. This semi-rare become unnecessary after the 25th time.
|The Purple Light District||Maybe It's a Sexy Snake!||lewd playing card
(52 of them creates a deck of lewd playing cards)
|Increased Moxie and high sleaze damage on a off-hand item. Requires only 22 Myst to equip.|
- The very first SR in a run will occur 70-80 turns into the run. After a semi-rare adventure opportunity, the next will occur after 160-200 turns (or 100-120 turns in Oxygenarian runs).
- Eating an optimal dog will set the SR counter to 0, making the next one happen on the very next turn.
- Drinking a Lucky Lindy will reveal the SR counter.
- Eating a fortune cookie will reveal the SR counter mixed in with two random, meaningless numbers.
- Bad ASCII Art was an ascension-relevant semi-rare until the level 9 quest was revamped on November 14, 2012.
