Talk:Falls-From-Sky (Hard Mode)
Special attack prediction
While I suspect that there may be no correlation between the messages given when blind and the actual special attack used in the 2nd round, I have a few data points, all taken in consecutive attempts with minimal difficulty level (200 kisses)
Attempt 1: "You hear a shuffling sound" / cold and physical attack
Attempt 2: "You hear a twig snap" / hot and stench attack
Attempt 3: "You hear the sound of crunching leaves" / hot and stench attack
Attempt 4: "You hear a twig snap" / spooky and sleaze attack
Attempt 5: "You hear a shuffling sound" / successfully countered with "Hide behind a tree" (would have been spooky/sleaze, I suppose)
3500 HP with 5 kisses in hard mode 4000 HP with 6 kisses. 1700 attack, 1530 def. Damage cap 166--Lotsofphil (talk) 00:19, 8 August 2013 (UTC) 2000 HP and 900 attack/defence at 2 kisses. From Manuel base looks to be 1500 HP and 700 attack/defence. Fits with (1000+500/Kiss) HP, (500+200/kiss) Att/Def (assuming the above datapoint had a 10% defence reducer on).
Post-fight (2 kisses), Manuel says 928 attack, 833 defense, 50 initiative. With +30 ML from radio and lapdog. I don't know if this is of any use whatsoever, as I don't know whether the post-fight Manuel stats are normal mode, hard mode, 1 kiss, or what. (Oh, and I had used Psalm of Pointiness.) --Greycat (talk) 14:01, 2 September 2013 (UTC)
The giant octopus will give blindness when it critical hits you. However, killing it removes it for the rest of your ascension. Some friends and I use this monster instead of white lightning because it doesn't use any drunkness and it works well, as long as you don't accidentally kill it. Would this be worth noting as a alternative to white lightning on the page? --Andrew3 (talk) 05:29, 21 September 2013 (UTC)
Alternate solution for 2 or less kisses
Blindness, intiative to get the jump (I was at +55% on a 2 kiss encounter), funkslinging capability, spectral jelly or ghost protocol (they share the same counter, so only one is capable of being used), several different love songs, ensure that your stats are up enough that the love songs do the capped amount of damage (254/236).
- First round go in blind, get jump and funk sling two different love songs
- Second round funksling jelly/protocol and love song
- Third-fifth rounds funksling two different love songs
- Reap rewards.
I imagine a similar tactic will work for other damage dealing items that hit that high (cursed cannonball and the like). Thinking on it, optimal would be to funksling the cursed item and an off element lovesong for three damage sources per round (and two on the spectral round). That may enable a kill at the 3 kiss level via this method. --MageRed (talk) 06:51, 25 October 2013 (UTC)
In case it matters, the 'special attack' message doesn't seem to be consistent with that of Falls-From-Sky. At least, one of them isn't, and I don't see this recorded anywhere.
