Novice Questions...

Post by Zims_daddy » Sat Feb 03, 2007 3:43 pm

Good Morning, Everyone!

I'm realtively new to Usurper. Been playing for about three weeks on a few different BBS's. I've been sticking with Troll Assassins and have two that are level 39 & 40...the other is level 14 on Vortex.

Any pointers that I haven't learned so far?

I have my drinks at Orb's, go beer stealing, and get into the bar brawls, and get my massages from the gym (I usually get the White Water for the extra healing potions).

I'm still trying to figure out the whole \"love connection\" thing and what it takes to successfully steal from the NPC's without getting wiped out.

Here are some other questions I have:

What are the best steroids to take to build stregnth?

What are the best vitamins and other than give experience, what is their purpose?

Roughly, how long does it take to seduce a player of the opposite sex to where he/she will fall in love and want to marry you?

Other than losing to the Supreme Being, is there another way to build up your hit points?

What's the point in having items identified by the Magic Shop when the Weapons & Armor shop will still pay half for them and you can see the benefit they have?

Ok...I guess that's it for now. I've been playnig around with the Indian wrestling lately and I don't really have an interest in summoning a demon against someone (unless there's a benefit).

Take care and stay warm this weekend...we've gotten 18 inches of snow here in Michigan in the last 24 hours...ARGH!

From what I see:

White Water massages are only good for me if you use all three sessions as that and you get a shitload of potions. Other than that, you'll still run out of them and have to buy them, whereas using the Tox Uth'at(sp) increases your defense, I think. I wish as the Gym controllers, we could invent new massages and gauge what they provide for us. I go with the Tox though.

\"Love Connection\" is fun to play with the NPC's or other users if they agree to what you wanna do. NPC's, I've noticed that the chicks are a little more... 'loose' and will do quite a bit you ask them. While you could use all of your Intimate Sessions with them asking them to bang, they won't always do it and you'll waste quite a few. I usually start off with the easier stuff and work my way up until we bang every time. It's worth the 12k XP anyway. And you can get the chicks pregnant, have a kid and I think that turns into a benefit too. I just kinda wish we could sell them in the Evil Deeds thing though. :P

Stealing from th NPC's might depend on your level for Thievery. Go into the bar... what is it, Bob's Beer Hut? Go in there and use some thieving skills. You can either lift a good chunk of change, get caught, or get arrested... I've never noticed the better time to do it than any other or if you can ever gauge when you'll get caught. Chivalry and Darkness points might matter... I really don't know. 'Cause I've noticed my dudes can steal from the NPC's more often when my \"Thieving Level\" says \"Pretty Good\".

I don't let my dudes do drugs.

Vitamins either... just never got into it.

Seducing takes a little while, but with successful \"Go to bed\" uses, she'll come around and your friendship level will raise. One of my dudes, I'll go to the same chick and it'll pretty well raise every other day I guess. I've never watched it, but I've done it several times and married NPC chicks.

Building hit points: No idea other than increasing armor and using the daily Wishing Well for them.

No idea about the identifying items... seems useless to me. I just get whatever my guy needs.

Hope this helps. Lenny will definitely know more than I do. I'm not a Novice player, but I'm no Expert either. :P

Works for me, Xburner. I just took over a town in one of my games and I'm thinking about going for kingship sometime soon.

I've never taken a chick to bed yet. But now that I know you canpretty much just jump to it, my guys will be getting laid more often.

I found out the roids add to the strength, but wasn't sure which one was particularly better. The DEMON may cost the most, but I've seen better results with the #9 roid more often.

Never thought of stealing in the bBar, I've always done it in the dorm and got into more fights. I'll have to look into dexterity and agility to see if thay have an effect.

I gotta go take care of the 18 inches of snow we've been bombed with, then I'll play later.

Take care and thanks!

Well, I think that even using 'roids, you affect your mental stability just like sniffing glue or any other kind of drugs. I'm not sure what it does, 'cause I keep my guys drug free so they'll be more efficient killers/destruction bringers.

Ok...Went and had sex with the girls and knocked them both up. No marriage yet (they don't love me...sniffle...but they must like something else! :D )

So, there'll be some little bastards running around.

Also did some thievery at the bar and made some small change.

I'm figuring I may need to form a team to survive the deeper levels (50+)...got my ass handed me today on one board.

Hahaha... yeah. Too bad we don't get to name them ourselves.

Teamplay definitely does help in the dungeons, but if you're getting hurt/killed, you might wanna hit up your defenses and armor whenever you can.
