Heavy Rains Guide

From The PigiWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

DISCLAIMER This plan works for me and I have every IotM, skill, etc. that anyone would ever want. If the script breaks on your character, I don't know why it is breaking. Proxy can be finicky, but when it works, it works really well.

This guide is for people who want to automate softcore heavy rains runs in two days while spending very little time on the computer.

Contents

Download Proxy

The latest version can be found here

Add Altered Files

Which Files?

Download files from dropbox Replace the files in proxy with these in the scripts folder (the file and folder names are kept the same so you can find them easily)

What is in these files?

Adds some useful buffs like wry smile Use the fist turkey Does a better job with familiar choice Banishes a bunch of monsters using Thunder Clap and Pantsgiving PADL check problem fixed Does not waste time getting the hippy gear Equips the pool skimmer Kills most rain bosses (you can easily set the macro file to abort for bosses you lose to if you have trouble)

Create a Combat Macro

Go to "Options/Combat/Manage Combat Macros" in KOL Create a new macro called "heavy rains" copying the File:Heavy rains combat macro.txt for this file. Note that the macro uses belch the rainbow in a few spots. If you do not have the skill, just switch to sauce storm.

Create Many Chat Macros

This just makes life a lot easier by not having to cut and paste from another page. You do have to keep track on which macro to use and make sure that when you fail to pull an item, you buy it in the mall and try again.

You should have 5 pulls, rain man, a clover, and 1 lightning ball to sort out how to get through the tower. The combat macro will take down 5 tower monsters, so not need to worry about those items. You have a two options here:

1. Let proxy automate everything. It will shore for the last tower item and not use dumb mud. It will farm some tower items and waste turns assumes.

2. Do the tower by hand. Proxy will make things go a little faster, but you will need to get your own dungeon tokens, do the skeleton key by hand, and do a lot more clicking. You can defeat 5 tower monsters using the combat macro.

Proxy will abort at the Rain King.

/equip off-hand green and us the combat macro. Done!

What do I Need to Pull This Off?

The really important things are:

  • at least 2 rain skills to start with
  • Saucemaven, Saucegeyser, Saucestorm, Curse of Weak Sauce, Cocoon, Ode, Smooth Movements, Sonota, Sympathy, and are all pretty much required, along with probably most of the top 20 or so skills
  • As far as IotM quality items: Rain-Doh, Smith's Tome, Reanimator, Folder Holder, and Thor's Pliers are probably essential.
  • that said, there are a lot of pulls that can easily be skipped, like the Mr. A Jr, without causing you run to be an extra day.
  • several players have had 100% success with this plan. There is a lot of room for error. Some runs end with 60 turns to spare.
  • If necessary, pulling spice melange may be worthwhile. Also remember that you probably have an extra stone wool worth 3 turns in your inventory.
