Those monsters scale to your stats... so no matter how high you go, it won't help :nervous: There are a few things you can do to tilt things in your favour though:

First, forget about boosting stats, particularly Moxie...

See, the problem is, I've used up a lot of adventures on the hoboflex due to lack of time. So we are way, way, above, but I can't reliably land a hit and a single combat chews through about half my hitpoints.

Note to self: Don't start a BM run during Crimbo, next year.*

*You can't get to Hagnk's, and therefore can't get the free-pulls.  :mad:

I've never done a BM run (It's actually the next thing I'm planning to do, Although I'm going to be badass and do it all Black Cat). Can you still get into the clan/hobopolis?

You can use the gym equipment during a BM run. I haven't tried the jukebox, and would imagine that it doesn't work.

As for Hobopolis, well, the option to enter the basement exists. I don't bring my alts in there, though.

Huzzah! A 'depleted Grimacite kneecapping stick' is mine!

I can finally start helping The Penguin Mafia wipe the treacherous Mutated Elves off the face of Crimbo Town ('08).

Well done. I just spent 150 turns fighting the Penguins (with Transcendent Olfaction) to get a Psycho sweater and the damn thing still hasn't dropped.

Ridiculously low drop rates on the stuff, says I.

Yeah, one finally dropped for me yesterday too. Funny thing about all this Christmas stuff is that I'm already level 29 and I haven't even started my basement dive yet.

It picks you up in one betentacled claw, then picks up another adventurer in the other. You hear the other adventurer say, "Hi, I'm White Nite. Do you get smashed into people here often?" before the two of you collide with a sickening crunch.

Quote
It picks you up in one betaloned tentacle and throws you at Krinex, your fellow adventurer. It probably hurt her as much as it hurt you. Well, we can hope.

Quote
It grabs you in a betaloned tentacle and squeezes you until your eyeballs bulge. Damn your eyes!

Using the Spirit of Crimbo against it seems to work.

Anyone else think that the next clan dungeon will be Uncle Hobo related?

The thought did cross my mind.

The Crimbomination really needs to die. He/She/It's completely saturating the DNA market.

::EDIT::

Broke a mil.  :D

Only ten items here, but then I spent time doing bounties and meatfarming/shoring too. However, I finally got the last trophy I was aiming for this run (and boy did that take a while), so now all I have to do is get another three moxie for level thirty and jump through the gash :D I do hope I can remember how to play at low levels, cause it sure has been a while :p

Oh, and I suppose since Crimbo is over (for real this time) we should be getting together the cash to reflood the sewers again. Personally I've got about 500k saved up now that can go towards it. Oh, and the loot from last time still needs distributing. Mustn't forget that.
