Where did I ever say not using pact?? They really did nerf it then, if so, Usually I only combo nightmare with wands for killing bosses or killing other ranged attackers after pact. I never anywhere said anything about not taking or using pact. I simply said that using it 4+ floors isn't very "mage-like", and it's definitely not that safe on PD to be doing so. It should be used sparingly at that point. Now if you wanna abuse bugs and steal a ton of crap from brax and whatnot, that changes things. You can do the reload pet summon thing and have an army of robots if you really want to abuse bugs as well.
