EDIT: I decided to pretend to be Lorrelian and be useful, so I'm going to take all of the advice that crops up in this thread and put it here in the OP. (More later as I have time to update) --- Original Post: Background: I'm enjoying a slow, leisurely run with: Vampirism Shield Bearer Master of Arms Magical Law Piracy Battle Geology Warlockery And I noticed that, around floor 6, I started doing an awful lot of archery. Yeah, Archery. With no Craft skills to give me any particular use for ingots, I was converting them all into arrows. With my assortment of item and Krong-based damage bonuses, my arrows were consistently doing about 19-26 damage per hit -- enough that 5 of them would kill off a single mob. Not great odds, but then, I had a lot of arrows -- and I was saving all of the good ones (6-star+) in my Pocket Dimension and just chewing through the plain-ass Copper, Brass, Iron, and Steel bolts (which I still had a total of 150+ of.) When I came across a set of Tinkerer's Goggles, it made the whole thing just slightly more efficient (7 arrows instead of 6), which was nice, but unnecessary. It got me thinking -- there's no particular reason why any character couldn't do this (short of not finding a Tinkerer's Kit.) It also got me thinking -- what other kinds of these zero-investment tactics are there in the game that any character should be able to take advantage of? Let's make a list.
