Not sure how tavern works exactly, but I thought I should make a thread (?) on what god to pick for what combo’s and situations, for people to ask and help on.
I have a GhMo going, picked up an early crossbow. Diety suggestions? I was thinking more oka/mak but if someone has a better idea, go ahead.
EDit: floro 3 scroll of acq and i got a great lajatang. What now? Still no god, and im going to work soon so you have time to reply. Thanks
Qaz is a wonderful god for ranged users. Their passive clouds are wonderful for killing dudes that get close, their noise allows you to camp on stairs, and their passive resistance boosts really can be life savers sometimes.
And with high invo their active abilities can just decimate screens. Too many dudes on the screen, use Disaster area. Very powerful dude on screen that has high resist to your damage type, use that earlier skill… forgot its name. Lots of casters or ranged dudes in sight, cast summon elementals to break LOS.
Sounds great and I will do that for a future ranged run. But on the current one I picked up a godly lajatang. So GhMo with polearms.
I’d just pick one of the basics for that. Gozag or Oka probably.
I’d recommend picking the best of the deities you find early (by D:4 or so), should any of them be at all plausible. Of course this is irrelevant if you’ve already reached the Temple unaffiliated.
Never won with Oka. Thanks
For streak / high WR play, the traditional advice is “pick the first god that’s reasonably helpful”. Early-game is the hardest part of the game. Plus, you don’t know where the temple is. The difference between a D:3 god and a D:7 god is pretty significant there. With the buffed faded altars in 0.30, taking a faded altar is often good. (Just watch for gods like Chei, Xom, maybe Qaz that can hurt the early-game).
If you don’t care about the early-game or overall WR, then you don’t need to follow that advice. Also if first gods are in Temple, then it doesn’t apply either. The five gods I like on almost any character are Ash, Gozag, Hep, Nemelex, and Ru. All (except Ru) are strong early-game, and all of them are good late-game too. Okawaru is arguably in the same tier, and definitely was before the various nerfs.
For the GhMo, Oka works well. Makhleb works, but since the healing nerf a while back, isn’t on the same level as above gods.
appreciate it. i did qazlal for shield bc of the two handed weapon, have cleared lair. general and specific qaz tips?
Be weary of the noise they make. I tend to play extra carefully when I’m with Qaz. I go down the stairs, wait, kill what comes. Go down the other two stairs and do the same.
Then I will carefully explore manually while keeping in mind my escape routes.
Their passives are massive, but don’t neglect to train invo for Disaster Area (which rips, especially in V:5). If you have ranged attackers attacking up, or even something like a ghost moth that is kicking your but, disaster area the thing, or summon some Elementals. That faith will be regenerated in no time, and qaz will save your life with their invocable abilities.
Lajatang is a staff I think.
