Goo aftergoo! *slurp*

I'm here to let goo know about a challenge run I will be attempting in the following days.

 

Ever wonder what slimy slick shenanigans a goo-man can get to using only a team of three slimes?

 

These ain't no regoolar slimes either. (Or rather, they are.) As I will only be using the regular, blue variant of slime found all over Infant Isle.

The drools and objectives are simple:

1. Complete the Joker games using exclusively "Slime" monsters, this means blue, teardrop shaped slimes. No behemoths, cureslimes, or king slimes either.

2. Only synthesize if the result is Slime, or in the case of J2: Slime, Slime X, and Slime XY, as these are essentially early implementations of the rank up system from J3, and are challenging enough to acquire anyway. This means we need the Phoenix Sceptre as fast as possible in order to get new skills.

3. You may scout other monsters, but may never use them in battle, and may only synthesize to acquire new skills for your slimes.

4. The challenge ends once

Spoiler

Estark is defeated in J1 and Rigor Mortex is defeated in J2

This means completing the final challenge of the game using only 3 slimes.

I'm not doing J3 as I do not own a 3DS, but whatever is the final challenge there would be required for completion.

 

I will be updating this thread with progress any time I get the chance, and I might try recording the major fights.

 

BONUS Challenges:

 

1. Defeat Dr. Snap's first gauntlet using only your 3 slimes.

2. Obtain Slime X or XY as soon as you unlock Dr. Lump.

 

I will be attempting these as well but won't make any promises.

It has begoon

 

I selected mischievous mole and immediately used him to scout the first slime. My mission now is clear, level up as fast as I can and invest into attack boost, hopefully grabbing more slimes along the way.

No screenshot today but I am updating:

 

The grind is obviously real, and I don't always have time. By this point, I have gotten 3 slimes to Lv5, and will be using these 3 as-is unless I hit a wall, or until I reach the Phoenix Sceptre in Palaish.

Let's Goo!

Orc took lots of turns! Taking roughly 6-10 damage per hit. I grabbed the 2 available seeds of skill and buffed up my hitter's attack stat, grabbing me about +1 extra damage per hit.

So how far in are you now?

Just hit a huge wall, Golem is kicking my butt, one shotting my healer. Plan is to grind to like Lv21 or something so I can bolster my stats, supplemented by the skill seeds in Xeroph

 

NOTE! Anyone attempting this challenge needs to remember you are stuck in Xeroph after the Orc fight until you beat Golem.I didn't know this so I am now on extra hard lol

Update, all my boys are at Lv16, decent HP going on, about 60~50hp but MP is pretty limited.

 

Reminder none of these slimes are synth'd yet, that has to wait until Palaish. Got Iron Lances and equipped Sacred Lance, getting my team a very significant power boost.

 

I'm coming for you Golem!!

And Golem is dead! It was a pretty easy once the gooey boys didn't die in one hit.

 

Phoenix Sceptre is coming soon.

WOOOHOOO

So accidentally uploaded the images out of order but this is huge progress.

I grinded like HECK and got all my boys to Lv17~20, with lots of investment into their offensive stats and abilities.

 

MOOSIFER IS NO MORE

he can be a real run stopper, with his powerful Psych Up Boom's, but the consistent damage dealt by my boys made short work of him, I only needed to heal once halfway into the battle.

 

This is usually a sign of things to come, the easier Moosifer is the more confident you can be in the next few segments. Though if I want to accomplish the Bonus challenge, I still have some grinding to do.

 

See you guys soon B)

Update

Currently at Dr Snap's Gauntlet. Most of the fight is a total joke for the stupidly overleveled might of my groovy great gooligans, however the fourth stage is a decently challenging wall. I'm pretty confident grinding more isn't necessary per se, However due to the format it will be a bit hard being able to arrive to fight 4 without being super banged up.

 

See you guys soon! Dr Snap can eat my shorts

So here's a lightning round.

 

Here's Dr Snap's 4th gauntlet team:

Here's the victory screen:

Screenshot_20201203-180102.thumb.png.e9d4aa19c486b99c81bbab0753381a33.png

 

Here's his final dialogue IF you beat him:

Screenshot_20201203-180117.thumb.png.c88bd67349455b0dd3aae751bf011402.pngScreenshot_20201203-180126.thumb.png.fc5afa7219c38e9d4a8304040f58ebf0.pngScreenshot_20201203-180137.thumb.png.80461cfeeb0599a4b6bd060d32536235.png

After that he says the same as he would if you had lost.

 

Next target? Demon at Arms or Great Dragon, don't remember which was next off the top of my head Haha.

Demon-at-arms is Fert Isle, so I believe you are up against Great Dragon next!

I did Fert Isle first, and apperantly that was Great Dragon.

 

As for proof:Screenshot_20201203-194632.thumb.png.91cdff08f669ae87f79ca47559f4ced1.png

He wasn't much of a threat, though with such powerful babies it's not surprising anymore.

 

I wonder if Dr Spoiler will be my next roadblock, for now, Demon-at-Arms and Belial are the next targets.

So, fun fact; the shrine bosses aren't non-linear even though the shrines are. You'll always fight Great Dragon and then Demon-at-arms.

(I'm prone to creating very vivid false memories, but I was pretty sure about fighting Demon-at-arms on Fert Isle, so I looked it up).

That's fascinating, learning weird stuff about this game every time I get back into it haha

I'm still mad at the guy who lets you ring the bell. If you collect enough darkonium too soon, he tells you that the bell isn't ready, but he absolutely guarantees that you'll be in the tournament.

Complete the rest of the story events and come back, and he tells you that you need to hurry if you want to be in the tournament. I wanted to sic my monsters on him!

Another lightning round, Ace of Spades victory screen didn't want to upload so just take my word for it.

Nice! Grats on making so far, and faster than I would probably do a normal run on this game

So I did all the stuff for Solitaire's Challenge, including Rank X Arena but I forgot to get a screenshot of the actual victory screen, might redo the fight for screenies if y'all want it. Anyway here's the good stuff:

Congratulations. What's left? I see you beat Solitaire and X Class. Did you beat Dr. Snapped? (Its been a long time since I played)

Maybe I should finish up my DWM solo quest. Apparently I quit at the TERRY? + Durran fight.
