Wait, we're not going for consistent suicidal overconfidence? :O
Was that the goal?

I just built a kid who uses buildings as legos and kinda of worked up from there.

I was going on "big as possible and how fast can I go". I sort of transitioned into trying to be Getter Robo recently, but...

I don't think "survival instincts" were anywhere in this composition.
Still short tempered.

I made an obsessive Oujou with suicidal overconfidence so RD is at least correct about 1 of us ;)

Ooooh, a possible harem recruit.

You know what we haven't really had yet in the main story line? A harem fight, lots of girls lolis (knowing Osl) fighting us. Instead we got some leetspeaking duplicator as a substitute :(
Would you die if you jumped from my perceived ego to your IQ? - Is 15secs of confirmation bias a goal post worth arguing for? - Ever asked a "victim" what they did to deserve it? - Are the words teen, SJW, & liberal synonyms? - "Only Sith deals in absolutes" contains a misspelled word.

As a matter of fact the duplicating leetspeaker is a girl. :p

Before Hugo/Katherine/Amaterasu fought the triplet mercenaries.

Hired by the purple maid:

Then there were the unknown warriors supporting the duplicating leetpseaker which the party fought by the dozens although Mao crushed most of them alone.

And here are some of the NPCs I've drafted years ago for this campaign but you keep missing.

Might be worth mentioning that there's a lot of melee in the party at the moment. If you want to melee, be sure to keep some range options because things tend to get heated up quickly. There is also never enough battlefield control.
Having at least one defensive trick or two to mitigate the damage you receive may be essential. There is a lot of burst going around.

My imprinted Super Robot is supposed to pretty much embody defense. I dunno what to tell ya about not about being melee.

Prepare to see it go boom in one round, two if you're lucky. :D

No, that just seems to be how long mecha survive here.

Meh Anomander's specialized in tanking and I believe they never went down, although that may also be because he's been conveniently forgetting every critical since the campaign's start.

Hugo's mecha pretty undefeated too although that would be because he's smart enough to let others tank for him.

How does one conventiently forget crits? And I was mostly talking about defending for my character, not itself lol.

Eh, tempted to be variant Swordsage... So much decision.

Anomander recently revealed that he "didn't know" mechas were vulnerable to criticals despite, during the years this campaign lasted, criticals happening basically every battle and Raineh Daze's mecha going down to them in the very first battle.

If you're talking about arcane swordsage, it's not allowed. If it's the unarmed swordsage, ok.

Lol, my maneuver progression is weird. I'll stick with Moon Vanguard, though it was a different swordsage variant I was speaking of.

Mao has a class ability that makes her immune to critical hits.

Okay mostly done with maneuvers, but can use opinions. I need one Martial Machine strike/boost/counter of 4th level or lower, and two strike/boost/counter/stance of 5th and lower. Also need an Internet Explorer manuever of 5th level or lower.

Would love to help but it really depends on the rest of the build. What are you trying to do? Synergy and such.
If you send me what you've got so far I'll have an idea of what you need.


Wondering now if the stuff that was on the market last time still is around and available for purchase.

What was on the market from before?
Would you die if you jumped from my perceived ego to your IQ? - Is 15secs of confirmation bias a goal post worth arguing for? - Ever asked a "victim" what they did to deserve it? - Are the words teen, SJW, & liberal synonyms? - "Only Sith deals in absolutes" contains a misspelled word.

Oh yeah, I think I made a point about forcing dropped loot.

Fun fact, the Tagvalve/GurBaza when resized to Colossal deals 16d8 damage. But if you really want something abusively powerful pick up the Vita and use the Maug Weapon Graft to turn it into a Natural Weapon allowing you to use a Super Robot Upgrade to add Area to it. For 32k you get an effective +4 Power Concussive Speed MightyCleaving/Seeking weapon that applies a Save-less semi-permanent +20% damage debuff effect on pretty much all of your opponents in a single Attack Action. It also doubles as a Ranged Weapon without having to grab and use the "Tank-Mode" Upgrade.

The colossal bazooka would have the usual limitation of being a non-mecha weapon handled by a mecha, which is that its range would still be on normal scale (which would STILL be remarkable).
You guys also got the Vol Scale melee weapon that had a 3d6 base weapon damage, which would get pretty darn high at colossal.


The Vita + Maug Weapon Graft + Super Robot Upgrade wouldn't work without using a particular build since super robot upgrades to modify a weapon apply only to built-in weapons, which are a very specific kind of mecha weapons.  There was the option to make a built-in version of the generic weapons found at the market though, but the Vita wouldn't qualify.
But yeah. The Vita's debuff is a huge advantage.
