I discovered an interesting use for it during a recent run:

Blue Candle + necronomicon + rupture

Each time I played Necronomicon, I gained strength. Necronomicon returns to your hand when exhausted, so it has unlimited uses (at the cost of 1 HP per use)

Do you know if there's a card or relic that reduces hp losses of 1 to 0?

Life loss, not so sure. Damage, Tungsten Rod?

You could try to synergize with "feed" but that's tough.

Actually it does look like Tungsten also reduces life loss

yeah it reduces any HP loss, not just damage, so this would count

Wow! I have to test this out. Maybe there's something written in the game's code that prevents the possibility of those 4 elements being obtained during the same run.

@Feeb I think I actually had a Feed during that run, but it wasn't easy utilizing it. Had to drag fights for longer, and you don't want to risk extra hp loss.

You can custom settings / endless to get the synergy.

Also- the Pride curse seems it could be a nasty mixer- in custom mode.

Ok so Downfall, is quite amazing ... not only the new character Hermit, but also the Downfall game playing as the enemy, badass so far!

I got my son playing StS now, he's been loving it so far. He likes doing custom runs the most.

FINALLY BEAT A20!!! Ugh!! What a pain!! But I swapped out my opening relic at the start and got 4 added to every attack that requires zero energy and started collecting from there. For anyone that wants to watch it I streamed the whole thing on twitch, first run is a fail, but the second run was a success!!

I never replace initial relic but maybe I should, always saw it as risky for some reason even though starting isn't THAT good, esp for Silent I guess

Silent's one of those classes where the starter relic is honestly not that annoying to lose. I feel like once you're good enough with all the classes, it's probably the same thing. Healing between fights is for noobs, and channeling ONE Lightning? Pfft

Ok so I just started a silent run and I chose to replace starting relic, i got snecko eye which is basically same thing but with Confusion. Uh, ok great.
First fight, not a single 0 energy card, my strikes and defends were all 2/3 energy. well played, game

yeah, snecko eye only really works late game when you've ditched your cheap cards and loaded up on expensive ones, and even then I don't think it's feasible to run on RNG like that

i decided to give it a shot, considering I struggled with that very first fight, getting to Act 2 boss feels like an accomplishment. Had to pause for now though

Part of what makes Snecko good is that it grants you 2 more cards in each turn. Increasing it more is probably a good idea, so that there are more chances to get zero cost cards to play each turn.

Still, it can just straight up kill you with bad RNG.

it doesnt give you extra if it just replaces your initial relic as Silent though

it's lowkey crap but im still gonna try to somehow power through

Silent's initial relic gives you 2 extra cards at the start of combat.
Snecko gives you 2 extra cards at the start of each turn.

Yeah trading the silents starting relic for the one I did just made me unstoppable once I got a bunch of shivs and the one relic that increases strength every 3 attacks. That and I got the relic and potion that revives you if you die. I literally rewatched my run just now. I almost beat it in under 40min too....

Fair point about 2 extra cards each turn not just combat, didnt realize that at first

Snecko is definitely good, especially getting it early so that you can start taking expensive cards right off the bat. Sure, it will sometimes kill you with bad RNG, but you can die to a bad non-Snecko draw too so I don't think that's really a factor.

This was certainly not the case even a month ago! Probably had half or less.

I've been swapping out the starting relic every time, it doesnt always work out great but it does add nice variety and different element to each run

Yeah, boss relic swap is OP. A large number of my high ascension wins started with a boss relic swap. It almost feels cheap to use it, it's such a power boost. Some of the swaps can be really challenging to pull out a win though, like Busted Crown.
