|-
| <div id="mp-tfa" style="padding:2px 5px"> <div id="mp-dyk">One huge advantage of being evil is dealing more damage in EVERY fight (with the exception of bosses and the arena). That’s up to 50% more damage per hit for purest evil.
+
| <div id="mp-tfa" style="padding:2px 5px"> <div id="mp-dyk">When is the best time to use voice commands?
  
That means faster kills, which means faster gathering of xp, faster levelling up, faster amassing of gold and loot, faster completion of quests and consequently faster completion of your temple.  
+
Each voice command is different, some are best used during monster fights, some are best used between them while questing or searching for the right path. A few to use during fights are:
  
Healing your hero without using encourage is no problem at all. The “heal” voice command is very effective, and no more expensive in godpower. Just be sure to use it in between fights with monsters, and not while searching for the right path or returning to town. It's not like digging, in that you'll succeed soon enough if you just rapidly repeat the command.
+
* smite, hit, attack
 +
* heal, restore, rest,
 +
* pray, offer, sacrifice, love
 +
* cancel quest, abandon quest
  
But as with all voice commands, you should still allow a short break after a success. You’ll probably use most of those punishments for zapping monsters, but causing damage to your hero also has more uses than you might have thought. For example, after a quest it is best for your hero’s health to be at red level (about 1 third of his max health or less) so that he heals himself as normal and then goes on to skip the phase where he wastes money in the tavern. So punishment can be used to knock his health down to red level if necessary.
+
In between fights, all of the above (other than the attack VCs) are useful. Others to be used while not fighting are:
 +
 
 +
* quest
 +
* learn
 +
* dig, gold, treasure
 +
 
 +
The difference between a voice command and action (Encourage/Punish) is that actions are more expensive (25% gp) but have a 75% chance of working, while a voice command is cheaper (5% gp ) and has 20% chance of working. Sometimes you can use 4-8 voice commands before one works. If you are looking to heal yourself during a fight or to kill a monster, I suggest using an action. Healing using VCs is best done between monster fights.
 +
 
 +
Final verdict: voice commands are cheaper, but you run the risk of gaining nothing. Use them wisely and you will be ok. Action as a last resort unless you are aiming for alignment.

Voice Commands and When to Use Them

Did You Check Under the Bed? #3

Voice Commands and When to Use Them

When is the best time to use voice commands?

Each voice command is different, some are best used during monster fights, some are best used between them while questing or searching for the right path. A few to use during fights are:

  • smite, hit, attack
  • heal, restore, rest,
  • pray, offer, sacrifice, love
  • cancel quest, abandon quest

In between fights, all of the above (other than the attack VCs) are useful. Others to be used while not fighting are:

  • quest
  • learn
  • dig, gold, treasure

The difference between a voice command and action (Encourage/Punish) is that actions are more expensive (25% gp) but have a 75% chance of working, while a voice command is cheaper (5% gp ) and has 20% chance of working. Sometimes you can use 4-8 voice commands before one works. If you are looking to heal yourself during a fight or to kill a monster, I suggest using an action. Healing using VCs is best done between monster fights.

Final verdict: voice commands are cheaper, but you run the risk of gaining nothing. Use them wisely and you will be ok. Action as a last resort unless you are aiming for alignment.

Dear Dr. Frank,

I’m going crazy here! My hero just doesn't listen! I've tried just about everything under the blood-red moon. Half of my charges have been spent on voice commands and punishment, and what do I get? A smart talking hero! Help! I’m desperate. At this point I might even have to... (gasp) Encourage!
