It just depends on your class, but I personally use Machine-Rug for my magic/melee hybrid.
I've never had any problem with parasite, and found that I could nearly beat him despite being a melee with nearly no ranged or magic boosts forced to use magic/ranged. Mr. 58 however, I have found to be much more difficult, as he has a lot of attacks that actually pose a threat, like the laser-beam that can nearly One-shot a player in nearly-full machine rug with max hp.
Yeah just get black from lost.
Yeah probably best to get rid of it. The weapon is really just a huge cash suck anyways
I like magic-melees like BOTT, aswell as transportation hybrids like Tri-Blade.
A melee run can be very hard-which makes it perfect for a second run.
Hol up, you don't have Mushroom Parasol?
Kinda jealous, I've spent a little while trying to find the Nightmare myself lol
Machine Rug is good, but It's far from perfect. Can't really say for sure.
Nobody has gotten fish first, out of 20 different people.
Yes, I've heard of this before, in some servers it simply doesn't work. I think one player I met called it "Red fog".
I've heard of people who got it in roughly 10 days, but I tried and didn't get it after quite a while, and then decided I valued my sanity.
Pirate Hook is best misc
Blade of Throne is also useful for magic, and good for cheesing a lot of fights as it's magic mode blasts go through walls.
Mhm. I think the best way to define it is through achievements and gear though. Once a player has gotten non-mineral based armor, they've reached mid-game, and End-game should be marked upon either defeating the Otherworld Tower or Circus, ( Tower is likely the best option as it harder to carry and requires just as good loot,)
Blue Shirt and Shorts, with red or blue skin and Blue-man Chieftain mask can also look good,
Or you could switch to melee. Much less expensive and just as effective.
Probably Flying Man, though as far as itempedia items go defiantly Rusty Trophy/Falling Light. That trophy has given far more trouble to players than any of these.
It's rather silly to try to pick out which one is better, they are both designed to be the same weapon but for two separate play-styles.
You can stop them from despawning by doing constant damage.
