Hey, are there any high level pro hackers out there with advice on the ideal proc power/offence splits? Is 75 proc power enough? just use power ups to restore it and go for offence items? How about at 35~. Theres no second hacker store in episode 2 that sells equips right?

Beast0r High-Speed Cables

* Defense +15

* Offense +15

* Luck +10

nVulva TestES 6000RX

* Max Processing Power +75

* Offense +6

75 PP should be enough, and if you max the rest out with Cables then you’ll be basically unstoppable.

The Hacker book and the Finger Implant should be enough.

Beast0r Cables are the most useless item in A&A. By the time you make enough money to buy them, you should already have 3 50TB HDDs and 4 Polka Dot Boxes for rollover.

That said, I have 215 Processing Power when my pwning equipment is on. That’s my base power, the nVulva TestES 6000RX (+75), the PLUM COMPUTERS KEYNOTE PODCAST.lstn file (+30) and the Prosthetic Finger Implant (+100). I never have to use any Ginseng, so that’s more than sufficient.

Unless I’m mistaken, luck also affects your combat abilities slightly.

I run 4 beastors and the finger implant (On my hacker alt), and only have a little over 100 proc, which is more than enough to run Geronimo (At my level anyway, which is 30-ish). Of course I have 99 attack and on shot everything ever, so that might have something to do with it.

Look at you, Hacker. A pathetic creature of meat and bone.

I only have the finger implant and I rarely have to use drugs anymore. I have 4 sets of Beastor and the book that gives 8 atk/8 def/8 luck. Just pump your attack – you don’t even need much ego.

For Endgame he is right. I run at 180 Ego & 175 PP, one-shotting 5/6 threads in almost any forum.

Maybe you could switch the book for the Hacker one before Endgame, but I personally never had to take a drink. I rely mostly on .Moar files and the finger, though. The 8/8/8 book is too good to pbum up.

What the heck else am I supposed to spend all this Flezz on? “Not having to adjust your hardware for rollover” is a minor benefit, but a benefit nonetheless; and after you buy Beast0r Cables, the finger implant, and the best hacker book, you have essentially nothing else useful to spend flezz on. So rather than “let the flezz pile up earlier” why not get the last useful thing, and let the flezz start piling up a little bit later.

Personally, I don’t devote any hardware spots to proc power. I use the finger implant, the hacker book, and I’ve been fiddling around with my .moars to see what works best, some of which give proc. power.

For the record, my stats are Offense 104 Defense 81 Luck 57, and I have 160 Proc Power. Nothing really gives me trouble

I have 4 Beast0r cables the finger implant and the Hacker book. I also have the other +8+8+8 book but I only use it when I don’t need the extra PP. I have a wetgear in case I find I need even more PP but so far I haven’t had to use it.

And for the record my offense is at 87, defense at 78, and luck is at least 54 (it changes rollover in which case I up my luck more). I’m only at level 28. I can pwn threads in 1 or 2 shots.

The +8’s book is better all around, but I’m just use the hacker book for PP. I could just as easily use consumables. But if I have the money why not use it?

Both are items from Episode 2.

One is a special gift from an STalk contact, the other one is bought from a new shop.

Note: if you got Ep.2, you should have the book by your level.

I was actually an idiot and sold the +8 book when I got it, since I didn’t have the bookstore open yet so I couldn’t equip it. Ohwell, when episode 3 rolls out I should be able to get something better with the millions of flezz I will get in the meantime.

My setup involves having only the Finger Implant. Why, you ask? 100 PP is just enough to lay waste to a few threads at lower levels, while taking out the entire forum without items at higher levels. Also, 100 PP is just enough to get filled up by either the +90 PP item, or the more expensive +100 PP +45 Ego Powerthirst. At lower levels, Powerthirst can save you from a hit you don’t want to take, if you can afford it.

1 Book, 1 Surgical Procedure.

It probably affects the stability of your attack damage, like in most rpg’s. It’s your secondary attribute as a hacker and that’s how it usually works – keeps your attack range smaller and at the upper end.

I seriously think 450 PP is overkill, like 2-3 times what is really needed. You should try to run Beastors…+30 Offense really shows.
