New Content - Implemented 2022 New Year Changes


  • Clovers: The hermit now offers 11-leaf clovers which grant an intrinsic effect Lucky! on use. 11-leaf clovers combine the effects of ten-leaf clovers and semi-rare adventures into what are termed Lucky adventures. Some clover/semi-rare adventures are no longer available and their items may be available elsewhere (example: miniature boiler drops from monstrous boiler).
    • The hermit no longer trades ten-leaf clovers.
    • Pill Keeper sunday pill now grants Lucky!
    • Optimal dog now grants Lucky!
    • Lucky Lindy is now size 6 good quality booze and grants Lucky!
    • Fortune cookie grants a ten-leaf clover upon eating.
    • Lucky Pills should still grant a ten-leaf clover upon chewing.
    • Ten-leaf clover recipes are intended to remain the same.
    • Elf farm raffle tickets no longer consume clovers, they are purely random now.

  • Semi-rares: There is no more semi-rare counter. Some semi-rare adventures can be encountered with Lucky! such as the Knob Goblin Embezzler.
  • Astral Energy Drinks: Spleen items that grant the same Lucky! intrinsic effect as clovers, 5 toxicity. (Should be a new item ID, but not sure what it is yet)
  • Transcendental Olfaction: Now costs 0 mp (down from 40 mp), limit 3 uses per day, effect lasts across rollover (thanks for the updated info!) or until used on a new target.
  • Softcore Pulls: Can now only pull one of each item per day (total daily limits unchanged from 20).
  • Marmot Moon Sign: Now +1 prismatic resistance (previously randomly dropped a clover).

One more trivial update:
December 31, 2021 - Oh also Cannonfire40 wants me to announce that the Demon Name adventures in the Spooky Forest and Haunted Bathroom are now unavailable until after whatever thing happens in there that people care about.

  • Transcendental Olfaction: Now costs 0 mp (down from 40 mp), limit 3 uses per day, effect lasts all day (maybe across rollover?) until used on a new target.
I believe this does in fact last across rollover. My session logs from meatfarming today don't contain any casts of olfaction (controlled via autoattack macro), yet my number of garbage tourist encounters are roughly the same as usual (maybe 1-2% lower ratio than usual, but that's probably within margin of error).

ten-leaf clovers and disassembled clovers are still "usable" to create each other.
We no longer need "clover protection", exactly.:
-> I went to the castle basement, ignored the warning, and did not get a clover adventure.

Using an 11-leaf clover gives you an intrinsic - Lucky!
-> I went to the castle basement, (ignored the clover warning), and got what used to be a the clover adventure.
"You suddenly feel less lucky." It did not say "you lose an intrinsic" or anything, but it did disappear from the charpane.

So, we presumably still need "lucky" protection.
encounters.txt contains both SEMIRARE and CLOVER

Considering that the Haunted Boiler Room used to have Bram the Stoker as a SEMIRARE encounter, giving the monstrous boiler a miniature boiler (with lucky?) seems unfortunate.

I just tested: got Lucky! and went to the boiler room and got Bram the Stoker.

We need LUCKY encounters in encounters.txt and "lucky protection".
Well, a fair amount of spading needed here.

I had On the Trail (effect 311) yesterday.
Today, it is not on my charpane.

I looked at the previously reported effect for the new On the Trail:

2694    On the Trail    snout.gif    519edacbd99d93658cc2ef05bd6baefb    neutral    none
# Effect On the Trail

Be vewwy, vewwy quiet. You're hunting wabbits. And by "wabbit" I mean "garbage tourist."

And that is, in fact, what my "olfactedMonster" property says.

I went to the Icy Peak.
I encountered a Knott Yeti.
Skill dropdown says:

<option value="19" picurl="snout" >Transcendent Olfaction (3 uses left today)</option>

I used the skill and got:

You take a deep breath, allowing your opponent's scent to fill your entire being.
On the Trail
You acquire an intrinsic: On the Trail

And now it is in my charpane.
I went and olfacted a garbage tourist. decorated charpane looks like this:

On the Trail (garbage tourist, ∞)

> ash have_effect( $effect[ On the Trail ] )

Multiple matches for "On the Trail"; using "[2694]On the Trail". (char 23 to char 36) Clarify by using one of:
$effect[[331]On the Trail]
$effect[[2694]On the Trail]
Returned: 2147483647

> ash have_effect( $effect[ [331]On the Trail ])

Returned: 0

> ash have_effect( $effect[ [2694]On the Trail ])

Returned: 2147483647

I'll submit a PR with the bare minimum for this:

- (Add 11-leaf clover item)
- add Lucky! intrinsic
- add (new) On the Trail intrinsic
- comment out the old On the Trail effect, so ASH can use $effect[ On the Trail ] without ambiguity
- change EffectPool.ON_THE_TRAIL to have the new effect ID

I consider it to be a KoL bug to not display the On the Trail intrinsic in the charpane if you had the old status effect before rollover. But I cannot fix that. Once you cast it again, things should work as expected.


Staff member
Note that tracking daily usage is still needed - and places that check if ON_THE_TRAIL is active


Staff member
Damn it. I just made changes and pushed them not from a branch - and I can't make a pull request. Does this mean that I have force pushed them without review? I am sorry!


Apparently, not all is yet set up for the new Lucky system. According to the forums, they're going to start working on things like the pillkeeper on Monday.


Staff member
Ha ha. The CharPaneDecoratorTest is specifically testing how an olfacted monster shows up.
On The Trail is now an intrinsic.
PR, if committed will disable them.

The test and expected HTML differ because one allows olfaction to be uneffected.
I have modified the tests and expected results to put On the Trail into the Intrinsics section and decorate it in the expected way for an intrinsic.
Trying it out now.


31337 scrolls don't drop a hermit script anymore on first use and they as expected still give ten-leaf clovers on subsequent uses.


Staff member
I have modified the tests and expected results to put On the Trail into the Intrinsics section and decorate it in the expected way for an intrinsic.
Trying it out now.
No joy. Not understanding why.

Did submit a pull request to fix how we decorate intrinsics; we previously put a span around the parenthesized duration of any type of an effect, but for intrinsics, short-circuited before putting in the /span to close it.


Staff member
The test and expected HTML differ because one allows olfaction to be uneffected.
More than that: to be actually correct, On the Trail needed to be in the Intrinsics section, not the Effects section.
So far, no joy in correcting the HTML.


Staff member
OK, my open pull request fixes the CharPaneDecorator test.
Turns out that even though there were intrinsics in the input data, it didn't actually test decorating intrinsics in the charpane.


Staff member
I have another PR in to remove the concept of clover protection - and to recognize that the hermit has 11-leaf clovers, not ten-leaf clovers.


Staff member
Huh. I see that gausie has a draft PR which has all the stuff I did for clovers - and also a whole mess of stuff to deal with semirares, fortune cookies, ENCOUNTER and SEMIRARE encounter types becoming LUCKY encounters (module ongoing spading.)

My PR is a strict subset of his - and removes clover warnings, fixes the hermit (and breakfast), clover protection, and so on.
Which is all stuff that is useful right now, without spading.

Rinn approved my PR late last night. I have since added a few tweaks - including responding to his comment that the Lemon Party Slots are confirmed to require Lucky! rather than a clover.

I'm going to use my "special administrator powers" to merge in my PR.

Sorry, gausie; you will now have a merge to do. The good news is that probably a dozen files will no longer need to be part of your PR.
