Techniques Testing

I'm starting this page to keep track of stuff that requires testing against every technique in the game. Individual pages tend to get out of date when new techniques are added, so I'm making one simple list.

Things to test:

  1. Sciency techniques for the Red Lensed Goggles - mark Y if you gain Red Lenses while using this technique in combat
  2. Underwater - Mark Y if this technique is affected by being underwater (whether as an improvement or detriment) and N if it is not affected
  3. Blood of the Ancients bonus - mark Y if it affected by the Blood of the Ancients effect (assuming just etheric techniques)
  4. Wolfskin belt - mark Y if you gain extra techniques while using the wolfskin belt
  5. Debuff effects - Some techniques can give your opponent an effect when you use it against them. This is normally invisible to the player, but you can see it when it is used against you in PvP. (if checking this, please try note if you survive more than one round… in case it gives 1 turn of an effect, which is immediately lost after ending the fight. I write "<1" if it's been testing and then immediately lose.)
  6. Stainless Skulls - use the GoogleDrive spreadsheet instead
