How do you get more than ~200 HP? I am quaffing all of the HP potions I come across and leviling up. How do I get the 500+ HP that people ascend with? Also, how much HP do most people need to feel comfortable with (post-castle)? Catullus (talk) 03:10, 4 February 2016 (UTC)

Dancing with foocubi is one way. You can't exceed level 30, but you still get the hit points.--Ray Chason (talk) 04:57, 4 February 2016 (UTC)
The most common ways that people get to high HP totals (400 to 500 or so) are nurse dancing, and using alchemy for blessed potions of full healing. I think most overprepared games use at least one of those methods, and maybe both. (I'm personally comfortable with only about 200 HP though if I have some reliable means of healing and an amulet of life saving in case of mistakes.) Ais523 (talk)
