So after a few people were asking me to show them how I manage to do 2 day hardcore standard runs, I happened to record one of my runs. I have quite a lot of items of the month, so this run probably can't be replicated too well unless you at least have the deck, chateau and source terminal. This was before the genie came out, so obviously that could partially compensate if you have that. I also screwed up near the end and accidentally let the maximizer buy a Sneaky Pete's breath spray with one of my fat loot tokens, but still ended up making it in two days without much issue. Re: 2 Day Hardcore Standard Run. Thanks for posting that!

Q: How is 'ascension' spelled? A: Just like that. Q: What does 'ascension' mean? A: It means that after you defeat the Naughty Sorceress, your character will have the opportunity to 'ascend' to the afterlife, start over as a level 1 player.

It forces you to do without the 20 pulls a day that can super-power your character, and there's no "ronin" period after which you get all your regular items. You can't buy from the mall, either, and you can't use any Items of the Month you buy in-run. However, you can still build up skills wonderfully, and you get slightly nicer prizes for winning.
