LOL, I just got an award for dying 50 times to a single Voidimp. Nice dmg bonus.

Exception: when you do the Wall, you're going to lower your stacks by another 100, so you might want to procrastinate on doing other maps to balance things out. It's all about balance, no pun intended.

Also, if you don't have Scientist II yet, you might want to put off starting Maps until you first get to 250 stacks.
Thanks for the advice. Now I know what I'm doing. When I first started this run, I was doing lots of maps to bring the stacks down. Silly me.
