Ouch man...

@dislekcia: Slime pits is waaaaaaay to tough! It was the 3rd hardest dungeon for me including Vicious! 1. Halls of steal Vicious 2. Naga City 3. This with a monk!

I don't think that it is the dungeon (even though I'vr only beaten it twice) it's the monk! Especially with the new tri-sword the monks need Taurog even more, but with no way to beat the goo blobs physical using Taurog, this makes the quest nigh impossible, and that's not including the poison, corrosion, and other awful effects.

This took me more tries than the avatar and that was before the tri-sword nerf.

I finally beat Dragon Isle again! Might have taken me a few less tries if I hadn't I died to the mouse up bug on a fairly solid run.

I went Orc Berserker with:

Sensation Stone w/ +50% seal
Smuggler's Den
+10 piety
Combat Glyph (I wanted to get +30% damage or First Strike, but I got something else and converted it)
+50 Gold, Elite Items
Shield
Reflex, Quickness, Whupaz

Worshipped Taurog then Earthmother. Found a Viper's Ward in the store to help with the poison dragons in the sub-dungeon.

Good job!

Whupaz is ultra helpful for the hp, in fact, I beat it without regen fighting.

Well, I beat the Dragon Isles on my first try and didn't even find it too difficult.

I got myself an Orc Berserker with

Sensation Stone + Conversion Seal
Smuggler's Den
Scout: Altar
Mana -> HP
+35 Gold (edit: I has no +50 gold yet)
Shield
Shop Scroll

I messed up at the end and forgot to buy a health potion from a store, which would have allowed me one more hit on the boss.
I had to resort on desecrating Tikki Tooki's altar to get me enough piety for the 4th death protection from Taurog.

Hmm, I was worried to go full Taurog since I felt like I needed the mana potions to squeeze through a couple fights. What did you use your gold on since your inventory was full of Taurog items? I wouldn't have had room for all of them.

I don't think I bought anything except for that one health potion that was too late and didn't really do anything.
I converted all my mana potions.
I used my first health potion to get past the last dragon guarding the boss.

I beat dragon isles with a nerfed tri-sword. Halfing Berserker makes it pretty easy. I still had like 3 health potions left when I finished.

Finally won the Shifting Passages boss (Elf Bloodmage + Fire heart) but got too many high-level changelings and couldn't clear the whole dungeon before running out of mana. It was pretty close though, I'll have to try again tonight.

Getting a level 9 Changeling basically forces you to quit. Try an elf paladin, use whupaz then schaudenfraud then health potions, to save as many mana potions as possible for those infernal changelings.

Well, like I said before, I'd first need to get past Complicated Tasks pt 5 to get Whupaz :)
