Patches can screw you over, but in the long run over many games Patches is such a massive benefit that he's well worth the hassle. I've been screwed by him quite similarly to your screenshot there on multiple occasions before, but his advantages are often game-winning.

Yup, Patches the teddy bear is one of those magical amazing items that you can both love and loath the same time.

Funny thing, Patches seems to love me. I only got screwed over once, but I still scraped by...

I've been teleported to inescapable areas at least half a dozen times (though I have a bad habit of using him on dungeons prone to this kind of thing). Forgetting to convert him before the boss battle and then getting mana burned is pretty darn nasty too.

Oh... Mid-boss level up destruction. Man, patches was in a BAD mood.

Isn't that technically impossible, since poison is cured by leveling up and that's the only time patches triggers his effects?

I was commenting how patches might be good with a crusader, and was saying if you got poison immunity instead of mana immunity it could be devastating.

Depends on whether Patches is in a balanced mood or not. Poison Immunity would be awesome if he just tries to poison you 9 times.

It's not the really big sword the monsters need to worry about... it's that teddy bear...
