Seeing as EarthMother was the last god I unlocked, I have no idea what boon you took away from her, but Taurog, you took away his cliffstompers :( I'd hope you would of combined his resistance items into one, oh well. I'm still looking for pactmaker to see what changes have been made. :)

They reversed the pacts, -3 piety and +1 max hp when you kil a monster.

Man, I thought the monster den would be an extra monster class......

Oof! As someone who barely finds the gods useful to begin with, what I didn't want to see was them all getting weaker. Differences I noticed:

Glowing Guardian: Lost Santify Strike (no big deal)
Binlor: Lost Wall Wipe (useless boon anyway)
Dracul: Lost Blood Power (devastating change)
Taurog: Lost Cliffstompers, but all gear now only costs -1 mana (not sure about this one)

EDIT: Blood Hunger also costs 10 instead 20 now, but a resistance-reducing boon from a god that grants resistance is going to be marginal at any cost.

MORE EDIT:
Tikki Tooki: The two potion boons were combined into one, and you get both a reflex and a dodge potion for the cost of a single health potion.

Mystera: Lost the glyph magnet boon

Pactmaker might actually be useful now

I like the new pactmaker more, I just wonder what would happen if I got below 0 piety without worshiping any god.

Taurog is much better now. I don't need to have 5 items clogging up my inventory to get death protection.

I miss Glyph Magnet. :oops:

A Paladin with a piety farm deity (Mystera + BLUDTOPOWA works great here) and the Body Pact can easily max out his phys resist, possibly his mag resist, too. I'm not sure if Body Pact is working properly; it continues to activate even if you keep hitting the same monster over and over, and doesn't always seem to activate when you take damage from a new monster (although I might just have been running low on piety constantly).

This isn't new, but as far as I can tell, Paladins don't get any Monotheism benefits whilst following Jehora - none of his penalties reduce piety, so they take full effect. IMO Paladins should be immune to his random punishments from the start. That still wouldn't make him a worthwhile deity from them in most instances, of course.

I haven't found any new subdungeons yet, although I did get a dungeon (Venture Cave) that didn't seem to have any subdungeon, which I suppose is either a bug or a super secret puzzle subdungeon that is too obtuse for me to figure out how to enter at the moment.

I've noticed that several maps now randomly have no subdungeon at all, which I am hoping is a bug because I really don't like that.

I hope they fix no subdungeon glitch.
Also I find Jehora a pretty nice deity. He gets alot of easy piety, and I get petition as soon as I can from him, then When I save up enough I can get chaos avatar getting rid of all the corrosion and what not, and the benefits, and then rack up more easy piety. (: In case I have alot of excess potions i do not need.
