Oh, wow. The new Monk IS actually good again.

I beat Dragon Isles first try. I used Earthmother for Piety (and 6 vine forms) to fuel the resistances pact from Pactmaker.

Nice! It's still probably better to nab that pact with taurog, because his damage is a huge help!

I think the JJ gnomes are getting a nerf. I thought The Avatar was supposed to be hard! I could have gotten feeling parched if I'd found a GETINDARE glyph. Also, I got a terrible mix of monsters. Tons of succubi, doom armors, and thralls.

Namtar Too!

Has anyone seen the new tilesets for Shifting Passages and Havendale Bridge? Or the chokebox/grimms grotto and spike trouble? THEY ARE AWESOME! I would like to recommend a unique tileset for Creeplight Monastary too.

I've just unlocked the half-dragon after defeating the matron with an orc monk, and I used only 1 death protection from Taurog! The new monks are awesome.

If a monster drops an item when killed via death gaze, the item will sometimes spawn on top of the wall that is created. You can click on the item to retrieve it, and will end up standing on top of the wall.

And I just beat Naga City with an Orc Monk! Based on how much piety I had left, I probably could have gotten through at least 5 more lairs of death protection, if not 10.

I stumbled on a Vampiric Blade in a shop, which quite wonderfully with my 75% physical resist (Taurog + Enlightenment)

Naga City with a monk? Good idea. I will try it.

You mean the strategy for the Monk?

It's really as simple as getting to 75% physical resist (Through Taurog, GG, Dracul, and/or Tower Shield) and regen fight the bosses. Yes, even Bleaty!
