I'm having troubles completing some of these puzzles. I've done the first and third, but the others are difficult. Any tips? Thanks. Great game by the way!

I presume we're talking about "Starter Pack" and not "Soko Trolls"

Here are hints and (hidden) solutions for levels 2, 4, and 5 (highlight the text to see it)

Level 2
Hint: Alternate your attacks between the Warlock and Vampire
Solution: Attack the Vampire, attack the Warlock, use your potion, kill the vampire, kill the warlock, kill the meat man, kill the zombie, victory

Level 4
Hint: You've got plenty of PISORF power, but very limited health; figure out who you will need to attack and who you can be dealt with only by blasting them into walls.
Solution: PISORF the goat, attack the goat, grab WEYTWUT, swap places with the zombie, convert WEYTWUT, PISORF the goat twice to kill it, PISORF the second goat twice to kill it, PISORF and attack each goblin once, now kill the level 2 goblin with melee attacks, victory

Level 5
Hint: Petrify weaker enemies, fight stronger enemies
Solution: Petrify the goo blob, kill the gorgon, petrify the the goo blob, kill the gorgon, petrify the zombie, convert IMAWAL, kill the meat man, kill the dragon, victory

Hey,

I'm also having difficulties with the Explorer's Guild Starter Pack. I already tried alternating between the vampire and warlock, killing both of after the health potion. But with the remaining HP (3) I get killed by the Meat Man. Were there changes to those monsters that would make this challenge impossible to overcome?

Could it be that both, enemy matching and Experience are bugged due to recent changes to character classes / monsters?

Yes, the bonus experience change has messed with those puzzles. They might still be doable in some cases, but they're not "built" for the current game environment.

Be aware that we're not focusing on puzzles yet. Challenge dungeons first.

This does not work. I have tried every combination in this puzzle. I attack the vampire, attack the warlock, use the potion, kill the vampire, kill the warlock, attack the meat man twice but the third time he kills me. Same thing happens when I try killing the zombie instead. This puzzle is literally IMPOSSIBLE to beat.

Yes it is; the last update changed the XP gain formula and made the puzzle unwinnable because you don't level up.
