Vicious unlock quest are a good idea. But the quests are only accessible after Horratio goes down. Something like beating the previous level with 4 characters (and remove Vicious HoS, and move vamp quest to Namtar)

The Master: You stopped the threat from the east, and their master has retreated. If you want to reach, and kill him, you will have to go through The Indomitable...

Demonic Rituals: The changeling demons have been stopped and their essence has sealed in the demonlords. If you wish to finish them once and for all, you must collect more essence to reach their Demonic Library.

The Last of the First: You have eliminated the Druid threat in the west, and the dragons fled through the underground labyrinths. While they pose no threat and your western borders are safe, it might be worth pursuing. Unfortunately, that requires more exploration the labyrinths.

A Game of Kings: Due to the killing of the high general Issstama Itsssa, the Naga Empire has backed off. Still, their actions were unacceptable. If you wish to find their Kingdom and take vengeance, it will require further searches into the swamp.

With the latest update I was able to beat both Shifting passages and The Labyrinth, so I think that the developers are going in the right direction OR I'm improving my skills (or both).

Those levels haven't changed. The only considerable factor that might have made them easier is that BURNDAYRAZ got buffed. Otherwise, it's all on your own shoulders :-)

Vicious unlock quest are a good idea. But the quests are only accessible after Horratio goes down. Something like beating the previous level with 4 characters (and remove Vicious HoS, and move vamp quest to Namtar)

I disagree; I like that they appear early and stand as intimidating challenges for you to tackle when you're ready.

I kinda like that too. If there's an unlock quest, I'd like it to be short but not easy - like, defeat the corresponding Hard dungeon with under X gold prep, or while getting at least X medals.

True, if you have what it takes, they should be immediately accessible. But you don't want intermediate players wasting all their money on a vicious before Horratio, and due to the economy collapse, being unable to obtain a good amount of gold.

When do flaming dungeons start appearing? (I still haven't started a new profile...) I've had plenty of cash since they arrived, and that's after a week of banging my head against the wall that is VHoS. Run out of cash, go extinguish the flame, go get killed by the indomitable again, rinse, repeat.

Not entirely related, but I don't mind the difficulty. It keeps me interested. I remember trying to beat nethack in my youth, before you could just look everything up online.... good lord. Hours and hours gone due to a stupid mistake, as opposed to 30 minutes.

As soon as you kill Horratio (Hard Version).

So instance, Why, if I get poisoned, I can't recover health whereas If I apply poison to an opponent and walk away, he seems to recover at a normal pace. His status window reflects nothing about poison status.

Poison status goes away if you attack a monster. If you want to use the poison strategy, you should attack the monster until you need to recover, poison him as your last move, go explore tiles but DO NOT fight anything else, go back to the monster and fight him, etc. Make sure you re-poison him any additional times you need to go recover.
Similarly, why does LEMSKI (?) recover the opponent piece in addition to mine? Seems to destroy a lot of its potential.

It's only useful in-between fights. Don't use it during a fight. But if you're in-between fights and can't explore any tiles for recovery the normal way, use LEMMISEE instead of potions (which you should save for the big fights).
