Explorer's guild Starter Pack "Experience" puzzle

Postby zespri on Mon Apr 09, 2012 4:24 am

Hello All,

correct me if I'm wrong, but it looks like re-balancing something in a part of the game screwed something up in another. When you get "Starter Pack" of puzzles, the last on, called "Experience" makes you fight with Gorgon (the very first fight). A tip pops up about not worrying about getting killed by Gorgon, because of the "cheat death". However you get kill anyway a hit after, which, I think makes this puzzle un-solvable.

Am I missing something?

The Gorgon monster got a buff to its HP in a recent update, which broke this puzzle.

Thank you for answering both posts. Where is the best place to report these kind of things so that they get devs' attention and (eventually) get fixed?

The bug report thread is as good a place as any to post these sorts of things. If it's a major issue, you can also make a thread about it. Generally speaking the devs will read what is posted on the forums, though they won't always reply.

Also, loads of people report puzzle issues. A quick search when reporting something to check that someone else hasn't already brought it up saves a lot of time :)

It's cathartic to say that but the people who need to learn that lesson are completely outside the set of people who will see this thread ;)

True, I need to inspire a "search first" mentality somehow though. Not really sure how to do that without discouraging new posters too much.

Probably your best bet is probably a FAQ entry.

Hello dislekcia, thank you for pointing this out. I'm an experienced software developer myself, as well as long-time forums (and before that message boards) user. I'm very well aware of the value of a search before asking. Still, I'm strongly support you voicing this simple truth again. The more time we say it the better chance we have in getting the point across to those who do not know better yet, right? So every little bit helps and a mention even in this not that popular thread makes us a step further to promulgate this simple idea. So thank you again.

Also I would like to apologize, for me failing to find an original bug report for this particular issue. I did find some others, before posting mine, but not this one. It would help me to know, what search words did you use to locate the exact duplicate of this issue, so that the next time I can be more efficient in this "quick search" technique, that you and I are trying to promote.

An excellent game is that Desktop Dungeons of yours, thank you very much for giving us that. I'm sure that most of the user base will agree with me in saying that we, the fans, are here to help, so don't hesitate to suggest us better, more efficient way to help you move the game forward to your desired direction.

Here, Here! I totally agree with what you've said, well at least the last paragraph.
