You know you're obsessed when you have almost hit 2000 posts. Uh oh.

As I said earlier: Don't scum. Just play each and every time to its full extent and try your hardest to win every time. You'll learn things, and you might even win when you least expect it. So just keep playing till your about to break your computer with frustration, then play a few more, and then stop. Well, that won't happen. It's not like wizard gold is even in the least bit frustrating. ;)
We made an expansion and it is awesome. Really, you should check it out, especially if you're looking for some extra challenge.

Heh, also: Wizard Gold is another dungeon that's using what I'll call the Nostalgia Monster Generator (ie. a nicer way of saying "absolutely no intelligent spawn placement").

Gold challenges are going to err on the side of difficult for a while, but that's why we're gradually moving away from them becoming "unlock walls" for items and other important stuff. For the moment, a higher priority is being given to Silver feedback.

Just did wizard gold. Found Mystera, Stone Heart and PISORF at spawn. Used WEYTWUT for positioning as I didn't find ENDISWAL. Killed the Meat Man first since I couldn't find the Iron Man.

Recon this strat could be a scumless win in Namtar?

I already have my PISORF Namtar Wizard, down, so it definitely works.

"PISORF" and "scumless" do not mix, since there is no way to ensure this glyph will spawn in.

I'm sure there are broken PISORF strategies revolving around rock heart that haven't been nailed yet simply because the centerpiece must be scummed for, or else the entire strategy falls apart.

@Darvin: Yeah I know, but it's pretty close

@Avatar: Cool, I might see if I can get it down reliably and if I can I'll put up a guide.

Yeah, That's why they should put up a glyph locker IMO. You can't get a reliable PISORF or ENDISWALL. They are both extremely important glyphs in certain scenarios, so it's kind of annoying. On the other hand they could have a glyph shop, which would be very akin to an apothecary, that would sell 4-5 of the glyphs that haven't spawned picked at random. They would be 0 CP, and there would be a way to make the shop start near you. (New Bazaar prep? Replace Shop Scroll?)

OK, more tests with mage plate

Elf wizard with mage plate and mystera prepped on Havendale Bridge. Hit somewhere around 42 mana (pendant, heroes' helm and elven boots from shops) and -105% attack bonus without trying too hard : p... it was interesting not being able to melee popcorn but the whole shebang worked out pretty well.

Actually think with this combo, if you're going elf that conversion scroll isn't a terrible choice (since it means your first glyph is worth 2 mana rather than 1 - mostly an opportunity sacrifice in case a battlemage ring or something comes up)

I haven't figured out how it's different from it's first form. Anyone know?
