Nice strat! I hadn't found the boss so I didn't know how easy he was. My fight went like this

3 Endiswals, attack, 2 endiswals, health potion, attack, mana potion, getindare, win.

I forgot to use my fortitude and burn salve before him too :(

Just a tip for peeps, when you get IMAWAL just use it on level 7s to 9s. You can squeeze a bit more xp out of the lower level mobs that way.

Yeah, that's why I labeled it as very useful.
We made an expansion and it is awesome. Really, you should check it out, especially if you're looking for some extra challenge.

Ha! Btw I needed all the glyphs to break 50 damage at level 7 (converted all except ENDISWAL and GETINDARE I mean). I don't trust the bonus damage on first strike even a bit.

Btw, is that bonus damage applied after normal attack bonus? The rounding error thing got me thinking.

Okay, here's how it works: First, it calculates the 30% bonus off your base, rounding where necessary. Then, it calculates your normal percent bonus off your base, rounding where necessary, and then it adds both numbers to your base.

Also, didn't you forget to chug your fortitude and burn potions before the boss? That would be why it's necessary. And even if you did remember all you need to do is 47 damage (150-10 (Extra Damage)=140. 140/3=47 (Rounded)).

Oh yeah, the lack of pot usage explains it.

Kind of weird that they are separate but additive. I wonder why it wasn't implemented like the Warlord's +30% attack when low on life mechanic.

That might be the same double round. Same with berserker against high level bonus.

Try the new sorc silver. They took my suggestion and made it Eeblis, but without most preps AND gods it's pretty tricky. Also, why does it recommend Blacksmith 3? What would you even use the RBS for in this dungeon? Oh yeah, they made gold easier too! He only has 33 in both lives and MA automatically starts near you(at least she did with my first try.

There's like a billion Bloo Goos in there with 50% phys resist, so the RBS isn't necessary but it may be useful.

Surprised they made gold easier, I don't remember having a lot of trouble with it.

Oh, and yeah MA doesn't always start near the beginning. I got Binlor.

They made gold the undefeatable. And then they made the undefeatable easier. Gold used to be Eeblis with preps. That was easy, not the undefeatable.
