Somehow Paladin is the only on I beat, I think. It seemed really, really easy compared to the rest of them.

Uh... Really? You never beat priest? Or thief? Or anything else?

Nop. I think. I distinctly remember checking paladin out and thinking "whait, this one is actually doable" and did it in 2 tries (I think I messed up something banal in the first one). It's the old Ick Swamp or something very simmilar, which I must've done a 100 times before. Or simmilar enough. I used to do that thing with purist monks back when it was part of the quest chain, so I thought it must be doable...

Wow. Well go back and try some more. Most are doable, and some are even EASY (relatively speaking of course).

Maybe it's changed since you tried it? As I recall, the Paladin Gold boss currently has 95% phys AND mag resist, meaning basically the only two ways to win are to stack corrosion or reduce his resistance. You're limited to Earthmother, who I don't think can stack enough corrosion by herself to pull it off, and of the other three options - Martyr Wraps, Piercing Wand, BICEPS - you'll have to scum if you want either of the first two.

Yeah. That was its first incarnation too I believe.

I must've hit a decent combination of corrosion and BYCEPS then.

Even so, he's harder than most of the golds. 590 or so hp, 90 attack, and 95% resist all is no joke.

I think I've literally never failed to win a Paladin Gold run in testing, and it's actually been kinda depressing every time I've gone back and nerfed it more as a response to these sort of threads. I doubt I'm going to make it any easier, this really does seem to boil down to a playstyle paradigm.

Wraps and Wand are nice, but they're certainly not critical and I don't think I've ever depended on them. BYSSEPS is a guaranteed spawn.

What Nandrew said, I seemed to figure out that Bycepps was guaranteed, and I used EM for a load of mana replenish for it and HALPMEH. The whole thing must've invloved removing debuffs somehow, and level catapulting.
