Hm. The Wiki says Ick Swamp is unlocked by beating Southern Swamp - which I've done with four classes, including all available quests. No Ick Swamp, though. :(

Later? Really? Dracul was my first unlock. So early I forget where I was.

Not possible; Dracul has always required Glowing Guardian to be unlocked first before he appears.

I think the earliest he can appear is the Eastern Tundra, and the probability rises as you go deeper. When I first ran through, his probability of appearing was very small and I had to play Halls of Steel about 30 times before I finally got him.

The dungeon order has been changed. Ick Swamp now requires you to beat Hexx Ruins. After you beat Hexx Ruins, you will eventually stumble upon a naga war party that issues you a challenge, unlocking the Ick Swamp.

I DID find Mischief in Hexx. Just not sure what combination of abilities I need to play things by his rules. One of his forms has retaliate fireball, and a few are level 10, so I can't Assassin cheap-shot past him either. Best I can think of is an Orc Rogue with a Crystal Ball to fireball the forms without retaliate.

Just don't get hit.

WEYTWUT and GETINDARE both make this subdungeon really easy. They must have changed it on Friday, since there weren't any level 10 forms when I played through most recently.

I'm pretty sure it's based on your level, and he levels 3 or so levels throughout the fight. Start as a level 1 wizard. Find Mischief, level up to 3 or 4 and destroy him.

I did an unlock strategy guide of sorts a while back. Might answer some of your questions.

I should add that some of the details have changed since I made that. The way that banks give money to adventurers changed, making the bank all upside with no downside. Tikki Tooki and Earthmother switched places in unlock order, and the criterion for opening the directional quests are slightly different now. Also, that was when challenges didn't give any money. If I were to do this again, picking off bronze and easy silvers would have been a big part of my planning.
