Good god I hope not My entire previous playthrough could be summed up as a huge Martyr Wraps + Mage Plate + Bloodmage rampage. I only ever touched the monk to check out the Taurog Monk sillyness, decided it was unreal and went back to roasting w Bloodmages. Come to think of it the Mana Shield corroding would sure boost the Sorcerer, though.
And one more thing about the bead and martyr wraps. Last time around I was going BURNDAYRAZ heavy and I didn't once pick up Crystall Ball, thats how good Martyr Wraps supplemented by the bead and several other thingies are. Compared to the trisword the Wraps are very gold efficent, and if using goblins as much as I was during that playthrough, that buys you a lot of conversion fodder (unless you combine them for great retardedness).
And have the devs buffed the Crystal Ball yet? The gold cost seemed really offputting, and the fact that you had to charge it for conversion was really obscure... So I relied on the bead a lot more than a habitual Crystall Ball user would, I guess.
Also, if worried about the gold cost of burn salve, make sure to prep one in case of EM. It's quite a non-issue, and if you're getting use out of it it's well worth to buy another one (it also fuels Alch Scroll, Trisword, Crystal Ball and now the Cauldron sort of)
EDIT: I've finally solved halfling puzzle 2 thanks to Darvins solution. Apparently i was being a fool for not including the damned shield into calculation which made me think I have to waste the DP on the first goblin and I was ending up one hit short on the snake. For an hour.
EDIT 2: And the solution to the third one is so simple, yet so obscure and lateral that I don't know what to think. Also Darvins solution is neater, but a minor step can be made in a different way.
