Rat Monarch in Hexx Ruins

Made my most embarrassing mistake so far... Prepped GG thinking I would use absolution to start attacking high levels more easily, and cleansing to deal with revenant poison. Completely forgot about the large prayer beads! Of the 20 people who have played so far, I was the only one to make this mistake!

Second altar was PM, I had to explore about 80% of the map to find Mystera for converting. A lucky combination of platemail, LEMMISI and Cha'Dylan subdungeon made this dungeon very doable.

Pretty much the only thing I did right was avoiding mystic balance in favour of body pact and usable LEMMISI.

So, here is my 29 health potion video from the other day.

I don't know why, but Refreshment didn't work as intended, it somehow triggered before Spirit Sword instead of after.
I suspect that it is somehow linked to the Less Glyph prep as well, but I couldn't explain it so far.

Even after looking at the game's code, I still can't explain what's happening there.

I believe that I could have gotten Chaos Avatar if I had switched to JJ and desecrated MA with the collar. But I was afraid to get screwed by getting randomly Mana Burned by JJ, so I didn't go that way.
We made an expansion and it is awesome. Really, you should check it out, especially if you're looking for some extra challenge.

Why didn't you ever use LEMMISI in the Subrandugeonnn? You could have easily met the threshold some more times, just by interlacing that at the start with your scouting LEMMISI uses. More by doing it instead of over-using ENDISWAL.

I didn't because... I didn't think about it. That's a very good point.

I never thought of it, but you could even prep the smuggler's den just to be able to use LEMMISI a LOT during the exploration phase.

Thanks, I'll try that next time :-)

Vampire in the Labyrinth

As I type this post, this DERP has 62 losses and 1 victory (congrats, jjj!) I decided to post this now for anyone who is seeking a challenge.

Four reasons why this DERP is very difficult:
Spoiler: show
1. No WEYTWUT, WONAFYT, or ENDISWAL.
2. Rex blocks a pretty large portion of the bottom left section.
3. Lots of high level zombies.
4. The random enemy is bandits.

One thing I was trying is killing enemies with fireball pops while simultaneously killing popcorn. This requires some painstaking mathematics to pull off, but if your adjacent tiles include 2 walls, one empty tile and one popcorn, then Rex is guaranteed to take the place of the popcorn, and you may pass the popped foe.

Eventually, I ran out of options and had to start fighting either boss. I was underleveled and didn't have enough blood cows, so failure was inevitable.

However,
Spoiler: show
I seem to recall converting a glyph that would have made this dungeon possible...

Good luck to anyone who wants to try this DERP!

EDIT: The day ended with only one victory on the leaderboards.

Yeah, if I were to redo this, I'd try to save a few more blood cows by pushing them out of my way. However, I converted it at a point when I really needed the lifesteal (in retrospect, I didn't need it THAT much). I managed to kill Rex with all my resources, but didn't have a chance to take down the final boss. Has there ever been a daily with only one success?

Yes, there has been. A Goatperson in Labyrinth that I was the only one to win, thanks to a spoiler screenshot.
Wasn't really doable without it.

Rat Monarch in Magma Mines

This was by far my most upsetting loss so far, because I revealed about three quarters of the map without finding any glyphs. I should've taken a screenshot for the approx. 1/4000 bad rng.

Dwarf Bloodmage in Berserker Camp

What should be a walk in the park became probably my closest win ever, thanks to

Spoiler: show
this being the SECOND TIME on this map that I've pissed off Glowing Guardian early without realizing it (and there really was no reason to pick them first, just a habit). I'm not expecting to ever really get consistent if I forget that lol, but lucky I still had a PISORF. After immediately using Pactmaker to switch to Dracul, cinching a win with 4 health remaining and no items, after being forced to piss off Glowing Guardian AGAIN for the piety and take the hard appreciated Full Heal from Dracul twice, which thanks to being a Dwarf, is probably the best time I've ever used it.


And it doesn't even matter cuz I must've forgotten I missed a daily in the past week to continue my streak.

Your semiregular Goatperson in The Labyrinth is here! Here's your spoiler since I sure as heck wasn't lucky enough:

BURNDAYRAZ was somewhere at the top middle-ish area.
