Strike Order Help

Postby madjoseph on Sat Sep 10, 2011 1:12 am

Okay, color me thick, but I can't get past the Strike Order puzzle in the Explorer's Guild. I'm not very good at this sort of puzzle game, but i do Like Desktop Dungeons.

Would some kind soul please throw me a bone? I've played this one twenty times and I'm still dying.

Thanks

You have enough mana for three casts of first strike. You don't want to use it against the goblin, since he has first strike himself. You also don't want to use it for the first hit against the zombie, because he will survive and retaliate this one anyways.

This leaves four hits where first strike would actually be useful so you have to decide on which one to skip the first strike. Three of the four deal the same damage and one deals more. That's the one you don't want to skip the others are equally good since poison doesn't do anything in this scenario.

Hope this helps. In case of desperation full walkthrough below.

[SPOILER]
Code: Select all
- take up rune
- attack goat
- cast first strike; attack serpent
- attack zombie; cast first strike; attack zombie
- attack goblin
- cast first strike; attack warlock
- attack warlock lvl2; cast first strike; attack warlock lvl2
