Well that was faster than I expected. Time to look for new content.

Two Questions:

1. Is there supposed to be a new dungeon?

2. I cannot complete complicated tasks five because I cannot get the warmonger award.

Ooh, pretty.

And is that the outline of a goat's head I see?

Quick quest comment

1) Weird gimmick. Hilariously easy as a Paladin. Be sure to kill everything before you even touch the boss.

2) Boss seems... unfair in the sense that either you have piercing wand and win easily or... you don't. The very big sword hasn't been useful since god knows how long so that definitely can't help.

3) Haven't done it.

Minor issue (and I'm not sure it can be fixed), but the repeated action cost bar can look really funky if there's a low damage to health ratio. Case in point being the Soko-trolls puzzles. Like I said, just a minor issue, and given the mechanics I'm not sure if it can be fixed.

If you aren't playing paladin, the first quest mission is plain nasty. I decided I was hell-bent on completing it as a bloodmage, and that took a few tries (eventually got a piercing wand so I didn't need to clean up the whole level). The second mission... totally agree, it's very much fishing for the piercing wand. I don't see any other way to beat this level in the current build, 80% resistance is totally unassailable by conventional means. To some extent I'm glad to see a different approach to bosses than just "really really high damage", but resists above 66% are kinda broken.

Agree that something needs to be done about RBS. It's outright horrible currently. Taurog also really needs a physical bypass item. He's a wasted alter on levels that are cluttered with physical resistance.

The river in the 2nd mission's level can render parts of the dungeon completely inaccessible.

I got it done with an assassin and a really big sword. Took a few tries, some were close (have to remember to pick up all potions before crossing). Final attempt I didn't worship any gods, I took a triblade, but didn't really buy anything special (unless you count a tower shield). His damage is really quite low for a boss, and his health isn't that high, so with 55% resist (after really big sword) it is quite doable. I did get a bit lucky with getting the power up subdungeon, although I didn't end up needing the extra tiles (zombie money is way over powered as a subdungeon, due to the extra xp you get).

I did mission 2 the obvious way, but rbs and/or mystera's resistance reduction would do it too. Agreed that it's really limited. Is there supposed to be a 3rd mission or just the dungeon?
