Yup, it's still fully function (I busted two holes with ENDISWAL to reach LEMMISI here; new monster placement makes it much harder to round up all the glyphs...)

That's really neat. I'm jelly.

So I tried prepping Soul Orb in dragon isles and it turns out it's super easy. The only items I bought were a fine sword and a spoon (apart from conversion fodder). I had 10 mana potions left over : http://i.imgur.com/vpK97.png

Heh, and you only had 16 mana. You can go much higher than that with a little love from Jehora Jeheyu :)

Anyone got a good Gaan or Namtar strategy that doesn't involve the tri-sword?

I have no idea how you unlock the Crypt in this version of the game. I've been grandfathered since ancient times.


The Crypt can no longer be unlocked. Honestly, I'm surprised everyone still has access to it.

Namtar is easy pretty much with any class once you prep Binor. As for a race and a locker item I usually take the alchemist scroll and orc/halfling (whichever have better synergy with the class). Spam piety at lvl 1 and take down all mobs res, it makes leveling up sooooo much easier - mobs with no res, you will have ~3x% magic res and the map without walls is easy to explore efficiently. Convert out if it's possible (at lvl 1-2) but usually it won't since there will be just 2 other altars and you can't really go with TT (this early), Dracul, GG, Mystra, so the choice here is very limited. Anyway, just make sure you have enough piety to get lvl 10 safely. I usually WHUPAZ his sec form just cause weakening is annoying but it doesn't matter too much as I always have fortitude potion saved from the preparations. The underworld is pretty easy if you have done everything correctly. I usually have so much resources left it's not even close, could prob take another 2 lvl 10 bosses.

Thanks for the tips!

I had a go with a tri-sword halfling priest a while ago (before I became good at Vicious dungeons) and died to his 3rd form I think. No wait, I took in a fireball assassin and died to his "counters fireball" form :lol:

Regarding level 10 piety, I always feel pretty safe with binlor knowing that there is 120 piety worth of walls in the Smuggler's Den.

I'm going to try this out.

Oh right, I've totally forgotten about the extra walls there. I don't prep the Den anymore, prefer the Black Market, as I find it hard to use efficiently. I always want to save the tiles to the very end, on the other hand there are 3 boosters there, which help you early but I guess in this case it might not be a bad idea to take it. I also usually take swap MP to HP boosters as this is pure dmg build. Btw even with 30% walls eroded there will be enough piety worth to take down 50% res, take the attack boost boon and save some up for the lvl ups. GL on your runs, I'm sure you will succeed.
