I'm considering adjusting Witch 4, 5 and 6 at some point. Also maybe polishing the Magma Mines themselves.

I actually just did this quest last night. Goblin Priest to turn potions into exp, platemail, extra shop, went Binlor midgame, foolishly ran out of walls too early, lowered resists enough to nuke the MR henchman, desecrated to get more piety and maybe switch out to Dracul. Couldn't get enough piety in the end, but no walls meant it was uselessly just sitting there ;) Boss gold drops meant I could afford enough items to use an extra level cannon against the foreman, took him down handily.

I messed up a lot in the run though, it was nowhere near perfect. Still managed the quest though, surprising myself a few times as well.

Whoa, I never even thought about using Binlor to nuke&melee the MR henchman... :shock: Pretty situational, but still....

What's even better, is that Whrrgarbl lets you melee the physical resist henchman!

Part 5.

Someone was complaining about part 5. I just did it on the first try, against Tower of Goo as my second boss (O.O).

Prepped Taurog, took all his stuff, had platemail preped (forgot to prep compression scroll), didn't buy anything from shops but a STR potion, took two DP's from Taurog to kill the bandit, converted over to JJ, converted all the glyphs and mana potiona I was saving for later, desecrated taurog, took Chaos Avatar after two hits on the goo. He went down to hitting + HP potions. I felt really dopey.

I did find the blood fountain at some point which gave me 5% sanguine, that might've halped (can't tell how much).

I'm honestly confused, I thought I should restart when I saw the goo. Very, very strange. Got Warmonge, DING! max and Unstoppable. Something wasn't right there, I don't think it should've been that easy.

The only things I can't account for in my calculations are the Blood Fountain, the Platemail and the 5% damage boosts off of Taurogs boons. Either it's the combination of the three or just one of them, but something gave me too much power (no shops apart from a potion and no glyphs and still steamrolled, whait what? O.O)


part 6.

Taking a hint from dislexcia I used a goblin priest with platemail, went binlor (was a mistake, really), then found Drac, joined up not knowing lifesteal doesnt work, beat it on account of sanguine and goat subdungeon. and lots of bloodswells, and 2 schadenfraude. I made waaaay too many mistakes and suboptimall stuff to list. A carefull goblin priest of drac with platemail should be able to walk all over this.

Chaos Avatar lowers the resists of all monsters by 20%. So the Goo Blob only had 55% resists. And you add the 10 magic damage from your mana shield.

Well, I guess it has something to do with -20% resists haveing a large impact above 50%. Still, felt pretty goofy altogather.

Yeah, Chaos Avatar is really nice. Especially when you get The Tormented One, The Tower of Goo, and Lord Gobb all in one wave.
