To be honest, I don't even know how.

Yeah I beat Horatio for the first time today, I was putting it off cause I thought Gaan'Talet was a lot harder than it is. The basic version is not too tough at all. I beat it on the second try with a Dwarf Bloodmage, with like 20 pools still leftover. Trophies go up to 150g, and while that isn't as much as they are worth originally, the value never goes down anymore, and using "bet on boss" on the burning dungeons can get you over 800g per run.

Collect more monster trophies and the quest line will open up the final dungeon eventually once you find one of each.

Oh, so that is how it works... I just need the nose ring, I can never seem to kill Rex last. It got to the point, I am not even bringing Preps.

Rack up ten gold and prep Binlor. It's a huge help.

Normally I can even find good people to fight ( and sometimes while not thinking convert burn), I will try Sorc once I can some more money built up. Most of the time your forced to fight either Wraiths or Golbins at low level.

Edit- Completed as Sorc, to be honest it might just be the fact that I need so much preps to take it on, so I need to do tons of gold farming bewteen runs so it just feels harder.


JJ Rogue might be a fairly good choice if that's your trouble - Weytwut allows you to first strike goblins, bonus HP to two-shot higher-level ones and the resist-lowering/first-strike combo is fantastic for the bosses (you two-shot the MR one, then can insta-kill the PR one) and any wraiths/goos. Also, Rogue with Strength potion will let you get a very solid first kill.

JJ rogue seems like it would be good for MM, but right now, I am getting farming to be easier.
Btw, I got nose ring though orc paladin of taurog. And just going though Taurog, Binlor, and GG, it all came down to I only have enough resourses for one boss. But in the taurog one I found a keg'o'health.

Are you using ENDISWALL(to make leveling easier) and mid fight level ups (to make bosses easier)? Then you should easily have enough for both. Anyways, grats, and good luck against Horratio!

Just got my Magma Mines warmonger (and specialist) badge with the JJ rogue. Prepped midas gloves, sword and transmutation scroll, found a trisword, pendant of health, badge of courage and tower shield. I'd probably prep Dwarven Gauntlets given the choice (+2HP/level is a big deal for pipping a non-dwarf/non-alch-scroll rogue to the 100 mark where you can reliably take on one of the minor bosses). Definitely prep a reflex potion, since that'll let you one-shot the Magic Res boss. Prep a strength potion and you can usually get a level 3-4 minotaur as your first kill. Take one HP boost straight after dealing with punishments (normally for a warmonger rogue I'd say you can mostly ignore petition but getting corrosion up is very bad with the bosses on this one unless you've got alchemist scroll). Convert glyphs on sight as Orc/Dwarf, leave a few low-level goblins around to trigger dodge potion if you need it.

Anyway, one of the trickiest badges in the non-vicious game I think (GG could get Warmonger but not Specialist, Taurog might be doable with Whuggarbl)...
