My strategy is pissing EM off 10 times, then converting out to MA or someone like that.

You could pretty much pick up flames at MA afterwards :D

Exactly ;)

Actually, in some cases I can see the Tiki Tooki Method being better. Then you can use burn salves without losing your bonus.

Hi Devs,
nice work with the latest update, but I found a problem with immunities:
Playing as a Halfdragon I found it impossible to beat Magma Mines, as you can't attack Hurr (the one with magic immunity) neither directly (because your attack is magical) nor with a fireball.
Knockbacking other monsters into him will do damage, but won't finish him off.

Am i missing something?

I just got the Naga Cauldron.

This run was with an Orc Crusader. Preparations: Trisword, Black Market, Attack Boosters, Perseverance Badge, reflex/quicksilver/whupaz. The only things different about this run than my previous ones: I actually needed the arena shops, and I chased the Prince up into the prayer room while killing him rather than a corner of the arena.

Eh?

You don't lose the bonus if you lose the stacks? Do explain, pls :)

Oooh, that may be an oversight on our part. Interesting question. Any forum members got ideas off the top of their heads? We may have to revert to plain resistances on the gobbos.

Wow. That's literally impossible. There is absolutely no way to kill him with a half-dragon.

@Lujo: With my EM method I will have a lot of corrosion. If I use a burn salve I won't be corroded and the bonus (should) revert to 0%. Right?

Unless you meant the right comment. I'm not quite sure what I thought you meant when I typed that. It was very late, so I probably thought it was some dumb joke instead of the boon. I don't really know.

Change a point or two of the Half-Dragon's attack to be physical?
Convert the immunity of the one you don't kill to 99% resistance when you kill the first one?

Just change them to resistance. If you want to use Jehora/Binlor/Mystera/BYSSEPS/RBS/Martyr Wraps/Piercing Wand, I really don't see why they shouldn't work here. Heck, with the "specialist" change it's not like there's any real achievement in winning with a single type of damage.
