Why isn't the half-dragon allowed to attack a magic immune creature? Just remove that arbitrary restriction and there shouldn't be any problem. (Well, there's still like a 5% chance that you won't have any feasible way to use knockback on him, but still...)

The reason they did this in the first place was because there are obscure ways to deal damage even if you deal 0 damage, which meant being immune to physical damage didn't make a monster immune to being damaged by a physical attack.

Aside from corrosion damage being irresistible (which IMO is just silly, but whatever), what exactly is the problem? Just give "immune" monsters immunity to corrosion. Or, for monsters that are immune to only one type of damage, grant corrosion immunity when the player uses the "wrong" kind of attack. Or maybe just revert corrosion damage to being physical-type, which would have the ancillary effect of making the Martyr Wraps less overpowered. Honestly, this all seems to me like needless overcomplication to defeat what is essentially a gimmick strategy that most players will never use (and the ones who do don't actually need it to win).

As far as Magma Mines is concerned, I totally concur. If someone wants to invoke the power of Jehora or lug around a really big sword, that's totally cool. I think the devs concern is more with regards to class challenges and some subdungeons where they want to prevent "cheating".

And the err, corrosion adjustment might also be a good idea on its own due to Martyr Wraps.

As for the misunderstanding with Avatar - Avatar, you just cleared it up, it was a misunderstanding on my part :)

I agree. Corrosion should not be irresistible, but it should simply add on the type of damage you're already doing. If he has 3 corrosion and you fireball, you get 3 more magic damage. If you attack, you get 3 more physical damage. Then you can still have immunity vs resistances if you want to, and corrosion will never get in the way.

I haven't been able to play DD for a little while now through my browser... so I was wondering, when are we going to be able to get our downloadable copies of the game? Haven't had any problems running Unity games that I've downloaded. Besides, I'd much prefer to play DD on my Desktop then through a web browser. Please let us know if there's any word when it will be available.

Thanks.

The final product will be a downloadable game. The beta test is a webgame because that is by far the easiest and fastest way to get new versions out without getting bug reports from 30 different users playing 30 different versions of the game.

I thought a little bit about Magefist: Why dont you just deal damage to you equal to 4*enemymonsterlevel. That way, you still have that damage effect, but you could still attack units with Poison/Weaking and so on... and CURSE.. oh my god curse is just ridicolous with the magefist^^
