They fixed that in the last update, so it's really not a big deal for him anymore. In any case, that was less difficulty and more developer oversight.

I think that Dwarf Monk would be even harder. The thing with elves is that they are like a weird bolt-on caster module for any class. An elf anything (where "anything" excludes Berserker) becomes a better caster than an a stock Wizard or Sorcerer. This lets you largely ignore your own class if you so choose. This is important in the case of Monks in the Cursed Oasis, because every... single... monster... is murder for you in melee, but having a strong fireball option lets you mostly bypass this. A Dwarf offers little for the Monk and offers no alternative to having to deal with poison, curse, and magic damage.

The boss, of course, is a different thing altogether, but I think the slight gains made by the Dwarf here are, uh, dwarfed by the challenge of getting to him.

Take a short visit to the local temple of Mystera Annur and she'll balance you right up.

In any case, you're probably right that dwarf is the greater challenge here. For me, I'm always forgetting that dwarves exist as anything other than rogues and bloodmages.

If we include Monster Classes, I think Vampire on Labyrinth is by far the worst combination :) Can someone manage to do that?

That doesn't seem so bad to me. It's been a few months since I've played, but I'll give it a try!

Beat if first try.

It certainly wasn't easy, but it wasn't as bad as most of the Cursed Oasis combos.
