The posted solution to Glowing Guardian 2 does not work. In particular, since the venom dagger only blocks 5 points of regeneration, it doesn't do nearly enough to prevent the troll from healing while you heal up from exploring.
I tried some alternative approaches, but
- cleansing doesn't help since the troll has 50% resist to both physical and magical damage.
- converting the dagger immediately (to avoid the 10 piety penalty when first attacking the troll) doesn't help, you still only have enough to use Protection twice (healing back to 13hp)
- saving the potion for use against the troll doesn't appear possible (must level up prior to first attack against troll, must kill level 2 zombie to level up, must use potion to kill level 2 zombie)
Is this puzzle actually possible?
Additionally, (using humility in this puzzle lowers your health regen back to 1 hp/square. Is this supposed to happen? It's not clear from the description, and the tooltip on the heart icon doesn't change to reflect this)
