No clue, but it could be anything... Some percent of erosion (you learned to curse them back)? Damage resistance 1% every X stacks removed? Whatever works!

And the cauldron positively HAS to work this way, as the way it currently works has too many problems - everything but the weakening and the corrosion falls off too easily. The only problem is how to deal with the potential halpmeh exploit? Because if it wasn't for HALPMEH in heavy plant levels, you would get stacks from:

Drinking health and mana potions, dringking burn salve and fortitude potions, GG's curse removal, Chaos Avatar and thats basicaly it. And that is probably manageable.

------------------On topic:

I had a flaming CO and a PQI in Slime Pits. Then I did the flaming CO, so I got a PQI somewhere where I had the class and badge and a flaming HARD Gaan'Telet. Then I did the Gaan'Telet and guess what - now I have a flaming Slime Pits and a PQI CO. Big whoop!

Random is random. I'd grab that one in an instant, I like to vary hard/easy runs.

But it's not supposed to be random.

And of course I completed it immediately :lol:

Yes, it doesn't follow the rules:
Aequitas wrote:- It always selects the dungeon with the lowerst completion rating (with vicious dungeons getting a 50% 'boost'), if there is a tie, it picks one at random.
- It always chooses a badge/class that you haven't done the dungeon with, and if there are none, it chooses one at random.

So, either the rules don't mention the random element, or it's completely, unintentionally borked. I think it's the former :)

It's funny - A short wile ago I got flodded with PQI leading into CO, even after doing 1 or two runs there. The catch? Ick Swamp. Only went their ONCE in my whole game, and luckily won that. Well, now that I did a few in both dungeons it works pretty normal.. but still, I found that weird.

If PQI is picking a 100% complete dungeon over a (non vicious) 80% complete dungeon, then there is a problem.
Could somone post a few screenshots? (yes, I know the shot can be spoofed by getting the PQI, and then getting the class and badge completions seperately)

A few relogs should do the trick. I got one, not quite hobblers hold but doesn't seem to follow the rules either.

Edit: this is a 75% being picked over 42%+ ones, all badges collected, class done.

I have no screenshots but it happens to me when it sends me to dungeons with a lower amount of class completions if my overall class completion is someone I've allready done the dungeon with.

I've seen a few PQI's with Thieves and Assasins in places where I've allready done them. Maybe it's trying to line up too many lowest completion things at once and causes one to fail spectacularly?

Is only 100% completion being picked wrong? I don't have all monster classes unlocked yet.
Is PQI supposed to choose from easy/normal mode dungeons too? I never really done hobblers hold - got 'locked out' of it after doing a normal one early on. So the completion is low and I get sent there sometimes.
Does race matter? I've seen quite a few with class/badge done.
Can PQI choose 80% completion over 40%?
