11 more vicious PQI's to go. I got this so far:
Northern Desert - Gnome Bloodmage (Blue Bead, Mystic Balance) Try: 1st
Berserker Camp - Goblin Wizard (CB, Mysterea, B2P), Boss: Medusa Try: 2nd
Hobblers Hold - Goblin Thief (CB, Weakening, Mystic Balance) Try: 1st
Labyrinth - Goblin Wizard (CB, Refreshment) Boss: Firstborn, Try: 1st
Eastern Tundra - PQI Elven Crusader, Binlor (Pissorff, Knockback), TT (Potions), Trisword + PISSORF, went cheeky and specialist on top and somehow missed unstoppable, even though I killed everything. Try: 2nd (i forgot to bring trisword first time on a missclick)
Den of Danger - Gnome Rogue (Trisword, PISORF, TT), Boss: Jormungandr, Try: 1st
Grimm's Grotto - PQI Halfling Warlord (Cydstepp, Trisword, Binlor (stoneskin, knockback). Boss: Frank, try: 1st
Magma Mines - PQI (?) Goblin Sorcerer (CB, Mystic Balance, Witchalok Pendant, quicksilver dodge on the phys immune guy)
Halls of Steel - PQI Gnome Berserker (Binlor for knockback and 3 Stone Heart, Mysterea for Mystic Balance, was tricky). Boss: Wraith. Try 1st.
Western Jungle - PQI Halfling Assasin (hoped to Binlor + PISSORFF, ended up throwing everything and using a million clearances). 2nd try.
Did them off Flaming runs mostly, with a few PQI. Get them out of the PQI, and out of the completion, please.
Bloodmag is fine, except now there's some justification for his insane sanguine, and some need for him to interact with content. Anyone doubtiong, pick up a blue bead and mystic balance and you still have the same old monster except with more of a "special" kind of gameplay and less synergy with dings.
B2P is simply not braindead anymore, and not "auto pickup and drop whatever you've been doing and go pure caster with anything" glyph.
Some dungeons obviously need to be made a small tad harder in normal mode - Northern Desert, Eastern Tundra and Berserker Camp, and possibly Southern Swamp. I guess the dev's wanted to see if they've brought the overall diffuculty too low , and in some places they have.
Mysterea is probably too good and self sufficent ATM, but I guess that's also being focused right now. So is the wizard.
For all practical purposes I'm still on break/strike. I hope when they move the damned vicious out of the PQI I don't lose my completions, doing all this again is not gonna be fun.
I almost got pwned by Shifty Brickwork!
