The relationship of between corrosion and damage reduction was really helpful.(If you know what I mean..)

The Vicious Halls of Steel with Vicious token was not a real problem.

The real problem was Vampire..
(Horrible monster combinations for Vamp.. 1 undead(ghost), 2 physical registers(25%curse rock, 50%weakening lizard), 1 high damage monster(magician))

At least, Monk could worship gods but Vampire couldn't.

Difficulty : Vampire(1 Hardest) >> Monk(2) >>>>> etc

So.. what is the next vicious map(next easiest map) which you guys recommend?

Awesome job!

What did you use for the vicious token?

Also - from this point on people's opinions differ on which vicious is the most difficult. I'd say naga city isn't too bad as far as completion is concerned. Not sure about the token though.

Congratulations! I'm with you on Vampire being an awful match for VHoS. I took it there thinking I could pick up a missing badge (Faithless) and class at once. Nope. It's horrible. There's nothing good to lifesteal, and then you have no gods and crippled mana besides. To see it through, you have more fortitude than I.

My guess is Berserker.

I consider Naga City and Dragon Isles the easier of the remaining Vicious.

Naga City with the vicious token is obscenely cheap. Doable, but cheap. I beat all but it and (V)VGT.

Thanks guys.

It was enough with Human Berserker, but I think Priest with Binlor Ironshield is an ideal class for the map. ;)

Really? I've found Orc Taurog Berserkers clean up the place. Heck, its easier than (V)HHoS for them, because you're guaranteed a second magic boss.

In Naga City there are so many bosses it is impossible to make it off potion power (per the norm). Unfortunately, you can't make it off mid fight level ups either, at least not frequently enough to be great. That means you have to be good enough to consistently beat a 120 damage 636 hp boss. And those are the easy ones. On top of that, leveling up is extra difficult (not just naga city. Vicious Token in general). I only say doable because everything is technically doable, though with enough luck a monk could probably win.

How many glyphs would he need? Would a CP monster monk be able to pull it off?

Potentially. BURNDAYRAZ is probably essential (Goo and Wraith, also good for regen fighting). Also, HALPMEH, APHEELSIK, and maybe GETINDARE are not worth converting.

Waldo0: Have you gotten 99% (all but token) on other dungeons? I managed it on all but VGT, but I got the token on all but VGT and NC.

EDIT: Also, extra attack boosters can't be prepped and neither can the dragon shield--both important preps.

Do you mean the classes?

I cleared vicious maps for a long times ago just to unlock some new items or monster classes or 9999Golds.

So, Other Vicious maps are just 13% cleared now.

K, I'll try to clear the Naga city this time.

Thanks
