Good to see those numbers, Darvin. Just the thought of decreasing my chances of picking up getindare makes me sad. Increasing those chances is very tempting, but I think I just prefer the guaranteed attack boosters instead.
I took down Namtar's Lair yesterday. After scouting it out a bit I realized it wasn't going to be as difficult as I originally thought. What I was worried about was the life stealing Shades and Namtar's undead forms. Both weren't too bad. The shades aren't as annoying as they are on Cursed Oasis because there aren't as many of them and Namtar's undead forms are easy as well if you go in there prepared. It also helps having a bunch of mid level trolls as allies
I had a real cool moment in the PAAAAAAAN labyrinth. I had never been in there before and found it early and talked to the troll. He tells me to explore if I want but it's dangerous, and that was enough to send me running back up stairs. I was forced to go back down there though after exhausting all my black tiles upstairs during the mid game vampire struggle. I go in fully over healed like a boss, take one step and BAM! a fucking imp has 99% life steal and takes it all hahaha. I am pissed off now but after a few moments of thought my anger turns to happiness once I realize these imps are actually blood banks and are the greatest ally a vampire could ask for. I go back up, feed off my trolls, go down and explore to refill my trolls and pass off the life they've given me to the the next little blood bank. Rinse and repeat. When all was said and done there were 3 or 4 imps holding on to 125-150hp for me. That was awesome
