Yeah!

I still have no idea how anybody wins that place without nuking the minibosses with an Orb of Zot though.


Big congrats on the locker slot, that's no small feat. However, zot shennanigans are not necessary. I assure you that it's doable without it (seeing that I never used it and I'm currently of a mind that DL is in fact the easiest vicious apart from Vicious Steel).

Pissorff and knockback are your friend if you can manouve the bossess with wheytwut (or pissorf). 4 of the red dijnns don't in fact have vicious boss stats, but rather lvl9 stats or easy boss stats and they are what you use as higher level kills you level up with. Then manouver the Avatar right next to the stairway and kill him.

DL is waaaay easier than it used to be. Imagine it with al the minor bosses having something like as many HP again and an extra death protection or two.

Quite pleased with getting this one with those badges and those gods and items (/not a Crystal Ball or Dwarven Gauntlets or Getindare or anything). Even though I forgot to fight SMM earlyish.

They might not have a great deal of HP for bosses, but their attack is still high enough to be deadly to most classes that haven't already spent some time powering up. Throwing physical resources at them doesn't seem practical because there are five and you really need to save most for the last actual boss. What I've been worried about is that by the time my hero would be strong enough to reasonably take hits from one, I wouldn't have the blackspace left to safely get through them all. Whereas with the Orb of Zot, their max HP drops low enough that I can ignore their attack altogether and hit them solely with death protections and/or fireball barrages from a low level (4 -> 5 for the first), wasting far less blackspace dealing with the regular enemies and giving me the time to neatly weaken and take them out one by one as I explore.

Well, I'm sure I'll figure out another strategy when I eventually attempt purist.

Well, I'm proud of this - seemed rather hard, even though I prepped the guitar.

I even mada a mistake right at the beginning and got mystera mad, so everything had extra resists. But I kept going, making compromises, converted all my food at one point as it was the only way to heal, picked something up mid-boss fight while at no food, took no mystic balance (3 weakenings eventually, though), and after what seems like forever I finaly did the old sanguine + bloodswells routine for the end (I actually can't remember the last time I did that).

I remember I was grandstanding about DL a week or two back because a Dwarven Rogue with a Blue Bead let me kill like 30 Avatar spawns, and I hadn't even seen Zot yet. Probably the most non-standard thing I did was at one point be attacking a retaliate: fireball physically and a high physical resist with fireballs at the same time over the course of two dings.

After having just done a really annoying playthrough with the Gorgon in the Rock Garden, I know understand why that is brag worthy. You get a high five sir!

Second Vicious token win. First without the Balanced Dagger - so it _is_ possible! Man, look at that gold though. Vicious + Burning + Bet on Boss = win.

Grats :D VT wins are very satisfying because of how difficult they can be. All the extra gold is just the icing on the cake
