Final monk quest

Tell me how to beat it because I suck.

Or at least a hint. I got the monk part down but I seem to be failing at the rest.

I beat it with Dracul abuse which probably isn't applicable in this version now. Oh well!

I think Dracul is still probably the best god for said area though. Also try to take down Meatmans early because the higher level you are, the more powers they get and late-game meatman basically ruin Monks.

Prepare the venom sword, and use the monk's fast regeneration to beat down some high-level meatmen. Once they become poisonous you'll have a great deal of difficulty fighting them, and once they become corrosive you can't touch them, so focus on getting bonus XP early and beating up as many of the higher-level meatmen as possible. Pick the smuggler preparation so you have an extra sub-dungeon of tiles to explore. The goal is to reach level 7 (preferably 8) early on with lots of tiles left to explore, and just beat the bosses down by poison antics (you'll need to use your healing potions on the poisonous super meatman, but it isn't that bad).

Well I tried and tried to get Dracul to work (starting with vampiric blade) but did not even come close to victory.

Venom sword worked first time, beat super meat man at level 6 :lol:

Smuggler's hold was very useful for that run, I never really used it before but I'll have to think about using it a lot more often from now on.

Anyway, thanks for that. Martyr Wraps are really cool (especially when starting with a burn salve).

I've been stuck on this one too. Haven't unlocked the Venom Sword yet, nor do I know where to find it - any clues? :)

If you don't have the venom blade, use the tri-sword and hope for APHEELSIK or Tikki Tooki. Since you will probably not be able to poison from the start you will have to regen fight the mana burners (with TT) or classic slimes for rapid leveling up, which is a little more expensive in regeneration terms. Then again the tri-sword will make the regen fights a little bit cheaper in general and that will really show at the boss fights. Imho orcs are best suited for the task, since their better start may very well result in a higher level at the boss fight.

As further preparation advice: Swap health for attack. You don't need high max health for regen fighting as long as you are able to take one blow. Also you want the green potion and the sword (or perhaps the whistle).

****BIG NOOB ALERT****

I don't see how this level is possible at all, and I've had barely any trouble with the other dungeons so far. I understand the basic concept of this level but can't seem to grasp the solution. I've attempted multiple initial setups, varying gods, and strategies. Nothing has seemed to help. Either I don't hit for enough damage or there isn't enough map left to regen off of.

How does a monk that hits for ~50 at "boss time" take out a boss with 1.3k hp (and poison) and a boss with 450 hp and 75% resist? Any help would be appreciated.

After an extremely lucky run I was finally able to beat it, funny how this seems to be harder than the vicious dungeons :? .

My tip for beating it is.... Get really lucky.

Smuggler's hold was very useful for that run, I never really used it before but I'll have to think about using it a lot more often from now on.

Ever since the black market nerf, it's the only preparation I choose from the thief den.

Anyway, thanks for that. Martyr Wraps are really cool (especially when starting with a burn salve).

Sadly, I've removed them from my locker. Really cool item, but there are so many cool items now that you just can't keep them all. I currently have venom sword, trisword, dragon shield, burning heart, vampiric sword, and the avatar's symbol lockered. Probably going to give up the vampiric sword next. Really need more locker space...

Haven't unlocked the Venom Sword yet, nor do I know where to find it - any clues?

Creeplight Ruins quest. You must get "unstoppable" (slay every monsters, don't petrify anything above level 8) while playing as an Assassin.

The best way to win that scenario is to build up piety with mystera while avoiding killing any cultists. The idea is to kill the sacrificial goat then activate mana leak to deal 100 damage to every monster. Along with assassin first strike, this should give several extra level. Use your healing potions on boss form 2, and your mana potions on boss form 3. If you conserve your resources after using mana leak you should be able to make it through without issue. Which boss form you use mana leak on is up to you. If you can't get through form 1 without expending resources, I'd advise using mana leak on form 1.

If you don't have the venom blade, use the tri-sword and hope for APHEELSIK or Tikki Tooki.

Trisword is definitely your best preparation by a longshot if you don't have venom blade. However, you'll have a lot of trouble building up to 50 piety with Tikki Tooki as a monk on this scenario, and you really need that poison as early as possible. Should be doable, but I'd go unlock venom sword first and use that.

Ah - gotta actually beat Creeplight first, then beat it again with Assassin + unstoppable - guess I'll run through twice, your advice was good for the first win. Thanks! :)
