Strategy

Recommended race: Race: Orc Orc

This dungeon hosts all the typical banes of wizards. Meat men have high health and are a pain to defeat using only magic; Golems have high magic resistance that is again quite difficult to defeat for a pure spellcaster. It is easiest to win this map relying on PISORF against the golems, which synergizes well with the Orc's base damage boosting conversion. However there is no guarantee that PISORF will spawn. Still, the Class: Wizard Orc Wizard offers a significant early increase in melee damage, which can in itself enable a hybrid or melee regen-fighting strategy.

Alternatively, a Class: Wizard Human Wizard offers better end-game damage, however cannot synergize so well with PISORF; a Class: Wizard Gnome Wizard offers a massive Mana spike due to his potions, that can plow through even Super Meat Man's health relying only on fireballs; and finally, the Class: Wizard Elf Wizard can boost his maximum Mana to really high levels, though is nevertheless probably the least reliable of the aforementioned builds, because to really shine it needs to find good items like Crystal Ball, Dragon Soul, Piercing Wand or Battlemage Ring.
