Re: Spoilers

Regarding the Painbringer, I found it entirely satisfying to watch those bloody Assassins run away rapidly. I had to chase down and corner a few of them, then easily dispatch them in order to get this "buwahahahaha" moment to subside... :twisted:

Re: Observations on the new version

I think someone already mentioned this, but in version 1.3 the HP increments are much smaller than they were in 1.2. My current character is Level 15, and has an HP of 91, with EXP around 75000. As I recall, when my character was Level 14, it had an HP of 89, so it only went up by 2 when I leveled u...

Re: Video

I've seen the starting video, the stairs, getting the sword, and escaping. Are there other videos? I'd like to disable them (stairs video slows me down) but I don't want to miss any. ... You do realize that the moment the stairs video starts, a simple tap on the screen will skip it entirely, right?

Re: Players' Tips and Comments

... I wish I had your patience in the shield cache idea. I know it sounds dreadfully boring, but I've found, intriguingly, that it isn't. Of course, I am also the methodical type, and like to clear out an entire floor before descending, except for an occasional foray into the depths to see what's w...

Re: No sword on the sword level

Incidentally, since I upgraded to 1.3, I've found other floors that have "regions" without any tunnels to connect them. I never discovered that in 1.2, until I got to level 20 (the Firedrake's den). The only way to get to these "untunneled" regions is to access them from another level via a staircas...

Re: Players' Tips and Comments

Have you ever tried creating a "shield cache"? Having just completed the game on version 1.2, I upgraded to 1.3 and started a new character. One thing I had noticed the first time around was that there were a lot of shields available in the upper floors of the dungeon, mostly of the wood and leather...

Re: Players' Tips and Comments

Actually, I'm curious how those Invisibility spells work. I could swear the beasties still follow me. Can they still spot you from a certain distance? They won't actually follow you, they just get sort of frenetic, but sometimes they'll blunder into you. I also noticed that the Fyredrakes will some...

Re: Wands

The tutorial answers the question about how to use wands, but not about orbs, eyes, etc. that may be in your inventory. My understanding is that if something is in your inventory and does absolutely nothing when you select it, this means it is permanently active. Regarding what exactly some of these...

Re: No sword on the sword level

Ah, you are absolutely right...I found it by going back to floor 19 and taking a different staircase down. Thanks!

Re: Spoilers

This is something that might be obvious to some, but I found out the hard way: Casting a Shield spell and then standing still to vanquish all comers does NOT always work. After 25 or 30 centipedes, my Shield spell wore off automatically and I had to cast another one. Furthermore, a Shield spell will...
