I think I did try to get magic hp as high as possible. I can't remember specifically.

Gotten the lich a few times as the warrior. Definitely using high vamp with either high attack speed or counter as it allows a lot more HP harvesting against most enemies. Except skellies...ooph a few of them plus a high evasion baddie that my guy insists on attacking first can really eat up health.

Level II is brutal though, not having much luck with it so far.

My biggest complaint is the lack of in-loop save. Something about that game hypercharges my laptop fans even when it is closed and if i run out of play time i dislike leaving it running mid loop. I get the need to prevent save spamming but it would be nice to be able to shut the game down without losing progress (well, guess i could just retreat with 60% of my ill gotten gains).

Whoever wrote this is a big fan of the architect from the Matrix i think :)

^this is a different way of approaching my loop is too long complaint, but I htink it stems from the same thing.

I've altered my strategy with Oblivion cards. I used to use them to obliterate Goblin and Bandit camps.

Now I save them so I can obliterate Lich Palaces, making the boss weaker.

That bonus ability to get a whole hand of oblivion cards is really nice.

What ever you do, do NOT put a ruin on the first space next to your campfire. Those worm bastards absolutely will help the boss!

This was probably obvious to everyone else, but I discovered that you can dismantle artifacts to gain resources. I have many more artifacts than I have spaces to use them, so it was an easy choice.

I find myself falling victim to assumptions based on previous games instead of just seeing how this game unfolds.

Took me a while to realize how excess inventory is scrapped, i still don't know if scrapped cards give you something , and i have an irrational fear of giving up weapon damage for magic damage because i don't know what effect the latter has.

Cards that get burned away due to piling up do give you something. Memory fragments, I think. I think Gary said that magic damage ignores defense.

Yes! The site is back up! I've been waiting 2 days to boast that I beat the 2nd boss. I had the Necromancer, and actually won on my very first encounter with them.

The site was never down?

I just picked this up. God help me I don’t need a roguelite right now, but the more I heard about this game, the more interested I became. I think the news that mid-loop saves are coming soon clinched it for me. Maybe I’ll start it tonight.

It did go down, and I suspect it was a lot longer for me than for others.

The perk that heals a skeleton when it kills something is a must pick.

Also probably obvious but you can use an Oblivion card on a Peak to make it go away then immediately add another rock to form it again to get the resource bonus multiple times.

@Gary: what website do you use for getting info? A few wikis I’ve looked at are pretty bare on game info.
