Thanks guys!

Anyway, I've beaten the game a couple times already, but wanted
to see how a pure-defence Warrior will fare. Results were a mixed
bag:
- untill about 65 Defence, its gain was not very noticable (frequent
damage spikes anyway)
- high tier weapons (slow hitting ones) will suffice in damage even
if you skip leveling Attack, which is nice. However, you'll be missing
your hits quite a lot. This is not enraging tho and perfectly reasonable,
since no points were put in Attack.
- I actually started using those smaller potions and mushrooms again
to frequently top up my HPs to the max in case of incoming damage
spike (which can be anywhere between 15 and 30 for 2 enemies
hitting at once).
- The final fight was very hard for a melee but gone incredibly easy
with a help of little "cheating": I simply poisoned the GK and rushed
in to attack when he was very low on HP. I'd say he needs a poison
immunity to prevent such bullshit.
Like I've reported in some other thread, having insufficient HP pool
on the Player Character is sometimes scary, so improving the HP gain
when selecting HP on level up will be a welcome addition.
- After the Orcs are gone from the levels (7 and up?), the game gets
noticably easier, Orcs are killers on lower levels and their disarm
ability can easily screw even tough Warriors. Plus they've got a lot
of damage potential and can easily hit for 10-12.
- I got an impressio that trap and lava damage scales with character
level. I might be wrong, but it wasn't untill I got higher level, that
I began being hit by those for 9-10 HPs.
- Ranger and Wizard are glasscannons and should never face more
than one enemy at once unless its rats or oozes. Wizard even more
so, as Ranger has his Dog to "tank" for him. It really feels right, tho!
- As for overall difficulty, its not too high (not to the point of frustrating)
but can and will keep you on your toes and make you way more
cautious (more frequent healing up, having a teleport scroll ready).
Only thing that could use some fine-tuning is the HP per level issue
and toning down Orcs a little bit (or splitting them into say Orcs and
Black Orcs, Elite Orcs etc for different depth levels). This and poison
immunity on GK, preferably with teleport immunity.

Here's how it's happened during my last part: *Jordan is ready, the edge
of the blade is still sharp. He knows the reign of the
infamous Goblins King must stop now! He spent the large
door, and found against the King, enjoying his power,
surrounded by a score of monsters. Jordan cried, and put
several shots on the monsters. But the enemies were too
numerous and too tough. Jordan is disarmed, it has no
potions or scrolls. And that's when the Goblin King that
cut off his head. After several hours seeing that the young
warrior shall come up, the merchant and the healer makes a new tombstone in memory of Jordan.*

What the hell Sewerdweller!?

You didn't use any other Books than the basic Firebolt spell?
You know one can add other spellbooks to quickslots and then
cast different spells without wasting a turn on changing the
main equipped trinket, right?

Invest a bit into HPs. Below 40 is far from comfortable as you
can get owned in a single turn. Imagine falling thru a trapdoor
into a cluster of Orcs or alike.One false move and You're dead.

Oh wait, I didn't notice the Book of Instawin at first, carry on.

Gold at win -maybe when you win all gold should be converted to experience points? and added to levels -why else do you get gold when you complete the Goblin King quest.

I will add the ability to do a char dump at win/death screen. I'll also throw in the gold in the char dump. Good points both of them!
