Walkthrough Guide on Hack Slash Crawl
Elemental resistance is critical to success. Forget about poison; it's not a factor. Keep in mind that ice resistance is most important resistance for survival but still pick the highest elemental protection you can and always keep fire, ice and electric maxed out. This is more important than the armor in total. Build strength only to around 550 when you can one-hit anything. After that build up stamina to 200+, and you'll be indestructible as long as you keep elemental protection. Spells are useless in the later part of the game except heal/sanctify which can get you through gang attacks. Use the numbers on your keyboard, not the mouse to fire your spells.
You will learn that the most important magic you can have is 'critical hit.' Many weapon drops have this feature, and it the only feature that you need to one-hit at higher levels. There is only one class that has the Critical Hit spell as default, and that is Reaper. I strongly recommend Reaper as the class you chose. Having this skill as a default ability means that you can always equip the highest damage weapon. You do not have to hang onto any specific piece of equipment, but merely evaluate weapon drops on highest damage capability. Critical damage skill is based on weapon damage, not character strength.
Golem Explorer: It gives +30 elemental resistance!
Vampire Reaper: It has life steal and critical strike.
Human Fighter: Well-balanced stats.
Werewolf Lightwielder: High regeneration and overpowered heal.
