Walkthrough Guide on Dungelot
Paladin is a good class to play because, in the later part, most of the monsters are mostly undead. Your Crusader Strike and Holy Strike have good synergy together and will deal tons of damage as you progress. The best part of being a Paladin is you can afford to die once; you get revived after being killed. If you see it in my context, you have a Resurrection Stone in your pocket every time you start a new game.

So far, I feel that the vampire is probably the most well-balanced class in Dungelot. It can life steal, modify monster's damage and a mass attack power. Undead Sympathy, in other words, a damage modifier has a chance to reduce the target's attack power against non-undead monsters up to 40%. You will find it handy once you reach floor 50 and above. Life Stealing HP from monsters means you are constantly healing bit by bit. It may seem little but essential for survival. I like!

The brewer has the highest HP among all the classes. It has a skill which effectively converts spells scroll to health at a higher amount, and there is a small chance to gain attack power after doing so. This skill helped me clear through floors easily when you have extra spell scrolls to spare. Every time you attack, you have a 20% chance to stun an enemy for 3 turns and 6% to do extra damage based on the dwarf's health.

The assassin has been badly nerfed but still an outstanding class to play with. The assassin has no direct or indirect way of healing, but you are a cunning dodger; you dodge attacks and have the ability to hit the enemy twice. These skills are made to protect you and keep you alive longer. Dirty Punch cause damage to newly discovered enemies without hit back and stun target for 1 move. He is perfect in clearing bosses.

The Alchemist is a fairly new character in Dungelot. She is a more passive class I would say... She can poison the newly revealed enemy and has a chance to gain extra attack rates. I like one of her unique skills which can summon a minion to tank damage from her. The HP may not be much but, just imagine if she can summon at least one minion in every floor. Calculate the total amount of temporary HP she gets? It is unbelievable.

In my opinion, I will explore all the tiles along the white lines shown above. Try to take out monsters in 1 hit if possible. A good offense is the best defense. Then explore the remaining dungeon floors as much as you can before fighting, since you might find upgrades or allies. Wait to open the barrels until all of the unexplored squares around them are gone, just to prevent monster that will block you. Clearing dungeon now gives rewards like health, golds, attack rate. In most cases, except quests and arenas, killing monsters unnecessarily in the later part of the game is not a good idea, as it reliably drains your health for only a tiny achievement gold boost at the end of the current game.

There are two types of ways you can use a scroll, cast it or exchange it. Try saving up scrolls like Polymorph, First Strike, and Teleport. Let them stack up as much as possible as these three yield highest HP for trade in. Alternatively, you can save all fireball scrolls for levels 40+ and use them to take out ranged foes. Aside that, Lightning scrolls can be useful in arenas since you're hitting ~8 monsters. A fantastic general thumb of rule, wait until the next floor to exchange scrolls for health if possible, you might get more for them. If you are lucky to find artifacts, always keep as many Resurrection Stone and Ring Of Health as possible. They all the essential items for your survival.

Greedy doors mostly contain spells and rarely artifacts which make it quite easy to tell whether or not they're worth the price of admission. Remember also how much health you gain from burning a spell; that's the value of the door. If the door costs health, then, it's usually worth it, since you probably gain health by burning the spell outright. If it costs gold, it's frequently a better deal than the shop which does not necessarily say that it's a good deal. You receive spells too from challenge doors. It's pretty easy to clear it, so try your best to complete.

Lastly, towards the end when your HP is lower than 10, don't forget you can sell artifacts for money for those desperate situations. This will help you get extra gold to upgrade your character and buy single attack boost. Spell scrolls do stack. You can pick up spell scrolls even with a full inventory if there's a duplicate in there. You can exchange spell scrolls by consuming but do not eat all the spells scroll for health until you need to, they give more HP the lower down you go.


  1. Assassin got nerfed. Stun is now useless, since it only gives first strike (enemy can attack back if it lives)

  2. PERFECT! :) This is all I need. Vampire is overpowered, trust me people!
