This version adds a few new features: Elite enemies, elite items, and 3 new classes. It is also includes a series of bug fixes and balance changes.

Posted by porousnapkin on Aug 1st, 2012

This patch focuses primarily on 2 new features: Elite enemies and elite items.

Elite enemies are rare enemy spawns that are substantially more powerful than normal units. They're each a super powered version of a normal enemy, each with their own pumped up special ability. If you can kill one, they will drop an elite item.

Elite items are the best items in the game: Stronger weapons, overpowered potions and wands, and a scroll that basically levels you up! It's worth taking elite enemies on for the items they drop. If you don't like the elite item you got, use it in alchemy and you're guaranteed to get another elite.

New classes

There are also 3 new classes. The Paladin is a defensive class who benefits from high intelligence and strength. The duelist is a melee class who benefits from high intelligence. The Scholar gains health whenever they read a scroll.

There's also a mac downloadable version for the first time.

huh, i thought i posted a comment here but i think it disapeared.
i love the new update, except that the game is now too easy, and the fire trap wand is bugged. keep up the good work, and make sure to nerf the witch :)

You posted some great feedback on the Windows downloadable that convinced me to do a hot fix (for the fire trap wand and a minor witch nerf). You might not be able to see those comments since the hot fix is currently awaiting authorization and I have no idea what that looks like to people who are not me.

Hi porousnapkin and many thanks for Through!
I did not want to post too long a comment so I have just created a "Bug reports" thread in the "Features, suggestions and bug reports" section of the forum.
