Under rating threshold (show) Tip: When you walk into an unexplored space, your characters will recover Health and Power (if they indeed have regen because of their equipment). Thus, if you have a choice between a battle, and exploring, do the battle first. Then, while exploring, you can regain Health and Power for your next battle. Plus to keep alive!

Under rating threshold (show) Damage reflection is just wonderful. Got a warrior with 200% reflection, mage with 73%, cleric with 147% and a conjurer with 138%. And since everything in hardcore mode is tougher... Well it's a great deal easier to kill things when they kill themselves.

Under rating threshold (show) So, for survival mode. Your buff and debuff effects don't wear off at the end of each fight. You can survive pretty much indefinatly by taking advatage of this. First three classes that stuck out are ranger for the health regen. Conjurer next for summoning wargolems and ageis for increacing survivability, important to have revive too. And here's that fun one, mage for front center to take all the hits, arcane armor last till they die, and you can cast flickering flames on the whole party for complete 100% damage reflect. Last I went with the rouge for theif's luck, which improved ensorcelled blade and rain of arrows to near 100% accuracy. Health regen is the best thing ever equip to recover a third or their health each round and you won't need to heal. Conjuror needs extra health, heath recovery, and stun resist so that you don't lose your ability to revive. Set your front to wargolem, mage, wargolem and revive them/replace them as they fall.

Under rating threshold (show) @Firechanter I tried his build on Extreme and got horrendously owned, true 3 rangers is a mighty damage output but your single-Cleric means that you are going to have to continually spam heal on your Cleric to keep up the front line, however if say the enemy has a high damage AoE ability:ex. Troll Spear Lunge injuring several of your units to a near critical health forcing you to trade one Ranger for a Cleric (even Heal All won't provide enough and if you tech into it the Cleric becomes too squishy, and Ranger HoT is not as enough in the gorier battles) and so on until your backline becomes a farce. I highly suggest for Extreme that you follow the true and tried way of 2 meat-shield Clerics and 2 ranged high-damage output classes, also be prepared to have party members die ALOT so if you find an instant escape item keep it despite better loot and put it on your high-damage units so you can at least preserve units or prevent loss.

Under rating threshold (show) The ability to heal out of combat with a cleric would make a lot of since and would be a very welcome addition to the game in my mind. it's kinda annoying to have to rely on shrines and potions when you dont heal in combat.

Under rating threshold (show) Note : The Clean Slate item from the Emporium will actually wipe off your *PERMANENT* stats gained from Potions obtained from the Blue Shrine 'TEMPORARY BECOMES PERMANENT' Tested it a few times personally. I'm not sure if that's the way it is supposed to be but I just wanted to inform you guys. And one add-on for X0XSarahX0X's Shrine Guide, A GIFT OF MAGIC has another type of orb, Orb of Replenishment 'Replenishment +20%'

Under rating threshold (show) Indeed, 3 Rangers and 1 Cleric make a great party. All the other classes are largely redundant. Just give your Rangers the Piercing Shot and Pin skills, always prioritize enemy spellcasters (a.k.a. "Geek The Mage First") and you will have no difficulties with this game.

Under rating threshold (show) Tips for the hard survival badge: The abilities that classes get that boost everyone help a lot. I personally went 1 conjurer, 1 cleric, 1 fighter, 1 mage, for defense boost, heals and poison resist, damage bonus, and reflection. Focus gear and stat points towards offense: it might be possible to win with a defense based group, but it's a lot easier to just kill everything within a few rounds. Place the cleric in middle with a shield to soak up damage, fighter to either side, and mage and conjurer in back. Use constant wargolems and manasprites, and besides that save conjurers power for revives. Cleric should be healing, anointing fighter, or skipping turns for power regen. Mage and fighter should be killing. Hope this helps!

Under rating threshold (show) For the "Doomed Heroes Badge". I had quite a few false starts, and did not find tips in the comments section wholly useful, so here are my recommendations (abridged for 1000 character limit): Warrior - Front center. Stat=End. Gear=HP Reg, AC. Weapon with strong status effects. Skills=Ins, Adr, SW. Consider Cleave. Dump into +AC Cleric – Rear center. Stat=Int. Gear=Pow Reg, Res Stun, End. Skills=Heal, Anoint, Pur, Rev. Consider Holy Light. Get at least 30 Pow Reg. +5 Benediction mandatory to cure blindness. Ranger – Rear side. Stat=Dex. Gear=Acc, Dex/Dmg, 18+ total Pow Reg. Hard hitting Xbow. Skills=HoA, NB, Pin, Swift. Dump into Creature Lore. Conjurer – Rear side. Stat=Int. Gear=Assorted. Skills=WG, Ban, EA, CS, RE. Dump into Aug Health. General Strategy: Anoint + HoA. Mop up. Leave an enemy each round to recover before next fight. Watch out for armor piercing enemies (Dwarf Xbow, Undead Wraith). You’ll get the hang of it.

Under rating threshold (show) I think the point of the pandoras box is to challenge those whose team is nigh on unstoppable. Although it would be nice to be rewarded for ones efforts... I think you should get a purple for every leader and a legendary for every legendary creature in the fight. That would make it very worthwhile.
