Under rating threshold (show) + if you think the first two badges need to be for "beginner" difficulty AND HIGHER. It's crazy to not get the badges because you're playing on a harder difficulty!

Under rating threshold (show) This is an old-school game. This game was clearly made with love for old turn-based games in mind. If you enjoy Disciples, or the Bard's Tale, Wizardry or Might and Magic, or any game where you have a party of NPCs with you, you will enjoy this. To answer Livold, who asked about scoring points: that's what the Rating button in-game is for. It's not for a New Grounds or Kongregate rating, it tells you the score rating of your party. It tells you stuff you might not realize, like that using Shrines subtracts from your score.

Under rating threshold (show) I've read some comments and most of them are complaints about spending a lot of time equiping your characters, but for me it's the part of fun, I mean I find a lot of stuff and I enjoy the moment when I realise that some item that I found/achieved in hard battle is better then the one I have. The only thing that could be helpful is ability to switch between the characters with 1,2,3,4 buttons in inventory screen.

Under rating threshold (show) I'm level 24 on this site, and this was the first game I played. Just now I finally got my very first impossible badge after two years on this website (don't play during summer.) I used a team of all cerlics. It is actually very easy and it wasn't very long for me (a few hours) to get to level 50 with virtually no trouble, using advice I got from here. First cerlic was all str, second was end, third was str, and fourth was int. Throw random stuff on your first Cerlic, then armor and health regain on your second, speed and endurance on your third and power regain on your fourth. (Also, place the fourth in the middle back.) After the initil hardships of the first few floors your team becomes amazing, you'll see how. Do EVERYTHING for the first 20 levels. Then only fight bosses and avoid fights until level 30. After level 30 you can easily avoid battles and get to level 50 easily. I hope this helps guys :)

Under rating threshold (show) Just wanted to throw in my support for the bumped comment about using four clerics. Couple things Ericzander didn't mention in his bumped comment: since all characters have the option to heal, the team's flexibility increases greatly. Also, since clerics can wear heavy armor and use maces, this healing flexibility comes with the added benefit of not sacrificing too much attacking or defending ability. The only thing you might consider changing is getting rid of the cleric you use for "equip dumping" and replace it with another class; I would go with ranger or rogue.

Lich: "But sir, we're your best fighters, shouldn't we be deployed on the frontline?" Corruptor: "Frontline? What nonsense are you spewing? All our soldiers will be hiding in unorganized groups distributed randomly throughout this level. All except for you, Gargoyle, you alone will be defending the passage to my chamber." Gargoyle: "Er... So I assume you'll back me up if the fight begins to go ill?" Corruptor: "No, I will in fact not be confronting them until all of our forces get completely massacred." Lich: "What?! Sir, I don't see the strategic value in-" Corruptor: "We don't have time to discuss this, they'll be here any minute! Now go, and don't forget to unlock all our armories and treasure chests on your way out. They might need some new weapons after dirtying them hacking through all of you."

Under rating threshold (show) How to save and load games in hardcore mode: Find files named party1.sol party2.sol party3.sol. Those are saves for your 3 party slots. Location of those files will be different on your system but it will be something like C: \ Users \ YourUserName \ AppData \ Roaming \ Macromedia \ Flash Player \ #SharedObjects \ 7BWSTQAA4 \ chat.kongregate.com \ gamez \ 0000 \ 5407 \ live \ monstersdenk.swf \ party1.sol Copy the saves into some safe place when you want to save, and copy the save file back when you want to load the game. When your party dies the game just deletes its save file. Copy it back and you'll be able to load game. Also, this way you can have more than 3 saves, just store the extra files elsewhere and move them back when needed.

Under rating threshold (show) I love all the different strategies for the impossible badge. All of 'em seem to work pretty great. I'll throw mine in the ring anyway: four rogues! If you keep your quickness above 61, you're almost faster than anybody. So in easy fights, with three enemies or less, just smack 'em around with Poison and Create Opening. In battles with four or more bad guys, have everyone hide on the first turn, and then, next turn, everybody dies! Simple and oddly satisfying.

Under rating threshold (show) Easy way to beat the Corrupter: Just get a Rogue with Sap Strengh, use that right away, before he can make shadow guys, and keep using that to keep his power level down, and it'll just be him, he can't make shadows without power. Hope this helps!

Under rating threshold (show) Four clerics works well, but there's another way. Mage and rogue. Have the mage use the cosmic prison, then have the rogue use execute. Of course, you'll still want a cleric to serve as a meatshield / healer.

Under rating threshold (show) Another skill set with 4 clerics: give 3 of them more than 70 speed and max int (in the back) with litany of pain, and smite, and give the front guy be the fastest, with high armor, END, and health regen. Then give the meatshield in front anoint, and shield of faith. other stuff matters very little. Now on every battle just anoint your most powerful Litany dude and use litany three times. on bosses do the same, but after that turn use shield of faith and then smite away. once you get demonslayer stuff, you can give it to the dude in front to refresh him and make him EVEN MORE POWERFUL. VICTORY! ^.^

Under rating threshold (show) To those who aren't getting the impossible badge, I tried most of the combinations suggested here, and the one I was successful with was: 3 rogues and 1 cleric, keeping the 3 rogues at the front and the cleric at the middle back. Equip your rogues with health regeneration and your cleric with power regeneration. Give the rogues 2 points str and 1 point end every level, and your cleric all int. The best way to play is to make all your rogues use the 'create opening attack' every time, and keep your cleric's mana reserved for healing and revive. Btw, don't equip your cleric with heavy equip just cause he can, but always look for the ones with best power reg! Worked for me, hope it helps!

Under rating threshold (show) I believe the equipment design is quite good, this is just an opinion mind you. It takes a while at the start but after a while it becomes more varied and it's a lot easier. Besides when you first get the equpment it does tell you what it's got and whether it's better or worse than the things already equipped by your team.

Under rating threshold (show) I know everyone likes the 4-cleric strategy, but I'd recommend at least considering a 3-cleric 1-rogue tactic. It's similar to Ericzander's team setup, but with one of the STR clerics swapped out for a rogue. Not only does this give you a bit more variety in moves (I favor Thief's Luck, Poison, Pierce Defenses, and Create Opening for the most part), but Sap Strength makes the Corruptor rather pathetic if you can hit him with it before he uses Dark Mirror.
