    I decided to do a restart since I am completely disappointed by my cleric of Hieronious(sp?). Pelor rules when it comes to clerics. I wanted to be able to craft lawful and holy weapons, but the loss of turn undead power was not worth it imo.

    I prefer using the ol' Sorcerer's Turn Undead skill instead.

    Their Turn Undead is called Fireball if you didn't know.

    How's that working for you in the arena? My wizard throws a fireball at the eastern group, while my cleric destroys most of the southern group.

    *Arena of Heroes spoilers ahead! You can never be too safe!*
    Its considerably more difficult since the undead wizards like to cast Stinking Cloud on my Arcane duo (Sorcerer and Wizard specialized in Conjuration) which is enough to disable them for most of the battle. One Fireball from my Sorc is enough to nuke a group of them. If it weren't for Stinking Cloud my Conjurer would otherwise conjure up a whole army's worth of monsters to keep those wizards at bay.

    Possible spoiler.
    For the stinking cloud, try to take the lesser globe potion from mother. Have one of the fighters take it. Keep your spell casters close to him. Two potions, one for each fighter type or at least a second non-spellcaster, works even better.
    By the way. Lesser Globe of Invulnerability doesn't work right. It should not prevent the caster from casting spells less than or equal to spell level three. It should only prevent the caster from being subject to the ill effects of such spells.

    *Oh wow! More spoilers!*
    I always kill Mother... she's Evil. I have a Paladin in my crew. There's only one destiny for evil characters.

    I could always have my Wizard cast the spell I guess. I usually forbid him from using Evocation and Necromancy. No point reinforcing what one other character focuses in >_>
    *End spoilers*

    Though it doesn't matter since I did win through the battle in the end. It was pretty time consuming, to say the least.

    I usually split my folks up right from the start so the cloud of stink only gets one, or maybe two at the most.

    A cleric with a cloak of charisma turning undead does make a difference too.

    With 7.5 imminent, I'd like to remind the lagstop stewards that you're still on the job! :transform

    Well I can say that the Fire Temple (lvl 2), and temple level 4 worked well in 7.4 no Lag or Jerkstop on either, I fought the fire temple battle about 5 times with two different parties so I feel confident that it is good to go. I died fighting the temple on level 4 just this morning, but I experienced no lag or jerkstop all was smooth..I can't comment on the nodes or WOTGS since I never made it that far during my run threws in 7.4. But only issue I had within the levels of the Temple proper during both my deeper runs was one time I was in a battle on the 1st temple level and during the battle I "Teleported" to one of the stair entrances and was out of combat mode.
    Went back to the same spot and fought the battle with no problems so I didn't report it though maybe I should of.
    Since my party died this morning kinda of waiting till sunday to start fresh with a new one in 7.5

    How go the playthroughs with 7.5.0, stewards? I've seen Hugh's report in the Modding forum but that's about it.

    Thanks. This is for lag and jerkstop specifically though. Feel free to share on that - whether you see it or not. :)

    I'm not seeing any lag or jerk stop, but I have gotten the freeze up when exiting the WW more than a few times.

    I have re-activated the module and will continue on tonight, I hope to get to the big battles and report.

    My only problem is I still suffer from rolling up a new party half way through as a new idea hits me. ;)
