Back on older versions Gnome Mage was the most powerful combination in the game, if you could survive the first few CLs. In fact in some ways it felt (to me) that the game was tilted towards making...

After a mere few seconds of thought, my instant (and probably incorrect) reaction to this is: Do we care about under depth monsters at all? They don't necessarily make the level easier. What I am...
