Look for a source of CON 350HP will rapidly become fragile as you go past 2300'. At 1900', it'll take a long time to get stronger.

Resting takes zero time. Playing without resting takes more careful gameplay--it'd be hard to do it in the same elapsed time.

Legendary stealth makes up for all manner of sins. You can go as deep as you like and stull pick your fights.
