I hopped on Wizard 101 this morning and downloaded the updates. After buying my mount and stitching my stuff to look way cooler (both of which are stories for other posts), I headed over to The Gauntlet of Woe and started doing that Dungeon with my friends. We had A Storm, A Fire, A Life, & An Ice. That, in my opinion, is an outstanding team if it can function correctly. And we functioned EXCELLENTLY!
We beat the whole tower up to the great, almighty, cheap, cheating Wraith boss. And lemme tell you firsthand, he should have been Balance because he KNEW how to adjust the rules of combat, alright.
Really, it was totally insane. With a three pip (normal ones!!!) Heck Hound, he could cause 550HP+ to be inflicted on the enemy. And this wasn’t in total; this was EACH ROUND!!! Crazy overpower. SO after his Heck Hound starts to kill you, he can take away 1/2 of your freaking health! So if you have full health, Heck Hound takes away 1/3, and then his little – 1/2 health takes you out even more. Finally, the Heck Hound kills you. He can also cast up to three spells in one round, one of which an overpowered Meteor Strike.
No, but that was the most depressing Dungeon I had ever done… depressing for me, of course. As I said, we fought up to the FINAL boss (by the way, does anybody know how many floors that tower has? I’m dying to know!!!) and on the turn we killed him, I died. So the three guys with me got credit and I was the only one who didn’t. So sad…
Be prepared, because I thought I was ready. You really can’t FULLY prepare, but try as hard as you can. This is some really hard stuff, so don’t get upset if you die like yours truly. I don’t know ONE person who has beaten it. I think I am gonna make a page called Gauntlet Survivors, so that the people who have beaten this can get the publicity and fame that they deserve.
Good luck to all with the Gauntlet of Woe, GrandMasters!
