    I've been trying to get a feel for what's been killing people the most in CoC recently. If you die in the Caverns, writing down how it happened here could be useful if rebalancing of the caverns happens again, and at the very least provide some interesting reading material and warnings for other spelunkers. Map number, party composition, type of map, and enemy assortment are all useful.

    Killed by those death thing. He keept negative energy being on himself, doomed all my characters.
    3 warriors.
    Cleaned all the area, he was invincible.

    Died to Greenfang, I attribute cause of death to not prioritizing him due to the only experience I had against him being from two years ago, and not noticing that he drew 6 cards of very strong attacks per turn. I'm also going to blame death on Omnifis only having 25 HP as opposed to the 27 a Human CoC Priest normally has, or the 29 (I think) a legendary Human CoC priest should have.

    Died wave 1 to Death Elementals. :p Almost had them, but they draw that NEB so often and so reliably that we just couldn't break through, and them doom slowly wiped us out.

    @Wandere the only purge we had was Purging Strike....

    Started round with two caveman wizards and the piercing stab human warrior on an open map, versus a large amount of strong ranged enemies and burning skeletons. One wizard died the first round, the second died shortly after, and the human warrior did not fare well after they were gone.

    Open map, level 8.
    Sentry bots and those little metal chests that shoot lasers.
    Nowhere to hide.
  8. Wandere

    Wandere Lizardman Priest

    Quite a strong allied team - two good priests and a mage against trees, imps, lizards and men on a slightly constrained but fair VS map, but we just didn't escape being surrounded fast enough and got slaughtered. :confused:

    Trolls and Invisible Spiders. Not even Xander, the bludgeon dwarrior, AND the elf vamp (a very good team) could stop them.

    Decided to try CoC again, since I have club membership this month....

    Map 5, two Troll Warriors who never stopped regenerating. I didn't have any Purge or fire damage, and only drew two cards with >5 damage (Sorcerous Blast and Devastating Blow).

    They kept me stunned.

    Versus Oakenshade with his assistant of Lich, two Gnarled Maples, and a copper Golem. Turn one, every enemy was redecorated on top of my party. Though it was a good party to fight him with (Strong bludgeon dwarrior and semidecent support) and I was able to start attacking him the first turn, I still lost with him having 18 HP left and the other beaters undamaged.

    Why do we have Death Elementals in CoC? I had 2 wizards and a warrior against 2 Death Elementals and some other enemies (made irrelevant by the presence of Death Elementals) on a fairly small/open map, and it only took them a couple of rounds to get Doom attached to all of my characters.

    Another death by death elemental, despite having a cleric. I had to choose between removing doom and removing NEB. I choose doom. It was a mistake.

    This list is by no means complete:

    General combinatons:

    Triple priest party
    Double priest party with generally weak thrid character
    Two or more elf party in closed area
    Elf wiz vs ranged enemies
    Flying enemies that prevent you from using good positioning/ reaching the annoying ranged enemies

    General enemies:

    Enemies with tonnes of move cards such as archer / assault dog / troll
    Enemies with Op traits which they draw consistently such as new recruits / rad spider / troll
    Enemies with Op attacks which cause two-for-one such as troll

    I died to a mummy when I got only one elf wizard who had attacks that could get through only bones. She died to some golems. :(
