I tend to think of the place as a reality check. ?) Am I ready to go on to DS with this character ..... a) Seems easy, then yes ..... b) Not so easy, maybe I need to redo deck, think over how I play, etc.
I went thru last night with my lvl 42 death, and as normal in this type of battle setup, you need to exit the first two battles with high/full health.
Why do I refer to DS...there are many dungeons that you can not teleport in and out of, so even in group play, you need to watch not only your health, but everyones, or they get death-ported and can't come back, leaving you a man down, and in several, the levels are 6+, so it is an issue.
In the village of sorrow, the candles are inside a gauntlet, like golem tower. once you leave it resets. it took me i think ten or eleven times until i finished. but have all potions full only use them when you have 450 or less. hope this helps!!!!!!!!!!!!
