Argh!! Why is the Dark Guardian Room so much harder to survive today?

    Today I actually died in there! Poison and some damage. Almost died 2 other times today. The green poison balls (or whatever) are moving toward the middle of the room! Is it a special on Weekends or will it become worse? Until today I have never even gotten a scratch in there with my two mystic mages and my necro mage. But today, poor Loup Garou (necro) was the victim. He blames me of course, don't they all. Anyone have an answer? I was happily eating orange petals too. What is this pixellian world coming to?

    probably an adjustment because they were being farmed too easily.

    25(room max I think) dark guardians can ruin anyone's day if there is tiny big of lag or a blood oath.

    So normal players yet once again are to suffer because of scripters ?

    Wouldn't it JUST be way better to rid (finally) the game from scripters and leave regular players alone ?

    Who said anything about scripting? If I wish to farm the Dark Guardian does that automatically make me a scripter? The point was simply that the dude was just too easy given how the game has changed.

    Didn't notice a single change at it tonight.
    Only died when they all decided to dump pain spike on me, which is pretty normal. Being hit with 8 to 10 of those at the same time tends to hurt. :p

    Are you guys doing the spawn with a sampire or something else? Cause when I farm that room I never even take damage its just select attack instant dead.

    I do it with my mage or my myst/weaver t-hunter. Doing it with a bushido/paladin would be too easy and not as fun.
    Also, casting EVs increase the amount of spawn there. Can't do that with my dexxers.

    It should. The room spawns 2 dark guardians for every player, pet or summon in the room.

    Mage Necro Weaver in Wraith Form casting nether cyclone with dual mana spell\form effects, The guardians hit literally don't have enough mana to dump on you.

    Run 5 fey summons once you get used to it. Stack them on the center pentagram tile then trigger the spawn a little bit away with spell precasted. Next run into the center pentagram tile after most guardians targeted the summons, then just clean up.

    Note: works really great when no one else is around, gets messy if someone does not do the same thing.
