The walkthrough on Game Banshee notes that the ToD can be "extremely difficult for melee players" which I have found to be quite an understatement. After dozens of tries during two days, I cannot make it past the first few steps into the Temple.
No matter if I go right or left with my avatar, he gets poisoned to death, no matter if I use potions or not. I have tried to time the falling drops of poison, jumping and zigzagging but that does not work. I have followed the bodies and blood as the W/T says, but I still get dosed and killed. If I do get a bit into the cavern, I am zapped by bolts that immediately finish the job of killing me off.
Hard it is and I do not mind working at a game situation to find a solution, but I would like a chance to fight a bit. Any tips?
Generally, it took me a while to get the feel of D2ED, and I was enjoying playing but I feel a bit blitzkrieg-ed by the Temple's toughness.
Thanks for the help..
