I am Lance Armstrong. 5th life. 267 hp on lv 7 (Human, 4x Fighter, 3x Paladin)
I use Amrath hp pots.
I use Silver flame pots which heal me for 350.
I killed 20 of the symbols in the spike-airwave-corridor of partycrashers.
The game rewarded me with 3 deaths and the 3rd time mockingly put the remaining symbols 3 metres above my head.
I know that casters can shoot the symbol before even entering that hellhole.
But ... what can a honest hero do ?
