Location: East of the sun, west of the moon
I think I beat it, I did the doom quest and then reported back to the sun paladin, is there anything else I need to do after that?

Stuff I did in the far east:
- unremarkable cave
- Rak'shor pride
- bug place that has orcs too (and sun paladins at the bottom)
- spider place
I think that is it, is it?

Mt doom was hard, there are a few essential things you need there, that I should have brought with me, but I didnt have much of (still barely managed)

Normal difficulty level.

stat wise, it might have been better to remove str and wil equipment and max them out rather than putting them in con, but I guess it is fine. I also still had a talent category point I never used... probably would have put it in either combat techniques or survival.

This char could do over 70 damage to people that attacked him, even more if they miss and he ripostes.

some comments/thoughts:
- Rush doesnt always work (no errors though in stdout) It just gets used, but no move and attack. Does use energy though.
- there is a huge jump in difficulty from early quests to tol falas (negated if you enter tol falas early, which I did not :P), however, the game drops in difficulty after that, only to have...
- a huge jump in difficulty when you enter Rak'shor's pride. (primarily because it was so open, but that is really how the region is, and also eternal bone golems are nasty :P)

probably more, but I need to sit back and think some.

Why would you say it becomes easier after tol falas ?
(Also it's kinda wanted, tol falas si meant to be a very dangerous and important place, but it should not become TOO easy afterwards either)

ok, really only the master presented a challenge for my guy. He was the only real reason I would rate tol falas as difficult :P (I did have a 2.1 hp regen ring if you didnt notice, that helped a lot)

as far as bosses go, tol falas is probably the hardest one atm, followed by... um.... hmmm.... (following list is for this character only, list depends on tactics used)

Tol Falas
Carn Dum
Mt Doom
Ambush
Sandworm Lair
(all the others) what can I say, neither the necromancer in Rok'Shar nor the destroyer got off any attacks against me, I just waded through them, otherwise they might have been harder. (ok, really Uruk didnt get off any attacks either against me too, but I put him up there because of his hp and stuff, if you dont come prepared he would be difficult.

I am not sure it became too easy afterwards, just that tol falas and on was when monsters could actually start damaging me in combat (well, not including pre lvl 4). I still think damage and armor needs to be honed, as I had high armor, but was still taking reasonable damage, not sure what it would look like if I had less armor.

I can't discuss the hardness of the Tol Falas boss since I got stupid most of the way down and died. However, I as a not particularly spoiled player found the hardness of the rest of the dungeon very appropriate. It was quite dangerous and I had to be very alert, but my prepared wizard was fully capable of doing it. I did notice though that this was the first place in a while where I couldn't one-shot-kill almost anything.
