 Don't use the invisibility potion! 




I didn't even notice the potion until I was done, but it's the first challenge I've found. I predict someone will solve it today.

Beh. If I had bothered to get this far I could probably do it.

You'd definitely want to kill the brain first, and then you've got a not-easy but manageable small horde.

I never thought of killing the brain first. Silly me.

I don't think it's really feasible to kill the brain before the horde -- you'd have to turn your back.

You can't actually enter from the South. You go there after finishing this room.

this is probably how you manage to complete it without the potion?

Is it possible to do this without using the invisibility potion? If not, then this negates the challenge completely.

I just rebuilt this room in editor, not having access to it in-game. It's possible and I doubt that monster movement order will matter much in a room like this to make it impossible in the real version.

The alcove at the top makes it easier, but isn't necessary.

You can't make it to the brain without getting surrounded by monsters. As a matter of fact, I think that it's a lot easier to kill the brain last rather than not killing it last. You can leave one goblin alive before killing the brain, but that's about it. Otherwise you'll have to kill everything else first.

Besides, the spiders would get to you first.
