I just beat the game after 102 often frustrating runs. How did you do on your first time through?
I finished my first playthrough at approximately 65. I think I topped 100 going through a new game plus; it also doesn't help that I simply cannot play anything except a Hokage, Assassin, Paladin, or Barbarian. Being able to re-roll your 3 children was the best upgrade I ever purchased in that game!
74 after about 12 hours. Feel like the last 10 were for the final encounter. Another 10 towards the 3rd boss, who was a real bastard. But I rolled from a victory over the 3rd boss to a victory over the 4th with the same hero, it was fucking epic!
He died shortly thereafter. :(
Finally did it. Clocked in at like 353 or something. That would have been about seriously 30-40 shorter if the last boss hadn't fucked me up so much. Then I finally got a tip to try Archmage with dagger. It works really well on both bosses. Although you need not get hit cause the archmage goes down like a lightweight. The pros are you can literally sit there and spam daggers and win as long as the boss stays stunlocked from the daggers.
