Re: Lack of resistances preventing access to extended?

Resistances are very much needed for extended. I would like to see anyone show a game where they managed to beat hells or even Zot with just one level of resistances or none.

You certainly can't fight your way through it. You would have to cheese it somehow.

Re: Nerf shoals

Shoals just require a different set of 'resistances' than Snake and Swamp. If you go in with A skilled shield, Repel or Deflect missiles, or invis you should be able to handle it.

Just think about it the same way you would do Snake if you didn't have any rPois.
