I had a +11 hunting sling of venom which alone should have carried me further in the game. As usual, I went for maximal sacrifi...

I assume the idea is to make phantoms actually matter, so that you can't just drag them upstairs and park them on a new level.

If they are too deadly now, some rebalancing might happen. (Personally, I can't comment on that, as I play the latest released version (26.1).)
