Re: Re-positioning branch's entrance and make short.

Honestly, just shorten dungeon from 15 to 8 and rebalance. Most boring part of the game, IMO. No reason to cut out more thematically interesting stuff when we have 15 whole floors of generic dungeon.

Anansi are almost like a more mobile DE from my view. I see no need to compare AC to EV, all five types of def. stat have their own strengths and weaknesses.

Is that EV boost more significant than the gargoyle AC boost?
