So I beat the game With the following Setup:
Gladiator Level 22
Stunning Kuckelduster (+7)
Plate Armour (+1)
Ring of haste (+6)
Ring of Satiety (+1)
This is one of the best combos ever because of the following: The stunning knuckleduster stuns the monster, the haste ring allows me to hit more per each turn, and with the stunning I get a ton of turns. The Gladiator lets me hit higher and higher every time.
The way I got to (+7) Stunning knuckleduster is the following:
1.) I got the Weapon pre-+2 from a statue.
2.) Then what I did was, I upgraded it again, taking the risk. I managed to get it to +3.
3.) Then I used my Reforged Short Sword onto it getting it to +4. I got to stage 5 and killed myself with a potion of Flame. Before I died, I took of my cloth armor.
4.) I used the next Short Sword onto the weapon and got it to +5.
5.) I did this once again, and got it to +6. Then after this, I started to upgrade a Ring of Haste because I didn't want to risk losing the weapon to getting coins, or dying before floor 5. I played through with my current setup, easily killing everyone to the mining caves.
6.) There I found a well of transmutation. Instead of throwning in my ring of satiety, to try to get an evasion ring, or another haste ring, I just decided to play it safe and go for the (+7) Knuckleduster.
Overall this run took more strategy and luck than any other, but in the end it payed off. The most difficult enemies to kill were the scorpio's. They were hitting extremely high because my armor was pretty bad, as it was unupgraded. Once I got to them, though, they were dead. The amount of Health potions I had, stayed mostly high the entire time. I barely killed the Eyes, but managed to do it before going to the eye. Probably should have went to the eye though.
