the extravagance sound effect is the single most annoying thing in the game (plus it means you should make a lot more careful calculations about routes around the level

And I thought I was the only one annoyed by this. ;)

I will change the extravagance to only work for new rooms, not going back through the ones you already discovered.

If one were to do a bard

I thought about something like a lute as well, maybe casting a random spell. Either confusion/peace/hypnotize on enemies or a random buff (speed, crit chance, etc.) on allies for 1 battle. BTW, hypnotize is a new effect I plan to add which would make some of the enemies your allies (does not work on bosses) until the room is clear - similar to confusion, but they never target players.

The first beta build for the Demon update is ready, version 5.01. You can try it out if you go to BETAS tab in Steam client game's properties and type the password: minimum89012

I made instructions with screenshots here: https://bigosaur.com/blog/153-son-of-a-witch-beta

It's for the old Steam client, but the naming is similar for the new Steam client as well.

Let me know if you find any bugs. I plan to test it extensively myself as well in the next few weeks.

I think the hourglass and Faustian ring are not designed very well.
Maybe add some negative effect or decrease the value appropriately.
HP-40,Skills+100-120 or HP-20,Skills+80
Speed-2,Skills+100-120 or Speed-1,skills+80

Cooper's Ring+Evergreen Oak Branch=Infinite loop.
(Money is Power+Claw Hammer、Apprentizer、Mana Canteen、Philyra's Necklace+Ironclad)

Those two started with "double damage" instead of "skills +100" so it felt like a nerf to me, but you are right. Very OP items. Maybe I should just lower it to "skills +50" and see if that is underwhelming.

Ohhh, I forgot to disable getting mana/gold/shields from those "spawned" barrels. Will fix right now.
