Game play hints:
- Look at getting Teleportation Runes and the Stave of Dragons to help in outrunning the Dead King. Even in normal mode, completing the amount of quests and bosses required in marathon is possible!
- You can change your map up a bit and try to make the Dead King work hard for his cities.
- Also, you can get some Luck Stones ready at your disposal to re-roll those terrible situations where he rolls the closest city for his target. That very first target can make your game a bit more difficult.
- If you don't meet the requirements by the time you fight the Dead King, you still loose even if you defeat him.
