Always auto-failing successful Pacifist challenges
hi. I build the same character three times now and he is always failing (successful) Pacifist challenges in Neverending dungeon (Roguelike nightmare). He is failing the challenge on changing to next area. The build is as follows: Skeleton/Adventurer with Solipsism, Thoughtform, Beyond the Flesh (Gem equipped), Poison, Bleeding, Demonip Pact. I'm using a mindstar with a bound demon and a shield.

Of course I always deactivate Thoughtform and unequip any (damage when hit) itmes on the challenge. I have the feeling that Solipsism might somehow bug it, but I can't say for sure. It's very annoying, because I sure as hell don't want to miss out on those challenges.

I had a few auto-fails before on challenges that I did successfully, usually it happens on Exterminator challenges. Now Pacifist became undoable on this build :-(

Just had a thought: Could it be that de-activating Thoughtform counts as having your minion (creature) killed??? Will build the same one without Thoughtform... :-/

There are probably some problems with how Pacifist is handled. One of my builds had Temporal Hounds and the dogs killed everything on the level without Pacifist failing. Then I moved to the next level and whoo, Pacifist failed.

Seeing that the Neverending Dungeon has been completely redone in the big update, I guess there are still things that need to be patched up. Take the Cornac, he doesn't get his bonus talents at lvl 10, 20 and 30. Or the shop stations that you can choose to send back to the Kruk outpost - that doesn't make much sense.

AFAIK Cornacs not getting their free points was fixed in 1.5.2.

Good to know they fixed the Cornac. So, I just tried the same build without Thougtform and the Pacifist challenges now work fine. I figure that deactivating Thoughtform counts as a kill, since the creature disappears.

I think I figured out, why I fail Exterminator challenges: When binding a Demon seed with Demonic Pact, it seemingly doesn't count as killing the enemy, rendering the challenges meaningless with a demonic character. Then again, demon seeds seem a lot weaker than Physics, which I think should be chosen anytime over demonic pact - especially since you can combine physics with a psi carried weapon.

You can put demon seeds into a psionic weapon (just equip the weapon in your main hand, put the seed in it, unequip it then select it with Beyond the Flesh). You can also combine seeds with tinkers (which can also be added to psionic weapons) but it's kinda annoying to swap them (unless this was changed somehow in 1.5).

maybe in bizzaro world where demon seeds doesn't have a proc that's AB-tier strong or easily swapped abilities that let you disable every enemy type except for doomed, or the best status removal in the game
