if I was able to complete the process as a human (...) then none of these crybabies should be afforded an easier go of it.
If I remember correctly, you were ranger/priest/bard, so you had dispel magic and slow. We psionics don't have those. We do have spook, which helps with spiders, but we have to rely on dispelling weapons to dispel, and we can't slow.
It's not impossible to kill the wyrm, but it might be if you are one of these heroes with no mastered weapons or adequate armor though. It seems like there is a great slew of people that have mark/bk leveled and rushed to 240 and are not at all ready to try DOA. As I recall, I had to just use a couple of axes and brute strength the thing. We can't all be valk witches and do it easymode style.
The way the game has been going for years, there's usually no leveling forms for 3rd / 4th classes, solo leveling is harder due to changes like kraken population on lakes spawning as if it were a single lake. Getting betters isn't so easy as it used to be years ago. So in general, I would say mobbing to level or to get betters has become harder, and leveling via boss kills / marks / pirating is encouraged. Camping for betters or w/e is discouraged.
I'm one of those heroes with no mastered weapons. My best are axe (81%) and dagger (89%). I wouldn't say that I'm a bad character for that reason. I did levels 1 to 3 of DoA in 1 go (without dying), and started 4th.
Problems with the wyrm, apart from its 4 defenses, is the frequency at which the healing script triggers - it varies wildly:
[li]Fist time I tried, I got the wyrm to 50% hp after 1 hour of fight (... and then my net dropped while I was in combat, and by the time I reconnected I was dead.)[/li]
[li]Second time I tried, I fought the wyrm for 3 hours, and was unable to get it below 70% hp. The healing script kept restoring 10% of its hp each time it triggered. After 3 RL hours of fighting, it was back at 100% hp, and then I gave up. (I haven't returned since, I still gotta try to figure out how to use system update #4401.)[/li]
So this thread died when Duey posted that system update. I don't see the need to revive it to troll / dis people again.

Psionic also has SP efficient damage spells and irritation. Which, plaguing some of the NPC's can be hard. Or at least was when I did DOA last.
Even then I was not hitting harder than 270vs 0. Actually relied more on cure critical than leech. It wasn't very effective down there.
One go vs the wyrm resulted in it eating lava from vomits to scratches. So, it was doable just fine. Horrible change.
As far as dispelling with weapons go, perhaps scaly sleeves should increase the rate of dispelling.
Frankly-i wanted irritation so badly while I was down there.
The doll level can be more difficult than any of the other floors. Especially if the doll has been pushed a lot.
Shame there isn't some scripting on the cyclone to demolish gnomes. We need to put more incentive in game to not select that race than there currently is for faeries.
