Mind you, you can skip destroying the sunwall (tho, do remember it's a military outpost and one that had been constantly launching attacks to enslave/genocide the local orc populations so, uh, wrecking it isn't exactly a barbarous thing) if you feel like it.* Makes things harder and I'm not sure the game acknowledges it much but that's actually optional.

Strictly speaking I don't think you have to even bust open the bridge or free the enslaved orcs; the campaign's win condition is straight south from the starting town and open as soon as you get out whatever your starting area is.

* I actually tend to just 'cause the map layout for it is kiiinda' annoying, heh.

From what I've read the campaign ignores you skipping the sunwall and acts as though you did raze it, even if you don't.

It more bothered me that the lead-up to it was played off as "you need to see the other side of the story, things really don't be like that" and... sometimes things really DO be like that. There's not much noble about the orc campaign, you just kill your way through all your little kill targets until you've hit your kill quota. I felt like it was ... falsely advertised, I guess?

But again, the entire universe is full of omnicidal psychopaths so it's par for the course.

Question: Is there any difference between glass golem and regular golem, beyond the addittional skill?

Uglier, tho.

I wish I had a drolem. But I never completed the "back again" part.

I'm pretty inconstant.

But this time it will be good, with my new Dwarf alchemist Zarathruster and his loyal glass golem

At least I got the unlock, I guess.

Trying to win normal mode on not adventure mode is.. quite difficult, not sure what I'm doing wrong when it comes to playstyle.

Don't have a consistent one at this point. I've been resetting mostly. I've been having issues with the random rares suddenly popping up and killing my characters before I can truly react.

Well... unless it's actual straight up one-shots, more escape methods might help? Movement infusions, teleport runes (phase door is not an escape method, save maybe if controlled. Don't use it as one, that will get you killed), etc. Stuff to let you pull back and regroup when you're surprised.

I've never been one-shot by rares before I could react even on insane using auto-explore. It's probably an issue of not enough escapes, yeah. Survivability always trumps damage in this.

Make sure to keep track of your status effects, and always keep a physical wild infusion around.

Be careful to which skills you decide to put on automatic when there's an enemy on screen.
Some of them are instant use and so are no problem, but some require a turn, so in case you have 3 skills you automated but each require a turn for activation, it's 3 turns you give for free to an enemy.

And this can be rather lethal for your character when you have one of those random overpowered enemy appearing at range.

I just straight up never put skills which require a turn on auto-use except when it's when enemies are not on screen. Even for stuff like reality smearing the convenience is far outweighed by the chance of getting killed.

The only talent I've done that with, pretty much ever, has been block. And that generally only with add-on classes or adventurer builds built around doing stupid things with block, such that it's basically impossible for there ever to be a better decision (for that particular character) than to block if block is off cooldown. It's not something you generally want to do, though, yeah.
