Time to go back to farming runs to see if I can manage to clear Spire IV without beefing up on Golden Battles and splurging at the Bone Trader.
I found it easier to get a bunch of plagued heirlooms before attempting the spire. I was regularly doing 510 runs, and had a couple up to 525, before I beat it.

It has a bunch of new perks and abilities. I'm not actually there yet, but I messed with it a bit when it was on the test server.

I had previously said it would be interesting to more or less start over, and see how much of the previous slow start was just due to my learning curve, but I had no interest in actually starting over, so this seems like it is an interesting set up.
