    My last 2 Mystic decks - Jim and Mateo - didn't use the Rosary. With less reliance on Spells from having such a strong, balanced, stat line, there's not a huge need to boost Willpower. And often, this is outclassed by St Hubert's Key in all except cost, which for Mystics, isn't a huge drawback.
    And most of my level 0 Guardian decks rather run the Guard Dog than the Beat Cop. He can cause more damage, and is cheaper - which is not insignificant to Guardians who run rigs heavy on expensive assets. The +1 Combat is super nice, but most Guardians can get that from their Weapon choice instead and 4/5 Fight is usually strong enough.

    Network57 got a reaction from Moon-beast King in Basic Weakness - do you change it between scenarios?   
    Keeps the same unless a scenario setup card or some encounter effect make you change/add/remove it.

    Should be 18/210 ~= 8%.
    1 way to get 4 single clue Haunted Woods, times 6 (because the Arkham Woods is irrelevant - any one will result in a shortage) = 6/210
    12 ways to get 3 single clue Haunted Woods and Quiet Glade = 12/210
    Total of 18 combinations (NB not permutations).

    The words black and bleach have near opposite meanings but the same etymology. Why is that not something we care about anymore? Because that change happened centuries ago. And centuries from now, the word "literally" will have two completely opposite meanings but nobody will care because language changes and that's OK.

    Honestly for the difficulty with the stand-alone bag, just remove the -6. The remainder of the bag looks pretty similar to a Standard/Hard setup for a full cycle campaign.

    The Hallway is part of the new locations, though it doesn't appear so at first. The Parlor shouldn't be removed from the game, just set aside.

    It definitely sounds like the game isn't for you. The doom issue is rarely a problem for me, and I usually play single player or two-handed, so it sounds like you're either spending time badly, or your decks are just terrible so you're getting screwed over(ArkhamDB will help with this). Also, a lot of the issues you've had, are only real issues on the first playthrough. The Unspeakable Oath for example, yes, is unexpected the first time, but it's not hard to guess that they'll mean something.
    What decks are you actually using, and what are you spending most of your time doing? If you attempt a hard test repeatedly until you pass, then it's a massive waste of time, so you need to be able to pass on the first try most of the time. Maybe be more careful with what tests you attempt? Enemies and treacheries can be difficult, but you should approach the game with Solutions in mind. for Roland for example, go in with the idea that Enemies will be easier than Treacheries, so maybe include things like Logical Reasoning to help deal with this issue, as well as his low horror. Deckbuilding is a big thing in this game, so you need to put thought into it, or use decks from ArkhamDB that you like.
    Also which Investigators are you even using? You can't solo Dunwich as Daisy and expect it to go well, for example, so what're you actually doing?
