Batezek is the 11th level in The Deeper Dungeons expansion of Dungeon Keeper.


Batezek is a pretty difficult level, especially coming out of an easy level like Netzcaro. Batezek looks like Benetzaron's little brother, as you'll be constantly bombarded with enemy hero parties trying to get into your dungeon tooth-and-nail.

Many gold seams are spread throughout the map, most acting as traps to lead the player into hero caves, and thankfully, the player can take control of Graveyards, Prisons, and Scavenger Rooms, leading to a pretty powerful repertoire of creatures, especially this late in the expansion.

A single gem face is available to the player.

The white heart lies below some impenetrable rock. On the way there, an enemy invasion will be triggered.

One strategy the player can employ, much like Kanasko and Benetzaron, is to completely fortify oneself from the world once the player has taken control of the surrounding gold seams and neutral creatures, train every creature and set up some kinds of traps before venturing outside and trying to desperately survive the mass of enemy heroes that would've gathered waiting outside, then slowly and carefully claiming each neutral expanse and cave before delving into the main enemy dungeon below the impenetrable rock.
