Yup, just got done with another play-through and got very lucky, now I only need:
Skin of the Manticore
Scroll Level 8
Played the last level several times with M.User and Elf, that level 8 scroll simply does NOT want to drop!
Edit: scratch that, found the staff of magical power, finally!
Guess I'll keep plugging away, I'm happy to have whittled the list down this far.
