Once you get to the fourth floor, you can just head straight to the control room if you don't care about the experience from destroying the Lord Xeen generators. On the other hand, since the main reason to reach the end of the dungeon is for bragging rights anyway, you may as well do it properly and lay waste to the entire dungeon level.

In the next and final update of Let's Play World of Xeen, the party will bear witness to the fulfilment of Xeen's destiny. Look forward to it: I know I will.
