I'm pretty amazed i was actually able to get this far - i have to admit i'm quite proud :D

nevertheless, i decided to tackle Huan, Wolfhound of the Valar at dlvl93, had all basic resistances covered, +35 (!!!) speed, etc - the only problem being that i never encountered him before, and didn't know he breathed sound, which i didn't resist ... the rest is history

i probably should have simply teleported him away, but the current objective was to kill as many uniques as possible to aid in the fight against Sauron & Morgoth; my gear was pretty good already, right? a few more stat potions and maybe a couple better artifacts and i was ready to go... doh!

Anyway, these damn wolf uniques original at dlvl90 - they are really wicked! You see a "C" and think -oh, well. he's just a dog, whatever- and then they breathe and take you down to 50hp (this from a previous encounter of mine with Charcaroth, or whatever he is called, before i learned to give them respect..)

But my proud char will be avenged! only heaven knows though how long it will take me though to be able to get back down to those levels...

You will have a winner in next to no time. Getting to the bottom of the dungeon in 750K turns is a real accomplishment. And there are 3 'C' uniques. Huan and Carcharoth are extremely dangerous. I usually leave them alive--they have something like 8000HP.

With such a fragile character and low melee damage, you should depend more on archery, especially once you found Tenser's.

You can do ~4*3*(15+3+5) = 276 dam/shot with ordinary arrows from the store if you brand them. Most uniques are vulnerable to at least one of Fire, Cold, or Poison arrows, which you can make yourself.

Should've had the Elven Cloak of Aman. :p

That is rather unfortunate, dying like that, though.

Anyone up on their Silmarillion lore knows that Huan is permitted by the Valar to breathe sound three times in his life!
