View Full Version : [V3.1.1]Gear advice for High-elf ranger

August 16, 2009, 14:13
So, after yet another long break from the game I started a high-elf ranger with the new v ersion (no idea which subversion, sources seem to be from july 26th). I've been playing the game on and off since early amiga versions around 1993 or so, but haven't been this deep (L64, 3200ft) often enough to make a decision on which gear to keep stashed in case I find something otherwise nice. Mainly, should I realistically expect to wield anything else than Eonwe, Aule, or possibly Ringil in case I find it, or wear Hammerhand for any reason at all, didn't even remember it aggravating.
Here's the link to the dump at ladder:

I wouldn't part with Erebor. CON+5 is always a possibility.

As an update, found Thorin, that covers chaos and sound at the cost of disenchantment. Base speed now +15 thanks to RoS+5 found on the same 6600ft level as Thorin. Now getting +13 con from equipment out of +8 needed for 18/200 (base at 18/91, just a couple of potions more). Probably ditching the rChaos elvenkind armour and serenity hat from home now, those are just ego so at least in principle they can be scummed for in case I need them. By the way, is fear resist needed at all if you have perfect saving throw?

You can't scum for Serenity -- it's way rarer than artifacts. Nevertheless, given Thorin, you can replace it with Holhenneth etc.

Rarer than artifacts? Unless I'm reading the files completely wrong, it's just rarity 6 compared to say, rarity 4 on a crown of magi. Crowns in general are rare, granted, but that doesn't sound too rare to me. Shrug, academic question now with Thorin, anyway.
Only resist holes left are shards, nexus (no leveltele or statscramble thanks to 100% save), and the one that bothers me the most, disenchantment.

My Dunadan priest killed Morgoth wielding Eonwe in a 98 round battle. See thread LCC3 progress. It is a great weapon for slay evil (ranked 13th) just above my sword Crisdurian. See thread LCC4 progress for a weapons spoiler.
