Learn Vi keys. Once you do, you'll never want to use a number pad again.

So true, Much better ergonomics too.

This keyset?

Code:

y k u
 \|/
h-.-l
 /|\
b j n

Seems... very counterintuitive. But I suppose if I were to get used to it I'd never go back. Seems like it might take some getting used to, though.

Ha-Ha! Found a new endgame weapon. Wowsers. Great name. Crazy damage. One of the few artifacts I don't think I've seen mentioned on the forums. I need a source of rDisenchant, though. I think there's a "Weaponmastery on the other side of the level, but "Trickery is currently sustaining my DEX. What to do... prolly use it as a swap.

Hm...Doomcaller?

I was always partial to the Lead-Filled Mace "Skullcleaver" myself (It's a mace! That cleaves skulls!"), but that one's not in Vanilla.

Yep, you got it. :) Skullcleaver is a good one, too. I'm thinking the [-50] is not worth it, though (nevermind aggravation). I nearly died whacking away at a horned reaper. I think my acid branded beaked axe of Húrin is doing just fine


Hmmm... is a 'spear of ice' not frost? I have been stunned and given a cut from Catoras' spear of ice, even though I am wearing 'Nenya' which provides immunity to frost.

Hmm.. Eol just dropped Calris. This gives the rDisenchant I need. Hmmmm... I guess damage to dragons is better than demons? Not sure on that one. Also not sure how much the -20 to hit is going to make me miss.

-20 to hit is a lot. Holy Infusions will fix it.

I'm an illiterate warrior. What I can't decide is if I want to ditch the Doomcaller. Can't be meleeing Morgoth with it if it's gonna leave me so exposed to his blows.

Doomcaller is a lot of fun IF you are already at full strength: 18/200 CON, HP near 900. Try it on dragons first. Hurin is pretty weak for an endgame weapon.

The HJKL key assignments originally came from the Lear Siegler ADM-3A terminal:

This was used for the vi editor, and rogue (which added the diagonal movement keys).

I've been using them for vi and roguelikes for ages, and as you say once you get used to them you don't go back.
