which stats affect archery?
 
so, early in my career as a randart ranger .. i found a x6 longbow, (+9, +22).
im CL40 and a seeker arrow of flame hits for 1172 dmg. (huehue)

so .. wondering. what stats affect archery?
i wana see if i can 1-shot morgoth.


edit: woha! i can enchant my own arrows AND artifacts?

i'm actually seeing that using or not a ring of DEX +5 barely affects the archery damage.

edit 2: ok, wow, the class is overpowered. i just lolled my way through a greater vault with the phoenix and he maiar of the sun.

Ranger starts off as a weak class and ends up laughably strong, with overpowered damage AND some ridiculous spells.

Morgoth has 20000 hitpoints. The only variant I know of where he's in one-shot territory is ToME2, where alchemists can get arbitrary numbers of blows per round if they're willing to grind until the sun turns into a small lump of coal.

You can come close with thaumaturgy, and not nearly so much effort. First do the usual create walls. Then area blast gravity.

Wouldn't gravity teleport him away? But otherwise, point taken. Thaumaturgy is also pretty ridiculous.

I forget which element does arbitrary slowing and significant damage. Whichever it is, it will kill just about any enemy before he gets a single move.

It's inertia... and yes, it is just that ridiculous. (Though IIRC it's pretty unlikely that you'll get a high-level Area-Inertia spell. I can't recall offhand if if the slowing effect is based on monster level vs. spell level in any way, so it still might work with low-level Area-Inertia... or at least you could cast a few times and then just use a high-level $whatever spell to finish him off while he stands there with ~1 turn per 100 of your turns.)

I expect that DEX has a minor effect on your chance to hit (though your class and level will have a much bigger impact), but otherwise none of them.

in fact, rings of damage do not help. i'll try pumping speed.
