DL1, pick up Narthanc. A few turns later on DL3 I pick up a rod of stair detection. Stairs come fast and furious and at 1800 turns I put on an amulet of ESP on DL12 (8 treasure feeling).

It's pretty remarkable since I was not at all exploring levels, and just beelining as fast as I could to the first available stairs.

Grotug January 20, 2017 23:40

I guess I dove too fast and got super unlucky. Started in a giant room full of air hounds. Had just picked up Wormtongue boots, too. Oh well.

I thought hound pack sizes had been reduced? There were 21 hounds that I could detect with ESP when I died.

Pete Mack January 21, 2017 00:37

No _Teleportation? That's pretty much a necessity by 1800'. Or if you're using connected stairs, run right back up. Surrounded by hounds on level entry is a classic death, anyway.

Grotug January 21, 2017 00:58

No I didn't really have anything since I was literally taking every stair as soon as I found it using the rod of stair location. haha.

How often do you teleport into (or start in) a room with very good objects for your depth? It always feels so improbably lucky when it happens. But I guess since I play this game so much it's bound to happen from time to time. But it happens more often than teleporting into/starting in a room full of killer hounds.

Some memorable things that were in the room I started the level on or I teleported away from danger into was an amulet of trickery (DL70something), a shield of Thorin (DL 50something, but I was diving very fast since I put the game at a 5 level skip so it was by far the best object I had found) and just now 2 !DEX on DL30 with a 3 level skip in the game settings (7800 turns so far). Still no FrAct tho.

In other news I found a crown of the magi (full basic resits and telepathy on DL25 in one of my 5-level skip games and then stupidly tried to take on an Ogre Cheiftain or some "moves quickly" ogre and died. :( Sad times. But the more I play the less I mind dying, even when I have great early gear like that!

Swapping out the other ring of damage my dam output is now 138! wow. Will be really careful not to lose this ring since I will likely be using it in the very end (if I can last that long of course; lately I've been dying a lot).

Hello, I just picked up a ring of damage (+0,+15) on DL33. It's a 9-8 level, and I was gonna take the earliest exit I saw (a trap door near the start) but my rod of treasure detection showed some nearby objects so figured I'd risk checking it out since I haven't much to lose (I'm still wielding a basic whip I found early on (+1, +5) haha but an earlier (+6) ring of damage and gloves of slaying had my average output at 75dam/round . If I survive the next few turns I will take that trap door!

I'm about to leave DL87 at 18,433 turns. Since I have forced descent on and skipping 3 dungeon levels every time I descend I have pretty much no chance of winning, but it's still fun. If I can pick up a couple of wands/rods of TO I will have a chance, but the one wand I picked up the entire game got destroyed upon trying to ?recharge. I have no telepathy, one rod of Detection I bought in the BM and am still wielding Forasgil. But I did find a rod of speed, 3 staves of speed and another ring of damage good for +14 dam and gloves of Theivery along the way. I used a ?Destruction to remove Ungoliant who was near a Topaz ring which I was hopeful was going to be a ring of speed. Counting 15 squares worked, Ungoliant got removed from the level and I easily navigated the rubble to collect the ring of speed <+9> two squares away from where she was.

If I read a ?RoP in a hallway to prevent a monster form pursuing me and then he is out of line of sight but still trying to get passed the RoP to get to me, will he have a chance to break the rune while he is offscreen?

@grotug: yes. Pathfinding works through rune of protection.

Grotug January 26, 2017 04:18

Cool, thanks.

Well, starting room on DL90 had cap of Telepathy. Now just need some TOs and maybe I have an outside chance. I used my second !Enlightenment and there is a small vault with balance dragon armor, which is very useful since I just bought a shield of resistance in the armory. The Balance armor would take care of most of the important higher resists. I'm hoping the unID'd amulet is Trickery. Of course I have no way of dealing with what's inside the vault, protecting the goods.

And some things breathed on me and I died.

Pete Mack January 26, 2017 06:33

For extreme diving, you pretty much need to go with 17/16/16 stats, especially with a low-stealth warrior. It takes too long to get survivable HP elsewise.

Grotug January 26, 2017 07:40

Okay, good point. Yeah, I died by a Winged Horror and something else of similar danger level. Pretty pathetic!
