Slowly gaining a better idea on how to dive. Made it to 800' on the first dive, my best so far, before I had to pull out the ?WoR to get me out of trouble, damn priest summoned Shagrat and co, and me with no healing potions.

Made it down to 1050' as a cl17. But found that I just didn't pack enough punch to take on anything I happened across. Combo of Air Hounds, Ochre Jelly and Uruks did me in.

At 1000' it's a good idea to have an escape. That usually means a Staff of Teleportation; the black market also frequently carries several types of scrolls that work as well. (Teleport, Teleport Level, Deep Descent.)

Just picked up Wormtongue's boots. Never seen them before, not sure if the penalty to hit and to dam would be worthwhile just for the other bonuses.

Then again it doesn't matter as I got smashed again - didn't dive anywhere near as fast this time around. But I did survive a lot longer.

Living longer doesn't matter nearly so much as living deeper. You lost two characters at dl 21. This suggests that there's something about the zone after 1000' that you need to account for. Looking at the last messages, your trouble is that you aren't using your escape often enough. 23 dam/turn is not enough for a warrior to fight through a bunch of earth hounds. Your damage is not very good for a Warrior. You can expect to be getting around 50 dam/turn (12.5 dam/blow, 4 blows) for an optimized dunadan warrior with a reasonably enchanted dagger.

geoff_tewierik May 8, 2009 08:49

Thanks Pete, I'll use tiredness as an excuse for not wielding a lighter weapon, IIRC I'd sold my main gauche of +abit +abitmore on the last trip back up.

BTW any comment on the Wormtongue boots? A Yay or Nay item?

Pete Mack May 8, 2009 15:29

No good for a warrior, unless you are planning to use archery for everything.

geoff_tewierik May 10, 2009 05:05

Slowly but surely I'm getting there, note the Dagger Pete ;) Still having brain fades though, should have used the teleport staff to get me away from whatever was hitting me, turns out it was a Black knight. :?

That's an impressive character. Surviving to dl 59 at cl 29 is impressive, especially for a warrior. (It's a bit easier for a Rogue, who has good stealth and detection, and adequate HP.) Though that rod of detection was a very nice find.

Ahh, i can still remember it like it was yesterday. Risking life and limb to crack a vault that I have no business even standing outside of.

Oh, wait. That was yesterday. I guess some people just never learn.
