Artifact generation
Hi, friends!
Few days ago I've killed Sauron.
Presumptuously, I decided that I able to kill Morgoth as well.
But...This guy is not simple as I thought.

Then I decided to run on floors 90-99. It seems to me that the higher the level of the dungeon, the greater the chance of generating high-level artifacts for the end-game.

But..nothing more valuable than !Life and !*Healing* after probably 10 vaults.

How many artifacts have you found already? There are a finite number of them.

Other than that... random numbers, just random numbers. :)

Here you can see my current equipment.
Of course, I have found pretty much of artifacts, but I'm sure, there are number of stuff that will help me to kill Morgoth.

Hello, when giving information about your character, it's better to post a character dump or a link to the character on the ladder.
What i definitely see from the screenshot is that you could replace the RoS +11 with anything (base 20 + temporary haste is enough against Morgoth) and having some STR/DEX/CON bonus would not hurt (that one missing CON would give you noticeable extra HP). Best would be to find a ring of power but finding items does not work that way :)
You also need to worry about sustains (I guess you plan to melee in the final fight). I'm not sure if you have each combat stat sustained.

I have upload the dump:

I will be very glad to your advices
Still looking for the rings of power ;(

Rings of power are nice, but not necessary. You have no really high end weapons, alas, although the Holy Avenger scythe is certainly better than Aiglos against Morgoth. But a Palafin should be doing 450+ vs evil.

Avavir and Elvagil are junk at this point.

If you're going to hunt artifacts for longer, then Power Dragon Scale Mail and Necklace of the Dwarves is probably a better armor/amulet combo than Isildur/Trickery. Keep Trickery ofc for situations you need SustDex. This is certainly not a necessary switch, but it would fill your resistance holes, give higher constitution, strength and grant regeneration. You have way enough speed already, minor dex-hit (from 18/*** to 18/180) shouldn't lower your number of blows and moderate stealth bonus you don't need.

Also for inventory management, all of the four bigger spellbooks cannot be destroyed or stolen with high DEX. Only need to carry one copy of each. Even those destructible spellbooks you're carrying too many. 2-3 should be safe. Furthermore, 17 Satisfy Hunger scrolls is totally unnecessary. One is enough with SlowDigestion intrinsic (I don't remember, if paladin had a Satisfy Hunger spell, in which case you need zero scrolls). These adjustments alone should nullify encumbrance speed penalty.

Happy hunting and hope this helps.

Thank you for advices!
I play Angband about 3 years, but never went through that far

Nenya found!!!
P.S. I hate Tarrasque. It's unkillable.

Pete Mack August 13, 2019 19:21

Without fire and cold immunities, it just wrecks your gear, so it isn't worth killing. But a high level Paladin with double fire/cold resist should be able to kill pretty much any monster in the game, assuming an endgame weapon (which you don't really have.)
