Again. If this is implemented, I'm pretty sure I can adapt. Doesn't mean I'd actually support it, but like many other players here, I've played variants that have slowing (or hasting) terrain. Not a...

If I have wand or rod of light, I simply don't use it. Cast once, get EXP, that's it.

Rods of light are all-in-all pretty good as long as you find ESP. Having more than one in your inventory is...

Heh, I forgot randarts can have branding ego. That's some nice blade now.
For a character lurking around at dlvl 43, your guy was exceptionally well geared. Just low on HP.

Damage comparison is close to a tie, but I'd go for the katana.

You have the best bow in the game and about 2nd or 3rd best weapon in the game. So damage-wise you're set if you really want to kill the Tarrasque and Ancalagon.

For Tarrasque you wanna have...

I'm really not into prolonging the endgame, but this almost certainly would've left a few ironman characters of mine a much higher odds of winning the game.

Aight, that makes sense. There weren't big enough pools in the Forest to really take an advantage of this. Just one or two tile puddles.

Another horrible drolem death.

I assume the drolem was summoned so my question is: can a death knight (or any summoner with S_MONSTERS flag) really summon a monster 14 levels out of depth?

99,9% certain lurker. You need to have more dmg/turn to two-shot a midgame Q or a trapper.

I assumed something like this. It did around 50-60 acid dmg per turn average, so it was a great find for a half-elf rogue. In hindsight, it was even greater because the quake never did occur.
