Another thing to remember, is dragonscale armour. Early-mid game is when they start showing up, and they can be great to soften up early-mid uniques.

It's not like you can carry a bunch of them,...

The hockey stick is the term that has been coined here. It is a bit like the knight move in chess or go. It is where the monster is positioned two squares ahead and one square to the left or right....

I don't think it is a core way of playing either, but it has certainly been suggested as a way of fighting Morgoth and taking out the unique Q in a couple of recent threads.

If you know where the baddies are and they are awake, you can do trick shots with the target command to get rid of them while they are still out of LOS. My current game is a mage and with very low...

Another I would add to my list is grand master mystics. I don't know what their native level is but they seem to show up way earlier than when they can be dealt with easily.
