Yeah, Nar is bad news if you are diving without escapes. Priest can escape with Portal and recall. Arcane casters can avoid him with detection. But for weak-ish warriors and paladins, you are dead...

OK, this is a funny game. Upgraded average cloak to Colluin at dl 23. Now i upgraded a +6 dagger to Hurin at dl 26. FA would be really helpful, what with being stuck nearly blind with a wooden torch.

Were you drawing to the screen or to a backup buffer? As earlier post says, doing the latter, then blitting everything into place makes a big difference (and eliminates the flicker.)

The tarrasque pretty much requires immunity, not just double resistance. Otherwise you lose ridiculous amounts of inventory. Mostly I refuse to fight it.

Just reached DL 23, cl 17 with a kobold warrior, essentially without any gear at all (+6 dagger, +5 longbow, enchanted leather armor, etc.)

Oh, ugh. Farming is just a hopelessly boring way to level up (if you must farm, use black oozes to get a bit of loot out of the process.)

@gglibertine-
Have you tried a high stealth character? I suspect they are the easiest for learning to dive. Also helps to have full monster detection in a town book. Try a high-elf rogue. The...

Whoops, did not see the forum name when I posted. But resistance works similarly to in V: the less damage you're taking, the less likely things are to break.

Well, I finished. Used 1 ,Vigor and 2 !Life. In this version, Haradrim sustains both STR and CON, and DEX blow count tops out at 18/150, so I was pretty well covered after all, though I did manage to...

You lose nothing to give up breath attacks. They work on mobs, sure. But mobs are very much a secondary issue.
