I haven't stuck with Angband, despite the fact that I was one of the more serious players at one point. Angband's glory days are over. When I play it I play either 3.0.6 or earlier or a patch Eddie...

OK, first off I can't believe you did much of this in your faster wins. I mean- I've been working on getting to 1500' in 50k turns, and.. it's all about finding stairs. Is getting a drop from an orc...

OK, but I think you're not addressing the question here. Why spend all that time killing some orcs? You could go down 1000' in the same amount of time. Unless you mean that you are killing some orcs...

That sucks. A few years ago, when I sucked at Angband, I decided to try to play faster. I was aiming at getting to 1000' in one trip with a warrior. I had sold everything so I could buy ?recall.

Including Dreads. Dreads suck. If you get deep without SI they are the thing that is going to kill you. They're also the best mid-game argument for the importance of ESP. If you can actually see how...

I can't remember the last time I killed him. Ignore him. He's not important.

Really? I mean, I guess you're right if you add up the mana cost and compare it to the amount of damage done. But when I play Rangers I just avoid corridors full of zappables. Actually, I don't think...

I'm not sure what the ultimate ego weapon would be. But I know that I find a really good ego weapon in most games. I mean- you're far more likely to find a good SoS or BoC or MoD than you are to find...

50th level HE warrior with winning kit. My first real game in the new NPP, iirc- or maybe it was my last real game in the old one. Wanted to kill Vecna before M. Vecna is really a badass in NPP- he...

I'm still trying to figure out why it should be changed. But I agree that if it is changed it should be changed so that you can target anything you can see. This still poses problems, when you have...

Wow- do me a favor and stay the hell away from V, OK. You need to be a variant maintainer, if only to keep the rest of us safe from this sort of thing.

I think that's about it. And I think it is a feature when it comes to monsters that move. Hounds are balanced with that in mind. If you can't kill them in one shot they can still overwhelm you.

First off, I'm still playing 3.0.x, so bear that in mind. I really don't know 3.1.1, so you might want to take my advice with a smidgin of salt.
