Ingwe--
I had assumed a mob was a group of unrelated monsters, say from out of a diagonal vault. I used "pack" for related ones, like wolves and hounds.

The knowledge menu ['~' command) lets you browse unenchanted weapons of all known types. Otherwise there is the 'l'ook (or e'x'amine) command, and inspecting stuff in inventory

No. There is no economics to a game where all monsters are suitable for your character's strengths.

@Arch--
NPP has this in 0.5. Unfortunately it also has hard barriers on progress in the form of unkillable angels that appear out of nowhere after DL ~60.

Rogues dont get +4 stealth til CL 40 (and +5 at 50, which many never reach.) I dont see giving rangers anything xomparable.

STM as a spell allows LOS cheese, which is insanely powerful for a ranger. My preference would be an aggravate ball spell, that works like the Blackguard spell. Much less cheesy than LOS abuse.

Ungoliant is DL 7750, 38 levels beyond your current depth. That is very close to the maximum possible difference of 40.

This still counts as a win. The most epic AAR win I recall was a FAA character that killed M and died to a Great Sky Wyrm in the same turn. IIRC, he'd run out of consumables and it was make or break.

18/80 CON is dangerously low for a mage with 18/100 internal stat. Can you get that up to 18/160+ by adjusting your equipment somehow?

If you have TO, and rods of light or ESP, there isnt much to worry about OOD monsters that cant one-shot you. Just get them coming around a corner, or better, get them asleep.

Never mind Morgoth. That will go through Ancalagon like a buzz saw. It makes killing GWoAnnihilation feasible, never mind patsies like GWoLaw. And Sky Dragons.
