I don't think Opportunist is overpowered, but I think Kemen and Cat Assassins are annoying enough to justify getting it and it's certainly not BAD...

To be fair, that character had permahaste and a sharp frost weapon. I think you'd actually do better with a greatsword against Morgoth, as opposed to a longsword. It's not like you're going to get a...

At least spears of the vanyar or feanorian swords can have a use though. More so with the latter... but then you have to deal with the Danger thing the whole time. Questionable for one point of...

Maybe it could say 'While standing in a doorway".

Also, the reason I suggested the +Gra items isn't that you have to use them (I would use a Feanorian lamp of grace), but that it's less item...

Song of Challenge is good, very useful against cat assassins. I think anticipate is good, I don't really read the combat messages so it's hard to tell when it triggers. Vengeance is okay, too. I had...

I saw in one of the earlier threads that you had wanted to get rid of the "smithing kit" strategy. I think this would be good too, since juggling items kind of sucks. Maybe gloves of the forge and...

I gave this version a try since I just got back into Sil again, and it seems that smithing has gotten hit pretty hard by this fork, and it was already bad to begin with. Maybe it's just the items I...

A +7 deathblade is one of the best weapons you will ever see short of Ringil. I would get subtlety and momentum immediately.

Right, I've just found that it can be tricky to actually get this off when there's a few enemies walking around, some of them might be fast, etc.
