Yes. The ring was my only external source of DEX, and I had less than 180/100 internal, so the ring was giving 50% increase in damage. And since I also had Boots +6, the speed ring would have done...

1. Bad luck and fast play
2. Play an older version (on android) where there is no maximum lev for weaker ego items. (This is the big one.)

With THROWING weapons you get 2x damage. In some variants (and in older angband versions) there is also WELL_BALANCED flag, which gets another factor of two. In any case, i never throw anything...

No special options at all. Just ordinary play, with a big power up from an unusual source. And yes, I have sometimes used Tulkas for a while as a warrior in particular--and with Colluin, the...

Tulkas!

Current character (kobold warrior) just found Tulkas, "sustenance, and Amrod in a diagonal vault at DL 65. I was dual wielding STR +6 and DEX +6 rings forever*, to get max blows with Hurin. It takes...

Oh yes, right. For stances, you need to make four macros (not keymaps) that add or subtract 4 from speed and aggression settings, then return to the main screen. This makes it MUCH easier to adjust...

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.

Best possible first source of resistance (short of PDSM)

@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.
