As always, knock off the first instance when estimating probability for a stream. Yes, 1 in 100000 is right assuming no priors. But there is always a prior in an unexpected stream of failures: the...

Estie-
His problem wasn't the big guys. It's that he doesn't have enough to even handle the ancient dragons. (No Teleport other, and not enough healing/haste to kill them.)

Yeah that vault is not something worth attempting, except via Banishment. Be thankful it wasn't Ethereal hounds.

Yeah, _Detect Evil is something you need in a case like this. A checkerboard or bubble vault is too good to pass up. The only really dangerous monster in the list you mentioned is Omarax. He can kill...

Aggravate has pretty limited range in recent V--around 10 squares. (It used to be 20.) And it's not a good idea for low-HP characters. Orb really trails off in strength later in the game, by which...

Why are you so concerned about the last dungeon book? You're having no trouble slaying deep uniques like Carcharoth, so Morgoth and certainly Sauron should go down without it. Especially with Mana(!)...

The bottom line is that either the weapon should be a stat stick, with CON and (perhaps) INT or WIS+Blessed (and much of the rest is damage), or else a primary weapon where some significant fraction...

It hardly matters. I have no doubt at all the original in this case was something weak--like a Paur* glove. Probably put an upper limit on +AC for weapons, or put a limit on the maximum...

You mean meteor swarm? It's a pretty expensive spell, and it's so easy to lose valuable stuff on the floor with it. That said, I do like Ice Storm, since it's so beneficial to melee (or it was; no...

So I tried out this class, but with the less usual race of HE. It covers the holes in search, disarm, stealth, and dexterity very nicely. Quite a smooth ride so far. Got above 4 blows very quickly,...

Yep, Raal's isn't much good until pretty late in the game. You need a LOT of Mana to cast those spells. And even then, it's a stopgap until you can cast the big 3 Kelek damage spells. (Except Rift,...
