This strategy is *very* old. It comes down to 'stat gain at DL 40' and it goes back to well before I joined rgra a dozen years ago.

So... seeker ammo should be required for LOS abuse? Because the sling can never be nerfed enough!

pConf and blind are kinda overrated. You have 100% save and rLight/rDark, so only melee attacks can affect you. There just aren't that many bad monsters that do it (Giants and Cat Lord.)

MoD (HA)--especially with big damage bonus--is not generic, any more than a high-gamage x5 Longbow of Lothlorien. You are lucky to find even one in a game. Certain dwarven DSMs are better than most...

No. Arrows are spin-stabilized (by the curve of the feathers), so any curving is essentially random.

MoD (Holy Avenger) (+21,+21) is one of the best weapons in the game. I suppose a weapon with speed might be marginally better, but that character is hard to top.

You might want a better bow...

That denouement is awesome! But really, you has pretty much finished looting the vault, and got a nice jewel out of it.

Taratol is nice for the immunity and activation. It is a great swap against (blue) dragon pits. But it isn't an endgame weapon. Nor, for that matter, is Mundwine. Aglarang is better, especially for...

I like the idea of ambient sound for the game, rather than sound effects. (In fact I play with sound off.) But itd be a major undertaking.

It's magical, all right. Arrows take a lot of work to make, and require more than wood to make them. And sometimes you get ego arrows as a result.
