Like I said: complement rather thanopposite. But that's really a matter of terminology, not actual disagreement.

You're just about good to go.7 ?Mass banishment and 5 ? banishment is enough, and over 600 damage per round is phenomenal, which you will get easily with triple (hero/berserk/blessed) buffing. Those...

Estie---not sure about opposite. Complement, maybe. HT Rogue is a pretty survivable combination, just like HE Paladin. In this case, the weaknesses of the race are balanced by the strengths of the...

I bought a rapier(HA) fairly early, which I used for quite a while. I briefly used a +2 attacks Halberd, after which I started seeing a whole bunch of near endgame randart weapons. But it's hard...

YAWP: Vanilla HE Paladin

Yeah, it's an easy combo. But I wanted to play paladin without quite so much of the things I dislike about the class. (The bad stealth, the endless traps, and the long time to 5 blows compared to...

The usual way to pillar dance M is to run in a circuit around a small GV, taking a shot at each corner, then retreating to the next. To guarantee a free turn, you need to shoot arrows at the ground...

Oh, sure. I'd forgotten the context. In Bubbles and Checkerboard, it's always worth going as far as you can. Those are hugely profitable.

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.)
Edit: it's worth...

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

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(!)...

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...

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,...
