@Sky: wise choice. The trick in angband is to make that choice a hundred times in the game.
That said, ABD is a pretty good target for a mage ter on, when you have double resistance, or at the very least, single resist and an item in every armor slot.
With the latter, the max damage is 880/6 = 146; with the former, it's a paltry 49. Other ancient dragons are somewhat more dangerous, as there's no attenuation from armor.
