AGAIN DL79.

right at the start is Maeglin, The Annoying, who resists several Rend Soul, so i turn a corner and lay down a rune. I also drink a !Mana because i know he's gonna summon EVERYTHING. And he summons two Nazguls, both of which i teleport away. He breaks my first rune, so i phase and lay another. And he breaks it. Again i phase and rune, and he summons half a dozen deadly monsters, such as Greater Titans and Great Chaos Wyrms. I MBan, fail twice, and drink another !Mana. I lay yet another rune and he finally dies .. this has to have been the easiest Maglin fight i've ever had.

He drops

The Rapier 'Eluriach' (1d6) (+24,+26) [+4]

+2 STR, +3 INT, +3 WIS, +4 DEX, +6 Tunnel
*Slay undead/demons, Slay dragon/giant/troll/orc.
weak fire brand. What is it with all these weak brands, it seems regular brands have gone extinct.
rFire, rPois, rLight, Regen, SI, FA, Bless. A: Remove Curse.

Again, not useful anymore.

I move a bit and find a chest, which drops me TWO artifact armors, but before i can see what they are, i need to quickly kill Quake, Master Of The Earth. He can be stunned by Ice Storm, so i find out.

He dies, but before i can rest, the two Nazgul show up - Khamul, The Black Easterling, and Hoarmurath Of Dir. Neither of them put up much of a fight, i do eat a nether bolt but otherwise it's just rune and melee.

My drops:

The Bastard Sword of Hilin (3d4) (+11,+12)

+3 STR +3 INT +3 WIS +3 DEX
Slay animal, *Cold, rCold (you never know), Blessed.

The STudded LEather Armour of Moromen [12,+13]

+1 DEX
IAcid, rLightning, rFire, rCold, rPois, rLight, rShards.

and finally The Adamantite Plate Mail of Eleniel [80,+25]

blimey what AC. +2 WIS, rBase, rDark, rSound.

i will sell all 3. Not that i need the money, but just as a matter of habit.

DL79 again.

Just some low level demons, i TO a Great Wyrm, and descend down the stairs.

DL80

level feeling 4-4.

DL81

level feeling 7-7, i'm out of !Enlight. I do find one in a special room, but i also find Arien, awake, and i decide to leave.

DL82

greater vault with Glaurung, Lungorthin, Cantoras, Ancalong, Scatha, Ithangast, and Polyphemus.
I TO Ancalong, rekk Scatha, rekk Ithangast, and TO Cantoras/Lungorthin/Glaurung.
I quaff a !Exp, and discard all my mage books 1-4 and make off with the following haul:

The Awl Pike 'Brevrin' (1d8) (+6,+21)

+3 CON, Slay demon, slay evil. rDisen. Blessed.

The Blade Of Chaos Of Andoling (6d5) (+5,+14) [+6]

*Slay dragon, demon, Slay troll/animal.
Acid brand, rChaos, *Acid. SI.

pretty good damage and rChaos, but not now.

The Executioner's Sword of Serebor (4d5) (+13,+5)

+3 Spd, *Slay dragon, slay evil. Cold brand.

*NOT* Ringlin.

The Scimitar 'Sarmel' (4d2) (+8,+_14)

+4 STR, +3 INT, +5 CON, +3 Infra,

*slay everything. Lightning brand. rAcid/cold/lightning, rChaos, rDisen, pBlind, SI, FA.

this is going to be my main weapon now, for the two resists i lack. Less damage, but who cares.
I also find:

The Steel helm Of Valamion [9,+18]

+4 CON, ESP, HLife.

yup.

The Jewel Encrusted Crown 'Morod' [0,+12] {cursed}

+3 WIS, +2 DEX, rLight, rChaos, pBlind, ESP, FA.
it makes hard to hit anything.

I haven't stashed any *Remove Curse*, so it might take me a while.

I prepare for the long, boring job of making an item build .. tomorrow.

CL39, 705hp, 306 sp.

Wait, what? Seriously? So Jiffy is gone in a jiff? Just like that? Obliterated?

i was trying the other builds, the ones with the necromancer, and i accidentally nuked my regular folder.

meanwhile i took a ranger randart to CL42, and while i was meleeing a horned reaper with my 700 dmg 10d3 +20 hammer, i was so tired i did not notice that he had summoned a gelugon, who breathed on me and i died.

and while looking over the spoilers film, i saw that that set didn't have a single randart bow in it.

Lightbulb

What a pity! Maybe you can recover the file using Recuva or something similar.

Be aware that an endgame ranger is generally overpowered even without finding a good artifact bow. Given 3 shots, you can do massive damage with an x5 Lothlorien bow--a good one does more damage than Bard.

you see, i *like* overpowered characters. I see an overpowered character as a reward for a player willing to put in the hours of play and diligence in building the gear.

For example, i finally had a randart set with a dragon armor which came with +5 spd and +2 shots. I was willing to slowly work my way to a CL50 Dunedain, no hurry, no fatigue, it's ok if it takes me a week.

And then i died to Grip on DL1.

i lost a CL33 rogue to being dumb. I knew it was time to carry Mage4 for TO, but i put it off for yet another CL, as i was playing Half-Orc and had pretty bad INT. I go into the dungeon and circa DL45 find a demi-vault and make off with an artifact. I also find a special room, and there is a AMHD, sleeping.

For some reason, my brain wouldnt let me leave. I thought i could stealth away from it, and then a Demilich cornered me, and the AMHD breathed on me. I had Resistances of Scarabatrice, i could have cast that, i had ?Teleport, !phase, a potion of Heal, i just dumbly let myself get killed.

Meanwhile i took another rogue to CL29, i'm gonna quit now.

I think the best thing one can do, is to keep playing until circa this danger level, DL<40, when you can still level up with ogres and orcs.

Then give yourself a break, and then do a push, a long playing session to get to CL45.

Once you are CL45+, it's really hard to die, unless it's The Tarrasque or something like that. Also high level gameplay is far less tedious.

But between CL30 and CL40+ you got that time where levelling up is really slow, and you can really exhaust your mental capacity for reasoning if you try to play too much.


Again, the same happens if you get to DL90+ and CL50 and start grinding for gear.

Or you can avoid situations like the one that killed you. Basically, ignore most vaults until you have (reliable) TO--or if you have Legendary stealth.
