EDIT apparently this isn't my first warrior win. I had one where i found a ring of +2 blows that i had forgotten about.

my first warrior win. Also, the first win where i didn't massively scum the BM - i didn't rest-spam until the very last fight, to reset my rods of healing, and once before that for my rod of restoration.

Lucky as i found rather quickly a set of gear that covered pretty much all my resists, and then later on a artifact Dragon Armor. Also lucky in finding two big-dice weapons, one for 555 vs all, and another with 1350 vs undead and demons; this is the first time i ever carried a swap.
I also carried another swap, the Longbow you see here, for fire immunity, but i mostly carried a Sling that did a crapload of damage and has lightning brand, and was also my only source of Satisfy Hunger.

Most of the early game was done without any basic resists, but i did have a rapier that gave me +5 speed and i then found some boots +6.

Very easy game, everything just seemed to fit into place. Probably my lowest turncount by far.

Did not have SI until the very end. I even took out Q without SI, bonking him but not being able to see him. And he summoned almost nothing, and he was in a ridiculous spot in a corridor that i tunnelled to.

I did meet him once before, or so i think, because i started seeing just about every.unique.ever pop out of thin air. Grossly OOD too.

130K turns is perfectly respectable. Congrats!
* That armor is nuts.
* You should be able to see Q OK, with infravision, though it actually doesn't matter since he has AC ~1. (You are guaranteed minimum miss rate either way.)
* I agree swaps can really help.

Half-Orc is really great for warriors; the extra +2 STR really helps with getting more blows out of your first magic weapon, if you are not lucky enough to get a dagger.
+1 CON and free rDark (which helps immensly against dark hounds) is totally worth 110% XP. You do get some penalties to various stuff, like disarm traps, but nothing too relevant, and you also do get an extra bit attack which is always good when attacking stuff is 99% of what you do.

And one more thing. It doesn't have the big DEX penalty that makes it almost impossible to get 6 blows with a Half-troll.

yes, i do think the troll has too much DEX penalty. It's dumb, takes much XP to level up, Regen is useless in the endgame (as you likely have it elsewhere) .. you do get a great big STR bonus, but the low DEX kinda makes it redundant for the early game, and endgame you can easily cap STR.

i like trolls as mages

regen is useful for a mage, early on, and rough STR allows me to carry stuff to sell.
