an elf pit. i decide to clear it, and it costs me 2 !Heal... 1 !Spd .. several CCW ..

so, what happens is this:

somewhere during my clearing stuff, a chain of summons (likely through a elven druid) winds up summoning an enchantress; the enchantress manages to summon a drolem.

you know the rest.

A rod of Drain Life is probably native to DL70ish and certainly OOD on DL34.

So your game is a good example of why I play HT Warrior; I'd probably have had the CON to survive the drolem breath since you did have rPois (or did you?) Were you not using the rPois weapon you found as a swap from the Telepathy when killing dangerous things like Dark Elven Sorcerers or Enchantresses?

the elves are difficult, but not deadly. i knew i would have to burn through some consumables, but i had 36 CCW, 7 !Spd, 4 mushrooms of clear mind, and i was ready to use them.
Neither the enchantress nor the drolem were there at the beginning. Something summoned the enchantress, and then she summoned the drolem. When i got breathed on, i had not seen it at all.

I see, but you didn't have rPois at the time? Seemed like that rPois weapon you found was decent.

i had ESP on my pike ...

i don't think rPois would have helped. I had about 160hp at the time and the drolem would likely have taken them all even with the resist.

Yeah. You could have had double rpois at your level, if you were lucky with the high fail rate. Going into a fight with a mass of summoners, full buffing (Including resists) is a good idea.
Since you are now diving relatively fast, it might be worth investing in a bit more CON at the beginning. Yes, it'll cost in early melee, but that is what magic devices and arrows are for.

Interesting, Pike was snuffed by a elf pit last night too. I think it was the first time I'd seen one.
