Very first game after 20 years going strong

So I reached lvl 51 with a character that has ridiculously high damage output but still a bit too slow against most major threats.

My old coward senses tingled strongly in one vault where I met one major demon the first time of my life. Detect Evil sensed a monster called Gelugon on dungeon level 32. I had never heard of such a monster before but as it was almost 40 level out of depths, I left that vault and its 8 level treasures. Had no banishment, destruction or tele other.

Later as I found tele other wand, I found the best possible greater vault and managed to clear it. Especially lucky with shield drops. Still have to use Haradrim as it is my only poison resistance item. So now its only matter of finding some speed items and preferably more resistances and this should be a lock, right?

Any tips are warmly welcomed!

EDIT: goddamn that txt file...

You're in good shape. The speed will come, and you'll be able to use better gear as your base CON goes up a bit. 580 vs evil + brand cold + *slay* undead is endgame level damage. Haradrim is an eendgame shield, equal in value to Thorin because of damage.

This just in: An old man wins Angband and feels happy.

The game certainly was kind to me giving Nimthanc on D:12. And lots of greater vaults. Aiglos made mid/late game very easy and after finding Cubragol from a plain ethereal dragon the game was basically just searching for endgame loot and teleporting bigger nasties away.

It was a blast even though I could not use magic at all. Next try should probably be rogue or mage. Well, anything but warrior.

Congrats on the win! I've always had a soft spot for half-troll warriors. They're just so freakishly strong. It's amazing what you can accomplish when you're dishing out 500+ damage/round and have over 1000 hitpoints, even if you can't do much of anything else!

Thanks dudes!!

I'll write short since my last post was vanished coz of my lame-ass connection.

For short: Did I get exceptionally lucky? I sure as hell felt like it.

And btw.. That Balance Dragon Scale mail of mine was just so overwhelmingly good that it made me think I should have not gotten this thing.

Did I just get too lucky?

Yeah, Dwarven and Elvenkind Balance DSM and Dwarven PDSM are pretty much ridiculous. Yours was even more so, since RNether is such a good random resistance on top of all the other high resists from Balance DSM. Dwarven MHDSM is already pretty overwhelmingly strong, better than most artifact armor.

Congrats! Your win probably deserves its own thread but I certainly don't mind you posting it here

My final battle was probably less dangerous than yours. That, if you actually fought Morgy with +28 speed. Pummeling him with Deathwreaker going almost +50 speed felt like an overkill. But the overkill is my kind of kill.

I gotta mention Sauron's drops here. I was not expecting to get the One Ring or anything but just two items. Bunch of arrows and an ego beaked axe.
