Currently in the high DL 20s, clearing most levels to get good loot, rather than diving fast. Fights aren't really that challenging right now, when do I get fear resist? CL30? Is that right?
Warriors get protection from fear at clvl 30, yes.

Drolems and AMHDs are the first really big gas breathers, and they don't show up for awhile yet. They're native to dlvls 44 and 43, respectively, but they're also both really rare, so I'm honestly not that fussed if I don't have poison resist by those depths. Just try to hang onto any sources of it you do find.

How hard to kill Morgoth?

Not so hard, actually.
If you managed to get to level 100, you have most of what you need.

You will need:

+ Phase door -scrolls
when he brings som friends, you should make sure not to fight them all
at the same time

+ 6+ rods of teleport monster (or spell book)
to get rid of Morgoth friends

+ Scrolls of *Destruction*
if Morgoth brings friends, teleport away Morgoth and *Destroy* his friends.

+ 10+ (*Heal* and/ or Life)
+ 10+ Healing potions

+ Speed 30 or more

Stay above 600 HP at all times. if you have 646 Heal is enough,
but I'd drink a *Heal* at 555...


And... play slowly.


Good luck!

That's if the friends you fear are non-uniques. If there are a lot of dangerous uniques nearby, then destructing them is a mistake because it allows M to summon them again. It may be better to teleport self and hope M can find you but the uniques cannot.

Only do this once if you do it at all. Random teleportation on a level full of nasties is a very bad idea.

Don't know that you actually need so many heals. It depends. See this related thread... http://angband.oook.cz/forum/showthread.php?t=8038

I've just found Augmented Chainmail of Elvenkind that gives me high AC and res acid, fire, frost, dark, lightening +1 stealth but I've also got a robe of permanence that gives less AC same resists except sound not dark and sustains stats and lifeforce.

Which one should I be wearing? Keep getting life force drained by ghosts and vampire bats and don't seem to be finding many life levels potions.

Maybe carry robe of perm and swap it in when fighting vampires/drainers?

Also just got Theoden's axe, grants telepathy! But doesn't do anywhere near as much damage as Careth, think I'll carry theoden for exploring then swap in Careth when fighting anything tough.

I assume Theoden will do more damage once I get STR and DEX up a bit.

Robe. I would use the elven mail if it had poison or maybe disenchantment resistance; otherwise, I prefer the sustains.

Having a weapon with ESP is always a mixed blessing. Sooner or later, youll end up swapping weapons a lot.
