Monster drop quality is always at least the monster's native depth, so there's no penalty for fighting uniques when they're out-of-depth.

If I recall the mechanics correctly big summoners are easier to fight way out of depth. Fight him early -assuming you can- and you won't have to deal with the really dangerous greater demon summons.

Here is whoa as well as woe.

I once found a Ring of the Mouse (0, -3) <+4> in about depth 450 with a hobbit ranger. It stayed with him till he died from a gaze of a basilisk without free action .

Looking at the data files, mouse is (0 -3d4)<d4, d4>. So it was the best possible with a chance of 1/1024.

Dave XIV (high elf paladin) found Balance Dragon Scale Mail – I won't abbreviate it – and a RoS+8 before he'd hit CL20. And was then killed in mysterious circumstances by a bleedin' Ogre Mage.

Whoa followed by woe.

Hopefully Dave XV will be the first Dave to make it beyond CL30. I'm on a very bad run here!

Quite shallow... CL25, DL21. CL25 is normally the point at which I start getting ahead of myself, DL-wise. It was a couple of pesky Bats of Gorgoroth wot did the real damage.

Dave X *did* get to CL30 and got drolemed on DL41. He had his own moment of woah with BoS+7 at DL<20.

The absence of poison resistance has been the bane of many a Dave.

Perhaps Dave should become a Kobold?

Dave *hates* not having see invisible, but given that SI is comparatively common then becoming a kobold might well be the answer.

*points Wand of Polymorph at self*
