Second Legit Win after 23 years!!

Hi again!!!

Well lucky attempt number 199 produced my second winner ever without save scumming!! And it looks like the first Kobold Warrior winner for 4.0.5.

I had a great Priest underway when an unfortunate power outage corrupted my save file... 0% healing is very nice. I'll be trying more Priests.

This character was lucky with an early =RoS+11 and the Trident of Wrath. From dlvl 2350 he was pretty much stomping butt. Kobold poison resist was nice, but I missed the large HP's of a Half-Troll Warrior. !Con came late, but Narya really helped in that I could wear Carlammas and Hammerhand for the HP boost while keeping ESP. When I found Deathwrecker while scumming for heals after Sauron, I pretty much immediately recalled, kitted up, and went after Morgoth. I only used one Banishment from Celeborn and one mass banishment scroll, which was all I had. In addition I used maybe 3 !CCW, 2 !Heal, 2 !*Heal*, and 0 !Life. Very uneventful, but when you hitting evil for 690 Morgoth goes down quick. I was able to fire off about 25 Seeker Arrows of Slay Evil. I was really hoping to find a Sling of Buckland, but no such luck. I'd been finding quite a few of them.

On interesting twist is that I traded out the Shield of Haradrim for Anarion for all sustains. Haradrim was providing rBlind so I ended up blind and needing to read a phase door. A !Heal took me out of the HP danger zone so all went well.

Thanks again to past and present Dev's of this game that I've wasted so much time on!!!

To get the full benefits of kobold, play a rogue. Just a classic powerdive combo.

Oh yeah, my stealth hovered between Very Good and Superb as a Kobold. Much nicer than a Half-Troll stomping around...

I'll add my congrats here. This made me look for some older variants I played... and... and... notice that Thangorodrim(.net) is gone. And with it some old and great variations.

Edit: Nevermind... my dns was not working correctly. It's still there.

In recent versions, rogue gets a bonus stealth point every 10 levels, so you are likely to reach legendary stealth by Cl 40. This is a whole different ball game.
