This latest character is quite doable, but a bit tricky to get going. Tips:
  • Not having any attack but Nether Bolt to start is really hard - especially since undead are immune to it. Pick your battles, carry as much ?Phase as you can afford, and be prepared to run
  • No selling and disconnected stairs also make it hard - I recommend a first circuit of DL1 to get enough cash to buy a ?Recall, then a next dive to at least 5 or 6 to start getting more money
  • Dig for gold - Dwarves are good at that
  • Things get much better once you get the dispelling spells - Dispel Evil + Soul Siphon is the best thing ever

Digging for money does help alot (I'm used to this from some of the poscheng mage class starts) -- I scummed enough to pack a -magicmissile as a sidearm and it was pretty handy until I ran out. You can do OK with a sling + bullets also.

Congrats to elliptic for winning Comp 177, and to Invisible Stalker for his early win to light the way. Honorable mention to ranger jeff who made it pretty far

Next comp will be up in a few days. Hopefully
