Main weapons are a rod of fire bolts and a wand of Acid Balls, both purchased from the black market. Other than that, it's a Sling +7. Without a real bow, this character is just helpless.
Not sure where to head next. Just finished the Death Swords quest, then closed the game in frustration.
If you only want an enchanted bow you can just pay for it with your leprechaun pot of gold.
You can pay the archer's guild (in any town except Outpost) to enchant bows and arrows, with the max enchantment based on your level. You can get yourself a +7 bow, and you might as well enchant up any ego ammo you have as well.

All I've found is a shortbow, so I might as well stick to the sling. The bow only would do about 13% more damage, since arrows have significantly fewer criticals than shot.

This is the poschengband grind. Almost every character hits it at some point, most of the non-OP builds hit it around CL25-30. I think clouded said it best, poscheng is all about how quickly you can start killing wyrms.

For a character like Leprechaun the quickest and least painful way to progress is to dive deep (DL60), scour the levels for devices and then start killing high level hounds (plasma, nether, time) with wands of dragon fire/frost, those give something like 7k xp each so it's really effective. If you don't want to try and get into the dragon cave then dive down in Angband and purposefully fail the guardian quests, tanking your fame doesn't matter if you don't want to spend any money on reforges, Leprechauns need that for greed power. Dungeons like the castle and graveyard have more of certain types of monsters in them so they really aren't preferable. Once you've gained a bunch of levels, then you can go down deeper and find staves of healing, then maybe you can actually kill some dangerous stuff!

Yeah, after finishing Azog, I started diving in Angband. Quickly found a sling of accuracy(+23,+18), which helps.
How does the greed mechanic work, beyond granting essentially infinite mana (not that it helps much, with such limited spellcasting.)

You get scaling bonuses to a lot of stuff like blows, shots, life rating, device skill. It maxes out at 10M gold, later on you get a passive ability to get gold whenever you destroy and item (with the autodestroyer) and you get bonus gold drops from monsters.

Cool. How long does the gold-for-destroyed-objects take? Obsessive selling is getting old fast--and I'm only at 240K GP (dl 40 angband.) The Craven personality doesn't help with this either :/

Congrats to Roch, murphy, and nikheizen for valiant efforts. But, to be honest, you all kind of sucked this time.
