angband speedrun, rnd artifacts 5hrs30mins realtime!

First played 20 years ago. First completion took about 2 months.

Had a long spell off. Started again recently with 4.2.3.

First I could get it down to 2 days.... then one day... then one long sitting.

Now 5hrs 30 mins!!

High elf mage. Start 20 flasks oil, 5 cure light wounds, 5 phase doors.

Dive hard. Lucky Ring of Speed +7 @ ~1300m

Ignore anything that isnt good, easy to kill xp. At first its wolves, them mumaks, then easy greater demons. 6+headed hydras once you have resist poison. Nether and plasma hounds good but require care! NEVER Aether hounds or Tindalos!

Had all spell books by level 35. (dimension door/ banishment power spike).

Dive hard, dont stop unless it looks easy, lots of items, and banish everything nasty before going into a big pit.

Dont bother fighting nasty uniques till level 45 (manastorm)

IF I had a wand of clone monster, this would have been even faster...

I dove so hard I didnt find any boots of speed till I was at Sauron. With earlier boots of speed it would have been faster too! Sadly I had to search around at 4950 till I was at least blow for blow with Morgoth.

Started 1pm, finished 6.30pm!

5.5hrs is 20k seconds. 75k turns (not sure how they are counted). But play rate was fast!

Um, holy crap, that's amazing! I'm curious how many resting turns? And wondering if you could post the character dump on the ladder?

I have wondered about this when we've had 24hour comps - I know the style of play should be a bit different - not worrying about turn count so much and resting since in real time it takes zero time.

5 hours ? Sounds about right. Nice job.

What do you think would be the limit if there was a speedrunning "community" going at it ?

Also, mind posting the dump ?

There’s unlikely to be a significant speedup available like in many video games with physics models to exploit. Even playing fast and aggressive, there’s just a lot of grinding.

typically the biggest bottlenecks to a speedrun is
-wizards tomb of power by at least level 35. This is just a complete roll of the dice!

the safest way to jump from level 35-45 is an immunity, a great wyrm, a wand of clone monster. Clone up 40+ great wyrms then kill them all with staff dispel evil/ holiness. Usually by the time you've cloned this many, many of them are half dead from friendly fire! At levels 35-40 you will need either a lot of potions of cure critical, a wand of CLW or resist blindness/confusion.
This is almost guaranteed to get you a wizards tomb of power. Also lots of stats gain potions.
Oddly in the above speed run this just never came together cos I never found a wand of clone monster.
I think I blew up my only wand of clone monster going level 35-37 cloning hand druj.

The full dump for those who wanted it :-)

Thanks.

So, I dont think you need a wizards tome of power. You need arcane control for mana bolt.

Also, you can skip all the levelling up and stat gaining and kill Morgoth by abusing LOS, that should speed up the process again. If control teleport is 100% accurate (is it ? I never got around to test it), even the Morgoth fight should be quick.

With that in mind, I would guess a time below 3 hours might not be unreasonable.

Now arcane control and a few mana potions is easy to get and a reliable way of boss killing. Archery seems less ideal without the levels to get the to hit value up.

However, finding enough wands of annihilation seems like a reasonable proposition, which opens up the rogue class with possibly superior diving performance.The drawback is that you need something to kill the trash - wizard is covered there with arcane control.

okay... looks like first time not a freak. Just did it again in 5hr 10mins.

High Elf Mage again. Game was really slow till level 36 when I had acid immunity and found great acid wyrm. Then bascially instantly to level 48, then straight down to kill morgoth. Only 30 uniques killed. Never even saw tarresque! Went straight past several large object stacked vaults....... felt so wrong!

All this game I was struggling with lack of int/ spell points. Even at the end I didnt kill morgoth mostly with mana storm simply cos my fail on it was so high. Thankfully want of annihilation held out!

Less than 5 hrs certainly possible. Less than 4.... that would be tricky!

Tip here... I wasted WAY too much time trying to kill early/ easy uniques.

Just a tip for posting dumps on the forum - put CODE tags around the whole dump (the # on the toolbar). I've done it for your two dumps in this thread, and it sets the dump out with the right fixed-width font and spacing, and makes it easier to read.
