ok, DL 23 or 24, not sure, were generous enough to give me FOUR potions of brawn. following derakon's advice, i quaffed all four, and now i have DEX 17, STR 18/70 and CON (still) 16.

i'm on DL25 and it's a 8-5 feeling. i've covered most of the level already but i can't find the 8.

Just fired up a long-deceased dwarf priest after a long time away from the game. On DL1 I get LF 1-8.

Found a splendid weapon that gave me +2 DEX. Went downstairs until my backpack was full and I had enough gold to ID everything I'd picked up. Got back to town and the magic shop has no staves of ID and there was only one scroll of ID to be had. It's a Morning Star of *Slay Orc* (2d6) [+5, +8] <+2>. Which is very nice, but I'm not sure if it covers the 8, so now I'm afraid to sell-ID the potions and scrolls...

This ranger died long ago. I was absent-mindedly cleaning a golem pit and forgot they have a colossus/titans in the middle.
Im now a CL40 HE mage with redonkolous gear, but cant find a combination that gives me rNether and CON200.

There's always that one resist you can't quite find, isn't there?

On DL11, Orfax just dropped The Pair of Leather Boots of Mondir (2, +10) <+4>, giving me +4 DEX, +4 Tunneling, and +4 Speed, plus free action, sustained DEX, and resist acid. God, how I love randarts. I guess the streak of good luck is running in my direction today!

so, i spent an hour trying to make a build, but nada.

yes, i am a mage so i should just mage. but i also found a great axe 11d4 , +16, +2 attacks, and TWO cloaks with brands, one lightning and one weak fire.

so i can pimp myself and do 900 dmg melee (550 vs non-lightning), but no nexus / nether resist.

or i can get ALL resists + fire immunity, AND the big axe (470 dmg vs all) but only CON110, which is about 400 hp instead of 700.

or i can just sweg with max con, max dex, max int, STR110 and a sweet dagger +8 spd, all resists ... but 190 dmg melee. oh, and no rBlind.

i know .. i'm a mage. i should mage.

EDIT: before even posting this, i found a sweg short bow that basically seems to have been built for me. rNether, rNexus, +5 INT, +3 CON. huehueheu.

Resistances are not really required, and with standard artifacts you rarely will get full coverage. Nether damage in particular is a luxury: it is uncommon, and max damage nether damage is extremely rare. High damage is limited to Osse (550), Carcharoth (550), and Dracolich (504). The next nearest is Nightcrawler (406), then the various nether ball attacks, limited to 250 damage for Morgoth. Hold life is really enough.
A hold life necklace swap is enough; I prefer Sustenance, but Evenstar is arguably better.

I like a sustenance swap as a mage, because I like clearing undead pits. You can banish the Black Reavers (and other liches), and melee all the passwalls as they arrive.
