A little more advice, Banders..

So Peppers VI, mighty but dumb HT Warrior, is cruising dl32 at cl26..got lucky with a couple !strengths and finally found a =FA..couple of questions..

My one and only ego weapon is a Beaked Axe of Slay Evil...since my current melee weap. is a lowly magic rapier, do I switch to the axe altho Id only get 2 blows/per? Gettin 4 with the dumb rapier at present..

Have yet to see a single resist armor, shield or artifact...so basically have a =rfire and a "rlightning..my other ring is the aforementioned rfire..and ive a helm of infra but no see invis has appeared yet, using a staff for that for now..is this foolish in the 30s dl-wise?

Im playing no-sell which is awesome..so ive got a bit of cash..should I maybe storescum till something useful shows up on the BM?

Thanks in advance.

You can use the "I" command to inspect weapons and get a comparison of average damage per round...without seeing a character dump I can't be sure but I'm guessing the rapier would have a better damage output. Try it out and see for yourself.

You can try store-scumming if you want but I wouldn't waste time doing that, if you keep on the grind in the dungeon better things will probably show up sooner there than the black market

On weapons, pluses tend to be worth more than slays, especially when you lose blows/round. But you can 'I'nspect the weapons to see what your average damage/round is and make an informed decision.

Lacking SI/resists is not a huge problem for you, since you're playing the most durable race/class combination in the game. You can afford to soak up more unresisted attacks, and you don't really care all that much if ghosts drain your INT/WIS. So you aren't playing foolishly, in my opinion. Still, those are your top priorities right now (after getting more damage/round of course).

Update on the weapon situation, it just became moot, found the long sword 'Elvagil' on dl33. Seems like a pretty fair artifact (playing standard artifacts btw).

Elvagil is about as useless as artifacts get, actually.

Elvagil got a boost not too long ago, specifically, it does more damage now. It's actually not a bad weapon, although it still loses out to good egos.
