I have started to respect mages. They have the most control in game.
With Kelek they can do whatever they want. Thankfully I'v found it very early.
Why did I struggle with gnome mages before? Stealth, I think. I needed more Stealth. And more level scumming.

There is a pattern in all my games where I reach dl98 very quickly, and then painfully long grind for *Healing*, *Banishment* and other supplies. I wonder how could I minimize that phase of the game? Where do I get that stuff quicker?

That's easy: scum for Ainu pits.

Huh. I thought priest recharge was lesser recharge only... Goes to look. Lesser recharge is very weak (max level 12). Recharge scroll is level 50. Priest recharge is PL+20. Greater recharge is PL+50. The odds of success go like 1/(100+level-object level), decreasing rapidly with number of charges, especially for high-level things like annihilation with only a few charges expected.

I tried playing Mage for 3 tries. Did not have patience to continuously cast and aim. Final try died to a dark elven lord and frustration.

* object level max is 50.

Undead pits work well too. Yeah, some have no drops. But the others have low HP and more than make up for it, and it's easy to get a good weapon with the right slay or *slay*. All it takes is an amulet of sustenance (if you don't have the sustains some other way.)

That is a big problem, actually.
Single key solution:
= Keys mappings: F8 = m3h' (Acid bolt from book #3 at nearest target )
= User interface options: use old target by default
' character at the end of mapping means auto-aim at nearest target

In rare exceptions where I need to aim at not nearest target, I would first use "l" to point at monster, thent hit "t" to mark it. All subsequent F8 would shoot acid bolt at that target. Foolproof.

Ah, I see you've finally come around . Mages are the ultimate masters of the dungeon. I have a hard time playing anything else, since I miss that ultimate control: I feel blind and crippled with all other classes.

To keep things exciting, just dive right away for dl98.
