I just killed Saruman, which I've never done before, and I killed Maeglin (normally found on DL 81) yesterday, which I've also never done before. I want to start killing the 90-something level uniques, but I'm worried about my current lack of nether, sound, and disenchantment resistance. Yesterday something breathed disenchantment on me, and almost killed me, doing at least 300 damage, but didn't damage my gear.

What's the highest amount of damage I can expect unresisted breath attacks to do?

I'm going to try to kill Carcharoth now. I know nothing about his attacks. Since I've never fought him before, my monster memory is blank. I'm going in with "m5d" Resistance and the resists shown in the dump, and I'm going to hope he can't breathe nether for 600+.

EDIT: Funny, both Carcharoth and Huan were on the level, and I ended up just BARELY killing Huan with everything I had left. I used all my restore mana potions, and all but one healing potion. He did breathe sound on me pretty hard, but it wasn't enough to kill in one hit.

EDIT: Gothmog is toast. He's my highest level known unique, at DL 95. Is there anything higher before Sauron? Took him out with some Seeker Bolts of Venom (+11,+11).

Watch out for the Tarrasque if it's still alive. You might want to keep that Elvenkind armor in your backpack as a swap for disenchant resist.

Funny. I found the Shield of Deflection of Gil-galad, which grants rDisenchantment, RIGHT before I took on the Tarrasque, which immediately breathed disenchantment. I think I might have died if it weren't for that lucky find, though. That was a heavy breath attack. I've since replaced Gil-galad with Thorin, but the Tarrasque is dead and the extra CON from Thorin will help me survive pretty much anything now, I think. My max HP is now 764 at CL 41 with 18/220 CON. After killing Gothmog, and fighting Sauron into several draws, I'm starting to feel invincible.

EDIT: How many uniques are there? I'm starting to think the only way to kill Sauron will be with the bolts of slay evil I was saving for Morgoth. His HP regeneration rate is too high to kill him with meteor swarm.

Morgoth has 20,000 HP. The usual way to kill him as a mage is Mana Storm with occasional Rift and/or Phase Door to keep him at a comfortable distance. It's MUCH easier to kill him after cl 46 with Kelek's Grimoire of Power. (Raal spells are very weak in comparison.)

Otherwise You are in great shape with 700+ HP and permanent speed > 20. RNether would be nice, but you really don't need any other resists. (For Sauron, RDis is good but not mandatory, especialy for a Mage.)


You do need a quite a bit of of !Healing, !*Healing* and/or !Life. And you need at least 6 !rMana. (For real safety, something like 20 total healing potions, 6 of them *Heal*/Life.)

Pete, thanks for the advice. I'm going to take my time and kill all the non-quest uniques before trying Sauron again.

Why level 46? Am I right that even at CL 50, with 18/220+ INT, Mana Storm will still have a 14% fail rate? Or has the 18/220 (18/*** for those of us who remember that far back) limit been removed, and now having INT greater than 18/220 is useful?

For Sauron, any Acid-branded ammo you find would be useful. That is the hole in his elemental resistance.

This is just too cheap. We have to do something about this:
Code:
###
#@#
#;##
##;##
 ##;##
  ##;##
   ##;##
    ##;##
#######p#######
...............
###############
Make sure you're looking at that with a monospace font.

I can blast the target by spamming any spell macro I want, like m6f*t which fires Meteor Swarm, and the target can't see me, and therefore can't attack at all.

EDIT: I just used that to take out Vecna, who dropped both the Long Bow of Bard AND Cubragol.

That is the "hockey stick" line of sight exploit. It's a well-known issue for Angband developers.

Fixed in Zaiband, although the results are merely internally consistent rather than symmetric.
