I can never seem to catch the Tarrasque when it's alone. There always seems to be a more promising target to go after, so he gets TO'd *and again as needed), not that I haven't runs into it a bunch of times. I think the my other problem is that it breathes a thing or two that I don't currently resist and I've long heard of the death by Tarrasque horror stories...

@ Timo, Sauron did TL me once, thus the need to look for a new source of speed. But the bigger problem is that I'm playing a slightly dated version of DaJ and the intelligent uniques use smart_AI by default. This cause him to teleport away whenever he gets low on health (and repeat). At least that's what I think is going on. I'm not complaining though, I'll get him eventually.

EDIT: And now he's he's dead. He tried to TL me with 1 * left, after of course teleporting with 3 *'s left. He dropped nothing useful and then I took the stairs down before my Plantir recharged, and I have no other means of detection/mapping.

As for the summons, I prefer to deal with them the old fashion way, by killing them (mostly, maybe a few get TO's and killed later). I've only used one ACS this game. To kill the Leranean Hydra, the first big summoner I met. I'm trying hard to avoid all the cheese. Ya know, ASC's, destructing vaults, scumming for supplies, buying out stores, farming etc...

Congratulations brother!
My real life twin brother just became a WINNER, and I have cheated death this time too, so I'm a LOOSER. But still, practice makes perfect, right?


I'm an Arch-Mage and just had a decent 30 minutes on level 99 and 100 where I found Enya, Feanor and Soul keeper.

Level 100 is easy to loot as Mage, after luring P up into a corner.
I even found the One Ring! on one of my many runs, but...

I have no idea what to do against P!

No magic seems to hurt him, no arrows (Bard), no weapon damage (F Bluecloak).
I keep trying, but have to teleport away before he's taken any visible damage.

Any ideas? the forum says Mages have an easy endgame, and sure: banish makes a smooth ride, but mr Morgoth seems to be the exception.

Magic hurts him just fine. Use wands of annihilation or meteor swarm or rift. Some people prefer manastorm. It depends upon your CL and how many wands of annihilation you manage to collect and which exact version you are playing.

He has so many hitpoint it takes many attacks to reduce him 10% to see a * go away. Just keep plugging away.

Thanks!

I did save (almost) all Life-, *Heal*- and Restore-Mana potions for Morgoth:
these plus some Healing- and Magi-staffs made it possible stay close to P.

The Mass Banish spell, Greater Recharging and Rift-spells did the trick!
(Though his mana storms gave me a scare at times...)

Hard work. And I cheated this time too.
(Before I found the last spellbok, I died several times)
Wonder if I'll ever become a true winner?

ps.
but I do long for the sweet taste of WINNING,
and since my brother will keep taunting me as a master geek
untill I too do it right, I'll probably start my next try... today.

If we're talking about V, chaos strike also works just fine. Rift is probably the worst choice re damage per mana point.

Rift against Morgoth results in much needed breathers everytime he teleports away. Gives me time to recharge drained staffs and heal. My 1st choice

In other words rift is dangerous to M for same reason gravity is dangerous to player
