I've done a bit of tidying up around the place, I find it really hard to squelch artifact weapons. I nearly had to grab my wrist to force myself to press the keys. I wish there was a museum in town where you could drop/sell artifacts. You wouldn't be able to get them back from the museum but it would be nice to know they were there.

I've updated the dump again, currently I have a bit of a dilemma. I found a crown of the magi which will give me ESP but I would lose pConf from Holhenneth. I feel like @ will survive longer if I stick with pConf but I really really do want telepathy. Now I write it out it seems pretty clear that sticking with pConf is the right play.

ESP is huge. Carry Holhenneth as a swap if you're worried about confusion. ESP prevents so many player errors. rConf is only useful in limited melee situations (and fighting Gorlim and the like, which you are nowhere near strong enough to do.)

Well, I found my stupid thing. Went all John Rambo on the Balrog of Moria, just to see what loot he'd drop. The really (and I do mean really) stupid thing was that he woke up and breathed fire for half my HP so I teleported away, but then instead of just leaving the level like I should have I healed up and went back to see if I could take him. There aren't enough facepalms for that sort of stupidity

You got yourself killed by that poor excuse of a balrog? Shame on you. He should be buffed, he's pathetic.

He is usually not a good target; if you are fire immune, have teleport other charges to spare and are doing 1000 dam/round vs demons, then kill him asap of course, but normally he is best left alone. Chances are his drop wont make up for the invested resources even if the risk of death is negligible.

The balrog of moria is a giant pussy. *Fire and CCW is enough to kill it.

If you wait to have immunity to fire before you fight the Balrog of Moria, then no wonder you think it's harmless. The Balrog's not quite as one-note as the elemental uniques (Vargo, Ariel, et al), but by far its biggest damage output is fire-elemental.

compared to the bigger balrogs, such as Lungortin, Moria is a walk in the park. Slow Monsters, Haste, resistance or !rFire, and it's over. Nothing like fighting Gothmog (where you need a ton of TO for all the stuff he summons) or Lungortin's much bigger damage output.

Sky-
He's native to DL 50. For that level, he's very tough unless you are diving pretty slowly. (Ranger with double resist and branded arrows is the possible exception.)

Despite Sky's contentions and, to my mind unnecessary, ad hominim attacks.... Moria is not hard IF you have the right set-up for that encounter. BUT, like any unique, he is a target of opportunity. If the set-up isn't right, avoid the conflict. The only conflicts that really matter are Sauron and Morgoth. If you've been diving fast, it's quite likely you won't have the right set-up the first time you encounter the Balrog of Moria.
