Vault(?) and what to do?

Hello all,

I'm currently working on (preparing to) kill / killing Morgoth with a half-orc Warrior. The current level is a 9-9 (the first time I encoutered a level with both monster and reward level of 9).

The Dlev 35 (see also attachment) contains a vault (?) having:
  • Omarax the eye tyrant
  • Scatha the Worm
  • Two regular Ancient Dragons

What to do? (My first instinct tells me to run like hell - apart from the fact that I have yet to find the entry point).

What kind of file is that ? Save file, text file ? If its a save file, which version of Angband does it belong to ?

It is much easier to comment when there is a ladder dump.

Hi kandrc,

Thanks for posting!

However, the code block does not contain the vault I was wondering about.

The ancient Ds you can probably handle one at a time, unless they're AMHDs. Scatha will not one-shot you, but he's out of your league for now. And Omarax is bad news; you do not want him to get line-of-sight with you. If the vault is a type with granite walls that need to be tunneled out, and you can keep the big baddies compartmentalized, then open the "safe" areas and stay away from the unsafe. If that's not the case, then just leave it be; there will be plenty of other vaults.

Right. That's in your save file. I'm not going to open that. Few to no others will, either. You could take a screen shot and post it. Ideally ASCII. If you post tiles, even other tiles players will not know what they are looking at unless they use the same tile set.

Thats one of the best vault types out there. It has 2 entrances to 2 distinct sub-areas, one in the top left and one in the bottom left. I would dig along the north border up to the top entrance and detect evil there.

There is a diggable path through all of the northern area and in each block are monsters, possibly deadly ones, as well as an entrance to a small cubby in the top left of each cell containing a monster as well as the best treasure items The cubbies can be opened from a hockeystick position, giving you the first move on the monster unless it can double move. Opening the next big cell otoh will always expose you to LOS.

The decision whether to enter and how far in to advance should be made at the vault entrance, after detecting evil and possibly eating the mushroom of second sight, depending on what you detect. Dangerous monsters with speed +20 anywhere are showstoppers; other than that, failure to get the TO rod off can lead to a grizzly death even in hockeystick position.

It is unlikely that you can clear the whole thing, but with a little luck you can make an advance from one or both entrances.

Edit: I checked again and saw that I mistook your staff of dispel evil for detect evil. So you only have 1 shot at detecting; in that case I would keep digging past the northern entrance, down the left border up to the middle, then eat the shroom. That way you get information about all the left side, including the southern entrance area.

With warriors, I carry staves of detect evil prior to ESP and squelch dispel evil staves. Knowing whats ahead is key to successful dungeoneering.

Yeah, _Detect Evil is something you need in a case like this. A checkerboard or bubble vault is too good to pass up. The only really dangerous monster in the list you mentioned is Omarax. He can kill you in a single turn. If you can find a source of double cold resist, Scatha can't hurt you too badly. Otherwise, he does 244 damage with a single resist, so you can handle one breath if teleport away fails.

You don't have enough options to take on that vault. Only 4 CCWs and no temporary speed boost means that you won't stand a chance vs the ancient Ds, even with Gurthang equipped. So just leave that be, you'll get plenty of vaults later on.
