I've seen how some people seem to be able to get through the game very quickly descending to depths that I've only ever dreamed about getting to and even winning in a very short (to me) amount of turns. How is this possible because when ever I try to do anything remotely similar I always end up having to run for my life. What are the stratgies for such a quick win?

If you want specific tips then it would be helpful to know what version of Z you're playing. There are some pretty big differences, particularly in the wilderness, depending on version. Also, are you using plain old ZAngband or the newer Z+?

In general the answer to your question is that players who descend quickly spend most of their time running for their lives. Stealth and detection are extremely important skills to have - you want to avoid all unexpected monster encounters. Fight only on your own terms. Don't engage any monster unless the reward is great and the risk is (relatively) low.

Also, it often takes years of practice. Sometimes decades. The good news is Zangband we'll still be there.

My problem is I get bored on the levels where I can easily kill things....and often the loot isn't that good. I'm currently down at about level 50 but for being half way through thre dungeon I can't say it's fantastic.

At what level does the loot start to get decent? I mean obviously having read other messages I get that near the bottom the loot is fantastic, but obviously I'm not skilled enough to survive that...

Any suggestions???
