I put a link to my level 41 Indy at the top of the page if anyone's interested. Would appreciate any tips on what level I should be hanging out on or who to avoid, elder Vampires, Enchantress and red L's. are already on there.

I Think this goes to prove that you can do very well in a game without using super gear, I have always liked the idea of playing without artifacts, and have triec to from time to time and plan on doing it again soon. I'm impressed with your progress, I think if you tried a heavier weapon you wouldn't have been able to get so far, as blows per round go down with weapon weight.

i know gorlim, is certainly one unique I dread facing, unless I can do damage quickly. Angamite of Umbar can be dangerous to.
I would think any monster that could summon help can be potentially devasting to you, as your damage potential per round is low. Might be able to equip rings of speed or damage to help out.

The light weight of the whip definitely helps, I still get 5 blows per round after having my stats drained pretty badly. A lesser balrog dropped the boots of Feanor on level 58 so damage has increased quite a bit. The fights are definately more interesting when they last longer ;-) Ill keep an eye out for Gorlim and Angamite thanks for the reply.

Let me add that one monster you want to avoid is the drolem, I had just had one hit me for 500 points of damage because i had no poison resist.

That's one thing Im always paranoid about now, all my other guys are Kobolds. Mage, warrior, rogue, priest, and paladin got burned a few too many times lacking it.

The reference is fairly obvious, but might be a bit too ancient for some of our younger viewers.
