All classes can do it...

You would need some skill in summoning and some skill in corpse preservation to make it work properly.

If you want to do it "professionally" then play a Summoner.

Go here for more info...

Started such a Troll, selected Spectre to avoid digging issue. Died of starvation because I must have accidentally destroyed my tome of water when making room for stuff.

I guess that I must do a classical Troll, may I wrong ? Is It allowed to make a mutant troll for example ?


This Troll priest is very interesting but I am getting out of piety very fast. How to win some ? There is no specter and ghost near starting point.

It doesnt tell anything about subrace, so I assumed there was no restriction. However, unless you know exactly what your doing, you may be best off picking classical. (Note two things: 1. My troll wouldnt have died from starvation if he had been classical, because he could have eaten meat from a monster corpse and 2. the death fate for level 16 was unpleasant; a classic troll probably wouldnt have gotten it.)

As for piety, you get some for charming animals and it doesnt matter if they are hostile or already charmed. So find a group of them and keep casting charm animal (radius 1), preferably before you go into a dungeon and start loosing piety. Cheap, but effective

Cool, I love to be a mutant

Ok thank you for your piety's advice.

--> Well, Charm cost 11 piety's points and make me win two piety's point. So your technique doesn't work at level 1... I guess I must kill some monster before and increase spirituality and monster-lore

Yes, you need to gain some levels first; I usually get ~15 in the marsh south of Bree. Also, make sure the spell has radius 1. Charming only 1 animal wont return more piety than you invest.

Yavannah is a difficult deity to gain piety points with. Expect to go severely negative initially. In the mid to late game is where you will reap the rewards.

I posed no restriction on what type of Troll, so you could play Classical or Vampire or whatever.

Zizzo has created a skill point programme with which you can test your allocation of skill points for ANY combination of race and class (warning: this includes combinations that are not available in the game)

A very useful skill point allocator!

Go here to get it.

So I started a second Troll:
http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=8341

Havent found a single dungeon town, though I have searched everywhere except for the illusory castle (hate that place).

Funny how I found a very similar randart cloak again. Currently doing Mordor, but tried to tackle Trone since his coat would fit me nicely

However, he proves difficult. I tried:

1. setting my old friend Gandalf on him, but he stood no chance and I dismissed him when he was at 1 star. Guess hes getting old...

2. preparing a room with nevermoving pets and luring Trone in. Trone tore through drujs, deathmolds and greater Qs without getting scratched.

3. the voidgate jump game; didnt work because hes too fast. Im only at +10 base speed, +20 buffed with adrenaline channeling.

Anyone got a good idea ?

So that part is delayed for now, till I have enough hit points to survive a darkness breath.

I have played her like a mindcrafter sofar, waiting to see what FF had to offer. But FF was stingy, if I dont get 0.5 in symbiosis or archery soon Ill probably just pump weaponmastery, get the extrablows and melee with waterbite-enhanced magestaff, since pulverize doesnt cut it against the likes of Trone. Back to my princess quest for undead beholders...
