Meanwhile, I tend to recommend the opposite: a half-troll warrior. Damn the torpedos, full speed ahead! You may well die quickly from an undetected monster, but getting a new character to the deeps is very fast.

Hmm ... i find half-orc rogue to be the easiest class to level up. And maybe half-orc warrior.
On 4.1.3 then half-orc blackguard is really all you need to win. Maybe. Depends on the shield bash nerf, i havent played in 5 months.

Mage is the class i most easily die with when high level; tele self, gravity hounds, #ded.

Dunedain Ranger 4.1.2 or earlier is the easiest win character: buy 40 CLW, 10 food, and 5 Mage1. Grind DL5~10 until you find a red worm mass.
Drop your recall scrolls, let them breed, kill 3000 of them. BAM! CL20+ and double bow damage.

Buy a longbow of power, and you are ready for morgoth.

Oh, ugh. Farming is just a hopelessly boring way to level up (if you must farm, use black oozes to get a bit of loot out of the process.)
You are better off using magic devices to do damage. A few light rods will take out tons of trolls and orcs.

What are the chances of this:

Dagger of *Slay Animal* (+3, +7) <+2>:
Dropped by a battle-scarred veteran in town

+2 intelligence
Slays animals
Speeds regeneration


I did not bring that up from deep and drop it for him. He really had it

That's pretty good, and not at all common! Reminds me of the time that Farmer Maggot dropped a Holy Avenger dagger for me. I still remember it, 20-odd years later.

Wow, I did not know townspeople could carry things better than 24gold pieces or scrolls of darkness.

Farmer Maggot has a guaranteed good drop (=at least armor with a plus to AC).
He can be killed even at very low level, but it takes a while; it's maybe the only situation where I recommend holding a key down, and even if you do that when he's at one star he'll start running away and circling through stores.
