Finds...

DL8 Mughash drops the ring, 'Celindo':

<+4> Strength
<+3> Wisdom
<+2> Dexterity
<+3> Constitution
<+2> Speed
<+1> Light

Provides Immunity to lightning, cold.
Provides resistance to acid, light, nether, disenchantment {??}
Provides protection from fear, stunning.
Slows metabolism. Feather Falling.

On DL26 a dark elven lord drops an amulet of the magi.

On DL36 I find a cursed ring of damage (+0,+8) with lightning vulnerability and +20AC and rShards; perfect for when you just happen to have immunity to lightning . Although it occasionally turns skin to stone as well.

On DL43, unprotected; just hanging out in an empty room, a certain body armor [60, +22]. I could get used to this.

Right after finding it I nearly die taking on Waldern. He proves much more difficult than I expected despite my healthy AC and immunities. I've finally almost defeated him when another Elemental spoils my fun. At least she was easier to kill despite moving very quickly: https://youtu.be/HPrP25CNUDM#t=40m12s

The fights are kinda long, but interesting parts were:

Does this thing even work?: https://youtu.be/HPrP25CNUDM#t=47m38s

We've got company but I don't even notice: https://youtu.be/HPrP25CNUDM#t=49m23s

Where'd he go?: https://youtu.be/HPrP25CNUDM#t=51m25s

The start of the video is pretty interesting, too, for how I go about dealing with some dangerous dragons. https://youtu.be/HPrP25CNUDM

One thing I've definitely learned about Angband by now is that the rarity of an object is not always correlated to how powerful it is. Or at least, Angband doesn't think gauntlets of power are a powerful item, as I found decent ones on DL16 with a 3-3 feeling. (+3, +2) <+3>

In other news, my last far reaching character died sillily (whoah, that's actually a word???) anyway, he found a ring of power with the following activation: bestows upon you Berserk, Bless and Resistance. I kid you not. I guess there is no limit to what an activation can do! But that is a pretty boss activation.

In other other news, I've discovered throwing bolts is just as effective as shooting pebbles with a sling. Been playing half-elf warriors and I really like the combo for its decent ability to shoot/throw as well as hit. I miss native regen, but oh well; still really fun to kick butt right out of the gate!

Yes, throwing bolts does the same average damage of 3 as a sling with pebbles. But flasks of oil do 7 average damage, and iron shot 5, so the point is somewhat moot. And yeah, that is a ridiculous activation.

Not really moot; I save 150gp gold not having to buy a sling (assuming a sling or bow are available). I buy 40 bolts and get the best value for the money in terms of dealing damage for leveling up 6+ character levels. That 150gp goes far in buying more ?phase and !CLW.
