Unexpected drop #2: Dwarf Priest trundling along OODing everything in sight, oh a scroll of acquirement, probably will get a trident of slay orc or something useless.... THE GOLDEN CROWN OF GONDOR! W00t, now we're cooking with gas!

Unlike the prior kobold rogue, this dwarf priest wearing the Golden Crown of Gondor, and wielding the hammer of Aule with Ringil at home, found out the hard way that Osse breathes nether for > 512 HP of damage .

Ouch. He was formerly known as the angel of death, which is more of a giveaway.

Yeah Osse's a badass. Forgot about that somehow. I knew he was tough, but not that tough. Should have skipped him until I had maxed CON. That character was a total winner. I made it through the tough "can't do any significant damage" priest middle period, too, he was really taking off. Worst part was I had Evenstar as a swap but I wore Carlammas for the HP. I had swaps that gave me 612 HP but I wanted 4 swings with Aule .

Worst part is now I'll have to start the frickin' priest all over again. Now I have a score to settle. Priest I find sort of boring with his small # of useful attacks, but the higher level restoration and healing magic is awesome. I love having unlimited mapping. I also found early ESP solving my typical "can't detect enough" issue with priests. Bah.

Repeat after me: "Any monster can kill you. Any monster can kill you."

Osse's not so tough, but he is a dangerous opponent due to his damage output.

unexpected drop of historical significance; The Trident Of Wrath, dropped by Orfax, Son Of Boldor at 1600 feet (level 32).

My third arti drop after Carieth Asdrag and the Hard Leather Armor of Himring. I suppose you could add Firestar which i lost as i had an Elder Vampire on my back and had to leave the level. (playing with Preserve on)

My priests just don't like progressing past clev 40. Inevitably they die because I think I'm pretty tough, but forget that there are baddies that can hit for > 500 (e.g., mana storm). Swapped out my ESP helmet for Serenity Crown, on a 9-9 level after TOing away scores of deep uniques from the massive vault. While wandering the hallways, encountered both unique balrog and Vecna in LoS unhasted unexpectedly, TO'd the balrog but Vecna mana stormed and one-shot'ted me next turn. I had a stack of *Destruction* scrolls that I thought of using, but no, I was looking for the monster that picked up that bow of Lothlorien that gave TK so I could keep the Serenity crown.

There is always another vault. There is always another vault.

That vault gave me both a BoC(HA) and MoD (HA), the Arkenstone (not to useful for priest), and a slew of other great things. Should have taken the goodies and recalled.

Now I am curious, why did you want to wear/keep a serenity crown as priest ?
