Well, gave up on that idea. I realized I really am playing 4.1.3 in any case. And how is this: Finally found the first speed ring, in a special room at DL 72 (Level feeling 6.) And it is +16! So went from speed 7 to speed 22 in a single turn. (Still only have 613HP, since I had to give up RoCON<+4> to use it.)

Also: Rename Itangast, whose name is very much non-canon. "The Beast of Gondolin" has a nice ring, especially if it comes with a posse of (lesser) Balrogs.

a) Wielding The Longsword Ringil (+22,+25) <+10,+1>
Dropped by an Elder Vampire at DL 84

It took a single speed ring and 2 medium vaults ("Hallway" and "Infinity") to go from pathetic to endgame powerful. Ringil was from a monster in the second one.

Easiest Sauron fight ever, with 2 Rings of Damage, and Ringil doing 660 dam/turn vs evil (Blessed and Berserk.)
4 !CCW, no additional healing of any sort. He got me down to 570 HP at one point, but I reatreated a couple squares back in an ASC, and quaffed CCW. Shield of Hammerhand is excellent in 4.1.3, since it leads to easy stunning. Sauron dropped Thorin, so I have a difficult decision to make. The only easier fight is to use a long hockey stick with Rune as a ranger. (But that is so lame.)
The hardest fight so far *by far* was Maeglin, since he summoned really horrible nasties, and an ASC is mostly useless against him.

Feagwath committed suicide! His first turn, he summoned a Great Bile Wyrm, and that was all she wrote: 1500 damage for thee, but with Thorin, 0 for me. He also summoned a dracolisk, but he was pushed aside, so I didn't even need !rHeat. 2 breaths, and he was done.
I love it when that happens.

Ah, a good run. With my rare standart playthroughs, I havent seen Ringil in a long time.

I hadn't seen Ringil in a very long time either. It is incredibly rare.

Retrospective on a ridiculous level Checkerboard vault at DL 99 is the most ridiculous thing possible. I found 5 endgame artifacts:
* 2 Elven rings (Vilya and Nenya)
* Pick of Erebor
* Trident of Wrath
* Caspanion
And any number of high-powered ego items (not to mention tons of ego ammo!)
* 28 weapons of *Slay Evil*, Holy Might, Extra Attacks, and Gondolin (and almost no other types)
* 3 Pairs Boots of Speed (+9 or better) and one pair Elvenkind (+8)
* Gloves of Thievery and Power.
* 2 caps of ESP
* 2 Shields of Elvenkind, and 1 Dwarven
* 2 Cloaks of Magi
* 5 Dwarven Armor, 3 Elvenkind (and 3 resistance, bah!) One of the Dwarven is adamantine, for 107 AC!
* Amulets of Magi, ESP, WEaponmastery.
* 7 dungeon spellbooks

And yes, the destruction of Feagwath was a bit of an anticlimax after all that (he had blinked out of the vault when I first met him) but it is still fun when you can get another monster to do most of the work.

Uniques killed:
* 2 big Balrogs, with Gloves of Eol as a swap
* Cantoras (Dropped the Trident of Wrath.)
* Feagwath (just after clearing the vault.)
* Now to hunt down the two dragon uniques, and maybe the dogs. With 4 immunities available, I can take them all for a change. Not so sure about the Tarrasque, as Ringil isn't so good against it (nor against Huan for that matter), but I could pick up the Trident, which would do 700+ damage against both of them.

Was about to take on Morgoth, and saw one more huge vault. Since I am able to get all 4 immunities (Vilya + Narya + Eol + Thorin) , I took on Ancalagon and Glarung, who took 1 heal each. Glarung combined with a great wyrm of Ice managed to create a new kind of ASC, first by breathing fire and creating a lot of lava, then a frost breath.

Stand between two blocks of passable rubble, and you suddenly become a Paladin in "Single Combat" mode.
