Warrior - what to carry

I need to stop carrying around so much stuff that it makes me slow -1. Any advice on what to ditch?

http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=11232

I'll take advice on clearing out the home too, but I've got several ideas of what to clear out from there.

Just a quick FYI: you're not running the latest version. That's fine -- given gameplay changes people might prefer just about any version of Angband over any other -- but I wanted you to know that 3.2 is available now.

From your inventory, you can ditch:
* Rod of Curing
* Staff of Dispel Evil (just waste this on the next troll pit you see)
* Amulet of Wisdom (not really worth carrying as a swap, even though Turmil covers regen)

That's not all that much really. Your main problem weightwise is your equipment. Particularly Wrath and the plate armor are both really heavy. But it's not like you have good swaps for either. You could consider ditching Turmil; it's really down to how likely you think you are to need its cold immunity. It's not that helpful compared to fire/acid immunity; cold attacks aren't all that common.

From your home, you don't really need:
* Scroll of Dispel Undead (these items are traps; you never want to get into LOS of large numbers of undead, and the damage is puny)
* Gorlim. The combat bonuses are not worth the penalties.
* Halberd of Westernesse

Otherwise you're looking pretty solid to me. I usually carry a bit more phase door, and you don't seem to have any recall ability (I usually buy up to 5 scrolls in town), but everything else in inventory is reasonably justifiable.

I forgot to check to see if the latest version is in the Ubuntu standard packages when I started a new character. Thanks for the heads up on dispell undead. I was thinking it was a banish type effect, not a damage effect.

Also, I dropped some extra recall in the dungeon and hadn't restocked when I dumped the character. Although I could see where that would make it look like I'm tromping up and down the stairs up and back

... and for the love of God find some permenant speed. It's a wonder you're still alive. The problem isn't that your speed is (-1), the problem is that it isn't (+5), or even (+10).

Back in the old days, you wouldn't expect to find any speed until the mid-3000s. He'll be fine so long as he's careful.

It isn't. It's sitting at mentors.debian.net, waiting for a sponsor to upload it. If anyone knows any Debian Developers looking to sponsor *band packages, please send them my way.

I've found Bronze DSM and the phial since i posted, so those both help with weight. I had to put the gauntlets of free action back on, but that was a worthwhile trade to get rConf.

I'd hold out for Leather Boots. The arch support on sandals is terrible .
