Mania is gone - yay! The worm that breathes cold was a problem - tele had to be used a few times and 2 very annoying chaos vortexes dealt with first. Max cold breath hurts! (With cold res). Need to start carrying my res potions.

The necro king was a joke - he popped up in a corner and died in 4 rounds. Dragon father himself not hard - his friends had to tele away a few times.

Wyrms of ____ showing up now - thankfully I get in a couple swings to kick down their hp first!

Several arts - most notable fingolfin (yes!) and feanor (amazingly, I dont really need them since I had +10 spd boots, and now +31 with. But every bit helps).

Really need nether not on a xp drain ring!! Better source of poi res would help too.

The random arts are nice, i've used 3 or 4 - still have a cloak on.

And that dagger.

So, he cleared a massive undead pit on dlv71. After killing 20+ G, and having to tele several times, Xor found a new best friend. Then he introduced all the G's to it.

Scroll of Genocide.

G's being mainly 3 different dreads. Summon each other plus nether lances. Oh how I love genocide.

He must have killed over 100 undead, plus the scroll. And Saruman. And not 1 art, despite the obscene amount of loot! 300k in au alone!

He's plvl 75 now, 85 sw, 75 dodge, 90 sr, and 26 dis which I wish I could take off.

Ive officially found the stupidest monster. Hand druj. ALL it does is tele away. Despite its monster description (which lists darkness and curse you/equip), that is literally it. Nothing else. Whats the point?

After careful thought, decided to go with 85 sw/100 dodge/94 sr for my assault at the #1 score.

From earlier observation, seems +sw and +sr as skill are only 1/5(!!!!!!) as effective as items. I mean, Xor has heroic throwing!! And legendary shooting with NO skill. Saving throw is what clued me onto this. The x5 seems to be spot on as to how items work. So elendil is same as 10 sv skill. Fingolfin would be same melee boost as 50!!!! sw. Makes skills almost meaningless? But, dodging has no equip to boost it. Just dex and how much weight and shield/no shield. So, I went with it.

His equip currently gives +20 sv and +36 skill (48 w/ com ring). Which for skill boosts him up a ton compared to sw. May not be 5 to 1 but certainly isnt 1 to 1. So, dodge won out. So far, its nice say, dodging all 3 blows of a dracolisk (he did).

I feel like some of my predecessors on the ladder.

Would KILL for luthien or himring right now!! I have no nether source except ring, and only caspanion for poison. I have all this nice equip to throw on but cant because of those 2 resists. Poison not essential except drolems have shown up. Nether IS essential.

Wow dlv81 was fun. Ren and the lich sorcerer, and a gang of master liches, and 3 living tornados. Only the uniques are not edge res. Argh! And, ran out of tele scrolls, and, cmw staff now wants to fail all the time. But, xor made it through. Thanks to a master lich summoning him to return away from the stupid tornados

No arts at all from them. Still need nether and poison res.

Its interesting that most uniques are MUCH easier than their escorts for xor, and have been the whole time. He gets ahold of a unique and its just a matter of slugging 5-8 rounds.

A highlight. A greater Q summoned me to return. Okay, take 3 swings and die! :-)

Just spent an hour redoing his equip after getting nenya from an acq scr! Town has, I buy. Plus several from drops.

Also got eowyn, even better for xor than nenya. He actually isnt wearing narya at the moment - he needs stats from tulkas. Can swap if needed. So all res now except sound/disenc. Hell, everything green except them. Stats are sick - str/dex/con maxed, int 180 and wis 190. Art amulet would be nice, as would a better cloak. Using the one he has strictly for dex. So hard to get that stat. Well, fingolfin got replaced by superior randart gloves but they lack dex. Will post dump. Suggestions welcome on his gear.

Skills - starting to regret dodge over sw, forgot about drop in status as you go deeper. Oh well. 46 speed takes care of that lol. Soooooooo overkill but its his best gear. 50 with both RoP equipped.

Hes been lucky, but I also have cleaned out a lot of good levels and heavily invested in shops. Still only armor sources of poison res though (or ring). So not totally lucky.

Id prefer luthien or himring over eowyn, honestly. There are better swords.

Luthien off great storm wyrm (dlv83). Soooo nice. :-) That pretty much completes my equip. Also now have the palantir. I might swap back to the other lantern for the sr. Not sure yet. I have esp on the crown - which I kept on for fear and chaos.

Just noticed I lack fire res with luthien on - but I have the fire imm sword so on that will go. So really all I need is a better helm since mine is now redundant. Hammerhand is also redundant.
