IkkeP the hobbit Rogue

So, IkkeP, the fifth try, does very well. Clearing one amazing vault now. Covering almost all resists, doing reasonable damage

But i like him, might try to clear all uniques with this one

Any advice?

Easiest combo in the end. picking of vaults without anyone waking up makes it laughable. 'Q's ans 's'-druj the only ones that can irritate you buy summoning baddies or teleport you away (before you manage to do the same to them :P ).


Anyway:

time for IkkePi.

I think a Mage is in order; being low on hp in the endgame is my worst fear.. which race to choose?

Nicely done! A mage is quite different to play. Eventually ridiculously powerful but getting there is not so easy. I have a few wins but no mage win yet. That is my target once the beta testing of v4 is completed.
For race, I'd say High Elf is as close you can get to "easy". But even as a High Elf, low hp will be an issue until way into the game. Gnomes are slightly better with devices so if you plan to stack up on wands of annihilation and such, that would be a good choice too, but with even less hp than the High Elf mage. [Damage on wands increase with your device skill, but this is not very visible while in the game]

They're a lot more viable than you'd think! I mean, sure, their casting early on is pretty poor for a mage, but it's still totally usable, and they have a huge leg up on the "ordinary" mage races when it comes to compensating for the mage's classic weaknesses. Most mages have to get +CON on practically every equipment slot and half-trolls have more leeway...at the cost of needing a bit more +INT gear instead.

In general, I find that races that compensate for their class's weaknesses are better than ones that emphasize their strengths, unless their weaknesses are in things that don't matter for the class (c.f. Half-Troll Warriors being fantastic).

And what about dwarves? good device skill, quite good HP only slight INT penalty?

I think Halfttroll is too far pushed

So I guess dwarf or High elf, but I find the xp penalty so big!

For challenge: Elf mage.

You will find that good INT doesn't matter if your CON and STR are abysmal.
