[YASD] Half-Troll Warrior lvl 14 died from Umber Hulk

So, it was a Half-Troll warrior level 14. Nothing special. But met an Umber Hulk. I thought he would not confuse me at each turn, but... Initially, I used potions of cure light wounds. But used up all of them. Additionally, confusions from Umber Hulk can stack. So one potion of cure light wounds was not enough to cure confusion. And there was a ranger came out of nowhere. Hulk ran away, but leaved me with 22 HP. So the Ranger killed me. Any advices on Half-Troll Warrior? I was dealing 30.4 dmg/round on average. There should be a file dump somewhere, but I'm playing Android version and not able to find where it is

A HT warrior shouldn't have any trouble, but healing is the wrong way to go. Just attack the hulk while confused until it flees. It doesn't have much HP. Then you can heal, and finish it off when you return.

But it is always better to get it with archery or devices, using ?phase and illumination to kill it from a distance.

Mostly what Pete said, but if you are lucky enough to have a ring of acid, balling a wall will splash them if you are in a confined space. Confusion is less of a problem for devices when every direction still hits.

Probably I've just attacked Hulk at the end and He flied away because of low HP, but there was also a Ranger and Hulk leaved me with 22 HP. Maybe there was a way, but I just tried to attack ranger while confused (he was adjacent to me) and died.

If you'd saved your healing til after the hulk left, you'd have been ok. But what you want to do is use ?phase the moment the hulk gets adjacent, before even a single turn of melee.

Edit:
Later you'll see Ethereal Dragons and Titans. With those you really don't want to mess around, especially as a Ht warrior. The only escape is _Teleport, and the fail rate is very high when confused. Both monsters can put out a lot of damage in little time. And Ethereal dragons are invisible passwall monsters--very, very dangerous.

For some reason I thought I cannot do any damage while confused

Oh lol. I have a had a potion of berserk strength in my inventory. But I thought it will only add strength. (But actually it restores 30 HP). I have had a feeling a should use potion of berserk strength. It is strange I didn't use it anyway.

Yeah, Hummerhorn is lethal if you let it get away from you. (So are Neekerbreeker and Firefly.) Everyone loses at least one character to these monsters. The defense :
* run away and close the door if you see them breeding.
* carry a staff of teleportation. It should always be your first major purchase.
* shoot them before they breed
