First win for 4.2.2

http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=24525

Besides the RNG throwing me like 3 boots of speeds in dlvl20-30 or so, and giving me x4s on all shooters for a ranger, was pretty lackluster randart-wise. Lights were especially atrocious, not even any basic light activates. :X

Tried all forms of shooters with the changes to ammo/ranger spell. I think crossbows due to the bolts probably need that x5/x6 shooter to shine as an option, didn't come across any of those. Slings of Buckland x4s are now crazy good long term options as well, as unless you screw up you won't lose the ammo. I ended up with the bow for most of my end-game, though used pillar dancing quite often.

No crazy close calls, but the initial jump into 90s was scary as heck for a couple runs. A few ?tlvl and ?destructions had to be used to escape during that time.

Morgoth succumbed otherwise quite comfortably, but 4 -TO is cutting it close. I think I had to use at least 4 times non-optimal way of resetting the situation due to lacking those TO charges. Ran out of ?Mass banishes partly because of that. Mental note, at least 5 in the future ...

Also forgot my _destruction at home, oops, so resetting the battlefield was suboptimal and some of the summons would have been much nicer if I had remembered the staves, as I did end up having a lot of empty space a few times. I think I did only 3 area resets, as was worried would run out of scrolls.

PS. Zero greater vault clears. Only a few middling vaults. I'll play a bit more end-game chars to see how it goes, but based on that, I feel good about planning to change gear floor drops from vaults to be in the mobs.

why were you using the sling of buckland instead of the artifact bow ?

Was carrying it just in case all my arrows would die in the fight. Morgoth went to mid 1 star in the end, and I ran out of the arrows in my quiver, so instead of TO decided to swap and finish with sling.
