There are some more. !Detonations,?curse weapon. Obligatory sticky curse items are pointless in V after the first one of any flavor found, since at that point the curse rune is known (and heavy or permanent curse share the same rune in V, just as level 1, 2, or 3.) V curses work differently for a reason.

Whew, that was close. Evil Iggy kept coming back while I made my way across the dungeon to an unidentified ring at DL 84. Wham! Plasma bolt! Wham! Ice bolt! He knocked me down below 300 twice, once catching me off guard at +4 speed. I used up all my heal. But I finally made it to the ring: Speed +7! Base speed is now 11, which means I am as fast as most monsters when hasted. (NPP has a ton of monsters above +10 speed, far more than V.) That said, I now have problem: I'd been swapping a ring of rNether and Damage (now up to +17--one place NPP is generous.) With speed and CON, swapping becomes problematic.

I lost that game to save file corruption, alas. So I started a new one in 0.5.4, otherwise the same. And I am having a brutal time of it. Down to DL 33, CL 26, and I still
* have no free action
* have no extra damage beyond the weapon.
* am using a (+4,+6) sling. Fortunately the sling gets extra damage and now, finally, an extra shot. But still the total damage is pretty low.
* have pieced together rBase (from rings, amulet)
* have found no artifacts, not even the Phial.
And I recently lost a quest after my only TO got destroyed by an electricity vortex.

I have a quest to kill 15 black Ds... with a clvl 30 character and less than 200HP

Pete, are you comfortable with the current way to select items in stores? Im tempted to change it to command first, then selection. Like V

It took some getting used to. V is actually a hybrid, where you can pick the object first or second. I think this is a good model.

Please update the app. This is my attempt to bring the hybrid item selection to NPP

@Cuboideb--
What kind of archery damage can you do? Black D is extremely limited in breath damage, between the armor reduction of 1/2 and NPP's addition of !rAcid. The max damage is 1/18 nominal in this way, or 1/6 with just armor--either 15HP or 50HP. The latter is problematic with just !CCW. But the former is harmless.

I'll update.

I survived the quest! I used a combination of melee and sling (HE brigand). I had just a bunch of !RAcid, so my main strategy was to use a staff of speed, then dropping it along with the scrolls of recharging and WoR.
I had to use TO several times and my HP went to 0 once.
Completed the quest, got a light crossbow of accuracy...
When you get a quest for D's, it's time to stop taking quests!

NPP still uses v 3.0 model for pricing, but even with that a bow of accuracy isn't worth much. I don't understand how NPP calculates quest value.
