must ... beat ... estie ..

So, the most peculiar thing happened. Since the last two days, dozens, hundreds of newcomers to the town of Angband have mysteriously been throwing themselves into the lava, with no explanation.

This strange phenomenon went on for over two full days, costing countless lives, until finally a voice was hear, "this will do".

And so, a brave Dunadan Ranger, just as he was on the brink of throwing himself into the fiery lava, turned around and ventured into the dungeon below, in search of fortune, Longbows, and Arrows of Holy Might.



Ep1. How i found a bow of lothlorien x4 (+5,+13) <+4,+2> on DL6

It was just lying there.

HA !!

fight 1v2 both Wormtongue and Lagdulf (for some reason, no escorts?) on DL8 and Wormtongue drops a scimitar +2 INT (probably slay animals) with ESP.
I just need rPois and FA and basically im ready for DL40.

EDIT: i forgot that my bow gives me FA.

I believe he wants to top five off-weapon blows, Estie.

As for characters walking into the lava, I've seen that same thing happen in town. Always rangers, for some reason — it's like they're not even interested in living if there's not a decent randart bow that might come their way someday.

FYI the challenge is DPS vs Evil over speed.

Hmm, are you playing 4.2.1 ? Also, ranged damage doesnt really compare to melee damage and should imo be its own category.

In any case, if older versions and/or ranged damage are allowed, my best entry would be this one (I think):

http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=21130

with

19 Seeker Arrows of Holy Might (4d4) (+18,+26)
Slays undead, demons, evil creatures.
Cannot be harmed by acid, fire.

Combat info:
Hits targets up to 160 feet away.
Average damage/round: 3568.6 vs. undead, 3568.6 vs. demons, 3122
vs. evil creatures, and 2230.2 vs. others.
35% chance of breaking upon contact.

melee-wise it's just not possible.

1. it's rare already to have a big-dice weapon that goes to 11d8.
2. there's no guarantee in 4.1 that it will have slay evil.
3. 3x bonus blow artifacts are exceedingly rare.
