Oh, I forgot to say that I'm not that much experienced at Angband, so everytime I get a really good run going, I start to measure every single step I do...hence why I think it takes so long for me.

I'll try that! I take that an Android Berserker is a pure melee character?

Total inability to use Scrolls, Rods, Staves, Wands, or item activations. About as pure melee as it comes. Even Bows are weak.

And as an android, they level up by equipping better gear, which means they don't even need experience and can start the game off extremely strong just by buying/finding some heavy armor.

Did one and at L1 I ran the Thief Hideout, the reward was a Long Sword of Force, bam!, took me to L8 in the first minute of play.
By the time I was done with the Wargs and Smeagol it was L15 and dual-wielding for ~340 damage a round.
LOL

p.s. It seems to have Easy_ID built in, and from my finds so far I wonder if it doesn't have Luck as well. Fang's collar, a Phial, 2x Excellent bits of armor, and the Long Sword from hell by 500'???

It's pretty amusing with craft magic. Enchant every slot, then when your level goes up max. enchant bonus goes up

LOL Craft magic Android would be almost cheating.

Been dinking around, but here is an Android Berserker I have going. Heading to Dive Angband next. Never played Berserkers or androids, too addicted to the Magics, this is a learning experience.

Yeah, the Android Zerker is fun because you can kill early uniques like Wormtongue in the blink of an eye and then --- if you get lucky --- jump 15 or 20 experience levels if they drop a nice ego or artifact. It's pretty silly!

Word of advice: Don't open chests. You have no teleport, so if you get overcommitted it's curtains, and trapped chests can occasionally summon and haste a large gang of monsters. Chests often contain goodies but I lost a seemingly invincible Zerker when Petshop and a pack of Fenghuangs got summoned all around me and hasted.
