Chcknflylice: I still don't know the answer to that question. Seems half the time I go with Resistance and the other half I go with the PPA. I suppose it also depends on my depth and my current AC. The lower my depth, the more the correct choice is PPA. The deeper you are, the more correct choice moves to the Robe. If my AC is really low and I'm DL30 and I have decent CON I might take the PPA. But if my AC is already good, and I have no base resistances, then the robe may be the way to go. I guess by around DL36 you really want to have the base resistances. I'd say if I was DL34 or deeper I would definitely pick the Robe if I have no other base resists.

That seems like the right answer. I am still pretty low in the dungeon and at this point nothing is really hitting hard with the base elements. Doubling my AC seemed the way to go at this point.

So Noreth Sr. dies to my 5 year old (let her move the keys around and [of course] she doesn't stop when I tell her to) trying to kill a ghoul without FA. Letting her play and trying to learn is more important than living though.

Noreth Jr. is a lucky boy however. After the hardest fought DL11 1-8 feeling (Lagduf, Brodda, and Wormtongue) we find an amulet of ESP <+6>! Talk about out of depth. It was surrounded by traps as well but get even more lucky and dodged a trap door.

I am certain to die soon....

I found a crown of the Magi with Telepathy very early once (DL12 maybe?) and crash dove to my death. I thought I could easily take an Ogre Chieftain and he let me know differently.

Maybe create an @ just for your 5 year old to start out with so that your promising Noreth Jr. doth not fulfill your prophecy?

Hah yes.... that is probably what I will have to do considering thinds are actually going quite well.

Cleared first medium vault last night with YMH Dragon inside. Having no basic elemental resists except cold, I decided that the risk wasn't worth it. But after finding a LMS of Res and a set of artifact boots (with telepathy ) I felt that I had the right equipment to take it on. Vault yielded nothing that I could equip but I will take a potion of augmentation and 2 STR potions.

Fairly OOD at this point and hoping my risk will be rewarded soon with either some speed or an ego weapon. Using a MG of Slay Demon atm and its hitting hard but with my Str and Dex getting higher the extra blows I will start getting soon with heavier weapons will start to close that gap. I'm thinking..... a nice branded randart or something of gondolin or west (with some nice stat augmentation or resists) would be really nice.

Well... no ego weapons but I have found 2 artifact weapons..... with no resists, slays, stat augmentation, +s, or even a good activation. Using a dagger of extra attacks (+1+5) <+1> but being a warrior at DL43 only doing 135 dpt isn't going to cut it. I think I'm getting close to the end of its usefulness.

Medium vault on a 6-9 feeling. I can see a Great Storm Wyrm that is about 20 levels ood and an acient blue dragon so that's not so bad but I don't have any charges left in my To. It looks like the vault is split into 4 parts by walls so I am going to try and clear the other 3 parts and leave the GSW for last. I might be able to kite him out and phase around till I can teleport away then come around the back side.

Kite successful. Went straight for him lest my limited supply of PD or TS get used up in the other fighting. He is safely out of the vault and I'm in.... lets see what we get.

Ok. A nice shield with FA and +2 DEX which frees up my hands for something better when it comes along and a SOS of extra attacks (+10+15) <+2>. Boots of speed as well but only +5 but seeing that its the only speed boost I have I will take it gladly.

Good luck! Maybe post some photos of your shenanigans with the G-Storm Wyrm.

I thought about it but I don't know how to post larger pictures on here. Every time I do they are too small to really see. By the way it was, actually, a shenanigan because I lured him away then TS but the only way to get back to the vault was to tunnel through a lot of granite to come around the backside. He eventually got back to me but I had already cleared out the vault.

The pics are big enough when you click on them, otherwise, they only show as a thumbnail.
