Thanks, that's pretty much what I was thinking.
It's just that I'm getting a little bored waiting for those two resists to show up. I'll take it easy at 2000' for now and see where things are once I've gained another level.

Found Holhenneth now, but HP are still horrible. I've slowed right down for now, only dropping 50' per character level gained, and recalling to sell stuff whenever I get slowed below +5 unhasted.

A difficult choice

See updated dump, link in first post.

I'm not very experienced with mages and I'm uncertain how deep I should be at the moment. Stealth and speed are pretty good for this depth, firepower is decent with 0% fail on Rift, and HP are tragic.

It seems I have three options.

A) Sit tight and pray for Calris which is in depth and would boost HP but also aggravates.
B) Dive 'as is' and invite instakills from Nether breathers.
C) Give up 5 speed to wear Dal-i-thalion, then try to dive at +3/+13.

I'm leaning towards Option C.

Hmm, I think I'd go for c) here and then once you've got a few more STR pots, swap the STR ring for a CON ring to get those HPs up...

Then again, with cautious detecting and judicious use of TeleAway, you might be OK to about 2450' without RNether (too many nether breathers/bolters after that)...

Thanks for the advice, Seany.
It feels uncomfortable playing a character with such a glass jaw, and I'm getting a little paranoid.

Heh, that's what diving is all about. IMHO rnether is overrated (especially if you have hold life) - you can only count on it protecting you from 14% of the damage, which is really not much.

I would continue to dive without rnether and see what happens. Sitting around waiting for a particular artifact is a recipe for death-by-boredom-induced-carelessness.

Good luck,

I'm wearing the artifact boots, but at least I'm diving again after my earlier fit of the heebie-jeebies. Currently at 2700' and in my last session I managed to bag a few kills at 10,000+ XP each, including an Ethereal Dragon. I hate those things.

I just went down to 2800'. There's a GCV in it. There's a Long Sword (4d5) in it, as well as all manner of stuff I can't possibly handle. Time to die...

Well, that turned out to be a lot less dangerous than I thought. Let's hear it for Teleport Other! The vault had Ringil AND Cubragol, as well as Gondor and Celeborn and other stuff besides. In the words of Hannibal Smith, "I love it when a plan comes together".
