This just got interesting!!!

Hello all,

I just found a Sling of Buckland +2 +2 on the floor at 150 feet!!!

Code:
a Sling of Buckland (x4) (+11,+17) <+2>
     Found lying on the floor at 150 feet (level 3)
     
     +2 dexterity.
     +2 shooting speed.
     +2 shooting power.
     Cannot be harmed by acid, fire.
Has anyone found one any shallower?
This could be game breaking...

This Half-Troll Rogue is my final class to winning with every class for Half-Troll race (4.1.3 and below).

Wish me luck,
old_school

I found one at a similar depth. At first I had no idea quite how powerful it was and wasn't that excited. I fired a few rounds pebbles and was one-shotting nearly everything. I don't think I bothered wielding a melee weapon until I died a predictable poison resistance hole death at clvl40.

That sling is literally a machine gun

That is the most ridiculous equipment list I have ever seen. Just a torch and a machinegun (and whatever junk melee weapon you happened to be using when you found the sling.)

It might have been Morgoth's Ass, if I weren't such a dumbass...

Haha bad luck. It's a shame you weren't blasting the hydra with your sling and a few shots of frost

I was, then he healed when I phased into a destruct zone and was digging out... If the spear wasn't branded with cold also, I would have never considered melee and gotten below poison breath damage.

Or, I could just have avoided him. But what's the fun in that?

I will post all of my Half-Troll winners once I finish this last class - Rogue.

Yikes. I rarely fight that thing at all, and never in melee. Especially with even a handful of ammo that does nominal 540 damage vs animals.
Even then: you surely would have survived longer with temporary fire and poison resistance from Scarabtrices! Those buffs are a no brainer!
