You should be able to load any 4.2.x file in any 4.2.y version. The usual advice is to save a copy just in case

I'm not surprised summoners are a problem. You have no good way of doing damage. Holy Orb tops out at 83/167 damage, IIRC, and you are carrying a lot of mediocre rods*. Meanwhile you have lousy archery and melee weapons for actually killing anything. What you need is a MoD (HA) or some randart that does real damage with 4 blows.
Just duke it out, healing regularly.

* at depth, you need to be doing 200+ damage with your devices to be worthwhile. That means acid/fire ball, and especially drain life and annihilation. Often wands are better than rods.

Thanks for the precious tips! I'll go search in the dungeon :-)

Imm Cold found, so I got all basic four immunities, which helps a bit. Also dumped least powerful rods.

Question about fifth priest book, Light of Manwe. Does it damage creatures twice, first 250 and then 100? Are these values for monsters that are sensitive to light, or will for example Ungoliant, the Unlight take double damage?

The first is regular light (like light hounds breathe), and will damage anything. The second is weak light (like when you light a room), and only hurts light-sensitive monsters. So Ungoliant will be hurt by both.

Ungoliant will take a lot of damage:
250*4/3+100 = 433!

Thanks for the superb explanation!

So a creature hurt by an element, will take 1,33x damage vs. non-resistant? How about if a creature resists an element?


PS. Ungoliant is dead now
