Yea my heal stuff is way too low.. been saving my *heals* but grabbing some of those this run... to back off these levels and go back a little. I need to find a P pit I think...

It’s probably cause I am running around with 170 AC in DL 50+

I have could up it 200AC with multi hued armor, but lose -4 speed this artifact armor provides. My equipment provides 11 speed atm.

Does anyone know what is hitting me and reduces my charges ? I swear someone thing hits me and my charged items are losing charges. Is this items being destroyed and I am getting the least amount of charges or something.

Went down a few levels and found some P/H pits and doing better for tomorrow. Changing gear helped my resists/AC at the cost of 4 base speed. Some is coming back! Still a ton to remember ..

obviously something invisible. You need a ring of SI.

As for *what* is hitting you, some stupid monster added in 4.2 by Nick, surely.

Nothing resists time

This thing all things devours:
Birds, beasts, trees, flowers;
Gnaws iron, bites steel;
Grinds hard stones to meal;
Slays king, ruins town,
And beats high mountain down.

Have you been meleeing liches? Or Balrogs?
If so, that's a very silly thing to do.

or certain human uniques? But liches are indeed the usual suspect here. All of them drain charges, and they're pretty common.

I have fought a lesser balrog just to see how I would do..liches seem come up quite often. I encounter grand master mystics far more often than I would like too.. if thats the guy. Otherwise the only
Unique person I keep bumping into summons the Phoenix as his go to move so I scoot out of there.

Last night right before I crashed I walked around a corner and bam time hounds everywhere. Must have been tired cause I swore I used staff of detection, but might have been walking around on a 6-8 level... a bit too fast./playing tired Anyhow .. low hit point warning ! Oh shoot really low 200ish hit points. I stepped away and then fled and recalled back home before calling it night. I still have aether hounds coming up? Yikes. Anything else I should be avoid dl60-70s that I might not remember. Playing super risk adverse now

(I love fighting summoners who summon more summoners as a note)

The main point is: if you see the message "energy drains from your pack", you are losing charges. It means you can't face M and S with staves or wands in melee, and for other such monsters, either avoid them, or hide your devices before beginning battle. (An extra 2 squares in an antisummoning corridor is enough, so long as you don't back up.)

Isn't it sometimes risky to drop the staves near the battlefied? The balrog breathes fire, those staves are lost for sure.
