Thraalbeast is on a distinguished road
Red face Amazing character but still YASD due to NAsTY monster

For the first time passing dungeon level 90 I felt confident that I could handle the big M soon. With 4x Immunities, 2x banish/mass banish artifacts, High intrinsic speed, the Palantir and what else you can ask for the rest of the game should have been a walk in the park. I had recently killed off the much feared Tarrasque with minimal effort due to the 4x immunities, and with only Omarax, Maeglin, Carcharoth, Kronos, Ancalagon, Sauron and Morgoth left to kill off I was not far from my first win. But alas, I made a fatal strategic decision.

More about the cause of death soon, first - What got me this far? Main thing was diving faster than usual so as to *never* get careless. All previous serious attempts had failed due to me not being observant to what was happening and dying stupid deaths like when a grand master mystic gated in loads of dogs and I checked the few closest (was on laptop so no extra windows were up) and saw they were clear. No problemo, no need for teleport! Right, except only a few steps away were a bunch of much nastier hounds. The most painful death was the time I had found the Great Hammer of Aule early and dealt something like up to 6x 150 hp damage per round at character level 35! But then I failed to notice a small "s" among a bunch of low level monsters. Druj's are the NAsTIEsT monsters in the game in my opinion since I tend to underestimate their power or just fail to notice them.

Anyway, this time I had had problems finding healing potions during the entire game and the few !CCW I bought in town always went quickly. So before taking on the final monsters and Morgoth I decided to start all over from level 1 and go down level by level using the Palantir to map each level, detection rods too in some cases, and only stay enough on each level 1-90 to pick up vital scrolls and potions. Plus raid any vault I would pass. Fast and fun. I thought.
The problem with this strategy was that it made me fast play again. With such a character the first 40-50 levels made me feel invulnerable. So when I finally pressed the down key bam-bam-bam-bam-bam to reach another !Heal I realized too late there was this little annoying "s" in the corner of the room. Oh no, not again. Death.

Great game. Exciting but time consuming. Would like to hear your recommendations for collecting !Healing and such before the final fight?

Play the most recent nightly and you will drown in them :P

Seriously though, horde them to the extent possible the entire game. Did you use any along the way? If you *must* use one to survive you probably shouldn't have been in that situation but I would consider teleport level and *destruction* first.

Starting at dl1 is a mistake. You will not find high-end potions there. Scum dl98 if you must. You probably had enough to take on Sauron. I would kill him as soon as you think it is possible, then you know you are only collecting for one final fight, not guessing how much you'll need for two.

Overlooking drujes...oh yes. More times than I care to remember. Maybe we get a bit too conditioned for too long...and don't register the color of that nastly little s quite quick enough.

From an equipment perspective, at that depth, I might keep Ulmo as my primary, with Eonwe as backup. Yeah, the fact that you died to a nether attack might be coloring things here...but nether attacks are, I think, getting common enough to be more of an issue, and I think I'm more likely to notice a big cold attacker (sounds like the only ones left would be the D's) than perhaps a nether attacker.

Thanks for your feedback!

That makes it two strategic errors then. I thought it made sense to use them during the game but if I had used teleport a bit more and definitely *Destruction* more I would had had no need to start looking for !Healing when I did.

Angband is definitely a game of hoarding -- Healing, *Healing*, Life, Restore Mana, and scrolls of Destruction, Banishment, Mass Banishment, and Rune of Protection all tend to be worth hoarding for the last fight (well, Destruction is sufficiently common that you can use it during normal play too). The trick is that any fight except for the last fight, you can always run away from. But you need to kill Morgoth to win! So the items that help you stick your fights need to be saved for the one fight you need to stick. Otherwise it's better to make your enemy go away, or to run away yourself, rather than burn hard-to-find resources.

The problem with nether resistance, by the way, is that it's unreliable. Nether has a damage cap of 550, but nether resistance might only reduce that to 470 -- or it might reduce it by significantly more (anywhere from 1/7th reduction to 6/7th reduction, IIRC). You can't count on it though, which is what makes having nether resistance not generally a huge priority. It's certainly a common attack later on, mind, and it's handy to have so your hitpoints on average don't get reduced as quickly. But it won't let you stick around when your hitpoints get low.

Oh, I though previous post was right. Better to have nether resist that frost immunity.
I guess you dont agree to that?

It is also slightly possible that you died from the Palantir. I don't think drujs start awake, and it aggravates. You might be better off using it like a rod. Put it on, enlight the level, take it off and don't put it back on until you are sure you are safe. Perhaps wait until you are ready to take the stairs to the next level, and rewield and rest for recharge then.

IMO that's terrible advice. The first post asked how to collect vital potions. Cold immunity is how you protect them!

Nether is a lesser resistance. Cold immunity is at least two qualitative steps better IMO.

Agreed with Eddie (PowerDiver) -- far better to completely negate a fairly common attack whose side-effect destroys vital equipment, than to slightly reduce an uncommon attack whose side-effect drains experience. Who cares about drained experience? Also the damage cap on cold damage is 533 single-resisted, which is barely lower than the damage cap on nether. You can double-resist cold (with a permanent and temporary source -- not with two permanent sources) to drop that to 177, mind, but for the side-effects alone I'd consider cold immunity to be more valuable than nether resistance.

He also had aggravating caesti. Fine for the final fight, but I'd avoid them before that.
