Every. Single. Time. I play a non-half-orc Necro.

OK, now making an I Will Not Use Invoke Spirits Even Once run.

Any reason for your choice of hobbit as a race? I don't have much experience of ironman but I would have thought the low hit dice would have been a problem (though the +2 con must help counteract that in the early game.)

Back past the D25 line again in Ironman, yet again with a Hobbit burglar. GO TEAM HOBBIT BURGLARS!

Mixing it up a little this time, with Slings replacing Throwing (will make it nicer to run a throwing half-troll later on), Weaponthingy replacing Armor Forging, and dropping Infusion to see how badly it stunts my forges... hopefully not TOO badly! In any case, this design is a little more streamlined, so if I can get half-decent resistance coverage without forging I might be a bit better off.

Whoa-oa, we're halfway the-ere, whoa-oa, we're living on a prayer. Erm, on a horror-inducing dark ritual.

As always, I have more luck than brains.

Current problem: chose to drop rConf to make room for Thorin.

Still trying to decide whether to dive slowly so as to pick up a maximum of chunks and of collectible potions and rods, or just dash on and be done with it. Going middle ground so far (not skipping levels, not using Alter Reality either). The vision of making my D75 dump did help move me forward. :-)

Missed your question, NotMorgoth.

Hobbits have some endgame troubles but if worse comes to worst they can metamorphose by that time... or they can stay and benefit from the highest total non-CHA stat bonuses in the game and from all the high thief-skill aptitudes, although the latter are not quite relevant enough to make it a clear choice in favor of staying. Meanwhile in the grueling Ironman opening, a throwing Hobbit has excellent surival power, especially since they start with enough Perception to find doors easily, thus avoiding at no XP cost the problem of opening up the whole of each of the early levels before continuing to the next.

None of which stopped me from going Gnome for this Necro run. :) A shame really as I hate to repeat races and I wanted to go Gnome for a Device-only run someday, but I may just forget about that, as Device-only is even more tedious than Ironman.

Looking good. You want an elven ring, and then you'll be fine for the end-game. Though you probably want to clear out as many uniques as you can.

Your resist holes are covered very precisely -- how has infusion been working out for you?

Also, I see you have fireproof books. How hard were they to come by?

On 31.3.2011 09:08 Bostock wrote:
The game's supply of essences is still small and its supply of chunks is still large enough that for the most part, the shotgun approach outperforms infusion. I took it mostly out of fear that with the new changes forging power would be reduced without it... didn't want to spam questions about that on the forum. I've mostly been actively using it to guarantee penalty-free gloves, especially now that I've finally realized that a Devices bonus removes the penalty too. Magic seems a bit more plentiful than Life, and the bonus is much more useful.

What I generally desperately *want* to infuse, yet usually *can't* until it's no longer relevant, is rBlind/rConf. That may be a good thing though.

On 31.3.2011 09:11 Bostock wrote:
I started finding fireproof books in force somewhere in the... 30s? 40s? I starting F12ing (k-.99y\r'ing) them somewhere in the 40s or 50s.

Interestingly, the only off-skill books I recall this game have been Druid books. Almost certainly just a blip though.

If I can remember to remember, I hope to do some Infusion-powered recharging in the endgame.

Ooh, this deliberate activation of a Staff of Summoning has produced some dragons! Pretty colors! I'm at full health, so I don't think about poison resistance. Let me just blink off and pound them with Mana Frenzy for a bit.

Ancalagon the Black breathes poison! You die.

960 damage.

I swear, it's always the resistance holes.
