I've finally broken parity! 49 damage per round for ranged, and 48 for melee.

The increase in ranged weapons has been noticeable... 2 ranged weapons in my Angband quests up to dlvl 12 so far... 2 shooters, both crossbows >_<

Melee's stronger again... 66 vs. 52. But Manyshot kicks butt against Orcs/breeders/etc; if I get 4 in range, that's the equivalent of 27*4 = 108 damage (even 3 is 81, and superior to melee damage). Shoot and phase vs. melee monsters is obscenely easy, but I need to go back to melee for summoners, because of the ticked off business.

=oDamage bumps ranged to 99 damage / round, but melee up to 140. Sigh. I again seem to have problems with FA, and this is around when I died the first time.

Seriously, this is just sad now. Am I gonna have to scum the BM for a pair of gloves or ring of FA?

Scumming the BM for 2 days yielded a Sling of Accuracy (+13,+13), but still no source of FA. (On the bright side, I'm beating parity again 114 to 102.)

Braved the Doom Quest I without FA or SI, and managed to come out alive with nothing to show for it except the Ring of Flames [+14].

Is Hydralisk doomed to die again for want of FA? Tune in next time...

Hoard dropped my first Sling of Extra Might (+9,+10), as well as about 50k of gold. However, town-scumming 6 days still didn't give any sources of FA. Instead, I blew the cash on about 30 ?oEnchantWeapon ToDam, and the Elvenkind armor. And of course, the Sling resisted the enchantment every single friggin' time.

Back into Angband, to death or FA.

Why not fail the Mimic's Treasure and do the Tengu and Death Swords? You don't need FA for that one ...

Hm... why not do the Mimic's Quest then? If I stay out of melee range, I shouldn't need FA, right? RIGHT!?

After selling just about everything of value that I owned, I barely afforded the Trump Glaive for 54k (had to sell my Sling of Accuracy, my Shield of Day and Night, some shots, and every backup weapon I had). 11 gold pieces left over!

But, now I finally have FA, and can go undertake the Mimic Quest without worries.

Right!! Except when Grendel gets summoned and you teleport and land next to one of the paralyzing door mimics :D

Nah, Grendel was a Cakewalk ;-) Thanks to Klackon Speed and Shot on the Run, he didn't get to do anything before he died to the Automated Turret (tm).

I'm generally going well now... except no SI. (sigh) It's going to be one of those abnormal games.

160 damage per round! That's getting halfway respectable. Although the damage increase is going to seriously slow down from here on out... I'll get +1 todam and +0.19 shots/round every 5 levels, but that's pennies. Next big damage breakthrough points are clvl 35 and 40 (barring an extra-early Sling artifact with Xmight and Xshots and a huge +todam).

Expected damage progression:

clvl 30: 1.9*1.25*(3.27*(10+6+4)+10) = 75/179
clvl 35: 2.05*1.25*1.2*(3.27*(10+7+4)+15) = 83/257 (find =oDamage(+15))
clvl 40: 4.20*1.25*1.2*3.6*(10+8+4) = 79/498 (find =oExtraShots, max STR)
clvl 45: 4.35*1.25*1.2*3.6*(10+9+16) = 130/822 (find large stash of Mithral Shots)
clvl 50: 4.5*1.25*1.2*3.6*(18+10+16) = 158/1069 (find randart with +15 todam and Xmight, Signature it)

So, it's not looking too bad, as long as I actually find the items I'm supposed to find on time. The Mithral Shots is the most dubious one, I guess...

Barrow Downs cleared. Finally have a source of FA! And in other news, two artifact cloaks from the quest. One with Telepathy, the other with ImmunityCold. Plus the Snow Field gloves that give CoShBlCfNx. Replacement artifacts are a wee bit strong now...

Darn... my super-Sting means I'm behind parity once again... 291 melee damage vs. 160 ranged.

Immunities are WAY too common at the moment... I've already found 4 immunity items without going below dlvl 40! Two of them wielded (Cold and Elec).

Also found my first =oSpeed from a vault on dlvl 34. It's +4. Meh, should I replace =oDamage or =oRNether?

Hmm ... I toned down arts quite a bit for the next version, cleaned up the code, and added some statistics to my wizard command for generating replacements (Ctl+A then _ then the artifact number from a_info.txt then the number to create).

Here is what I see when generating 1000 of each of the following (The numbers are probably higher for the version you are playing):

The Stone of Lore: 28 had immunity. 25 had speed.
Galadriel: 37 had immunity. 33 had speed.
Jewel: 61 had immunity. 44 had speed.
Frodo: 121 had immunity. 72 had speed.
Shiva's Boots: 178 had immunity. 105 had speed.
Amber: 216 had immunity. 138 had speed.
Thorin: 203 had immunity. 112 had speed.
Colluin: 137 had immunity. 117 had speed.
Isildur: 121 had immunity. 99 had speed.
Stormbringer: 15 had immunity. 91 had speed. 142 had extra attacks.
Ringil: 14 had immunity. 85 had speed. 142 had extra attacks.
Deathwreaker: 26 had immunity. 144 had speed. 130 had extra attacks.

Speed is probably OK, since pvalues are tightly scaled to depth. Should Isildur have 12% immunity? What percentages would you like to see? I'm tempted to make immunity only 20% as likely as it is now ...

Cloning Pits and Old Castle down. Cloning Pits was by far the harder of the two, because of 3 silly mistakes: (1) I forgot Levitation, (2) I forgot !oHeroism, so I couldn't melee for 293/rnd, and had to use my 160/rnd shots, and (3) I forgot to turn off Shot on the Run, and woke up half the place inadvertently. In contrast, Old Castle was pretty smooth, except for the Fallen Angel that kept going Invulnerable.

Sling from Old Castle's pretty nice... Xmight and +20todam. Shortly thereafter, I found another randart Sling with Xmight, +18 todam, and +4 Stealth. Hm, I'll go with 2 more damage for now.

Leveling up in the Dragon Lair gave a =oExtraShots, and at clvl 35, I gained Rapid Shot. Boy, I love this thing! Santa Claus was stunned and bewildered when he was gunned down by 5 shots per round at 100 per pop. (Probably didn't help that he was painted.)

There's definitely too many immunities at the moment; I agree that 1/5 current rate seems reasonable. One thing that's weird is that it always seems to be Cold and Elec for me. (3 of each so far.) Is that just small sampling size, or is there a bias in your 1000x rolls as well?

What I ended up doing for immunities was to add a "depth check". I'm treating immunities as L150 abilities, so you need to pass an additional 1d150 < object level to get it. This seemed to really cut back on the early immunities while still making them possible at the end game (though slightly less likely than before), which is OK IMO. If Deathwreaker picks up an immunity, that's great. But cutting back on Isildur (by about 1/5 since it is a L30 object, I think) is desirable. I think the distribution among the elements is OK, but haven't checked.

Another change I'm considering is to biff light sources. Perhaps they will only get 1/3 the number of powers. Consider that all the lights really don't do much until The Jewel which is just (SpInWi;CfCa;Enlightenment). Well, OK, that one rocks ;) But what's second best, Laputa? +2 speed and levitation. Palantir? +3 wis and Telepathy.

As usual, I really need help/thoughts about game balance, as I tend to suck in this regard.

For me, the artifact lights, other than not requiring fuel, were important mainly for their activations, be it Light Area or Magic Mapping or Identify. With the randart changes, they become a source of Resists/stats, which really changes their flavor. I don't know of a good way of dealing with this... maybe always keep their activations the same, but then randomize only other powers?

I actually really like light sources with resistances and stats--as was pointed out, the Jewel really *is* powerful, and the likelihood of a randart being generated with such an amazing activation is probably close to nil. Also, it's been really difficult getting a source of Hold Life on my current Time Lord, and several of the standart light sources or amulets made it a given. I can't say I've gotten a real uber light source in 0.0.42 and I'm OK with the general feel of them for now.

I do agree however that immunities are a bit common right now. They should definitely be rarer than speed boosts, but speed boosts should not be terribly rare, as the endgame is so heavily dependent on having adequate speed.
