Had great fun with this archery-build, shouting the name of Elbereth into the faces of any orc or troll coming along, shooting them in the back when they run away screaming, even a nice artefact bow to play with. Sadly those couple of giants weren't really impressed and herded me right into some mini-vault full of nasties, including a silent watcher... how I missed my scroll of phase door!

Actually I probably should have headed to the next stairs, as soon as I met the first silent watcher (native depth 1000'!) on the level, in hindsigth a clear sign there was something unusual going on, and I really wasn't ready for that.

I'm yet to try a Song of Elbereth archer, but am just playing a character with Song of Elbereth and Opportunist, an ability that gives you a free melee attack when something moves away from you. It works well, but involves a moderate investment in Stealth which is then somewhat counteracted by singing loudly...

You have done well with your choice of Abilities: getting Focused Attack for free with a House of Finarfin character makes sense -- Keen Senses would also have been a good choice, and certainly worth 500 experience. I'm not sure that blocking would help much though -- its main strength is in melee combat when you have lots of things that go well with it (Focused Attack is one though). Did you get Weaponsmith to allow you to forge a bow/arrows at 100ft? That can be a good way to get archers going. If so, a House of Feanor character may have made it easier (Smithing Affinity).

Forging the needed bow/arrows early is nice, but a bit situational, as you could always find them or not find a forge early, so a Feanorian might be a bit of a wast.The perception discount on the other hand is allways usefull, so I went with Finarfin. (Oh, and a personal dislike for the arrogant Feonorians certainly has nothing to do with my choice)

Focused attack is also a prerequisit for the superb Concentration, though Keen Senses and later on Listen look good, too. At the time of my untimely death I was just trying to get my defenses up, the next 1000 exp would have gone into heavy armor use, that's why I chose blocking, though it does indeed go quite well with focused attack whenever you get cornered by some spider or simillar...

Next runs I probably will try out polearms for melee support, polearm mastery + focused attack looks interesting, too.

Cool character! Were you singing at the end? I'd guess your Song might not have been high enough to scare off Wargs and Giants.

It isn't documented in the manual, but there's actually always a forge on the second level generated. On the other hand, you are quite likely to find a bow and arrows early.

I've found polearm characters pretty fun, although I haven't got one into the late game. Let us know how it goes!
