Alright, this is tough. This is my best character to date, by a longshot. He has a good evasion rate, good protection when he does get hit, and a fair bonus to hit. I'm finding that +tohit is much more important than +todamage. I had several characters with honking big halberds and greataxes and decent armor that got torn to bits simply because they didn't hit as often. I suppose my next plan of action is to dump all my experience into will and grab useful resistances. The holy grail would be to start increasing my hitpoints out the wazoo, but I'll probably be long dead before that becomes a possibility. The identify-everything skill on the perception tree is mouth-drooling tempting.

You already have an amazingly high Constitution -- higher than any character I've ever had, so I don't think you need to go all that far in that direction. In my experience, the best stat in Sil is Dexterity as increasing Melee/Evasion is just really important. It is particularly strong with high evasion characters who wear light armour and try to almost never be hit.

You should definitely find a safe place and start drinking those potions. You'll be able to identify a few types. It is best to do it when slightly wounded and suffering a couple of status effects to make sure to identify healing, clarity and slow poison -- sometimes you can give yourself these problems with other potions to help identify the cures. Since you get experience for identifying things this is definitely good to do.

Your armour level is indeed very good, and that Kite Shield is superb.

Thanks for the info! My armor is currently absorbing all damage thrown at me, so I definitely need to push on to more difficult levels. I get sidetracked by wanting to kill everything, even though I'm getting about zilcho experience for it. Unless my math is off, which it often is, I'm going to amass 4200 experience and grab 7 levels of perception and lore-master and lore-master-master so I can indeed identify everything fully. My chest of "I can't open this chest" is pretty hilarious. I'm assuming it has something good in it since it was in a kind of mini-vault guarded by wraiths. Maybe I'll come across a something of opening or my stats will get good enough to let me open it. I wish I could bash it!

Chests normally have something at least okay, and sometimes very good, but there isn't a guarantee that it will be great. However perception is used in unlocking rolls, so if you increase your perception to get Lore Master you'll incidentally become a lot better at opening chests (you might still need to try a few times; (R)epeat command can be useful for this).

Got the super-impressive identify skill and now I am completely spoiled rotten. Sitting at 650', and feeling rather nervous. I've come across a few monsters that were really tough. I've dubiously spent gads of experience into increasing my melee skill with the goal of reaching that magical level 20, where I can start boosting my strength, but in hindsight this is likely ridiculously poorly optimized. It's probably easier to dump half as many points into smithing and make rings of strength bonus and or weapons of increased damage dice. I blame sleep deprivation. I think tomorrow I'll re-evaluate.

Well done on dealing with some giants, and with Gilim -- I've lost some heavy-armour type characters to them in the past.

You maybe don't need to devote inventory slots to all of those types of herbs (Visions in particular I'd normally only eat if I had food problems; Restoration on the other hand is very helpful if you have Smithing in mind).

Bear in mind that you can only get each ability once, so 20 in melee will let you increase your strength to 3, but not higher. As you suggest, rings and weapons are often an easier place to get bonuses (as are Gauntlets of Power). Another way to increase your effective damage output is the Song of Sharpness. On the other hand, points in Melee are always going to be useful!

I've just noticed that some of your equipment has been badly damaged by acid. You might want to look for a new suit of armour and/or pair of gauntlets.

Very helpful advice. I hadn't noticed the acid damage and why was I thinking I could retake point-of-strength multiple times?

As far as the extra items, I haven't bothered to drop them in case a better thief than the orc one comes along. Maybe it would steal one of my decoy things!

That was a lot of fun! This character gave me a large leap in understanding of the game, along with all of the helpful comments. If I had retained my original armor class I think I would have survived the cat attack, and likely the rest of 650' judging by the clairvoyance granted by death. This guy really needed more damage output to exit fights quicker.
