Another successful character, newly created in Sil 1.0.1. This time, I'm going pretty fast at my rate, min depth is 300ft, and my current depth is 450ft. Right now, I'm able to take out anything that gets in my way. Let's see how far I can go!

Still going strong. I'm hanging around at 550ft, yet my min depth is only 400ft. I'm going fast. Shadow worm masses,...shadow this and that are a thing of the past. Oh yeah, my current Melee skill is at +19 now, high enough to kill Giants and Wargs easily, even with the Greatsword. I think my 'Evasion' is sufficiently high, at +14. My 'Will' is up there, at +9. I'm protected with Curse Breaking, Clarity, Hardiness, and Poison Resistance. I'm stocked on those Orcish Liquors, 6 of them. I have a bunch of unknown Rings, and I have yet to identify them.

While wandering about at 550ft, I get a message saying, "You hear a grinding sound." What could that be? I have a bad feeling about this...

Also, I just encountered a Ruby serpent at 550ft, which I killed already. Uh, these guys are dangerous too, right?

It looks like I'm in for a ride pretty soon...

Nice run!
The "grinding" message means, that something is digging through the walls, most likely some nether worms at this depth. Your evasion might be a bit too low to face cat-warriors, that should show up soon now, so this would be my next priority investment. And as you've allready seen, serpents (and dragons) with elemental attacks become more common now, so you should look out for some source of fire/cold resist, as those elemental attacks tend to ignore most of your armour.

How high should my 'Evasion' be to fight cat-warriors? ;)

The higher, the better :) If I recall correctly they have an attack of 20+, so they will hit you sometimes anyway. They normally don't hit very hard, but due to the high attack often get criticals. It's because of those annoying felines that I normally get critical reistance on fighting characters at this depth but this might be a bit expensive for you with your allready intensive investment into will.
An alternative way of dealing with them is simply to hit them hard before they hurt you to much, just don't let you be swarmed by them!

Yep. Continuing from where I left off, and the dungeon is getting pretty scary. I had some big close calls at 800ft. I caught the attention of some Ancient 'dragons' and one appear to knock off 20-30HP, even with fire resistance. Wow. Currently, my Melee and Evasion are 20+. I picked up on Critical Resistance and Majesty. I'm not sure what else to do now though...

On 22.1.2012 13:38 HugoTheGreat2011 wrote:
Correction, my Melee and Evasion are almost 20. Depending on what equipment I use, I can make both go 20 and up.

I was trying to ascend backwards to 700ft, to give myself more time to prepare. And then, the floor crumbled sending me back to 750ft. And then, I caught in between a Shadow (what it turned to be) and a Cat warrior. Game Over. Something tells me that I should've descended to 1000ft anyways...Oh well.

Nice screenshots with the Ururaukar. There's a whole story there ...

Dragon-fire is canonically hard to withstand, and we liked the feel of this, so tried to keep it. Dragons are territorial, so you can almost always avoid fighting them if you want to. Having a single source of fire resistance will halve the damage from the breath attacks; two sources will divide it by three; and so on.

On 22.1.2012 14:50 half wrote:
Also, there are a few sources of protection that work against the elemental breath attacks. Hardiness and Song of Staying and Rings of Protection always work. Shields work against Fire and Frost. Equipping a Kite Shield before facing a dragon can make quite a bit of sense, but fire resistance is still more important. It run away from Young Fire Drakes and Great Fire Drakes if I didn't have resistance.
