Attempting to copy the "King of Speed"!!

30 minutes to get to the lair seems long, no? I did make a slight alteration to do the Orc's quest for an extra bit of stealth, but that only added 5 minutes or so. Perhaps getting hung up on Lagduf and his 50+ orc entourage slowed me down?

The major issue so far is Word of Recall. With stair disappearance, I quickly burn thru scrolls, and they are pricey. How do you usually handle this?

Telepathy already is nice. But I guess I shouldn't post already?

Another 15 minutes has brought 2 !Chr, 2 !Int, 1 !Con, Cambeleg, Colannon, and Taratol. I can't kill anything, though! Well, I managed a young green dragon but it was close. That 13 damage per round is literal :( But Cambeleg grants a third blow, and I'm on the look out for my 7d9 Ninjato of Slaying!

First brush with death! Hitherto, I've been sneaking around so much badness, with so much success, that I've begun to get confident. But when an Ice Wyrm popped into line of sight (me lacking cold resist), I did my absconding and landed in the midst of a pack of Time Hounds! Really, one should keep Kawarimi up at all times, but probably, regaining my ninja stealth saved my life as I only took around 200 damage.

Hp up to 340 thanks to a ring of con +6, but I play without resist base. Ah well, I'll luck into some armor of resistance eventually. And I can now kill mature dragons, though it is mostly a scavenger hunt thus far.

But Victor, you did the Cloning Pits by this time? Wow! I still don't get it, I guess :)

Haha, you're doing pretty darn well there :)

Cloning Pits was only possible because I had found a checker vault in Dragon Caves, and of course I had to go at it---the x5 Light crossbow that was not too many spaces in turned out to be Brand, and that coupled with the Beaked Axe (Death) I was wielding at the time was sufficient for the Pits.

Gotta love Axemasters for the pure damage output! NINJAs have an extra special sequence, mainly because of their Iron Spike skills. Ninjas use this sequence:

Thieves' Quest --> Dragon Caves


Believe me, those spikes sure can put the hurt on young dragons, and even mature ones after a while. That'll level you up real quick. As to scrolls of WoR, that's the thing...just gotta buy a bunch. I usually go with a stack of ten, and bless the day you find a rod of recall. Of course, you can go to the Labyrinth to pick that one up, but that takes too much time :D

OK, I see ignoring spikes was a mistake. Early on, the ninja can't do any damage as criticals index to both player level and monster level I believe. I can fight now, though :)

[CL28:Barrow Downs] 01:55
20+ minute hiatus to do some quests, hoping I could luck into some armor of resistance while I was at it (I wanted Merry for confusion resist). It paid off. So, back to the lair, or more quests? I can't help feeling like Victor would be shaking down the Serpent by this point ;)

Managed Smaug, Scatha and even a Hell Wyrm, thanks to The Rapier of the Duelist. Ordinarily, vampirism is meaningless for a ninja, but Sacred Vitality helps out quite a bit. Still, that Hell Wyrm battle took almost 100 rounds, so I'm not quite so formidable :(

I'm not going to rush for the Cloning Pits just yet. Things are starting to pick up quite nicely in the lair at the moment!

[CL31:Cloning Pits] 02:58
Phew! I struggled to finish the pits by the 3 hour mark (aka, the mark of shame!) and just eeked it out. The only nasty inside was Stormbringer, but he got completely owned by my ninja power (kawarimi).

So, there goes my telepathy but I think I can play OK without it.

Now, I know I just said I wouldn't rush into the Cloning Pits, but did anyway. Now, I say I won't rush into the Old Castle! And this time, I mean what I say :)

[CL33:DL60] 03:16
I was actually forced to play without Telepathy for all of 2 minutes before Jack's cloak showed up. Together with Faramir, I am now quite sneaky!

So, for L40, I'm considering:
[1] Weapon Mastery
[2] Untouchable
[3] Evasion

Potion Chugger might be interesting, but I decided to drop this from my short list. I'm not sure about weapon mastery, but ninjas are stuck at skilled on most of the end game weapons (rapiers) and an extra +18 to hit might turn out to be quite useful. An end game dual wielding ninja might be stuck with only 40% melee accuracy, so this might be the way to go. Of course, if Ambidextrous was still an option there wouldn't even be a choice :) Any thoughts?

[CL34:DL62] 03:36
Max stealth! Now, with only 20% accuracy with The Duelist and 12% with Sting, I'm somewhat discouraged. I think I will take Weapon Mastery after all :(

I'd vote Evasion, unless you intend on using the hit and away tactic, which is doable but takes forever. Those earthquake criticals can just really ruin anyone's day.

Hmm ... Well, there is Hide in Mud for avoiding earthquake crits but I've changed the AI so that monsters auto dispel that these days. I'm just worried I'll never be able to hit stuff unless I luck into Genji.

[CL35:DL98] 03:52
DL98 in under 4 hours. Heck, now were getting some place :) Actually, I just finished the Old Castle for like my 50th sub-par artifact reward in a row. Damn, I could have used a nice boost!

I could try ?Art on a ninjato and not dual wield. What are the odds I pick up extra dice and extra attacks?

On 18.2.2012 23:01 chris wrote:
[CL35:DQII] 04:13
OK, I'm now only 1hour slower than Victor. That's really not too bad :)

What should I use my ?Artifact on? At the moment, I don't really have anything worth the bother. I'd go with a Falcon Sword or even a Ninjato if I had one.

So, why did I rush to do this quest?

On 18.2.2012 23:42 chris wrote:
[CL37:DL98] 04:48
Ah, well. I'll never find a ninjato, it seems. I did manage a +3 attack small sword, which is nice. Not as good as vampirism at the moment, but later on those extra attacks are key.

So, L98 is pretty darn hard. I keep getting double moved by The Destroyer (Disintegrate + Mana Bolt). I can survive this, but barely.

With so many _Healing, perhaps I should consider Demonic Grasp? I'm running out of time in which to make a decision.

Hehe! I've always found a good bet is a good pair of dragon boots, as the more commonly found boot artfiacts are quite lackluster, except the God of All Boots, which fixes so many speed issues :)

A good weapon is probably the most important though...and probably one with good damage dice for a ninja. Hard to say what the ideal would be, but a good two-handed Ninja-to might be nice. Gonna have to try that some time myself perhaps.

Yeah, whatever ... On a positive note: Genji!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Now, I just need Dragon Gloves of Genji for true ninja bliss :D

Genji are +18% melee accuracy, taking me from 32% to 50% vs. AC175. I'm still low level, but even with Genji, I think another +18 to hit might be worth it.

Victor, good call on delaying the Old Castle reward. I should have done that also, but you never know, you might get the 1 in 5 uber reward!

It might aggravate, but at least those orcs won't be able to get the jump on you... that's always a big relief, I find.

Well, I only intended to read my Art scroll at this depth, and then return back to the dragon caves for some more reasonable challenges. But, I think I will just hang out here forever!

Check out: The Light Crossbow 'Electronics' (x5) (+28,+29) {*El;ShNx;Xm}

I even managed to score a nice Spaghetti dinner!

[CL40:DL98] 06:45
Well, its done. I went with Weapon Versatility after all. At first, this is just +8 to hit, but I'm slowly building skills with my two weapons. Rapiers and Falcon Swords are both stuck at skilled normally, so being able to master should net another +10 to hit. With !Heroism and ?HolyChant, I should be quite formidable! And while Demonic Grasp would have been a convenient choice, ninjas can gather quite sufficient supplies given enough patience.

Next goals: Bunshin (L41) then Enlightenment (L45).

I've managed some pretty big kills, including Kaschei, but the elite guardians of Angband still scare me. I really am just holding out for some of the good ninja weapons, but, in the mean time, I have been staggered by the utility of The Duelist. Of course, you want this tasty item in your lead hand so that criticals (striking out of the shadows, for example) augment the vampirism. And of course, Sacred Vitality helps too, so I usually regain close to 100hp per round! Really, this helps me conserve my healing goodies, especially those CCW potions that only heal 60 or so.

Oh, I give up.
The Falcon Sword 'WTF?!!!!!' (2d6) (+19,+22) (+2 attacks) {StDxCn;Ag|S/U}

So, 1 in 13 means 1 in 1 for me. And also, Julian, the only wanted Amberite, entombed himself on dying. Seriously, that happens to almost 90% of my characters, and I can't remember the last time I scored the Justice artifact. I don't mind challenges in the game, but dumb luck you just fail mechanics are highly annoying.

The One Ring? This would solve a boat load of my problems, including resist base (actually, immune base!) and help keep my stats maxed. Shame about the Ancient Foul Curse, but I might consider using it for the Serpent. It combos with my WTF falcon sword :D

[CL47:DL100] 10:11
OK, Victor. Here is a timestamp for you to beat. I'm sure you can do it ;)

A very easy win, and my only mistake (a big one!) was not to bring ?Teleport for the Anti-magic. This only came up once, but fortunately, not in combo with Dispel Magic, so I could back away and use my super stealth to recover. Actually, I'm having trouble remembering the last time I had such an easy win!

Nice winning message!

Ten hours to a winner... That will be hard to beat by anyone.

Uber stealth and persistent darkness is a winning combination for sure.
