[CL22:DE Lords] 01:41
Here's another weak weapon master go ... The Broad Spear is low end and not available early on. But there are a couple good artifacts available, including Tonbo giri and Destiny. Also, 1d9 weapons are nicely suited for weapons of slaying.

Its a weakness of mine that I usually follow up previous characters with combos that address weaknesses. Since my last guy had *no* stealth and died to nether, what better than a Vampire? Of course, this means one must conquer the yeek cave first, which took nearly 40 minutes. Then, I realize that vampires make really bad polearm masters. Why? Well, they can't really feed now can they? At least not reliably. Step next to your foe to eat and you often auto attack (and kill, of course). Let your foe step next to you, and you *always* auto attack (but not always kill). So, one needs to eat preemptively, basically anytime you luck in to the opportunity to do so. Its not too bad, since the attack on movement option is only 1 in 5. Also, with all the wilderness slogging one needs to do early on, well, you better hope you can find monsters when needed.

No luck with the Broad Spear until I did the Mimic's Treasure (having lucked into an early ring of FA and some BM staves of speed). Still, no confusion made the quest rough, but I did find a Broad Spear. I wore it immediately only to get a deathly cold shiver running down my spine. D'oh! Cursed! Please no permacurse! That would be just like the RNG too ... But it was only (-8, -4) and I paid 12k to enchant it up to (+4, +4) and another few k to reach (+5, +8) with scrolls.

Also in the Treasure was the phial, so my next step was clear. And Apocalypse Beacon rocks, except it forces me to wear Boldor's ring, which I finally managed to lose. Also, I lose my slaying ring too, but the stat boosts net me killer damage and that last attack, so its a easy choice.

Now, its time to find my destiny ...

[CL28:Barrow Downs] 02:58
Easy go with the Barrow Downs ... except that 60% thru I got "hungry". Now, there is of course nothing to eat in the quest, so I had to just crank up my speed and hope I could clear the quest in time. I did, and this was most likely due to my amazing amulet: slow digestion!

Sniper gloves are even good for melee guys, but I'm speed starved so Pippin gets the go. And my Merry replacement has nice key resists and a con boost, but again, I need da speed.

6444 kills in 10800s of play. I really need to start focusing on getting that ratio up ... I could have done it vs Software Bugs (Thanks for leaving those for me, Variant Maintainer!) but got bored after about 1500 kills. I could only kill 40 per second so they apparently breed too slow.

[CL32:DL40] 05:12
It took a loooong time to get my first ego broad spear. 11902 objects in the dungeon with 9314 kills netted about 8 broad spears, none of which were excellent. But my last round of town teleportation landed a beautiful +2 attack spear! Sweet.

To celebrate, I took both my ?Acquirements to the top of the Dragon's Lair hoping for some FA, but only got armor of resist acid and another armor of resist cold. Bah!

I can't really wear this damage ring yet as I'm still using Boldor's ring of light resistance. Still, I can dream ...

[CL34:Cloning Pits] 06:12
I went for a rematch vs Judge Mortis. To recap, last time he double nether breath instakilled my weapon master. I was only base speed of 3, only had 546hp, lacked nether resistance, but was doing 570 damage per round so felt confident ... too confident.

This time, I had 670hp, +5 speed, both poison and nether resistance, but only 300 damage per round. We fought a while and that guy dishes it out (He also follows if you panic teleport). But then he triple moved, triple breathed Nether ... Poison ... Nether and I decided to just give up. From 670hp to 70hp in one freakin' round. That's about 1k for a resistance lacker, which is normal by the time he starts showing up. So I guess characters need to just hang at L30 until they resist all, have +10 base speed, and 800+hp? Insane ... Speed rings start at L80! That's too hard ... But Jack of Shadows can dish out a couple thousand hp in a single round and shows up at around the same time ... If a +10 speed monster triple moves a +5 speed player, what does a +55 speed monster do?

Anyway, shortly thereafter something tarnished my speed sling, putting me back to +4 speed. Not sure what, since I was really on the lookout for disenchanters ... sigh. In frustration, I did the Cloning Pits without Chaos resistance, and freakin' rolled it. So I'm powerful enough for the pits, but not for Judge Mortis? I want another rematch :D

Odds of Judge Mortis breathing 3 times in a row are 1 in 4629. So even if he does luck into a triple move, that is just unlikely. What are the odds of him getting 3 moves to my 1? I get 15 energy per game turn and he gets 20 so he should only move 33% faster then me. But my math isn't good enough to figure out those odds ...

[CL34:Old Castle] 06:44
Old Castle in under 7 hours, and only at CL34! Wow! I paid a steep price in !Healing. Garm required 4 and the Raals 2.

But check this out:
The Broad Spear 'Haradekket' (2d11) (+9,+13) (+4 to stealth) {Sl|VQ/*}

That is by far my best ever. Except for the whole quake thing, but I guess I need to learn how to play with that now don't I? At least until Destiny shows up.

On 19.7.2012 15:31 chris wrote:
Well, I was getting bored with guy anyway. Weaponmasters really aren't my playstyle as you are reduced to less than 1% of all weapons that generate (As an aside, I only found a single artifact longsword all game ... Can you guess which one? So even weapons that seem common usually aren't). I managed a couple ego broad spears, but no artifacts other than The Old Castle and the DQII, both of which were splendid. But even so, effective damage output was low (below 200) and my accuracy was in the mid 50% with even a high race/personality.

Reaping seems useless, and that is probably a playstyle thing. Paying 40hp to have a 45% chance (which is my accuracy after factoring in the -40 to hit) of doing 80hp of damage hardly seems worthwhile, and at this stage of the game, I simply never get surrounded. Plus 80hp isn't going to land the death blow on anything (and if it did, I fight 1v1 so the wraithform won't give any bonus anyway).

Trip, on the other hand, is useful. Since battles are 2x as long as normal for a 5 attack character, being able to steal rounds from your opponent every so often is essential. It allowed time for my vampiric weapon to regain hp. My strategy was to remove Anarion and entrench prior to engaging my sleeping foe (though the 1 in 5 attack on move was *hugely* annoying ... more like a liability than anything else). Uniques were fairly resistant, but even so, it worked maybe 4 or 5 times (out of ~30) vs Elbra. Mycen was risky with my light vulnerability and I had to use healing, despite the nearly 1500hp gained by my vampiric weapon. Without trip, it would have been much worse, but monsters are ticked off by the talent so its hard to say.

So how did I die? It was actually an interesting death. A huge vault, of course, which I would have left alone were I not just bored with this guy (barring a dice boosted broad spear, of course). But my quake weapon actually allowed me to gain traction, and was a pleasant vault weapon. Up in the top left was a tiny vault room with excellent items, and an Iron Mask, so I thought I'd give it a go. Only Fiona and the Norsa stood between me and a potential mask of terror. I wasn't quite ready to enter the room, and was trying to quake away a sleeping Norsa by beating up on a hapless ent on the other side of a permanent wall. But the quake woke up Fiona and removed the Icky status of the vault tiles allowing her to command me to return. Since the Norsa was still sleeping, I thought I'll just get Fiona to blink and that helm is mine, right?

Nope! I missed the message about the Norsa waking up and it double breathed me from full hp to what you see here. So in the end, the Earthquakes killed me ... Ah well.

Maybe it's an idea to boost the likeliness of your chosen weapon to drop. So you can actually find them. What bothers me with weaponmasters is that it's hard to find the interesting weapon types. You need to be end-game before you can find them. And as you just noticed yourself, sometimes even normal ones don't drop.

It would make weaponmasters maybe a little bit more interesting (as I like playing them, but die 90% of the time before I even find my chosen weapon).

Or just do as i originally stated and allow whole subclass of weapons. In the scheme of things even that is not so much.

Maybe some +shots / level as it basically is a melee char with no crowd control / area attack.

Also monster retaliation needs to be capped 1-2 hits/turn. Some mobs get ridiculous if you are dual wielding otherwise. I have no clue how many mobs have it now other than monks but if any high mobs do they will pretty much 1 shot a dual wielder. 1 shot 1 dude dual wielding vs stormbringer without double moves 600hp->-50. Replace that with Ares or something if he does retaliate.. oh well.

I definitely agree that the weapons this class can use need to be broadened. Gumband is the only variant I can recall that did the Weaponmaster and it allowed any weapon with a given tval (Blunt, Polearms, Axes and Swords) to be used interchangeably for the specialist. I took a quick look at the source, and the bonuses granted were insane, so I don't think we want to go there.

Personally, I play a lot of ninjas, and find their weapon restrictions severely limiting. But, they can use a whopping total of 12 possible weapon types (not counting poison needle, fishing poles or sticks). That really blows the weaponmaster's single allowed weapon option out of the water, but even there, I often find my ninjas grinding for good weapons "in class".

If it were up to me, I would make the following changes:

[1] Class gets 6 attacks max with any weapon in class, not just sub speciality weapon. They get 1 attack max with any weapon out of class. This is for melee specialities only as we still want slingmasters to be able to fight a bit. Or perhaps they get 5 blows max for non-sub-speciality weapons in class but 6 blows max for sub-speciality weapon.

[2] Class either gets a combat bonus when using sub-speciality weapon, perhaps (+10, +10) pro-rata level. Or, the get a penalty when using non-sub-speciality weapons from their group, perhaps (-10, -10) or maybe (-20, +0).

[3] Class loses ability to wear Terror Mask. Anti-magic now disrupts talents.

[4] Class gets all abilities with any weapon in class. However either
[4a] Abilities have non-trivial fail rates when not using sub-speciality weapon
[4b] Abilities are somewhat gimped when not using sub-speciality weapon. For example, the polearm master has penalties to hit for various techniques, and these penalties could be larger when using a non-sub-speciality weapon.

There needs to be some incentive to not specialize in the uber weapon from each class. To retain the flavor of Dave's original design, you should still strongly prefer the weapon you choose at startup, but you should have other options as well in case things don't work out as planned (Other than grinding for that one artifact that you can use ...)

That's just my two cents, of course.

Why not make the character subspecialize in the end rather than the beginning? All weapons in family can be available at the outset, and the weaponmaster can have the ability "Choose Subspecialty" permanently available. Whenever he/she feels ready, the player can go into a subspecialty. Once it is chosen, "Choose Signature Weapon" becomes unlocked, and the weaponmaster can choose one of those too (when ready to do so). This preserves the flavor while letting the player stay flexible about weapons until it makes sense to commit to something.
