Whiskers couldn't withstand the wand of wonder and was good to me with his drop. Additionally, I found two decent weapons before I ever met him. The best start to a game of Mist I've ever had.

On the down side, 2 alters on DL5 and I've got nothing I'm willing to part with.

I like the whole random spell choice. Is that a spellsword thing? Anyhow, killing what I can with melee... using spells when low on HP... clearing levels with little rest/no healing and mana to spare.

Very nice weapon with the Confuse Monster spell! Not so hot otherwise, maybe.

Priests and spellswords get random spells, others get to choose.

Not a breeze, but not a struggle either. Plugged my third basic resist with a little help from Mughash... also a victim of the wand of wonder. Still no bow.

Well now there's a bow, not that it gets much use. Upgraded the weapon a bit. I'm beginning to wonder about not having free action.

Free Action!

... and now a really sweet bow that makes archery worthwhile, and at extreme distance. No wounds yet, but I've had two close calls. A vampire bat that drained a level and all my remaining mana... had to use my last scroll of teleport to get away, and subsequently Azog, who I then burned through 5 of my 6 phase doors trying to get away from (and just made it to the stairs with ~40 HP left).

On 25.10.2012 04:00 buzzkill wrote:
Incidentally, that bow came from one of Azog's treasure room. I returned after he abandoned his lair in pursuit of me. I had to hill all his cronies of course. It was kind of a PITA, glad it was worth it.

... and of course now that I have ego items I have no need of, altars have become scarce. AC is getting up there and I found some grreeeeat arrows at the BM.

I've only seen one fountain this whole game, and it smelled of disease.

1.3.1 does even out room styles somewhat. You'll find altars eventually.

Fountains are very rare on purpose. Shapeshifting would get old if it happened all the time, now it feels special.

Arghh. I descended with great confidence but ended up with a wound. Immediately detected Azog and friends and avoided them. Later killed Elonra and Ulfast, but was KO'd by a small group of water hounds (a minor threat, or so I thought) who all breathed in unison, then picked me apart. I recovered with a severely diminished MEM which cost me knowledge of nearly all my spells. Nearly TL'd, but cooler heads prevailed, and instead stuck it out, cast top level fire bolts as never before. Eventually succeeded in clearing most of the level (except for Azog's space) after finding a potion of Restore Wit. Recalled to town and therein found my first potions of speed.

I was a bit apprehensive at first (about the loss of speed), but this whole being a statue thing kicks ass... and I can pile on the shield spell if I really need to be invulnerable. I am a tank!

Found my first artifact on DL28. Now I just need to *ID* it.

Went toe to toe with Shelob. Found her at the end of the level and my mana was low. Her summons are annoying. Ended up brawling her on a dead end staircase. I would have beaten her too but she healed too often and I ran out of speed and mana.

Being a statue? What am I missing? :)

OK, just converted to Discordia, planning to convert again to Eostre and stay there.

Another level cleared and nothing to show for it.

@ ewan : Statue form gives you a big boost to AC and resists at the expense of speed. If you already have a reasonably high AC it make you pretty much untouchable (though hurled curses become a problem).

How does one adopt statue form?

Also, apologies for the misplaced comment on my religious activity :-)).

There's an awful bug when transforming into a form without some equipment slots. If there's an artifact in a slot, it gets dropped on the ground and becomes an ordinary item. Be careful!

Internal help on Your Character -> Shapeshifting gives away the different species and their abilities.

Hey, my Rinaldo is wielding a Three-Piece-Staff too. Your staff is +4, mine is +3. I got my staff on DL 4 as a lucky drop, you had to wait until DL 13. :)

I had to enchant mine up from +0. It's still getting the job done thanks to the confuse monster being so cheap on mana.

Lost my staff of speed to recharging and my ring of accuracy (+8) to a plasma vortex on 32 (and nearly killed by a five headed hydra of some sort). Other than that it was a very boring level... had some plants, but no tables or altars or features of any kind.

Equipment in general is pretty rare to find anything decent, I found.

Got significantly better after dlvl 42 or so, but then the monsters get tough also. I was wearing a FA ring almost to the final battle.

Oh man, I forgot about that drolem being nearby... and was temporarily blinded. Oh well, I was in over my head anyhow, just teleporting about looking for scraps, hoping to just survive.

Invisible things are a huge pain in the butt without see invisible.

In the end I was going to return to town and transition into a stealth archer... but I never made it back to town. It's not that I didn't start on an up staircase almost every level, it's just that once I left that staircase, I could never get back to it.

No SI? Yikes. I'm amazed you survived that long - that's a tough lack.
