Switched to mage from necromancer and I also turned autoscum on which has made things more interesting and profitable. Some pretty decent finds early, doriath weapon, hat of serenity, ring with telepathy (and paralysis, have to try and remove that whenever remove curse shows up). Ironman is fun but oh god so slow, almost one million turns and I'm on DL38, obviously thanks to a lot of resting but it still takes forever.

Rolling quite fast now, SP has sky rocketed now I've finally found some *int* potions (demon pits helped with that), almost have more SP than HP!

Nice, met Glaurung at DL55 and he dropped Ilkorin!

Started diving quickly after hitting DL60 or so since I was sick of clearing or mostly clearing levels. At DL87 now I pretty much have what I need to win, I guess. I'd like a few more *healing* but with 650HP I'm not sure they even matter, I'll just have to rely on dimension door and regular healing if it comes to it. I also don't have rFear which sucks, I don't want a repeat of last time but there's not much I can do about it apart from collect whatever !heroism I can find in the next few floors. The final fight will involve risks, then...

Is it just me or is the wand of Osse kind of lame? I'm suspect of anything with damage drop off and it also creates water under you which can slow you down. The wand of unmaking too, if it didn't randomly destruct it would be great (though it is so rare).

They definitely aren't close to the godly usefulness of the staff of winds, that is for sure.

Right, so I'm hearing you need me to nerf the Staff of Winds?

Aight well it only took 3 charges of a staff of healing (which blew up after). I sat in the middle of some doors and blasted him with meteors, most of the time he approached diagonally so I think I wasn't even in his LOS.

Nice work. Any suggestions? Was Morgoth too easy? Should I remove Door Creation?

Thanks, not sure if I got lucky with the setup because he seemed to approach from the same two angles every time once I was in a certain position (which I didn't plan out particularly). I wouldn't miss door creation, it was the only time I used it.

Unfortunately mages are just built on this sort of trickery though, between blink other, phase door, staff of winds, rod of air, thrust away, wall of force and hockey sticks you have many options to kill things without them being able to attack you. It's less effective against big M since he opens up the level more but you can still do it to an extent.

Ultimately you'd have to mess with vision and targeting, which is a big can of worms. NPP/Sil has it so you can't target around corners, but I find this quite annoying - I don't like being able to see something and not shoot at it, sometimes it isn't obvious at a glance if something is even targetable until you try (this is really bad in pillared rooms for example).

Poscheng has it so that if a monster can see a square next to you, it can hit you with balls/breaths/summons which makes almost every trick ineffective apart from maybe some very edge cases. This works well in poscheng because it is a chaotic variant with more tolerance for unpredictability (see also monster double moves), but it has some weird effects like a monster on the other side of a pillar blasting you with a breath and means you can get hit a lot from unseen things which isn't ideal.

To me, Crawl has it best. You can target any square in vision and player/monster vision is entirely symmetrical, there is also no light system - there aren't any tricks and you will never be hit from something you cannot see. From what I gather it would be tough to do that in Angband though because there are like 5 different types of vision and under everything there is a light system which will always mean there are monsters which should be in view but aren't.
