I tried a Vampire Chaos-Warrior and was polymorphed into an Ent by my god deep into the Warg Quest, and I had no potions and no light so I just gave up.

This guy is going much better. Most of my levelups have had positive effects.

Xom gifted me some crazy Sling of Velocity, and I happened to have hoarded a collection of frost pebbles. This has seen me pretty easily through the early game, as I'm killing uniques in 2-3 hits and they can't even run. The chaos spells are p.useful too.

Let's see how far I go before I'm irrevocably ruined. This Amberite form is great, but I really don't expect to have it for much longer.

Right, I forgot that hounds are basically the reason I quit all other *bands except Sil. Just lost a billion things to a room of fire hounds, including my only level 1 chaos spellbook.

Is there a way to force-restock the store in Morivant until it comes back, or should I just keep grinding without spells in the dungeon and hope for the best?

On 10.2.2014 06:56 Roch wrote:
I don't think you can force the restocking unless you buy it out, but you could head back to Outpost (or another town that you've been to via teleport for 500 gp at the Inn and check to see if it's in the book shop there.

Made it to the bottom of the orc caves, but can't put a dent in Azog. I don't understand how weapon damage works in this game, any weapon over a few pounds is apparently too much for me to handle even with 18/30 strength.

I just lost my Amberite form to Beastman, which is still Chaos-appropriate I guess. Might as well add more randomness to the randomness!

This has been fun enough that I basically made the comp 153 character the same. I did this dude with no-selling and patched it so that it didn't suck, but the comp dude will have selling.

I think I'm going to try to phase-shoot Azog to death, but not sure if it's going to work. Let's see what happens.

Oh, and I found the stone of lore randomly at like Orc Caves 18 or something??? Good stuff.

On 16.2.2014 01:33 debo wrote:
Still can't kill Azog. Equipment is slowly being trashed by acid things. Took a jaunt to Telmora, sewer quest was a joke but so was the prize. Not sure what to do next, maybe Labyrinth???

You can try the Labyrinth for leveling up. Bring plenty of !CCW, scrolls of Teleportation, and staves/scrolls of Door/Stair Location.

Had to fail Doom Quest 1. Still got this nifty Torq of the Hero. Can't find anything to get my melee to not suck donkey balls, which is kind of super annoying.

Also item destruction in this game is actually the absolute worst

Yeah...weapons and armor on the ground are bounds to getting insta-destroyed by nearby Elemental attacks.

That's not the part that bothers me, it's that a hound can breathe fire on me from a billion squares away for 1 damage and destroy 100 scrolls in my inventory

On 16.2.2014 04:42 HugoTheGreat2011 wrote:
You really need Fire resistance (probably 2x) to avoid getting stuff destroyed by Fire.

Oh yeah...that's not all. *A LOT* of deep level monsters can breathe from far away places that are also unlit. Welcome to Chris's PosChengband!

You might want to *ID* that Large Leather Shield of Celestial Protection.

Robin Hood dropped a couple decent weapons -- the thingy of Force, which eats mana but hits p.hard, and this nifty scimitar that doesn't do as much damage but has lots of shiny things.

Azog down now. Kinda spleunking through Icky Caves.

Things are humming along. This spear of slay mold is hilariously awesome.

Cleared Icky Caves and the Labyrinth after some hard diving. A few thingies of elemental resist and a mutation ability to resist elements helped with item destruction a bit.

Is this Rod of Recall safe to use in place of Word of Recall scrolls? Can it be destroyed by anything? In V these rods are basically impossible to break but PosCheng seems like the kind of game where that would be untrue.

Not sure where to go from here, maybe the Castle or more quests?

On 16.2.2014 17:08 Arjen wrote:
Rods of Recall do have a failrate, can be stolen (almost never happen) but can't be destroyed by elementals.

And you can do Castle or Forest now, but don't dive too deep into the castle, around lvl 40 you start finding death knights. And don't drop your shield, or else Dark Elven Warlocks will kill you.

You could have told me that Forest was basically a trillion hounds!

Don't forget that you can grind out Angband. If Gachapin is the Angband 24 quest monster, you might want to leave the level right away. He's tough, summons 4-Headed/5-Headed hydras, and has that *really* annoying Chaos / Toxic Waste breaths that can scramble your stats and do big damage.

Thanks for the warning. I've been keeping my stats even bc xom seems to like scrambling me at intervals anyways.

Forest down. Found a serious damage-dealer in Zarcuthra, but aggravate is never fun and the life-drain of the mold spear is handy. I'm keeping Zarcuthra as a swap for unique-smashing.

Vapor quest is fucking awful and had I known what it was like, I would have gone in with a different kit. Had a bunch of good mutations stacked but then a chaos breath gave me stubby legs (-3 speed) so I quaffed a !New Life I found a while ago. No idea what it did to my life rating or stat maxes, but at least I can do stuff still.

Argh I just went to Zul and discovered that there's a cure mutation service!!! Had I known that I wouldn't have quaffed my !New Life.

Is there a fire/elementproofing service anywhere for staves? e.g. if I want to make a teleport staff immune to being blown up.

Started the Giants Hall. Definitely needs more Giants.

Also, do I get the XP penalty of my assumed form, or my original form? Beastmen have 150% XP while Amberites have 190%. If this is what 150% feels like... kinda glad I got polymorphed lol

If you put that ring on the correct hand, you will see the big change in damage

Yup, did that already and I did see quite a jump :)

I also get a decent boost with both weapons if I remove my shield :)

Just remember to keep that shield w/ reflection on standby. If you lose it and bump into Dark elven warlocks, you're screwed!

About making gear fireproof: You can't

And yeah, wielding 2h weapons with 2 hands gives you a major boost in to_hit and to_dam.

The Giant's Hall might be fun. But, its motherfucking boss, Utgard-Loke, is such an asshole that can horribly ruin the fun. He can be extremely hard to take down, has an awfully uber-nasty cold breathe, and summons TITANS and Rock giants like a madman!! Stay away from Giant's Hall 40 until you >700 HP and 3x ColdResistance. I learned this the hard way.

On 17.2.2014 17:26 HugoTheGreat2011 wrote:
FYI, failing Doom Quest 1 also disqualifies you from doing any more quests in Angwil. You actually won't miss much though. The next quest after Doom Quest 1 is The Spawning Pits, a horribly annoying quest whose reward is not worth the risk

Had a couple close calls, first in giant's hall (mist giants + cyclops are nasty) and just now in vault (wow poscheng really likes throwing a billion dudes at you without any cover).

I've been using the mold spear primarily for drain life, switching to Zarcuthra when I need mega DPS. Now I have sting, which is sort of between them -- but drain life is really nice, hard to give up. The stealth bonus helps a bit too. Might keep all 3 for a bit and see which one is most useful, I'm thinking Sting will come out on top. Zarcuthra is stronger, but Aggravate is just super awful when you're in a bind.

Good job securing Sting already. You might want to delay fights with Utgard-Loke until *WAY* later. That dude is no joke!

Cleared another level of giant's hall and came out with Ballista and the boots of Thror. I guess I kinda need to keep levitation as a swap? Not sure how critical it is when I'm not on the overworld.

Inside a dungeon you need levitation for Dragon Caves and the water dungeons (or swim).

OK rad, I think I can dump the lev boots in my house until I need them, then. Maybe I'll find some other lev source by the time I need it. Or maybe I'll die before it becomes important :)

Made it to bottom of Giant's Hall but took Hugo's advice and left before facing Utgard-Loke. Found more artefacts. Probably castle next.

At this point, I think you're strong enough to take on the Camelot knights. Just remember to stay hasted and teleport when the situation gets hairy. Beware of Sir Gawain's Mana bolt move.

You should get that curse removed from your Shield ASAP. Curses in PosChengband can do bad stuff from summoning monsters to draining mana to draining HP!

Getting my ass kicked everywhere. I rushed through Camelot easily, then went to do the cloning pits and got owned by clones of Father Hagen who gatlinged acid balls at me. Failed that quest in a hurry.

Subsequently went to Castle and killed his (their?) son. Several close calls here, meeting new monsters now and mostly don't know what they do.

Then started diving through Arena in telmora. Didn't realize you can't use items in the fight and lost to a greater titan, but only after getting a self knowledge pot which told me my life rating is 101/100. I guess I need to wait to get another couple of those before I start quaffing !New Life.

I guess I'm just going to avoid all other quests for now and just spleunk between Angband and Castle. I suppose I could also do Lonely Mountain? I can lev now that I have this nifty cloak.

On 21.2.2014 04:56 debo wrote:
Two questions:

a) Are ?Acquirement actually good? i.e. should I save mine?

b) Does ?Genocide work like in Nethack? Or is it like "banish on symbol"?

On 21.2.2014 04:58 debo wrote:
wow i don't even remember killing half of the uniques in that list. Maybe auto-more is hurting me :)

On 21.2.2014 05:01 HugoTheGreat2011 wrote:
?Acquirement generates an excellent or Artifact item. Most of my results are crap. The quality of item is better if you read it in deeper levels.

?Genocide removes monsters by symbol, except uniques. However, there are high-level non-unique monsters can resist Genocide. Example - Cyberdemons, if I'm not mistaken.

Sorry about the Cloning Pits quest. That quest is not a pushover.

On 21.2.2014 05:04 HugoTheGreat2011 wrote:
Lonely Mountain seems a reasonable place for leveling up. Smaug is the boss over there. If plan to fight Smaug, use !Speed and !Heroism at all times. Smaug breathes fire powerfully. But, he's not as bad as Utgard-Loke.

On 21.2.2014 05:08 HugoTheGreat2011 wrote:
Another thing: have Anti-Magic ready anytime you fight an Amberite. The blood curse can paralyze players who don't have Anti-magic, which can mean insta-death.

Got killed by some vortex that breathed for a lot of damage. Was bound to happen sooner than later, I was getting in over my head at this depth of Castle. Pretty much every monster had a trick and I had no idea what to expect.
