In anticipation of me playing PosChengband 6.0.0 at some point during the Easter holidays, I decided to test other races/classes than just hobbit rogue. The hobbit rogue feels like a decent combo, but I wanted something better than 'create food' as racial benefit.

My first attempt, al 1, was a traditional half-troll warrior. It died to suicide because I got annoyed with 'I' monsters spawning and breeding all over the place when I had killed uniques and wanted their loot. The character also fell prey to a lot of trap doors, because I didn't have any kind of detection available. Combined with the fact that devices constantly blow up when used by unskilled characters, the whole run lost its appeal.

Second attempt, al 2, was a high-elf rogue. Pete Mack uploaded Glas to the angband ladder and reminded me that high-elves get sInv, rLight and a bit of infravision. This is a lot better than the ability to convert mana to food. The run was decent, especially with sling (+3, +8) from the thieves hideout quest, combined with the pebble of David (+21 to dam). Sadly, @ died to a number of ambushes while trying to get from Outpost to the next town (Telmora?).

This gave me the chance to create current high-elf rogue, al 3, which is doing impressingly well. I have not had rBase this early in any other PosChengband game. Combined with monster detection and nice plusses on all weapons. Neither Freesia or the dogs were hard to fight due to favorable terrain and a lot of ?Phase Door. Robin Hood just walked towards @ while being killed by a hail of stones. Something similar happened to Smeagol, Wormtongue and Nami the Mate. Nami the Mate at least left a couple of traps to deal with.

Now that there's a new and shinier PCB 6.0.2 out, I feel tempted to play al 3 a bit more cautiously in the hope that he can survive to CL30 or beyond.

Devices blowing up has nothing to do with device skill. Cursed devices have a chance to explode. You need to either *id them or sell them to tell. Normal id is not enough.

It looks like you're right. I tested another half-troll warrior to verify this and he managed to get to CL21, clearing the Stronghold, without blowing up his _Identify (bought from a shop as early as possible). He is also spamming _Detect Traps and -Illumination (both found in the dungeon) without problems.
In my previous game with a half-troll warrior he also bought a _Identify, but blew up before he reached the bottom of the Stronghold (around DL12-DL14). Can staves become cursed in the Black Market or something similar? I can't remember if the staff was bought from BM or shop 6, but I'm pretty sure that it was bought in Outpost and brought along to the dungeon.
Anyway, my current half-troll warrior run is a lot more fun, so the class/race combo is something that is viable for my go at version 6. However, with the 6.0.2 I don't have to play continuously for a day to get anywhere, because the saving/loading bug should be fixed, so I should probably just start a new game in version 6 and play that instead of my current two version 5 games. They were only intended to find a race/class combo that would last for a full day of gaming.

Testing if I can figure out how to update my character dump.
I managed to get through the Stronghold and all the way to Morivant (so it was not Telmora I was thinking of earlier).
On the way to Morivant @ was ambushed by centipedes, and frumious bandersnatches. I have ever only fought bandersnatches one at a time and was surprised how deadly they are in groups. Spent half my ?Phase Door supply, but survived.
Currently @ is in the Orc cave dungeon and doing fine. Previous level had the Icky Queen in a bad spot with a carrion (tough to kill for a rogue) and several orcs nearby, so she was left alone.

Exploding devices can kill you too, apparently

I haven't paid attention to the amount of damage received from exploding items, but out of the three times I have had a wand/staff explode, none brought my characters near death.

Do you know how damage from exploding devices is calculated? What I'm interested in is figuring out what type of devices would be worth *id*-ing before use in order to avoid dying to an explosion.

This run was finished before I started on al 5. Forgot to upload it.

I learned my lesson about Grendel with this character. Don't meelee the ogre. In this game I was trying to pick up some of my ammo instead of going elsewhere on the level.
Also, being slowed by carrying that stupid statue is silly. I kept it to see what it would sell for in town, but I should have dropped it before engaging the ogres.
