My 2nd attempt. currently at CL 28, DL 35. I only made a single trip back to town, from DL 7. Otherwise ironman style. I'm playing like a heavily armored tank, even though SP are reduced. Feels Dwarvish. Swapping between a mace (defender) when I need FA or Regeneration, and a tulwar (holy avenger) for more damage. Both are priestly with SI. Haven't found a single stat gain potion yet, but a potion of Augmentation made up for that. I'm not sure how long ago nexus-based stat scramble in vanilla became temporary, but I'm sure happy it did. Twice my strength ended up in the low single digits after a nexus attack.

Why did you pass up on Narthanc and Dethanc? Though not 'priestly', they deal far greater damage up close and can reach out with their activation. I'd keep a light priestly weapon as a swap for "prayer time" until I found a truly great priestly weapon.

I certainly thought about holding on to the artifact daggers (and did for a while). But both of the priestly weapons give see invisible, and I was feeling blind without that. Also, I like the low failure rates on those prayers that keep me alive (Heal, ProtEvil, Portal, OOD). With AC >100 and ProtEvil and regeneration, I can plunk away at bad guys in a corridor for a long time before before I finally need to heal, portal, or TO.

A quick swap to pray, and then right back at knife-work with the daggers is what I did, until finding Anduril and getting stats high enough to wield it.

CL 29, DL 36. Found the short sword Dagmor. Finally, a non-Priestly weapon that's powerful enough to justify swapping in at the expense of spell failure rates (+2 attach speed, poison brand, slay animal, good bonuses, regen). Also found Celegorm, armor of Elvenkind, and my first dungeon spell book.

On 28.2.2018 07:55 Ingwe Ingweron wrote:
I still think the 'thancs would currently outperform Dagmor in damage to non-resistant creatures until @'s Dex gets up, at some point reaching a cross-over point that Dagmor does better. As for spell failure rates, I never experienced a decline in failure rate because I inscribed the principal weapon and the priestly weapon each with @0, and used "x" to quick-swap before any prayer with a negatively affected fail rate. Even that doesn't last, as with increased Wis and experience levels, the failure rate starts to be unaffected.

I guess @ was in a cooperative mood today.
