Hopefully I can make this one my first dwarf win?

Pretty comfortable run so far. Maybe too comfortable, which is why my turn count's not so great.

I've been rather sloppy with my smithing experience allotment, by which I mean I've just been putting everything into stats that actually help me survive rather than trying to save up experience in case I find a forge. I think in the long run, this approach is better. I'd much rather be able to smith fewer artefacts to prepare for the throne room than die at 300 feet with 3000 experience banked.

Don't think I missed any artefacts so far, since I've been spamming my _treasures every level. It almost acts like a _foes. Depending on how the loot is distributed, I can take a good guess at where the vaults are, which means I can clear the surrounding zones first without waking up whatever nasties are in the vault and getting surrounded from behind while trying to take on a 200 feet out of depth Belegwath, for instance.

Uh unfortunate things that happened this run: was IDing my potions in a corner of the map when somehow an orc thief and some wargs barged in on me. I guess I must have made some noise or they just happened to be scouting that area. I was blind and helpless, so this orc thief stole my 3d4 bastard sword and ran down a set of stairs in fog of war. Not a huge loss, but super annoying nonetheless. Orcobol was kind of unlucky too. I didn't even use my gondolin weapon but he'd take one or two hits and run off. Eventually he found a set of stairs in fog of war too and I couldn't stop him.

Ulfang was a bit scary since I only had ~+13, +13 melee/evasion when I encountered him. So I quaffed !dex and 2 !quickness, took off my shield, and ate an herb of rage and took him out that way...

Was debating taking leaping since I was cut off from the map a couple times due to chasms, but I think I just don't care about missing forges as much as I once did, so I didn't succumb to the urge. I don't think you need much more than song of slaying, great speed, a couple damage rings, and a 3 dice sharpness weapon for Morgoth (I killed him last run with Saithnar, no rapid attack or momentum). You can probably save a requirement or two if you got rapid attack or momentum. And all of those you can make at pretty low smithing levels.

My stats still don't feel Noldor level...they're quite subpar for 650 feet imo. Just found a 2 use forge. No clue what I'll make here yet. Already have rPois, rCold, rFire, free action, clarity, con +1 amulet, and smithing kit.

Kinda worried about opportunist and low archery. No throwing weapons on me either. Maybe I should have kept some around. Not sure I can kill him even if I pop !quickness. We'll see.

Oh and somehow I always find Orcrist. It's not a bad weapon, but the lower your melee, the less you can take advantage of criticals. Furthermore, dwarves get axe affinity, not sword affinity. I'm not going to take parry just for Orcrist. Oh well.

Should have killed Smaug but got false floored before I could. _Treasures didn't reveal anything too interesting he was hovering over though. Just some healing potions for the most part. Though there was a +2 cloak of warmth nearby that I couldn't get to.

Calris is finally online thanks to a staff of sanctity I found on 800 feet. Haven't had much use for it yet...only time I whipped it out was for a pack of unmourned. -5 to-hit, no access to a shield, and cold vulnerability makes me think it simply isn't very good. I'm lugging it around because it's still a 4d11 weapon if used in the right circumstances. I suppose it's not bad for killing spiders and werewolves? I'd use it on cold drakes, but think it's too risky with that cold vulnerability. Basically whoever lands a hit wins the fight. Too RNG reliant for my taste.

Angrist is nice though. Been my solution to Kemenrauko, which are apparently scarier than any uniques the game can throw at me if they number more than two or three. Also wrecks serpents.

And Orcrist is my spider/vampire killer and perception stick. Also not bad against stuff like Ururauko since I need the extra evasion and to-hit against them. They don't have much protection or HP, just are very accurate and hurt a lot.

Just found Hauberk of Maedhros to replace my Mail Corslet of Venom's End from Turkano. That lets me remove my dwarf mask loremaster artefact, which was giving me -2 evasion.

I got strength drained from some dart trap but I'm leaving it for now...not worth blowing a potion of strength or restoration herb over imo.

And...revelations revealed a 4 enchanted forge on 850 feet. It's too bad I won't have access to it unless I can somehow find a mattock of belegost on this floor. Shovel isn't gonna be enough.

Turn count is atrocious. I'm 2k turns behind where I usually am. Forge luck so far have not been great either. I think even if I make it alive to Morgoth, it'll be a difficult fight, unless I find Anglachel or something. I wonder if my gameplay has gotten worse or simply my luck.

I feel that it was a mistake to dump my _treasures. Might have been smarter to dump my horn of thunder instead...since I have a _earthquakes now. I can perhaps even dump my loremaster dwarf mask.

Oh god. This is just like last run!

Well good bye forge. Finally got access to it thanks to some help from Kemenrauko and I get false floored 2 steps away. Even with Eye for Detail.

Even lost my shield of deflection since I had to drop it when I wielded the greatsword of nagorthrond...

Rebounded a little bit but I'm still quite a bit weaker by this point in the game than usual. At 24k turns, and still have yet to make a single artefact that boosts my survival. 36 smithing though, so I can make something useful if I can find some forges.

Jewelled Crown of Feanor was a great find.

It's a good thing I have both _treasures and _revelations this game. Without them, I probably would have made a judgment call to stop investing in smithing and make my masterpiece at the first 3 use forge I find.

Still no mattock so if I find one of those enclosed forges, I'll have to rely on my trusty friends, the Kemenrauko. I was debating making a Mattock of Belegost on my last forge, but decided against it. I'm behind on forges as it is.

I'm happy to say I have come to embrace the art of running away. I turn tail the second I meet a great drake (too risky with my melee/evasion), nameless one (can probably kill with Calris, but my evasion too low to reliably dodge hits), ancient spider (I lose even with poison resistance), or silent watcher (no rFear on anything other than my hammer, which is not sharp). And false floors don't upset me as much as they did. As long as I don't get false floored on 950 feet...aha.

Vampire lords are a nightmare for me. Can't outrun them. My melee/evasion are just too low to fight them head-on. I have had to blow a charge of _earthquakes, an herb of restoration, or a !quickness every single time I've met one so far. I never realized how much of a problem they were before.

On 16.4.2019 04:30 protopulse wrote:
WELL. My lack of forges is no longer an issue. 2 3 use forges and 1 4 use forge on this level. And it's 950 feet so no false floors.

Problem is it's a special vault. _Foes reveal Gorthaur and Gostir inside. Could be worse I suppose.

If I can survive this floor, I will definitely have some substantial equipment upgrades. Great speed is a major power spike. Not sure how I can combat my abysmal melee/evasion. Perhaps slapping concentration and master hunter on an artefact glove? Giving myself more constitution, or even strength probably won't help a whole lot unless it's for the throne room where I'll have song of slaying.

I think I made a bit of mistake this run in tossing Orcrist. And my shield of deflection, but that was out of my control (false floor). Orcrist would have helped much against those vampire lords.

But then again, inventory management on smiths is god awful to begin with. I can't even make room for herbs of healing. I feel like Calris contributes less to my odds of survival than Orcrist, oddly enough. Angrist covers a lot of threats so Calris just sits in my inventory unless I go against low evasion, non fire resistant, high hp monsters who don't use cold attacks...which is not very often. Just...trolls and undead?

I plan to dump _treasures next. With so many artefacts spawned already, I probably won't miss a lot of artefacts even if I go up and down the stairs 10 times. And with so many possible artefacts...the chance I get something useful is...not great.

Don't forget the Ancient sapphire serpents and Ancient adamant serpents that breathe potentially big cold damage

Yep. I just realized why my melee and evasion are so bad. 1 dexterity start isn't the only reason.

Hauberk of Maedhros (-2) [-3,2d6]...this artefact is probably a poor choice for my build. If I'm going to wear it, I should maximize protection, get critical resistance, and tank evasion so I have more experience to invest into melee. Too late for that now. I'm gonna try to get rFire and rPoison through a different piece of gear.

Got a bit hasty there I suppose. Slew Gorthaur but was low health. There was an unrelenting horror right behind him, so I decided back off and try to enter the Chambers of Thu from another angle. Wanted to regenerate a bit too. I met a Kemenrauko on my retreat, which I took out with no problems. Except the Kemenrauko left a trail of rubble behind him which let some ancient amethyst serpents and gwathrauko get in. I couldn't entirely see what it was I was against because of all that darkness and got cornered in before I understood what was happening. I should have backed out the same way I went in. The fight with Gorthaur was rather tough so I let my guard down when I slew him. RIP.

Yea, it's a shame. If I could have survived just a little bit longer, I could have had access to two forges, which would dramatically increase my odds of survival. Turn count is very tight, but I might be able to then sneak one or even two more forges in afterwards since I have a _revelations.

I'm unsure if there was much I could do about the unrelenting horror though other than killing it. If I lure it to one end of the map, and disappear from its vision, would it still be able to track me down? If so, I can't very well use the 2 forges without disposing of it.

I'll probably take a bit of a break and make a fresh attempt at this build later this week.
