I don't know if heavy protection builds work against dragons or Morgoth. This was supposed to be a heavy protection build, but I can't seem to find a shield...at all. Not a single one spawned for 650 feet.

Meanwhile RNG gave me a nice greatsword early on, gauntlets of swordplay, and now Finrod. Works for me I guess. I favor either 2 handed weapons or subtlety on one handed anyways. Maybe I'm not playing sword and board correctly, but I always find when I try it I barely do any damage and engagements just stall for a long time and monsters get to run away when they're low.

The way I understand it is you can focus on either good evasion or good protection. If you focus on good evasion, you barely get hit. If you focus on good protection, you get hit a lot but few hits goes through the protection especially with critical resistance. If you try to do both, usually you get hit a lot and when you get hit, it hurts. Without a kite shield and protection rings, this isn't a very effective protection build.

This IS a very efficient killer though. Hope I can find a source of rCold soon. Else my potions supply is going to take a hit soon.

Not as efficient as I thought. Took over 100 turns to kill a 250 feet out of depth Draugluin.

Finding so many artefact weapons this game. Glend, Dagmor, Aeglos, Orcrist, Glamdring, Delmereth, and now Narsil. I'd love to keep them all but my backpack is only so big. What to keep...

Getting to 950 feet is nice and all but I'm not sure on this build what my win condition is. Finding a sharpness weapon is the easy way. But without one, I don't think I have the damage to kill Morgoth. Could grab strength + concentration + momentum? Would it be enough? I for sure need more !strength though. I have 0 currently. 0 in almost 20k turns. Want at least 2 or 3.

Well, not counting the one I used for IDing the potion.

Well, there's my Noldor Fingolfin win. Going to wrap up my Noldor Finarfin win next.

God this elf was strong. At first I thought he was pretty shabby, compared to Legistel, the subtlety Noldor Finarfin that I started around the same time as this one. Then after I found Narsil I took two weapon fighting, and he quickly became a monster. It wasn't two weapon fighting that made him so strong though, I think, since immediately after grabbing the skill, there wasn't much difference. I only took the skill so I could get resists and extra light radius from Narsil. I'd often swap to Glend to kill serpents, deathblades, and kemenrauko because I was sick of how long it took to kill stuff with two weapon fighting. After I put a few more points into melee and evasion, and grabbed song of sharpness, then woven themes, I begin to really feel the build coming together.

Probably my strongest character so far...and I was holding back XP to see what I could get away with. I racked over 50 attack at one point in the throne room. Wasn't worried about dying to Morgoth for a second. And didn't have to use Saithnar once. Didn't use Aeglos either now that I think about it. I love Aeglos, but I dislike having to constantly weapon swap against things resistant to cold.

Found Ringil for the first time this game (outside of Christmas start). Also the pair of longswords Orcrist and Glamdring. Don't know what dropped Ringil...wish I could check somehow. There was so much rubble around me I didn't see it until after cutting out all the sils.

Not sure why I keep finding the mithril longsword artefacts after the throne room, and never before. Found Celeg Aithorn twice now, always right after throne room. And now I've found Ringil in the throne room, but after Morgoth died. Would be way more useful earlier.

Was taking some suboptimal skills more for thematic reasons and to try them out than for gameplay reasons. Controlled retreat's worthless when everything wants to run away from you...was going to take song of staying as well. Decided to hold off in case I needed the experience for getting more attack or song to kill Morgoth. Charge didn't do much for me either. Follow-through would have been more optimal. Master hunter turned out better than I expected. I took it mostly because I was pumping perception already to help me find traps and secret doors, and barely had any skills in the perception tree so it was cheap.

Could have taken concentration as well since it's so so good, especially for the throne room and coupled with flanking. I didn't take the loremaster skill line so it wouldn't even be expensive to get. Riposte would have made this elf a god. Didn't want to build this character similarly to my Noldor Finarfin though. Ended up needing neither.

Having more will and protection feels really nice overall. Never had to worry about random entrancement or stat drain.

Oh one thing I realized this run was rings of damage <+1> and rings of strength <+1> are actually quite different. Rings of strength are great if you need strength drain resistance. Rings of damage shine when you are strength capped or would be if you drank a !strength. If you had 6 strength and a 2.5 lb. off-hand weapon with momentum and two weapon fighting, for instance, you would be over the strength limit for that weapon. You need 8 strength to cap it after !strength (2.5×2+3) and you would have 6+3=9 strength. If you swap your rings after damage rings instead, you'd have 4 strength and +2 damage. You would be under the strength cap after !strength since 4+3=7. However, you will do 1 dice side more damage because damage rings ignore strength caps. So strength rings are better when you have heavier weapons that you don't strength cap on.

Hmm...I could have put more points into attack versus evasion couldn't I? After like 25 evasion, you get diminishing returns unless you take riposte.

31 artefacts this game...didn't even know it was possible for that many to spawn in a game, which makes it even more miraculous I found Ringil. The more artefacts you find, the less likely it is for you to find more.
