Taking a break from Engineers for a day plus switching races seems to have done well for me.

I need to get some See Invisible, though...

Running 2.4.0 now. Clockwork Carbine is weaker, particularly Fire Lead Slugs. Fortunately, either the person who weakened it ignored Clockwork Chassis, or deliberately left Forward Cannons stronger. Either way, Forward Cannons is my new primary weapon.

The new version isn't all bad, though. Certain things seem more common, like Lanterns. The renaming of some mechanisms was good, too.

Anyway, I was plowing up as usual, doing quest after quest, but here at 1850' I decided to stop. Almost immediately I picked up Edison, solving my SI problem. Then Gauss fixed ResBlind, and Dupin held that and added speed. So, now I figure I want to wait on my Steam Mecha speed bonus, and *something* to give me some better elemental resistance. My two deepests deaths were to Ice and Confusion. I want to have both covered before going much higher.

A trap and the desire for a quest took me to 1700', and that's where I am now. Whew, was that quest nearly a mistake! I nearly died to Chain Lightning lightning balls in the way I did to Selenite Administrator ice balls.

Though I did pick up Phineas Fogg Le Loup Blanc on that trip up. The gloves are great: I have speed +12 unhasted. The Mask seems nice enough, but I can't wear it right now. Blindness and Confusion from the glasses are too important to give up.

I really need the Steam equivalent of Elven armor right about now. Basic elemental attacks are starting to hurt a LOT.

Make that 0.4 not 2.4, obviously, heh.

Ah, too bad. Black Mariahs are very bad news. A mid-level monster that can breathe nether drop no treasure and are only worth moderate exp. They're in a close race with Troglodyte Beastlords for the nastiest monsters for their level in the game.

My 40th level characters will flee from Black Mariahs unless they have really high nether resist.

OK, I have an engineer going, level 20 (so I can't replace the current post with it), parked at 2050' to retrench, and I just found as my first artifact the Eye of Ra, lying on the floor at 2100'. This artifact seems very very nice. Just how lucky was I to find it? Is this an artifact I could expect to wear all game long? +10 to mana and health seems big, heh.

On 10.3.2005 22:26 Neil Stevens wrote:
Wheee... waited a while, got an amulet of *regeneration* and breeches of travel, so I felt I had the resistances to start speed climbing again, now at 1900' I find and Electric Lamp and a Pocket Lantern.

I'd better not mess this one up.

On 10.3.2005 22:54 Neil Stevens wrote:
Figures, I say "I'd better not mess this up", and who do I run into on my next trip down. Black Mariahs, who killed my best Engineer ever, and the Marquis de la Tour, who killed my most recent good character. Teleported the latter away so I could have time to hasten and kill him, teleported myself away from the former and recalled off the level.

Oh I'm rolling, especially now that I picked up John Henry on my last trip in the dungeon. Also passed my last sheet on here, so I can actually update that now.

Of course, I could die at any time to a monster I've never seen before. Oh, well.

On 11.3.2005 01:37 Neil Stevens wrote:
Just answered my own question from above. Now I have a decision: Do I wear Ra + Ring of Resist Bewilderment, or Isis + Ring of Celerity? I'm qutting for the day so I'll have time to think and read answers.

On 11.3.2005 02:25 wrote:
Ra is pretty darn good. While you were definitely lucky to fint it, my current competition character also found it around the same depth, so I guess that's where it tends to show up. Vaults seem pretty common in Steam, and vault excavating can be extremely rewarding in terms of equipment.

Is much of your offensive load coming from melee? If so, you could go with Loup Blanc and the rBewlider ring. If you're still with the carbine (if so, I'll be curious to see if you can kill late game monsters with it), I'd go with RA for the extra health. Having the extra speed is great, but you're resists aren't very good yet, and the extra health should help more against insta-kills, especially since you can already haste yourself.

On 11.3.2005 19:19 Neil Stevens wrote:
Despite the weakening of Carbine in 0.4, I'm still using gadgeteering for combat almost exclusively (only falling back to ray guns when I need a precise, long-range hit). Lately I've still used Forward Cannons for most stuff, Flamethrower or Graviton Ray when that's doesn't work, isn't enough, or there are a lot of guys to hit. I keep at a distance for all combat.

So, I agree with you on the resistances, and will keep the current pair in.

On 11.3.2005 22:52 Neil Stevens wrote:
Because I feel I'm chugging along too well, I'm going to park at this depth a while.

Oh, and on vaults, I find that those *aren't* my best source of items. Treasure chests give me much better stuff than vaults do.

On 12.3.2005 02:53 Neil Stevens wrote:
Whoa, he did a LOT of damage, didn't think that would kill me, and besides, I thought he'd die with one more hit, heh.

On 14.3.2005 16:01 wrote:
Yeah, chests are REALLY nice in Steamband, but they are also fairly uncommon. Vaults, on the other hand, are a dime a dozen once you get down to a decent depth. With auto-scum on, I'd guess that I run into a vault at least every 3 or 4 starting at around 1600-1700' and they get more and more common as I descend.

Chests (and hot boxes and satchels and the like), on the other hand, I find much less frequently. Perhaps 10-20, in total, during a game at that goes all the way to the end.

Ah, that's too bad. Those elemental princes are pretty straight-forward opponents. If your resistance against their 'type" is 100+%, then they'll barely be able to scratch you. If you're 60-95%, then they can hurt you, but you can probably take them if you're careful. Under 60%, and, well, they hit pretty darn hard.

My version of Grimm had a similar fate. Trying to go after Ether Stalkers with 13% or so Ether Resistance wasn't a good idea. Back-to-back ether breaths was enough to kill him.
