(clevel: 21, dlevel:10) I thought it would be fun to make a character who wasn't allowed to use artifacts at all, but I couldn't think of a way to make it interesting (and I'm tired of Yeeks). Then I remembered that I had been planning on making a Manwe Priest (very, very few of them on the ladder) and had never made a kobold character that went anywhere. Thus, Viletouch was born. No princess quests and no artifacts (that includes junkarts as well) allowed and with no FF, I'm envisioning a melee/mindcrafting sort of character.

Normally, I wouldn't have posted until he made it to late Mordor or so, but look at that dagger he found in the Thieves Den! At first, I thought "Cool! A defender!", then I realized it was a *Defender*, which makes it by far the best item I've ever found during that quest.

Funny. My artifactless yeek swordmaster found a Dagger of Spinning in Thieves' Den. RNG gives rewards for trying for artifactless characters? Anyway, good luck with Viletouch!

(clevel: 25, dlevel: 25) Just finished Old Forest and warming up to start scumming the Sandworm hole in earnest. While I might go get Azog first, only having 1 attack, even using a dagger, is driving me nuts.

Old Man Forest dropped a nice randart sword, Durandil, plus something else and while hunting around for the best place to sell it all, I discovered that there is one 10k limit weaponshop, one 25k limit armor shop, and all the other weapon and armor stores are 5k, yuck (obviously haven't been to Khazad-dhum yet).

Viletouch has been almost frighteningly good at stealing things from shops. Note that his horn, his amulet, both rings, and another ring (which has since been dumped; it was a ring of acid) were all stolen from various shops, and Viletouch has yet to be caught.

Usually the RNG doesn't do any special favors for tough combos, but it seems to be making an exception this time.

Good luck!

(clevel: 29, dlevel: 31) Playing without using artifacts has probably been a larger change to my play-style than any race/class combo would be. For example, Deathwatch was nice because it was a good source of piety and the fixed artifacts sold for good money, but it wouldn't have been a big deal to skip it. Similarly, Viletouch will probably go around and kill the various dungeon guardians eventually, but since he's just going to sell the randarts they drop, its not very high on his to-do list.

Just survived a Death Fate on level 32. I actually knew about it, but totally forgot it was there. Can't recall the last time I had a Death Fate on other than level 1. Fortunately, Fangorn was there, and he cleaned up of it. Itangast disposed of Fangorn, but was fairly beaten up and Viletouch was able to take him out using that nifty crossbow he bought in the BM.

Money has been a bigger part of the game than usual. Viletouch has more of it thanks to selling artifacts, but he's also been spending more thanks to buying equipment from the BM.

(clevel: 33, dlevel: 40) Just finished the Gondolin Trolls. Mindwave does an excellent job of clearing out the bulk of the troll army and after clearing some space. Topping out at 74 mana, and its only that high when using his stat boosting equipment, Viletouch had zero shot at killing the Hrus or Ulik, so after killing the lesser trolls, he took advantage of the confusion to void-gate to the stairs.

Before that he finished the Mallorn quest fairly easily thanks to that big crossbow in his Bree home. The same weapon (plus a stack of phase door scrolls) took care of Uvatha, and Eol (who I was really worried about) wasn't bad (had to drink a potion of healing, but never in serious danger) thanks to an anti-summoning tunnel.

Viletouch's kit is coming together nicely. Its not embarassing for his level, which is nice. In the late game, most characters' kits are a mixed bag of a few great items and then stuff that's ok filling in the rest of the slots. I suspect that if he survives to that late game, Viletouch's kit will initially look like a normal kit for that stage of the game, except that its all filler with none of the really good pieces. That's actually better than I originally expected.

The Eol and Mallorn quests shot to the top of Viletouch's to-do list, since the rewards for both are rather good ego items. Up until getting that Mallorn armor, Viletouch had been wearing some armor of resistance, though his dagger really covered everything already. That dagger has been wonderful, except that it only does the damage of a (+10,+10) dagger. Since I'm probably not going to be able to put enough points into Magic to give him the mana necessary for Mindcraft to be his primary offense (plus, its really not strong enough for the late game, IMO, so why bother?), he's going to need a better weapon before too much longer. He's collected a few decent ones along the way, but nothing spectacular. Hopefully one will come along reasonably soon, and its appearance will tell Viletouch when the time has come to put that dagger on the shelf.

No dungeon towns in Orc Caves, Old Forest, or Rhun, which is too bad. Moria is probably up next. Hopefully there will be a dungeon town there.

(clevel:35, dlevel:46) Found not one, but two dungeon towns in Moria, and Viletouch isn't even all the way through it yet. Slaughtering packs of orcs, trolls, and ogres has been great for his piety and its moving up nicely. The second town had a rare jeweler with nice ammys of weaponmastery and trickery in stock. I couldn't decide, so Viletouch bought 'em both and is still pondering which to wear. +speed,Dex,Stealth, and rNexus, or +str,Dex,to-hit,to-dam, and rDisen. Hmm. The speed and dex are nice, but Viletouch is starting to get to depths where high resist holes can kill him. rDisenchant is more important, but I can't decide if it outweighs the speed bonus. Of course, taking either over his current ammy will badly cut his mana, but I think its worth it. Probably.

(clevel: 39, dlevel:70) Necromancer is dead and Viletouch is clearing out the potential Ring-bearers, with just Glaurung and Ar-Pharazon to go. Ar-Pharazon might get skipped as Viletouch hasn't found anything that gives waterbreathing yet.

Feagwath coughed up both Thain and Fingolfin, making me rue the artifactless course Viletouch has set for himself, but that's the way it goes.

Remarkably, he's STILL using that dagger from the Thieves' Den. While Viletouch has been pretty offensively challenged, so far he's been able to do enough damage to get the job done.

Glaurung always gives me the most trouble of the Ring-bearers (other than Sauron, of course), so Viletouch will probably finish the lesser dungeon guardians first (Glass Golem, White Balrog, and Trone are left). It'd be nice if Manwe would hurry up and give me the rest of his quests already. I'm starting to worry that it won't happen in time. Its not terribly important to the game plan to do them all, but it would be nicel.

Oh, resolved the amulet question by wearing Trickery most of the time, switching to Weaponmastery when he needs rDisenchantment for something (like the Necromancer).

I can't believe that you can get this far without artifacts, perhaps I missed how your are doing it, but how do you deal with Nazgul?

BTW, your amulet is cursed.

(clevel:40, dlevel:98) Well, that was stupid. "There's no way Mirkwood spiders can do that much damage to me in one round..."

Of course, if they are level 95 Mirkwood spiders, some of them might get double moves, even with Viletouch at +32 speed, and attack twice, in which case, they COULD do that much damage in one round. I could have healed, or teleported away, or tried to teleport the spiders away... Oh well.

It was fun, but Viletouch needed a major league ego weapon (a big dice weapon with good bonuses, and double ego, with both egos being something useful) to have any chance agianst Sauron, to say nothing or Morgoth.

I really wasn't looking forward to doing the scumming necessary to find a (+15,+15) Vampiric Slaughter Axe of Extra Attacks (an acidic foo of slaying would have been good, too, as would various other nifty combos).

I'm getting increasingly impatient with scumming. Viletouch spent a total of 30 minutes in the Sandworm hole, and his stats really weren't even close to being maxed. I think the universe is telling me to take some time of from ToME (and other 'bands, too, this time).

Serin,

Thanks, yeah, took care of that amulet thing.

Nazgul were a big concern of mine. Viletouch didn't have anywhere near the mana to mindwave them to death, wielding the dragon horn meant no missle weapons, without artifacts most weapons just melt away, and no junkarts means no light absorption.

So how did Viletouch handle Nazgul? Well, Uvatha was a piece of cake. Good crossbow+lots of ammo+phase door scrolls = dead Nazgul. As for the rest... I'm afraid we'll never know what I would have done, because Viletouch never ran into another one. He ran into lots and lots of black 'W's, but none of them ever proved to be a Nazgul. I never actually come up with a good plan.

if you happen to try another, might I suggest someone with high archery? (an archer or ranger would be best here). You've inspired me to try it so I will and let you know how it works. :D

ick. Well, artifactless would be a challenge, but not a very fun one. I like nifty gadgets.
Well, if you needed added damage you could always go for corruptions and use demonblade. Manwe would give you the plus 40something to your to hit, demonblade would give you 45ish additional damage (90ish additional damage against evil along with the radius attack). Speed would be a bit hard (especially if you go for corruptions, at least Manwe hooks it up in that department). If you weren't going to have enough magic to make mindcraft feasible, I would maybe suggest to stop it at 25 (get targetted teleport and somet other useful spells) and just go all melee. Put the extra points in magic device and carry around 10 wands of manathrust to kill Nazguls (or my favorite tactic, run away).

The artifactless thing has been bugging me, so I've decided to try and win with one before taking a break. Going with 98 random quests, too.

To make it a little easier and reduce my chance of getting frustrated/bored and quitting, I'm going with a wood-elf ranger rather than a melee character.

On the one hand, this will make the challenge a LOT easier. Not as much easier as it would be for a mage, but still a fair amount easier (no artifact launchers or ammo is a hindrance, but not as big as it is for a melee character).

On the other hand, Spanky2 will be a tribute to the original Spanky, my very first ToME character who made it anywhere. The original Spanky was a high-elven ranger with moderately messed up stats and skills. I never made another serious effort with a ranger and its time to fix that.

Spanky2 will be a wood-elf rather than a high-elf, and will be the character I would have created back then, had I known what I was doing. Plus, the archer-types are my favorite classes to play. All 294 skill points will go into bow-mastery, Conveyance, and Divination, but he'll need 4 FF rewards between Conveyance and Divination to work. Everything else will come from FF. Should be interesting.

Will do. I've been playing with no or very few random quests for so long that I forgot that is actually difficult to get through the mainline dungeons with 98 quests. Keep losing characters stupidly in Mirkwood and the like. When I get someone to level 35 or so and solidly into Mordor, I'll post him.

Excuse me,Elliot, but i would like to suggest that you change the name of your character, if you please. since viletouch is a currently registered name under my property. i am sure that you can find a lot of creative names for it. i hope you have no issues on correcting this as soon as possible.


regards

wow, this character is older than my son and now someone is complaining that you are using "their" registered name?! :P seems people don't have anything better to do then to look up obscure games which only a handful of people play, then look at the character name to make sure that "their" name isn't being used. Elliott, what are you going to do? :S

Ha!

That HAS to be a bot sent out to scour the universe for all things named Viletouch and provide an automated response. Well, hmm, they do have the anti-bot stuff for posting, so perhaps its a real person. If so, yikes. They must REALLY not have much to do.

Heh, no, I'm not especially worried about the legal consequences as this character is well over 3 years old and probably pre-dates this guy's ownership of the name. Plus, I have no idea how I'd change the name at this point.

In case anyone is curious started playing DDO a couple years ago and then switched to WoW about 14-15 months ago (not long after my 2nd daughter was born). I do play Heng/Entro a bit for variety as I do still love 'bands and the community, but my time spent is sadly a small fraction of what it once was.
