[Dlvl 1] [Clvl 3]

Is it just me, or are my posts getting earlier and more frequent? ;-) This is my NIGHTMARE MODE character that I'm running while I wait for blackreaver to finish up Jedi. Again, I scummed for the Eat-Magic mutation, but this time took only about 15 minutes. Two previous iterations of this character died (once at clvl 6, attempting the Thieves quest too soon, and once at clvl 4, underestimating Grip's relative strength).

However... I just picked up (+3) Speed mutation! Hopefully this character can make it a little farther at least. This character is becoming strangely reminiscent of when I played my tourist...

[Dlvl 5] [Clvl 12]

Freddy Kreuger has survived his first game day of adventuring!!

Though, the last mutation (albino) REALLY is not nice >_< And two of my 5 random stat ups have been INT...

And, in retrospect, I might be very short on Healing in mid-levels...

So what's nightmare like? Just harder?

The things I've noticed so far:

1) All monsters hasted

2) Shopkeepers charge much more

3) AFC (?) activates every midnight

4) Saving Throw much decreased (Floating Eyes are DEADLY!)

5) Some very OOD monsters (Ansalom the Dark Wizard (lvl 7) sighted in Angband 7 !)

6) All monsters start awake.

Er... excuse me, Ansalom is native to dlvl 55.

DOH!

Died on my lvl 12 quest against Gorbag... I'm starting to suspect Uniques also have more HP: I hit him full on with two Star Dusts, which should have done 120 out of his 400 HP, but it only took him down 1 star... so either some crazy regeneration or more HP.

And, characteristically, an Orc Shaman got the killing blow with a curse, as I was running away at hasted 3+10 speed.

If they didn't change this from Z (and there's not much need, I think ;-)), you can look up all effects of 'nightmare' here:

Thanks Jergen.

--- Combat ---

1. Damage of monster spells and melee attacks is doubled. Monsters never miss in melee and spells never fail.

Ouch... I think that's the brunt of the pain... double damage, and never miss. That, coupled with Double Monster HP and Haste Monster. Wait, so AC is only good for damage reduction in nightmare mode then? (e.g. nothing above 150 matters, since damage reduction caps at 60% at 150).

And double spell damage!? How exactly is a player supposed to survive the end-game when a Mana Storm can do 1000 damage!?

Well, the notes do say that not only is Nightmare mode totally unfair, but also that while a very good player MIGHT beat it, its not really set up to be winnable.

Hmm, ok, so if that's the case, what race/class combo would have the best shot...

On 31.8.2005 20:28 dzhang@its.caltech.edu wrote:
Hm... ok, so it MIGHT still be winnable despite the Mana Storms and more powerful Disintegration Balls... IIRC, the damage is only if you're at the center of the storm. So, if you never let the opponents who Mana Storm get direct LoS on you, the most you'll take from a Mana Storm is halved to the normal 500. Still, that'll take a LOT of speed.

I think Beastman is the right idea; to scum for a good starting mutation (though, Eat Magic is probably not it). Maybe "Holy Wrath"? I.e. the one that allows you to banish/remove all Evil monsters in LoS from the level.

As for class... I have NO idea, but I get the feeling meleeing the Serpent might not be so smart. Maybe a Ranger or an Archer? Or, if one decides to scum for tons of !oRestoreMana, a Crusade High-Mage?

On 31.8.2005 21:36 Elliott946@aol.com wrote:
The obviously powerful classes seem like good bets. Archers can be very powerful and might work, though a Ranger is nearly as good with good spellcasting to boot. Thinking the key would be crowd management and having minions (keeping the monsters busy attacking your charmed/summoned monsters rather than you) I tried a sexy bard, but sexy definitely isn't the way to go. The fast, extra hard hitting townspeople are a major threat to a level 1 sexy character. Maggot and Lionheart killed me every time.

I've played a little bit, and a few changes from Juergen's spoiler are apparent. First, monsters don't ALWAYS hit in melee. They certainly do double damage, but I'm not even sure they're more accurate than normal. Second, monsters CAN be confused.

On 31.8.2005 23:43 juergen@beer.com wrote:
Well I'm playing a good old Z2.4 char right now but after that I think I'll definitely try Hengband.
Maybe they think Hengband is harder anway, so your nightmares can be a bit more harmless? ;-)

BTW is there a Heng starters guide anywhere?
I think I'll die enough even with a bit help...

Elliot:

Hm... So, the other class that I think has the ABSOLUTE best chance of winning in nightmare mode is Mindcrafter, thanks to its "THE WORLD" power, which stops time for a few actions (3 on average, I think?), but eats up all your SP.

So, if you have an INCREDIBLY large supply of !oRestoreMana, you might be able to kill Oberon and the Serpent without them ever doing any damage to you.

Brief estimate of how many !oRestoreMana it would take for the Serpent:

60,000 HP. Psycho-Spear does 225 damage on average. Say during the 3 actions, one to quaff another !oRestoreMana, 2 to Psycho-Spear. That's 450 damage per !oRestoreMana. Assuming that when time is stopped the Serpent doesn't regenerate, then that takes 133 !oRestoreMana. Then, we have to consider that even at clvl 50 and 18/220 WIS, you have 14% fail...

---

You're right that the monsters don't always hit in melee, but they hit often enough that I suspect it might be a 95% hit rate (farming worms at the beginning with a Monk... they hit a LOT more than they should).



Juergen: Definitely try Hengband! It's one of the best variants out there, with many many different race/class/personality/school combos to try. And, while I don't want to bash ToME, Heng also seems to be well-debugged and game-balanced, so that there aren't any exceedingly easy wins through loopholes.

My guess is that if you can do OK in Zang (i.e. live consistently up to clvl 30), then you won't have any problems in Heng. If you're really stuck, I put up a very short Newbie guide on "Rei Hino," my Forcetrainer on the ladder.

Cheers,

Dave

Nightmare mode sucks. At this point its too hard for me.

I'm gonna join you guys and make a Ranger.

I never understood how Stop Time could be useful, given its cost. And when the world is stopped potions do not flow, so your plan would not work ;-) But I'm not sure if a Staff of the Magi would work ... I imagine it would. So Stop Time for all your mana to get 3 turns. One of those turns needs to be spent regaining mana and the other stopping time again (unless you wish to spot the Serpent a move), if this is even possible. If not, then you just blew chunks for 1 or 2 free moves.

I don't know, there probably is a combo in there some place, but my Mindcrafter winner simply ignored this ability, and meleed the serpent with Vorpal Blade ...

FWIW, there is a cap on the doubling of monster hp at 30,000.
