Flamed out of the Angband competition, and given my lack of game time, don't think I have enough time to better my result. So, giving mages a twirl in Fangband. A glance at the mage spell list inspires in me deepest ennui. The things that they do seem to be good at are: mesmerization spells (conf, slow, etc.), teleportation, and magic item usage. So, damage will be what wands Anarra can scrounge up, and Beguiling and Phasewalking are the abilities that she'll focus on. The trip to Amon Rudh was ... a bit more exciting that she wanted, but much duller than she feared. Damage output is a major major problem, especially after she blew up the one wand of lightning she found. Anyway, paranoia, as usual, is the mantra of the day.

Yeah, my best attempt from like 50 got to clev18; I should get back to some development work soon. Let me know what you think of the mage spells as you go on.

Early on, a mages assests are: Detect monster, and run away!!!!! Still, detect monster will get a companion far, though not safely. Anarra calculates that she is just three sources of R*** and three attack wands short of the next specialty :P Basically wandering around, picking on low hp monsters; strangely Qulythugs have been really good for xp. Strangely enough, items of any kind have been a bit scarce...

Level 19, Amon Rudh 29, 1 unique slain

Nick-- The comp character was, how shall I say it, a bit of a challenge. The low hp eventually got to me. My entry was pretty decent-- level in mid 30's. However, the one month restriction hits me pretty hard because I don't have much time to play right now, and so I couldn't really recovered after getting killed.

I'll go through the priest spells in their entirety soon. The mage spells, at least early on, seem to be pretty similar in power to the priest spells (which is not a good sign for the mage spells, as I've always been under the impression that the priest spells, before books 4,5,6,7, were kinda weak). I remember thinking that the druid and necro spells looked quite a bit better, but we'll see. If Anarra fails, I'll probably try a different class next time, though I'll eventually want to verify my pet theory on the mage spell list at some point.

Probably should have mentioned that book 3 priest is kinda ok as well :)

Anarra had been sweating bullets for a while, having just a wand of stinking cloud and frost bolt. That meant having to actually use her mana on attack spells-- not something she is very good at. Still, there were monsters that were vulnerable to that (though many were not, leading to a string of close calls). Progress, however, was inexorably made, and she picked up a couple or rods and a wand of shrapnel (yummy!) which she used to take out Ulwarth.

At that point, she had been bouncing around Amon Rudh 28-29 for a while (the bottom was considered to dangerous, with her dainty hp and lack of the appropriate defences), but I hate being stuck just below 30. So, she shlepped to Tol-In-Gaurhoth. One thing lead to another, and she is down at T-I-G 35. The last recall was particularly profitable-- found three hammers of ***slay troll***, which finally gave her some capital to work with. As it turned out, the blackmarket had a =oCON and 3 shrapnel wands for sale. Things are looking up.

Level 24, Tol-In-Gaurhoth 36, 2 uniques slain

I did the same thing with Silence - hope that's not an omen :)

One thing I'm aiming for in 0.2.0 is for at least some characters to have an easier time in wilderness, so going straight for the dungeons isn't such a no-brainer. Not that I've done much yet (apart from close the shapechange exploit hole).

On 1.3.2006 13:28 wrote:
Nick, you definitely jinxed me :)

This death was definitely a learning experience-- I suspect that mages should be playing pretty fast, and part of that is learning what monsters should be avoided at all costs. Got sloppy with a mystic, and he double-moved Anarra to death in one turn. C'est la vie. My earlier characters were a bit slow, so this was a good test run.

Mystics are _really_ nasty - probably my least favourite monster (as a player). Better luck next time.
