Dive, dive, dive.

Use your teleport spells to remove and/or park big names while you clear out vaults. Heck, with your spells, you could just kill most stuff at this point. You're thousands of feet shallow right now. Your gear will catch up as you go down. Just detect well to avoid nether breath at this point, and find ResNether.

Calris can be uncursed by using many scrolls of Enchant Weapon To-Hit. After getting into positive figures you will have a chance to randomly break the curse with each additional enchantment.

Or just read a scroll of *Remove Curse* ( You seem to have 2 of them in your home inv.) When you're wearing it. emphasis on wearing, you need to have it on or otherwise it won't be uncursed. Then read mass amounts of ?Enchant to-hit on it until it has at least +0 value on to-hit.

You should get couple hundred more hp once CON is 18/200.

I am clv48. How deep do you think I can dive? (I am a slow diver, I know.) Is dlv65 ok for me now or should I wait for Calris? (I met Mr. Skull Druj. Ha! I was so lame fighting him. Then I noticed he slowed me down dramatically. Almost died. That's why I am so cautious.)
Do you think I should swap the ring of int for some dex or con band?

With all the stuff you've found I wonder why you still lack any wield-able gloves. Just in case: Mages can wield any gloves that give free action or dexterity without a penalty.

Something else: It is rarely a good idea to use healing potions to kill uniques and the higher ones are for the Morgy fight or emergencies. Saruman and some odd Giant in a Vault? Think you can't beat them without heal? Use teleport other!

237.4 lbs makes you slow -2. No need to waste that speed...
some of the following might only be in your inventory because you just picked them up. In that case ignore :)

e) 5 Books of Magic Spells [Resistances of Scarabtarices] {!d!k!v}
It cannot be harmed by the elements.

The dungeon books cannot be destroyed and you have more than 18/150 so they cannot be stolen. Carry only one of e) f) and g) and safe 40lbs

i) drop at home, rarely needed in dungeon
j) your spell should do, drop or sell
l) drop at home, too valuable to carry without imCold
m) drop at home, with hlife you'll never need them as even high draining attacks won't drain that much
n) use
o) kill or drop at home for extra *id*
p) you have the book, no need for that one


It might also be a good idea to carry those *destruction* scrolls as a 0% fail for situation where you find yourself surrounded without mana...

Matthias, thanks for the hits!

Here are my answers for the things you pointed out:
1) I don't have hands protection because I haven't found any dex/FA gloves yet.
2) Do you mean teleport one of the nasties and finish the other one? Am I strong enough for Saruman?
3) Well, although I keep on finding Raal's ALL THE TIME, I thought I should keep the higher books just in case. Yep! It does not make sense. I'll drop them or sell.
4) I sometimes get touched by some nasties. That's why I carry those mushrooms and potions of RLL, when my stats get lowered. I can't find a better solution to be safe.
5) Ok, I could recall with the spell, but speed charges 12 mana. All right... it is not much... :)
6) I don't get what you mean by "extra *id* by dropping potion of SK at home"

Anyway, shall I proceed with Mr. Saruman now?

He means any time you see a monster in your way that will be hard to kill without using up your valuable healing, teleport it away. If you want to plunder a vault, get inside and zap every dangerous thing you see with teleport other, then kill the rest.

Potions of Self-Knowledge are worthless unless you want to know what an item is doing for you without using a scroll of *ID* on it. Just destroy/drink them all at once.

Teleport Saruman away. I try not to kill any uniques until I absolutely have to, or at deeper than level 80.

Heh...no problem.

A mage of your level should be at level 95-98 (you'll have to deal with Sauron if you go lower). I've got a lvl38 human paladin with a slew of resist holes currently at 90. That's a bit extreme, but you get the idea.

Dive into the 90s and start clearing things out. Genocide problem monsters like Z, Q, G (if you have problems with Dread packs). Use your detection skills to scout out the level. Teleport dangerous things, kill easy things. Once you finish your kit and feel comfortable at that depth, start taking out the dangerous uniques that Morgoth can summon, then go kill him.

Summary: Put on:
Calris, Umbar, Narja (for tulkas), Palantir. Dor Lomin.

Details:
Life is sooo much easier with ESP, and Dor Lomin is the perfect helm for that. Umbar will then give you max cons even without tulkas making room for narja.
If you do that you are aggrevating anyway, so you could switch in Calris for resDis, what I consider a lot more important than nether.
While we are at switching in aggrevation items: The palantir gives another 2 int :)

If I didn't miss anything you'll gain:
resLight, resDark, resNether, resDis, 5 cons, 2 int, ESP, +50% xbow damage; all at the cost of aggrevation. Sounds really worth it...

You are playing at an unneed high risk of dieing with only 703 hp. You should defenitly try to get to 18/200 cons. Those 4 points should give you at least another 250hp, what will also help you collecting potions. Collecting healing potions of all three types should be your first priority now.l Speed higher than +20 is nice but not needed.

Matthias, you are absolutely right. That is why I carry Calris: to kick CON up, patch DISEN vulnerability and feel more comfortable with the nasty uniques. Yet, to sneak throughout the levels to collect some potions. Calris aggravates and lacks two resistances that make me weak even for some lame electric creatures.
Now my tactics is: kill all uniques up to level 95, find all artifacts that should be seen at these levels, then make myself strong enough to dive to dlv 98-99 and see what is happening there...
See this is my first advanced character. I am getting familiar with the abyss. :) That is why I am a slow-diver and a save file abuser once in a while (more a coward than a cheater).
My next character will be a non-cheat gnome priest probably, or maybe I will switch to another variant.

I thought I'd post an update...
Dived to dlv97 and killed a few uniques. Still looking for Qlzqqlzuup (keeps on teleporting away; earlier in the game summoned loads of uniques - now this bustard will be all mine) and Tarrasque (shoots some nasty sh*t making me flee). I still miss rShards. I think of exchanging my cloak to anything of shard protection.
Surprisingly Gothmog was not that difficult... Well... Keep on diving...

Ha! The Tarrasque is down... It was disenchantment that did me harm. I should read log more often.

I wish I had Feanor boots. They are typically on dlv40. I dive deeper. Does it mean I have a better chance to find them somewhere on dlv90's?..

practically yes. Items have are more probable to become artifacts deeper.

But if you're going to begin scumming for those boots, you might be hanging around that depth at 2008 =) I have never found Feanor boots myself. Try that *Acquirement*?

I'd say you're ready for Sauron at least if not for Morg as well.

Naaah.. I don't scum. I only cheated savefiles on shallower levels. :) Now I play responsibly [=slowly] and try to gain monster/artifact know-how for the next no-cheat character I will play later.
I don't want to deal with Sauron before I kill Qlzqqlzuup. That guy summons too much for me. Need to get rid of him (her?, it?).

Don't wait for the Quylthulg. Just kill Sauron. If he is summoned, either teleport or teleport away. He doesn't move, right?

No, he does not. Neither did he summon even once! Haha! A simple line of sight trick... What a dummy!... Dlv97. Down to 99... E-haaa!...

Any tips for Sauron, guys?

Don't bother. Sauron is dead. Costed me 3 !Heal and 1 !Mana. Kept him in corridors, he kept on summoning dogs. :) Well, dragons too...

Ok, but seriously now: any tips for Morgoth? Please.

For a mage with decent healing resources (and you have more than enough of those) Morgy is simple Math. 20k hp devided by 400 damage each mana storm :)

Beside that: Don't let hp fall below 600 or his mana storm might kill you. Keep out of melee range and this one shouldn't be harder than Sauron.

On 1.12.2006 02:04 raq1975 at gmail dot com wrote:
Haha! All right, Mat. I will kindly ask Morggy to stand still, not heal nor summon. It's 50 shots of MS you say, huh? :)

Nope, I meant: what's the tactics not strategy. Not what to do, but how. Yet, since you are saying he is just a tougher Sauron-like, I guess I might have some bad news for him...

I still haven't moved from that dlv99. Down-stairs appeared on Saurons remains. Do I have to use THESE stairs only or can I dive back to any dlv99 some time later and find another way down to Morgoth?

By the way: Mr. Burning Eye dropped some useless (at this time) junk only, no artifacts, not even a potion... Heh... Cheap ass.

Level 99 works as all previous 98 levels after Sauron is beaten.

As for morgy, with a mage (cheater) I've beaten him once. Rather simple. If you want, you can create a sea of runes to an open room, but that's not necessary, an open room works just fine.

When he arrives, mana storm him with every turn you have over 600 hp. If it falls below that, heal by any means available, preferably staff of healing. When mana runs out, use a staff of magi. Once the charges run out, use greater recharging. And there you have unlimited mana. When he gets next to you or if things get tough otherwise, teleport him away. If he summons anything nasty, cast mass banishment.

That's at least how I killed him, didn't even need to cheat by any means in the particular fight.

Ok, so I am on dlv100. Stepped down the stairs. My telepathy spots an unknown creature a few squares away. Look him up. It's Mr. Melkor, Bauglir, Dark Lord, you name it... Yeah, teleported away...
Wish me luck!...

Guys, have a look at my screen dump #2... Heh... I use default settings for monster intelligence. Morggy is just another dumb (though powerful) creature...

That might not be a bad place to fight Morgoth, actually... Nice long corridors mean that he'll waste time in transit only to have you blink away (and blinking can't land you inside the vault), and also mean that his summons can't surround you and pound on you.

When you fight him (which you may be doing right now as I type!), you will probably find that he's just like every other monster - you shoot him with mana storms and heal when you're at low life (here <600 as someone pointed out). That's basically all there is to it. He'll take more mana storms and healing by far than any other monster, but the idea is the same: shoot stuff at him and don't die.

Good luck!

And so it is complete... :)

I am attaching my dump file a few moments after killing Mr. Bad Guy.

He dropped just 4 items worth looking among other junk:
1) Crown of M
2) 'Grond'
3) Trident of Wrath
4) Gloves of Thievery

He costed me 6 !Healing and 1 !Mana, just because I used staffs of magi.

Now I am going to wear his crown, dive more and find all the artifacts I can. Just for fun...

I'd like to thank everyone who helped me or showed the way for my first Angband character, especially Matthias, Paffa and roblt97...

I thought of a gnome priest as a next character, but I like magic so much that I might try a ranger. Don't know yet.

All right... time to let my eyes rest a bit...
