Speaking of princess elves, they are really hard to get going...

Burned through countless attempts to get to Amon Rudh, this is the first that has reached. Teleport traps were just lethal...

This character is not doing to badly. Missile damage is around 24/turn, which is not too bad, and have those well balanced spears for some extra oomph.

Level 16, Amon Rudh 17, 1 unique slain

Good work - I'll start another attempt at the weekend (although I'm tempted to try an Adan/Grey Elf Ranger just to make that start a little bit easier).

I didn't enjoy the Light Crossbow route, though - I tried that with one HE Ranger and the miss rate seemed way higher than with a bow* - so I've been waiting around for a Longbow to show up with most chars...

*It was for a short enough time that it could have been RNG cruelty, mind... ;)

To-hit should be much better with a long bow.

Amusing, btw, to see how these early HE rangers have killed The Complainer and nothing else...

Well, Velveeta is not living up to her name; things are not progressing that quickly, at least as quickly as Bear Lee. I decided to make a stab at Mim with just one !oRAL once I got the gloves of dex (had to sell my starting weapon to get it). I got some unfortunate ?oPD results that allowed Mim to heal up, and I just ran out of resources. So, recalled back and am trying to build up my arrow supply. i think I am going to give up on a super-duper-fast victory and just try to get it under 1,000,000 turns.

The bow is definitely better, but arrows deplete really fast. The crossbow is pretty effective, mowed down a bunch of trolls with ease. Damage is fine at these levels; less than melee or magic, but you don't lose hp like in melee or worry about quickly running out of mp for magic. Thus, fights against middling mobs go ok.

Level 23, Amon Rudh 28, 4 uniques slain

Delayed by a PopCap game, of all things. Oh yeah, there is this real life thing, including two major projects at work and the continuing adventures of upchuck girl. So Velveeta has been cooling her heels for the last week.

However, I decided that Mim must die. The second time around was anticlimatic to say the least: ~30 arrows, and Mim did not even cast a spell.

His drop was great. With that Bow, doing ~60 damage a turn with default arrows, which is well more than enough to be competitive for a while.

I think that ranger damage happens to be very drop dependent-- this character is pretty new, and does quite good damage (lucky with gloves of agility in BM, excep bow from Mim).

Velveeta is now locked and loaded. Onto to Nargothrond.

Level 25, Amon Rudh 30, 7 uniques slain
