Lucky find was an early wilderness vault in SV30 guarded only by a bandit, an illusionist and a grey icky thing. That yielded the gloves of power and the randart armour with rBase + rBlind. The bow, lamp and (maybe) weapon were also from wilderness vaults.

How strange, my eq wasn't shown in the first dump! Here we go again...

One-Eyed Bob was minding his own business on Brethil 26, picking up the loot from a wilderness vault, when he was jumped by a Gaveronian Beserker. He did the decent thing and put the poor chap out of his misery and what did he drop you ask... BoS(+8)!!! I have never had a drop like that at this level before.

So Bob then WoR'd and dived straight from AR19 to AR30 in about 3 minutes (also discovered that if you go up and down the same staircase you can dive to the bottom of anywhere by taking advantage of when the stairs continue - decided not to exploit it further after the first couple of levels though). This was the first time I have been faster than Mim which made it an easy enough fight though it took a lot longer than I expected as he kept pulling off his healing trick and my arrows kept missing at inopportune moments (man did I get through some arrows!). I think I now want piercing shot and then marksmanship though I need a quick source dive to see how effective they are...

They're supposed to have good drops, so I guess that qualifies...

Have you thought about Rapid Fire?

Took piercing shot after Mim. I haven't seen the low down on rapid fire to know how many extra shots I get compared to how inaccurate they become!

Spent very little time in the dungeons so far - only the brief dive for Mim and a little exploration when setting up the Nargothrond recall point. I've just beem kitting up from wilderness vaults up until now...

Found an acid brand which despite having one less blow should do more damage against more monsters... I hope.

I cannot believe this guy's luck at the moment! Shortly after the dump I got a Moria level and one of my first kills dropped Narsil! From being a ranger played as a rogue, he has suddenly become a warrior who can shoot a bit!

The worst thing that befell him was a nexus hound scrambling dex and int - my best and worst stats, but then the RNG kindly provided 2!oDex on the same level which means Bob recovered 3 of the 4 points of Dex he lost.

With this luck, I'm tempted to read my ?oAcquirement now - I had been saving it until I'd dived a little deeper!

It's only the RNG trying to lure you into doing something stupid ... but maybe you should really read the scroll now: If you get a shovel +1/+1, you know everything is ok. If you get something 20 level out of depth, you know you're in DEEP TROUBLE ;-)
Btw., why do you use the "Longbow of Extra Shots", not the "of Might" .. with a loss rate of 25% for arrows, I would rather make sure every one counts ?!

On 2.4.2007 10:24 si_griffin@yahoo.com wrote:
Is it only 25%... sure feels like a lot more than that!

This is my first ranger so I'm learning it as I go along. It was a bit of a toss up between the two bows but the extra shots does more damage per round, is more likely to hit and if I miss with an arrow I don't lose so much as I would with might. However you are certainly right about arrow usage - I came across the 'h' keep vault and clearing all the 'h's coming up the central causeway almost used my entire quiver! I may well switch back to the other bow (which is why I didn't sell it when I found this one).

I'll pick up my ?oAcq on my next recall and see what happens then...

Read the scroll... Lance of the Noldor. I can live with that. I should be safe from the RNG's wrath for a little while longer.

Found another ?oAcq in a DCV - this time I got Hithlomir... which makes me a bit nervous again. I also have Cammithrim at home to complete the set but not sure if that will be better than my gloves of power.

One side of the DCV is already full of fireflies, so I doubt I will be able to clear much more which is a shame.

Stuck out the vault as long as I could and just as well I did. Grabbed a randart glaive (no idea what it does yet but I doubt it beats Narsil...), a couple of rods of recall, some stat potions and a nice new bow!

I guess you've tried Cammithrim and decided the bonuses aren't worth it. Might be handy later if you change your hat.

How's Piercing Shot working out?

I haven't got as far as trying the set yet - that's next on my list before I recall. If it costs me a blow though I certainly won't do it. Also unless a helm of telepathy comes along, then I think my upgrade path will always have rBlind already.

Piercing shot was useful in Plainsman camps when they all rushed you at once, however since I've hit the dungeon with Narsil I've only used my bow on things I don't want to melee - the only exception was the keep I mentioned earlier. Trap setting is still very useful though - I took out all the hounds in a Dogs of War vault using a zig-zag corridor and a couple of traps.

Just read a ?oRecharging and it blew up all 5 of my -oStM! Is that just very unlucky (as well as annoying)? Had to use Narsil to tunnel the walls in the vault I was in at the time (you can't blunt weapons that way can you?!).

Meant to say that when wielding the Shadow Ward set I lost too much melee ability to make it viable at this time.

Just fell through a trap door mid-fight (I think the master-thief had created it) and found myself on a superb level with yet another DCV... just started clearing it and have already found Mablung!

The bad guys really do not like Narsil. I have never known uniques die so fast.

This is my first proper attempt at a melee-ish character and I can really see what I have been missing - even if I do miss my spells too. Still not sure what I'll do about Hounds of Tindalos if I get that far - what sort of strategy do others you on those abominations?

Obviously I meant 'use' rather than 'you' (oops) and I should have said non-strong spellcasters too.

I use the *destruction* genocide run-away strategy against the Hounds of Tindalos. :) I killed one once and it was then I realized that one was enough. I'm sure you'll think of something clever to bring 'em down however. I liked Narsil too when Armsman found it. Good wig-tearing potential plus nice benefits. Happy hunting!

Psi used WoD and Psiren tended to genocide them - though looking back in my monster history, I've apparently killed 36 of them which was a surprise! Looks like I ought to set up some more town recall points and get the merchants stocking up on scrolls...

Got a superb feeling a few levels down and despite there not being a single vault (just a few interesting rooms) it was a real treasure trove for Bob. Lying on the floor he found the last 'thanc, a randart crossbow (I so thought it was Cubragol when it wouldn't destroy!) and Tulkas and then in a series of themed rooms, a couple of Basilisks dropped Mormegil and Colannon!

I then decided to establish a shopping recall point. I met Pongo on the way, who kindly dropped a scroll of phase door...

Then on recalling back to the dungeon I got a Mirrormere vault which furnished me with Nevrast - rConf finally! I now only have holes in rNether, rShards and rDisenchant - the first one being the biggy.

Pongo's a giver all right - I typically get rations from him.

Just had a very strange level. It was split in two pieces with no corridors connecting the two halves! (I have sense surroundings so I can say that for sure). In the middle was the keep vault which was only connected to one half - which I'm guessing is the culprit here.

Decided to just dive for Glaurung and he went down without so much as a whimper. It seemed like fast attacking might have been the way to go, but I am more interested in trying high-level archery so took marksmanship instead.

That split in half thing really shouldn't happen - although I suspect you're right, and it's the keep vault that's the problem. And I guess a character that's finding greater vaults can deal with it, so it is probably not urgent to fix.

And to answer another question elsewhere, there is a troll wilderness vault but it only occurs in mountains.

Making steady progress in T-I-G just stopping to clear interesting looking areas.

Lack of rNether still bothers me - particularly here of all places. Had one close call with Dwar who cast some sort of Nether storm on me which took me <100HP, but nothing else to report. So far the midgame has possibly been easier with Bob than with Psiren, though I am probably playing a lot more carefully with this char as he can't just wipe out entire armies with just a few fell spells!

I've finally found some seeker arrows which makes archery a lot more dangerous, however Narsil still remains my primary source of attack.

Finally found a ring of rNether (only to get touched by a Nether Wraith...). Also found a beaked axe of the Noldor, something like 2d11 (+11, +18) (+2) - which I was close to swapping in for Narsil, but Narsil's brand and slays combo still makes it more effective against most monsters.

Was pleased to dispatch Carcharoth at my level, but ran out of healing on the subsequent battle with Errata so have had to skip that one for later (she kept on forcing me into the wall for a lot of HP!).

Branded seeker arrows are verrrrry nice (I get four per round with Celegorm).

Will try and update the dump again soon. Now at CL44 and in yet another DCV! The other kit change has been Ingwe for my "oWIS.

Unfortunately my next update will be the death dump.

This was not so much a YASD as an Oh-Yeah-I-Forgot-About-That-Death. I'd swapped out my rPois ring for rNether thinking that I could use my spell of rPois instead where necessary, however on the Elementals themed level, I completely forgot whilst meleeing dragons and an AMHD breathed poison which killed me instantly.

It was a sad end to a promising char who on the previous level had just cleared the loot from a bubble vault - providing a nice couple of kit upgrades.
