Trying a Half-Troll Warrior.

Started with stats of 18/30 STR, 8 INT, 8 WIS, 13 DEX, 18 CON, 3 CHR, and 2300 gold. Sold starting sword and armor. Bought Main Gauche, Long Bow (enchanted to +2), 40 arrows, pile of food and torches, 10 ?Phase Door, 1 ?WoR, 10 ?Identify, 10 ?Object Detection, and a couple of !CSW (no CCW in stock).

Playing big screen for the first time -- *very* scummy. Start each level by detecting objects, collect them, and continue down.

First trip was uneventful. Reached 500' and ran out of object detection, so went home.
Killed Fang and Grip at about 250' without noticing it (thought they were Jackals). Only other unique I've seen is Wormtongue, who stole coins and couldn't be found again.

Found Blessed Rapier (with SI, worth losing a blow), Sling (+9,+13), 2 CHR potions, and a CON potion. The armor wasn't good enough to identify, but at least I'm no longer naked. And that potion of Lose Memories that I just quaffed is neat (it is nice to have a possibly dangerous potion before 2000').

Gear for second trip (aiming at 1000') is 6 CCW, 4 Speed, misc potions, 10 ?PD, 2 ?WoR, 20 ?ID, 11 ?ObjectDetection, Rod of Trap Location, newly-bought Staff of Teleport, and a pile of food, torches, and shots.

Just for the record, this is a plain-vanilla 3.0.9, except that I have moved *ID* to be a level 10 scroll (instead of level 30) and added a 10/1 allocation entry. This should compensate for randarts requiring more experimentation (or *ID*). If I find too many on this trip (before I reach 1000'), I'll take out the 10/1. If I'm still finding too many by about 2000', I'll put it back at level 30.

Level 5 and 5/1 was far too much for my previous try, who died at 550' having found as many *ID* as ID. (That was a *ugly* death -- go downstairs into dark room, take a step, Hummerhorn swoops in, confuses in first round, breeds in second, and so on. I try to fight despite confusion until I see four Is, then try using my 4 (total) CSW and CCW to recover and read ?PD. I never have a chance to read, and ultimately die (despite taking out dozens of them). It was my first trip, so I didn't have any escapes and insufficient healing.)

Second trip was a bit more interesting. Lots of uniques (Grishnakh, Smeagol, Mughash, Lagduf, Golfimbul, Wormtongue, Boldor, Nar, Orfax, Ufthak, Ulfast), three or four Orc pits, and one Fire Hound that burned both my ?WoR and _Teleport at 900', just as I was going to go down. Turned around, climbed to 750', found (and tried) a ?TeleLevel, and then finally found a new ?WoR on 800'. Came home with 1 Waybread (but not hungry).

Lots of inconsequential loot, plus the Phial, a Bow and XBow of extra shots, and a pile of interesting gloves. I'd run out of ?ID, so I knew that I had Gloves of Slaying (+5,+5), an artifact with +3 to DEX and WIS, and an excellent pair. Back in town, a scroll of ID and one of *ID* (found at 600') revealed that both the artifact and the excellent pair had Free Action.

Geared up for my third trip: still using Blessed Rapier (SI), Bow of extra shots, the Phial, artifact gloves with Free Action, and a pile of junk jewelry and armor. Gear is all my !Speed (3 used to date), !Healing, 20 !CCW, 20 ?PD, 50 ?ID, 2 _Teleport, 99 Arrows, and Rods/Staffs of Trap, Door, and Object detection. Still using Food because there were no ?SatisfyHunger in stock. Have Rods of Light for offense.

Weapon is *really* weak, but it is my only source of SI. That, and I haven't found anything high ego weapons of any weight, light weapons of slay whatsit (not orc), and some good light weapons probably not worth the ?ID.

*ID* levels seem okay. I've found 3, had 2 destroyed, and used 1 when I returned to town (on Lador artifact gloves). I'm off my 500'-per-trip pace, although I went through most of 13 levels last trip. Maybe I can do that again and make 1500' on trip 3.

Brief report on third trip: more bad luck with hounds at 900'.

Recalled down, landed in a long horizontal hallway. Fire hounds as far as I can see to the left. Water hounds as far as I can see to the right. Try to use a teleport staff (as I had no teleport scrolls), fail, and get blasted. By the beginning of my next turn, I no longer have either teleport staff and now have orcs as far as I can see down-screen, as a cave orc decided to open the door to their pit...

Phase door couldn't get me out of the area, so I ended up having to fight the two packs of hounds and the orc pit until recall kicked in.

On 8.3.2008 01:17 roustk wrote:
Fourth trip was more interesting. Moved quickly from 900' through 1500' picking off Gorbag, Bolg, Ugluk, Sangahyando, Ulwarth, and Beorn with little trouble. Got an artifact helm with ESP from Gorbag and found a Green DSM on the floor at 1400' -- my first resistance item since finding jewelry shallower than 500'. Lots of Free Action: ring at 900' from an orc herd and boots at 1450'.

After clearing 1500' I examined my supplies and decided that reaching 2000' might be plausible: I still had plenty of food, arrows, perception, and CCW (although I had only 1 !Speed, 1 !Healing, and 6 ?PD). When I activated my rod of Detection on 1550', however, plans changed: a Mazer vault was on the level.

Uniques on the level outside the vault: Bullroarer, Lugdush, Mim.
Uniques inside the vault: Uldor, Vargo, Medusa, Gorlim.
Other big nasties inside the vault: AMHD, Great Hell Wyrm.
With under 400 HP and my only resistance being Poison, things looked bad.

In the end, I cleared almost the entire pit (leaving the AMHD and Golrim alone, teleporting away lots of others) and found:
* artifact Mace (4d4) with acid brand and resist light/dark/blind and SI.
* artifact shield, tulwar, and pike
* chain mail of resistance, crown of night and day, and crown of seeing.
* Short bow of power

Now I'm geared up for my fifth trip, returning to 1550' and hoping to make 2000' this trip. Using Mace (4d4), Short bow of Power, and Green DSM (and hoping to fill base resistance holes with rings/amulets). Carrying 10 Food and 10 Satisfy Hunger, 30 !CCW, all remaining !Speed and !Heal (none of either), 60 ?PD, 20 ?ID, 13 charges of tele other, 21 charges of tele, 28 charge Perception, and 2 full stacks of arrows.

Look for AAR thread regarding the Mazer pit (title about AMHD and Green DSM).

You should use an extra-shots launcher rather than the shortbow. Also, try to carry less stuff so you are not slowed.
You can always return to town to get more ?satisfy or arrows.

On 8.3.2008 07:58 roustk wrote:
Good point on the bow -- I'd done the math only on the bonuses, which gave a slight edge to the short bow (2*24 vs 2*3*7). Including even base damage the extra shots wins out (53 vs 57). Plus, I'm getting deep enough to find occasional good arrows.

As for speed -- I'm 0.1lbs past the -2 threshold, and 30.1lbs past the -1 threshold. Stashing a stack of arrows in a quiet corner takes care of most of the problem. I'll probably drop some phase door and ID as well -- 60 PD seems like overkill, but I left Mim alive because I didn't have enough to blip around. I'll have to reconsider my stack of ID in light of this -- I was debating grabbing more before recalling, but the weight is a bit much. Too bad the Town isn't selling anything of note.

Thanks Eddie

Even with slightly less damage, the flexibility of two shots would make it worth using extra shots. It is easy to think of situations where it takes 4 rounds to kill two creatures with say 70 hp each using shortbow, but 3 rounds are enough with extra shots.
Or killing weak breeders. The decision is not as close as avg dam/round might make you think. Also, you can enchant it.

On 8.3.2008 15:51 roustk wrote:
I could enchant it, if the shop would carry scrolls -- I haven't seen anything other than enchant armor the last two times. (And my only enchantable armor are the gauntlets and boots, both at +4 right now -- moving from 100 to 110 AC isn't that significant.)

I should find a couple of to-Dam scrolls in the dungeon this trip, which will let me finish the bow. Making it +8 brings the bows to parity on dam/round.

The breeder point is excellent -- I'm not finding area-effect wands (even stinking cloud). Plus, Black Oozes (the breeding black j's) are aparently close to depth, as I had to kill dozens of them in the Mazer vault. It would be good to take those out faster.

Have you not even found a shield of Resist Element (like Cold or Electricity?)

Your current shield is doing you essentially no good. With your gear, I'd wear an Amulet of Resist Lighting certainly, and a Shield of Resist Cold, if possible.

I've had just terrible luck with armor (and weapons) -- until that Mazer vault I hadn't found any ego cloaks, shields, or weapons (aside from a Blessed rapier and some minor slays like animal). Even the Green DSM was my first body armor with a resistance (at 1400'). And, I still haven't seen an Amulet of Resist Lightning (and no rings or amulets with resistances since entering Hound depths -- the =ResistFire is from the Black Market after 1550').

I'd go with a Ring of Resist Cold (or Ice or Lightning) in lieu of Damage at this point. (Although the first Ancient White Dragon wasn't too bad -- took one full-power breath but then was able to soften him with arrows. I'm lucky that Blue and White are the small Ancients.)

Proceeded from 1550' with little excitement. Picked off Brodda, Angamaite, Khim, Uldor, Lokkak, and all three Stone Trolls with little difficulty. Only find of note here was a largely standard artifact dagger from Brodda (Anaerost +5+5, Acid Brand).

1800' was a significant improvement: it started with an Orc pit (that dropped a Robe of Elvenkind (RConf) and an Olog pack (that dropped a Shield of Resist Cold -- woohoo). That was followed by taking on a Mirrored Quartet Vault. Lots of new nasties that needed to be teleported away, and a slew of artifacts.

The only unique I killed from the vault was the Queen Ant (the inertia hounds in the area made it interesting). Also killed several Ancient Dragons, a few greater demons (had a demonic Q with hockey stick on me), and plenty of smaller creatures. I just teleported away (or left locked up) these: Lorgan, Castamir, Waldern, Uvatha, a cherub, great crystal drake, dark elven sorcerer, 11-headed hydra, and greater titan.

Finds included disturbing numbers of spell books (Scarabtarices, Raal's, and Mordenkainen's, plus Ethereal Openings), my first ego cloak (Stealth+1), artifact cesti with identify activation, artifact helm (DEX+3,SI), and an artifact executioners sword.

Several rooms were empty, so presumably the Greater Titan and uniques were carrying (or crushing) the non-artifact items.

I was running low on arrows, so I recalled home and sold off the books. Now, returning to 1800' for my sixth trip and hoping to make up some ground -- maybe reach 2500' before recall.

Equipment: Feinya (Light, Dark, Blind), Long Bow XShot, =RFire, =Dam+9, "Infra+3, Phial, Green DSM, Cloak of Stealth, Shield RCold, Narethand (ESP), Brion (ID), Boots of FA.

Backpack: 62 CCW, 60 PD, 10 Magic Mapping, 20 Satisfy Hunger; all my Speed (0), Healing (0), and ?Teleport (4) (and I'm not using any); 28 charge teleOther, 20 charge teleSelf, Elvenkind robe for swap, 99+99+39 standard arrows.

I haven't seen a potion of speed in a long time, and only one potion of healing in the last trip (shattered on floor by Ancient Blue).

Looking at my internal stats, maybe I should go play with some Nexus hounds...

Ready to recall for seventh trip, starting from 2050'. The trip from 1800' to 2050' was uneventful, although I finally lost my last Teleport staff to an Ancient Black Dragon just before running into Lorgan. His first action: summoning Ibun, Mim, Kavlax, Gorlim, and two Ds. Read recall and used ?PD to get out of line of sight.

I finally filled my basic resistance holes, finding an Amulet of Resist Lightning on 1850'.

Recall equipment: 2 !Speed, 2 !Healing, 55 CCW, 40 ?PD, 4 WoR, 5 ?Mapping, 7 ?SatHunger, 12 charge TeleOther, 28 charge Tele, no ?Tele, 84+99 arrows.
