I have never used diving technique before. Still can't resist to completely explore levels with good feeling.

Can't imagine what to do on this depth with such a weak character. I have no diving experience at all.

Hi Yorick. The keys of diving are--

Don't panic-- you have the stealth to get the drop on most monsters at DL37, and you have a nice bow to drop a lot of good value targets. You also have some escapes for panic situations.

Detect like a mad man. You need items, so def. detect treasure a lot. I like to tote -oTreasureDetection, so I don't have to rest as much for MP.

Monsters are both threats and opportunities. Figure out which ones are easy for you to kill and give either good XP or loot. For instance, young green, blue, and black dragons are monsters you should go out of your way to kill. Try to remember the dangerous ones-- at this depth, there are a bunch of monsters which you probably shouldn't bother to engage, and not that many at all that you should give wide berths to.

Don't overstay your welcome. Wandering monsters start awake, so the longer you are in a dungeon, the more "bad" monsters will get on your tail. Find and use stairs a lot. I also find resting to be not without drawbacks for that reason.

Stock up on scrolls. Magic mapping is your friend, and ?oDetect Treasure is nice to. If you go as a dedicated missile character (what I would do, though others would go differently), I'd bring down big stacks of Phase door (I usually go with ~ 20) to save my MP for detects.

Don't be afraid to die. One way to learn about monsters that must be avoided is to die to it, and burn that memory into your play. I've learned about Phoenix, AMHD, plasma hounds, black knights, patriarchs, nightmares, and others that way.

Found good shield and sword. Possibly, I could avoid death if needed supplies were in town (?RCurse, !RestInt, enchanted ammo), but there weren't.

drchung, thanks a lot for your comment!
Your advices seem useful. Some of your hints I already discovered by myself, some going to try with new Elen.

On 19.1.2009 23:03 drchung wrote:
np. Also, one more thing-- it looks to me that you may have exhausted all of your escapes. The best way to conserve them is to try to anticipate what your encounters (which you should be able to do with detect monsters and stealth) before they happen and try to not be in a position that you'll need to use them. One of the corrollaries to that is to guard your hp carefully, esp. if you are doing the missile thing. Basically, I get nervous when I drop even a quarter of my hp, and I start to get really nervous when I drop to half hp. It is of course different with melee a bit, but the theory is similar.

Looks like it was something like dreads that got you this time. Try toting around _oDetectEvil next time you get into the 40's (esp. if you are unlucky enough to not get a source of SI).

Yeah, Dreads are extremely bad news without SI. You absolutely need to detect them with _dEvil or _dInvis. At depth >= 34, I would definitely wear a Ring of SI rather than most anything else. (And keep an eye out for cursed ego bows. Bows of Nazgul are _definitely_ worth enchanting up.)
