At last, I think this guy has a fighting chance ... there's a dragon pit on the level, and Gurthang is just itching for a workout!

Good loot from the dragon pit - Holhenneth, Caspanion and the Shield of Preservation (which I really wish I could use right now). Left behind two junk randart armors, and Mormegil. Lvl 37 has been kind enough to provide another dragon pit: yummy.

Lvl 37 was an epic level. A dragon pit yielded Rohirrim, Gwendohil (discarded), an upgrade to my (currently unusable) shield of preservation, and, best of all, a +2 AoTrickery. Then I killed Mim, and got Thranduil. Finally, a small vault yielded Avivir (also abandoned). Facing serious backpack pressure, decided to discard Arvedui, Caspanion and the crown of serenity. Holhenneth was retained for its activation.

You're doing very well! You must do a ton of damage with Crisdurian.

On 4.8.2009 09:30 Cave Man wrote:
Crisdurian is great, but not being able to wear a shield is a huge disadvantage. I would favour an FA - style "wear your shield on your back" approach. The game is exceptionally difficult as it is: low HP, low speed combined with the low damage output of 1H weapons (and scarse healing and speed resources) means running away from many in depth monsters most of the time. This makes it very hard to advance a character from Dlvl 35 onwards in an iron man game. That said, I suppose a Half-Orc should expect to face a very tough existance!

Lvl 49 provides a special feeling. But the first order of business is the GMT, who comes straight to meet me at the stairs. A tough fight, but I prevail, with most of the damage done with the bow. His drop was disappointing: Carlammas looks tempting, as I deperately need con, but the AoTrickery is too helpful at the moment. The BoC (HA) looks great, but a TH weapon is simply not an option for the big boss with my current outfit - it looks almost certain that I'll have to take him on using the trident and shield. Of course, there's still the rest of level 49 to clear, which could change things. I suspect it will need to, as I fancy I'll get my arse kicked with my current kit and resourses. There's still room for optimism, as a dragon pit (how I love Gurthang!) and two small vaults await my attention!

On 4.8.2009 13:20 Cave Man wrote:
Lvl 49 is cleared, and I stand with the kit that will get used for the final battle. Elessar (the source of the special lvl feeling) has been selected over Carlammas and trickery. The heal activation could make a big difference in the final fight. Dal-i-thalion was a nice find, courtesy of the dragon pit, but (I could be wrong) I feel I still need to wield the shield against Angmar, so the weapon has to be the trident. However, I'm hoping to get good mileage out of the Slay Undead arrows (also from the dragon pit), before switching to melee. Once the arrows are done, I plan to swop in Umbar (for con +RBlind) and Milor (for the agility boost). Sadly waved goodbye to Gurthang and the HA BOC.

I think that limited healing resources may be my undoing, but there's not much that can be done about that now.

Job done. Used 3 potions of speed, 2 Beserk, 5 CSW, 9 CCW, 5 Heal and 5 *Heal. Angmar's brain-smash attack was particularly brutal, leaving me at only +15 speed for virtually the entire fight. The arrows of slay undead were the key. If I'd relied on melee alone, I would definately have failed. Once I had weakened him with the arrows, his teleport-away spell was his undoing, alowing me to rebuff and use CSW and CCW to heal-up. When one of his teleports sent me back to near the starting position of the fight, I was able to regather the arrows and finish him off. Using melee, I simply couldn't do enough damage to kill him before he used his tele-away spell.

Fun game. Very tough, but perhaps that's the way ironman is meant to be (especially for a dumb orc). However, I do get the impression that single-handed melee is too underpowered, especially relative to archery. The 2-handed weapons feel about right power-wise, so I stand by my suggestion above for a "shield-on-the-back" approach.

Mostly, however, I think Antoine deserves congrats for creating a very interesting variant full of novelty and challenge.

Interesting comment that the WKoA would have been too hard to handle in melee. If you had a late savegame I'd have asked you to try it and see what happened...
