I was all ready for an early Cloning Pits with a surprisingly stealthy bard, when I got waylaid by a pit of Ancient Ice Wyrms. I wasn't sure I could handle more than one of them, as I was in my "One and Done" kit rather than my melee kit, but I discovered that with Doomcall I could just barely kill them one at a time. Eventually, I procured Runespear and the Harness of the Hell, and that made them quite tame. Plus the topography was such that I could lead them out one at a time. Still, it took almost 3 hours to kill them all. I would have expected better equipment from the haul, but all I managed in my current kit is Laputa and this dragon shield. But, nearly 2,000,000xp is always nice, and the ordeal took me from CL36 all the way to CL41.

The Cloning Pits was a snap given my stealth. I picked up Aglarang to boot. I'm not sure there is a better weapon for a bard than this little guy. I only wish I had more hitpoints ...

Me too! Bards start with a -5 stealth penalty! Good thing I am getting +17 stealth from my equipment (I'm tempted to add the Pitch Dark Night amulet just for another +4). High Elves have +4 stealth, and Lucky gives +2. Net score: Stealth of 18.

Mycen proved very tough, but worth the effort, giving me a much desired Necklace of the Dwarves. Narse was also tough as he was not stunned by Doomcall for some reason, and dropped nothing of worth ... aside from dropping me down to 120hp. He probably would have killed me next turn (I burned thru all 4 of my !Healing on him, so I felt invested in killing him ... Stupid!)

After that, I decided to rely more on my stealth. I finally picked up that last book too ... Though it still seems that Doomcall is my best and most effective bet ... when it works. Endurance is nice, and helped against Lems even though he immediately broke my first glyph and pounded off 30% of my hp. I teleported him away, and when I found him a second time, the glyph held for the entire battle. There's another guy that did not get 'Dazed' by Doomcall ... I don't think he resists sound, so something else must be up with that (OK, a quick peek shows he has the NO_STUN flag, and so does Narse).

Another spell I like is Relief of Yavanna which heals 15d10 every turn. Given my low hp, its usually only 3 turns of singing that song to restore my hp. So, I lead with Doomcall and switch over to Yavanna when damaged. Its working OK. I don't really get Hero's Poem ... Its very pricey, and does stuff I can do anyway like haste and heroism. The per round damage just doesn't compete with Doomcall IMHO.

What I'm really excited about is Wizardry of Sauron. 95d10 is impressive damage output, but I wonder if I'll be able to really kill anything with it. I've become accustomed to classes that have some means of getting spell points back, even if it is just a ForceTrainer's piddly Clear Mind ability. But with no regen, I probably can't kill anything with more than say 4000hp with that spell. Maybe later when I don't mind burning !RestoreMana, but by that point, everything will probably resist sound anyway.

So my take on the Bard is as follows:
[1] Doomcall totally rocks. It doesn't always work, but when it does, it is by far your best bet. I've been taking out Elder Vampires without Hold Life and they never hit me, despite my less than astounding AC.
[2] Endurance is useful as well. It is pricey, so be sure to train your skill. Also, cast it before the battle as part of your setup, so you can then just rest to recover mana.
[3] Relief of Yavanna is also good. Probably a good choice for sound resisters, like great wyrms of law. I'll try it out shortly.
[4] Things like Finrod's resistance, Hobbit Melodies, Hero's Poem are probably not that useful. I occasionally use the resistance when fighting weak breathers, like Ancient Ice Dragons. Its better than quaffing a potion, or risking something blowing up. And they die quickly enough in straight melee.
[5] Fingolfin's Challenge might make the Destroyer easy! We'll see ...

After getting the Wizardry of Sauron, and seeing how it could be better than a mana storm (at least in certain situations), I thought I owed it to myself to at least make an attempt to pick up the Eat Magic mutation. Without it, I can only use the spell sparingly due to its high cost (7 casts runs thru all my sp at the moment).

So, off to the Vapor Quest I went. What a lame experience! First mutation was the silly squeak (-4 Chr ... Ha! Funny bard voice makes monsters laugh :) and within 5 mutations I was staring at a whopping -9 Chr adjustment. Mutations and Bards just don't mix. I was surprised how many biff charisma. But, I figured I would just wait for Eat Magic to show up, and maybe luck out with the mutation removal once it did. But it *never* showed up. I was at 83 mutations at one point (and recovering, so I was losing them to). And, if you factor how often I toggled between Puny and He-man, between Stiff Joints and Nimble, I reckon I burned 110 mutations ... but _still_ _never_ _picked_ _it_ _up_! Sigh, I got bored, as this whole ordeal took like an hour and a half, so I waited until I was He-man and nimble again, and then headed off to Zul (Good thing I brought my 2,000,000gp!)

Of course, I was vulnerable to the elements, and while I convinced myself to play with some bad mutations, there is no way I was going to play with that. Not with under 700hp. A single resisted breath from a Hell Wyrm would kill me ... No way. So, vulnerability was the 79th mutation to be removed. I did manage to keep some tentacles, though :)

I only post now because of my devilish hit points ... Being chaotic as well, perhaps I have gone over to the dark side of the song?

Boy, in the last 7 hours or so, I haven't managed to find anything to significantly change my equipment setup. I got Runespear from an Ice Pit about 7 hours into the game, Aglarang in the cloning pits about 9 hours into the game, Dwarves from Mycen about 10 hours in. I guess Zarcuthra is nice, and I might wield it eventually (It even as a charisma boost). A couple hours ago I picked up a Ring of Extra Attacks (+2), and the weaponsmith says I am better off with Runespear than with Aglarang. I tend to agree, at least until I leave the Dragon's Lair and start running into foes with better resistance coverage.

So I wait down here at the bottom of the lair. I dove down here after the cloning pits, so its been over 6 hours of play. At first, I was out of my league, but now I am holding my own. Tiamat still lives, and my hitpoints are still to low to take her out safely (or with less than 5 !Healing). I'll probably just wait for Fingolfin's Challenge at this point.

I just offed Gandalf, who was angry with me for some reason, and tried to kill me. I was really hoping for one of his items ... Bards can benefit from economical mana, and it would bump my cost on the Wizardry of Sauron from 54 down to 40, which is significant.

Still, Doomcall rules the day, being cheap and useful. When it doesn't work, sometimes that is due to resist stun rather than resist sound, and then I fall back to the Wizardry of Sauron. And then there is melee. I'm not great at it, but not bad. It is scary to take on Great Wyrms of Balance, Law and even Chaos with my low hitpoints. 2 breaths and I die, even when the monsters are halfway dead, and even though I have all resistances.

Hmmm ... a ring of con (+5) is worth 156hp (713 -> 869) and would move me out of double breath insta-death range, I think. Maybe that would be more prudent?

Tiamat was a pushover ... she can be stunned! I'm not sure what I was waiting for? At any rate, I switched away from melee once I swapped in my Con (+5) ring. With the wizardstaff, I can be effective with the Wizardry of Sauron, dishing out something like 6,000 damage in a single run thru my mana (11 casts at 40 each). With the Charmed Pendant as a swap, I could take out the likes of Wahha-man and Rhan-Tegoth. Atlach-Nacha, that big slow spider, did not require restore mana. Just back off out of his reduced detection range and rest. And with regeneration, I could even just teleport away from some uniques and rest up ... I killed Tiamat this way, at the cost of 2 !Resistance rather than just 1.

Tiamat dropped Thorin, which offers nothing other than +4 Str and Con for me. Since it also left me without poison resistance, I swapped in Frakir: a net wash as far as con and resistances go. But hey, I like Thorin. And I did bump my stealth up to Legendary [7] from [5]. Every little bit of stealth counts!

I've been researching monsters to see who lacks sound resistance, and who doesn't. Surprisingly many uniques don't resist sound, including the Serpent, Morgoth, Nodens and the Destroyer. In fact, so far I only know of Bahamut and the Unicorn ... They should prove troublesome if I choose to fight them, which I won't ;)

I'm getting a sense of my end game strategy. Melee is over rated, I think. And dishing out 500-600hp damage from a distance (100d10) should do just fine :)

I'm sticking with the pure spellcaster role until the end! Of course, when I drew Combat-Echizen for my DL76 quest, there was nothing I could do. He's one of the handful of high level uniques that resists sound (Combat, Kronos, Bahamut, Unicorn of Order, Plain Gold Ring). Of course, sound resistance is a perfect way to shutdown a cocky bard that refuses to melee!

I ran into a GCV recently. It had the Unicorn, Sauron, Azathoth, The Plain Gold Ring (!) and plenty of others inside. I just sang my wrecking song once I cleared as much of the vault as I could safely hope to ... I did get Brand and my second Lordly Protection in the process, but not much else. It was a lesser variety, with excellent objects every other square.

The other bad thing to occur was Fiona. Now not her, per se. But her blood curse. And not her blood curse, really, but the fact the blood curse entombed herself. And even that is not too bad, except that she is a wanted monster. So no corpse whatsoever gets generated when this happens! So, no artifact wizardstaff for me ... Now I really want Gandalf ;)

Mmmm ... that's better. I finally picked up some decent Dragon Armor. The gloves are currently being used for Poison and Shards, but the Acid, Nether, Chaos and Disenchantment might give me some flexibility down the road. But there goes my stealth. Alas, the Bard now awakens the denizens of evil! Hopefully, I'm powerful enough to not mind. That pesky Combat-Echizen keeps showing up, and I really need to do something about it. I'm just not sure what?

I'll take the max strength and constitution ... a lucky bard has a huge stat deficit to climb for all stats save charisma. I'd prefer Thorin to Grayswandir, but that extra 1.5lbs costs 17sp, and the only benefit is some AC and the ability to slaughter monsters with my wizardstaff! Nah, this will do for now.

I found a +5 cloak of the bat in the black market, of all places. I've been identifying cloaks all game so I'm surprised to finally be able to purchase one of these. So, here is yet another massive equipment shuffle. I gain +5 speed and +10 stealth. I'm lighter, and can even melee. Maybe I can kill Kronos with my wizardstaff? I see no other way ;) The loss is in hp, but only 80 or so. I'll take the speed and stealth for the time being.

I continue to whittle away uniques when I can, and gather resources while I wait. The Destroyer has not been showing up, so I hesitate to walk around with a bunch of !RestoreMana that will be necessary to kill him. And the more staves of healing I can find in the mean time, the better.

My first attempt at Raphael was a failure ... He summoned a GWoP on his first move! But my second go revealed him to be quite tame, and he never even hurt me, being stunned the whole time I pelted him with 100d10 sound balls.

I have only seen Nodens once, and I'm pretty sure he can be dazed as well. But on that level I quaffed a !Polymorph and picked up the Albino mutation. With hp in the 700's, I did not want to risk it! Plus, I'm not carrying any *Healing*.

The only unique that I can't handle that is bothering me is Kronos, since the Serpent won't summon the Unicorn or Combat or Bahamut, and the Plain Gold Ring is easily avoidable. I'd hate to have to build a melee kit ... If I swap in Zarcuthra, 4 attacks nets me damage output of 206 per round, not counting slays, and not counting misses. Maybe Endurance and Staves of Mana Storm would be the way to go? I need to find some first (at least 6 as he has 11000hp). That sucker is not even handled by wands of rockets!

[CL50:DL99] 24:15:31
There's not much left now ... Maybe 10 or so uniques I'd like to kill just to mop things up better. I think I'll leave Kronos alone, but if I wanted to, then I think the Falcon Sword of Destruction might be a good bet. I think he can be confused, but I might be wrong on that.

Sauron was a pushover (I used his own Wizardry against him!), and dropped the plain gold ring which I promptly destroyed since I was really really tempted to use it. +5 stats and elemental immunity was tempting me, and I think my saving throw is high enough to resist the statue effect. Plus, the game is almost over, and I would only have used it for the final battle. Well, no chance to change my mind now :)

Oberon was also wimpy. He had me down to 450hp before I cast my last sound ball to finish him off, and I really should have healed first (I didn't use any healing in the battle ... but you lose all bragging rights if you die). I forgot about the blood curse and it was a bad one bringing forth the Unicorn of Order. Ouch! But I just teleported after the Unicorn bumped into an intervening Solar for a couple rounds of melee (That probably would have killed me!). Then, destruction.

And Oberon had a better ring that Sauron ... at least for me. I'm back to Dwarves as well, and am strong enough to kill the remaining uniques without restore mana. That leaves 46 potions to use on the Serpent. Watch Out!

For reference, the Destroyer has as many hit points and he only took 6 potions, so I think I have my resources covered.

I talk the talk, but I don't walk the walk. Shortly after my last post, I just grabbed all my resources and went for the Serpent. This left all the Dungeon Masters as well as Azathoth and a few other nasties to come and join the fun. And they all did. But still, the Serpent was no match for me! It was a standard distance kill, using stone to mud (and that wallbreak song) to open up long narrow line of sight, letting the Serpent crash thru one last distant wall to spend energy while I rested up my Wizardry of Sauron. Pelt one, two, three ... as often as I could until his summons became overly nasty. Often, it was dispelling my resistance and then summoning ancient dragons. More often, it was summoning Morgoth, or Great Cthulhu. Or just plain old cyberdemons. But still, at 100d10 a pop, he didn't last long enough to seriously threaten me. And regarding !RestoreMana, I used 7, but a few times I quaffed when I was only half way thru my mana and waiting for the Serpent to crash thru that last wall to gain line of sight. When in view of that beast, time is much better spent casting my sound ball then quaffing a silly potion ...

His drop was interesting. Hey, there's Incanus at last :) And this is my first Bard win ever ... I'm not sure why I waited so long. While not as powerful as, say, Larry Logrus was, this guy was quite formidable. And the Wizardry of Sauron, while not as consistent in damage output as the Mana Storm (100d10 vs 500), is more useful, in my opinion. Many uniques just became dazed by it, which severely biffed them! Notables include Sauron and Oberon, but many others, including some of the late game space gods like Yog-Sothoth and Nyarlathotep.

I'd say the Bard is more deadly than any mage can be, and melees slightly better than a tourist (both have 4 attacks), though melee can be used as a nice complement to Doomcall (While a mage that tries to melee ... and I've done plenty of that to know ... is just a glutton for playing seriously gimped characters :) They have useful healing (not as good as a priest), great detection, and many useful spells both offensive (Wizardry of Sauron) and defensive (Endurance). Really, I think what put me off for so long was the single tasking nature of this class. They have spells for haste (Hobbit Melodies), for resistance (Finrod's Resistance), for healing (Relief of Yavanna) but they can only do one thing at a time, so choice is key. I probably only relied on a handful of spells the entire game, leaving hasting to my plentiful staves of speed, and resistance to my stash of potions (and rings earlier on). Really, some of the early spells can only be used for a few levels before being discarded never to be cast again (Blessing Chant and then Heroic Ballad? Would I really use either when I have Doomcall?!). So lots of useless spells, in my opinion. But quite a few good ones. And that Wizardry of Sauron is just awe inspiring :) Doomcall seems just as awe inspiring for most of the game as a complement to melee, but I don't think melee is a strong option for this class. It can be done (and has been done!), but I think the distance kill with the Wizardry of Sauron is down right easy by comparison.

Just came across this dump recently. Interesting. I've only tried playing a Bard as a real caster a couple times, both pretty half-heartedly, and neither worked out very well. Interesting that you had such good luck with it. The Serpent really doesn't have rSound? I was sure it did...

Maybe in Entroband, but not in Hengband. The only really annoying resistance the Serpent has is Chaos (which makes sense) since that shuts down the Breathe Logrus spell that Chaos High Mages would just love to use.

You should definitely try the Wizardry of Sauron approach (If you ever find that book, and you'll definitely want a wizardstaff too) ... The main benefit from the distance spell caster is that monsters will generally waste turns moving towards you. In Hengband, it also does way more damage then you could ever hope to in melee (maybe a tad less then your Death Scythe bard though, but safer).
