[Clvl21, Anf58, 157491] At the gates of Angband, although no speed records under threat. First tough decision was whether to take the shorter, northern route to Angband, or the longer route via Gondolin. I decided that I preferred to keep the option of killing Mim for the 2nd speciality, rather than Ungo, so I headed South. I suspect that this was a mistake. Next tough decision was deciding which of my three good armors to wear. Decided in favour of Hithlomir for the stealth. Happy with the decision so far, although a confusion attack could easily be waiting around the corner to make me regret it. Just found MB6 and that sweet bow in the last few turns. Time to find some mumaks to raise my Clvl a bit.

I've taken the Gondolin route with both Fayes to make it to Angband. Mim is a welcome diversion to pick up a speciality and that way offers easier looting. Stealth is essential with such a weak character, but the speed on Thalk would probably have swayed me.

Ungoliant has a NICE drop now.

[Clvl33, Dlvl80, 205633] Slow but steady progress - note that Anf 58 has still been very bountiful, despite the changes to item generation. Currently lurking around DLvL80, picking off Chaos hounds using Fireball (combined with Clear Mind), which seems to be the most effrective method of experience gain at the moment. Don't feel anywhere near tough enough to handle the majority of monsters (especially deep uniques), and being buff enough to handle Morgie seems a very long way off. Waiting to see the new spells in the deep spellbooks before worrying too much about finding a strategy for dealing with the the big guy. I think now might be a good time to take out Mim for a second speciality (heighten magic seems to be the most appealing, but comments from more experienced spell casters would be very welcome). I suspect I'll pass on the 3rd speciality in the interests of minimising turncount, but the final descision on this can be made later.
Nick: your comment about Ungo's drop has got me intrigued, but I suspect I'll have to wait for another game to find out what it is, as I'm not keen to waste time with a long wilderness trek.
Psi: I'm still not convinced about choosing to get to Angband via Gondolin as the route to the fastest possible win - is Mim the main factor, or is the North route significantly harder?

Nice going. As for routes, it depends on your priorities - I suspect Si might have factored in the need to visit Amon Rudh and/or Nargothrond at some stage to take out the guardians there...

(plus for a decidedly fragile character, the Gondolin route is a gentler learning curve, not that Si's likely to be bothered about that! I'd recommend that route to a newbie, though, as they'll find the Dorthonion route tough going at first).

I took Heighten Magic with my Faye who got that far. Made a stupid mistake at DL85 (Grand Master Mystic blinked under my popup keyboard on my PDA and I didn't notice while bashing the 'n' key...) and she was dead before I realised what happened. I've won with a mage while alpha/beta testing and that was also taking Clarity and Heighten Magic.

Regarding route, I rather like the Fenns with a mage...

[Dlvl100, Clvl50, 285185] Morgie is down. Resources used: 6 ?MassGenocide and 4 !ResMana, along with regular use of my variety of staves (with some use of the Greater Recharge spell). Healing pots used ... none. It was a long, running battle, with a lot of summoning. Morgie never got to lay a hand on Faye. Main spells used were Cacophony (to stun him, and any non-scary summons), Meteor swarm (best damage), and Thrust Away (to stun him and keep him out of melee range). I sat on a speed rune for the first part of the fight, surrounded by runes of protection, but summon guardians forced me to panic teleport. So no more rune spells after that.

Comments on the mage spell redesign: The attack spells are now more than strong enough to allow a mage to fight entirely with magic, especially in combination with Dimension Door and Clear Mind. Cacophony is possibly too powerful, with high damage, hit everything in sight, combined with its stunning effect which virtually no monsters were able to resist. I was able to advance to level 50 very quickly by "dispelling" demon pits. The rune spells were a bit disappointing. Speed and Protection saw a fair amount of use, but Mana and Power didn't seem to have any noticeable effect. Is this a bug, or have I overlooked something?

A minor bug: the Clvl associated with events recorded in the character dump seems to be somewhat scrambled, something I don't think I've seen before in previous versions.

Overall, I rather enjoyed the new mage class. Faye's low HP count never seemed to be a problem, although I did employ a very timid play-style for most of the game. With hindsight, I think a win in around 200k moves is a good target. Fittingly, given the changes to item curses, the wonderful (+6 to int and con!) randart amulet is actually cursed. I won’t give away what the curse was, but it was a small price to pay for such a nice item.

Congratulations!

I've just found that amulet myself... going to have to look out for reveal and *remove* curses then as it was an instant swap in for me.

Also interesting to see you found Ringil too. That's at least three in this comp. Something is going on with artifact generation methinks.

I hadn't thought of using cacophany on pits (I'm on the border of being able to use it as failure is currently 20% now I have that amulet) - that seems like a good idea to get the XP I now need.

In alpha/beta testing I always used the power runes to launch my offences from - they add a certain percentage to your attack spells.

On 7.9.2009 10:02 Cave Man wrote:
Thanks. Taking out demon pits made levelling up rediculously easy. It is almost risk free, as the stunning effect reduces the offensive response. And the more Balors in the pit, the better (I always t-othered the balrogs).

With regard to the power rune, when I browse my spells when standing on one, there was no indication of any increase in damage.

On 7.9.2009 10:18 Psi wrote:
I put in a feature request for the rune damage to be added in, but it hasn't happened yet.

Just tried the cacophany trick and as you say, it is free XP. Shouldn't take long to level up and then its Morgy time...

Nice win - 280k with a non-thrall is more than respectable, esp. with a full caster...

Heh. Just cleared another U pit which netted both a reveal curses and a *remove curses*. It worked first time, so Ananwen is now cleansed. I should really post up my char rather than commenting here now...

You're ready to go with a turncount of about 51k, I'd imagine... :)

Well done, and thanks for all the comments. I see your point about Cacophony - I might have to tone down the damage a bit. The increase damage from the Power and Elements runes are not shown because ... well, basically I didn't feel like chasing through everything that was needed to show them - the change in damage is calculated at the last minute when the spell is cast. I may fix it up at some point. And I think I need to explain the Mana rune a bit better - it's basically a mana reservoir. You can repeatedly cast it on the same spot and then while you're standing there the mana from the rune will be used before your own. I don't know how useful it actually is.

On 7.9.2009 16:06 Cave Man wrote:
Thanks for the info, esp. the mana rune, which had me completely baffled. Can I suggest that if any of the rune spells fail to live up to expectation, you substitute a "remove all runes" spell. This would increase the utility of the other rune spells a lot.
