First attempt at V since 2.9.2. Hounds are getting annoying and I am yet to find PB1. However the sling has been great! Not sure whether I should be lugging around all the ammo and would really appreciate FA and SI some time soon... oh and a means of detecting the bad guys etc etc

Some questions...

- Should I be lugging around all types of ammo in the chance that a better launcher of another type shows up?

- Are the jewelry with little speed boosts worth it? I've been carrying around 2 =Teleportation for goodness knows how long and never actually used them.

- Hounds... In FAangband, if you hurt one it will come after you rather than staying out of FoV. However in V it appears that if I hit them with splash damage from a -StinkingCloud they still wait for me to enter the room. Is there an effective way to lure them out? I post this whilst stood outside my first room of firehounds!

- Is there any heavy curse stuff to be wary of other than Morgul weapons - any jewelry before Woe/Doom for example. I'm relying on RemoveCurse at the moment as id seems very scarce.

- I guess I should stop quaff/read testing potions/scrolls soon...?

- Please tell me there is still a good chance of PB1 showing up...

Re Hounds: the easiest way to lure hounds out is to get into an adjacent room. Hopefully you can kill a fire hound in one blow, or one blow and one hit with the sling. They'll enter a room from a hallway, they just won't enter a hallway from a room. So if they are in a room and there's another room close by, go to the other room and move to the side so you can 'knight's move' them as they come into the room. If the corridors are not twisty enough and too long they may not follow you though.

Woe rings and DOOM jewelry don't exist anymore. So I think you should be fine with testing jewelry. The best way to tell weapons without ID that I've found is to throw them at weak monsters.

curse weapon and curse armor are native to dlevel 40, so it would be pretty awful luck if you were to find one in the 20s.

As for the inventory. You're probably a much better player than me, so my advice would be pointless.

On 5.10.2009 16:43 Psi wrote:
Thanks for the advice fizzix.

I usually play O-based variants and throwing (non-throwing) weapons tends to cause them to vanish/break, so that is useful to know.

One of my earlier comp attempts found ?curse weapon at about DL15, so I was getting a bit nervous about them - glad to hear that that was an exception!

Finally PB1 and then a superb level with two lesser vaults provided some useful gear!

Nice start, and welcome to the competition! The teleportation rings are totally worth it, until you hit an inventory crisis. You don't use them *often*, but when they save you from death, you're sure grateful. I particularly like rings of Escaping - they let you run away from normal speed uniques for a while so you can take the rings off and pelt them with missile weapons.

Sadly, your advice is too late and I have already dropped the =Teleportations. Anyway you can't miss what you don't really know.

Lost both _Id to water hounds and a copy each of PB1 and PB2 to a fire vortex. Very frustrating.

I was regretting the decision to drop my sling(x3) and ammo (on finding a decent crossbow) when I was down to my last 3 bolts but thankfully I was still carrying some arrows when a magical longbow showed up. That is keeping me going for now.

I really need to up my melee damage output and find some more bolts. Play is slow. That frustrates me and is likely to get me killed.

Btw can non-consumables in your pack be destroyed by elemental attacks? I'd hate to lose my ESP weapon when fighting with my frostbrand.

"Btw can non-consumables in your pack be destroyed by elemental attacks? I'd hate to lose my ESP weapon when fighting with my frostbrand."

No, I believe this was changed in order to make weapon-swap more reasonable. I think that weapons in the pack can be damaged by elemental attacks in the same way weapons and armor you are wearing are. Although, I've actually never had this happen to me, so I might be making that up.
