Took out the Tengu Swords and Mimic quests as a Water hound. Tengu Swords quest wasn't bad. Mimic quest was was deadly especially without Anti-magic and resistances to Cold/Poison. Although I did have Free Action, I almost got killed with my HP dropping to < 100 even with an AC > 80. After the Mimic quest, I started the Old Man Willow quest as a Water hound. I got my 1st Sabre-tooth tiger during this quest. I was getting chomped away while barely staying alive -- yellow HP -. Fortunately, a Sabre-tooth tiger dropped a corpse for me to possess just in time. I used the Sabre-tooth tiger to finish the Old Man Willow quest, and take out the Orc camp and DQ1. Just before clvl 25, I had to switched to a Hound since the Sabre tooth tiger's EXP was running out. Later at clvl 26, if I remember correctly, I completed the Sewer quest and started the Logrus master quest as a Gravity hound. During the Logrus master quest, I was able to kill the Logrus master quickly and lo and behold, the Logrus master dropped a corpse. I switched from the Gravity hound to the Logrus master, bringing me back in business!!<br /> <br /> My current form needs some work. Although the AC is great, the resistance holes can pose big problems if I run into heavy breathers. I'll probably have to play more conservatively until I get stacked resistances and my damage gets way higher than the 200-300 range.<br /> <br /> Key finds:<br /> 1) a Pair of Metal Shod Boots (Dwarven) [10,+20] (+1) {Clvl 26, Angwil '7'}<br /> 2) a Sacred Pendant [+20] {Ca;HlBs, Clvl 22?, Old Man Willow quest?}<br /> 3) an Iron Helm of the Kobold (+0,+4) [5,+6] (+1) {Clvl 26, Logrus master, Logrus master quest}<br /> 4) a Scimitar of *Slay* Giant (2d5) (+9,+8) (+2)<br /> 5) an Elemental Charm {AcElFiCo, Anti-magic cave?}<br /> 6) The Paper Armour 'Keeper of Light' [4,+12] (+4 to infravision) {WiIf;-Po;Ca}<br /> 7) The Leather Scale Mail 'Shadow' (-1) [11,+17] (+1 to infravision) {StDxIf;Cf[C, Clvl 21, Near swamp north of Outpost, Nami}<br /> 8) a Metal Cap of the Vampire [3,+3] (+2 to stealth)<br /> 9) The Iron Helm 'Holhenneth' [5,+10] (+2) {Clvl 21, Tengu Swords quest}<br /> 10) a Pair of Soft Leather Boots of Stealth [2,+3] (+3 to stealth)<br /> 11) The Long Sword 'Worpal Blade' (5d5) (+32,+32) (+2) {Clvl 25, Dragon's lair 60, ground, the *FAKE* one}</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=16744 Dismas, FAangband L43 Assassin Petty-Dwarf <p>By Roch</p> <p><b>Comment</b>: Had a feeling plasma hounds would do me in.</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=16795 Hugo$oul 2716, PosChengband L13 Monster Possessor <p>By HugoTheGreat2011</p> <p><b>Comment</b>: Short-lived opportunity</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=16752 Truck, Sil L14087407 no-class Edain Hador <p>By debo</p> <p><b>Comment</b>: It was bound to happen!
