I started the fight standing on a rune and wiped half his health while he was summoning some harmless things. The rune finally broke and the fight resumed more normally with severe bashing and heavy summoning (dragons were his favorite at this point).<br /> <br /> Note that was a close call. Used up all my *heal*s because he decided to go on a manastorm rampage at one point, and I ended the fight with regular heals (had one !life in reserve just in case, but I really didn't want to restore the 100k xp that was drained at this point). I risked a last blow after a final rubble bashing while standing on less than 100 hps... and it worked.<br /> <br /> In the end this was a very frustrating character. I really prefer killing things for loot... but the challenge of killing Morgoth at level 36 was really fun.</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=16881 Horrifying Fate, PosChengband L26 Time-Lord Tonberry <p>By Nivim</p> <p><b>Comment</b>: I walked on a pilgrimage to villages and dungeons, reaching all the former but Zul, which I got near (visiting arena briefly) then realized I didn't actually have levitation, have only seen it in a shop instead of bought it for some unreason. This is troublesome because I picked up hallucinatory insanity from who knows what (Horrifying Fate has seen too many horrors with Foretell to know which) and it can make judging monsters difficult.<br /> I did a few quests, specifically...<br /> Wait.<br /> Actually;<br /> BEEEEES<br /> The Set of Gauntlets of the Bee Master [2,+4] (+2) {StIn;PoNt;Fa Paurnen}<br /> <br /> <br /> (I think I picked it up in the Mimic quest.)</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=16843 Bilbo, Angband L38 Warrior Hobbit <p>By ShadowTechnology</p> <p><b>Comment</b>: Veni, vidi, vici! Bilbo has defeated the Dark Lord of Angband. It was a long hard fight, starting with a blast of mana from the One Ring. I used up nearly all of my consumables, including all my heals and *heals*, most of my !CCW, and one of two rods of healing (they take forever to recharge). I finally had to dip into my stash of Life potions - but forgot about the unintended "benefits" of Life. I had started the battle with current XP far below max XP hoping to win at character level 37. But !Life restores all lost XP and brought me up to CL37. The win took me to CL38. Still good enough to be in the top position (for now) but not what I was aiming for. M kept summoning uniques, including lots of high level ones, and I had to *destruct* them away. Not much structure left to the level by the end. Went through all 30 ?Phase Door. By the time I got him down to one star we were just standing there exchanging punches, completely surrounded by summoned critters.</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=16886 Faye Seron, Angband L29 Ranger Half-Elf <p>By eliana</p> <p><b>Comment</b>: Another ranger.

Tried to take down a Lesser Balrog, which didn't happen because the total lack of Fire resistance was my undoing.</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=16884 Fie Elwen, Angband L28 Ranger Half-Elf <p>By eliana</p> <p><b>Comment</b>: This character was doing quite well, with a nice short sword.<br /> <br /> But I underestimated the power of dreads and when I tried to escape, Clear Hounds finished me off.</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=16883 Blibo, Angband L34 Warrior Hobbit <p>By Thraalbeast</p> <p><b>Comment</b>: First attempt was a winner but the next four died. One healing would have saved me but I took the chance. I clearly save my healing pots more than I should.</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=16848 Killbo, Angband L36 Warrior Hobbit <p>By murphy</p> <p><b>Comment</b>: carcharoth got me with nether breath right simultaneously as mogoth hit me pretty good. i figured leaving all those uniques alive might come back to haunt me!</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=16882 Baredh, Sil L8095013 no-class Naugrim Belegost <p>By wobbly</p> <p><b>Comment</b>: archers</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=16880 Ascar Lango I, Angband L50 Warrior Kobold <p>By donalde</p> <p><b>Comment</b>: Kobolts are kinda funny race to play, natural RPoison is a big deal... but running warrior w/o sustSTR hurts warrior quite a bit. Winning morgoth was easy, I was definetly overstacked, I used like 6 x !*Heal* and 2 x !oLife, one mass banishment</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=16879 Alysia Ciwien, Angband L25 Paladin Half-Elf <p>By eliana</p> <p><b>Comment</b>: Second character.<br /> <br /> Not doing so well, no good loot. Lots of close calls and low on potions of healing.</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=16874 Eliana May, Angband L30 Paladin Half-Elf <p>By eliana</p> <p><b>Comment</b>: Died to an ancient multi-hued dragon.<br /> http://i.imgur.com/O3vOA7x.png<br /> <br /> It one shotted me with lightning. Killed one before so I thought I could take it on.<br /> <br /> I guess not.</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=16875 MITZEbo, Angband L26 Warrior Hobbit <p>By &lt;TheOtherMITZE@yahoo.com&gt;</p> <p><b>Comment</b>: Well, I *WAS* taking my time, slowly and methodically avoiding as many fights as I could . . . but then I got bored. So I said: "To hell with it, let's go diving!"<br /> <br /> . . . I am not experienced at diving. :(</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=16878 Feather Boa, Angband L40 Warrior Hobbit <p>By MattB</p> <p><b>Comment</b>: I reckon that's about as good as I can get it (at least without giving into the temptation to rest to bring down the xp). I thought I had a shot at the top spot, but picked up c. 200k xp on the two guardians.<br /> <br /> (Glad I didn't drink that un-ID'd potion in the (f) slot! - I found it on dl100 and had nothing to ID it with).</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=16868 Bilbo, Angband L35 Warrior Hobbit <p>By Slinking</p> <p><b>Comment</b>: This Bilbo went to netherlands. :p<br /> <br /> On a serious note, this is kind unavoidable. I need better and higher resist equipments. To do that within the time frame, I need to dive deeper, which carries more risks, including creatures who can breathe nether and kill this character in one (or almost) hit. <br /> <br /> So, basically, it’s a cycle: <br /> <br /> To get resists and good equips ---> dive deeper <br /> BUT <br /> dive deeper ---> more dangerous creatures<br /> SO<br /> To protect my character against these more dangerous creatures ---> Get resists and good equips<br /> <br /> I guess some characters are more lucky. If I have time, I’ll try again.<br /> </p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=16871 Linyana, Sil L41166994 no-class Noldor Finarfin <p>By wobbly</p> <p><b>Comment</b>: Finally.
