Found a staff of Hydra Summoning that helped disperse the enemy attacks. The @#$% Bat proved to be more trouble than Uggo-whatever. Picked up a better telepor away wand and a rod of recall, also a better hat.</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=19758 Crumples, PosChengband L25 Monster Mimic <p>By murphy</p> <p><b>Comment</b>: giant brown bat > water hound > phantom beast<br /> <br /> giant brown bat is very playable and kinda fun, +20 speed makes up for terrible melee and minimal equipment slots.<br /> <br /> upon reaching level 15, went to forest to grab a hound form, got water hound.<br /> <br /> i spied gachapin in icky cave, so went back to angband and descended to meet the level 24 guardian. he was a nuisance but didnt present any real danger<br /> <br /> got super lucky and learned phantom beast on angband level 24. passwall and excellent barehanded damage</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=19757 Tarrant, PosChengband L29 Monk Draconian <p>By Shadowdweller</p> <p><b>Comment</b>: I've been wanting to play around with Craft magic, and so decided to go the monk route. The school has been pretty solid - the ability to enchant missiles and armor is certainly worthwhile. I have high hopes for berserk, though it's been a trifle costly to use much so far.<br /> <br /> Part of the idea behind this build (shadow draconian) was to play around with the supposedly draining Dragon Strike. Hope it turns out to be suitably awesome because Shadow Draconian is otherwise pathetic. The area attack certainly rounds out my magic, but the damage is just lackluster and on top of that there seems to be a hugely high rate of resistance or partial resistance (some sort of save mechanic?).</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=19755 Because, PosChengband L13 Time-Lord Wood-Elf <p>By debo</p> <p><b>Comment</b>: I dunno about the rest of it, but these things are fun to start at least! Gotta fix that wis drain.</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=19754 Hortaan, Sil L6096646 no-class Noldor Feanor <p>By ranger jeff</p> <p><b>Comment</b>: First attempt ended suddenly, surrounded by orcs and crebains.<br /> <br /> Unfamiliar with Sil...</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=19753 Hortaan, Sil L5098437 no-class Noldor Feanor <p>By wobbly</p> <p><b>Comment</b>: Hey got the correct save this time. Quick go at adapting early listen to a feanor versatility archer. Died just short of listen. It actually felt more viable then I was suspecting, I'd just have to play a bit more careful to get it to work.</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=19749 Hortaan, Sil L11090040 no-class Noldor Feanor <p>By Thraalbee</p> <p><b>Comment</b>: Meh</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=19752 Hortaan, Sil L12093582 no-class Noldor Feanor <p>By Psi</p> <p><b>Comment</b>: Not enough damage output and got bored and sloppy. Probably should have gone with a two hander but had three ruby serpents on me and needed some protection against their breaths. Was too slow anyway.</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=19751 SneakyBoy2, Angband L49 Rogue High-Elf <p>By Egavactip</p> <p><b>Comment</b>: Kind of a frustrating character development. I ended up having three big lags/gaps. Basically, I could have any two of the following three: damage, speed, constitution. But I couldn't have all three. I got through all but the last two battles with a hasted speed of no more than 23. And I struggled to do more than around 370 base damage. And I was struggling with hit points, too. The hit points began to come around at the very end, thank goodness. A Dwarven Power Dragon Scale Mail helped with that (one of *two* power dragon armors I found). I got tired of scrounging around in the 90s looking for a better weapon or a speed miracle, so I reconfigured my gear and decided to try the last two battles anyway, even with crappy damage. <br /> <br /> Sauron ended up being trapped in the middle of a huge vault, so I had to go into it to get him. When I got down to level 100, there were two more huge vaults and I was afraid that Morgoth was in one of them, but he wasn't. However, a bunch of uniques were stuck in there. Thank goodness, because I had bypassed a lot of uniques (not doing much damage or being very fast, I chose to avoid them more than I usuallly do) and Morgoth brought all of them back, sometimes three or four at a time. However, leaving that aside, the final battle against Morgoth was easier than I had anticipated, despite my crappy damage, because my runes of protection lasted forever and Morgoth spent far more time dancing around them than summoning creatures. Thank goodness! This is the first time I won the game with a character below level 50.</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=19750 Father Iron, Angband L17 Priest Dwarf <p>By robbiodobbio</p> <p><b>Comment</b>: First Ironman attempt, no recall + forced descent. Going ok so far, going to keep diving.</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=19731 Sythander, PosChengband L30 Time-Lord Half-Ogre <p>By Shadowdweller</p> <p><b>Comment</b>: So blasting hasn't been too terrible with enhancements. Inherent speed bonuses and hasting help a fair bit. I do note that this guy has much better melee ability than a typical mage. Not sure why - maybe half-ogre bonus and stats, maybe proficiencies, maybe attack progression, maybe all of the above. Took down Ubbo-Sathla, but unfortunately couldn't get all his loot due to all his spawn. Managed to pick Hagen's Spear which I would love to use...but can't quite bring myself to give up the +4 Wis bonus from my present weapon. Which translates to nearly 50 SP and a goodly +11% fail rate on haste. Haven't had a chance to play around with time shield yet; looks to be a retaliation power which might be good or might be dangerous.</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=19748 Eluinda, Sil L11098301 no-class Noldor Finarfin <p>By wobbly</p> <p><b>Comment</b>: Forgot to turn on silence before getting to close to an easterling spy</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=19744 Menwe, Sil L15080993 no-class Naugrim Belegost <p>By taptap</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=19747 PC Random II, PosChengband L3 Blue-Mage Zombie <p>By budswell</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=19746 PC Random I, PosChengband L2 Mirror-Master Archon <p>By budswell</p>
