Sounds like a good opportunity to improve the char before diving to 4000' or so.</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=16878 Feather Boa, Angband L38 Warrior Hobbit <p>By MattB</p> <p><b>Comment</b>: Time to kit up and get down.<br /> Not much XP available but would like to scum 99 for a while when (if) I take down Sauron. Could do with rChaos, Boots of Speed and more Lifes and rods of TO.</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.

Sauron is dead. In the opening volley I blasted the bastard with his own ring. Man, was he was pissed. Poetic justice. It was a long fight with a lot of x-bow bolts and not much melee. Thanks to Maeglin, I had a perfect hockey stick leading to the only entrance of a large, previously cleared major vault (big rectangular room with sub-rooms, all permanent rock except for the entrance). Later, I used a ?*Destruction* after -TO Sauron to clear out a swarm of 5 summoned RingWraiths, creating a nice chaotic jumble of debris for shoot'n'phase. I've been down to DL100 but didn't bother shaking hands with the big guy. I'm not ready yet. Consumables are almost there, but My kit isn't up to it. I need !CON badly. My natural CON is only 14, and even with +18 in equipment bonuses I'm only at 18/180 (705 HP when I'm at CL37). If I wasn't choosing my gear based almost entirely on CON (and speed) I'd have more options. The =Speed+15 was a nice find. I'm going to raid levels 99-100 for goodies and avoid Morgy for awhile. I just rested for 3000 turns in town to bleed off some XP (CL37->CL35). I've killed very few uniques. Summoning in the final battle could be a challenge. At least I left some wimpy uniques to dilute the horde.</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=16876 Hugo$oul 2925, PosChengband L29 Monster Possessor <p>By HugoTheGreat2011</p> <p><b>Comment</b>: Clvl: 29<br /> Body: (none)<br /> Location: Glass castle 41<br /> Play time: 2:32 (2 hour 32 min mark)<br /> Game day: 6 - Game time: 13:44<br /> <br /> Key 'every-clvl-5' stat gains:<br /> At clvl 20 (as a Sabre-tooth tiger): STR increased to 18/110<br /> At clvl 25 (as a Sabre-tooth tiger): DEX increased to 18/100<br /> <br /> Possession history:<br /> -> Sabre-tooth tiger [clvl 18, near swamp NW of Outpost] (clvl 18 - 25)<br /> -> Cave ogre [clvl 25, swamp north of Angwil] (clvl 25)<br /> -> Deep one [clvl 25, near swamp north of Angwil] (clvl 25 - 29) [kicked out of body in Glass caslte 41 after getting *pounded* by Meng Huo and his gang<br /> <br /> -> Now, I'm wandering as a Lost soul at clvl 29.<br /> <br /> 2 hour 32 min mark:<br /> Currently at clvl 29 possessing (none), doing zero melee damage, with AC 73, zero base speed (+10 Speed, when hasted), 183 MaxHP, zero mana, and 50762 gold.<br /> <br /> The story:<br /> I had quite an adventure. Finsihed more quests: Sewer, Dark elven lords, Logrus master quest, Orc camp, DQ1, and Sting quest. No Logrus master body before the 1 hour mark this time. The stairs into the Dragon's lair collapsed on me at clvl 25 at around the 54th min mark. Using a Scroll of Acquirement (from the Telmora Arena) in the Dragon's lair netted me the 'Stone Mask'. I successfully completed the Sting quest. After those, I screwed around with the Glass castle to kill time. Ran into close calls in that place. Finding good stuff like the Cloak of Jack of Shadows was definitely worth it though.<br /> <br /> And this:<br /> Another crazy moment occurred at clvl 29, Glass castle 41, around 2:23 mark. I got kicked out of and lost my Deep one body after getting pounded by Meng Huo and his gang. I had no idea what happened there. Unfortunately, my shit overflowed onto the ground -- including Rohirrim and my Katana (Death), leaving me in despair for a bit. First, I used a Potion of Speed. Then, I destroyed a non-ego Iron Helm to make room for Rohirrim, which I picked up. I used a Phase door scroll to see if I could manuver around and pick up the remaining dropped equipment...nope. I had to use a Teleport Level scroll to get out there. On the next level, I found myself surrounded by Shadow hounds...no thanks! After a few tries of getting a Teleport Level scroll to work, while the nearby Shadow hounds breathed on me, I was teleported back to the last Glass castle level...level 41, the same place as before, yet the RNG placed me near a Demonologist corpse... and I stopped right there!<br /> <br /> When I get back, I'll probably possess the Demonologist right away, equip Sting + Rohirrim/Demon-Lord armour and attempt to retrieved my dropped equipment.<br /> <br /> Anyone noticed that I have the 'Stone Mask'? I wonder what happens if I put this on as a Possessor?<br /> <br /> Key finds:<br /> 1) The Cloak of Jack of Shadows [1,+19] (+7 to stealth) {Clvl 28, Glass castle 40, Wormtongue (most likely)}<br /> 2) The Small Sword 'Sting' (1d6) (+7,+8) (+3) {Cf}<br /> 3) a Ring of Protection [+16] {PoDiFe;Si, Clvl 27, Glass castle 40, Sorcerer?}<br /> 4) Metal Brigandine Armour of the Demon-Lord (-3,+4) [19,+11] (+1) {-5%} {cursed}<br /> 5) The Metal Brigandine Armour of the Rohirrim [19,+15] (+2) {Sh, Clvl 27, Glass castle 40, Shadow drake?}<br /> 6) The Cloak of Merry (+1,+1) [1,+7] (+1) {Clvl 27, Glass castle 40?, ?monster}<br /> 7) a Large Leather Shield of Elvenkind [6,+15] (+2 to stealth) {-StWi;Cf}<br /> 8) The Iron Helm 'Stone Mask' (+8,+8) [5,-10] (+3) {-Li, Clvl 25, Dragon's lair, ?Acquirement}</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=16848 Killbo, Angband L37 Warrior Hobbit <p>By murphy</p> <p><b>Comment</b>: thanks! :-)</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=16877 Basil, Halls of Mist L34 Rogue Gnome <p>By Sage</p> <p><b>Comment</b>: Another win.</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=16863 Bilbo, Angband L44 Warrior Hobbit <p>By Shinedog</p> <p><b>Comment</b>: Did it. </p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=16874 Eliana May, Angband L25 Paladin Half-Elf <p>By eliana</p> <p><b>Comment</b>: Found a decent axe.
