I'm going to use it for a bit until I figure out what other enchantments it might have. I really need to find some more armor. Almost died to a room full of nagas. I might return to town to pick up some healing potions if the situation seems insurmountable.</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=21439 Uthlob, Angband L4 Priest Dwarf <p>By &lt;00manonthemoon00@gmail.com&gt;</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=21427 Uthlob, Angband L31 Priest Dwarf <p>By erikd</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=21438 Arminas VII, Angband L33 Ranger High-Elf <p>By yarps</p> <p><b>Comment</b>: Pretty nice weapon there. Also unusual that I'm a high-level ranger, yet my best missile weapon choice is a sling. (Best bow so far = long bow of accuracy).</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=21437 BoldBoy1, Angband L50 Warrior Kobold <p>By Egavactip</p> <p><b>Comment</b>: This character had a fairy godmother, who gave him all sorts of cool stuff early in the game, including not one but *two* Potions of Experience. The character's only weakness was in a lack of speed, which was significant all the way to the early endgame but got better after that, though still didn't have speed +20 until very late in the game. Sauron for some reason was a pest, causing tons of damage. Fighting Morgoth I discovered that I had "skipped" killing a huge number of uniques, because he brought them all down on my head. Other than that, it wasn't too bad.</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=21406 Underhouse, PosChengband L50 Warlock Human <p>By murphy</p> <p><b>Comment</b>: round 2 against the serpent, i did more dimension dooring and destruction and wall building to keep his summonings off the battlefield. when I got him hurt bad i just ignored the crowd of L's around me and hit him with my best stuff<br /> <br /> yay, first poschengband win!<br /> <br /> I enjoyed spider warlock, it seems very playable, you start off a little weak but by around level 30 your spiders can win the big fights for you, by level 40 your pets are not as much help any more but your eldrich blast is strong enough you no longer need them, and then dimension door is super awesome<br /> </p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=21434 Hana, ComPosband L50 Tourist Yeek <p>By clouded</p> <p><b>Comment</b>: Won shortly after the last update, was tired of scumming DL98.</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=21405 Abi2, Angband L35 Priest Half-Elf <p>By &lt;abi&gt;</p> <p><b>Comment</b>: LVL35 2550' uniques are becoming a trouble -- and tougher native level monsters -- Haradekket is still great for lower level monster groups -- can even handle drolems! -- desperately looking for speed upgrades ... too many monsters are much faster than me now</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=21436 Hiniol, Z+Angband L1 Ranger Human <p>By Fortyrogue</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=21324 DarkWyrm, PWMAngband L42 Unbeliever Half-Troll <p>By PowerWyrm</p> <p><b>Comment</b>: Resuming this character.

Used a wand of stone to mud to create a long hockey-stick antisummoning corridor, filled it with runes of protection (glyphs of warding, for a priest), and pelted the Boss with every wand of drain life @ had found. Used over 30 charges until empty, then fired off two arrows for the kill. Now, to consider how to get enough speed and banishment consumables on these persistent levels for the final fight with the Big Boss.</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=21428 Huin, Angband L28 Warrior High-Elf <p>By &lt;00manonthemoon00@gmail.com&gt;</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=21435 Bloody, PosChengband L17 Blood-Knight Dwarf <p>By budswell</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=21422 Uthlob, Angband L26 Priest Dwarf <p>By ShadowTechnology</p> <p><b>Comment</b>: Ha! Well I guess I deserve that one. After clearing the rest of level 26 and finding 3 weapons with unknown rhuns, I decided to approach the sole survivor (a Cloud Giant, 11 levels out of depth) and swing each weapon in turn to see if any of them had the Slay Giant or Resist Electricity rhun. Guess what. None did. You die. <br /> And I was just reaching for the m-b-b for Portal. Missed my mark by 2 HP. D'OH!</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=21423 Uthlob, Angband L45 Priest Dwarf <p>By Arjen</p> <p><b>Comment</b>: Forgot I took off the Firestar...</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=21432 Gwarl, ComPosband L42 Priest Half-Troll <p>By Gwarl</p> <p><b>Comment</b>: Paralysis death</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=21431 Dennis, ComPosband L43 Devicemaster Human <p>By Sideways</p> <p><b>Comment</b>: I had no luck whatsoever with items at any point during this run. I suppose I can't complain because my previous character had totally outrageous luck with items... the RNG gives, and the RNG takes. Unfortunately this character was a lot weaker than the last one even inherently, and would have needed the luck a lot more than that one did. <br /> <br /> Having -7 speed in plain view of a great venom wyrm, a dark elven shade, a durahan and a winged horror is not recommended, especially if your character lacks rPois, and I will endeavour to avoid this next itme.</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=21430 WelfBoy2, Angband L47 Warrior High-Elf <p>By Egavactip</p> <p><b>Comment</b>: I realized I hadn't done a high-elf warrior before, so I decided to try one, even though high elves are not my favorite character class because they take long to progress. WelfBoy1 died by knockout in the late mid-game or early late-game due to a string of bizarre circumstances, inc. equipment failure and cave collapses. WelfBooy2 fared much better, helped out by some early speed, though he didn't have a good weapon for a long time. In the late game, though, he got a great one, and also some great equipment, including two rings of power, which allowed me to shift around some other gear and basically have resistance to everything and much else besides. With all that, the final battles were not difficult.</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=21429 Keigo Oyamada, ComPosband L50 Mage Spectre <p>By Bostock</p> <p><b>Comment</b>: Although I didn't fulfill my dream of a mage taking down J without offensive devices, I did at least finally win with a mage. The character started life as a male Hera Demigod, and the plan was to have so much mana regeneration from Clear Mind that I wouldn't need offensive devices... but then I got impulsive with the Stone of Chaos ("just a couple tries at good mutations won't hurt") and got race-morphed very quickly. I really like high-XP races, so I finally settled on the spectre. Fortunately the only actually bad mutation (-4 CON) was removed without removing the huge number of good ones.<br /> <br /> Wizardstaff was Old Castle reward (all list-of-rewards quests are currently bugged and only give the best reward). +14 ring of speed was from Oberon, and it finally convinced me to go twin speed rings instead of speed + Tulkas... fortunately I found a really good Dwarven amulet in Zul to patch the hole (an inferior one is at home). The wacky crown was an Oberon drop too, as was the body armor. The wings were Artifact Created in R'yleh:96 after offing the Babble with a poison needle. The gloves were a last-minute reforge when I was trying to fit in the new hat, ring, and armor; they replaced thief gloves that had +4 speed - c'est la vie. <br /> <br /> J went mostly OK except I spaced once towards the end (J was at one star and I was pumped) and ended up non-invulnerable, feared, at half health, and surrounded by J and several deep uniques, chain-quaffing potions of Life and treading water for a couple turns. Finally lucked out with a successful teleport while under Light Stun.<br /> <br /> Hope to off J with a no-offensive-device Hera yellow-mage someday :)</p>
