Worry about werewolves he says.<br /> <br /> I got one-shot by a dragon as soon as I opened that door. My end position makes me think that I went to hit "l" and missed it before I hit the numpad button leading to a elf barbeque. But I have no idea because it happened so fast.<br /> <br /> I should have been paranoid and had my resists on for when I wasn't fighting. Next time I'm doing that. Without resists, I'm mastering before I open every door.</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=16529 Baras, Angband L47 Priest Half-Troll <p>By Zikke</p> <p><b>Comment</b>: Decided to pocket the One Ring until the end, and focus on picking off uniques and finding !Exp and !Aug. Also, knowing I won't need immunities or telepathy for the end fights, I am looking for rings and "brute force" gear (+dmg, etc.). I'm thinking of melee'ing Morgoth. Being a half-troll helps with that as well.</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=16499 Hrrrm, Oangband L48 Priest Ent <p>By hjklyubn</p> <p><b>Comment</b>: Over 1000 demons killed...</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=16523 MarvinPA, PosChengband L46 Monster Giant <p>By MarvinPA</p> <p><b>Comment</b>: Started training dual-wielding with two vampiric weapons, seems pretty ridiculous with retaliation attacks from my cloak too. It leaves me with a couple of annoying resist holes though, filling in darkness/chaos/disenchantment without having light vulnerability is awkward. Starting to find more good +speed gear now at least.</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=16533 Doronen, Sil L9096908 no-class Naugrim Nogrod <p>By wobbly</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=16532 Spoof, PosChengband L21 Monster Possessor <p>By debo</p> <p><b>Comment</b>: Posting because of this ridiculous armor I just found on my DL6 angband quest. I don't even think it was the quest monster that dropped it (but maybe). <br /> <br /> I'm also pretty sure that's a randart.

It was fun to not be quite so over powered. The game was pretty slow at the begining: with no artifacts I felt I wanted to get my stats up way high (esp. HP). I spent long enough doing it that by the time I was satisfied, I had gathered a pretty good kit, and pretty much immediately descended from the dlvl 30's to the dlvl 70's to find speed items. I spent way too long hunting for high level uniques at the end; I should have wrapped things up many thousands of turns sooner. Particularly after finding the Dwarven Balance DSM; I just wasn't going to find equipment better than what I already had. I was massively over prepared for the final fight, and was additionally helped that Morgoth didn't summon very much stuff so I got to just wail on him hand-to-hand most of the time.<br /> <br /> In retrospect, I think the character was reasonably lucky, and even without artifacts he found a lot of good equipment (the early Rod of Speed, and the Holy Avenger Blade of Chaos, are particularly noteworthy).</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=16528 dragon2ME, PosChengband L23 Magic-Eater Draconian <p>By JohnCW9</p> <p><b>Comment</b>: Time to post</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=16526 Elsie, XAngband L31 Snatcher Half-Orc <p>By murphy</p> <p><b>Comment</b>: 1-8 novice warrior<br /> 8-15 novice mage<br /> 15-20 chaos shapechanger<br /> 20-21 knight archer<br /> 21 chaos beastmaster<br /> 21-31 arch-vile<br /> 31 vore<br /> <br /> power dsm and a ring of speed from a staff of wishing! first time ive ever found one of those.<br /> <br /> the description of the vore said it had a humanoid torso, so I snatched the vore body believing i would be able to wield at least some of my gear. but the vore has no equip slots, not even ring. killed when i got paralyzed by a carrior crawler, while carrying a ring of free action in my pack that i couldnt wear.</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=16524 Sage, Halls of Mist L36 Mystic Human <p>By Sage</p> <p><b>Comment</b>: Won my first created mystic, and without speedboots even. Didn't have any especial problems after I passed that horrid vault; getting WIS shuffled with my low DEX was sort of vexing, but at least it got me to 4 blows with Poseidon (really good).</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=16525 Moldoth, PosChengband L7 Monster Possessor <p>By hjklyubn</p> <p><b>Comment</b>: This is quite difficult.</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=16520 Nanen, Angband L40 Ranger High-Elf <p>By &lt;xumio@catbull.com&gt;</p> <p><b>Comment</b>: knocked out</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=16522 Hrrrm II, Oangband L45 Priest Ent <p>By the Invisible Stalker</p> <p><b>Comment</b>: From Comp 160.</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=16502 Hrrrm II, Oangband L45 Priest Ent <p>By the Invisible Stalker</p> <p><b>Comment</b>: Ouch.</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=16474 Maharth, Angband L50 Mage Gnome <p>By Angrist</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=16521 Hugo$oul 1909, PosChengband L15 Monster Possessor <p>By HugoTheGreat2011</p> <p><b>Comment</b>: Clvl: 15<br /> Body: Lizard king<br /> Location: Near swamp north of Outpost<br /> Play time: 0:08<br /> Game day: 1 - Game time: 16:25<br /> <br /> Finally a Hugo$oul with decent guaranteed opportunities that is getting somewhere without getting killed...Hugo$oul 1909! And those are opportunties for Combat-Echizen "Because it's time" and Wahha-Man the Golden. Man, these Hugo$oul numbers are starting to look like years of the 20th century already.<br /> <br /> Giant pink frog [clvl 4, near Icky cave entrance] (clvl 4)<br /> -> Green naga [clvl 5, near Icky cave entrance] (clvl 4 - 15)<br /> -> Lizard king [clvl 15, near swamp north of Outpost] (clvl 15 - now)<br /> <br /> 8 min mark:<br /> Currently at clvl 15 possessing a Lizard king doing 103 combined melee damage with a non-ego Long Sword (2d5) with AC 12 (some armour still un-IDed), +2 Base Speed, 207 MaxHP, and zero mana.<br /> <br /> Looking decently strong. Although I wish I had a Sabre-tooth tiger, steamrolling monsters shouldn't be too hard with the Lizard king.</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=16519 Sage, Halls of Mist L35 Mage Felpurr <p>By Sage</p> <p><b>Comment</b>: So it turns out that D13 speedboots are sort of good.<br /> <br /> Aside from that, Mana Ray is a hell of a spell; maybe too good? It seems to scale to your level whereas you have to pump extra mana into e.g. fire bolt to get more damage. Then again, a useful-sized fire bolt would have been expensive as hell past ~D35 so I'm not sure if the intention is to save the useful damage for one or three big things on the floor and whack the other dudes with whatever weapons you find.</p>
