Many smaller upgrades has put me at no burden and > 200 hp. Not too bad although I lost a lot of stealth which had been super useful <br /> <br /> </p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=18346 Puc, TomeNET L55 Shaman Maia <p>By Arjen</p> <p><b>Comment</b>: Finally got an Emperor and even got him to lvl 55, but getting exp is a pain. The penalty of Maia is insane. :) But the loot is good and I'm getting that maxed spellpower someday! (Or die trying).</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=18301 Iri, FAangband L50 Paladin Longbeard <p>By Regalia</p> <p><b>Comment</b>: I guess I misunderstood. I was pretty certain I got new curses on my stuff due to monster attacks. But it never "happened" again, so I likely just misread a description or something.<br /> <br /> Sauron vaporized Iri's !healing stock and still didn't die... I guess it was my fault for fighting him out in the open. Replenishing the stock will take forever...</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=18345 Beon III, Angband L50 Mage Human <p>By Elrond</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=18344 Hugo$oul 8145, PosChengband L24 Monster Possessor <p>By HugoTheGreat2011</p> <p><b>Comment</b>: Killed by an out-of-LOS Phoenix when I was making space for the Scroll of Acquirement near the stairway out of the Dragon's lair</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=18327 Bolverk, PosChengband L34 Monster Giant <p>By debo</p> <p><b>Comment</b>: Smaug and cloning pits down.

If you count all the time I spent with Hengband, I've only been trying on and off for years ;-). After a string of death paladins I switched to daemon magic. I think I went a little overboard toward the end, but I wanted to make sure I was powerful enough to kill the Serpent. Overall I was satsified with the end game power of daemon magic. Polymorph demonlord is great. Hellfire makes any good unique a walk in the park (although I can't verify that for Nodens because I never tried him). Having a resist time spell is a nice touch that removes a major annoyance. Horrify is useful throughout the entire game.<br /> <br /> Overall, I think the biggest reason that I was able to take this guy all the way is I realized the value of the Armageddon Stone. The high power and short cooldown on its activation are just too good.<br /> <br /> One curious fact: my longest tenured piece of equipment was the Metal Scale Mail of Julian, which I picked up around clvl 35. It has as much AC as a decent dragon scale mail, a useful stat increase for a fighter, and a useful activation.</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=18314 Elmon, PosChengband L50 Mystic Wood-Elf <p>By ThunderToads</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=18342 Ceridwenna, Angband L48 Mage High-Elf <p>By Rei Tei</p> <p><b>Comment</b>: After playing a gnome mage I just had to try out a high elf mage :) I usually wait til lv 50 to battle morgoth but high elf takes too long to reach lv 50. Mstorm is still OP with high elf but is harder to cast than with a gnome.</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=18341 Horthmin, Reposband L50 Monster Greater Balrog <p>By jrodman</p> <p><b>Comment</b>: I decided to give "posband" a try for the first time ever, after hearing lots about it around a decade ago.<br /> <br /> My first character was a spider, and it''s still sitting around somewhere unloved, but not dead.<br /> <br /> For some reason playing as a Balrog grabbed my attention, and I ran with it. It turned out to be pretty overpowered, between the ridiculous stat gains of the balrog race, their built-in resists, and most importantly their immunity to fire.<br /> <br /> If that wasn't enough, a Power Dragon Scale Mail of Permanence dropped before stat gain had really gotten started. Between the racial bonuses and this item (resist everything, sustain everything), I found myself being kind of blase about every piece of gear after this. <br /> <br /> I still played ridiculously slowly because I'm paranoid and bad.<br /> <br /> Happy angbanding!</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=18339 Hugo$oul 8144, PosChengband L26 Monster Possessor <p>By HugoTheGreat2011</p> <p><b>Comment</b>: I mashed away this one...<br /> <br /> Hugo$oul 8144 post 30 min mark<br /> <br /> Key stat upgrades:<br /> At clvl 20 interval (as a Lizard king): STR increased from 18/111 to 18/119<br /> At clvl 22 after quaffing a !DEX (source: ?) in Angwil (as a Lizard king): DEX increased from 18/20 to 18/31<br /> At clvl 23 after quaffing a !

When extra attack gloves and soon after the One turned up, that didnt matter much anymore. </p>
