Re: Is this randart great sword worth switching for?

I was planning to do a fair amount of diving as well as the Abyss in order to enter Zot by XL 20 so some Stealth seemed like a good investment. Unfortunately in Zot I ran out of time to actually finish the game, but 9 out of 10 points for the week isn't too shabby. Thanks to everyone for your input!

Re: Is this randart great sword worth switching for?

Right now that's the plan after Armour reaches the next AC breakpoint. I tend to train Fighting, Armour, and Dodging pretty evenly on medium armour characters, because I'm not sure how to meaningfully compare the relative benefits of each defensive skill. But your comment (and those of others) sugge...

Re: Is this randart great sword worth switching for?

For reference, here is the character now after the first rune. With the great sword killing power has been no issue at all, but I do feel a little weak defensively without the shield. But having several escape spells available now helps out. Heading into vaults next, which is scary! Dungeon Crawl St...

Re: Is this randart great sword worth switching for?

Allow me to ballpark a bunch of numbers... For a regular shield, 1 point of Shields is equivalent to ~1/3 of a point in all spell schools for the purpose of spell success. If xp costs are roughly equal, then it makes sense to train more Shields if the spells whose success rate I care about span 3 or...

Re: Is this randart great sword worth switching for?

That's good info, thank you! Still, when you care about mitigating both types of shield penalties, could it make sense to train more Shields than weapon or spell schools? What happened this game was I started with a spear, got shafted from D:2 to D:4, but found a flaming rapier and switched to that....

Re: Is this randart great sword worth switching for?

Hmm, could you elaborate on what I should have been training instead? Getting spectral weapon to be reliable with the shield seemed like the biggest priority to me.

Is this randart great sword worth switching for?

I was already very unsure whether this character should be training maces or polearms, but on lair:5 I just found the +10 great sword of Terror {freeze, +Inv rC++} Is this a bonkers enough weapon that I should ditch my shields training for it? If it matters, I'm planning to attempt a few optional CS...

Re: CSDC S3 Week 2 - TeEE

I have work in an hour and I'm still in vaults, so it doesn't look like I'll be able to finish this one. My internet connection was not kind to me today :(

Hmm, does a +2 robe of MR count as reasonable? I could use that until something nicer turns up.

CIP: FoNe hybrid

I've really been enjoying this Formian; their strengths and limitations seem to align well to my playstyle (of not knowing when to gtfo). Any advice is welcome! Just found books of Summoning and Death, now I'm pretty unsure which spells I should be memorizing. I also have Ice, Conjurations, and Youn...

YAFVP: MuNe of Sif, 5 runes

After playing sporadically for a couple years, my first win! This was actually the first game that I saw any branches with runes in them. I was paranoid that I would get killed instantly by something I'd never seen before, so I played very slowly and looked everything up. This was also my first time...
