[CiP] Promising HaHu of Okawaru

Hi Tavern! Long time no see... I haven't played Crawl since 0.9 version times I believe. Yesterday I decided to kill some time with it and welp, I'm hooked to this damn game again! I have been trying HaHu for some time now and finally I have a really great going one. I know it's a bit early but I ha...

Re: Something a little more... interesting.

Is Tm really worthwhile for a Troll? It seems that the damage bonus from Blade Hands isn't all that much more than just claws alone... is it worth the skill points invested in Tm? I've seen Statue Form troll performance. The melee damage that beast was delivering was the highest I EVER saw during m...

Well, the Spriggan's Knife isn't that great.

Re: Mountain Dwarf Fighter Guide

I echo Elyvilon as a superb choice for MDFi at early game.

Re: Kobold Berserker guide

One thing to also consider for a KoBe is a ranged weapon. Crossbows are a good choice for kobolds as they have +2 attitude in it. You are very unlikely to run out of bolts between yaktaurs and Trog's gifts and silver bolts are especially awesome against undead enemies.

On a quick blade or other fast weapon (like whips, etc), you want an additive brand (like electrocution, pain, distortion) because you get a lot of attacks with it and so the effect will be applied more times.
