Re: Why Do Crossbows Exist?

They also have a much higher base damage for piercing AC and a higher skill cap for going super late game. In the late game, longbows are simply better. They are faster then the big crossbows, and 7 vs 10 aut delay means +30% damage. A higher base damage does not compensate for that. It is the earl...

Is Linley's Crawl still available somewhere? If yes, then playing a grey elf can be done. Playing a gray elf is a tougher challenge, but perhaps there is a way.

Re: No Abyss Portal in Depths

Vaults and Royal Jelly require your character to have a fairly high power level to do safely. Abyss can almost always be done with careful play, even if your power level is low, because the average number of tele scrolls you'll have to burn is about half as much as the number that generate in Abyss...

When you are a top player, it is easy to think like Implojin does above: Crawl is super easy, therefore it is almost impossible to lose with any character.
