Re: CIP: Trying to win with a Human Fighter

Intelligence is legit. I would keep doing that. Doesn't take much into charms to get regen, spectral weapon, rMissiles...

Re: Numeric move keys nonfunctional when monster in sight

I know the lettered move keys, thanks. They're not a good option for me.

Sounds like no one else is experiencing this. Well damn. I guess I'll try to dive into custom key mapping and see if I can't fix it myself. >.<

Thanks for the advice, all. :)

I have seen other 'cip' posts about gargoyles here with insane ACs by the end game. I tend to try to hedge my bets; if I can't have EV with my AC, I'd rather shields..

Maybe I should drop shields altogether and train up EV? Not exactly a gargoyl'e's forte, but yeah, Ash boosts can be big. Good idea?
