Re: MiBe going for first win

It has been awhile since I've played, but if things haven't changed too much, that longbow can win you the game. If you're not using a shield it might make sense to tank up on armor and impale things from a distance.

Is this a good or a bad artifact? Genuinely curious. I'd be inclined to say bad on pretty much 95% of characters.

The best strategy to beat Mennas is to immediately read a teleport scroll whenever you see him. Fighting Mennas is one of those things that if you have to ask if you should, you shouldn't.

If you really want to try extended maybe you should try a HoFi or HoGl of Okawaru, transitioning to TSO once you have gotten the 2 lair runes, the silver rune, and the slimy rune. I think it's the easiest personally, but there are other very strong combos as well.
