YAVP: DDFi^Ely almost died.

Barely won a Deep Dwarf game by the skin of my teeth. A Pan Lord and his demon friends almost tormented me to death. Still, despite how strong this character seemed to be, I felt like I was really relying heavily on Ely's heals on almost every other encounter in Depths. Even had to read a scroll of ...

YAVP! HOGl^Mak

I took quite a long break from Crawl, but decided to pick up a game I started from last year. Anyways, this character started really strong in finding Crystal Plate and an artifact Battleaxe of speed. This character didn't really face much difficulty and was even able to face off against OoFs single...

Re: CIP: DEWz^Kiku wondering whether to go Snake or Shoals f

Snake will be much easier. You overtrained spellcasting IMHO, also it's probably better to put remaining bonus stats in either Dex (if you stay in robe) or Str (if you go for MDS or ring mail). Kiku characters are better played as hybrids IMHO. Edit. I wouldn't worry about 3rd rune yet, you still h...

CIP: DEWz^Kiku wondering whether to go Snake or Shoals first

I have a DEWz that got lucky with an early D2 Kiku altar and some good book drops which gave me a solid direction towards summoning once I go to the late game. To put it simply, things have been going fine for this pale elf so far. Unfortunately, I went through all the easy portions of the dungeon a...

Re: Antimagic quick blade or vorpal-branded double sword

Double sword deals much more damage, antimagic brand does not add any damage and does nothing if you cannot overpass AC due to low base damage of quickblade. Quickblade can be great while berserking though. Edit. I mean antimagic quickblade alone is not a good weapon unless you find some extra slay...

Antimagic quick blade or vorpal-branded double sword

Trog has been kind enough to give me two good weapons: an antimagic quick blade and a double sword of slicing. What I'm wondering is if the quick blade will be able to carry me for the whole game or if I should trasition to the double sword? No matter the weapon I plan on primarily using, I do plan ...

Re: Give advice using the absolute worst reasoning possible

You should play Ogre because they get a strength boost every third level. ER is a non-isssue for them, so that makes them a very resilient species.

Best way of building plate-casting worshipper of Vehumet

One thing that I've been itching to try lately is a plate-casting caster of Vehumet who mainly uses conjurations when enemies are far away or if they're too dangerous to fight in melee such as Juggernauts or Iron Giants. Seeing as OoD is a single-school spell, getting it online with Vehumet's wizard...

Re: DsGl^Kiku in need of direction

Getting Invocations to 15 on this character is a waste (and impossible) because Kiku doesn't use that skill. I don't have experience with this type of character but if i were trying to cast level 7—8 spells while wearing FDA in a 3 rune game (not sure if that's possible and "optimal" give...

DsGl^Kiku in need of direction

I got two good Lajatangs from scrolls of acquirement: a +7 flaming lajatang and a +2 lajatang of speed. The flaming one is one that I plan on leaning on throughout Lair to deal with those pesky Hydras, but I'm wondering on what to do with the one that has the speed ego. I could pain brand it with Ki...

Re: Wizard Start

I haven't seen anyone in this thread mention SpWz yet, so I'll plug my piece in about this combination. Speed and Blink make this character really survivable early on, and Mephitic Cloud synergizes well with a spriggan's good aptitude for short blades and stealth if you don't find a good book early....

What is best armor for melee-centric Kiku worshiper

I usually play either pure casters or mostly pure melee fighters, but I have been smitten by Kiku lately and have been play a number of HOGl and HONe Kiku worshipers. I've been playing them in heavier armor such as scale and chain mail, but I have been hearing some people prefer to play them in leat...

YAVP: Got my first win in this game with MiFi^Oka

While I was trekking through the Abyss to find its rune, I came across two scrolls of acquirement. After I got the rune and left the Abyss, I noticed that I only had one pip of rF. Not exactly ideal for handling Zot. Naturally, I used one of the scrolls to acquire jewelry, and boy was I lucky. I got...

Re: CIP: MiFi^Oka with some obscene luck

Don't worry, the character dump is still current. I was training translocation earlier since I was actually able to make a dent on it's castability while I was wearing Plate Armour. Armour will be getting extra focus on training with a side of fighting. I need to make up for the AC drop that the hat...

Re: CIP: MiFi^Oka with some obscene luck

Had code tags in the character dump, but I made that post using my phone earlier. Because of that, the text got all messed up. The issue should be fixed now. Also, thanks for the weapon suggestion.

CIP: MiFi^Oka with some obscene luck

I felt that this character was something that needed to be posted. Found a Hat of the Alchemist early on, got a number of good randart great swords, and found a CPA on Lair 8. The only real problem I had thus far was a lack of identify scrolls. All I need to do is invest a lot of skill points into a...

Re: YASD: SpCj of Vehumet sniped after getting rune

I suppose I can do that when there's no shortage of edible food as long as I can keep level five spells hungerless. I use Battlesphere too often for me to do otherwise.

Re: YASD: SpCj of Vehumet sniped after getting rune

The point is, you don't really need your level 6 spells to be completely hungerless when you have so much food. Also PArrow should be fine in Snake, it pierces one level of rPois pretty well. True enough. How many pips of hunger would you want level six spells to have if you were playing that chara...

Re: YASD: SpCj of Vehumet sniped after getting rune

I normally give my Spriggans at least 27 EV. Sacrificing a point in Conjuration and Fire respectively could have helped in that. I also thought I would be using level six spells more often, so I trained it until they were hungerless. Poisen Arrow wasn't all that useful in Snake, but Freezing Cloud ...

YASD: SpCj of Vehumet sniped after getting rune

I cleared through all but the last levels of the Swamp and moved on to the Snake Pits since I didn't think my character was ready to deal with all the Hydras on the last floor of the Swamp branch. The first floor of Snake was rather easy, but the second floor gave me problems since Vashnia just refu...
