Hello, I am trying to win a vampire ice elementalist neither of which I have won before. And I'm also worshipping Sif Muna, who I have not won before and decided to try out with the rework.

Oh man, this felt really good seeing as I'd attempted this combo nearly 100 times before finally winning it. I'd actually taken a break from Crawl because I'd gotten so frustrated by trying to win this combo, but also was too stubborn to give up and try a different one. When I saw the tournament was...

Re: Bultungin/Gnoll Feedback

I played and won a gnoll during the tournament, I thought it was kinda cool as a change-up from 'regular crawl' but it's not a species I think I'd revisit super frequently.

Re: CIP HEAE Oops, I did it again

If I'm not mistaken you can cast deflect missiles in the Robe, then switch armors, provided you're in a safe location. It's only really an problem if you want to recast mid-fight. Also DMsl isn't super important until vaults (and isn't all that important there imo)

Definitely memorise Shadow creatures + Mana Vipers + Aura of Abjuration + Blink + PoG


In that order? Because the whole point is that I don't have nearly enough spell levels to memorize all of those. Also. no deflect missiles?
