Re: (CiP) Harold the Gladiator Ghoul

Sadly, Harold II died to a two-headed ogre. I thought I could take it on with Heroism and a Haste potion, but this is what you get when you think that Okawaru is "Trog lite". Should have teleported away with my scroll. Next time, I'll probably use a sturdier melee race than a Ghoul.

Re: (CiP) Harold the Gladiator Ghoul

Harold shambled through floors 3-5. He found a much-needed ring mail and +2 helmet. A Scarf of Resistance was pretty nice too, but that was toward the end of this play session, so it hasn't seen much use yet. Really, I'm beginning to think I should have started as a Fighter instead of a Gladiator. D...

(CiP) Harold the Gladiator Ghoul

After messing around with a Ghoul Monk, I decided to make a more serious attempt with a Ghoul Gladiator. (He should really be named Harold II, but I didn't type in the Roman numeral while generating the character.) The first floor was simple. Eating meat dealt with any minor damage Harold took, and ...

Melee Ghouls

I started testing out a Ghoul Monk named named Harold (what else?). He was fun to play, but seemed a bit lacking in defenses compared to the sturdier races. He died to one of my Draconian ghosts because I wasn't really taking that playthrough seriously. Gladiator is a recommended background for Ghou...

Re: Draconian Advice

I currently have a Mottled Draconian Conjurer to test out magic characters, and it's currently plowing through the Lair with the starter Conjurer book. My Ecumenical Temple layout was. . .unusual (several common gods were absent), so I thought I'd try out Hepliak. The Battlemage ancestor is dim, and...

Re: Draconian Advice

Put on the boots, they are near-guaranteed to be non-bad, and very likely to be good. You may drop the dagger and spear, these are useless for you. With M&F at 6-8 I'd start putting 33% of exp into dodging. ' On D:3, I followed stickyfingers's advice. Maces and Flails is now at 66%, and Dodging...

Re: Draconian Advice

This has nothing to do with Draconians, but it might lead to useful discussion, especially for those of us like me who are still trying to figure out how to get the basic 3-rune victory on Crawl 0.19. I chose a Minotaur Fighter for this run, named Aegeus. Why a Fighter instead of a Berserker? Fighte...

Re: Draconian Advice

You should post a character dump or morgue of your dead character. It will make the advice you receive more concrete and relevant. People can also point out other areas you may have overlooked; often the situation that killed you is a symptom of a deeper problem with the way you built the character...

Re: Draconian Advice

I usually don't enter the lair's rune branches until I've cleared lair, orc, and dungeon. And I usually don't go into the last level (level four with the rune) until I've cleared as much of everything else as possible, including some of the safer parts of Elf. What are the enemy "danger levels...

Re: Draconian Advice

After I clear lair what typicallly works for me is to clear the dungeon/orcish mines next. Their difficulty level is usually lower then the rune branches. I ended up dying to several Spriggan Druids "calling" me in the Swamp. The hornet riders can be a pain too. There seems to be a diffic...

Re: Draconian Advice

This Draconian may become my most successful character. *Knocks on wood* I've mostly cleared out the Lair. I fell through a shaft into Lair 6 surrounded by enemies and managed to fight my way out with a teleport scroll and Trog's powers. The two Rune branches available right now are the spider cave ...

Re: Draconian Advice

Dr is decent overall, but for example DrIE and DrCj are good. As for gods, pick one that you find early and which is not a challenge god (Xom, Qaz, Chei). I understand why Xom and Chei are challenging to work with, but why Qazlal? I guess it's all the noise that Qazlal makes, even though I don't ty...

Draconian Advice

Hello! I've been playing Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup for a little while, but my characters tend to die either before Lair, or manage to get through Lair only to die in the first Rune branch attempted (e.g. Snake Pit). Not too long ago, I listened to a Roguelike Radio episode about how expert players le...
