Re: Make Kobolds the nightstalker species

Nightstalker would definitely make kobolds more interesting. Foul stench and to a lesser extent thin skeletal structure would also make sense, but clearly not full ranks of both. Kobolds are tied to foul stenches, and it is possible the -1 los and +50 camo may be too powerful at level one. Also them...

Re: RIP wands of scattershot

The new evokable item Tin of tremorstones seems to be similar at least flavor wise.

Re: Please stop nerfing good stuff

I don't think we should necessarily stop nerfing good stuff, and I am fine with item nerfs. Nerfing things that are reliable such as starting spells is also substantially higher impact that nerfing rng based loot such a reflection/reflect missiles equipment that seems borderline OP. The other change...

Re: Abundance of robes!

My last run I didn't encounter any kind of gloves that had positive enchantments until after my first two runes. I did find two hilariously negative artefact gloves. A minus 1 with minus stats and multiple resistances and a minus - 5 with only flight. I even open up vaulted doors to get one of these...

Re: CIP: MfSu - how do break iron grates?

I also saw that vault on my last run, which was especially nasty for a pure fighter type. Thankfully, there were other stairs outside of that death trap. I just decided to avoid it entirely. I am not sure if it should be removed, but it was certainly challenging.

Re: First Online Win - Any advice for more advanced wins?

Thanks for the input. I will try Crypt and potentially Hell Vesibule for my next run. How does zig compare or is it too variable to rank reliably in difficulty? Torment resistance I assume is N+, not sure how to get shatter resistance. TSO is TheShiningOne I assume. Maybe, I can try gargoyle fighter.

Re: Thank you!

The recent scroll of acquirement changes are nice, and so are the standardization of ring of attributes/evasion. I am not an expert on spellcasters, but the changes to spells seems to make the early game even more harder than it was. Was that the intent besides making the schools more distinct from ...

First Online Win - Any advice for more advanced wins?

Managed to score my first online win and .025 version win (11th win overall) with a self imposed challenge that all sighted orb of fires must be killed. I have won 5 runes (abyss + ooze(was considerably tougher than abyss). Despite this success, I don't consider myself an expert even though I do on ...

Re: YAVP: MiFi of Gz: First Win!

Congratulations on your first win and with Gozag no less. I think a lot of people have their first with either Trog or Okawaru, but Gozag is also a solid choice.

Re: YAVP -- First Victory Ever - Newish Player

Second win. This time with a wanderer and with 4 runes. Pretty much went a fighter route with Oka. Okawaru seems a bit weaker early on, but seem safer and offers higher value with both armor weapon gifts. Wanderer started with very high fighting (5-6), some armor, some sword, and some evocations ski...

Re: CIP: One sneaky MiFi^Oka, first time ever in Extended

Looks like a solid attempt so far, but I a still very new. Summon alone are pretty good distractions. You do have blink, but you don't have many other good panic buttons learned, such as teleport other. The only other notable summon you have available is summon forest and shadow creatures, which can...

Re: YAVP! FoFi^Qazlal Very first win

Congratulations. I just scored my first victory myself, and I don't think I would be brave enough to try pull off the formicid and Qaz combo. Formicid is listed a hard race. Is that mainly due to their lack of teleport? It is very impressive that you managed to snag your first victory with not only ...

Re: YAVP: 0.9.2 DEIE; Stuck in Pan-Limbo

Congratulations. It must have been grind and a pain to stay there for that long.

Is there a sizable community that plays on older builds? I am fairly new and have only played on the latest two builds. Am I missing out on much? And is this a good build to dabble with?

YAVP - 1st win and now 2nd win with Wanderer with 4 runes

Hello everyone. Starting playing this game again around Thanksgiving time after having dabbled with it in the past with around 30-40 runs earlier in the year. However, I have beaten over a dozen difficult old school roguelikes like ADOM, TOME and Nethack, so I am experienced with this type of game. ...

Re: Hepliaklqana challenge completedd

Congratulations. It's interesting that you have had most success with Battlemage. It definitely seems the strongest when you are running a full tank. Is it general consensus that Hexer is better for general use due to the ridiculous utility of paralyze, mass confusion, and drain? Or is it possible t...
