Re: CIP - DE Su/Ne XP27

Hell, I'll get you started. I see a lot on this forum about how badass Summon Dragon is, and now I'm thinking my Necromancy-using characters (who dabble in Summoning for Haunt) might try it. About what level of Summoning did that become reliable for you? I wish I could tell you as I only learned su...

Congratulations! And extra commentary is cool. I know there have to be all kinds players who lurk on this forum thinking "Wow, how the hell do those 15-runers do it?" I'm sure they'd gladly read anything you have to say about your victory (that you haven't already). Thanks. I could upload...

Re: The 'Questions too small to need their own thread' threa

Apologies for the late reply. Armour's effect on you uses Armour/45 in the calculation, so even for leather armour you cannot completely remove the penalties. You may have been thinking of shields, as for normal races 5 Shields will eliminate penalties for a buckler. the details are in http://crawl....

Apologies for the delayed reply. Work (and a weekend away) got in the way of "life"... Thanks for the info about Abjuration. As requested, I'm posting the victory post. I have a tendency to leave the game running for hours on end -- and often overnight -- without playing it (if you're wond...

Re: CIP - DE Su/Ne XP27

Abjuration doesn't seem to have been very successful against me so far -- my dragons are only very seldom successfully dispelled. (Not so for my haunt progeny.) Just dropping by to say that abjuration *always* works (barring Trog protecting bros from it, I think) - it's not a "send away on suc...

Re: The 'Questions too small to need their own thread' threa

I recall reading somewhere that bringing my armour skill to 5 for leather armour completely removes any spellcasting penalties for said armour. Unfortunately, I can't find this anymore (i.e. not "armour" in either the wiki or the knowledge bot). Does anyone know the internals for armour sk...

Re: CIP - DE Su/Ne XP27

So I did as I said I would. I went to Gehenna and was about to kill Asmodeus when he teleported away. I couldn't be bothered to track him down, so I simply grabbed the rune and took off. Then I went to Pan again looking for my last 2 remaining runes. I eventually found them and killed their respecti...

Re: CIP - DE Su/Ne XP27

Thanks for the advice given. I really appreciate the time you have granted me. Thanks again. Yes, I was aware of those drawbacks to being in lichform but my impression is that the pros far outweigh the cons. I've put a fair amount of XP into invocations so my chanelling is now quite rapid; I frequen...

Re: CIP - DE Su/Ne XP27

No. But why on earth are you continously in lich-form? It has two main benefits: rN+++/rTorm for demons/mummies/etc. and hungerless casting. The former is situational, the latter is unimportant especially on a 27-spellcasting Deep Elf. You should really not use it continiously, but when tormentors ...

Re: CIP - DE Su/Ne XP27

Have you found an amulet of clarity yet? Wow. Thanks for scaring me. It worked really well. ;) Given that I've now completed zig:6 and that the floors are getting larger, is it even possible for, say, an orange statue to show up within LOS of my entrance to the zig floor? If so, the lack of clarity...

Re: CIP - DE Su/Ne XP27

If you are relying heavily on summons, don't forget that the dangerous Ziggurat levels (mummy and pan lord levels in particular) contain tons of monsters with Abjuration. Attempting to clear a whole Ziggurat with only Summon Dragon is highly risky. If you really want to win, better leave on level 1...

Re: CIP - DE Su/Ne XP27

Hi, I haven't played much, but here's a brief update nevertheless. I redid the crashed Pan level and killed that Pan Lord. The next Pan level was Cerebov's. I killed him -- or rather my summons killed him -- with relative ease and grabbed the rune. I returned to my stash to drop off my treasure (whi...

Re: CIP - DE Su/Ne XP27

You can get rF++ right now, so that's something (looks like Slime Pit run went fairly successfully). Also, how'd you do the Tomb before Pan? I'm curious to know 'cause the majority of Pan isn't that hard. Yeah, Slime Pit was actually a push over. I got a bit freaked out at some point and Haste-ned ...

Oh! Another quick question: can someone explain the Fighting HP bonus, please? I read the wiki and seem to understand that at Fighting:3 or 4, my HP bonus would max out. I mistakenly trained Fighting above 3 when at XP27 and my HP went up. What is the minimum Fighting skill required for the maximum ...

Thanks for the advice, slowcar and sir_laser. I thought my question was "too small to need it's own thread"; perhaps I'll post to CIP after Slime if I require more advice. Slime, here we come!

Re: file location migration?

I've experimented around a bit -- mostly by playing a few 'dummy' games to see where files get created. I think I've figured it out. For those interested, I did the the following: $ cd /path/to/backup/stone_soup-0.7.1-1-g7ce9b19/source/saves/ $ cp bones.* logfile scores /var/games/crawl $ cd /var/ga...
