Re: CIP SpCj of Vehumet XL22

I guess the only reason I thought of getting conjure ball lightning is because it would give me a way to deal non-fire damage as AoE, but I don't know if that's actually helpful... of course it would require me to unlearn some spells to make up for it.

Re: I think we learned an important lesson today.

Giving undead complete poison immunity really changes things for venom mages. Before, I could easily get through the early game with only venom bolt, now that's no longer possible. I suggest you use your wands actively against undead, and when you get the book of Conjurations (the first book from Ve...

Re: I think we learned an important lesson today.

As of 0.11 my poison spells no longer word on undead, or at least not on the ones I care about like necrophages and tough zombies (eg zombie hill giants). When I try to cast a poison spell when there are only undead targets around the game tells me there are no viable targets. I tried several times ...

Re: Is summoning a good complement to a SpVM of Vehumet?

Summoning is far from necessary until the late game (Hell, Pand, Tomb). Poison Arrow, OOD, Freezing Cloud and utility spells like flight, dispel missiles, and haste should allow you to do a 3 rune run. The only summoning spell you should consider for the early game is Animate Dead...

YAVP Captain Pants SpVM 15 Runes

Captain Pants is my first 15 rune char. He killed every unique monster he faced and fully explored every area except for Hell (obviously), ziggurat 11 (see why below) and a few pandemonium levels that had a few too many pit fiends. There were three moments in the crawl when I was very near death. Th...

Do portals out of Pandemonium spawn far away from the portal from which you entered that level? Is there any sort of message or clue that tells you that there's an exit on the current Pan level? If the answers to the above questions are both "no" as I suspect is the case, what strategies t...

Re: YASD 27 SpVM Death in Dis (webtiles)

I find that the wiki is accurate for the most part, but sometimes it simply misses information. For example, for the Vestibule it suggest high AC and EV in order to handle yaktaurs. So, I promptly removed my rN items and replaced them with items that boosted my defenses. Naturally when I descended t...

Re: YASD!!!!

Merged slime are incredibly dangerous, they are easily able to hit for over 50 damage against armored opponents and over 80 damage on low AC characters. There are two strategies for beating them: Pull off one at a time, this is ideal. If strategy one fails and you are a melee character, DO NOT back ...

Re: Is Dispel Undead necessary?

Completely non-essential for almost all characters. It's a very nice bonus if you're planning to use some of the higher-level necromancy spells anyway, like Revivification or Death's Door, but if you're not really using anything higher than Regeneration you can just hit undead monsters one extra ti...

Is Dispel Undead necessary?

I usually play SpVM and Dispel undead is a great spell, however it is highly specialized. My general strategy has been training Necromancy to learn Dispel Undead in order to clear the Crypt, however in order in order for DU to be any use I need to raise Necromancy at least to level 15. That is a lot...

Re: CIP SpVM 11

Prepare for a tale. I cleared out the Crypts with some difficulty. Even with Dispel Undead it usually took 2-3 spells to kill the skeletal warriors! Not to the mention the bone dragons, which usually take 75% of my MP to kill. I had to fight Khufu and his mummies and he hit hard, had to use a scroll...

Well it's official, this is by far my best character yet. I have cleared out the main dungeon, Swamp, Shoals, Elven Halls and Vault down to 7. I've never beaten the game before, so I was thinking of doing a 3 rune run unless you suggest otherwise. So all that's left is Crypt and Vault 8 (in that ord...

Thanks for the great replies, I really appreciate all the help I can get!

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

What is the difference between stones and sling bullets in terms of damage with slings? So far the only difference I found is that stones are always +0 while sling bullets can be magical. I have been thinking about collecting a bunch of stones, since they are so common, and enchanting them.
