Any particular reason you don't want to win with a felid? seems like a fine choice to me with how far you made it...it wouldn't be my first choice but you seemed to be doing well.

I've started up a troll healer; it seems pretty easy, but some quick questions/confirm these statements :) I want to use a large shield with shield skill 15.

Forgive me for asking the obvious, but you don't actually stab with needles, correct? You're switching to a blowgun, firing, and then switching back to a dagger before stabbing? Just making sure I'm not missing something.

I honestly feel like Trog's god gifts weaken him as a god choice in the long term.

But the repeated gifting just makes it very hard to break into 6 stars and beyond, which lowe...

This means that it is almost never good to use it for healing if you have some other source (in this case, you have a DD with 9 mp and 18 healing potions in its inventory).
