Re: YASD: DsSk of Kiku

Screw tabbing, at least with default autofight_stop value. Deaths due to reckless tabbing happen so often, it's not even funny.

Re: MiBe: Distortion or Anti-magic

That's probably obvious, but don't forget about evocable Blink on the glaive. +Blink all alone is a reason to carry any weapon (except distortion/vampiric) around as a berserker. And you've got that sweet ring of cTele as well.

YAVP NaFi: unintentional ninja (not rly) with no consumables

Well, it's just another easy character i started in between much thorough runs. Pretty much your standard MiFi of Oka->TSO expect it's a naga. But, thanks to RNG, this run turned to be a bit more interesting than i expected. — My first objective was to obtain a demon trident, and i met it with the h...

They keep yellow draconians for the great mission of being a source of annoyance in Zot. The question is: why do yellow ones need to be so boring and underpowered as player characters?

Hmm, you probably have some alternate weapon to use while you build up TSO piety, then you can convert that demon trident into a trishula. You have evocable invis so that should help out with Trog ambushes (though Naga Warriors will still see you of course). TSO prevents turning invisible even for ...

WARNING : by "speedrun" i imply beating the game in the least turns possible, not tabbing it in an hour. This run started as an attempt to dive to D:4—5 and gain easy XP by abusing curare on something like ogres. Eventually, it turned out that i'm very uncomfortable with running from ever...

Re: CIP - DEFE with staff of Wucad Mu

Vehumet and Sif are stable options for a DEFE, providing needed conjurations via gifts and guaranteed ways of restoring mana, with Ash and a Wucad Mu staff, on the other hand, you're risking not getting needed spells in time and being screwed by channeling failures. So, if, as you said, you really w...

This is untrue. The timer only ticks down while the stat is at zero or below.

Don't bother with that anti-magic demon blade, it will leave you with 15 mana which is not even enough for 2 tornadoes.
