Re: DDGl Late Game Weapon Choice?

You can swap weapons when you really need like when fighting orbs of fire.

Seriously, DD of Makhleb with vampiric execuioner's axe is the most broken combo in the whole game.

A single cast of Invisibility cannot give yellow contamination so it is never suicidal unless player made a mistake (like casted the spell while having some contamination or together with haste)

Re: [CiP] HECj of Dith just starting Lair

Dagger has the lowest base damage in the game, it is very bad without electro/distortion/venom.
As High Elf I usually go for Long Blades, it crosstrains with Short Blade also.
Don't train staves for staff of wizardry, it is awful weapon.
