Re: YASD: SpAs^Trog checking for monster short blades

This is not directly relevant, but in trunk, the brand of a weapon carried by a monster (but not on the ground) is identified on sight. I also hate distortion with a passion, but wielding a distortion brand is generally in the "stuff happens" category. It can be annoying, but distortion is...

Re: CiP: DgTm Suggestions on what to do next?

Using the above numbers, one can do a rough thought experiment: a) Picking Str over Dex: use the AvEffDam for player (offence) from "Chei" stats and for monster (defence) from "normal" stats. Statue form: 101/5.1 = 19.8. Blade Hands: 123/8.6 = 14.3 b) Picking Dex over Str: use Av...

Re: Changes to make Crawl harder

How about removing Necromutation, or a major nerf? The fashionable trend of thought is that Necromutation is actually terrible, so I don't think it's going to get nerfed any time soon. Really? I basically always get it on caster types and spam channelling after every fight. Makes Pan/Hell/Tomb much...

Re: Changes to make Crawl harder

And now for something completely different:

How about removing Necromutation, or a major nerf? Immunity to torment + no spell (or channelling) hunger seems overpowered to me. Makes Tomb and a lot of Hell very easy, not to mention Ziggurats.

Re: CIP: DEFE^Sif Muna, Entering Vault 5 (or Abyss)

There is plenty of danger too, but when one keeps wandering on and on and on without finding the rune, the tediousness starts to outweigh the danger.

I do like the Abyss in theory. All those cool monsters etc. In practice, not so much.

Re: CIP: DEFE^Sif Muna, Entering Vault 5 (or Abyss)

Abyss can be tedious, but your stealth would work well there. With rMut, you wouldn't get much, if any, mutations. A cure mutation potion cures roughly 3-5 mutation in a go. But often I wander for hundreds/thousands of turns without finding the rune. Vaults:5 is much more satisfying to me. I general...

Re: CIP: DEFE^Sif Muna, Entering Vault 5 (or Abyss)

I usually do one of two things in Vaults:5. Haste and agility etc., go down and read magic mapping. 1) Stair dance. If vault warden comes along and I can't kill him quickly, controlled teleport to edge of map, wait a bit / kill a few, then controlled teleport back to stairs (runic seals fade away af...

Re: CiP: DgTm Suggestions on what to do next?

Thanks for the numbers. I have never used fsim, so it was interesting to see them. To your point about str vs dex. Recall that in trunk, Dg get 2 stats every third level. Finally, it was +4 to int, +2 to dex and +12 to str in my case. So the damage number should be much closer to the second case. As...

Re: NaDK in a bit of trouble . . .

With rF++, fire bolt wouldn't hurt that much. I would go for heal wounds.

Re: CiP: DgTm Suggestions on what to do next?

Ok, Tomb was indeed not too problematic with statue form. (By the way, the entrance to Tomb:3 now is even more ridiculously crowded than before, now that there are anubis guards, scarabs and bennus in addition to the mummies). Stair dancing there seemed endless, but finally it ended. Strangely enoug...

Re: CiP: DgTm Suggestions on what to do next?

Ok, I did (half of) Tomb:1 and up to Zig:12, then was forced to escape, still basically the same situation. I did get 2 acquirement scrolls though. But I still have about 5-6 jewellery unidentified, so the odds of getting rMut are not too great. Wasn't too impressed with jewellery acquirements in th...

Re: CiP: DgTm Suggestions on what to do next?

Thanks for the comments. a) For the stuff I am training: UC, Fighting and Dodging are already at very high levels, so while focusing those, I just expanded into a few more skills. Not sure what else to train. Spellcasting is to reduce hunger, transmutations to increase spell power for hydra form, an...

Re: CiP: DgTm Suggestions on what to do next?

To clarify a bit, I have no issues with resistances to fire, cold, neg, pois, MR etc. I have rings/armour to handle all those. The shout mutation is also not a problem: I have a couple cure mut pots. I just haven't bothered to cure it yet. I am pretty sure I can do Zot:5 and win: dragon form kills O...
