[YASD] was [CiP] DrEE level 16, something unusual

UPDATE: I splatted in snake pit. I tought I was a tough lizard but truth hit me in the face like a truck. Second or third naga proved me that I've not understood how magic user works. RiP poor drakeling, you'll have forever a place in my rogue-like heart.

for me at least, seeing that I splat all my poor lizards at Lair/post lair.
I've been unlucky with spell book but Vehumet has been so kind to gift me with Iron Shot.
At the moment I'm kinda hybrid: I've branched in axes, fighting, dodging, the usual stuff and have my spells all under 10%.
But no more talks and here is the morgue:

I think that I should:
1) bring Axe to 18 in order to use broad axe at min delay and look for a good broad axe
2) raise Fighting/Dodging at higher level (maybe 15?)
3) and finally pump my Iron Shot, both in power and lowering the hunger (more Spellcasting).

Am I right? Do you suggest something different? Is there something I am not looking at?
Thanks for any help - as always :)

Re: [CiP] DrEE level 16, something unusual

I would enchant the hat and train Conj/Earth for Iron Shot. I don't like axes in your inventory, +1 war axe of draining is nothing special at XL 16. Axes crosstrain with Polearms and M&F, are there no better weapons, maybe 2-handed ones? Brandless buckler does not do much unless your shield slot is empty anyway or you have an amulet of reflection.

Edit. Oops, it's not brandless buckler. Still a 2h weapon can be a good option provided you have access to it.

Re: [CiP] DrEE level 16, something unusual

thanks as always for the reply Felid :)
Unfortunately it has been a very unlucky game so far with drops: no good weapon at all, nothing worth generated. Maybe I've missed something valid in orc, I'll do a search, but if nothing shows up I guess I'll go for the heavier 2h axe I have, hoping for a vorpal scroll.
I kept the protection buckler as I thought the +3 AC would be a good trade, but I guess you are right, better an higher damage output.
How much do you think shall I go with Conj/earth? I've read different times here on the forum that cast failure <10% is the aim when you are not fully committed to spellcasting and having only Iron Shot as a high level spell I tought that was my case.

Re: [CiP] DrEE level 16, something unusual

+3 ac from buckler is quite good for casters/hybrids but I took a look at your actions table and found that you melee much more often than cast spells. Of course for primarily melee characters a +3 AC buckler is a bad idea unless there is a nice 1h weapon which you don't have unfortunately.

Re: [CiP] DrEE level 16, something unusual

why are you so desperate to train a weapon on a caster^vehumet? is there anything right now that your current spells can't handle? i would train some evocations and then probably more magic with this character.

Re: [CiP] DrEE level 16, something unusual

I was looking for a weapon cause so far I've had only iron shot as a high level spell and rule n.1 I've learned with DCSS is that you should train skills that are good with the things you have now and not skill good for what you can have in an hypotetical future. But I guess you're not wrong, I'm underestimating Iron Shot and the fact that I can win a 3 rune game with it. Thanks for your help :)

Re: [YASD] was [CiP] DrEE level 16, something unusual

Second or third naga proved me that I've not understood how magic user works.


Personally, I've found that DEFE^Veh or Sif is easier in terms of learning how to play a blaster mage. I kept splatting Dr long after I'd got the hang of playing elves, because:

1. The uncertain color at level 7 means it's chancy to pick an elementalist start. DrFE and your scales turn white, bad luck. Cj is IMHO a much harder start than something like FE for a blaster, pure conjurations on their own don't do enough damage for Lair+ without something else to seal the deal, either an element or melee. It used to be ok when we still had battlesphere but now it's way harder.
2. DE just have a ton of MP to keep using your spells as your primary damager. Also they have crazy magic aptitudes that keep you above the difficulty curve. E.g, DEFE can be fireballing by Lair quite reliably regardless of god.
3. DE are frail. This is terrible for win rate but a good thing for learning. If anything can splat you, then you're paranoid all the time. That's a good way to play a caster. You're always ensuring distance, checking your retreat routes, knowing the speed of your enemies, and thinking about the noise of each spell.

Re: [YASD] was [CiP] DrEE level 16, something unusual

thanks for the hints.
I love Draconians but I guess I'm not yet ready to play them (maybe I'll never will, if I remember correcly I play DCSS since 0.6...).
I've lost a game while trying to 15 runes with DEFE, and he was a powerhouse, I was spamming firestorm so much that I got annoyed and lost to boredom :)
Now I'm in love with new Gnoll <3

Re: [YASD] was [CiP] DrEE level 16, something unusual

it's just DEFE (and a lucky game): I was able to cast fire storm pretty soon and everything melt down (besides OOF: I remembered I switched from Vehumet to Zin in order to cleanse all the malmutation I got from them :-)).
As you can see from all my posts here, I suck so bad with any other combination :-)

Re: [YASD] was [CiP] DrEE level 16, something unusual

Firestorm includes irresistable damage, so you can nuke OOFs with it too. I like to soften them up and then hit them with iron shot or OOD for the easy kill.

Re: [YASD] was [CiP] DrEE level 16, something unusual

yes I read this at the time. I guess it was the fire wheel you see wandering in the fire when you cast firestorm.
Fact is that it took me a lot of time to kill the OOF and they malmutated me so bad :(

Return to YASD! YAVP! and characters in progress too
