YAVP - HEBe of Trog

I think this was my first character using long blades. For melee, I used an elec falchion for a long time, and Trog was reluctant to gift me a good endgame weapon (but finally he did). Also used longbows a lot, so I was pretty much a stereotypical elf.

In the Swamp, I almost killed myself by not paying attention, and then I found myself at low health facing a 13-headed hydra. Luckily, a fear scroll helped me out. Another tough moment was when an ancient lich got lucky with iron shots in Zot:5, but survived that one, too. In the endgame, an orb of fire thought my AC is too high (it was close to 50), so gave me horns (my helmet fell off) and deformed body.

First HE win, 7th win online, 22th overall.

Another funny thing: Swamp 4 had Nikola, Saint Roka, Jorgrun and Mara. Tough! As I had elec resist, I killed Nikola (he was in my way), but let the others be.

Re: YAVP - HEBe of Trog

Much gratses!

I have the same problem with long blades. They seem to be overall the hardest class of weapons to find end-game quality stuff for. I think I've seen exactly one claymore generated in the dungeon without Trog's help.

Return to YASD! YAVP! and characters in progress too
