Re: CIP: Formicid Figher of Okawaru

You have Animate Skeleton and haven't learned it yet.

Why?

(Hint: Okawaru doesn't put you on penance if your allies die anymore)

If I recall correctly, even in the older versions Oka only cared about intelligent allies, not about skeletons.

Re: CIP: Formicid Figher of Okawaru

First of all, you must equip a better weapon than a - 2 flail. Search (ctrl f) for dire flail or even better a great mace (if one has already spawned). That your highest priority right now.
After that, identify all your scrolls (read them), your potions (use identify) and your jewellery (you can try it and see if it auto id, otherwise use identify).
Drop all the scrolls which don't have use in combat, like enchant foo and recharging.
Using animate skeletons is a wonderful idea, because they help both in combat and to run away (especially as Fo)

Then you have to fix your training: stop training invo for all the game. Also disable dodging, you need decent armour skill before training dodging in plate armour. As you are with Oka, stop training armour at 22 (you don't need to train armour up that point at one time, you can stop it and resume later if you have more useful things to train at same point, like evocation)

If you die, considering you look quite newbie, I strongly suggest to try a better race (like Hill Orc or draconian or Minotaur or merfolk or whatever) because Formicid is one of the most difficult one in the game.
screw it I hate this character I'm gonna go melee Gastronok
