Finally found my first book shop on Orc (how do I show the contents of shops in a dump?), and subsequently realized that Sublimation of Blood has been sitting in my inventory for ages... Well, I haven't really needed it since I'm not particularly castery, yet. Picked up a fairly early ring of slaying, and I was rolling decently before that. I've only had a few close calls (a ghost, and orc-summoned red devil with an electrocution ego + my own ego and silliness). Temporal Distortion FTW.

There's a lajatang in a shop for cheap, should I pick it up and use it with Spectral Weapon? Does Song of Slaying work with UC and forms? In the book shop, I've got Hinderance 200g, Alchemy 750, Battle 400, Young Poisoner's Handbook 400, Control 650, Dragon 900, and Callings 300 (I'm getting Battle for now). I haven't used Alistair's + Ignite Poison in years; is it still good? Is the YPH worth getting for Ignite Poison? Are my skills alright? Is Step from Time like a bigger Temporal Distortion or does it offer other advantages?

(I'm planning to go Dragon Form because reasons)


Edit: Oh well. Berzerking emperor scorpions with ghost moths in tow are deadly. No mana for Chei ability. Should've gone back for another mana pot or gotten Sublimation of Blood to a higher level.

Re: CIP - DrTm Chei

You can find shop items in Madison.lst file (it's in the same folder where Madison.txt is). I would stay with UC (Blade hands is very good, especially with Chei) unless that lajatang has vampiric brand. Lajatang of speed cannot be used with Chei unfortunately. I would ignore all books for now and would train more UC and Invocations like you are doing.

Re: CIP - DrTm Chei

Cheibladehands is pretty much the strongest weapon in the game, so there's no reason to even consider using anything else.

Step from time is quite different from temporal distortion, because it can make large groups of enemies go away - but it is also not instant like temporal distortion is.

Re: CIP - DrTm Chei

In terms of damage output, yes - but unlike cheibladehands it also melds everything that isn't jewellery instead of just your gloves/shield. (And thus it's not really that much of a "weapon", is it now.)
of course this is less of a concern for a Dr

Vampiric top tier weapon is much better provided you are fighting living creatures. I am not talking about speedruns obviously where you prefer having higher chance to die in order to kill enemy faster.

Re: CIP - DrTm Chei

Killing most enemies in a single hit is much better than vamp with mediocre damage, simply because the fight will be over very, very fast.
And getting out of trouble with Chei is very, very easy.

Ending a fight very fast is not important (that's approach of speedrunners, I am not a speedrunner).
With vampiric weapon you get 0 damage, with any other brand you do get some damage.
I still remember a game when I killed dozens of monsters in Vaults 5 with DD who used vampiric axe (I got marked and felt comfortable to fight everyone in a place where only one monster could attack me so I didn't cancel the status).

Re: CIP - DrTm Chei

Things I've learned:
  • Alistair's is not the one-hit-wonderspell of elf-killing of my memories
  • Also, Elf is a bitch when you have actually be close to the elves to damage them
  • Ignite Poison IS the one-hit-wonderspell of Spider Nest
  • BH is really good, though a bit boring, but sometimes being a tiny spider who just cannot be hit is better
  • The wolf spider tile is still ugly

I think I'm gonna diversify into Air since I just found both books, Air and Sky, grabbing DF and Tloc when reasonable. Also, I found rCorr, so after I finish Swamp and Spider, I'm thinking about going jelly hunting, especially after that unwelcoming party on E:1, and the absence of Cloud spells (my preferred method of clearing Elf).

How bad is Asterion, the Mahkleb-worshiping minotaur? I killed Louise in two whacks with BH.

Re: YASD - DrTm Chei

Well, he can deal a lot of melee damage - especially if its weapon has good brand. Plus he likes to haste, and he can also deal some heavy undodgeable damage through his invocations. With a char like yours I'd say you have decent chance to kill him, but it would be a tough combat, easily lethal if he gets some good actions/rolls. In other words, I'd avoid to fight him, skipping the section of spider:1 where's wandering - except if it's like right next the entrance.

If you fight him, hitting his spectral weapon instead himself isn't a bad idea - it has worse defences than him, so despite dealing lower direct damage to him you may get more hits than attacking directly him, plus you would avoid to be hit twice by his attack
screw it I hate this character I'm gonna go melee Gastronok

Return to YASD! YAVP! and characters in progress too
