YASD - dreaming of 15 runes

After a few false starts, I finally got this SpEn going. I picked up the easier runes at Swamp, Shoals, and Vaults, went down to Zot and cleared the Orb room, and decided to try my hand at 15 runes.
First stop, cleared the Vestibule of Hell, easy.
Next, Slime. Cleared down to the bottom without much difficulty, managed to kill Royal Jelly in one stab 8-)
Gehenna next. Managed to get Asmodeus down to "almost dead" but he teleported away, so I just picked up his rune and left.
Cocytus. This did not go well. Got tormented a few times, and had to spend many turns healing. Finally found Antaeus, and after a few rounds, I should have realised I'm not doing enough damange to cut him down quick enough. But somehow I stubbornly refused to leave the fight. And the rest is history... :cry:

Re: YASD - dreaming of 15 runes

Ouch. That stinks.

Looking at your build, I don't really see a problem- you didn't fall into the trap where your SpEn becomes so specialized for stabbing they can't kill the things they can't. You had good skills, nice buffs, and good resists!

One thing I might have done different is change gods. Oka isn't of much utility by the post-endgame- you've already got al the gifts you need, your skills are probably more than good enough without heroism, and you can replace finesse with haste proper- especially as an enchanter. Nemelex provides a ton of escape options, panic buttons, and summons, or TSO gives you Holy wrath, massive damage from cleansing flame, 'A' summons, and free healing for killing demons. Sure, wrath stinks, but it's manageable.

Controlled blink is awesome, if you can find a book with it. You had the slots, and spriggans train Tloc very fast, making it actually usable.

Did you stack dex? Your int seems kinda low for the endgame. You'd be better served with int, for sure.

Final bit of advice: Antaeus can be poisoned. Coc:7 gets much easier with that. ;)

Re: YASD - dreaming of 15 runes

Thanks for the tips. I guess I was getting too used to be able to melee everything to death, and got a bit careless about looking at my HP. Though most of Antaeus' strikes missed, those that did hit took a LOT of HP.

I'm still a newbie at switching Gods... got to research a bit on how to handle the wrath issue :)

Re: YASD - dreaming of 15 runes

Steel sling bullets should take Antaeus down, if you're careful enough :)

Return to YASD! YAVP! and characters in progress too
