YASD: Oklob Plant!

Stupid Oklob plant in my way and me derping lead to this one this time. I went down to D:10 and the Lair was there but Mr. Oklob plant decided it'd be fun to sit right infront of it and to make matters worse the entrance to the Lair was surrounded by grass. So, I decide to run back and try the Orcish mines. Much to my pain Grum and Gastronok decided to sit right on the entrance. To make matters worse as I ran away from Grum and his wardogs having lured them down.. a troll shows up and when I run away from him a shadow shows up and seals my fate. I burned a couple fear scrolls to get away from the wardogs since I still have no clue how to run away from mobs in this game. They're faster than me and they chase me down :'( I just can't run away. I burned a couple of teleport scrolls to get further away and rest but the troll discovered me and bam. I discoverd the wand was of enslavment AFTER I killed all the jellies too so that didn't help. :'( I had plans to buy a transparent swamp dragon hide armor for 980 gold or so in the shop, too. Thus the Orcish mines for the gold. Anyways here's the end result after getting some nice mutations that I kind of forgot to use but wouldn't have made much of a difference. Same with Heroism didn't use it.

Re: YASD: Oklob Plant!

lvl 10 is a bit early for orcish mines with a pure fighter i'd wager.
Remember that Crawl is a turn based game, mashing keys in panic is not going to help.
and a whip with -3 to damage, with a base of 6 that leaves 3, less than a dagger. i'd suggest not to take a weapon like this the next time.
If you see a (too) strong unique, go back the way you came if you can (up the stairs).

Re: YASD: Oklob Plant!

+ Heroism is worth using. +5 to all your skills, seeing as how you had no magic. Result: Faster attacks, no penalty from your shield.
+ You had spit poison too! I would have used that at every oppertunity since you've no thrown weapons there.
+ Personally, even with a Low INT, I would have victory danced scrolls and picked up spellcasting just to eventually grab Regen from that Necromancy book you got. And small mammals would be crap but a decent distraction I guess.
+ Also, that whip sucks even with a +2 to hit. It would have 3 base damage; and Freeze isn't going to help an awful lot.
+ Running away is not possible vs. fast things like dogs unless you have a similar speed buff (being a fast race, using Swiftness, having boots of running). Orc can be hell if you can't deal with big mobs; even stairdancing can be hazardous if lots of things are nearby.

Re: YASD: Oklob Plant!

To deal with war dogs as an MDFi, retreat into a corridor and hit Heroism. Level ten's a bit early but you can probably take them out with the help of potions etc. Also, use a better weapon, as mentioned above.

Getting an oklob on the Lair entrance is just a tremendous piece of bad luck. Dwarf up and try again!

Re: YASD: Oklob Plant!

Remember that Oklob plants don't shoot through regular plants. The inner ring of plants on the Oklob Lair entry is always regular plants, so you can usually approach in such a way that you have shelter from the Oklob plants.
