CIP: MuGl of Gozag: Getting started?

So I've decided I want to figure out how to play a mummy. I've been having a bit of trouble getting one to survive for long, though. This is the first that made it to Temple, owing largely to some early luck in finding a blowgun and some curare.

I went with Gladiator background, since it's one I'm most familiar with and it's pretty straightforward: bash things with a stick and throw a net if it looks dangerous. I hypothesized that the -2 aptitude was slowing down weapon skill enough that I was feeling weak by around floor 5ish, so this time I've mixed in some early Fighting. Thing is, I didn't feel that way with Demonspawn (with only -1 aptitude), but maybe that's because I would usually get some helpful mutations to offset the low weapon skill?

Any advice on how to skill to get a mummy started? If this is a bad choice of background, is there a better one to learn mummies?

Re: CIP: MuGl of Gozag: Getting started?

i think enchanter is quite ok. hexes apt is a little better than other mummy skills and confuse rly is a strong spell for a long time, also doesnt need much more xp than around 10 maybe to be useful on its own.
i just go longblades instead shortblades (cheapest wpn cat after staves) and you get shortblades extra thru crosstraining
dont bother about stealth at the beginning, you take enchanter just for that book. (tukimas is also decent and other spells)

i was able to do it like that at least, but with ash instead gozag

also in 0.18 it can be shitty if you get spider and no way to get clarity, so its nice to have something to deal with tarantelas before they get too close.

necro can ofc also be good or anything using summons. and yea i also trained fighting earlier than wpn cat (0vs-2) and used some branded dagger very early elec/psn w/e

Re: CIP: MuGl of Gozag: Getting started?

Enchanter is probably one of the worst mummy starts one could take. To kill stuff as EN you need to train stealth, hexes, short blades, with a bit of dodging/fighting- waaaaaay to much XP for bad apt mummies. Much better to just put that XP into weapon skill from the start.

Necromancer/ice elementalist work really well, but mummies are without dispute the worst species in the game. So dont sweat it if you dont get one of the ground; its really fucking hard to do.

Re: CIP: MuGl of Gozag: Getting started?

did you even read that?

im saying to train longblades and play as fighter, and just use confuse/tukimas to have an easier time in midgame. thats all doable in ring mail/fire armor with gozag equip probably.

but ofc if you start enchanter you have to play a stabber sure.

this is my mummy game did it like that. ofc there are lots of possibilities but for me personally a plain fighter without support would be harder on mummy i think.

Re: CIP: MuGl of Gozag: Getting started?

En is a terrible start because either you start as a stabber with terrible apt, or you start as a fighter with way too maney stat point in int, very little weapon skill, and and no fighting. Gl is good because you can start with the best weapon class, stat point that make sense for a fighter, and sensible skills. Ashe is also a terrible choice because she doesn't do shit early game. Yes, is you make it to lair on a character like that it is going to do well but your chance of making it are slim. Even MuGl can have a though time getting to lair but once you are there you don't really need the En starting book and you could find it anyway.

Re: CIP: MuGl of Gozag: Getting started?

Been making good progress, playing very carefully (a lot more carefully than I usually have to play) and abusing the hell out of the blowgun. The Lair entrance is really late though and D:11 has been dicey. Already burned a fear scroll and a fog/fear/teleport (damn unseen horrors...) Finally killed the unseen horror in a hallway with four wand of cold charges, firing blindly. Of course, I step to the left and a pack of killer bees arrives. :? I managed to lock myself in a room before they could catch me; maybe I can dig my way out the other side and sneak around? I might be able to kill them if I use potion petition, but I'd kinda like use my free petition for the yak pack and two trolls I saw hanging out near what is presumably the Lair stairs area, assuming I can't sneak past them into the Lair. Worst case I do still have 4 tele scrolls left, but I definitely don't want to burn my last fear if I can help it. Scrolls and wands feel extra precious, what with no potions and all.

On a side note, this game really seems to want me to branch into Summoning. Found two books with summoning spells and a staff of summoning to top it off. Have been hesitant to spread my skill points around too much, though, what with the terrible Mummy aptitudes. I'm thinking I might try getting some Summoning once my Staves is at 14, though I also really need some Armour/Dodging, which are also really slow. I did take some very brief detours to dip a few points into Armour/Dodging/Evocations, which feels worthwhile, since the first few points are so cheap.

As always, suggestions welcome.

Re: CIP: MuGl of Gozag: Getting started?

Looking good, but why oh why do you not use gozaqs best ability and call a shop! Go weapon/armour/jewellry/wand. Next time do it as soon as you hit 800$.

YASD: MuGl of Gozag: Getting started?

Did try calling a weapon shop per your suggestion, but no luck (is too bad, a good weapon would've really helped.) I did feel a bit stupid, as I cleared D:11, but no Lair entrance. Realized that I missed finding the entrance on D:9 because I had to run downstairs to D:10 after I read-id a scroll and wound up giving a frog inner flame. Lair was pretty nasty, though (early hydras and elephant packs) and ultimately I got killed fighting a hydra that I had no business fighting, even though I did have Might/Agility from potion petition. Read fear as a last ditch effort, but the hydra resisted and I died.

I do think I've got a bit of a sense now for how mummies play. Basically just really slowly, with extra care required around anything that has fire-based attacks. I actually wasn't feeling too bad by Lair:3, but I still should've been avoiding hydras. I'm just used to gladiators being able to take the weaker ones (3-5 heads) by that point.

Re: CIP: MuGl of Gozag: Getting started?

If you like melee characters go fighter i ussually do on mummies, I go 1 handed axes for damage and easy to find broad axe but most here will think thats pretty loose, finished a few and one is stuck doing zigs to get all the unrands for my museum.
Mufi imho tend to have 'easier ' earlygame, the shield helps imho.
Also go for an armour/jewellary shop first with Gozag if possible, you almost always get an equipment you're missing or upgrade, weaponshops are rather awkward since you tend to miss and training for another weapon is not an option.
Dont forget potion petition.
Anyway just my 2 cents.
Good luck and may gear of fire resistance drop for you every run!

Re: CIP: MuGl of Gozag: Getting started?

Axes are a bad idea for mummies, they of all weapon classes have the worst XP/damage ratio. Maces and long blades and staves are fine and should be preferred.

Re: CIP: MuGl of Gozag: Getting started?

I pretty much never call weapon shops with goazag because you if there is a good weapon in one it is probably of a type you haven't train, and very frequently there is a weapon that is great except that it's base type sucks. I find armour shops to be preferable as the first call because you have all of the aux slots to fill and at that point a good artifact body armour is very good even if it isn't dragon armour (+10 ring mail is amazing in lair even if you would rather have dragon armour later. Actually you could win the game in +10 ring mail, but you would rather have an awesome randart dragon amour...) Jewery isn't as good but is a good second choice if you don't get offered armour, especially if you haven't gotten rF yet. I hear gadget shops are great, but I would learn to getting some armour as the first shop as the first armour shop is normally a huge boost.

On a side note, I've discovered that running into Sigmund is even worse than usual as a mummy.

Re: CIP: MuGl of Gozag: Getting started?

I figured out what I was doing wrong; I previously didn't find a lajatang on the floor in Lair:1, right next to a brand weapon scroll that gave it (elec). Things die much faster now.

I took the advice to get an armour shop first and got a nice +2 chain mail with rF+.

A subsequent shop has an unidentified randart CPA for sale for 2040 gold. Think it's worth buying to see if it's any good? Not sure if CPA is even a good idea if I ever want to cast anything, but maybe casting is overrated?

Had a derp moment when I realized I'd trained 5 levels of Necromancy for Animate Dead, only to remember that there are no corpses. Might come in handy if I find some skeletons in vaults. Shouldn't be completely wasted XP, either, as I'm sure I'll want Regen eventually.

Re: CIP: MuGl of Gozag: Getting started?

Mummies cannot cast regen. Beware of hydras with the lajatang. The CPA has higher chance to be scrap than to be good, maybe see it as longterm goal if you decide to stick with Goz.

I find that casting stuff on mummies in armour is almost never worth the XP, but YMMV.

Re: CIP: MuGl of Gozag: Getting started?

Oh, good to know that regen isn't available. Necromancy skill probably is wasted, then, but at least it was only 5 levels with apt 0.

Re: CIP: MuGl of Gozag: Getting started?

Casting is overrated and incredebly xp intensive if you're going for cpa on a mummy ;)
I would probably use the money to built more shops instead, since un'id'ed randarts tend to be a big gamble.
Btw if you have a choice between 2 armour shop I'd prefer the non-antique one, having stuff id'ed tends to save money.

Also mummies can't cast regen ;)
That character is looking nice I'd train more armour and no magic skills for now.
Good luck!

Re: CIP: MuGl of Gozag: Getting started?

Managed to clear Spider. It actually wasn't too bad; only got Confused once, thanks to some investment in Throwing to kill off the tarantellas.

One thing I can say I like about mummies is that I don't feel pressed for inventory space. I can even ID decks and keep them around for a rainy day.

Re: CIP: MuGl of Gozag: Getting started?

Survived Shoals; it was tricky, but Shoals seems to always be tricky. On Shoals:4, I abused my ridiculous number of wands of fireball/fire to lay down covering steam clouds and spent a fair amount of time stair-dancing. The amulet of reflection also proved quite useful with all the javelins and nets being thrown at me. One nice thing is that now I have a bunch of javelins to use.

The suggestion to train some Dodging was a good one; I didn't realize I could actually get some EV points in plate armour; guess this is because of good Str and Dex?

At this point, the run is feeling more like a 'normal' run. I'm investing in Evocations now to take advantage of my newly-acquired evokables; will have to see how Depths goes, but right now I think this is a very winnable character. It's looking like I won't have much support magic in the end game, if any at all, which will be a first for me. From what I hear, though, Bribe Branch works really well in Zot, as long as I make it that far, so maybe that won't be a problem. Between that and Throwing, I think I'll be able to take most of the big nasties there. Will be nice to laugh at the death cobs, too.

Re: CIP: MuGl of Gozag: Getting started?

Its almost always worthwhile to train some dodging even in Cpa.
That character is looking great don't have much to add you might want to train a bit more dodging and armour around depths.
But that character should easily be able to get his 3 runes and win, just whatch out for the biggest killer of all: hubris :p
Edit: also you might want to do V1-4 first before depths it tends to be easier.

YASD: MuGl of Gozag: Getting started?

Died due to underestimating Jorgrun. He interrupted me while I was finishing off a player ghost, so I was already a bit low. I probably should've popped Tele when I saw him and ignored both him and the ghost. He did a lot more damage than I expected very quickly.

Overall was a decent run. Had a bit of luck on equipment, but I do feel like the mummy isn't too bad once it gets rolling; just takes a long time to get there. I think I'll give mummies a rest for a while though.

I feel like this is a pretty common reaction to dying to Jorg for the first time.

fwiw, I would've popped that ?blink and ran upstairs as soon as I saw Jorgrun if, like you, I was a mummy with no access to evocable flight. I'm pretty sure I would've then proceeded to do Elf and Crypt until I found flight.

Re: CIP: MuGl of Gozag: Getting started?

I actually had a ring of flight laying around on the floor somewhere. I'll have to remember to keep it around for situations like this in the future.

I probably should've done Crypt before Depths too, since Crypt probably would've been fairly easy as a mummy.

Overall was a decent run. Had a bit of luck on equipment, but I do feel like the mummy isn't too bad once it gets rolling; just takes a long time to get there. I think I'll give mummies a rest for a while though.


Nooooo!
The end of the message log seems you're witholding to throw javalins because of fire elemental don't! (Edit: you can use "f." to fire at a spot without the missile traveling further)
Also why not use potpet?!

Good luck on your next run ;)

Re: CIP: MuGl of Gozag: Getting started?

I had used potpet earlier to finish off the player ghost; had Haste, Might and Agility. But, yeah, the last few turns weren't great. I was thinking his main damage was LRD, so if I maneuvered and stayed away from the walls, he wouldn't hurt me too much, so I tried to maneuver to hit him with javelins without standing next to the wall. Turns out he didn't need to use the wall. Next time I'll try to be much more cautious when I see this guy.

Venom Mage should be fun. You can Meph Cloud and Toxically Radiate things all day with no ill-effects.

Re: CIP: MuGl of Gozag: Getting started?

I would recommend Ne start for Mu, you can easily branch into a hybrid if you want to melee by wearing light armor. Getting Troll Leather Armor helps a lot because it lets you run from things and heal quickly, what I typically do is go with Sif instead of Gozag, reason being that you just raise your Necromancy and get Invo to like 5 then 11 later, you can pretty much take almost anything into a corridor and spam Vampiric Draining on it and channel as needed to recover mana. Fighting is slightly worse than actual weapon skill but you really need the HP so I would just raise fighting and not worry about weapon skill until you get your starting book well established and if you find a dagger/whip with pain on it you can demolish everything for a while. Control Undead can handle player ghosts, you can either tell them to run away from you in an area you already cleared or make them fight stuff for you until they die.

Re: CIP: MuGl of Gozag: Getting started?

Since Gozag doesn't have a piety system or a decay at all, make sure you ABUSE the mummies lack of food-clock. Once you have Gozag, go back down to level 1 at a down stairs and pass time. Dual farm for both gold and xp's. Eventually you'll get out of depth monsters...take the stairs. Always leave yourself a fully cleared level between your currently unexplored level and your farming level. This allows you to flee up-stairs while you're exploring if needed. When you hit the Lair, Farm from the bottom up. Once level 8 is cleared (and you don't have any branch access that you will need) sit and farm at an 'up' stairs. Farm any branch that you never plan on going back into (got the rune, elf, crypt, orc-after-elf, etc)

Your time will suck, so will your score, but you'll have the money and xp's to maybe make it through.
For the easiest/best chance, be sure to save 9k or so for bribing zot 5, vault 5, the final 3k for a bribe on the orb run.

Honestly I wouldn't do that. OOD monsters can be very dangerous and the exp you get is pretty negligible. A mummy of gozag will also get strong enough to deal with pretty much anything the game can throw him pretty quickly once he reaches lair anyway.

TLDR;That is too much risk for the reward.

Re: CIP: MuGl of Gozag: Getting started?

Yeah, I wouldn't have the patience for that strategy. I feel like my last run was reasonably strong at the end; just died due to a stupid mistake, not due to the character being overly weak. To be fair, though, it'll probably be a while before I get handed another lajatang (elec) on a silver platter.

There are better brands than elec for a lajatang. Elec is pretty good, but speed, vamp, and arguable pain are all better. Of course there are a lot worse brands for a lajatang too...

My MuGl win switched to polearms after he found Wymbane :lol:

Really, there's almost no 'risk' in standing on the stairs to escape any too tough monsters. Also, it's not all about the xp's...you still get gold for rat corpses. Gold that is valuable to get the gear...or the heal effects...that you need. Not necessarily all that boring.
Make sure the level is fully cleared. Make sure you have a cleared level below you.
Travel to the 'best' down stairs you can find. The more open the space the better. Don't pick a spot with a blind corner (a too tough mob could get adjacent to you).

Re: CIP: MuGl of Gozag: Getting started?

I would be concerned that something like a fire dragon spawns and kills me at range. Also, BORING. Although I usually can't even complete a 3 rune game without getting bored with my character these days.
