So this is by far one of the best characters I've ever had, and I'm starting to get nervous. I've never won a game and I'm starting to think this could be the one... but I don't want to mess it up. Some of the questions I have:

Branches: I cleared to Vaults:4 without even breaking a sweat. After hitting the trove I now have amulets for RMut and RCorr - do I use those and try for the slimy rune or go for the silver rune instead?

Equipment:
I've been rolling with the war axe up until now because vamp seems to be helping keep my health at truly obscene levels. I'm fighting hydras with it and doing fine (thanks Ru). But that +3 exec axe looks mighty tempting, and I could enchant it up quite a bit... is it worth the switch?

On the armor front, will the Rneg on the plate armor help keep me from draining myself with apocalypse? Because if so I'm almost certain to switch...

Any advice on skills/leveling? I'm in your hands!

Re: CiP: MiFi of Ru - help me not crash and burn

I usually do Depths before V:5 or Slime. Depths is no joke, but neither are V:5 and Slime:6.

That exec axe is going to do much more damage than the war axe. You'll probably want to change the brand on it at some point, but even as-is, it'll outperform your war axe by a huge margin. You do have to be careful with losing the vamp, but you don't want to rely on vamp too much anyway, since there are times where it won't work (against undead, for instance.)

Use your Enchant Armour scrolls at least on your boots of running and possibly on your plate.

I'm pretty sure the Draining from Ru bypasses any sort of resistance.

Best of luck; you're plenty strong enough to win the game with this guy; just be careful and watch out for hubris. Oh, and you might want to get rF+ if you can swing it; there are a lot more elemental damage sources when you get into Depths and beyond.

Re: CiP: MiFi of Ru - help me not crash and burn

By the way, Axes and shield are generaly not a good combo because axes have some of the weakest 1h options An early vamp war axe is fine, but you probably want to change later and that will cost you your shield, so it probably isn't worth investing in more than a buckler+axe unless you get a truly amazing broad axe randart.

Re: CiP: MiFi of Ru - help me not crash and burn

I've won with a regular vamp broad axe (VSFi, MiAK) and elec broad axe (DDAs), so imo they are quite sufficient. On the other hand, this character in question does not have a broad axe, has only a +0 large shield, and has an executioner's axe available. I would make the switch. Pity the exp spent on Shields...

Re: CiP: MiFi of Ru - help me not crash and burn

Thanks for the tips all! Hubris and ignorance are probably my two biggest killers, so I appreciate the advice.

I was hoping for a better shield/axe combo, but oh well - I'll ditch the shield and go forward, and think harder about that time :)
