[CiP] DDNe - bad items but still standing

Hi everybody,

my best DD so far, never had the chance to arrive to Vault with one of those derros. I think it's all because I'm abusing the Vile Clutch. Once removed my DD will start dying at L1 or even earlier :)
Beside a very good ring and a nice leather armour I had not much luck with the RNG, but I've tried to play at my best and with a staff of death and a venom battleaxe I'm trying to survive vault with some efforts.
Here it comes the dump:

As I said I'm in Vault and I have some survival issues. I've used a lot the heal ability and a bit of luck has drained me only a couple of MP. But I cannot proceed like this, I need a strategy.
Spells are not available so I'd love to transition to wearing the nice GDS I've found. But it seems that if I wear it I lost all my spell power. Indeed it seems that EVERY ARMOR I wear besides the leather makes skyrocket all my spell percentage.
Shall I keep the leather and maybe pump dodge? Am I training the wrong skills? What would you do in my place, enchant the venom/flaming battle axe or keep the scrolls waiting for a nice (maybe Vamp) good axe? Have I made a mistake to train axe shall I had trained staff to maximize the staff of death power?
Any suggestion - as always - is very welcome :)
Thank you all!

Re: [CiP] DDNe - bad items but still standing

"Bad items" says the character with 5 slaying, fully enchanted aux gear, and a staff of their best spell school before Vaults. :P

Absolutely enchant the flaming battleaxe. Waiting for a vampiric weapon to materialize is a sucker's game - that battleaxe is an end-game weapon and you should enchant it as high as possible, now. It's your highest skill, flaming is one of the best brands it can get, and executioner's axes are rare (and might not be worth the investment for a 3-rune game.)

You haven't lost that much MP - your max MP is 32. I picked a random DDNe log here: http://lazy-life.ddo.jp:8080/morgue-0.2 ... 060332.txt. That person ended with 15 max MP - that's certainly not unreasonable for a deep dwarf.

Your strength is pretty low for casting in any armor heavier than ring mail. That said, you have an end-game battleaxe that you're about to enchant and 20 levels in axes, and you're a Makhleb worshipper, you don't really NEED to be casting level 5 spells. If you're sticking in leather, I'd focus on dodging for now (over everything except maybe invo,) since more armour won't do you that much good.

Re: [CiP] DDNe - bad items but still standing

You said spells are not available but you already have some of the strongest spells in the game, mainly vampiric draining. That + Mak should keep you healed pretty well...Even after you're wearing GDS it'll probably still be fairly castable since it's only level 3; you might need to add a few more spell levels but you've got the healing. Moving a bit more physical with a flaming axe should help reduce how much damage you're taking as well. If clutch doesn't become too hard to cast you can always use that to split up groups/soften up enemies at range; you don't really need any higher spells than that. Clutch would probably require additional training though so consider training armor first (because it's immediately helpful with more ac/less EV penalty, and will later on make it easier to resume casting spells).

Re: [CiP] DDNe - bad items but still standing

thanks guys, sometime I realize that I need some sort of couching session from you guys :D :D :D
As always thanks a lot, I'll follow your advice, I feel more confident on heavy armour so I'll do whatever possibile to wear that GDS and be able to cast at least vamp touch.
(that said, its fairly usual for me to die horribly in the next 5 minutes from when I'll push the "submit" button).
