YASD - DrIe

Somehow i just cant keep casters alive :(. They seem so squishy compared to melee dudes. Any tips for next time?
I think i did a good job on training skills and had proper spells to not to die? Maybe Mak was not the best god, as i often ran out of mana.

Hereby my morgue as well. Any advice would be welcome :).

Re: YASD - DrIe

So stuff I see at a glance:

1. You didn't have a spellforged servitor out.
2. You were killing shock serpents with no rElec, and weren't using your absolute most-damaging spells. (Shock serpents with no rElec are REALLY dangerous, particularly if you're fragile)
3. You had to much dangerous stuff on screen (In snake you need to run away a lot and run away early, basically any time you see *anything* your first step needs to be backwards) It's far too easy to lull yourself into complacency with positioning, but anything you can see might be thrown at you with a guardian serpent cutting off your easy escape route (although evocable blink helps a little for escapes) a najinara (tough and nasty on it's own) and a mana viper (could plausibly shut down your offense) and a shock serpent (oozes lots of elec damage all over the place, but relatively fragile) each would be something to be careful about on their own, the cocktail of all 3 is nasty for this character (there's a lot of ways you could die to this combination of monsters)
4. You were under half hps, hadn't read a teleport scroll, and were still attacking. (I strongly suspect the most common type of death is the "I can kill it with just one more attack" fallacy :)
5. You were wearing a wizardy ring instead of a +5 ring of protection while not casting spells that required wizardry
6. You were fighting a shock serpent with no rElec and a potion of resistance in your inventory.
7. You were using BoM with low spellpower (Maybe in an attempt to peirce stuff?) you probably would've been better using OOD on stuff serially than BoM on several things one at a time (at least with OOD you would've killed something before it could attack you)
8. You had rF- in an area where fire attacks are fairly common.
9. You weren't using your regular shield, desipite having shields at ~7 and a ring of wizardry (Maybe you needed slightly more shields before switching? I usually wear regular shields at around 9 shield skill, I assumed the wizardry ring would be enough to overcome the lack of skill, maybe not?)
10. You were still training fighting and summoning (while simultaneously training conjuration and shields) 5% is plenty low enough for spellforged servitor, and at 13 fighting was your second-highest skill, which is nice for the hps, but you probably should've focused on shields or summonings until you reached the breakpoints you were looking for then turned them off, 15 conj was plenty for the short term (I mean OOD was at 2% with wizardry, what more could you be looking for there) Generally once you've achieved "I can cast this competently" you want to hit all your "minimums" before trying to tack on extra spellpower. Your skills weren't trained badly at all, but *at the point you died* you weren't as focused as you probably should've been.
11. You had animate skeleton, but didn't have a cloud of skeletons surrounding you (maybe they died already?)

Some of those are mild/questionable or didn't directly contribute to your death, but that's what I see at a quick glance. I bolded the bits that I think would have been the most directly applicable to not-dying at this particular juncture.
