[CIP] TeGl of Dithmenos

Best char so far, I cleared Lair and I'am currently wondering if I try Swamp, Spider, Slimes or if I carry down the main Dungeon.


Any insights, suggestions are welcome !!

Re: [CIP] TeGl of Dithmenos

If you're trying to win a 3 rune game, the overall build you posted has strange priorities imo.

1) You have "Firestarter" as the main weapon, but are training Stealth and have it at almost 10.
2) You have low Int, but have multiple spells in memory which have few skills in common.
3) You have high Str, but are wearing a fairly "meh" armour randart.
4) You have a ring of MR+, but you are not wearing it. Why not?

At any rate, I would focus on developing that bird as a straightforward bruiser. Stop training Stealth and magic schools; they don't do you any good now, and investing a lot of XP into them will give very small benefits. The one magic school I would train would be Translocations until you have Blink under 10%. Train up Armour, try and move up to medium dragon scales. Ice, quicksilver, storm, maybe you'll get lucky and find pearl. More Fighting and M&F, definitely. Please wear the MR+ ring instead of rN+.

For the dungeon progression: make your way down the dungeon until you find the entrance to O:, and clear the mines. You should have a solid amount of gold and at least some decent items to spend it on. Clear the Dungeon to D:15, or best effort until you get driven back. Once that is done, post your updated chardump. Hope this helps, and good luck!
There is always something new to learn.

Re: [CIP] TeGl of Dithmenos

Sorcerous mentioned the most important stuff.
To add to that, I'd recommend picking one of maces or bows and committing to it. Then train the relevant skill up to 14 whilst training nothing else. (Use a skill target.) After that resume teaching defensive and miscellanies skills, but keep the weapon skill focused until you reach mindelay.
I actually like stealth, and would recommend Shadow dragon scales of you find them. The other armours sorcerous mentioned would also be good.
