YAVP - MiTm of Trog (my last minotaur combo)

Originally I was open to playing this as a proper transmuter (unarmed, spells, whatnot), but an early poison whip and a D:2 Trog altar lured me off that path. I guess this was the first time ever I took Trog at an altar, but I may be wrong.

By the way, Trog. His gifts were appallingly useless the whole game. I got 20+ gifts, of those only 1 demon whip (flaming), 1 broad axe (vorpal), zero eveningstar. Some two-handed stuff (after I committed to shields) plus lots and lots of garbage (short swords, flails, scimitars et cetera). I don't know if this is part of the recent Trog nerf or just bad luck, but it was ugly. My weapon was a flaming broad axe that I bought in Orc.

The best find was the cloak of starlight in Lair:6, just randomly on the ground, not in a vault.

On the Orb run I met a Pan lord who was fast and had firestorm. I just hasted and fogged and left him be.

So with this I have done all the possible minotaurs, which is my third completion (first: all berserkers, second: all gnolls) ... 173728.txt
