YAVP! GrBe. First Ascension!

I've played crawl for a couple years on and off, with streaks of frustrating deaths and my best runs usually snagging one rune before dying hideously. I finally ascended, even if it was with perhaps the easiest combo in the game. Now to try something actually dangerous.

I had a lot of close calls. RNG stepped in and saved my butt a couple times. Items were pretty middle of the road for the most part, the biggest boon being the ridiculous amount of Teleport Scrolls I picked up. They let me get away with some mistakes that would usually be punished harshly. I was surprised at how easy Zot 5 was. From what I heard I went in expecting to get slammed with several OoF and Lichs at a time, but I'd never see more than a couple OoFs and maybe a Vault Guardian. I never even saw a Lich summon something. I actually had much more trouble with Zot 1-4, particularly Zot 2 which was incredibly open.

Here's my Char Dump!

Re: YAVP! GrBe. First Ascension!

Congrats on the win! I don't know if you're looking for more tips or not, but some things I noticed:

Some of your equipment choices were probably not ideal: -2 GDA is pretty poor in terms of ac/ev provided. It could be marginally justified if you really had no other source of rF/rC/rPois, but you had 3 pips of rF and 2 of rC, and going down to 2/1 respectively would still be plenty of resistance. Each pip is worth less than the one before, because being resistant saves your life, but resisting slightly more after that is mostly overkill. Generally the only time you really benefit from 2 pips of something is rF against orbs of fire. Sometimes it's nice to have 2 pips of rC/rF for extended hells of that element, or high rN for torment, but that's extended.

So you could have higher ac and ev and keep the rPois with your +11 rpois plate. Also, the hat of pondering gives mostly caster benefits - int and mp, which a trog character can't use. It probably isn't worth being ponderous unless you're casting something, and even then a lot of players refuse to take the speed hit. Running away is a powerful ability :)

Orbs of fire are imho not one of the greatest designed mobs because they're so easily trivialized based on your fire/mutation resistance. With 3 pips of fire resistance you'd really have to try in order to die to an orb of fire, or even two. Of course if you fight it with something else that does non-fire damage like orb guardians or liches, then you'll be in more trouble.

Re: YAVP! GrBe. First Ascension!

Thank you for the tips! I was wearing the GDA because I was super afraid of OoFs (and it wasn't at -2 at that point. Yellow Draconians caused me trouble). The hat of pondering was for MR, but in hindsight I think I got a little carried away in terms of resistances. (Edit: I just realized that the wizard hat was slowing me down. I feel so dumb!)

Exactly how helpful is EV? Is it better to have say, 30 AC and 20 EV than 50 AC and 6 EV?

Re: YAVP! GrBe. First Ascension!

A good rule of thumb is simply that you want to have as high a total of AC + EV as possible, though this isn't accurate in all cases (e.g. 10/20 would be better than 0/35 - raising low values gives a greater return).
