Re: Trove reporting

My trove required a +6 demon trident in order to enter. That was basically free for me, because one had happened to spawn (a +6 demon trident of flaming) in the Shoals, and as a DSBe going flails, the weapon was already useless to me. Within the trove itself I had:

+3 pair of gloves of Defiance (rElec rC++ MP+9)
+8 large shield of the Furies (RElec rF+ MR+ SINV Stlth-)
+2 fire dragon armour
+0 shadow dragon armour
+1 robe of MR+
lamp of fire
two rings of sINV
10 poisoned arrows
11 sling bullets of flame
3 potions of agility
286 gold pieces

The gloves and the shield were both items that I started using right away. Either armour might have been a nice trade (especially because I got rC+/icemail as part of my mutations) although I've been very happy wearing the Orange Crystal Plate Armour that I picked up on Lair 5, and am happy walking around with 66 AC. Everything else is more or less useless.

One of the more galling things that happened is that I had bought out all of the unidentified rings that were available in shops in the hope of not getting them within the trove itself. One of those was a ring of See Invisible. As you can see, that didn't stop me from receiving two more rings. And it's not like I had anything else to spend my money on. For a mostly free trove, I suppose this was a win.

Re: Trove reporting

entry fee: +5 demon trident.

armor trove for a grbe as result:

  Code:
+2 leather armour of poison resistance
+10 plate armour "Ygaat" (rc-, mr+, rcorr, Int+2)
+1 Shoes "Shuu" (Contam, mr+, Sinv)
+2 boots "Cheofeovva" (Int+2, Dex-2, Slay+3)
-5 Buckler "Joliy"(-Cast, Fly, Dex+4, SInv)
-1 Boots of Blue Skies (relec, rpois, Str-3, Int+6)
+3 scale mail of magic resistance
+1 helmet of see invisible
+0 boots of stealth
+1 ring mail of fire resistance
+1 ring mail of magic resistance
-2 cloak of Pantheism (mr+, mp+9, str-3, int+5, dex -3)
+2 cloak of poison resistance
+2 crystal plate armour
+2 robe of the archmagi
-2 scale mail of the realm of zot (Dex+4, Slay+2)


haven't opened a trove for ages so I can't say if that's average or not, not much useful in there for me. I'll probably wear that plate until I find something better. The slaying-boots are nice, though.

I can't decide whether to say:
-Shoes "Shuu" should be a fixedart! What a delightfully understated name!
-Shoes are just boots with a confusing name and should be remove like spiked helmets and gauntlets.
-Randarts should be able to have re-named base types, like capes for cloaks or skins for robes or shoes for boots.

I had to give up a +5 demon whip. I had +2 stashed and no need for enchant weapon scrolls.
Got:
-the Longbow 'Piercer' (penet, EV-2)
-209 gold
-348 gold
-2 potions of magic
-plain deck of cards
-another potion of magic
-amulet of stasis
-randart amulet (stasis, RF)
-ring of invisibility
-+0 chain mail of poison resistance
-scroll of enchant weapon
-phantom mirror
-scroll of identify
- great sword of electrocution +2
Pretty meh so far, but there was also
10 stones!
Ain't the trove supposed to be this hideyhole for interdimensional spellcasting super thieves? Seems paranoid to stash your precious stones there.... :D

Re: Trove reporting

That's still a deal; troves use acquirement code for producing items. Of course, you have to wait till two drop, which means having no advantage between the drops.

No.

No they very much do not.

The only situation I'd consider a Trove for two acquirement scrolls is if I got a stack of two together, and I didn't have anything to lose so much, that all my slots are taken care of, wands I want, etc

Even if you did want to gamble on it, don't hold on to an acquirement hoping a second one shows up. It's not terribly likely that it's coming any time soon, and that acquirement could be something you could use now.

Re: Trove reporting

This far into the game I'm much more likely to get the /Haste that I want from the scroll directly than finding one in a trove.

Not necessarily, in lieu of other options. I had a melee character find a +6 slaying ring and didn't even consider wearing it. Dropped it and moved on, it wouldn't help me compared to resist rings.

Re: Trove reporting

I think actually the worst thing you can do in Crawl these days is to enter a piety trove while at 5 stars with Ru... but yes leaving a +6 slaying ring on the ground, as a melee character, is right up there in the running..

Re: Trove reporting

because taking a couple HP more every time you strike something is more valuable than, say, halving elemental damage to yourself?

Re: Trove reporting

Because most of attacks haven't elemental components, but are just physical. And when facing the few real threatening elementals ones (or when some stupid monster with meh attack dices manages to roll high enough) it's extremely unlikely to face more than one kind at time - and when you're facing two or more at same time it's mostly for bad playing.
So going around with rf+, rfc+,rpois+,rfuck together won't help your char 99% of time as much as +1 slay (or +1 ac). Just having one rf+,rc+ and eventually relec, rpois, rn+,rwhatever in the inventory ready to swap to counter the appropriate enemy is more than enough, it's not like behind every corner there are orbs of fire, ice and death to wait you.

Re: Trove reporting

  Code:
D:15 Trove requesting for +4 StormDA


Not a big deal (except I was with Gozag so enter it with 14 runes), nothing expected, nothing useful for the character generated. May be useful for a caster though.

  Code:
 g - a +0 crystal plate armour
 i - the +1 hat of the First Snow {rN+ Int+3}
 j - the -3 pair of boots of the Thirteen Songs {Str+4 SInv Stlth+}
 k - the +3 chain mail of the Fisher {MR+ Int+2 Dex+7 Slay-4}
 p - the cursed +1 chain mail of the Devil's Advocate {-Cast rPois Str+2 Int+3}
 s - a +2 steam dragon armour
 y - a +2 hat of intelligence


as much as +1 slay (or +1 ac)

For the sake of offtopic I would prefer rF+ to the +1 ac on a 46 ac / 40 ev character, or low defences caster every day.

Re: Trove reporting

My character needed one ring slot for MR. I am not risking an A-lich coming into view and paralyzing me for +3 slaying. The other ring slot was taken up by sInv which I consider mandatory for zot, especially as I had guardian spirit so the ghost moths could do the equivalent of dealing ~60 damage to may character as well as take away my spellcasting.

Depending on my current weapon situation, I might take a ring of +6 AC over +6 slaying.

I could agree on MR...but sInv? Seriosly? Mandatory? Especially to be kept always up? This is even worse than saying rc+ or rn+ or anything I can think of.
Do you know that a well developed zot char can tank their puny hits and lure them back in any place where there isn't anything actually dangerous and kill them with I dunno just farting? That you can swap rings in a turn if you really need to see where it is? That you can get invisible if you really really need to save those mp because something else actually dangerous is in LOS (for something useful because lolwut are you afraid of losing mp against a single moth in zot?)

And the list could go on, but the single concept is that ghost moth are easily dealt with even without sInv and if you really need to sInv them for whatever reason you can do that in one turn.
