Hi all,

I want to try for my first 15 rune win, and I've gone with a HOGl^Makhleb. Just cleared Elf and I've got V5 and Depths ahead of me, but thinking about the long game now.

Any general advice on equipment and skilling is appreciated. I've grabbed a couple of Hell runes before but I'm largely naive about extended. After maxing my combat skills I assume I'm supposed to branch into magic but not sure what my expectations should be regarding what schools and spells are viable and to what level.

I have some specific questions too:

[*] I've skilled for Axes but I just found +7 great mace "Ginuv" {vamp, Str+8 Int-3}. Is this good? It doesn't cleave but it wouldn't take much to get it to mindelay.
[*] Acquired orange crystal plate. Is this a legit endgame armour and if so should I build around it in some way?
[*] Any opinion on the cursed necklace of Bloodlust {*Rage +Rage MR++ Int-3 Slay+6 *Curse}?

Many thanks.

Edit: I've also just found the +10 dark maul {crush}, and doing a Tavern search brings up quotes like "best melee randart in the game". The arbalest "Damnation" is also available.

Re: HOGl wants 15 runes - Equipment/Skilling advice please

Orange crystal plate is awesome, it's a +8 crystal plate (which is top tier, well above what you strictly speaking need to win a 15 rune game) and has clarity, archmagi (which is a straight up bonus to spellpower) and no drawbacks. The things you'd do to "build for it" are the same things you want to do anyway.

Bloodlust necklace is extremely good, it's only drawbacks (random berserk and -3 int) are exactly cancelled out by the OCP, so that's a straight up win in this case.

For spells, look for stuff that support your already-good weapon skills and equipment, defense spells, anything that helps you better control and engage in combat is good.

A +7 vampiric great mace is pretty darn good, but it can't be enchanted further and requires some skill investment, and doesn't get the benefit of it's brand against most extended critters (they're mostly demons and undead) A +2 elec battleaxe is actually better damage-wise (by a small margin) but doesn't get the benefit of vampiric where available (and obviously cleaves) I'd stick with that and enchant it. Keep an eye out for some other battle or executioner axes (freezing would be a nice compliment to elec, not much resists elec, but the overlap of both "resists elec" and "resists cold" is very very small) If you have unused enchant weapon scrolls, burn them on that battleaxe, it's a perfectly serviceable endgame weapon.

The dark maul is kind of weird, it's like a ton of damage, but super duper slow, even if you have maxed mace and flail it's only kinda worth it, I wouldn't train up to use it, given you have a decent weapon in the skill you are already trained for.

Damnation is another story, It does very good irresistable damage at range, it's way worthwhile to get a ranged weapon online and that's a seriously good option.

Re: HOGl wants 15 runes - Equipment/Skilling advice please

Yeah, the amount of stuff that resists Damnation is very, very small and even then it's still a +6 arbalest. Your gear is good enough that I would 100% splat in some stupid way with it.

Spells-wise, you'll probably enjoy some low-level, super useful spells: Apportation, Butterfiles, Blink, Animate Skeleton. Portal Projectile with Damnation would be pretty amazing, I'd think. Maybe Regeneration at some point but I'd get some serious crossbows before going that way.

Re: HOGl wants 15 runes - Equipment/Skilling advice please

Thanks for the good advice. Enchanted elec battleaxe up to +9 and started training Crossbows. Then obviously had to immediately blow it by getting overconfident and letting a pack of draconians surround me on Zot 2. :roll:

That's exactly what I would have done!

The one downside to Damnation is that it's pretty loud, so it's a good way to tell a bunch of dracs right where you are.
