Demon whip on KoHu

Hey,

So I started a kobold hunter, focussing on shortblades and xbows...
Surprisingly I am still alive and I found in a shop on the upperlevels this little gem

+10 demon whip "Oxtued" {vamp, relec, rc+, Dex+3} for 1200g

Vamp is difficult due to the hungercost...

But since I am running a kohu of oka (running engorged most times and still am in the bashy phase...) I figured, that this weapon would be worth the investment of gold (the skill investment rather is meek)...

What do you people think about that?

Would like to add morgue file but its abit difficult here via phone (I usually only play on this)

Re: Demon whip on KoHu

Kobold is one of the best species for vampiric's hunger cost, because they can get to "Full" by eating chunks instead of rations. Do not let hunger stop you. This is an excellent weapon. Buy it and use it at your first opportunity; don't forget that you can acquire gold if you get a chance to do that before you accumulate the funds. Just keep eating chunks to stay at Full or above, which is easy to do in most branches, and you can use crossbows at range and then melee with whip. This will be very powerful, and the whip is cheap; so don't neglect your defenses and use your XP savings on those, particularly Fighting.

Re: Demon whip on KoHu

And pick up and use a shield for now, but don't train it too much because soon you'll be getting an arbalest or triple crossbow from Oka or the floor. You'll be using a two-handed ranged weapon, and a one-handed melee weapon, and that's okay. That whip is really good.

Re: Demon whip on KoHu

Yeah that whip is totally sick, you should get it and never look back.
I am not a very good player. My mouth is a foul pit of LIES. KNOW THIS.

Re: Demon whip on KoHu

I am on it ... just have to get out of a little encounter involving 5 dreamsheep ...
Seriously ... who invented those ... barely made it away with an invispot ... and rng put an icebear next to me when i ran up the final stairs ... good that the pot was still kicking so i could step away and kill it ...

Btw new lesson ... dreamsheep can sleep you while they cannot see you ...if that is intended?

Re: Demon whip on KoHu

Vamp hunger cost is a one-time thing. That demon whip is nuts and you will not need any ranged weapon with it, but it would be fine to train throwing.

Re: Demon whip on KoHu

Nessos has a super low MR, so try hex wands next time
I'm with tasonir on this one.
