What now?

What should I do now?
  • Swamp: 4 can have the Lernean Hydra and I don't have a plan against it (no phantom mirror).
  • Don't remember what is particularly nasty about Spider: 4
  • I have an +1 Elec executioner axe, a scroll of branding, 9 scroll of enchant weapon and 2 or 3 of enchant armour
  • I have no SInv and only this lame axe to give rElec

Re: What now?

Has a phantom mirror generated anywhere? It is my go-to solution for Lerny. It has never been anything other than an instakill for me even at zero Evo.

Nope. Just edited my post because I called it by the wrong name.
I don't know if the lernean hydra is there mind you. I'm just afraid of it because I lost a very promising char to it.

Re: What now?

While swamp 4 can have the lernean hydra, it's by no means all that common. Plenty of endings do not have it. Your currently equipped axe does not give rElec, it has the electric ego to deal electric damage on some attacks. The handaxe can be dropped, it's not worth using, and you don't really need rElec. Your executioner's axe is antimagic, and worth enchanting and using for anything that can cast.

I'd probably enchant your GDS. Enchanting the gloves of strength once is probably a good idea, and the hat could be too. I'd avoid enchanting the cloak as you may find another cloak (especially in zot) and it's quite hard to max out a GDS, so every point counts. If you had 10 EA scrolls, then the cloak might be okay, but I'd probably do the hat/gloves and 8 scrolls on the GDS even so.

While you might need to run from Lernean on the low chance it actually exists, you should generally be quite capable of clearing both swamp:4 and snake:4. Then move on to vaults 1-4, then clear depths, backtrack to vaults:5, and then clear zot and win. Optionally you can do elf and crypt if you want to, but it isn't required.

If you see Lernean or anything too dangerous really, you have 23 teleport scrolls which should be plenty to save you. Honestly, you're close to having enough defenses that even lernean wouldn't be too deadly in melee, although it's still high risk. GDS's GDR can help a lot if you have >40 ac, although you're still a bit too low since it isn't enchanted. It's been a while since I tried, how effective are brothers in arms vs lernean? It'd be great if it ignores them as it chases you, but if the hydra attacks them I'd assume it could kill a brother in arms in one turn, and then you're just down a lot of piety.

Re: What now?

Learny isnt that bad. Tele if you see him, or destroy him w/ evokables. This char looks pretty busted and shouldn't have any issues w/ either branch end. Stop training axes and keep using the battleaxe. Maybe later you could use the exe axe if you have the scrolls to pump it, but that battleaxe is easily good enough to kill anything.

edit. actually read your post. With nine ew scrolls you may as well use the exe axe--it will be stupid powerful, but in hindsight stopping training axes at 20 might have been 'more optimal' from an overall character power standpoint, at least for awhile.

Re: What now?

That battleaxe is actually a great weapon. It would've been fine to stop training axes a while ago, maybe at 20 and just use that. Enchanting up the anti-magic exec axe and using it on casters is also good.

Don't fight Lerny in melee with this character, it could go wrong. The basic easy strategy for dealing with the big hydra is lure to stairs, go up (without taking it along), go down different stairs. If you get surprised by it in a bad spot then tele while moving away. Possibly summon bros. You don't have to kill every monster.

Spider:4 should be fairly harmless for you. You've got the basic resists covered with rPois and rCorr. There will probably be moths of wrath and ghost moths, maybe uniques like arachne and maybe spark wasps. (Berserking emperor scorpions can do a lot of damage.) Stay near stairs and pick of stuff that comes alone / in small groups. Entropy weavers can be annoying, but you should've already encountered them.

I'd enchant the gold dragon scales and gloves, raise Int and learn some useful spells. Animate skeleton is pretty remarkable and you don't even need it at at low fail chance.
