Ahhh, too many choices...

Ok, current LOFi^Oka run has been far too generous, so much so that when I plan to switch to TSO, I'm not sure on what would be the best route:

Okawaru says: Bring me glory in combat!
Press ? for a list of commands and other information.

a: "Undeadhunter" +7 Great Mace (yes, a great item that will assuredly get me killed, and from Oka no less)
b: +3,+5 Great mace (crush) (intended to holy this, but)
c: +1, +1 demon whip (slash) (this came along)

Now, current plan is to wield the Undeadhunter through Crypt as I'm pumping TSO piety, but once I can, I'm not sure if it'd be best to Holy the Whip and start working with shields or my base Great Mace and start upping Dodging. Any thoughts?

Re: Ahhh, too many choices...

Shield is not that useful in extended so if you don't have a decent shield like Shield of Resistance, I would stay with Great Mace. Extended is much easier if you can kill fiends/tormentors in a single shot (especially in Hell)
