FeJr^Nemlex How not to be a glass cannon

So I've been playing around with Jesters, specifically Felid Jesters...

And I died a *bunch* (Starting with Xom wrath is often just straight up deadly, more than one death was in the level 1-3 range, when Xom just outright killed me with his wrath, having low max HPs makes things which another character would just shrug off)

Finally I started getting around the wrath by abusing Nemlex early on, and Felids are a natural choice for Nemlex (Sacrifice everything becase, what the heck else are you going to do with it?)

And what I'm trying to figure out is: This is my absolute toughest, least squish-able, FeJr to date, and I still feel like each and every time I try to kill something that's not a totally wimpy critter, I take my life into my hands.

I'm partway through the lair at this point (I had to wait until D:13 to find the entrance) and I can manage most things one on one, I'm worried that I'm going to get a death yak pack or something cutting off my escape route at some point (That type of thing is what always seems to happen when I think things are going well)

Obviously there's a number of spells I need/want to keep me alive a little better but I've got memorized everything that I can think of usefully that I've found so far. I could probably memorize some summons and hang out behind a wall of critters, but so far all the summons I have available are level 1 and 2 ones, which are only useful in fights I don't need them, spending 2 mp on a deck of summoning (despite it's inconsistency) is just about 100% more effective right now.

Any advice on how I can keep giant clubs and blasters from squishing me as a ever-squishable Felid, It's about the time I'm done with orc/lair that I seem to always hit *something* that kills me (Came close earlier while running from a Cyclops that managed to hit me with two rocks when I rounded an already-explored corner into a centaur pack at 9hp, fortunately they only got me with 1 arrow before I escaped upstairs) I do have 1 life in the bank, but I've lost 3 lives so I jut have the one spare until I'm higher level and I'd rather not lose any more.

Re: FeJr^Nemlex How not to be a glass cannon

Well, you have high fighting/dodging and claim you don't have any unmemorized spells which might be useful. I don't know what can improve your defenses at this point. At least you are with Nemelex so you can kill everything you encounter with summoning/destruction decks.

And this was a *really* stupid death. Sometimes you can see everything very clearly in hindsight, Let's count the mistakes:

I saw agnes, asleep in Xom's altar room, but decided that I didn't want to go that particular direction (Xom room filled with annoying traps) and explored in a different direction, so I left her asleep and moved on. Encounted an Orc pack, no biggie, they have a knight and a couple regular ors, so I start beating them down, but then two priests and a high priest come around the corner, EV doesn't do jack against smiting, so I start high-tailing it (Took about 4 smites before I was out of LOS down to about 35 hps) fled for the stairs, but on the way agnes woke up and harried me to the staircase. Got upstairs with 22hps left, downed a healing potion and hit my summon deck twice hoping for a cloud of nasties to retreat behind. On my second summon, my Phase Shift wore out, but I got a cloud of vapors, so I moved back swapping with my vapor leaving me at 9 hps but with a thing between me and agnes, I downed another healing potion, agnes killed my summon and stepped up next to me, I downed my speed potion, and died.

1. Leaving Agnes alive and near-ish to my escape route to start with was a bad call, I didn't have any destruction decks left to draw her out with, but I could've used some other lure to haul her to a clear area with a bunch of summons to beat her down with, she's nasty but with full hp and proper preparation I could have killed her safely.
2. Not drawing the orc pack out and away from the blackness to kill them. Dumb call on my part, I know better, but sometimes when it's "Just a wimpy/easy thing" I take the lazy, less work-y route and just kill it where I find it.
3. Overusing my decks to the point of forgetting I have other solutions, I was too busy thinking about how I was going to handle things later and not paying attention to what I was doing right now.
4. Underestimating Agnes/overestimating my combat abilities. Yes, 12AC and 44 EV are pretty spiffy for level 15 and being able to 2 shot giants with my little pouncy claws is nice, but *monsters are hard sometimes*
5. NOT USING MY BLINK SCROLL! Egad, seriously where was my brain? Easy way out to blink to the upstaircase and leave agnes behind to go heal. It's very hard to rest with someone beating on your head with a long stick with blades on the end.

Re: FeJr^Nemlex How not to be a glass cannon

When I find a slreping unique (or anything, really) I don't want to deal with, I always step back and then add a travel exclusion on them.

Re: FeJr^Nemlex How not to be a glass cannon

Well, travel exclusion wouldn't have done me any good in this case, Agnes had woken up and moved *into* my retreat path from where she was sleeping when I found her (I use travel exclusions all the time on stuff I don't want to tangle with) I must've been close enough when I encountered the orcs that their shout woke her up.

Yes, that's a good idea to avoid fighting near excluded areas. I remember once I found Sigmund and Blork the Orc in an open area. Both were sleeping but after putting exlusions on them I realized the excluded area was covering almost 1/3 of the whole level so I went downstairs without fully exploring the level. I died later anyway of course :)
