I was wonder what the best weapon to go with is because I have two really nice short swords... but I also have a great sword and lajatang that may be a better use of skill points for later on. I also have that staff of poison that I'm not sure is useful or not. Going for a 3 rune win. Been playing since 0.13 but still suck. Hopefully that +6 ring will keep me alive a bit longer. I'm sitting on top of a stairway to D:5 (like 5 orc priests down there, trying to fight them one by one because smite is painful), and I've cleared about a 1/4 of D:5.

Re: Early HoFi Weapon Advice

As a rule of thumb never change to short blades except in certain very special circumstances, none of which you encountered. Staves/Lajatang is a solid choice, low skill investment, but has the lowest damage of all end tier weapons. You'll have to make your own enchanted/branded though, they are kind of rare. Long blades/great sword are on the other end, high damage on the highest tier (claymore, rarer than lajatang) and swords of all kinds are really common( lajatang:16, great sword:16, Claymore: 19 damage). Staves also mean giving up on shields, whereas there are 1handed LBs.

Re: Early HoFi Weapon Advice

I'd drop the shield and use the lajatang, personally, but going with the great sword is fine too. Neither of those short swords is particularly good because they have less than half the base damage of the other weapons you have.

You have 18 AC and nearly 60 HP at level 7 which is good you don't need a shield, and being able to kill stuff fast also helps mitigate the damage you take.

Also, put your character dumps in code tags. Edit your post, remove the quote tags, highlight the character dump portion and hit the "Code" button that is next to the quote button above the text box.

Re: Early HoFi Weapon Advice

Thanks.
After I took out the orcs I tried to run from a water moccasin after it poisoned me on the next level and I didnt realize a snake was chasing me (and thus couldn't outrun it) so I didn't stop until I was at 6HP. With none of the potions identified I just started drinking them hoping to get curing/heal wounds but I died before I found either. I'm also new enough that I didn't notice the scroll of fear. That being said, what are the special circumstances where switching to short blades is appropriate? Also, what is the best skill distribution for fighters this early? Is putting any points into throwing handy or should I just leave it be and hope for the best when throwing?

Re: Early HoFi Weapon Advice

My opinion is that the only time you should be using short blades is if you're a stabber attacking from stealth. If you had a high enchantment quickblade of electrocution, that might also be another reason to swap. I always train long blades as a secondary weapon for the times when stealth fails. My 2 cents.

Re: Early HoFi Weapon Advice

The character does have +10 slaying, +9 quickblade and +12 cutlass of freezing.
As a counterpoint my current character has +2 slaying and couldn't hurt Orc Knight with +6 dagger of freezing (branded from venom) so I switched to +3 Demon Whip of venom which was far from min delay but killed him fast enough.

Re: Early HoFi Weapon Advice

Yes, it was intended to show the exception to the rule that shortblades should never be used for melee (That char would be worse off with any weapon with a slower delay) It wasn't intended to say "Shortblades are the best and should used all time time optimally" It was specifically in response to this:
skjarl wrote:My opinion is that the only time you should be using short blades is if you're a stabber attacking from stealth.

I was just showing an example of one of the times where a short blades are useful outside of a stabber attacking from stealth.

Re: Early HoFi Weapon Advice

So in response to the original poster : switch to short blades if you are playing a stabber, get a really awesome short blade early,(+2 short sword does not count, more like+12 cutlass of flaming and rF++), have a lot of slaying, or have abyssimal aptitudes for everything else (and this last bit is debatable).
