CIP - KoBe first time considering Zot

Hey all,

I'm still pretty new to this game; I found it prolly about a month or two ago. Previously I only ever got to the bottom of Lair and Orc a few times, but never past that. But lately I've been trying the KoBe and I've finally got a lot farther; for a while I had favored the MiBe because I felt too squishy as a kobold, but after a while I got fed up with not seeing anything past the beginning game and played a KoBe in wizmode. I played around with that character for a while and tried not to die too much (I MOSTLY succeeded...) but I got a few runes and saw more of the game, as well as got a better feel for the class/race combo.

Then, I read through a nifty Let's Play for this game previously posted on this forums; this person also played a KoBe, and I started to get a better feeling for how to play in a way that DIDN'T kill me in the first few dungeon levels. A few KoBe's later, I got this character. And I really think this one could win.

So far, I've gotten three (!) runes (at least a "!" for me, never having gotten far past Orc & Lair), which were Snake, Swamp, and Vaults respectively. Here's a char dump.

I don't really care about trying to get more runes, since I would rather just win if I can. But I'm a little worried, mainly about my resistances. I've got a couple amulets of rMut, so I'm not concerned about that, but I don't think I've found any significant rF, and certainly not enough to get rF+++ to face off against those Orbs of Fire. I could always scour the blue armor scattered around the dungeon, but I don't know if that'll be enough, or how to balance resistances based off of what I'm facing.

And since I've never actually SEEN Zot, I'm anxious because I don't really know what to expect, nor if I will be prepared.

I have a feeling that I shouldn't go directly to Zot at this point, but I'm not certain what to do next. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Re: CIP - KoBe first time considering Zot

You really need more rF. Try the first 4 levels of Elf and see what shakes out. Same for Crypt 1-4. Just stay away from the Tomb and you should be safe with that guy.

Re: CIP - KoBe first time considering Zot

also you can quaff your potions of resistance before hard fights

Re: CIP - KoBe first time considering Zot

Mkay, I'll go pour over Elf 1-4 and Crypt to see what I get. If I don't get anything, I'm thinking I should start parsing those blue armors to see what I get.

A couple questions:

1. Is it a travesty that I never picked up a shield? (i.e. should I go get one?)
2. (a sort of a stupid one) How do you use rods? (The one I got can cast abjuration, which would be awesome, especially when I run into ancient liches)
3. Should I switch from Trog?

This is important. If you have a ton of blue armors lying around the dungeon, get them all, and cast detect curse. Try them on and see what you get.

Re: CIP - KoBe first time considering Zot

All righty, so I first went and grabbed an okay (randart?) buckler from a shop, and then I went and parsed through blues. I successfully found a ring mail of rF, so that was nice.

I went through Elf1-4 and Crypt 1-4. Elf was absolute cake, and it made me wonder if I'd be okay doing Elf:5, but I know the end level of a branch is usually considerably harder, so I decided to pass. Crypt was a little harder, but I still trounced it.

In the meantime, I got some promising results.

Still no clarity or teleport control. Does clarity prevent paralyzation? Cause that was the absolute worst part of running around Crypt, as you could see from the log. The closest I got to death was being caught after a berserk ended by a Vampire knight, who decided to paralyze me as it summoned lots of critters to kill me. I ended up teleporting away and came back to stomp it.

But in the meantime, I located a ring of rF as well. I now could manage rF+++ if I equipped one of Trog's gifts I got a while back.

So what to do now?

But don't forget, stasis also prevents berserking.

Cool, good to know.

In the meantime, though, what should I do next?

Re: CIP - KoBe first time considering Zot

I see you have a venom weapon equipped. I didn't look through your file, but that's going to be more or less useless in Zot.

I'm glad you got all the rF! That will help a lot.

Normally I would suggest you max fighting to increase hp. Can you handle the Abyss? If so, you can farm there for awhile to get those skills higher. That 16 in stabbing is good and all, but I'm not sure you're going to need it anymore (I say turn it off).

Also, you maybe can explore Zot:1. Be careful, remember that Moth of Wrath can turn a monster into a total beast of destruction, and give it a shot. Far weaker folks than you have done it.

Good luck!

Re: CIP - KoBe first time considering Zot

So this has been interesting!

I went ahead and went to the Abyss to train up Fighting a bit. I ended up procuring an abyssal rune, so whoo for me. It was mostly straightforward with a few crazy highlights.

1. The closest I came to dying was when I was fighting some smaller demons and I spotted a Balrug. I decided to run, but I ended up stuck in a dead-end surrounded by demons while the Balrug struggled to get at me. There was lava beside me, so I thought if I levitated I could escape (or at least teleported), but I had no such items that allowed me to do either. (In retrospect, I might have tried blinking...it wasn't controlled, but it might have helped) I fought desperately, and when the Balrug got next to me, I berserked despite the fact that other critters were still around. I surprised myself by taking out the Balrug in a few hits, and then I took out as many as possible before the berserk ended. It still wasn't enough, and I got cornered by a Titan zombie. So I used BoA a couple times and hid, thinking I was absolutely doomed. ...Aaand then the Abyss changed. Saved by the bell...er...chaotic shift?

2. While cruising around, I spotted an Executioner. I tried to get away, but realized that they are FAST. But it didn't see me, and it proceeded to wander DIRECTLY PAST ME and off the screen. Go stealth.


I didn't end up maxing Fighting there, cause I was getting sick of it. I ended up taking the 2nd portal back to the dungeon that I found with Fighting around 24-ish.

So I decided to take on Zot. Zot so far has been rough, at least compared to the places I've been. My strategy for it has been stab as many of the draconians as I can in their sleep, and when I can't, lure them alone to places where I can berserk and kill them. But the problem is that I seem to HAVE to berserk in order to kill them. I feel like this is because I switched to using my dagger of Trog since it didn't have the venom-brand, but it is probably putting out less raw damage. So, I did a ctrl-F for artefacts and I didn't see any replacements that tickled my fancy, so dagger of Trog it has been.

But with my dagger, I can't seem to kill much of anything there aside from moths of wrath in any real expedience unless I berserk. This is seriously concerning to me. Is this normal?

Nevertheless, so far I've cleared it down to most of Zot:3 without any real problems. I've been consistently kiting everything so that I only go toe to toe with one monster at a time, because my berserk doesn't usually last long enough to take on more than that. And to helm this, I FINALLY found a ring of tele control, so I've started making judicial use of my blinks. I had no idea how awesome controlled blink at will was, but it has quickly gotten me out of many a potentially hairy situation.

I ran into an orb of fire on Zot:2 while healing up after fighting a couple draconians on Zot:3, and I forgot that I needed rMut when I fought them, so I got a few not so great mutations. But I was very pleased how trivial rF+++ made it, so thank you to those who helped me get that!

The only real hang-up I found was running into Tiamat without realizing there was a unique present on Zot:3. I only realized this after kiting a few individually up and zerk-killing them as usual, because I ended up kiting two at once and noticed her name. I tried to zerk-kill her too, but that didn't go well. I had to blink out of there, and I'm making a concerted effort to avoid her.


So far, though, I'm feeling pretty good about this. Blink is a life-saver, and zerking is powerful.

I am really seriously concerned about the weapon problem though; what am I going to do when I get to Zot:5 and there's Orb Guardians everywhere? (I actually have no real idea what to do on Zot:5 yet...that'll be fun!)

Re: CIP - KoBe first time considering Zot

I recently won with a KoBe, you can see my questions asked here: viewtopic.php?f=5&t=1510

Looking at your equip: Warding does not do you much good i think, and your rings are sub-par, regeneration is not so strong if you can invoke it at need with Trogs Hand.

I would say you can go to Elf 5, especially with your boots of running. Be prepared to do hit and run a lot. If you have an antimagic weapon it would help a lot! Maybe some more MR if you have some.
Don't bother with abjuration unless you have to, if a Demonologist starts calling in troops you run away, wait for some time and maybe you find him alone wandering around.

If you have rMut and rCorr you can also make the slime pits, i found some nice equipment there.

As far as berserk is concerned: Don't use it unless you have lured an enemy to a cleared level. And even then it is dangerous. If you are slowed you can easily be ganged up by weaker monsters, nearly everything becomes a threat!

If you want you can follow the link in my post above, i posted plenty of screenshots of my Zot adventure. The text is in German though :)
I'd say stop doing Zot and try to find some more Equip in Elf 5 and possibly Slime.
An Orb of Fire without rF+++ and rMut is going to cause you real trouble otherwise, i lost my first lvl 27 char in Zot to one.

Re: CIP - KoBe first time considering Zot

Heh I remember seeing your post. :) I had checked out the other board earlier, because I can read some German and I always love trying to read new things to see if I can.

Yeah, the ring thing has kind of surprised me, especially since I've burned 3-ish scrolls of acquirement on jewelery. But the couple randart rings that it gave me had just stat-boosts (I THINK I might have gotten my amulet from them, but I don't remember...)

I had heard that Trog's regen was pretty weak, which is why I've been using a ring. Is the ring not any stronger?

I thought warding gave rN, but I could be wrong. I should look it up.

My current weapon (the dagger I was talking about) is antimagic, which is nice. Is Elf:5 not really any harder than the things I've been doing? I'd hate to get demolished by a bunch of archers or something like that. (can you tell I'm nervous about losing this character? heh)

As far as Slime Pits, my general understanding was that for a beginner considering trying to win, it was probably good to stay away cause a lot of characters die miserably there. I can't actually get both rMut and rCorr at the same time (oh, amulets!). Although there is a lot of nice equipment...

I do actually have the ability to get rF+++ now, which is nice.

Re: CIP - KoBe first time considering Zot

I guess rF+++ and rMut is what really is needed for Zot.
If you can handle the draconians in Zot you can handle the elves in Elf 5, they are basically the same with less HP (Demonologist, Annihilator etc).
You can lure them out 1 by 1 usually, the only really dangerous ones are the Demonologists, and you can run from them if they start calling in their demonic friends.
The two master archers are difficult, but again not that much different from a yaktaur captain, and if you get them 1 on 1 you win easily.

I have done slime with several characters now, and did not find it very difficult, but your mileage may vary. As a stabber you get a lot of them slimes while they sleep. But i guess you need rCorr on all the time, i had a cloak of conservation. It lost one plus, on my other char i lost three, but had plenty of enchant scrolls to counter that afterwards.

I'd say go for Elf 5 first, and depending on what you find you can give Slime a try. As a stealth char you can usually check the situation and decide on what you see (stabbing the royal jelly is fun).

Trog's regen is better then the rings or troll armor. You will be looking at recovering 1 hp per turn at least. You recover more with high piety. All sources of Regen that I know of stack with each other so using them both can be pretty solid.
