YASD: SpCj of Vehumet sniped after getting rune

I cleared through all but the last levels of the Swamp and moved on to the Snake Pits since I didn't think my character was ready to deal with all the Hydras on the last floor of the Swamp branch. The first floor of Snake was rather easy, but the second floor gave me problems since Vashnia just refused to die. Naturally, I skipped the floor and went on to the third level without too much difficulty besides Jorgrun ruining a few corners for me to hide in. The fourth level was a problem due to Louise and Norris making a mess of things; however, OoD made short work of them after I decided it was worth the hunger cost. A guardian serpant also blinked a number of annoying enemies around me, but Blink took care of that problem. I was eventually able to slay my way through all the other naga to get the Serpantine Rune. I went to the other vault-like structure hoping to find something useful like a Staff of Energy, but that was a dud. A little disheartened, I decided to go back up to reorganize my loot in preparation of what to do next whether it was to clear Swamp 5 to get its rune and maybe some other useful goodies or to clear the first few levels of Vaults to increase my skills. None of those plans came to fruition due to back-spawns forcing me to go to Snake 2 sooner than I wanted to, and Vashnia of course wasn't far from where I entered. Not having much options, I evoked my wand of Heal Wounds and got a teleport ready. That wasn't enough to escape death, though.

What I'm wondering is how could I have been able to avoid that death. Some tips for skilling would also be appreciated. I usually play my SpCj characters as Ashenzari worshippers, so having less experience to work with is a bit tough on me seeing as I just can't put a few points in my necessary spell schools and dump the rest in Spellcasting and Fighting.

Here's my char dump:

Re: YASD: SpCj of Vehumet sniped after getting rune

One thing I think is a mistake is that you have way too much fighting: much of the experience you spent on defenses should have gone into dodging, and maybe enough armor too to get a point of AC.

Re: YASD: SpCj of Vehumet sniped after getting rune

I think your Fighting is good. Dodging could've been higher, yes, much higher.

You also have scrolls of blinking in your inventory, one of those could've saved you. One of the things that is hard for a newer player is to properly judge the danger. When you're in such position, the delayed escape (teleport) isn't good enough. Blinking is.

You were also using an unidentified wand of heal wounds while having 3 ID scrolls, wasting valuable charges with each zap. That's hardly ideal!

I don't mean to dispute (or support) that that much fighting might have been worth getting instead of some other things -- just that Dodging should not have been one of the things sacrificed.

I'd say Spellcasting should've been, I hope you agree with me here?

Re: YASD: SpCj of Vehumet sniped after getting rune

I normally give my Spriggans at least 27 EV. Sacrificing a point in Conjuration and Fire respectively could have helped in that. I also thought I would be using level six spells more often, so I trained it until they were hungerless. Poisen Arrow wasn't all that useful in Snake, but Freezing Cloud did help in softening up some enemies.

Now that I think about it, I probably could have zapped a wand of digging on the eastern wall and blinked there to get out of Vashnia's LoS. Such is hindsight.

I think he trained all that spellcasting to get freezing cloud to hungerless.

Don't worry. It happens to me all the time in other forums. Putting too much points in my offensive spell schools really hampered on dodging. I tend to like having at least 100 HP when getting my first rune as a Spriggan so I can run away from spike damage rather than use consumables to do it. Naga Warp Snipers are really annoying when it comes to that. Even more so than Guardian Serpants.

Re: YASD: SpCj of Vehumet sniped after getting rune

The point is, you don't really need your level 6 spells to be completely hungerless when you have so much food.

Also PArrow should be fine in Snake, it pierces one level of rPois pretty well.

True enough. How many pips of hunger would you want level six spells to have if you were playing that character?

Re: YASD: SpCj of Vehumet sniped after getting rune

That's a hard question to answer! I'd probably cast spells and if I feel like I'm getting hungry too fast, train more Spellcasting?

Re: YASD: SpCj of Vehumet sniped after getting rune

I suppose I can do that when there's no shortage of edible food as long as I can keep level five spells hungerless. I use Battlesphere too often for me to do otherwise.

Re: YASD: SpCj of Vehumet sniped after getting rune

Killhole (dig diagonal, take a few steps in the dig on the 90° diagonal, take one step in that direction, so that monster has to done adjacent to be in LOS) is the safest way to deal with Vashnia and her band. They are nasty.

Re: YASD: SpCj of Vehumet sniped after getting rune

For any low-AC high EV characters Vashnia and co are probably the most deadly threat in the game right now. They are higher on my do not engage list than Mara etc. Just leave the floor alone.

Return to YASD! YAVP! and characters in progress too
