Mage

Got tired with melee. tongue

Also, I haven't won with a Mage since I created the new offensive spells, so I decided try and change that.

When I was designing the Spells for the Mage class, I noticed that deeper 'A's and (more importantly) Power Drakes resist everything a Mage has except Magic Missile, Shard Storm, Mana Bolt and Mana Storm. I was very happy with that since I believe every dedicated spell caster class should have a few monsters it can't handle. A 45+ level Mages have always been exempt from this rule always due to Mana Storm, but for most of the game it should hold true.

Priests go white at the sight of Hydras and Mages run and scream like little girls at the sight of Power Drakes, Greater Maiar, Blue Wizards and Istar.

So, of course I get Power Drakes as a quest on dlvl 35. tongue

As soon as I get 18/100 CON, I'll tackle them with 0% fail TP_Away, Magic Missile and Shard Storm at a range, while saving the Long Bow for a finisher once they get close.

Re: Mage

Next Quest is Tselakus, whose big Nether Storms/Bolts and +20 speed will be very dangerous.

I think I need to power up for him a little somehow. Maybe a CON boosting weapon would let me swap the CON ring for a RES_NETHER ring. Rift's slowing side effect is essential in this fight. Fortunately, he takes full damage from Nova, but I still need more Mana and Healing potions to defeat him.

Re: Mage

Hmmm...

I just realised that finding Cambeleg would allow me to swap in a Nether ring by Maxing Con and swapping the elvenkind boots for Thror.

True! I've always been disappointed with them.
Anybody know of really good artifact that's been crafted?

Re: Mage

Never seen one.

Still, every now and then I try and am disappointed.

Re: Mage

Well... is this the same code that used to create random artifacts (not randarts) as quest rewards (when reputation is really high) ?

If so, yes, I've seen some pretty good ones, but only when cheating.

In my current game, I'm cheating to playtest, so I might buy a few artifacts, and post up any good ones i get (need to save up another 200000 gold first)

Re: Mage

I managed to win this time.

Morgoth was difficult as always, but I had enough consumables and patience to grind him down.

Re: Mage

Well done. Nice winner.

Any reason you took down rods and staves? I'd normally leave these at home to stop them being drained. And why the rod of speed? Surely fail rate on haste_self is very low?

Re: Mage

Fail rate on haste was 0% for a long time of course. The only reason I was carrying the Rod of Speed with me was that I just for got to sell it when I was in town before going to meet Morgoth. The truth is that I just never let Morgoth get in melee range, so I never got around to destrying the Rods. I chose to carry Staves of the Magi and staying out of melee range because scumming for Restore Mana would have been taken ages and propably induced a boredom related death.

Also, I dislike using bows, so Bard + Slay evil ammo is out of the question. Going that route with a Mage is no less than blasphemy IMO. tongue
