YACD - almost a YAWP - asking for final advice

I am holding at 4950', trying to muster up enough *healing* and life potions for the final battle.  How many do I need for Morgoth?  There are still about 3-4 high level uniques I need to take out first, if I can find them.  Check out this weapon I found.  I hope this is a rare find, since it is grossly overpowered.  Anyone want to guess how many rounds Ancalagon and Glarung lasted against me wielding this thing?  Funny thing, right after I found this weapon, I walked into a struburst room with a Greater draconic quylthulg.  I just stood there hacking down dragons almost as quickly as it could summon them.  Eventually the Q ran out of mana and just tried to blink around every couple turns.  I really don't bother to use Bard much, the weapon is so powerful.  Any suggestions?  I really want to finish this game as soon as possible so I can get back to coding.

I think I will be the first Ranger to melee Morgoth instead of using arrows.  My only extremely hard fight was Sauron.  I used 13-14 potions of life.  I didn't know he continues to summon uniques when the player is out of LOS.  That makes things interesting.

My inventory is a little abnormal because I am in the middle of clearing out an ancient dragon pit.

Re: YACD - almost a YAWP - asking for final advice

That scythe of slicing is quite good too...

BTW, use Heroism+Chant+Berserk for the big fight. It's easier to get critical hits that way, I think.

Re: YACD - almost a YAWP - asking for final advice

That scythe was very nice too, but it is hard to beat 9d8 damage.  Good idea about heroism/chant/berserk too.  Thanks.

Re: YACD - almost a YAWP - asking for final advice

OK, Morgoth is dead.  I used the kit you see above.  It took 16 potions of life/*healing* and 10 potions of healing, plus 6 scrolls of mass banishment to eliminate the summoned creatures.  As far as I can tell, first you have to let Morgoth go crazy casting spells until his mana is gone, then he is much easier to defeat in simple combat once he can't blast you with spells every round.  Is there an easier way?

Even the store services didn't help much eliminating the long wait between the killing Sauron and building up enough supplies to fight Morgoth, which to me is one of the most boring parts of the game.  Maybe we should have services for purchasing banishment and mass banishment scrolls?

Re: YACD - almost a YAWP - asking for final advice

I think I've always run Morgoth out of mana before the kill. When he's out (even if he can "gather power") he becomes much easier to handle as you say.

For the final fight I use all money I've recieved for sold speed rings etc to get life potions, which tends to be enough. I've started to note down in a textfile which resources I use in the final fights, but the only entry made for NPP is for a paladin - which is not that relevant here, since you can phase and (non-critical) heal with that guy, so potions won't get used up that quickly.

If you'll sell Banishment/Mass banishment scrolls in the shops, set a *very* high price for them. At least 200k.

If that weapon had Slay Evil - it would be the best one I've seen. In my "normal" games (not power-diving) I mostly try to make a MoD artifact or two. I think I've had a couple that would be better for the last fight than yours (due to Slay Evil), but never that kind of dice.

Btw - I think I've meleed with a ranger in the final fight, due to a created MoD and not finding/hoarding Slay Evil arrows fast enough.

Finally - congrats on the win!

Re: YACD - almost a YAWP - asking for final advice

I also meleed Morgoth to some extent with my ranger winner, mostly because I dislike ranged combat that involves ammunition. smile

Purchasing Mass Banishment and Banish would be *very* helpful in avoiding the annoying post Sauron build up boredom, so I'm all for it.
