    1 hour and 30 min to DL32; have 1 Escaping and only a *Slay Animal* +1 INT, no Intellect, no Helm of INT, no rings of INT .. 50 spell points just isn't enough.

    On the plus side, i found a Rod of TO on DL21 ..
    "i can take this dracolich"

      Despite the end result, possibly one of the worst characters i've played. No immunities, no rDisen, rChaos for most of the game, no rNexus at all, no HL, all RoP were garbage, didnt find a single artifact cloak, i mean, wasnt THAT bad when i had so many artifacts to choose from, but it seemed things just wouldn't slot together well.
      Morgoth and Sauron fights with the sling - i didnt bother picking up the ammo afterwards.
      (again, not that it matters, when you have 30 !Mana as a Mage, but still)

      I am still of the opinion that mana potions should only restore 100 points of mana.

        CL18 ranger dead because - trying to find what a -5 was on DL22 - i ran into a scroll mimic, phased, couldn't be bothered to phase again or even aim manually, trying to kill a druid while not understanding that the scroll mimic was still shooting bolts at me.

            Thats not a bad melee setup on your mage. The only detriment being that you are a mage.

              .. i died to Kavlax *again*.

              Saw him - thought "oh no you're not getting me this time" - teleported away, cleared most of the level, completely forgot he was there, walked into a room and got breathed on w/ no resistance.

              i've lost 4 rangers 1 paladin, ALL of which had offhand +shots and paladin had +2 blows in the randart set and a MoD 9d8 Slay Evil.

                Offhand +shots are barely worth the consideration, especially for a ranger. Going from 3 to 3,2 shots is irrelevant unlike, say, going from 5 to 7 blows. I take something like sound resistance over the shots.

                  +1 shots means +1 shots.

                    Old was too powerful, new is kind of pointless.

                    I think the right change is to get rid of +shots and +attacks entirely. I'd replace old +1 with +20% to damage, either shots or attacks. It's wrong that +attacks helps warriors the least.

                      i think the problem is that +blows was designed with standarts in mind. So a small agile weapon like Sting can have the damage of a bigger weapon, while maintainig the "flavour" of a smaller weapon. It probably was never intended to go on *any* weapon, just in case you get a randart MoD with 8d8 and +2 blows.

                      +shots is kinda "bigger nuclear bomb" situation. Rangers already have around 5/6/700 vs evil (1k with HM) and that already trivializes any encounter that you are willing to waste ammo on (e.g any top-tier unique). With extra shots you're just turning ridiculous into more ridiculous.

                      Meanwhile,

                      High-Elf Ranger: https://forum.angband.live/ladder-show.php?id=25745

                      again won by using 2x Escaping and 5/5/5/5 at character creation. I even considered quaffing some Intellect, although early ranger with low STR is such a pain to run.
                      ESP at DL26 on a blessed dagger, then a +5 INT crown drop. Randart amulet with +3 Spd, and a RoP with not many bonuses but pBlind and pConf, +3 Spd, rDisench, and then engame bow with +2 shots and a solid +27 damage.

                      Nowhere near the most ridiculous launcher i've had (i think we're talking x6 bow with +30 and +1 shots), and ate a lot of ammo, but easy enough to run with basic arrows and Tenser's.

                      BONUS: went down to DL101 and saw LF 8-9, and there it was, the second Dragon Armor artefact. A bit late

                        High Elf Paladin ... "just trust me bro".

                        Despite me being 100% convinced i had used the "overwrite file?" - i actually didn't.

                        5/5/5/5 starting stats.
                        Found a dagger of slay orc with ESP on DL2, then went again the route of the launcher + 2x Escaping. Sure escaping cripples your already meager casting early on, just carry more ammo, mmk? short bow of +1 extra shots, then stat gain until WIS 18/100.
                        Made it to DL98 with STR 18 !!, i was CL45 before i saw STR maxed.

                        found 2 Dragon Armors, so it was kinda like this:

                        MoD 5d8 +15, +2 WIS

                        the Light Crossbow of Sirethron (x5) (+8,+22) <+2, +1>
                        ------------------------------------------------------
                        +2 dexterity.
                        +2 shooting power.
                        +1 light.
                        Provides resistance to lightning, poison.
                        Cannot be harmed by acid, fire.
                        Grants telepathy. Prevents paralysis.

                        a RoS +12

                        Shield of Preservation
                        because i had a build with +23 base Spd but ZERO resists, and a melee setup.
                        i had found this very early:
                        the Small Metal Shield of Randundeb [5,+17] <+5>
                        ------------------------------------------------

                        Sustains intelligence.
                        Speeds regeneration.

                        tons of Helms, cannot remember which one i used. something to cap CON probably, idk. Had plenty of ESP options.

                        the Set of Alchemist's Gloves of Elebrie (+6,+6) [0,+17] <+2, +3>
                        -----------------------------------------------------------------
                        Highly protective gloves designed for an alchemist's elemental magics.

                        Cannot be harmed by acid, fire.
                        (could have probably benefitted from just using BoS +10)

                        the Arkenstone 'Uindir' <+2, +3>
                        --------------------------------

                        got this SUPER early, idk like DL13.

                        because you have Sense Surroundings and Detection, not quite as important as with other classes, but still nice to have. And +2 CON.
                        Not having to deal with Fear the whole game was nice too.

                        the Amulet of Earthilya [+2] <+3>

                        Cannot be harmed by lightning.
                        Speeds regeneration.

                        MoD was doing 740 damage vs evil. With +2 blows my worst weapon at home was doing 400 vs evil, so, plenty of choice. Had to use some weird rapier just because i had no rDisen and was already below depth for things like drolems and such.

                        CL50, cant remember how many HP but over 1k. 1017 ?
                        Spd +19 loaded.
                        no sWIS but all the other plus every resist in the game, including pStun.

                          I assume escaping still gives 4 speed in this version ?
                          I liked the 2 escaping start (or rather, I liked that it was an option, it made for different gameplay). It was about the only point of escaping rings, I havent used the +2 version ever. Has anyone ?

                            Not I. +2 speed does not compete with rFire+rCold, or ring of mouse, etc.

                              i dont think +4 Spd is enough. Thats with 2 rings obviously. If you are a mage, this is still your best bet until you have rings of INT, because 2x ring +3 INT is better.
                              Rangers are the ones who profit the most from the old Escaping. Your to-hit is pretty much the same and +8 Spd from 2 rings is a massive increase, find any decent Longbow you can enchant to +8 or so and you are well enough to stay on DL35 until your stats are all over 18/50.
                              For mages, the situation is similar, your casting fail rate increases, but since you will be using almost exclusively Magic Missile, it doesnt really matter.
                              The real advantage is that Escaping *STOPS* you from accidentally meleeing mobs. You can play faster and dont have to worry about running into a mob you had no intention of attacking.

                              obviously it's all on a case-by-case basis. Depending on what early randarts you find, Escaping is still a viable option, even at +2.

                                With a ranger or caster, I take bad mouse rings over escaping +2 any day. Even when escaping was +4 I rarely used it, instead preferring mouse or nothing (if I have something like a *thanc, I wont use escaping early on and on dlvl 35 Ill have better options).

                                Anyway, If you should ever use +2 escaping do post a dump.
