Got the unrandart Leech, so I just popped every potion buff I had and basically tabbed floor 5 to death. It was awesome.

Haha I never fought the slime boss so I didn't expect that kind of rear end whooping. Always carry at least one blink scroll

leech is nearly twenty years old. there are just a lot of unrands in crawl, and mostly they aren't very common

idk what your build was but you shouldn't ever, ever try to melee trj without at least 27 fighting for the hp and really high defense, also the new acid modifiers from a few versions ago are actually meaningful and dangerous, unlike the old corossion that did nothing. trj hits really hard and of course you get swamped. AND you usually want a couple pips of resist cold cuz of the ice jellies.

if you're a melee guy [or like an earth elementalist] don't fight trj until you're in the corridors and then haste/might/finesse/potion of intelligence yourself and go ham don't berzerk yourself tho because a million jellies will kill you when u faint

in my pope game,


trj tipz:
  • fight in a corridor so that you don't get completely surrounded
  • be willing to use buffs and consumables
  • don't get so fixated on the kill that you fail to escape if things get nasty

there are also some goofy tricks you can try, like using ?immolation after a few jellies pop out, or comboing ?vulnerability and /polymorph. lots of room to play around with alternate techniques, even as a melee char

Can someone tell me about choosing when to train which skills? Like if I'm playing something super simple like Kobold Berserker.

Get your weapon skill up first. A few levels is fine until you can hit at a reasonable rate. Then train your armor or dodging skills to ensure you can survive a bit longer. If fighting is still low, get a few levels in that. Then get your weapon skill up to the level it needs to be to get the minimum attack delay. Check the weapon to find out what that is.

Thanks, that helped me with my best attempt yet.

Got to Floor 6 of the Lair. It was getting scary so I read a scroll of teleportation and ended up in a tight cave with a bunch of death yaks on one side, and a catoblepas on two others. Welp.

But he'll be back soon?

EDIT: Is there any pseudo-ID, or are magic weapons and armor always described as 'runed' or 'glowing' or whatever?

yes, and artifacts are always described like jewelled or whatever and highlighted white in the inventory. they don't self id tho (unless its an unrand like the plutonium sword). USUALLy wield id'ing is safe but sometimes you wield a weapon with the banish brand oops.
