Vitreal is on a distinguished road
Poison resistance?

im down to 1650' in the dungeon on my character vitreal. first time i've ever been this far. With all my stuff im pretty much a juggernaut. unless its air hounds from a distance. Hence my dillema. I need poison resist and i need it badly.

About when can i expect ANYTHING to show up with pois resists that will tip the scales in my favor and allow me to dive deeper. cuz right now i can't risk running into something big and nasty.

help, comments, and info much appreciated.

I wouldn't really bother with air hounds, just leave them alone if they're not in the way of something important, i.e stairs. They don't drop anything and the xp isn't worth the risk if you lack the resistance. Rings of rPois are native to 2000' if I remember correctly, if you really want the resist your best bet would be scavenging that depth until a ring (or, by chance, something else with rPois) turns up.

Personally, I would just dive deeper and hope something turns up. Just detect often to avoid big poison breathers, your nearest threats are the drolem and greater basilisk which are native to 2200' and 2250'. Just detect often and watch your back!

thanks. i was going to sit around in 1650 until i found something but ill just hazard my way to 2000 and sit around in there. be a little away from the drolems as to prevent runnin into them so often.

There are drolems starting from 1750' or so, but they are very rare. (First only in Vaults; at 2000 the can appear as out of depth monsters, though rarely.
