I usually carry !DetectInvisible until I have a permenant source of SeeInvis.

Also, what have been your main damage sources after the magic missiles?

at clvl 25 i still favor magic missile when possible since they are so cheap! frost bolt and lightning bolt are reliable if i need more dam per round. just got frost ball and its fail rate is low enough (9%) i can put it to use right away!

elemental breaths fail rates are dropping, down to 30% now. when they drop a little more that will be my preferred attack spell!

I'm starting to wonder how well a cyclops works as a blue mage. The -int would be a pain, but good hps for breathe weapon & you have throw bolder if your spell points run out.

could be interesting... but i really liked your draconian + metamorphosis blue mage idea. because my best blue mage (level 43) i felt like i started reaching depths where my spells werent doing enough damage to uniques

Amusingly I just checked the ladder & the only wins are a cyclops & a spectre (by chris) in Hengband. Anyway, carry on & good luck!

25 teleport to (tengu)
25 breathe light (light hound)
27 fire ball (mario)

went up to zul hoping to check out the merchandise, but saw nothing i could afford. but i killed a mature green dragon while i was there, who dropped a rod of detection. which i'm really enjoying. so it was a fruitful trip after all!

How close do you think you are to learning a Time spell without dying?

(Also, does "teleport to" let you choose which monster to teleport to? Or is it actually teleport-other or teleport?)

27 breathe dark (dark hound)
28 summon demon (ipsissimus)
28 mana bolt (dark elven warlock)
28 cause critical wounds (black knight)
28 fire bolt (fire elemental)

king koopa was outside my range when i cast detection, but my summons found him and must have gotten him angry, so he took it out on me. i didnt have resist fire. my armor was pretty crap really. i did get a speed ring from ubbo sathla

i had a previous blue mage that learned breathe time. it does pretty good damage but the casting cost is very high. ive never got a blue mage far enough to encounter the stop time spell that dio brando uses. i dont know if its possible to learn it, but ive always hoped so!

"teleport to" lets you select a monster and bring it adjacent to you. i dont use it much but maybe i should.

Yeah, it sounds even better than I thought; you might be able to easily split uniques from their packs or counterparts.

Although I guess not with this character; RIP.

(Oh, and did 'Drain Mana' accomplish anything?)

at this stage of the game its more effective to keep the uniques far away and hit them with distance spells. but with the later uniques that have scary entourages, like vecna or tiamat, yeah that might be a great strategy

drain mana heals you a little bit. for this character about 30hp. the cool thing is it wont wake a sleeping monster :-)

Re teleport to. Pretty sure Vecna's entourage tend to be teleport immune. Not sure about Vecna himself
