          destroyed in attack by the forces of chaos, and you now
          seek vengeance.

A berserker I'm running, with ironman unusual rooms on. Anyone know how long it takes to get dual wielding proficiency up? It seems to be taking forever.

On another note, I've recieved a compiled version of heng 1.7.0 from wacko_chipmunk, which I have uploaded to my website, Feel free to download it there; since apparently the current maintainer of heng has stopped developing the game, it probably won't appear on the hengband site anytime soon.

In that early stage, it's kinda catch22. Your skill only raises when you hit something, but you only rarely hit something in the first place. Plus the skill only raises if you hit a monster with a minimum level (i.e lvl 15 for Beginner). More (spoily) information can be found here:

Also your guisarme is probably too heavy for an offhand weapon. Not being an expert but I think it's a lill too early to bother with dual wielding. I'd wait till I have a decent offhand weapon (light, high toHit bonus).

Thanks for the info about dual wielding; maybe now with my double rings of accuracy I can hit some higher level monsters.
CL:26 DL:1
Wow, 10 levels since I made a post and my character still alive. That's a record for me. Anyway, still working on the dual wielding skill, hopefully my new weapons will work better than my old combo, and with my ='s of accuracy I can actually hit stuff now.
Had a little problem with accuracy before this, when a black wraith took me down to level 1 because I couldn't hit him, so I had to unwield my second weapon, which probably cost me a good bit of dual wield XP. Fortunately that will no longer be a problem (hopefully), so I can eventually improve my skill and use some other rings. Found a couple of decent arts, which help, but the only uniques I've taken down have been in the arena. I'm also kind of at a standstill there, since my next opponent is the Iron Lich, which took one of my previous characters down to -700HP from a fire breath. Have done a few quests which I was able to finish with almost no trouble, and I'll probably be doing the first 2 Angwil quests soon, but I'm still a little worried about some of the other quests, so I'll wait on those till I'm stronger. Hopefully my good luck will continue, and my next post will not be a dead char dump.

Found a nice Pattern Weapon that actually gives me a positive to-hit value. Also found some new arts, which have been useful. Highest unique so far is Judge Fire, who I found locked in a cell in a vault. I broke him out, nearly killed him, and then he blinked away. When I used detection to look for him, I found a shoggoth instead, and he came at me while I was hallucinating, but I was able to kill him anyway. I've been pretty lucky finding !o Healing(I think I found three in the Angwil demon quest), so that will help later on.

Wow, this char's still alive. This is probably my best character in a long time. Basically what I'm doing right now is scumming for vaults with limited fighting space and lots of excellents. I get good Xp, I am able to slay comparatively big uniques in one on one combat, and I make a lot of money. I'm running a bit low on !oHealing again due to a large battle involving Kavlax, Mother Hydra, and a high priest, but I survived it and got a few nice items.
Found Ishikawa Goemon, who dropped Zantetsuken, which is nice except for the fact that it keeps talking to me whenever I kill stuff, and it won't attack female monsters (which almost became a serious problem in a vault with an enchantress and Jasra.) Other than that, I can kill most elastic monsters in one round with my other weapon, so not much of a problem there. I would do more quests, except the last time I actually tried any of them was a long time ago and I have almost no memory of what they were like, so I don't know how to prepare for them. I'm probably going to keep working with the vault scumming in angband until I'm fairly powerful and have knocked off some more uniques.
Oh, btw, for a real fun time go into the Dragon's cave with unusual rooms on and cast detect monsters, then count how many times you start to hallucinate before the more prompts go away.

Found Twilight in a vault, would be wielding it except for the massive defensive penalties it gives (aggravate, curse of Topi Ylinen, -50AC). Maybe if I can work Dasai into my kit I'd wear it.
Couple more uniques down now, still annoyed by Zantetsuken's chivalrous obstinance, but hopefully I will find a better weapon soon.
Anybody have any advice for the next few quests(Haunted Housem Cloning Pits, Spawning Pits) that I will be facing?

On 15.10.2005 03:09 wrote:
Buff up a bit more before doing the Cloning Pits, it has a nice reward. But you really will want some form of Chaos resistance before going in (You are actually pretty strong now, and might be able to pull it off, but better to wait a few more levels).

Do not do the Spawning Pits ;-) I've lost many a berserker in there ...

On 15.10.2005 04:33 wrote:
Thanks for the advice, I'll hold off the cloning pits for a while. How about the Haunted house? If I remember correctly from the last time I went there, there were some ipsissimusses(?) that kept summoning stuff, and I had to leave to avoid death, but that was a *long* time ago. Is it ever safe to try Spawning pits, or should I just not do that quest ever?

On 17.10.2005 16:35 wrote:
With a Berserker, no quest is safe! You can never teleport and you have no ranged attacks. This means that if things go wrong, you just die.

In the Haunted House, there are Raal's positioned in the open. You will need to death charge to get to them before they kill you :-)

In the Spawning Pits there are numerous blinky Q's. They will summon and then blink away. Last time I tried this quest with a berserker, I ended up having to face off against a horde of Sky Drakes, Great Wyrms of Balance, and Great Wyrms of Law. Death was immediate!

The Cloning Pits are also dangerous, but the reward justifies the risk. Plus with levitation, you may stay on the chasms and use the trees to block line of sight, so you are not completely out in the open. Still, you will need to shut down the summoners quickly.

The Old Castle actually has some walls that you may tunnel into for a short Antisummoning Corridor. Do so, and let the monsters come to you. This quest is relatively easy for a buffed up berserker, though you will probably want to wait until CL40 so that you have Reflection as you will need to face a bunch of Raal's simultaneously.

Berserkers are very fun to play, but they are also very frustrating. Especially later on in the game. At deeper dungeon levels, one Great Wyrm of Power is all it takes to wreck your day. So be careful, berserkers are much harder to win with then other character classes.

Another piece of advice for the late game is to acquire some form of Antimagic, preferably the Terror Mask. There are a few nasty uniques with the Hand of Doom ability, and your current Saving Throw means you essentially always fail. Nothing like going from 2000 to 1000 hp in a single round to put the fear of god in you ;-)

Good Luck!

CL:35 DL:Castle 20
I am working through a vault in the castle right now; had some trouble with Nidhogg and the Defiler but came out of it ok, without having to use any !ohealing. Now contemplating dealing with a Greater Balrog near the center of the vault. (See my upcoming screenshot) Any advice on this situation would be welcome. Haven't tried anymore quests yet, maybe I will do Cloning pits once I make level 40 or so. Also I am missing poison and chaos resistance, which I don't want to do that quest without.

On 17.10.2005 23:03 wrote:
Thanks for the quest advice blackreaver. I will keep scumming vaults until I have the necessary resists to avoid certain death, since I've spent a decent amount of time on this char and losing him would make me... unhappy.
