First Victory! Grey Elven Healer
I've been playing ADOM for almost a decade now and I finally did it.
I've finished the game before with save-scumming, but this is my first legit win.
I's been playing GE Healers for a while with limited success until I rolled a raven born GE healer named Protolo.
Got the Terinyo quests but skipped bandit village until I had something better than a scalpel. went to SMC and got goblin rockthrower as first kill also picked up a quarter staff which I used until I got a crude spear . Exits were generated close to each other for easy access to UD.
After playing carefully and levelling up fairly quickly, I got pickpockets from yergius and finally earned enough for detect traps. Did Terinyo quests and decended through UD. Surge of power on UD2 gave me scorched spear. Decided on some risky pool-sipping and got teleportitis, but was lucky and found blink dogs nearby. Teleport became very useful. Reached dwarftown and did Dwarf quests. Found fantastic herbs on the level below Dwarftown. Basically everything on one level. Used morgia and moss to raise stats.
At some point I found a spellbook of invisibility and ring of immunity, which really helped throughout the game.Went to pyramid, where a scroll of familiar something came in handy. summoned a minotaur mage, which took care of the other mobs while I hammered on Rehetep. Mummy wrap was my first decent armour. Around this time I got got lucky and started find quite a few potions of gain attributes.Also found helm of water breathing and used it to find water cave. Sent blup home and went to darkforge with VDDL teleport wand. Pool-sipped for wish for AoLS. No other goodies worth it. Hit level 18 and recieved RCT.
Saved kelly, used teleport book extensively for getting around. Also pick-pocketed RoDS on graveyard level below DT. Used for Rings of ice. Cleared tower, cleared temples crowned neutral and got shirt of the saints. Nothing worth getting in casino (didn't even play machines). Tried to kill Sharad Waardur, but chickened out. Decended to D49 and got crown of leadership as useless gift. Went to D50, Dug sneakily into leaver rooms and blasted with wand of destruction. Prayed a couple of times while balors were hammering me and found a RoDS, which I used for SoCR. Left Dungeon, cleared corruption with Unicorn and left.
Skipped the library and blue dragon caves. Encountered Giant Vault and Greater Undead Vault, but didn't have anything worth battling for.
