Record of a Noobie's Growth vol 2

So close yet so far away is the feeling after my latest final death. The character this time around wad my Level 43 Dwarf Bulwark who met final death trying to topple his first arc pride. From what I gather that means I made it 4/5 though the base campaign! With only my second character no less!

His first death was due to drowning in the lake as no bubbles spawned close to the stairway you use to enter the ruins. So in short RNG screwed but that happens in rougelike.

The next one happened in Reknor to a rare troll who some how caused my encumbrance to spike, locking me in place, while several AOEs stacked doling over 600 damage in turn. When I died it happened so suddenly I wasn't sure how it happened a first. Not sure how I could have prevented it to be honest.

The next two happened when I tried taking on the dragon vault in Vor Armory. I was an idiot for opening it in the first place seeing as I just barely survived clearing out the armory in the first place despite having 60+ cold and fire resistance. That said, even at level 35 at the time, I still felt I could take those dragons if could fight them one at a time. I withdrew and planned to try again after a few orc prides fell.

Next was in Ruins of Tennin where I was crit spiked by six Undead. Again not much could have been done to stop it.

And the last two were the Necromancer pride. After looking over I figure they were due to me having relatively low blight resistance and as soon as I entered I got swarmed by 5 necromancer and a corrupter in a large room. Should have backed out and tried a different pride. Maybe grind farportal dungeons for a few levels.

Here is his character log if youwant to take a look: https://te4.org/characters/246275/tome/19ea4ba4-eff6-4bf3-8e45-df3266bf2667

In the end I feel I did far better than I should have given my world lack of experience but I am quite happy with how things went. I will say dwarf bulwarks or borderline overpowered in normal difficulty, especially if you have high HP regen.

During the course this play through I unlocked almost all the races in the default campaign with the exception of the ghoul and the Doom elf as well as majority of the classes. I still need to unlock psychic classes but that can come later.

My next class I'm thinking about is Alchemist and probably halfling when given how much they feature in the lore

This is insane

who would've taught we could blog here

Roguelike Rage

Does anyone else find this genre of games absolutely infuriating? I don't think I've ever gotten more mad at a game than when I lose a good character in TOME or DCSS, etc. In fact multiple times I've deleted TOME and DCSS right after losing a character loaded with good uniques/randarts, lol. Fuck these games man, even the worst League of Legends game I ever have makes me less mad.

I have just bought full bundle!

I am now a kind of subscriber!

Yes you can blog!

You can blog illegible, you can.

WON THE GAME

after playing this game for who knows how long, finally won (normal roguelike) for the first time on a gimmicky anorithil named MOONBEAM!

this is my only roguelike win ever in any of the main roguelikes after playing those for years too (ADOM, soupcrawl)

heck yeah

post-game: took out atamathon using an awakened staff opener without much difficulty but got swiped left by linaniil. rip.

RNG

... sometimes makes want to die. On the inside, you know?

First time playing ToME, interesting, confusing, fun.

I've started to play ToME and I've got no idea what I'm doing. I'm using experience from other RPG's to build characters. I notice I need to run away more often. I don't understand everything that is going on. Or how to build a character for the long run.

I am playing on normal difficulty. Have died plenty of times.
Some areas (despite being lvl 1 ' friendly') are hard for me to finish (especially final boss). Sometimes feels I'm missing part of my build to do it.
And what if I run, where can I go level instead... That's a question I'd like the answer to.

Nihgtmare clear is near

At last I can reach last bosses. But defeated. I will win next time.

Loving the game so far!

I just started this game and I'm hooked, I only wish I could play it from mobile when on the road or on the go so I can play it more! :)

Feel free to stop by and say hi, give a few pointers if youd like!
