Re: So I assume Legend mode is an actual challenge? YES, it

Legend hints? - 500 gold gets your sword enchanted if you deposit the 500th gold piece at the temple on floor 1. If you do this a lot, you not only get a powerful sword which shortens fights, but you also get a decent idea of the quickest ways up to floor 1, which is No Bad Thing. - He who fights an...

Re: Few questions.

Cue Baldrick skipping up to floor 1 every time he has a couple of magic sackloads of loot. Working like a charm. Legend level needs this, i think.

Re: Ok, I killed the Minotaur! Now What?

Current plan is to skip up to level 1 planting a beacon next to every "up" stairs, then come back, teleport the minotaur away, grab the sword and scarper. Is this advisable?

Re: Ok, I killed the Minotaur! Now What?

Indeed I believe I have found the sword level (on Floor 19 and found a stairs with blue wall round it - not encountered before). Currently level 22 and level 23 is 40,000 experience away. Given this will net me at most two HP, I don't think it's worth waiting around... or is it?

Re: Legend mode: piece of cake

NetHack already has a Zen mode. Until you actually move, nothing happens. I have spent weeks in that state debating what to do before YASDing.

Re: Few questions.

"the floor you're on". So, if one ascends a few floors one has a higher chance of getting blessed?

Re: I don't understand.

Best advice is, don't go down until you're at least two levels higher than the floor you're going to. If you find yourself level 6 on floor 10, that's the problem, rather than the game itself. It is almost always advisable to completely explore each level before descending, because you will need to ...

someone REALLY likes Dark Warriors

I had an interesting one (iPad version). On one of the screens of level 2, EVERY monster had a dark warrior underneath it. When I went up or down a staircase, or through a tunnel and back, the newly generated monsters ALL had a dark warrior underneath them (i.e. when they moved their old location wa...

Re: 2.0 listed on APPUP web page!?

Nooo! I spent two weeks finding this set of stairs down from level 19 with a blue wall around it. I am assuming it's the stairs down to the sword level. I'm not updating until I've tried it out! The only other time I got the sword a dam mage stole it on floor 17 and that was it. This time I'm doing ...
