I think the ring of Ice and staff of Magi aren't of any worth to me. Please
take a look and let me know if I'm not wearing something I obviously should.

Thank you!

Berserk lowers your AC by 10 but increases your chance to hit by 10
(also makes criticals slightly more likely).

If you use the berserk a lot, I probably would wait to switch until you
can keep 18/200 con with Angrist. Try out angrist though, and see how
you like it.

Did you factor in the Axe of Hurin's activation for berserk? I can't ever
remember how that helps me, I think it hurts AC but ups something else.

RNG has apparently been stingy with dex potions during his stat gain
thus far.

Better yet, just wait for some dex potions to come along. And remember
to check the black market -- for dex potions.

And dex bonus.

What's with these? They're worthless. Destroy.

This is quite useful if you are an archer, so that the lost AC doesn't
matter. +48 to hit with bows means that a lot more of your arrows will
hit the dracoliches and Great Wyrms before you get breathed on.

Yes it has. Should I bother heading back up to levels where stat potions
are more likely to show up, or just keep begging at the black market? Also,
how long do you need to be down in the dungeon before new items show up at
the black market, till you clear out one or two levels?

Thanks again,
John G.
