Well I'm back at Mordor again, and after a day of playing a full party, i decided to try soloing a good human (with mage emphasis, I guess, I've never really played mage much).

I wasn't too sure how to approach the earliest levels. I was a bit concerned about age since I'm a human and won't have thief to (fully) reduce damage taken and withering, and I won't have healer to make it easier to top off before taking the stairs. But I ended up taking stats to get into sorcerer right away.

I started working up nomad levels with shock, since my 6-strength bronze sword was not very effective... laugh.gif. It was slow going for a while but once I got nomad up into the teens I had enough hp that a bit of damage barely aged me when I went to town, and my sorc spells were letting me work through the first floor pretty well.

I got stuck with some rough quests and against my usual wishes I had to forfeit one (robe of insight at like 25 nomad). Oh well. It didn't even help my hits cause I'm ignoring the OLP since grinding that many tomes of endurance at level 1-5 drives me bonkers. And I'll be so high level eventually anyway that I'll hit 999 hp besides.

After 4 hours or so I've gotten nomad to 30, sorc in the 24ish range, and I decided to add mage, which is now at 15, to start getting minor heal action in.


I haven't been too annoyed at no CoO yet, but scavenger is next on my list even though it'll need like 30 levels before it's cheap enough to use without lots of town trips to reset mana.

Long term, I'm envisioning lots of warrior, LOTS of scavenger, and quite a bit of mage and sorc, with a dip into seeker for some basic exploration skills. I'm hoping the lower xp requirement as a human will basically make warrior a "free" guild compared to my other idea of gnome, which would have been leveling in seeker for melee potential.


Gotta run, more to come later!
