I created a monster checklist in Excel, sorted by monster type and dungeon floor. I added two useful bits of info - encounter chance if 5 or less, and whether charm resistant. I excluded level-16 monsters, which are all charm resistant. I would be happy to share it with you.

P.S. I just tried to upload the file to the downloads section of this site, but .xls is not a permitted file type. If you would like a copy of the file, PM me with your e-mail address.


Sounds cool. Yeah I just sent you a pm so feel free to share that over if you want. That would make life a heck of a lot easier happydance.gif

Classics are classic, but never mistake nostalgia for superiority. When older is better, it's because it truly is, not just because our perception of it makes it so.

Did you get my monster checklist? I sent it on Sunday.

I understand Fischsemmel's frustration with his Swashbuckler quest. Even with my concerted efforts to fill the confinement, I only have 1 Swashbuckler. The only other charmable monsters of levels 1-3 that I have fewer than 9 of are Tengu (3) and Daemon (4).

I return from every expedition with a few companions to add to confinement. If I find a monster I want early in the expedition, I make a note of where I found it and leave it, hoping it will still be there on the return trip. Unless it is rare, in which case I grab it and head back to town immediately (as I did last night with a pair of Daemons).

Of monsters that are both charmable and questable, I am missing only 24, mostly from levels 8-10. I am starting to get level 10 quests, so I need to keep plugging away - I'm not quest-proof yet.

Once I have confinement filled, maybe I'll start a Ninja!

Oh, yeah I got that when you sent it. I just never replied because I didn't really have much to say. It was all pretty self-explanatory.

Are Daemons really that rare? Now that I think about it I've kind of lost track of how common/rare certain monsters are at earlier floors, since I haven't been around them too long (and I'm being quested for stuff around 10 now more regularly than anything else).

Yes, Daemons are rare. On level 3, the first level where they can appear, only 1 demon encounter in 30 will produce a Daemon. More generally, the demons whose name ends in -meon are much more common than the others at levels 8 and below. I am now seeing Daemons more often in second slot of higher-level demons than in the first slot.

Column H of the comprehensive monster list gives the encounter chance. It is the one piece of info on that table that is not available on the Wiki. I picked it up from the Hendersons site.

I checked my newest party's library for kicks.

Nearly 60 hours played, almost all on 1-7. I've seen 67 daemons! Only 10 air elementals, 11 lunch demons, 6 morguls, 8 swashbucklers, 15 tengu (i spent a lot of time on 1, like 15-20 hours).

(and 1 gibbering yethwa, 1 jubilex, 1 morey bilk, though I don't make a point to visit non-lake areas on 7 or wander around on 8-9)

Everything else on 1-7 I've seen at least 20-25 times minimum, Im pretty sure.

When Aelric reached Nomad 238, I immediately dug up my Pendragon from storage and tried to equip it - and learned that Aelric's stats are too low! To don a Pendragon, you need a minimum of 22 in Int, Wis, and Cha. Since it counts only natural stats, Aelric, with his 19 charisma, will never be able to wear a Pendragon. I'm so bummed!

I checked other high-level items. It looks like the Lamurian Crown is also out of reach for him. He barely has the constitution minimum for some weapons, so if he uses them he'll have to carry a backup weapon in case he get drained for con.

I've started leveling him in Warrior again. I dropped the Vamp Fang and picked up two swords - Vorpal Blade and Avenger. I use the VB to speed up the descent from 1 to 7, and then switch to the Avenger when I go deeper. I switch back to the VB when disarming nasty traps. I just have to remember to cast Electrical Resistance since I'm not carrying the Shield of Defense anymore.
