New episode! https://youtu.be/m7L8O3nljsI
I'm trying to get a video up every week, doing a whole "Mordor Monday" type thing, since that's when my schedule is open enough for regular recording sessions. Still gonna be doing off-screen grinding between parts, though. If I keep at it then I'll eventually finish this game!

So I'm almost 200 sorc right now, and found a Vampire Fang, which should help a lot. I switched up my equipment and now floor 9 isn't too big of a threat (unless I run into something like Mundragons, who CAN'T BE CHARMED AT FULL HP by the purple sash, meaning they're practically guaranteed to deal a ton of damage with breath attacks). Floor 10 is a different story, especially if I run into Lava Giants or the like.

Man, it feels weird mapping a dungeon without looking at the dungeon map again. I was glad I remembered what the Giant King room looked like or I would have blundered into it and gotten myself obliterated. This is the time I should probably keep some healing items in my inventory again.

Just an average nomad trying to figure out how Mordor really works.

I've also taken the liberty of recording some videos of Mordor: Depths of Dejenol!

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.

I see the problem. The average "damage" from a Purple Sash is just 142 hp (range 90-194), while Mundragons average 165 hp (range 124-206). It looks like the sash should work on a Mundragon about 1 time in 4. Paralyzing Death is the cheapest spell that will be effective against Mundragons for a level-200 Sorcerer.

1 in 4, eh? Yeah I'm already kind of missing my white sashes laugh.gif, they stopped being effective awhile ago but at least they were good area clear for weaker mobs like tiger sharks. Still, 94-194 isn't a terrible range. If only the bind of the spell wasn't garbage it would actually be pretty useful for bringing along floor 6-7 dragons.

Oh wait I'm Good aligned, which is probably why these dragons break bind levels so easy - they're evil, aren't they?

Of 18 kinds of dragons, 1 is good, 10 are neutral, and 7 are evil. But I don't think alignment is a factor in breaking binding.
