Any knockback will do; you just need to be able to punch some holes in the walls for exploration purposes. If you can get your hands on ENDISWAL, it should be a relatively straightforward dungeon, since the Vampire really doesn't care about wasting exploration space and only has to be mindful of conserving popcorn.

Yeah, I went with Platemail and the Bear Mace.

Good show Nurator. What preps did you use for those runs?

I don't think that Vampire Labyrinth should be that hard. As long as you have ENDISWALL, or you just prep Binlor.

Prepping Binlor would be really silly as a Vampire :)

Bear Mace works fine.

Wow.

I need to play more Vamps. I keep forgetting they can't use gods.

I used Dwarfen Gauntlets, Smuggler Den, no God, Extra Attack Boosters, Perseverance Badge, Elite Items+Transloc and
Can of Whupaz, Reflex and Quicksilver (and Mana/Health) Potions.

I used excessive EM play to increase my maxhp/kill the first boss with fireballs with clearance.

In the elf playthrough, I converted to Dracul for the last boss, with dwarf I forgot my transloc and found a amulet of yendor at the last boss^^ That was awesome :D

Actually, Earthmother in curse-world sounds great; clearance to get rid of the cursing plants and to give you the post-exploration mana regeneration that is so necessary on the Oasis.

And you get Curse Removal when you deal Corrosion to enemies AND when you use Imawal on an enemy(even a curse bearer!)
