That's one thing I wasn't sure of - whether their attacks were capped.
Also, I just had a VT Vamp run that I had to abandon because floor before the last one was bloodless and it stopped me dead. And I've done in the lizard and the statue and everything else, had platemail, halpmeh, RBS, 9 lvl of bloodsucking, 4 blood cows - ideal setup and everything, but it still killed me. Patches turned out maybe 2 resist hits.
Veto slots - Battlemage Ring, Spoon, Blue Bead, Whurlgarble, Crytal Ball, Heroe's Helm and Mage Plate.
Ideally, I could put whurgarble back in and take out Stone Sigil.
Anyway it's doable. Obviously
And yeah, I don't mind you not sharing stuff and your arguments are fine in general - but can share some and you don't have to go too detailed. If you give us just enough, we vets will know what you're talking about or ask for a specific detail. The mystery strat, for example - it's not something any newbie will be able to copy just by knowing 2 key pieces. If it is we probably know about it allready
(but we never thought of trying it seriously enough)
