Missile attacks


The game seems to favor melee (the Blade of Leaping Gold gives +3 Attacks and most Runes
seemed to be designed for bladed weapons) so
even exchanging the Elf skill Dodge for the
skill Rapid Shot(+1 Attack with missiles)
at BL 1 doesn't help much.
Anybody have ideas or strategies to help the Elf. [sign in to see URL]!! emoticon

Re: Missile attacks


I like the Elf the way he is. Since he begins the game with a bow and a sword and can usually hit with the bow 50% of the time when he actually shoots, AND that he automatically can escape pinning to move so that he can shoot -- all make me think he is well-equipped in this way. On the other hand, his high Weapon Skill makes him fairly decent in melee combat as well. The versatility is great! emoticon

Once he is able to acquire his Elf-only equipment in an Elf Quarter, he becomes more and more amazing in my opinion.

Re: Missile attacks


i agree with Old Warrior on this.

as he levels he can also get leap so even if he is trapped by positioning as long as there is space somewhere he can normally get to it.

plus bow of loren.
statistically unlikely but my groups have always found loads of these, even when now using a D100 objective room item table.

my current group has found 3 so far, although we have had 5 elves in total, never more than one at a time!

most of my posts may run into essay length. I find that for a lot of queries/feedback context is important and that is why this happens more often than not.

have a great day :D

Re: Missile attacks


Thanx for the replies!

Bow of Loren with Rapid Fire skill and
Rapid Fire Bracelets would be killer! 3 Attacks!(that's legal, right?)

Also found an expanded Elf Quarter by
Peter Haresnape* at The Museum. U can put
enchantments on your Elf bow just like the
Dwarf and his axe.(Shhh! Don't tell the Dwarf)
He also has one for the Wizard and Dwarf!
(Wizards' Guild and Dwarf Guildmasters)
Just started using them in a new party of Warriors and they're really cool!
(The Museum is one of the websites in the
"WHQ Fan Websites" on the left side of the screen. And if u don't know, now u know...emoticon


*He is in the Contributors box on the left side of the screen
