Where is something that will give me fire immunity? I searched the board, but found nothing because of the wipe. I'm a level 38 loremaster in Glaurangs body and I can't get any farther without fire immunity, so, where is some artifact that will give it to me? (sorry, I've only gotten this far once before, a long long time ago.)

There is a guaranteed artifact in Angband in the Dim Gates, but that level is going to be pretty hard without fire immunity.

Your best bet is to find the Ring of Flare. It isn't very rare and should show up starting around level 50. Another possibility is a randart armor or cloak.

Trone at the bottom of Sacred Land of Mountains will leave behind his thunderlord jacket which has Fire Immunity among other things.

If you are really, really, *really* desperate; you can quaff lots of corruption potions. One of the corruptions (actually two of them now that I think about it...) gives fire immunity.

Thanks for the reply's. I just dived all the way down to Trone (I wasn't too far from him), and yep, he has fire immunity. Thanks.

I'm finding potions of corruption everywhere, but I'm not gonna risk getting Troll blood and therefore aggrevating my high dragon army.

I once got to the Dim Gates with my only winning character, a sorceror, that level was insane. Chain-summoning uniques, I thought Morgoth and his chain-summoning balrogs was nothing compared to that.

I'm still looking for the Ring of Flare, I haven't found it yet. Even though I cleared out Erebor, Land of Mountains, and Moria, and Cirith Ungol.

Dim Gates is trivial if you have some method of swapping position (Recall or Flare). I guess Antimagic would make it easy also.

Otherwise it is quite painful. Usually I skip it.

The Ring of Flare usually turns up for me somewhere during Mordor - but am a fumblefingers junkie so probably spend quite a bit of time toiling stubbornly through it and wishing I wasn't.

Well, yet another character dead. Time to start over. I relish a difficult level, so I die often.

Dim Gates.. such a lovely place.

I went in there with my possessor on Sarkos body, 4k hp +70 speed and ring of Flare.

I figured that if I had diffuculty I would just use the ring to take me to the end, grab the swag and leave. After all it only costs 13 mana to use the swap skill and the 17 I had would surely be enough right?

Wrong..

Things went pear shaped with summoning going out of control, I activated the ring, selected the target to swap with and noticed that targetting it had cost me 8 of my valuable spellpoints leaving me with not enough to swap with.

Oh bugger.. :x

Back to the drawing board.

If you don't have enough spellpoints, abilities use your hit points instead. I've had many a wimpy character flee a battle and repeatedly use the berserk ability from the Helm of Hammerhand. Once the sp are used up it uses hp, but the ability heals more hp than it uses. So repeated uses can somewhat quickly get the character back at full and ready to return to the melee.

I think I must be missing something, because Flare already provides fire immunity... :?

Oh.. D'OH! :x

The worst thing about it is, I actually knew that at one point but it completely slipped my mind.
