Yep, been there, done that, ranted and raged about it. There are no second chances unfortunately, you just have to start being careful with the spacebar towards the end of level 44.

Grats on your best character so far and commiserations on his death :(

Don't feel too bad. Everyone misses this quest occasionally. Even if you are being careful, it is easy to go past it when you are in the middle of a princess quest with 12 Archliches or something like that.

Holding down the spacebar is guaranteed to eventually get you killed or ruin your character. If you are doing this, I recommend setting the option to automatically clear more prompts (option set 5). In this case you would have seen "Will you come? Y/N" which isn't very informative, but is better than "Y/N".

I think that the escape key is also safer than the spacebar.

Whatever you are doing, you can review all messages using ^P. so at least you know after the fact what you have missed out on.

I do think, though, that there should be a way to get this quest without being recalled. I think the last time this happened I was clearing out a special level.

Helps if you've come across a couple of experience potions and not glugged them right away, then can reach cLevel 45 at a time of your convenience. If only to avoid frustration ... "You see a Great Wyrm of Law. It is carrying a Longsword (5d5)" and you're 2000 XP from being whisked away. Yes, with a bit of a wriggle you can still be cutting off Maeglin's head with it - but might fail to put on the Cap of Thinking in time to realize that :(

The escape key's really just as bad. I just failed this quest because of this :cry:. Honestly I wouldn't have a lot of qualms about messing with some files to get this back if that's possible. But it's not like the god quest where there's a lua file for it (my automatizer destroyed the relic piece on the fourth quest somehow and I got kinda mad about losing those skillpoints). Is there any way to save Gondolin after this?

I seem to have gotten the quest back. Very cheap, but come on! Does it have to be so easy to miss? Would calling flush() before printing messages work, or does flush() only clear inputs?

I have had the same thing happen with Princess/FF quests a couple of times. Worst was when a Mage accidentally got Barehand Combat from a FF quest, which broke all of my spellcasting macros. At least it wasn't Antimagic.

You can go even further and name the spell you want to cast. That way it doesn't even matter if it's in a book or inscribed on an item. Just use m@Cast a spell\r@Manathrust\r (for example).

OK, have now just had another character reach level 45. This time I said yes (I was in Moria at the time).
So it took me back to the surface above Moria, I walked to Gondolin and see now there is another > as well as the troll one (which I have not done yet). So is this just like a normal quest, I can leave it and do it at my leisure. Or do I need to do this right now?

You can leave it as long as you like (provided of course that you don't destroy Gondolin by wearing the Ring).
