DiabloRL 0.5.0: Sorcerer [YASD]+[YAVP]
« on: May 21, 2013, 05:47 »

Wouldn't have thought it possible: This is even better than the original Diablo. Very cool game. Also more fast-paced, even though turn based.

Sorcerer is quite powerful, because of manashield - until you run into too many fireimmune monsters. Since lightning spells are not implemented yet, the only way to deal with them is melee + golem + stone curse (stone curse wears off in this version when you attack the monster, but still can be used to block enemies you aren't dealing with at the moment), which is very tedious. So I started teleporting around --> YASD.

Linux version (64bit) worked fine, but I got a crash when I turned sound on, so I switched to windows + wine for the time being.

stone curse wears off in this version when you attack the monster
I don't think it was like that in the original diablo.. It should stay on for a certain amount of turns depending on the spell level and not be affected by other attacks.

I also noticed that all the 0.5.0 postmortem's show killed 0 Hellspawn.. Shouldn't that be in the hundreds?

Sorcerer sounds challenging, congrats on getting as far as you did. ;)

SC is obviously bugged. Period.

Was reported shortly before the release, but not fixed yet.

Thx. Actually I found it quite easy until fireimmunes started showing up. Just pump most of your points in mana. You will find enough books of firebolt to make it quite powerful, so for quite a while you can oneshot almost everything. Once you find manashield (staff or scrolls are also good for the beginning), also your defensive worries are gone. (I used a scroll of manashield for leoric, since I didn't have the spell yet).
So until you hit the caves it goes really well. Then the game switches from quite easy to very hard, since there is just no good way for a sorcerer to deal with fireimmunes (Golem + stone curse is possible, but you have to take it very slowly and it is not much fun).
Once there are lightning spells, this will be really cool.

Or save some points for Dexterity and Strength, and get a <insert name> bow of lightning (+6 to +10 lightning dmg). Then get yourself some cover, use the lava lakes and fences and it's back to easy ;)

The real challenge for a sorcerer will come with HELL levels on HELL difficulty, since Advocates will probably deal TONS of damage and be immune to ALL spells ;)

There are Flash scrolls, so there may be spellbooks as well. This should be working as long as Flash is working (which I doubt anyway :P ).
Alternatively, one could get a bow or other weapon and just whack everything (like I did against Warlord of Blood in original).

Yes there is Book of Flash, but it's very rare. The damage is lower than Firebolt, manacost is higher, and many monsters are magic immune too.

I indeed had overlooked the flash spell earlier, so I tried it out. The flash spell is quite rare, but Adria sells it and Adria also restocks when saving and loading (like in the original diablo), so no problem there. The lava lords are immune to magic, so no luck there, but they go down quickly to the golem. However the flayed ones, which were the major pain in the ass before, are merely resistant to magic and so can be killed with flash. At the end they went down after about three casts of flash. I included a screenshot of the spellbook at the end of the game, so you can see that at higher levels flash does quite decent damage (about on par with fireball). It also is not too expensive.

Many thanks for the hint!

No problem.

I hope that Flash damage is fixed and area effect not-so-bugged as in original Diablo 1. We do not need to copy Diablo bugs into roguelike, Kornel, do we? :)

I think this bug is not present in diablorl. I didn't notice any position dependency on the damage.
