I just won a DDBe.  They're probably the easiest combo in the game because you have damage shaving and virtually unlimited heal wounds.

I still find annoying you can't lower the hunger impact of the divine abilities like you can do with the hunger from spells with your Spellcasting+Int

Not true, my most recent run ran out of piety 2 floors before Zot:5 and got fried by an Orb of fire.

You ran out of piety and MP?  Considering you can just pump Evo to get more MP that sounds like quite an achievement.

MP? You'd have to elaborate on that.
I was running a DDBe of Trog and ran out of piety, wand charges and potions.

>wand charges
Oh...

Berserkers have very little need for MP so you can go ahead and spend it all on wand charges.  Between Trog's Hand and that you almost certainly will not run out.

Edit: wrong word entirely

Yeah I feel silly for realizing that while drunk, when I would have needed that as a sober person.
Oh well some day I'll certainly get that rune, this shall be my ambition.

For the record, this was my character:

http://crawl.develz.org/morgues/trunk/Leafsnail/morgue-Leafsnail-20130930-203157.txt

I actually had 5MP left, it was cut in three by antimagic.  I used Device Recharging 36 times, apparently.

0.14 what? I just downloaded stable 0.12 from the site so shouldn't trunk only be 0.13?

Ghoul seemed like a suitably fun and viable race that wasn't a minotaur, so I started one that rolls with Kiku. Just got him up to lair, feels like Troll-lite thus far. I'll probably dabble a bit in necromancy eventually, regeneration and agony seem neat. The food mechanic is pretty cool.

Trying to run a deep dwarf berserker, i have some questions :

- to increase my MP stock in order to recharge, i'm training spellcasting too, and of course Trog constantly tells me he does not like that and i feel ashamed or something.
Does it impact on the faith gain ?

- to spare the wand as much as possible, i regularly have to use Trog Hands, it has an important impact in my faith gain as i have yet to ran into 3 stars , even went back to 1 at some point despite i kill things everywhere and sacrifice constantly.
And i have an amulet of faith on top of this. So is amulet of faith nerfed to useless point in recent crawl version, or is previous point a bigger impact on faith gain than i thought ?

Not a question, but an observation about the most annoying part of Crawl gameplay to me, the "hungry" game.

Annoyingly Trog Hand has a hunger impact too, meaning that my character between Trog Hand, Berserk and the high hunger increase that is unfortunately part of Crawl gameplay, he's nearly constantly "Hungry" or "Very Hungry", and i can't really see how to not use Trog Hand and Berserk as both abilities have saved my character many times so far.

And with the recent nerf of butchered food nutrition point (because they removed nausea) does not help, you eat out of hungry, press O to autoexplore and in 5 seconds you're hungry again.

I wish Sustain/Gourmand amulets rings were more common, they make the "hunger" game so much bearable than what is the default.
A pity Mummy are so crippled in skills and Djinns are so easy to lose.

Train evo, not spellcasting.  You have a +4 apt in it, it's actually useful and Trog doesn't mind it.  You won't starve to death because there is way more food than you need in the game.  Use the wand until Trog gives you a good weapon, after that you can spend piety at will.

Although your piety problems probably come from training spellcasting.

Your MP is boosted by one of evo, invo and spellcasting by the way - whichever's highest.
