What should I do?

I've finally gotten some items that I never seem to get all in one game. I'm on GC4 and I have the following:

3x wand of poly
1x wand of mirror
1x wand of cloning
1x or more of everything else I think.

1x scroll of wishing
2x socm
6x soea
5x soew
2x sohm
2x scroll of charging
1x scroll of taming
1x scroll of golem creation
3x repair
a tele and detect material.. and that's all I can remember right now.

arcanite helm +1
arcanite plate +3
amulet of life saving
nymph cloak
levitation belt
iron mace +1 (my ommel tooth mace rotted on me.. heh)
octiron shield +2
lots of rings. Using a searching and fire resistance right now.
gauntlets of str +2
dragon hide boots +1
And an ommel armor I've been holding on to for some reason.

The furthest I've ever gotten is one level past enner beast, and I'm on GC4 now. What should I do to make sure my char has a good shot of going really far this time? I don't know how many charges the wands of cloning/mirror have, but with the 2 charging scrolls, I figure I can create a mountain of scrolls. Should I clone/mirror the scrolls and go buckwild boosting my equipment up? or should I socm body parts? I have over 50 int/wis. I'm thinking of wishing up an amulet of esp, and then creating mass soea/soew/sohm scrolls to try and make every item super powerful. But I'm worried that will backfire and just make super strong monsters start appearing, I've only got 64hp. I've been thinking about this all day, lol, I don't want to mess up. Is there anything essential I should do? Or just shut up, stop thinking, and play the game?

You need more HP to safely face enner, pray to mellis and seges (school food then cure poison) Your armor is good enough already to take on enner.how did you get such high wis and int? Sci talk? Ommel cerumen? go talk to the dolphins to boost Intwis to 120+ then with ESP you can see whole levels of monsters. I always boost Cloak of Fire Resist and elect resist to + 5 and with your INT youcan change all your armour to GEF/Valpurium but with only 64 HP you are going to get one shotted. get boots of dex and gloves of strength and get them to +5. if you get you HP up to 300 then Elpuri is relatively easy. Dont go to 400 unless you are ready to face Ischaldirh. Don't SoCM you limbs with such low HP your totalHP will go up but your head torso groin HP will be low and you will get one shotted by a limbless zombie.

1) Change your limbs to something better by mirroring a socm. I prefer fast materials like golden eagle feather.

2) Enchant your armor up.

3) Wish for either a helmet of intellect (if you need more int) or a helmet of perception (really useful). Enchant/harden it up. Alternatively, wish for a vermis or two to just tear shit up.

You'll be needing an enchanted cloak of electricity resistance and probably fire as well. Get them.

Beyond those basic tips, you need to tailor your vast amount of options to your playstyle. I would personally get dual vermis with some fast limbs and a stock of repair scrolls, but to each his own.

You are making a few big mistakes

Get rid of the two rings. Searching is pointless since you have the belt of levitation. Fire resistance is useless regardless.

Instead wear invisibility & teleport control.

Then get a cloak of fire resistance and a cloak of elec resistance

Use the mirroring/cloning on your enchant/change material scrolls. Make all of your equipment the best possible (golden eagle feather and valpurium for everything). And enchant everything to +5 or even more if you can.

And lastly, get Turox and enchant it. Your iron mace +1 will do nothing against any of the named baddies. I would wish for it if that's the only way you can get it, it will be worth it. It will cause good damage and the explosions will kill of weak creatures that your cloak will protect you from.

I think you used ommel cerumen, cheater?

I suggest phoenix feather for your limbs (although I never tried GEF nor SS for that, however this stuff is stronger so it produces much harder enemies than PF), and then improve your equipment with SoE*/SoCM/SoHM.

Capristo, "Fire resistance is useless" in your post looks strange. I guess you meant ring of fire resistance.

I cast socm on a large chest for the ommel cerumen. *holds out hands for slapping*.

In my defense though, I didn't know it was considered cheating until capristo told me yesterday in a previous post. That being said, I'm going to keep using this game. I feel since it was unintentional it only leaves a minor footnote on my chars history. I try to never cheat in a game until I get through it at least once properly, or am bored with it and sure I'll never play again, but I'll make exceptions if it was accidental or through ignorance.

Excellent tips too, just what I was looking for. Thanks everyone.

Well, I would hardly call that a minor footnote. That can easily make your character powerful enough to beat the game heh.
