So I've got another High Priest Victory (score: 2,198,525). This time, my character was mildly chaotic throughout the game, praying mostly to Silva, Loricatus, Mellis and Cleptia. Got Mjolak pretty early on, which was awesome as it trains arm strength like crazy. Also, the character was swift (no negative traits btw, lucky me) so I ended up with pretty impressive stats for natural limbs. The most notable one was endurance: I ended with 700 hp through cloning ommel snot by the end of the game, although that was just for the sake of it as I had already killed Petrus, Oree and even Ischaldirh by then. I had 545 hp when I killed Izzy which is a lot still. Also, my perception ended up at 61 because I discovered the storage room full of food below the cathedral that contains lots of carrots.

A few notable moments were: the battle against Sherarax, where she fully took 2 out of 4 archangels who were fighting her before falling; a backpack full of gunpowder, that was being used as a cloak by a zombie in the zombie level and exploded after being hit by a burst of energy from Mjolak. That in turn made a wand of teleportation I was carrying explode, which resulted in lumps of burning green flesh all around the level.

I cleared the mage room completely which appeared on level 12, something I haven't seen before. I also managed to enchant Mjolak to +16 through cloning scrolls, obviously. Having been hardened to adamant, Mjoly netted a whopping 23-40 damange and was extremely accurate. I changed its material to valpurium, though, once I got Valpurus' Justifier to be able to double wield. Among nice gifts I recieved from the gods, Loricatus gave me an iron thunder hammer +6 just before taking on Attnam, which I hardened to adamant immediately and, as soon as I could get Valpurus' Justifier from Petrus (before killing him by severing his arm), I double wielded. So I ended up killing Petrus via electrocution from the thunder hammer. Mellis wanted to be helfpul too before the battle of Attnam, and also gave me a gift, only that a helmet of attractivity +5 isn't of much help at that point. Also, Loricatus gave me an ukku gauntlet +10 at one time, pretty crazy, ha!

Notably, Gologr-Dhan couldn't be found at all. I looked for him in every single level with the great range of esp that comes with high int and even detecting sapphire but had no luck. I think he was the only named baddie that didn't spawn.

All in all, great playthrough with a beast of a character.

Thank you guys! I'm glad you liked the screenshots. I had some more I didn't upload, like the one displaying the healing horns I SoCMed to spirit cloth and golden eagle feather to make them lighter, though I never needed to use them. I also changed the material of a strongbox to occultum to make it lighter. I've never had spare cloning charges to spend SoCMs like that before. It felt good haha.
