**King** Bruce Lee, The Brave lvl26 Speedrun

Whelp, this was fun :)


The bow slot is OP. Plain and simple. A while ago, I began to prepare what I would need to truly demonstrate this, and today, we have my evidence. Today, I have killed Morgoth at lvl26.
I could have even done it at a lower level if I had better HP rolls!

I neglected to take a screenshot of his character sheet from before the fight. It is no longer accurate, as he gained 7 levels upon killing Morgoth.

I also plan to upload a few more videos later of my fail'd lvling attempts, and successes, and of The Great Market Cheese secession.

The bow slot in any version based on pre-V3 Angband is overpowered, since you get the full damage from the multiplier AND the brand multiplied. This has been nerfed in post-V3 Angband, and still a ranger feels overpowered.

And as you unfortunately experienced, you don't get the *king* title when killing Morgoth below level 40 (to prevent cheezy party wins), although your win was legit. You just "killed" Morgoth. You could have played your character afterwards, it would have never timed out... but you would never be able to become *king* unless re-trying in a party at level 40+.

Note also that with post-3.0.9 V code, this would have been *much* harder to accomplish as summons would appear near the caster. You would definitely need to kill all the uniques and get a few mass banishment scrolls.
