Forum:Lost Gray Dragon Scale Mail During Ascension Run

In the Wizard's Tower for the first time ever, in my best game so far, I found a blessed scroll of enchant armor. I thought I was wearing my unenchanted cloak on top of my +4 GDSM. I was not. My only source of magic resistance evaporated. I used up all my wishes a long time ago. What should I do? Reverse genocide gray dragons? Brunhilde (talk) 01:56, 17 December 2013 (UTC)

Update: Never mind! Used wand of death on the Rodney every time he showed up and expensive camera to make Death flee. So magic resistance isn't completely essential...Brunhilde (talk) 05:13, 17 December 2013 (UTC)

Well done ascending that game. A lot of players, even experienced ones, would have just #quit after losing their only source of magic resistance, even though NetHack is supposed to be about being resourceful, not just insulating yourself from all danger. For future reference, if you're wearing more than one piece of armor, a ?oEA will pick a piece at random -- it doesn't care that the suit is "under" the cloak, so you might have vaped your GDSM anyway. When enchanting your armor, you should wear only one piece at a time, and you should be on Elbereth or locked in a closet. --Darth l33t (talk) 15:13, 18 December 2013 (UTC)
This is wrong. A scroll of enchant armor won't enchant a shirt or suit of armor with anything worn on top of it. Wooble (talk) 16:03, 18 December 2013 (UTC)
