Just scored my first ascension after ~4 years of playing, done as Wiz-hum-mal-cha. A brief overview of some of my favorite bits:

-Found an early game "oLS on dlvl 5ish. Used up in gehennom when a black dragon disintegrated me while I was polyed into a xorn. (Had SDSM- I prefer it on wizards, since they already have and obscene number of easy to get MR sources)

-Ended up fighting (and killing!)Demogorgon.

-Killed Famine four times.

-Got crowned the Glory of Arioch while trying to get the pass tune. I didn't lower my luck, mostly because I just think getting crowned is kinda cool and don't have that many problems with the boosted prayer tiemout, but also because I wanted the Finger of Death... Which I turned out to find another book of on the next dlv. -.-


Here's hoping it doesn't take me too long to get another! --Drynwyn (talk) 23:05, 26 February 2013 (UTC), the Demigod

Congratulations!

I think your next ascension will not take as long – the first ascension usually takes the longest simply because it takes some time to get sufficiently spoiled.
I agree on the crowning prayer timeout increase not mattering much, especially as by the time you usually get crowned you don't really need to #pray anyway. Of course, finding a spellbook of finger of death just after crowning is basically guaranteed – the random number god likes to play games. :) —bcode talk | mail 00:34, 27 February 2013 (UTC)
