Legend. Absolute legend. It is the place we know, we love, we sing song's about. If you haven't been to Angband then what's stopping you?

- I know there are two entrances. Under Lothorien and Khazad Dum town's with a depth of -3350 to -6350.

What do you Know? What to watch out for? What can i expect? What items are needed?
What resistances are recommended? What will kill me the most?
Whats the main Uniques Bosses that can spawn or I need to kill?
Share the Knowledge ><

Angband starts where Mordor ends, so first levels are similar to Mordor. Climbing set is useless as there are no mountains. About -1000 The Destroyer starts to appear (can be dangerous-it is undetectable by ESP). Also unmakers spawn quite often. And if you have killed Sauron- Melkor will appear at -1700 :)

The layout is pretty simple. There won't be any trees or mountains, just "." and "#". You can encounter most of the remaining uniques as early as -50, and you can grind -50ft until about level 48 or so. Great Wyrms are relatively common even at low depths so I recommend having a large health pool before coming here.

You can enter from either Khazad Dum or Lothlorien. Going AFK in either city is suicide, as dangerous monsters like Grand Swordmasters are known to appear in both. They seem to appear much more frequently in Khazad Dum, but the dungeon entrance is relatively safe compared to Lothlorien where it's out in the open. For this reason I personally recommend Khazad Dum, just recall to Gondolin whenever you want to sell or buy stuff and enter from the left each time.

Worth noting you don't need to be able to mountainwalk to get to Angband in Khazad Dum, if you enter from the right location you will clip past the mountains and appear at the entrance.

I just wanna add: this is scary place :) And its also totally new game. TomeNET could be divided as pre-Angband and Angband. May be there is something behind Angband (CP & etc), but I wasn't there yet... For Angband I'm pretty sure. This is just huge graveyard of innumerous heroes :twisted:
