MR boots and shield comparison
Posted By: knivetsil, on host

I have a level 18, all-spell-knowing assassin with a natural speed of 5, but is equipped with light armor and boots of speed+1 to bring it up to 7, just enough to hit 3 monsters per turn. He also has 10 on all resistance. He is just beginning to explore level 8. Now I have a couple of questions concerning his equipment.

The first is comparing the shield+2 to cooler shield. Shield+2 gives 5 AC and nothing else. I have this one equipped. Cooler shield gives 5 AC and +5 fire resistance, but takes away 1 speed, bringing my speed down to 6 if I were to equip it. Is the increase in fire resistance worth the decrease in speed?

The second question is comparing Boots of Speed+1 and Boots of Agility+2. Speed +1 gives me 4 AC and 1 extra speed. I have this one equipped. Boots of Agility gives 5 AC and +4 agility. If I equip the agility boots, this will bring my speed down to 6, 5 if I also equip cooler shield. Is the increase in AC and agility worth the decrease in speed?

Thanks for your help.
