My first real run with a Mage. It's much harder than it needs to be because there are locked doors without keys on multiple depths. I noticed it on depth 3 or so and figured I'd come back once I had ID'd Scroll of Magic Mapping. I eventually did so on depth 12, which revealed two locked doors without keys. So I took a screenshot.
What am I missing? I was under the impression that - and this has been the case in every other run through I have played - there are always keys for every locked door on a depth.
It's frustrating because I have the makings of a great run but I have been shorted on food and missed multiple wells due to this problem. I've seen it on three depths so far out of 16.
For the record I just died on depth 18 to a fire elemental because fire elementals are the one weakness in my build. +6 wand of Firebolt, +2 wand of Telekinesis, +1 wand of blink, wand of slowness. And a +2 Venomous glaive! My armor was crap though. Rings were +2 Sateity and +1 Detection (not great). The wand combos were amazing though. See monster: Slow it, set it on fire and use TK to push it away. Or Slow it, set it on fire and Blink away. Too great. But I had to slug it out with fire elementals and I only had Chainmail +2 (maybe should have used more upgrade scrolls on the armor; I died holding 3 of them waiting to find Plate), so every time I saw a FE I used 2-3 Heal pots.
Given its name (“pit” is already used in Level for chasm cells), maybe is this room intended to be reached through a chasm from the floor above (then exited with the key in it)?
I’ll check the code too in order to be confirm/infirm my guess, but it’s what its name makes me think about it.
Last time I had that happen I went to the floor above which had a chasm and jumped in. Took a few attempts into different chasms, but one of them landed me in the room. I can confirm that the key is in there.
The chasm that gets you into the room is quite specific looking. Then in the room is a skelliton with a pile of stuff including the key. Only problem is I ran into the unlockable room a few times. Dont know how to get into it when it is level 1
