Any advice for pure spellcaster ?

I usually choose Grey Elven Wizard since I just have to play a pure spellcaster. The farthest I got was level 4 in level 3 dungeon or something. I hate how its almost impossible to outrun a monster  >:(

I am also a big fan of Gray Elven Wizards but my strats are quite different. I usually use talents that maximize my chance of surviving, magical talents are for the most part useless, get Treasure Hunter (need Miser and Alert) instead and aim for Quick->Very Quick->Greased Lightning.

1. Go to Terinyo, equip, learn spell (and cast them from the book to waste PP) and get quests.

2. If you have weak spell like Magic Missile, you might also want to cast it against the wall so you get hurt a bit by the spell, regenerating health trains Healing skill.

3. Go to outlaw village south of Terinyo. Learn pick pocket from the thief. Check if the shop has anything good that will also be affordable once you get the 3000 gold from raider lord quest.

4. Go to SMC (dungeon NW of Terinyo), explore it a little bit to level up but dont stray too far away from the exit stair, this is a special dungeon where monsters are generated at twice your level it quickly gets very dangerous. Get level 4-5 and get out.

5. Kill Kranach the raider lord if the shop in Lawlitonel has something good.

6. After this the best bet is usually to scum the Infinite Dungeon a little bit to collect spellbooks and get a few level up. Otherwise you can try to kill the evil druid but it's usually too risky for wizards since he's immune to elemental spell and quite deadly both in melee and ranged combat (have at least level 10 before tackling him).

7. Go straight to main dungeon (CoC), the first 7-8 levels are pretty easy, ideal for leveling.

Its ADOM for me.

It has real storyline and quests that make sense. Multiple endings and scores of NPCs    with a resemblance of personality. It's probably somewhat closer to a "real" RPG than being roguelike.
