I just beat Zangband a little while ago. Nothing much to say about the final fight. I overprepared and it wasn't too interesting. The final boss functions almost identically to Morgoth and even drops the same loot. He has a haste spell now but it's more of a neccessity than a threat as speed equipment is much more common in this game. He also has a few breath attacks which aren't too scary with the proper resistances. I don't think he cast a single attack spell the whole fight, and it went on for a decent while. He also summoned a few times but, since my guy was so fast, they didn't ammount to much. There is also a pretty dumb oversight in which the final boss can't even attack you if you stand on a rune of protection. I expected it to help me out a little bit, not cheese the whole fight! I got off once I noticed though. It was easy enough anyway with the crazy randart drops and damage I was doing. Not that I am complaining. The artifact hunting really made the game. Overall it was very fun with a lot to do. A great improvement to Angband in my opinion. There is some more content and uniques left to kill but I think that will be all for me.
If I can figure out where this thing puts your character dumps I might post my guy's final stuff.
