You hit Uriel, Angel of Fire.
You hit Uriel, Angel of Fire.
You hit Uriel, Angel of Fire.
You hit Uriel, Angel of Fire.
You miss Uriel, Angel of Fire.
You hit Uriel, Angel of Fire.
Uriel, Angel of Fire breathes fire.
You die.
STR: 18/***
DEX: 18/90

[Character Equipment]
k) a Set of Gauntlets of Power (+3,+1) [2,+7] (+5)

[Character Inventory]
h) 25 Potions of Cure Critical Wounds {@q1}

Fighting Uriel with only CCWs... you must be kidding me. Get heals if you want to fight uniques that can breathe fire for 1600 unresisted/533 resisted.
I also see you're using power gloves which leaves you under the 18/100 dex mark. Using agility gloves would give you 1 more bpr without sacrificing too much to-dam...

Probably told that already, but diving below 2k without res confusion is pure suicide.

I also found that dump quite funny, though it's bad luck as well. I wish I had a video of it. One second we see the happy brown @ running along, joining his comrades in battle versus evil, next second, there's 50 angry U's on top of him :)

It's me and Zal standing in the wall there below a demon pit @ 5100 and apparently the Emperor Quylthulg spawned in the room south of us quite short time before Liam who had just recalled to the level after getting some supplies came to join us... I Ctrl+d'd my staff of detect invisible and that's that :)
