Brute Force is also a possibility in such a circumstance.

comment In Dungeon Crawl, I've found two good weapons. What should be my weapon-use strategy, and why?
It may not be clear to all that +9 means +9,+9. That's a bunch of damage. Since this build shouldn't be spending xp on spellcasting there should be plenty to get both Polearms and Staves to min delay and therefore be prepared for whatever comes next.

ask on the crawl site -- a +9 trident with speed will generate a lot more damage at minimum delay than an unenchanted lajatang. A demon trident may come along later that's even better.

comment Are there situations where Stamina or Magicka Damage is really useful?
I've played 700+ hours in Skyrim and it never occurred to me to use Fortify Destruction potions in combat with absorb * weapons, as you pointed out in a previous version of this answer. Many thanks.

comment Some excellent items may be permanently destroyed unless I act. What should I do?
That's the correct attitude.

comment Do Drones Alert & Report Your Position To Their Sectopod?
For me, I'm very happy when overwatch actually completes a kill, so killing drones is just fine; they won't repair the 'pod and they won't shoot at me.

comment Is there a way to remove all items from squad members, or exchange items between squad members?
Because of the limitations of the squad select UI, I always back out of the mission and use the View Soldiers function to prep the squad I want before starting the mission. I also try to form up the next squad after a mission completes, although my requirements might change depending on the type of mission. This saves some time and reminds me who is carrying what.

comment How do you attack with your backup weapon?
Beware -- clicking the weapon with your mouse can be fatal. If was already selected and partially empty it will reload and that trooper has lost the rest of his turn. The X key is safer.

comment How often should I sprint in terror missions?
Civilians are sometimes chosen as targets even if your tasty squaddie is right there also. This gives you a disincentive to save every single one, particularly if said civilian is out in the open and you there are flyers and such about. Nice point about cover being useless vs. Chryssalids, I hadn't made that connection yet.

Ghost armor does give one a lot more tactical options. Still, a couple of people on overwatch is never a waste; sometimes the game surprises you.

It may seem like the game has slowed way down, but the rewards of this approach are not just living soldiers and successful missions, but very successful missions and quickly promoted soldiers.
