XP total 17316. Garth was more about role playing than actual game playing. That's fine to a point. Now it's time for him to retire. Stats taken from character page:

As a replacement for Glaeken the Lich version of Garth was a mixed bag of successes and failures. Garth was a faction whore, never really settling with one faction. He started with the Raggies, went feral, moved briefly to ID, spent time with Invictus, then moved back to the Raggies. The downside to this character was the borked build mistakenly optimised for combat (a good example of how to get it wrong for a Lich). The build was fine when raiding but otherwise pretty rubbish e.g.
- no Sense Morality and no easy means of MO correction
- both Summon Will-O-Wisp and Hand of the Necromancer were of dubious value
- a big range of attacks spells is not so useful for a petmaster
- small errors (e.g. Minor spell version) make a big difference
- order of abilties purchased could have been much better
The upside is that he was an effective raider e.g. he was responsible for a massive ghoul army taking down the Pirates during his brief time with ID, the first time that the biggest faction in the game had been successfully rolled.
