Version 0.17: This article may not be up to date for the latest stable release of Crawl.


Crawl allows you to play using widely different play styles, depending on your character and god choice. The wide variety of choices offered might intimidate or even overwhelm new players. These are a selection of strong combos from the main character archetypes in the game.

  • Troll Berserker: For the newcomer of this game. Even being listed in tutorial, but this combination is sufficiently strong until mid-game, helping the player to understand the basic game system.
  • Centaur Hunter: A typical ranged character. Centaur speed and HP increase survivability. Worship Trog or Okawaru for weapon, armour as well as ammo gifts.

These are just few examples, there are lots of other combinations that are reasonably easy to play. Feel free to experiment.
