Recommendations for tweaking my build
I've been having a bit of success lately with this build and wondered if anyone had any advice on changes to make to it, or whether it is viable in the long term.

unarmed (dont have to worry about specific weapons, use orbs, shields and books)
artful dodger (dodge, knightly leap)
perception (dodge, loot, laser eyes)
burglary (trap goodness, lockdown, invisibility)
archeology (trap bonuses, sacrifice items for xp, change item bonuses, second krom ritual)
warlockery (mana powered armor)
alchemy (being able to make heal potions is great)

Build order:
1point warlockery for the mana powered armor. This has been a real game changer for me and increased my survivability especially early. The initial power that gives bonus damage is good too.

1 point archoloogy for send it to museum (great early xp)

1 point burglary for lockpicks (nothing worse than missing a chest if you run out of picks from using them on doors)

2points dodger for knightly leap (get to loot islands, great for enemy avoidance/running away)

perception till laser eyes.

Any recommendations on how i could be doing things differently? Each time i've died so far it's been from going into the portals from the glowing wall graffiti codes, so i've given up on that now.

I have some notes, you can make of them what you want. Some of this is probably my own personal bias, so take it for what it's worth.

I'd personally swap out Archaeology and Perception for Ley Walker (or Blood Mage) + another skill, such as Shield Mastery or Demonology or Killer Vegan or Astrology or Berserk Rage or something like that. My reasoning is as follows:
1. Archaeology I find to be overrated in the long run.
2. Perception, while a great skill, is not quite as necessary for Alchemy as it is for, say Smithing or Tinkering. Alchemy ingredients are less difficult to come by.
3. If you go any deeper into Warlockery, you'll probably find out that as great a skill as it is, you'll frequently have mana issues, and potions and alcohol are not always the most convenient ways to deal with that.

Pretty Much Vegan is a must for the HP boost and the mobs dont attack you if they are veggies. Great for early on survival.
