|0001805||[DCSS] FR: Gameplay Balancing||minor||have not tried||2010-06-21 20:15||2013-07-29 00:00|
|Status||resolved||Product Branch||0.7 ancient branch|
|Summary||0001805: change scroll of Vorpalize to scroll of Branding|
Currently once I find one ?Vorp finding any more are a bit disappointing. I suggest that it become a scroll of Branding and will either add a brand or replace an existing brand on any non-artefact weapon. The brand you get should be random but not include those given by gods (distort/holy/pain).
This would help when you find a good (rare) weapon but hate the brand it has and keep the scrolls more interesting after the first one.

|It'd obviously skip over speed (and chaos?) as well, but I sort of like this. It might need to be a new scroll type, though, as affixing a temp brand should still be possible and it'd be sort of conflicting if it did both.|
|What about letting the branding spells (and the Blade card) overwrite existing brands instead?|
"What about letting the branding spells (and the Blade card) overwrite existing brands instead?"
@KiloByte - is this still desired? It could make branding spells marginally more useful in some situations but is it worth it, especially taking into account branded artifacts which "cannot be changed by magic or mundane means".
Here's a patch for this issue. It seems to work well and the weights are at least reasonable.
As a bonus it fixes a bug in the venom branding due to changes in OTR.
|Hm, I'm not so sure about reaping, which currently occurs only on unrands and on the worst polearm (scythes). Maybe it would be fine, though.|
|Pushed this with reaping brand removed and some other minor tweaks. Thanks for the patch!|
