|Summary||0006396: Xom confusion duration lasts forever(30+ turns)|
Recently I have been playing some games with the new(ish) Xom, and the culprit for most of my deaths are 30+ turn confusion.
The confusion duration is quite excessive. If one is unable to get rid of the confusion by being out of potions or by being a mummy, then you have a big problem.
Shuffling around hopelessly for 30+ turns with monsters attacking you, as xom only does this with monsters on-screen, tend to result in your doom.
No other ailment in this game is quite so excessive in duration. I doubt this was supposed to happen.
I've added some logs below showcasing the general duration of Xom confusion:
6624 | D:9 | XOM: confusion
6665 | D:9 | unconfused
7956 | Lair:1 | XOM: confusion
7988 | Lair:1 | Xom revived you
7990 | Lair:1 | Slain by a six-headed hydra
118538 | Zot:5 | XOM: confusion (+ monsters)
118568 | Zot:5 | HP: 7/224 [tentacled monstrosity (6)]
118569 | Zot:5 | Slain by a tentacled monstrosity
Besides the long duration, Xom has no problem chaining your confusion as your health lowers and the tension rises, making the situation even more hopeless.

|I second this, it's really bad now that Xom effects are tied to tension. I recently had three consecutive MuCK deaths (lair or earlier) due to long-lasting confusion. Low-duration confusion is acceptable, and something that mummies have to work around, but waiting out 40 turns with enemies on sight (and doing so every game) is just silly.|
Being totally silly here, but since this sound pretty damn bad - how about replacing it with a Confusion+Tornado combo?
That'd certainly be wacky.
|Capped confusion at 20 turns (along with some other changes).|
