Re: Don't offer to wear a ring in the same slot as the same

Only if you know the new ring is not cursed. Why would the possibility of the second MR ring being cursed make any difference? If the in-game action you take is to put on a ring of which you are wearing an identical type, I can't see any scenario where you would want to wear it in place of the ring...

Don't offer to wear a ring in the same slot as the same ring

I love the quality of life feature where if you're wearing two of the same ring, you won't be prompted which ring to replace when putting on another ring. But why doesn't it work in the other direction? If I'm wearing a ring of MR and a ring of C+, and I go to put on another ring of MR, it should au...

Re: Autopickup item X when race Y?

There's a " Conditional options " section of the options guide, with an example. You'd want something like : if you.race() == "Troll" then autopickup_exceptions += <large rock,>spellbook : end However, in the case of large rocks, you can usually add it without a condition: The n...

Autopickup item X when race Y?

I would like to have every Troll I play automatically set up to autopickup large rocks. Is it possible to do that in init.txt?

EDIT: Also would like them by default to not pick up spellbooks.

Tweak this function to include scarves?

I just got back into the game after a while, and noticed that if I had a scarf equipped, I was automatically picking up every cloak I found, because of this great quality-of-life function I'd found and put in my init.txt. Could someone show me how to adjust it to account for scarves too, so that I'l...

If I started a Minotaur Berserker and a Minotaur Monk, and went for the same skills and everything, would the two characters actually be any different? Like, are monks naturally better at unarmed combat than a Berserker with Unarmed Combat at the same level?

Did you know you can enchant arrows? You can wield them and read scrolls of enchant weapon to increase their bonus, which in turns makes them less likely to mulch.

Running out of ammunition

Been having my best game ever as a Centaur Hunter, but I just ran out of arrows. Is there a decent way of getting more, or am I doomed to fumble around D:1-2, hoping some random low-level dudes drop stacks of them? My main sources of them thus far have been gifts from Trog, and randomly-found stacks.
