Refreshing conjure flame

As someone who uses conjure flame quite often, I've noticed some strange behavior when refreshing a cloud that is diminishing. It seems that about half the time, when refreshing a dying cloud I get the response that the fire roars with new energy, but in practice no extra longevity is provided. That...

YAVP! First Ziggurat / First Octopode Win

The first of all my Octopodes to ever successfully get a rune, and there were an embarrassing amount of tries. Having never been in a Ziggurat previously, I was amazed at the inconsistency of level difficulty. Surprisingly, the hardest level was level 20, with tons of smiting and hellfire. Level 27 ...

Re: YASD: First Octopode insta death upon enter Lair

Well, you went into the Lair, saw the hydra, left (good plan if there was no other way to get away from it, although you could also have possibly have killed it with wands of cold and draining), and then decided to go back in again and die by the look of it (bad plan). He wasn't anywhere near the s...

Re: Does Cerebov have magic points?

Thanks. My stealth is 22, and I have controlled blink, haste/swift/flying, as well as a wand of teleport to make my exit with. While it's good to know my first 15 rune attempt probably won't end in a Fire Storm, it does seem a bit disappointing that the only real "bosses" in the game can s...

Re: Does Cerebov have magic points?

I'm kind of in a bind, this is my first 15 rune attempt and would be my first ascension with a pure caster (DeFe). With no means of regenerating mana quickly I simply can't bring him down. I have a rod of demonology and rod of summoning I've been using to gather a horde for cannon fodder and just ho...

Does Cerebov have magic points?

I suppose the question would apply to all monsters, but specifically I wanted to know if Cerebov has just spammed 3 fire storms at my various summons, does he only have 1 or 2 left in him? Or can he more or less spam them indefinitely? In one of my previous attempts to take him down this run, it end...

You're correct; I reread experience aptitude wiki and it does specify that it only helps determine experience levels. Thank you for saving me a lot of wasted time.

More accurate aptitude table?

Unless I'm mistaken, doesn't a Kobold with Conjuration (-1) raise that skill faster than a High Elf (+1) simply because the Kobold gets 50% more experience? If so, isn't it possible to develop revised aptitude tables to account for relative experience? Before I spend several hours in excel (several ...

ring of slaying wording

It's clear from the wiki that this ring influences melee and ranged combat, but its in-game description reads "This ring increases or decreases the hand-to-hand and missile combat skills of its wearer". I try not assume everyone obsessively references the wiki as often as I do, and coming ...

Nagas: Train unarmed?

I see in the wiki that a constriction has an initiation chance any time an unarmed attack is made with an appropriate body part. As far as I can tell from the wiki the level of unarmed combat skill has no bearing on success of a potential constriction or the damage output when one begins. Is this ac...

Re: Updating Crawl in Linux Mint

apt-get update only updates your list of packages. You then need to run apt-get upgrade to actually upgrade the packages to the latest version. You're almost there! That was amazingly helpful. Latest version is up and Crawling so now I can make myself at home in Linux Mint. Hard to believe I was on...

Updating Crawl in Linux Mint

I'm fairly inexperienced when it comes to Linux but I'm trying to spend more time in my Linux Mint partition to get more familiar with it. Getting the latest version of Crawl up and running is pretty important to keep me from crawling back to Windows (pun intended). As it stands now I've gotten Craw...

Re: Need more numbers

You could probably make Lua scripts to get your spell power, hunger, average damage, etc. since those are determined by formulas that use visible information. But if you want any information on a monster more precise than a portion of its flags and resistances (e.g. its damage, HP, HD, whether it h...

Re: Need more numbers

Numbers beyond an enemies maximum possible hit are rarely ever relevant. Who cares what you were hit for? Does it really matter? All you need to know is what your remaining health is and how much the enemy can hit in the future (which can't reliably be determined by previous hits but CAN be determi...

Need more numbers

To me, it seems to be a tad arbitrary how Crawl determines what numbers and statistics are divulged. For instance, you could record your current hit points, then just subtract your hit points after receiving a single hit by a single monster to determine how hard it hit you. So Crawl is willing to pr...
