I never go past D10 before clearing lair and mines. Maybe that is your mistake and you are pushing too hard. Take your time and farm some easy branches before venturing any deeper.

By "capable" I mean innate ability or anything of gourmand being equipped.
And by "auto-eating" I also mean auto-butchering while in auto-explore mode.

Divine shield of TSO and glowing do not showing in main GUI

I can see those effects in character overview but can't on the main screen (you know, below the stats).
For example now I am flying, glowing and having a shield active, but it only displays "fly".
I wonder why?..
