Re: YAVP DgSk of ran out of pots in extended

Probably, but I erred on the side of caution. Felt as though it would of been a lot of "sit, regen, ancient lich appears, rinse, repeat" that would have stretched my game into dumb mistake territory.

Read ID those scrolls. You're at D:11 and have only one scroll known.

Pretty sure that large shield is affecting your DPS at zero skill. It also appears to be the only thing keeping you alive as you don't have any defenses trained minus fighting. Should start training the others ASAP.

Re: when did penance start causing god wrath?

Killing allies has incurred wrath for a long time, at least as long as I have been playing (around 0.7). It's why Oka is not suggested for any build using summons.

Now boosting the wrath effect was relatively recent, within the past year.
