Re: When they say 0.16 is removing Blessed Blades...

The wiki lists all of them as Blessed Blades... So then probably what will happen is, when TSO blesses your weapon it just gains the Holy Wrath brand, but no longer gains an upgraded form. ...actually, I think that's fair, because the "Blessed Blade" system kind of unfairly penalized peopl...

Back in Linley's Dungeon Crawl the lack of a hunger clock was actually kind of a big deal.

When Grunt said that Crawl was perfect and all further updates would just mess it up, I thought he was joking. Then I looked at the current changelist for 0.15.
