Re: New launcher system

Constantly switching weapons gets really tedious. While not optimal, a distance damage penalty would be preferable to forcing a weapon swap to attack adjacent creatures. This is from a fan of non-optimal, lazy play-style (autoexplore, tab, cleaving, etc). I would probably never use ranged if no adja...

Re: Spellforged Servitor... worth?

A summon is good for squishy DE, even if you only use it for a distraction to escape or to conserve MP. You can get Servitor without training summoning since you already have high conjuration skill. I personally like them with a DEFE since they last awhile and can help kill things from range, but an...

Re: CIP: DEFE: I will win this time!

Tomb with firestorm, controlled blink, necromutation, and vehumet is fairly easy. On levels 2 and 3, blink to a hatch, blast away, retreat through hatch when necessary. Rinse and repeat. Hardest things are those birds that get reborn because they are fast and take multiple hits to kill. Maybe carry ...

Re: Which Hepl Ancestor Type?

I have a MfWr now that just finished Orc with a Knight ancestor. I'm treating it as a tanky summons to poke polearms over. It's working pretty well. The polearm-over-Knight strategy worked pretty well for my recent MiGl 3-rune win. I also trained axes a bit to handle getting swarmed out in the open...

What if regeneration spell caused glow like invisibility, so multiple castings isn't practical? Would that be too big a nerf?

Killed by an Angel on L5

I saw the glowing shroud but figured it was that silly vault where the angel is encased except for a few grates. There was an orc in the neighborhood. I can only guess that the orc freed the angel with a wand of digging. Needless to say it was not a fair contest. http://dobrazupa.org/morgue/rjrrt/mo...

I just got a shop mimic on Orc4. This left only 3 real shops.
I felt kind of cheated out of my guaranteed 4 shops. Is this a bug, or just bad luck RNG?

I like the original proposal for Count Cards instead of Mark Four. I would certainly use it for decks of wonders. I've used triple draw on a deck of wonders only to find 1 card left. Of course it was shuffle. Of course it was on a high level spriggan caster and int became a single digit. Could not g...

Re: Make base/enchantment/slaying the same

What if slaying damage bonus were treated like a stackable form of the slaying brand instead.
A slaying enhancer % could be stacked on any weapon used, regardless of existing weapon brand.
The % could be something like 3% per point. Is this a ridiculous thought?

A long shot, but something that could have made escaping easier.
