Re: Assorted Questions

Immolation is not supposed to be used when surrounded. The perfect setup for immolation is when you're looking into an area full of monsters through a single-tile entrance. This way you'll only get hit by 1, maybe 2 explosions. You can go even further and enslave the closest monster to avoid self-da...

I don't think this is a good suggestion. Look, there are fast enemies, who can kill you in a single turn by attacking multiple times. There is random energy, which can make normal-speed monsters act twice, possibly even entering LOS and landing a killing attack at the same turn. And most importantly...
