Where are all the enchant armour scrolls?


If it doesn't fit anywhere else, it belongs here. Also, come here if you just need to get hammered.

Where are all the enchant armour scrolls?

Probably a case of the clustering illusion strikes again, but has anyone else found enchant armour scrolls to be ridiculously rare in 0.15? So much so that all my winners in this version have ended the game with +3 or less body armour. (My latest winner found one in early dungeon, and no more until level 6-7 of a ziggurat.)

It's happening so consistently that it's affecting the way I play the game - i.e. largely ignoring heavy armour and dragon hides in favour of getting more dodging, knowing that I'll probably end up with leather or robes even in the late game. (I know that's not necessarily a good idea, as +1 plate is still more AC than +1 leather, but at least the leather lets you cast spells/have good EV.) It's also making me play more octopodes and draconians since they don't care so much about enchanting armour.

I haven't been counting, but I'd guess I've seen as many scrolls of acquirement as enchant armour in 0.15.

They all ended up in my games. My DsNe made +9 IDA from scratch and the rest went to my DrGl (of course)

My current char cleared lair and found not a single remove curse. Wtf.

I haven't found Ring of Robustness at all in, like, my last 50 games. What gives!?

Re: Where are all the enchant armour scrolls?

Remove curse actually did become rarer fairly recently, though (in fact several versions have made it rarer, in the distant past it was overwhelmingly the most common scroll in the game).
I'm pretty sure enchant armour is actually slightly more common than before though. It's just never been a common scroll.
