Hot DCSS Spell Poll

Just out of curiosity, I'm wondering which spells people regard as the most and least useful. So I've made a silly poll about it:

I'd really appreciate it if you voted in it, regardless of your skill level! You don't have to answer every question if you don't want to.

Re: Hot DCSS Spell Poll

Before I answer, two questions:

1) Most useful: at soon as it's possible to cast it, considering a 3 runes game, or a 15 runes game? Because e.g. for me in the first case, best 2nd spells should be poisonous vapor, call imp or corpse rot, otherwise swiftness or blink.
2) Most useful: considering optimal play or personal playstyle? Because e.g. I never use animate skeleton because it's an horrid interface screw, but it's arguably the best lv.1 spell in the long run (but that depends on the first answer, because best 1st level spell could be freeze)
screw it I hate this character I'm gonna go melee Gastronok

Re: Hot DCSS Spell Poll

Some of these were tough calls, especially for best spells in the middle categories. Elemental schools are so close that last place felt pretty close to 1st.

Whichever of those you think is more important.

In summary: if the spell has an apostrophe in its name, there's a very high chance it sucks.

Ummm like Lee's Rapid Deconstruction sucks? Or are you talking about Borgnjor's Vile Clutch? Revivification?
