6 ?Blink for trove?

Do you guys think it's worth paying 6 scrolls of blinking for a trove?

Re: 6 ?Blink for trove?

I did it once with OP character (gave all scrolls I had), was disappointed. It is extremely high price, I would be happier to give wand of HW/tele.

Re: 6 ?Blink for trove?

Can you cast cblink? Or do you have 8 scrolls of blinking saved up? Otherwise no.

Re: 6 ?Blink for trove?

scroll of blink is a reliable means to save your life, except when you want to get the additional six times of death, to pay scroll of blink is a stupid choice.

Re: 6 ?Blink for trove?

I'd do it. There are other escape options and odds are good that you will find more scrolls.

Re: 6 ?Blink for trove?

I always enter Troves when I can afford the price... I wouldn't say it's always worth it, but I like to gamble...

Re: 6 ?Blink for trove?

Not sure if it's too late, but will add in that I would be really hard-pressed before I would pay 6 blink scrolls for a trove. As mentioned, ?blink is a get-out-of-death-free card and is easily one of the best consumables in the game. Is my character strong enough to not care? Do I have a hoard of ?blink for some reason? Do I need something so desperately that I am willing to risk a crap-shoot? (in this last case, I am actually even more likely to turn the trove down).

Re: 6 ?Blink for trove?

Utility of ?blink has increased a ton since -ctele is no longer a thing in Z:5. I think I would have payed the trove price in earlier versions though.

Re: 6 ?Blink for trove?

I'd probably pay the price, fully concious that it's suboptimal, but enjoying it.

Edit: unless I had it hastable of course. Then I'd happily do it if I had 7 scrolls.

Re: 6 ?Blink for trove?

I'd want at least 1, preferably 2 blink scrolls left over afterwards, and then I'd do it. It'd only be on a powerful character that I'd give up that many scrolls, but if you're weak you probably never got to a stack of 8 blink scrolls in the first place. And if you have the spell then yes of course open the trove. But for most characters who first saw this trove it would be a "wait and see if it's affordable later on" type of trove.

Waiting also increases the quality of the trove items.

It does what? Just because you have more junk wands IDed? Or is there something that will make an armour trove more valuable if opened later?

Re: 6 ?Blink for trove?

Yeah, because you have more junk (not just wands) ID'ed.

I would never significantly delay entering a trove for that reason, but I do, when I can afford it, go back and buy unid'ed junk from shops first.

Re: 6 ?Blink for trove?

Of course, one must compare to opening the trove to get all the junk things out of the way to make later spawns more valuable.

Does waiting also work for elf or crypt 3?

Xen, what happened to the character? Is it still active?
