Having Pain brand in inv should enable Necromancy training.


Although the central place for design discussion is ##crawl-dev on freenode, some may find it helpful to discuss requests and suggestions here first.

Seriously? This is ridiculous.

This bug report comes up every six months or so and is repeatedly closed as wontfix.

The last (and only) ticket I'm seeing for this on Mantis is from 2014. Please link any others?

It's annoying behavior and should be changed, regardless of any previous discussion.

Why? Most everything else in the game has moved towards "let the player train for what they have in their inventory"-ex, player no longer has to have shield equipped to train Shields, just has to have a shield in inventory.

Why shouldn't you be able to train necromancy for pain brand when pain brand directly benefits from necromancy? If the reason is "so that players are pushed towards getting necro spells alongside it", they are already pushed towards getting necro spells alongside it by virtue of having the skill and also necro spells being really good.
If it's just "because it's not a bug, this may be changed but not via a bugfix" feel free to disregard the tone if not the point of this post
