It means divide the no. of charges by no. of wands for the calculation. 2 wands, 1 charge = 0 charges, 2 wands, 2 charges = 1 charge etc. It's identical to dropping all but 1 wand on the ground before charging.

OK - but the question was, is there more danger of the wand being destroyed if it has more charges?

YES!!! The lowest risk is a stack of wands/staves, fully-depleted to zero charges. Some advocate dropping and charging each singly, however, my understanding is that there is less risk in a stack.

Thanks. Unfortunately that's yet another inv space for some recharge scrolls.

You can leave the scrolls at home and recharge on return. Eventually you will get Tenser's Transformations, the ultimate Ranger/Rogue spellbook. (Though ranger does get *destruction* from Keleks's.)

Found a rod of teleport other (27 turn recharge), so can use that or the wands.

Also found a weapon with 2 stealth and about 97 damage (instead of 57) that has regen - so I could replace the regen amulet with telepathy amulet. Hm.

Seems like an improvement?

2 more stealth, I still aggro things.

Stealth is useless with aggravation. What are you you using that has aggro, anyway? It will probably kill you.

Nothing - what I meant was, that my current stealth still has some monsters go aggro, so more stealth might help.

Pete Mack August 18, 2018 18:38

Then say that, please. Aggravation is something very specific. Some monsters will always wake up unless you have legendary stealth, which is unlikely except for level 40+ rogues. (It is a very different kind of zero-fail.)

Words can have multiple meanings/contexts - it's just a miscommunication. Aggro is both a verb of what the monster does, and an item curse.

First I ever heard of legendary stealth - the current choice is just weighing the extra 2 stealth.
