Oh - but you could find some fun randarts digger second weapons :)

The downside to the need of having a digger would be its greater effect on the strength impaired. I usually try and find a ring of digging for those - would that fit into your digger slot?

The digger must be of base type digger. And if you have TUNNEL (even off-weapon) no damage accrues.
I can kind see this. But in the late game (or even late middle-game), it's a recipe for seriously annoyance.

I did not know this. Awesome!


I only wish it would swap to a digging ring if I had one so I could carry that instead of the annual output of the Pennsylvania Steel Industry in my bag.
This would be amazing. Rings of digging are one of my favorite items in the game.
