@PowerWyrm--oh wow. I could not figure out how a mage could go something like 20 rounds of melée with a horned reaper with no heals. I was pecking away at around 100 damage/turn, with Barukheled and terrible hit ratio. Yes, it was intended as a demonstration, so the character took significant damage. But it should be essentially impossible, except with something like Deathwreaker. And the stun duration was just forever from Ice Storm.

Ah, that's an embarrassing basic maths error. I'll fix that later today and we can see how it plays...

i agree with the stun being overpowered; i was meleeing mobs with a 300 dmg weapon and can take on stuff like Glaurung and the Tarrasque. However, i would like to see this effect lessened, not removed. The idea is right, it just needs tweaking.

No! There are profound philosophical objections to disallowing monster saving throws, it's not just a matter of working through the cascade of smaller issues the change causes. I can go through this one again.

Well the point is that stun was not overpowered... it was bugged :)

The latest builds on the nightlies page now have
  • saving throws and fixes for status effects and
  • fixes to the randart generation crash, and the DL99->DL100 crash

So we would like to hear about balance for both the status effects and the randart generation algorithm.

yass!
i can finally into morgoth.

Looking at the new changes for confuse monster, the duration was changed for "confuse monster" (wand + spells) and "confuse monsters" (staff), but not for other effects using MON_CONF: Totila activation (MON_CONFUSE) + Bedlam spell.

Gah I still have a character alive from the last build. I just found two scrolls of deep descent though so I'll see about fixing that

"Farmer Maggot looks for his dogs. . Farmer Maggot tells you to get off his land.."

Adding damage for melee attacks didn't take into consideration FM's moaning when dealing with punctuation. Similar issue should also happen with Orfax and co's insults.
