Personally going to disagree here, the spell itself is just as flawed when cast through scrolls and staves. It's just the access to the flaw that really exposes it for what it is, a bandaid solution...

Re: Banishment ideas

Both suggestions for banishment seem very nice to me, although I'm of the mind that it should be universally applied not just to the cast spells but consumables as well. Sure it affects other classes...

The nerf can be easily universal if monsters that save once save against all attempts against them thereafter.

Saving throw and spell power

It's always felt strange the way the concept of contested spells in Angband worked to me, and the banishment situation sort of feels flawed in a similar way. Monsters being deleted without a chance,...

The way I think of it warriors should be weaker compared to other classes endgame than other classes for multiple reasons, but I'll spare you all the tirade :D

Stasis probably is fine where it's at, I guess it's more of a niche thing now. Sorcery realm has enough going for it, especially now that slow monster is effective against even very high level...

Probable bug with race transformation?

I have a bug (I think?) that's fairly easy to reproduce. When polymorphing into a demon as a dark elf sorcerer, the game sometimes fails to reevaluate my mana pool unless I swap a piece of equipment....

Is there a formula for how likely is death ray to work on a given monster? And what should I be using mass stasis (sorcery) for? I feel like it could be good, but just haven't used it much.

Weird behavior with monster light / dark radius

On a new char I started I noticed some unexpected behavior that (probably?) seems like a bug. In the 'Trouble at Home' quest, I attacked a mean mercenary with a ranged attack. Upon waking up, he...
