This type of pack animal in Angband are cowards and usually will not willingly leave the safety of a nice big room where they can surround you. This makes them fairly trivial to deal with unless...

So you're willing to trade the ability to know everything about everything in the late game for the ability to see everything about a single item in the early game? Ok, that's a choice.

I think that in this area, and probably others, this is where personal preference makes a big difference to what we perceive as "better". There's no objective "better" in a spectrum.

So we go 3.5 (end of the previous era) to 4.0 to 4.1 then straight to 5.0? 4.0 and 4.1 were not significant departures from 3.5.
