It's kind of overkill, but single combat works really well against harrowen. Or nexus Q. Or any other Q.

Oh yes: remove curse spell should show power. Right now I have no idea if it is worth using instead of waiting for *remove curse*.

The elven rings each give +5 speed, a bit of damage, and pluses to all three combat stats. They definitely work as the speed ring for most characters, especially since they free up the helmet slot...

Or what is paladin thematically? Fights demons, while priests fight undead? Then temp rFire might be better, since fire is the element most associated with Hell.

I am sure I will eventually use the big healing spell, some time around CL 42. And yes, the recall spell allows me to carry the book for free, and yes clairvoyance is a fine spell, and I can sort of...

Is Mana channel still 2x faster or only 1.5? I got the strong impression it was the latter.

Playing paladin first time in forever.

Book 1 is fine, though it'd be nice if See Invisible duration scaled with CL, like the other minor buffing spells.

Book 3 is killer, even though I can only cast slay evil with marginal...

Really enjoying Paladin book 3

Book 2 is sort of a let-down, with a healing spell i can't cast, nor afford to cast whenever its fail rate gets down.
But book 3 is great, even with just the first spell at 35% fail. My BoC of...

I might consider a ring of strength. -2 speed is a way bigger risk than a bit of stealth would get. It might even be worth the 130+ HP you would lose.

NPP had a quiver first. Then NPP 0.5 came along and I couldn't stand it--just wall to wall monsters. Too exhausting. I do like the terrain system tho.

Definitely agree about the Heal300 spell. The heal2000 spell is stupid overkill for a paladin. If you really need it, you can't risk casting it. Meanwhile, you're out 50MP when you...

Is there any chance of a tile size between 1 and 2? One is hard to read, but 2 means I can see only a small part of town. The tile dimension ratios are 100% (2:1), 50%(3:2), 33%(4:3), 50%(6:4).

Shockwave's purpose is to stun. I think your real problem is stat potions, not any inherent problem with mage. Mana bolt + fast cast is a fine combination.
