Maybe "sprite"? I admit the word looks a little too much like "spirit", but would be an improvement.

A few random issues with 4.2 I noticed while running in the competition:

I felt the Priest and the Warrior played pretty similarly to pre-4.2. The game is just generically harder with the new monsters, which I think is a good thing. Although I do find the gorgons to be...

I agree with what's already been said: the advantage of, say, a Drain Life wand is not so much the damage that it does, as it is the damage that you don't take. This is no different than any other...

Speed is definitely the top stat in Moria. There are Boots of Speed, which are extremely rare, and Rings of Speed. Both the boots and the rings are always <+1>. Moria has a weird wonky way of...

I agree that the "earlyish" game is the place where this prayer is useful. But I wouldn't dismiss it quite so flippantly. Personally, I find the prayer very very useful for priests struggling to...

Random ranting about 4.2.0 after the recent competitions

<poorly thought out ranting>
Devices are overpowered. Wands of annihilation should be removed entirely. The "device skill" damage boost should be removed. Recharging is too easy and too...

That is indeed part of the point. The way it is currently, pretty much any stack of wands can be used like a discount Staff of the Magi, granting effectively unlimited mana. Nerfing Tap/Recharge...

Suggested new character class

I agree that Recharge is too reliable. I think it should probably have increasing chances to backfire depending on the level of the wand/staff. But at the very least, Tap should have a high chance...
