As a general rule, you only get saving throws against spell attacks. (There are some exotic exceptions; you do get a save against cursing from auras or melee.)

I don't think that info is actually given anywhere in-game. When you hit your blow-cap it's usually pretty obvious that that is what has happened, but if you want to see that information beforehand...

I will need to update the descriptions for !heroism and !berserkstrength. I fixed some misleading descriptions in 7.1.toffee but overlooked those.

"Small levels" in deep-dungeon Angband, even after this tweak, are actually pretty large - usually 132x66 or 198x44, sometimes 132x44 (compared to 198x66 "big levels") - and play more like big levels...
