Um. What? No, mages don't wear the same as warriors, not even close. Yeah, every class will wear Feanor or Thorin, but that says nothing about the class: those are just phenomenal artifacts. (And a...

Galaxy Note 5 phone. It's a little too narrow for easy typing, but has enough vertical real estate to handle a height 40 map. The fixed height 23 map is the single worst part of the current port.

@Frenchminstaer--
It's like any other group: avoid them if fighting will exhaust your resources. Otherwise, you can run them over like a speed bump (say, if you have a *thanc weapon.)

Usually it depends on weapon weight. (A big weapon like a MoD or Grond gets way more superb and *GREAT* criticals.)

In V, at least, criticals are included in weapon damage estimates. Big dice weapons do up to 10% more than their nominal damage.

Yes it does. {RETURN} key brings up a menu of options. However, this doesn't get rid of ridiculous menus, because there are so many things you can use--from spellbooks to arrows.
