Let's not lose fast cast, the Haste Self spell was always a defining moment in a mage's career. In fact, I think we should put it back closer to where it came from in 4.2.0. I keep mentioning...

I know this trick -- but I thought recharging was rewritten a while ago to make this unnecessary? It seems even recharging from 0 charges backfires much more often now. Staves of Detect...

At the lower levels, it's hardly worth casting then, unless one is stealthy enough to cast/rest until it doesn't fail.

Seriously, this is a big nerf. Mages used to have Haste Self which got the...

Boo! Always nerfing on stealthy mages. 4.2.0 was SO much fun....(but, admittedly, not much of a challenge).

4.2.2 takes much more tip-toeing and pre-fight prep for mages. More challenging,...

I also noticed that slow (wand and staff) now wakes monsters. I almost always play emphasizing stealth, so this is a bit of a setback... but perhaps non-waking slow was too powerful, it did...

Disappointing -- it makes the game visually less appealing. Is there a configure option or way to put the old rendering engine back if I build angband myself?
