No flaming arrows or crippling shot? Is it damage or accuracy you're having trouble with? (For flaming arrows, you'll need a macro to toggle the skill so you can turn it on and off easily.) Shame you...

@Derakon--I didn't actually like the "everything known in advance" mechanic. I think ID now is pretty good, except for potions and scrolls--which ID on use even without effect. (Suggestion: make cure...

It's not the same as forced descent, because of uniques. If there's an OOD unique, you won't get another chance at it in native depth (no idea how this works in combination with monster summoning.)

Diogenes doesn't like ID-by-use of consumables. (Who knows what OP thinks, as he just says 'it sucks'.) I'm a bit surprised, since ID of consumables is by far the easiest under current gameplay. ID...

Plasma breath is limited to something like 150 max damage, so it shouldn't really be a big problem. I'm a little surprised that you didn't get a low HP warning in the previous attack.
Also, I...

No longbow at all? A high level ranger should be doing ~1000 damage per turn with elemental ammo. Even a longbow of might would be better than 1 shot per turn with a sling. (rDark is not worth the...

Gwarl-the lag just proves fatal for me, every time (West Coast,
USA.) It's a great idea, but it needs a few satellite nodes spread worldwide.

@fph--the thing is, it's been a very long time since I died while IDing a summoning object. I've come close, sure. If summoning is the biggest problem with ID-BY-USE, then the whole mechanic is in...

@Sky--it happens. I strongly recommend carrying scrolls for such situations. And if you're at Plasma Hound depth, Teleport Self itself is a significant risk of death.

I'm not sure why you're donating a lightning brand bolt. That will work against things like the Tarrasque, and it just takes a slot in the Quiver, not a full inventory slot.

It's NOT the same thing as 1/4 sharpness, at all. Sharpness affects ALL hits, granting them up to (armor roll) extra damage. The Warhammer only affects hits up to 4/3*(armor roll).

@Sky--
Yeah, it's not nearly as bad as it used to be. It went from radius 20 to radius 10 (or 8?), which means only about a quarter the area is affected now.
