The difference in to-hit is enough to matter IMO. I'd keep +shots even if ego ammo were not so prevalent.

I think defaulting to manual is fine, but the starting point should be fully invested point allocation that is presumed optimal.

Grinding is usually a terrible strategy. If you die and restart, you might still find FA faster IRL than grinding at DL20. When you factor in deaths due to inattention, it's my oipinion that...

That's entirely the wrong attitude. Keep going down, and just be careful. The FA items start to come more commonly at DL25 and much more commonly at DL30.

I like saving those things. I believe that the choice to cheat death should be done the next time the game is started, when the emotions of YASD have worn off.

If you are using it to save mana, you might want to wear a ring of int. Or con or speed, as death reduces your mana precipitously :). In particular, a ring of str+5 generally gives you +5 to hit...

Do such mages ever choose between a ring of damage and a ring of slaying? I think I always use different rings by the time that sort of combat is feasible.

The other thing to keep in mind is that these comparisons are important *only* when facing a serious threat. You simply shouldn't care against lesser opponents.

This is an old old discussion. FWIW I think the idea of monster memory is stupid, and have advocated for telling the players the rules of the game [i.e. full monster info] for more than a decade.
