They're in player-calcs.c (https://github.com/angband/angband/blob/master/src/player-calcs.c), for the most part. The speed/energy table is elsewhere, I forget where exactly.

If you want a cheap way to worsen ego weapons, make their pluses lower. An MoD of Extra Attacks with only +10 to-dam is still going to be good, but it's going to have a lot more trouble competing...

Saving throws pretty much work like a will save in D&D. In particular, they do not work against physical effects, like melee-based stat drain/status effects (which presumably are various kinds of...

The relative balance of ego items and artifacts is a related issue, but I think it can be tackled separately. The balance of standarts and ego-items is a little precarious, but fairly clear; in...

Making randart sets more cohesive

Crossposting from the "No OP Items" thread, because I thought this was an interesting idea and I'm disappointed nobody's responded/reacted to it. :) As background, the issue being discussed was that...

You may be right, but I think a few heuristics should be able to handle synergy for most cases. I don't think it's necessary to have an algorithm that's guaranteed to be perfect; after all, rare...

If the player is typically overpowered and easily able to solve the "equipment puzzle", then that is a problem that can be solved by reducing the total strength of equipment, both of artifacts and of...

I don't think that we can make any balance decisions based on Sky's playstyle, because like they admitted, they grind the hell out of the game. They routinely make posts saying "I looked at the...

That combo was removed because it was too powerful.

IMO the target should be around 400-500 damage per round for endgame warriors in melee, rarely more, and less DPR for literally any other source...

Are there procgen aspects of artifact activations these days? I thought they just picked randomly from the pool of possible item activations, and there's no item I can think of that fires a starbust...

An 8d10 +12 weapon doesn't need slays or brands to be ruinously effective.

At a guess, flags are set properly, but stat modifiers aren't. It wouldn't make sense for your Half-Orc to automatically know the "enhances STR" rune, for example.

...so by that analogy, does it...

Speed potions aren't abundant for many players, and since they're immune to charges drain, players that can't cast Haste Self will tend to hoard them for the final fights, and rely on rechargeable...
