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.

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...

Monsters have a chance to break the rune, which chance depends on the monster's level. Morgoth is level 100, which doesn't guarantee that he'll break the rune, but his odds are still pretty good (for...
