Half troll warriors only get five, realistically. You need a preposterous amount of DEX for six with that combo.

Wobbly--
This used to be the case, in 3.0.x. The original device fail rate was a lot more sensitive to modest skill boosts

You are right. INT used to be more valuable when there was a breakpoint at skill 53 for high level activations (and at 43 for the rod of TO.) The current implementation has no breakpoint.

INT has important secondary effects. Being able to use the rod of TO is a big deal. A low INT HT warrior cannot. 100% save is nice, but less important, I agree.

It depends on if you want to dive or not. If not, allocate STR/DEX get max blows, with extra point on STR (your weak point.). If you want to dive, allocate a few points to CON, and any left over to...

@powerwyrm--
near and far were 8086 specific keywords from the very old days. As far as I know, they are gone from every modern compiler, except apparently for microcontrollers.

Is it repeatable? That is, if you try running by the coins in the same direction a second time, does it happen again? If so, a save file is possible.

I have to disagree on one point:
Moving slower than your enemies is a whole lot of fun. Taking a 350HP mage at 3 native speed and no ESP to DL 80 is exciting--every approach takes thought. Then you...

My problem with all these games is the ships don't really act like battleships. Allied WWII battleships had an effective range of 20,000 yards, minimum. That is 700 boat lengths, over 10 miles. Even...

@spara
Depends on the variant. In old variants, SHRIEK just added 10 to speed, so yes. In newer variants, it adds to a haste counter, just like the one for the player.

What Derakon said. Out of curiousity, what weapon did you end up using against Morgoth? I don't see it in your inventory, and it surely wasn't Grond.
