Early full detect objects spell. But it is less over-the-top awesome than it used to be because of loss of resistance and haste spells in 4.2. Also fewer HP.

Whip of Gothmog is *made out of fire*. So yeah, it has light. Cettainly blessed weapons should not be vulnerable to removal of light, and indeed should up the fail rate even more.

Stunned is my guess, too. Stunned melee loses both accuracy and damage, and you might get more stunned. It is a very bad deal.

List-tvals is necessary to make an enum used by the code. There isn't much point in adding a tval without also adding logic to handle it, so I see no benefit to changing this

No. Smite Evil is effectively an off-weapon brand. That is potentially massively powerful, as wobbly points out if you find Aglarang or especially Glaive, as the latter has huge base damage. But the...

Probably not for a mage. The difference between effrctive speeds 11 and 17 are much less than between speeds 1 and 7. I have made this decision before and come to the same conclusion you do.

Grotug-
It is because speed boots are so common in comparison to 3.0.x. Back then, speed boots were a huge find. Kany games you never found any, and ended up using Boots of Thror.
