The fractional blow means you take slightly less than a full turn. 4.6 blows means you get 4 blows in 92% of a full turn (I think I did that math right). So no, you'll never get five attacks out of...

Plasma is a special element, which is unresistable; the only things you can do to take less plasma damage are to avoid being attacked and to weaken enemies that attack with it (breath damage scales...

You're at the point where warriors are probably at their comparative weakest. The game is starting to generate nastier monsters that you don't have the ability to detect with anything better than...

If you're clearing levels, you use a lot more food than if you dive. Half-troll warriors have no need to clear levels early on; they're entirely capable of surviving at level 1 at surprisingly deep...

This is faulty logic, unfortunately. The chance of an item getting destroyed is independent of all other items in your pack, so carrying "decoy" items does not protect your more valuable gear....

Drolems are rare and don't wake up all that easily. Yes, they can deal stupendous amounts of damage and you should avoid them if you lack poison resistance, but I wouldn't stop diving for fear of...

I don't think anything I said is less true when you're in the endgame than when you're just starting out. In fact I'd say a lot of endgame monsters, especially the uniques, are already in a good...

Smarter enemies is a tricky topic. There are absolutely ways to make enemies smarter (take a look at Sil or, to a lesser extent, NPP), but they completely change the tone of the game. Angband, for...

Double down! :) Make them not be able to heal from consumables, or take debuffs when they do. Let them heal from killing things, or from knocking stars off a unique's HP bar.

Regarding Dreads and elementals and so on, the simplest solution there would probably be to prevent anything but the player and spells/breaths from affecting items on vault squares. That is, items...

Functionally identical to confining it to vaults, since the vast majority of vaults where you'd want to [ab]use banishment are greater vaults.

What is the goal of preventing banishment in vaults?

This is the kind of thing that is usually solved by just going and winning already. :) Or alternately, by playing ironman, so you can't scum infinitely for vaults to loot.

At that depth, any armor you bought in the store would not make a significant difference anyway. :) I guess sometimes the RNG just doesn't like you!

Don't bother buying armor; you'll find plenty in the dungeon. Spend the money on Heroism, CLW, Phase Door, more light, etc.

Yeah, something like that. IIRC awhile back level caps got added to summoning so a Gnome Mage can't pull in an Archlich, but there should probably be a level floor as well.
