What I used to read long ago was to stay at DL 30 or a little deeper until your stats were way up. I personally never read that DL 40 is the sweet spot for loot more generally.

I almost made a snarky suggestion like this before, but I was a bit regretful of being so snarky earlier. So, with all due apologies, why not make food a birth option? That is, set the player...

Whether Bloodlust is worth the negative side effects or not is certainly questionable, and I'd like it to stay in that questionable zone. Something people seem to overlook is that it gives you CL+BL...

Yes, documentation could be better. Try shift-S tho. That will give you the in-game description.

I just wanted it to be fair. I conjured up all the XP and the villains as well. But I don't think many CL 15s will be jealous of the equipment.

I think I anticipated this response with my edit above. Heavier weapons do more damage per blow. You can see this in the weapon's stats. BG spells do a fixed amount of blows without regard to weight....
