It would basically be no fun to worry about the weight of money. Encumbrance is already a major issue, by design. And while in the endgame, money's largely meaningless, it's useful for the early...

Fireball in S&E is...OK, for a while, IIRC, because its max damage is better than the bolt spells. But, mana use and fail rates can be an issue, by comparison to other options you have at that...

Hmm, this may well be behind the reports, in the other thread, of problems with rangers and the inability to do damage with archery.

Makes sense, but that also suggests any single swapper is MUCH less valuable than a single booster, and very much argues against making them 1/2 or 1/3 the price. I could maybe see raising the value...

Their game value is, in part, a function of your risk aversion and class.

Consider a mage who has the Int+ swap potion. OK, there's only a 1 in 5 chance you'll lose that point of Str. When you...

The RNG wasn't being nice in giving him Smeagol that early. :) And a scimitar is reasonably heavy, so it'll only be a 1-attack weapon, I expect, for quite a while. If it had been a dagger or...

I'd argue even a +10 RoS isn't strictly better, by considering the alternatives. For the boots, not counting the artifact boots, the 2nd best choices would be either FA or Stability. FA's not that...

Or just limit the crits to single-target and beam spells. On a beam, the crit would only apply to the first victim. This would help make those spells attractive for a longer period; the area...

I agree with Nomad; there's far too many weapons. And given the extensive set of weapon egos, there's a pretty substantial overlap with the better ego types.
