That's interesting, because I've had two deep Composband weaponsmith runs, and the one slot where I used arts/randarts instead of smithed egos pretty much throughout was the armor slot. I stored a...

While this won't help you in shops, weapons represented by \ are good for priests, and weapons represented by | or / are not unless they're blessed.

Most of the quest entrances are in the wilderness around the town. IIRC, many of the early ones are in the southwest, near the dungeon entrance.

Scrambled stats are also more likely to be an issue if your INT is really low (but yeah, super-low INT is not by any means a big problem for a priest).
