I agree with Grotug's analysis. Wands are, simply put, more powerful than rods. You don't need a gigantic stack of rods to be able to fire one bolt per round for however long the fight lasts; you...

I would not consider any of those three items to be a particularly high-value purchase, but on the flipside, money does you no good if you're dead. The Potion of *Healing* is a great item to...

That depends on what your base damage is. If your base damage is 50/blow on average, then the damage ring increases your per-blow damage by 30%. But if your base damage is 100/blow then it's only a...

Only a single book would significantly reduce inventory pressure on caster classes, which is an indirect nerf of warriors. There's also a significant amount of enjoyment to be had from finding a new...

Crap artifacts are generally amusing at least. :)

What do y'all think about making artifacts more rare, possibly as an option? I know there's artifactless, but that's a little absolutist. It might...

Just so we're clear on this: in the long run, it's pretty much expected that every character will find enough stat-boosting potions to max out every stat. Random starting stats just means you don't...

This is what we get for having two hybrid classes that use arcane magic. It's hard for players to tell what they're good at. :)

Rangers are marginally better spellcasters than rogues are, but...

Put another way, tangar, your Diplomacy roll (or I guess in D&D 5e it'd be a Persuasion roll) failed. And this isn't one of those situations where you can just keep trying over and over again.

I'm pretty sure that 4% is the minimum failure rate when at 18/50 INT. So what's going on here is that the game calculates a failure rate based on your level, the spell's difficulty, your INT, and...

Reducing the number of books sounds like a good thing to me, from a "too much junk" perspective if nothing else.

I think it's based purely off of native depth. Having uniques be pushed past instead of trampled seems like a reasonable solution to me. Uniques certainly shouldn't be immune to trampling, otherwise...
