Yes, paid for with starting gold. I generally buy a dozen flasks of oil and heroism if I am playing a weak character (with less than 3 blows.) No, it doesn't always pay off. But when it does, it is...

Calris is a weak endgame weapon. As such, you want to use it with a ring of damage. Feagwath doesn't have a whole lot of HP. He should go down pretty quickly if you optimize for damage. Vecna is...

Speed absolutely maxes out. For a melee character, anything over 30 hasted (base 20) is better off being exchanged for damage and armor. (Note that base speed is adjusted for encumbrance, so you may...

There isn't much choice for the first few levels. If you find the stairs quickly, great. If you don't, you are stuck exploring. And at the very start, mapping scrolls are too expensive to afford in...

D&D inherited the name from real life,where the term 'lightning bolt' (or 'thunderbolt') is current. Renaming storm spells and lightning bolt won't be an improvement.

In principle, it could also grant zero blows, or possibly 1 every 3 turns, with fractional blows. Yeah, that is one of the worst ever artifacts...except for a certain sword that gives -10 speed.

I watched a little at DL 56. Crazy fight with ranger chieftain, sorceror, berserker, ancient blue and green dragons, nearly at once. You probably should have died then (and did get down to 48HP.)

Unless you are at speed +20, GMM can take you from stunned to knocked out in a single player turn. At normal speed, he can knock you out in a single turn. Very bad news..

Disenchantment max damage is 500, or 428 with resistance (which you definitely need when fighting the big R.) And yes, you will want both immunities.

Indeed. Divning with a mage, Defender(+4), Ring of the Mouse, Cloak of Stealth, etc are all excellent choices. I value a cloak of Stealth much higher than Protection in this case.

At one point there was a rule that un-IDed objects don't stack. In later versions, this only applied to magic devices, very likely because of the ammo issue.
