Do you guys kill grave wights or just ignore them?

Tattered wights you can kite since they are slow. Barrow wights are less dangerous since they drain grace. But what about grave wights? Unless I'm running Noldor or some grace focused build, I...

Actually, am I thinking about this wrong?

When someone uses song of mastery, is it merely to supplement core stats? i.e. you never go all out on song and skip evasion but instead have a modest...

Is there a trick to IDing shield of wrath/treacherous paths greaves?

Even without _understanding or _self knowledge, I frequently come to realize what they are way before the game itself does. Sometimes, the game figures it out in a few hundred turns. Other times, it...

Well, I guess I'll keep an eye out for Saithnar then. That or Anglachel/Anguirel. Celeg Aithorn should also work since it's branded. And I'm sensing that you need around 30 melee, whether that's...

Hm. Okay, so a decent amount of strength, rapid attack, and concentration...and a sharp 3 dice weapon.

What's the advantage of a 0.9 lb weapon over a 1 lb?

Say you have a 1 lb (+1, 1d8) shortsword. You have 0 strength. Melee is 15 normally. With rapid attack, you get two (+13, 1d5) attacks. And if...

Two-weapon Fighting vs. Rapid Attack vs. Normal Attack?

Never really branched into those two abilities before, but the whole -3 str and -3 dex thing gets me skeptical that they are significantly better than just your normal attack. I usually have enough...

What happens if the item gets buried? Can you still dig it out? Or is it gone for good? If getting buried protects it from breath attacks, then that doesn't sound all that bad.
