So this does make quite a substantial difference.

I can tell you myself that Elbereth is pretty great for archers. I've been running quite a few lately in testing the overhaul of the archery tree...

Thank you. This is really useful feedback. I felt the wards were powerful from my own experimentation, which was more combat oriented, but it was hard to put a finger on it. Knowing that it would be...

Infinitum, forgive me for being impatient, but you are again making sweeping statements that are hard to reconcile with reality. This is along the same lines as claiming that Smithing is not useful...

This sounds identical to what we have now, except that abilities would be free?

Pacifists - and stealth - are already balanced round this lower XP. They're already the speed run kings and the easiest characters for a 50K start.

It applies to Weaponsmith, Armorsmith and Jeweller - but you can only make enchanted versions of these items if you already could make those items. So if you have Weaponsmith and Armorsmith and pick...
