Im skeptical that it makes the game any easier. The staple stuff (CLW, selling back basic wandso recharge them) are so cheap that I doubt it matters if you turn on no_selling or turn it off and dont...

Personally, I think Hit and Run would better if it lasted longer, and teleported you even on a failed theft attempt. Then, you could cast it before doing something dangerous, and you have a teleport...

I actually find aggravation to be very useful in the endgame, especially on paladins (who have renewable healing) and blackguards (who have infinite spellpoints). It allows you to lure enemies out of...

He is literally trivial with a Blackguard. Send him flying across the room with Forceful Blow, pepper him with arrows as he approaches, do it again. Lather, rinse, repeat. Great source of endgame...

They're not as bad as ranger chieftains, if only because you have reliable TO by the time they start showing up. But yeah, the whole Maia fighting you feels even more off these days after the monster...

Yeah, I know some people do that. Personally, I prefer to go down the old-fashioned way. This is partially because I'm a cautious player, and so like to be overprepared for Morgoth, and grinding on...

Are we sure this is a challenge? Most of my deaths happen after reading a Deep Descent scroll. Personally I squash them as soon as I find then.
