@Grotug--the Q cannot have been in the vault, or the teleport wouldn't have put him back in the same room. (If it had been, then yes: ?phase would clearly be the right choice.)

Did you get the MHDSM, or did it get *destructed* along with the Q? (Clearly the Q wasn't in the vault.)

Ooh, lovely death! I did something similar once with Arien. Dying with -1200HP was pretty spectacular.)

@Derakon-
That'd be a recipe for abuse: any time you see a dangerous monster, run away at an angle and make a little knight's move funny. Then blast away from out of LOS.

Agree. Even if it cuts damage in half, it makes a massively overpowered replacement for resistance. I too played such a character Posband Shadow Dragon, IIRC. It was fun once. But it had...

@voovus--
Vs Morgoth, it's around 80% for a fully buffed ranger; vs. Sauron, it's about 5% less. Even with the higher fail rate, the damage is much higher than magic devices. If the ranger is...

I agree with mrfy. It's a useful lesson for newbies: always keep sufficient consumables. And it's a lot less subtle than cure wounds and phase door.

So long as there *are* old comfortable versions. I'd love a 4-retro version, with 3.0 gameplay, but 4.0 UI and RuneID.

Galaxy Note 5 phone. It's a little too narrow for easy typing, but has enough vertical real estate to handle a height 40 map. The fixed height 23 map is the single worst part of the current port.
