As a counter-anecdote: over three wins (warrior, paladin, mage) in 4.2.1 I have never been slowed from extra food. I'm not sure if there is a big play style difference here but by just reading a...

It's separate, not the same curve. It reduces energy cost rather than increasing the rate of energy gain - exactly like multiple bow shots per round or fast casting.

This was my point, really -...

I feel like it is not really that much. In my last game I did level 46-50 in several rapid passes of 4900’ and 4850’. That’s a few million xp and I think it was six or seven potions of experience. A...

YAWP, 4.2.1 mage thoughts, movement speed artifact balance

Mage has always been my favourite class and in 4.2.1 it still is. After more failed gnome mages than I care to count, I finally won with a high-elf (first mage win in any version).

Found on the dungeon floor.

The item code tells you how the item was actually generated and ignores what happened since. So if it says “dropped by” a monster it didn’t contribute to your level...

I'm trying to get the hang of playing Gnome Mage. It feels like I have the early game smooth now - I manage to dive pretty rapidly to 2000', picking up bits and pieces of eq and a few stat potions,...

Idea - naming dungeon spell books

I always quite liked the old books which were named after famous wizards (Kelek's, Raal's, etc) but they are way off-theme, coming from D&D or who knows where. I wonder if a fun way to bring that...

4.2.1 Paladin class review

My thoughts on the 4.2.1 Paladin.

I really didn't enjoy the start of the game. Not the very start, since the first 5-7 levels are like any other melee char, but the region from level 7-20. You...

YASD 4.2.1 Dwarf Priest

Minor: 4.2.1 - Creeping coins values are different from real coins

It's really obvious when mithril/adamantine coins are going to turn out to be creeping because they are worth much less than real piles of coins - say, around the 400-500 mark where the real ones are...

Bug? 4.2.1 Monster alert/noticing behaviour when hit by spells out of LoS

YAWP V 4.2.1 Dwarf Paladin

My second win in 4.2.1. I'll puy my thoughts on the new paladin and spells in the Vanilla forum later. The game started very slowly, after a few easy level-ups having decent HPs and two blows with a...

Well not so much avoiding them entirely as stopping them all having LOS at once I think? Maybe I miss a trick about how to control the risk whilst fighting big groups of monsters.

Can’t use banishment or mass banishment to kill a horde of Vs or Ds for the loot though! Maybe that’s just something mages don’t do?
