To be clear: if an item has a high resist and you don't know it, you will eventually find it out if you wear it. If you aren't wearing it, it means you almost certainly have something better for the...

I just don't understand the claim that rune ID is either tedious or slow.

There is no reason to ID things that aren't obvious, or easily determined through experimentation. (Brands, most slays,...

Do people run Amiga hardware, or is it mostly emulated? I agree Amiga was way before its time.

Drain life is way less painful than drain stats, especially str and dex. And usually undead are glass cannons easily dispatched by archery.

Here is an alternative, if you don't like the +1 display. Show fast action as a multiplier, so +1 movement and fast cast (and + 10 shot) are shown as x2. But whatever you do, don't follow the...

@David:
No! And again no! Fast movement and the like are NOT equivalent to +10 speed, and it is misleading to show them as such. The issue is that the archery description is broken. What is shown as...

With +3 speed and fast walk, your walking speed is increased by 2, not by +10: i.e it becomes+16. In general, fast actions take 1/2 normal energy, be it walking, shooting, or casting. Note that Fast...

I agree about making poison damage proportional per turn, if not quite so brutal as *Posband. Somewhere between 5 and 10% per turn seems about right.

Clear stun ASAP. Your melee goes way down with even the first level of stunning, and device/spell fail rates go up significantly.

@David--
I use them whenever my prime stats are above 18/09. First, use the off-primary stat swap pots to get up above 18/00. Then use the primary ones to recover from any degradation.

This strategy is *very* old. It comes down to 'stat gain at DL 40' and it goes back to well before I joined rgra a dozen years ago.
