Stat gain actually accelerates once your internal stat is higher than 18. You can go from 18 to 18/30 in a single potion, which is internally equivalent to gaining 3 points in the stat because every...

You can always TO a monster on the turn that it steps into view. As long as it's not faster than you are, this is perfectly safe.

The hockey stick is in fact the most obvious bizarre side effect of asymmetric LOS, and I don't think people laud it, they just recommend watching out for it because it's weird and nonintuitive. Do...

My grounding assumption with regards to exploits is that if you close an exploit, players will find some other mechanic to abuse instead. So there's not inherently any problem with closing exploits....

Yep, that's a classic. Gotta be careful when you're near the edge of the screen! If you aren't already, I strongly suggest making the main game window as large as possible.

You're stashing too much for a hypothetical endgame on the assumption that you make it that far. You should be carrying at least some of most "endgame consumables" for the rare situation in which you...

Depends on what you need; the launchers actually do a pretty good job of being sidegrades of each other. Cubragol is probably the best "stat stick" launcher. Belthrondig and Bard are great for...

But yeah, Thorin is super good. Big CON and STR bonuses, sound and chaos resists are frequently handy, and acid immunity is always nice, if perpetually overvalued on these forums. ;)

Yes, but there's no "just" about it -- Vigor is the most reliable way to restore drained stats. It's worth saving every one you find in case you have a bad run-in with Time Hounds or something.
