Their strength penalty, plus how heavy (and numerous) their books are means for much of the game you really don't have any spare weight. Especially if you don't play with WoR, because that means you...

I can't imagine how ridiculously powerful Rogues must have been before 4.2 then. I recently pulled off my second Rogue win, and aside from the fact that the RNG decided Wands of Annihiliation would...

Sounds like a demon pit. I'd just waddle right on by. There will be more rings of speeds *not* being sat on by an Army of the Damned.

I would strongly recommend everyone try it a couple of times. It's amazing how much of an impact losing access to the town has on the game. Lots of gear that you mostly ignore (like Staves of Cure...

Assuming its the same as Vanilla, Berserk Strength also makes you immune to fear and gived you a to-hit bonus. Not worth it (except the fear resistance) early, but once your AC gets higher, -10 is...

Pretty sure 4.2.x removed the spellcasting penalty for wearing gloves. The only armor-based penalty now I think is the reduction in SP if your armor is too heavy.

EDIT: Sorry, misread your...

I usually forgo the !rCold and !rHeat. The only times I find myself wanting them is for Scarha, Smaug and Itanagast. So if I find a few on the same level, score. Otherwise, whatever. I also dont swap...

They are very useful for classss that arent Rogues though. Not every class gets 100% trap disarm, and some traps are *nasty* and some vaults are full of them. Yeah, the fact the disable is temporary...

Yeah, if you like stealthy play, Blackguards arent going to be fun. Personally, I dont care much about stealth. If theres something nasty, I prefer to keep my distance. :)

Also note though that you gain health as you lose magic. So you will have faster regeneration so long as you have mana.

And I dont think its ever a problem for paladins. You tend to have as many slots as spells you can learn for paladin in my experience.
