But what do you *do* with all that gold? I'd rather use valuable inventory slots for things I actually might use.

I tend to hunt early Hydras for EXP as a mage. They don't have too much HP, and fall quickly to cold attacks. But yeah, 9 headed is entirely to be avoided--as are hydra lifts in general. It is...

Bow of power is only an issue of you find it really early. Rather than nerf it, perhaps make it a bit deeper? It's suitable for around DL 25.

Yes, nexus Q and v are rendered helpless.

In any case, I have since found Stormwalker and an Elven cloak, so I gave up 3 stealth for lightning immunity and the ability to escape. Much, much safer,...

After one very close call, I *only* fight summoners in ASCs or otherwise constrained locations. Fundin summoned multiple summoners, and I barely made it out. Without phase, this is way too dangerous.

You can't phase. But you can still TO. It mostly means less softening up monsters with archery before going to melee. Since that post, I finally found gloves with FA, so I could swap in a CON ring...

Star has a good activation. Phial recharge time is too short once you get a little speed, and in any case most spellcasters don't need it at all. In contrast, rods of mapping are a pretty late find.

Sky--
Do try 4.2
I hated it at first, but the 4.2 Mage is interesting, and the Blackguard is *really* different, now that some annoying bugs are gone. I am not sold on 4.2 ranger, to be fair.

Another observation: in portrait mode on a phone, there is unused real estate beneath the character summary. Move the monster list there. Also, make it a little bigger. I can't quite read it.

In V they did 3d4 damage, then in the "ridiculously easy era" they did 3d4 damage with fire brand, comparable to a (+0,+5) longbow. Then it went to 1d4 with fire brand. Now it is back to 3d4, no...
