Maybe vanilla isn't as hard as frogband. Sure. It isn't. But in current V, you are just forced NOT to explore some early vaults, without TO. The monsters dmg/turn is too much.

I understand your point, but the way the game is designed, nerfing TO would make it massively more difficult. So what do you suggest? Lower breath damage? Lesser OOD vaults? Save throw against breaths and mana attacks?
I tend to agree with this. A while back TO was also downgraded from being a beam spell to a bolt, which considerably reduced the "spamming" factor.
