Spell and curse damage is sometimes random, but based on monster depth. A few spells have high damage variance (water ball does 50-300 at 5000'), but even in these cases an average would be better than nothing. You automatically learn the damage on melee attacks eventually, but not spells.

As it is, I'm always calculating these values by hand.
Yes, I like this. It wouldn't be too hard to do either. Let's get bebo to add it to the list of stuff awaiting Takkaria's views ...
