Kandrc--so right.
@appreciator--try a fast powerdive as a mage, down to around dl 80 with no ESP and bad HP (at which level there are so many vaults you're guaranteed to find good stuff fast.) I've been down roughly that far at base speed 3 @and less than 400Hp. Without ESP it's nerve wracking: PASS_WALL monsters everywhere. Sleeping instakill monsters. You're spending 10 SP every few turns on detection, so mana recovery after a fight becomes problematic. ESP is a huge, huge relief after that. It's a very different game: most critical gear becomes rod of light and staff of mapping, recharged all the time with recharge(I) (if you haven't found the dungeon book.)
