Really? Cursed.

A Pair of Leather Sandals of Annoyance [1, -6] (-8) {cursed}
dropped by a Green naga at 350 feet (level 7)

Cursed.
-8 stealth, speed.
Aggravates creatures nearby.


Thanks identify by use! Luckily a pack of novice mages made sure this ironman character wouldn't suffer long.

It looks as if the novice mage has a new strategy.

1. Charm hapless naga.
2. Give naga cursed boots.
3. Wait.
4. Have rarely occurring victory celebration.

Much better than their old strategy

1. Cast easily resistible spell (x3).
2. Charge into melee.
3. Run away.
4. Die.

Off-topic, but why don't these novice mages carry a bow? That's standard equipment isn't it?

Yeah, but cursed egos are incredibly rare now. Even if it did kill you, it's just a fraction of all games--not much more risk than dying to an acid trap on dl 1 was in earlier versions.

I strongly recommend that you make it a top priority to play priest or paladin with PB2, or else buy ?rCurse, when playing ironman.

Not to mention, an early short-distance teleport spell (portal) improves survivability by a large amount.

High-Elf Paladin is a pretty effective combo for ironman. (Adequate WIS and stealth, great other stats and abilities)

I won on my very first attempt at a dwarf priest ironman. That was the suggested race/class combo. It seemed pretty strong, and built for ironman.

I didn't use alter reality, but if you have no qualms about abusing it, alter reality makes the endgame a joke.

You might as well use teleport level unless you are abusing ironman. Someone needs to do a feature request to remove the alter reality spell. I do too many. How about it? Anyone?

I don't like removing things, but I would happily open a feature request to nerf it in some way (e.g. with a 500-turn time delay). Would that be acceptable?

No. It serves *only* for abuse in ironman. No one should ever use it for any other reason. The only fix is to remove it.
