Hmmm... often when I get to about 6 sources of a resistance, it says I have 100% anyway.

Stucked Stats

Hello again

Recently I've came across a really nasty bug.
Playing a Maia and a Mage my dex is currently 18/30.
Happily Buying dex potion from the BM, hoping to get my dex higher, paying a LOT of AU for that cheap dwarf.

My potion was quaffed but my dex remains the same!

The same happened (or didn't happened) while trying a chr potion from the dungeon, having no effect on my 18/66 !

Shouldn't my max be somewhere around 18/100 for each?

I seriously doubt this is a bug, but I could be wrong.
Potions of DEX (or of any other stat) only raise your stat so high (and quite possibly become less effective as you near that maximum point). In order to get them even higher you need Potions of *DEX. That asterisk makes a difference.

EDIT: changed exclamation point to asterisk, but apparently I'm still a little off base.

Exclamation marks simply means it's a potion?!

Check your stats on the 'C' screen. The first value is your base stat. This is the one risen by potions and cannot rise above 18/100. After that, race, class and equipment modifiers are added (or substracted). Probably you simply have a sum of -7 dexterity modifiers.

Well it's not my first ball game you know...

Any way I checked again
my basic Dex is 18 and my base Chr is 18/16, and for some reason it will not rise even after using !dex or !chr

Could the !*dex i used earlier somehow 'jammed' my stats?

BTW I just killed the spirit of the former Agnband maintainer :-)

Buzzkill is correct. A Potion of Dexterity will raise your base DEX as far as 18, but no further. To get from 18 to 18/100, you need Potions of *Dexterity*. This is an FAangband only feature, and the * potions occur about 10 levels deeper.

Somebody had to do it.

I'd like to see a joke super-rare monster added to the bones file that would generate the ghost (or lich, etc.) of The RNG and he would have maxed stats etc. Would make me chuckle.

And then recall.

Or killing Morgoth could open another level in which you have to battle the THE RNG. This way you could go on playing for a reason after officially winning.

It's starting to sound like the Secret Cow Level in Diablo if you do some bizarre action at a certain point you will be teleported to the lair of the RNG.
