Nice way to start the day -- !Experience!

After the recent Half-Troll Warrior win I decided to jump back to mages because they're just so awesome. I'm also trying randarts for the first time. Decided to try a human mage for the fast levelling and see how it goes. And upwards around clev19 (which doesn't take all that long to achieve) I get a "superb treasures" feeling, so I exhaustively explore the level, never finding anything of interest, until the very last room which held a !Experience. Went from clev 19 to clev 30 in one fell swoop, from barely into the "d" spellbook to completing it! Also found a OOD rod of Acid Balls which is super great item to get early. Wormtongue dropped a shield of Resistance, so HuShain is off to the races! As always with early mages element resisting uniques are tough if not impossible because MM is just too slow unless you get a nice long hallway or big room to phase around in alot.

Other nice finds are a short bow of Power and a shovel of digging +5.

Y'all just jelly. Now I have to take it really slow and careful and post a smack-down YAWP.

haha you guys were 1 hp away from being right. Poisoned by a group of algroths I TP'd away and *took a step* before realizing I was poisoned. 3hp -> 1hp. Luckily had cure crits with me....doh, after playing a warrior I need to stay scared more as a mage again and just never allow melee.

You have 100% Saving Throw with a wisdom of 18/130. I figured it would take close to 18/200 for a perfect saving throw. Are there class/racial modifiers affecting this too?

Yes. Priests and mages have the best saving throws in the game. Races apply a minor modifier as well, but the importance is roughly class > WIS score > race. Even with maxed WIS a half-troll warrior will have a not-that-great saving throw.
