is that book actually useful early on? I remember finding the top priest book with a paladin very early on (before I had any of the other higher books) and I was rather disappointed because I was 10 levels away from being able to learn the spells, even more before I could cast any with reasonable failure rate.

Mages and priests can learn the spells in dungeon spellbooks much earlier than the hybrid classes can, so there might well be something castable in there as early as clvl 10 or so. However, manastorm is gonna have to wait.

(In older versions creatures used to try and summon anyway, so you'd get spammed with summoning messages with no result).

Anyway, my 'whoa' moment: (although this was more stupid/lucky than awesome)

Playing a paladin, fighting dragons/demons while partially surrounded. I've been healing up when I get low, but leave one a bit too long and then fail on the cast attempt. One of the dragons chooses that moment to unleash a big breath on me, I think single resisted lightning or something of the sort. This takes me down to 31HP and I'm looking at a <more> prompt, knowing that two or three other creatures in range of me have yet to move. I hit space bar a few times, fearing the worst. There are no more breaths, just a lot of melee attacks, and I come out the other end still alive and on 3 HP.

True, but QuzzlyWuzzlyWup looks utterly awesome in Shockbolt tiles!

Reader, I <s>married him</s> took the stairs.



I didn't realise such out-of-depthery was even possible outside of vaults.

That could be Disguised Checkerboard, I encountered one in dlvl 28, Ungoliath came out with +20 speed and promptly breathed darkness. Timo pointed out the discuised checkerboard to me, here is his post

Don't think I've encountered either of those before, although I guess I might have done at a CL/DL where it didn't seem unduly nasty.

They're relatively new (like, in the last year or so). Someone was feeling creative.
