Assuming it's the same as in ZAngband/ToME, it gives you a 95% saving throw, which is a lot better than most non-magic-using classes would otherwise be able to get.

The biggest plus of having Anti-Magic is that it prevents the Amberite Blood Curse's statue-paralysis effect !! Without Anti-Magic, that statue-paralysis may happen regardless of whether you have Free Action or not! The statue-paralysis is downright bad because the Blood Curse can summon the worst at one go and you'd be dead before the effect wears off, if at all!

Free Action still reduces the "you feel like a statue!" paralysis from 1d13 turns to I think 1d2 (or maybe just 1?).

Antimagic doesn't have any special bonus there, it's just that it's a large bonus to saving throw and blood-curse effects allow a save to resist.

I wouldn't say it reduces the statue-paralysis to only just 1-2 turns. Definitely at least more turns than that. I lost a 900HP full health Baphomet possessing Possessor character a few years ago due to a status-paralysis. I had Free Action on board, yes. But, I didn't have Anti-Magic.

If you're at the point where you're fighting Amberites, there are nasty enough monsters around that your character can probably be killed in 2 turns. Just saying.

smh. That's right. See this screenshot for a prime example of what I mean with the status-paralysis:

When you are at deeper depths, all bets are off!!!
