The shops are a bit crap these days, keep surfacing when I run out of healing potions only to find that there's none in the shop.

Just had a run in with the ant queen, put on quite a bit of XP from just massacring her summoned minions.

Just blew up another useful wand!

Is there a higher chance of this happening with the spell "lesser recharging" than a scroll?

*Much* higher. Don't use the spell unless you are desperate, on a low-level object. (Staff of teleportation is the main use.)

Rechagring has a "power" value, which is something like 5 for "lesser", 40 for scroll/priest spell and 100 for "greater". Basically use scrolls, unless you're a mage with Greater Recharging.

Recharge Scroll is 50
Priest spell is cl+20
Mage lesser is cl/5 + 2 (ouch)
Mage greater is cl +50


If you have a question about spells, look at class.txt. In V, it is completely readable (unlike most variants.)

Sorry but what does that all mean? is 50 a 50% fail rate?

What's the penalty for encumbered movement from heavy armour? Just found some dwarven plate mail that gives +2STR and +2CON. It says the weight encumbers me but I haven't lost any blows per round. STR is a bit drained at the moment.

It's a "power level", which is compared to the level of the item plus a random factor to determine if recharging succeeds and how many charges to add, if it does. The formula would require looking in the code, but in practice, bigger is better here.

Encumbrance from armor just reduces your max SP based on how far over the weight limit you are. The weight limit is constant (i.e. not affected by STR or anything else). This is different from an arcane caster (mage/ranger/rogue) wearing gloves that don't have a DEX bonus or Free Action, note. That penalty is much more severe.

Lots of questions today. Just found two Elvenkind bits of armour, they're great for resistances. I have dragon scale mail of craftsmanship which has a high AC value and can be activated but I've just found leather armour of Elvenkind that increases stealth and gives nexus resistance but has much lower AC.

Which is better?

"the weight of your armor encumbers you" is telling you that you're over the weight limit determined by your strength for wearing armor without getting a penalty to mana. So, you're a caster, and your max mana has just been reduced a bit, which is usually not a big deal.

And the power of a spell is not the percent chance of success, in the case of recharging it's what gets checked vs the power of the wand/staff you're attempting to recharge. Maybe somebody wants to pull out the equation to demonstrate how Angband maths work?
