Shatter is earthquake-attack. It obliterates you. Seriously, two consecutive earthquake crushes + other M damage from them can cause something like 800 points of damage. Don't fight in closed space where earthquake can't displace you.

Earlier they could be of some use (while one sometimes still wears resistance rings ...).
The ball spell activation is at least of some use for earlier chars.
I believe we have been discussing this before.

Did they? I remember them giving elemental brand for any melee-weapon and that was seriously overpowered feature. I don't recall them giving immunity. IMO immunity would be less powerful than brand.

Oh! New thought: the element rings, if nothing else, should have an activation for magical protection of related element, providing double defense in one package. Which is almost like immunity, only weaker

Ok, that explains the level l falling apart. I thought it was just the earthquake spell, the single solitary time I met him. And it is the raw magic storm that kills. 600+ damage

Well it's good to know a couple of my suggestions were so good that they decided not to wait until I came up with them and just went ahead early. Somebody is lucky I'm not an angry person. I've heard of families disappearing for such gun-jumping

I actually find the elemental brand spell to be quite useful, although more for ammo than for melee weapons. If you run out of decent ego ammo, taking some say magic seeker arrows, giving them an elemental brand, and then enchanting weapon on them to get their to-hit and to-dam up can make them nearly as powerful as some of the ego ammos you find.
