I agree that Recharge is too reliable. I think it should probably have increasing chances to backfire depending on the level of the wand/staff. But at the very least, Tap should have a high chance ( (100 - CL)% ? something like that) of destroying the item.

I wonder if the fact that it is a gnome mage is skewing the results given their extremely high device skills? What are the results for a human mage, the baseline middle ground?

Another spell that might be too reliable is dimension door. Also worth looking at is that you can DD into vaults by aiming next to them & missing.

I haven't played Angband in years, and had a fun time with my gnome mages over the past week. The new version took some getting used to, but I think I learned to appreciate the direction that the game is taking. Some of the more tedious activities have been jettisoned without throwing off balance or feel.

I was a bit skeptical about the lack of selling items to the shops, but quickly realized that it liberated me to spend more of my energy exploring dungeons, hunting monsters, and searching for rare items that I actually wanted to use myself.

The identification system has taken a bit longer to adjust to... I'm still not sure if it improves game play, though maybe it does make sense thematically. The only way to identify scrolls and potions seems to be try reading/quaffing, which can be dangerous, or giving them to shopkeepers and buying them back if they're worthwhile, which can be expensive. I'm getting used to it, though.

Anyway, I should be fully recovered from the devastating loss of my most recent gnome by the time the next comp is announced. Looking forward to it!

Yes, not difficult. Useful but I think it is too good.

Congratulations to Sphara! Several winners this time, it seems that mages have done well in the class restructure.
