I mean, more speed does make you better at things -- the difference between +40 speed and +30 speed is getting about 10% more stuff done per unit of "real time", which means that fights won't last as long, monsters will have fewer opportunities to summon nasties, force you to use consumables, etc.

But yeah, speed starts to wane in comparison to other equipment benefits once monsters are no longer able to double-turn you.

Like I said I'll take a hit of 10 speed for a +15 damage ring when base is still +27 and self haste making it 37. I'm still fast as f boi.

@Nick or anyone that can help.

I'm not getting saves on the nightlies. Its showing my vanilla saves but after I save a game on the patch it just disappears. Makes it kinda hard to playtest.

That is odd. What operating system? If windows, are you using a complete new folder? There are some issues with the latest build, but I wouldn't have expected this to be one of them.

If you have two copies installed, the save file open will sometimes show the wrong directory.

It's not harmful--just make sure the directory browser is in the correct location. It's not a new issue.

YUS!

Attempting to clear a medium vault and I got everything but one creep... an eye in the center and, with only 230 Hp, I'm too scared that I cant close the gap before it blasts me to bits before I get to a pillar for cover. No TO. Screw it, quaff a speed pot and step in, summons a Dracolich. PD puts me back in LOS from another opening, another Dracolich. AMD off screen that I kited away earlier is back, breaths off screen, staff of TS gone. Take one step to get around the corner. The two Dracolich are in the corridor behind and the AMD is coming up fast. Kill a wraith and OFG, *Destruction*. Quick check, yep 12 squares away. The AMD, both Dracolich, and the eye gone!

Boots of speed +10. Worth.
