Recent changes I like

I thought it would only be fair to Nick to list somethings I've noticed in v4 that I quite like (its too easy to only raise the complaints)

Changes I like.
  • I'm less scared to try new/unID's items.
  • Nexus stat-swap affect change is good.
  • Drop rates/depths seem much improved, so I actually wear some items early on, these include
    - Feather Falling
    - Amulet of infravision
    - Weapon of Slay Orc
    - Lantern (Everburning)
    - Potions of stat swap
    - Wands of slow, stun, hold
    - Wands of polymorph
  • Being a warrior lately, I'd hardly spend much time casting Detect Traps/Doors and Identify, but I guess this is now true regardless, which is pleasant.

Changes I'm not sure about
  • With the new ID system, if an artifact is in the level and you consume a !Englightenment, does the artifact become apparent in the items list window? Nothing says (unidentified) next to it anymore, so that implies it would be...
  • I still rarely try mushrooms, because they are (or used to be) 2/3 negative. Has this changed with the new ID system?
  • I wasn't quite sure what Remove Curse did... ...could I have removed the negative aspects of the Crown of Berutheil ?

No. You can't remove -3 INT/WIS or aggravation from Beruthiel, just the curse runes. And you can't remove Teleportation from rings of teleportation, though I don't understand how that works.

The teleport curse is power 100. You have to beat it with remove curse & *remove curse only goes up to 100 (50+d50). When you read ?remove curse or ?*remove curse it lists the curses with their power. Failing can cause an object to become fragile. Failing on a fragile item can destroy it.

slight derail here since we are talking about curses.

i dont like that you can *often* find curse items on low DL that have the stoneskin buff or whatever that other "makes you weak to X but strong to Y" curse is, because these can easily be sold for 1000gp or more.

I know you uberpros do not play with sell_on (like God intended) but those who do can exploit this. Just, the store should not buy cursed items, or at least should value curses differently than now. Because a rapier (+0,+0) *curse* should not sell for 1200gp.

That's fair; curses in themselves should probably have at best no effect on the sale value of an item.

Also note that you cannot uncurse the Crown Of Beruthiel, but you CAN uncurse similar randards.

Randards sounds like a hybrid of randarts and another word.
