Resist lightning/acid I squelch instantly; I rather get rid of clutter than be resistant in the early stages - same with ring of fire/cold resistance.

Regeneration gets used unless I am a halftroll, naturally. Paladins and priests love wisdom, everyone else squelches. Infravision is the mainstay early amulet for non-mages, with a mage I prefer regen.

I guess that makes infravision my favourite weak amulet ?



@AmyBSOD:

"Weak" when compared to later amulets like ESP. Obviously regeneration is better than no amulet.

Regeneration in a comp, the only time turns matter to me. Outside of a comp I have no problem Resting after each encounter. So Infravision, because yes, it can actually save your life.

Oh, I just learned that regeneration is for SP as well as HP. LOL

I had a patch once that made explicit, separate HP regen and SP regen flags. The problem was sorting out the display of the character flags screen; there's just not really any more room for more flags.

Just noticed this today myself. Beats up Infravision for me outside a Warrior game.

The advanced take is that mages should wear Paurhach if they can manage FA and don't have regen another way. The regen more than makes up for the loss in SP.
