Drains Experience

In response to that thread on "see invisible": I had always chucked away any weapon that "drains experience". What exactly is that? I had assumed that it slowly drains your xp away over time. If that isn't the case, I might have tossed away some really nice items!

It drains experience, but so slowly that you won't notice the effect once you reach about cl 10 or so. It drains something like 1 point every 100 player turns, which is really a small effect, especially at depths where you need See Invisible.

I concur that certain items are worth wielding even if they do drain XP. I can think of one in particular.

The Palantir and the One Ring spring to mind.

They call it the one ring in Angband lol, I don't know what the Palantir is sounds like a sword.

Palantir is a crystal ball, about a feet in a diameter. Works as a video conferencing device. There are only seven pieces made, and they allow the Dark one to control the users' mind (that's a bit over the usual video phonecall thing, isn't it?)
