Curse Weapon scroll - "try by use"

So, I tried one from a stack of 2 that fell at 800', and now my puny kobold rogue has a -1/-2 cursed dagger for a weapon.

Store scumming the healer and the alchemist indicates they no longer sell remove curse scrolls.

What's a guy supposed to do? Store scum the black market?

Not sure why these scrolls are still in the game. This is no fun at all.

(This is with the current version of Vanilla.)

Have you tried using Enchant scrolls to break the curse? And, yes, you would need to buy Enchant scrolls from the Black Market as well.

Honestly I don't know why they're in the game right now. There've been discussions for ways to make curses more interesting (e.g. simply sticky-cursing the weapon without also ruining it, and/or making you go on a mini-quest to un-sticky it), but as it stands right now that scroll, and Curse Armor scrolls, are basically there to go "ha ha screw you" to some small percentage of players.

I'd prefer to remove them also. I thought there was a change that made them either sticky *or* bad, but not both. I wonder why that's not there. Anyway, I'm in favor of chucking them until someone wants to fix curses. Any oppositions?

@bluefish remove curse scrolls wouldn't even work when the store sold them since curse item scrolls put heavy curses on.
