Isn't there a save against it, since a few versions back?

I think there's still a save against the dispel player move, even in the 6.1.x+ release

Link please, I've lost track of the updates somewhat.

EDIT: mspells1.c still looks unresistable except for three rare cases.

Code:
        /* RF4_DISPEL */
        case 96+2:
        {
            if (!direct) return (FALSE);
            disturb(1, 0);
            if (blind) msg_format("%^s mumbles powerfully.", m_name);
            else msg_format("%^s invokes a dispel magic.", m_name);
            if (check_foresight())
            {
            }
            else if (mut_present(MUT_ONE_WITH_MAGIC) && one_in_(2))
                msg_print("You resist the effects!");
            else if (psion_mental_fortress())
                msg_print("Your mental fortress is impenetrable!");
            else
            {
                dispel_player();
                if (p_ptr->riding) dispel_monster_status(p_ptr->riding);
                learn_spell(MS_DISPEL);
            }
            break;
        }

Nothing really to do with the variant of the same name. Just makes the game quicker by giving you stuff.

@cold_heart - I found what I was thinking off & it's specific to mimics holding their form.

Has anyone else had an issue with improving weapon skills on a dragon? I'm not sure if it was an intentional change but I can't seem to get above +1 & I'm at clvl 18 & melee-ing around half the time.

It would be nice if it was called something different ("quick mode")?

I think the reference to Quickband as such may cause some ongoing confusion.

I'm just here to say that I'm glad that stuff like this is still possible. Winning is one to way find enjoyment, but I'll take dying in style winning every time.

There is an omission in the desciption of Morgana
It doesn't mention that she possesses the lethal ability to follow teleports

Does anti-magic help against blood curses

Anti-magic is very useful against blood curses
