Bat Form (Necromancer)

I didn't appreciate Bat Form at first. I saw the speed boost and thought "Oh, I can maybe use this to get away from normal speed creatures." But it's a really amazing way to explore! From level 3 a Necromancer can scoot around picking up treasures, finding stairs, and picking his fights carefully. There's not much XP to be gained in this, but you need equipment/money/dive or climb more than XP at times.

From shape.txt:
values:SPEED[3] | STEALTH[3] | INFRA[5]
effect-msg:taking bat form

Not sure what that combat info means exactly. It's supposed to be +0 to hit, -10 to dam and +10 to AC but my to dam seems to drop much more than this. Anyway, the speed, stealth and infra benefits are obvious.
