An analysis of healing in Angband

Hi,

I've put an analysis of healing in Angband up on my blog here
http://roguelikedeveloper.blogspot.c...n-angband.html

For those of you who don't want to go to the link or can't be bothered reading
the long article, here's a summary of my recommendations:

* Eliminate potions/staffs of cure light wounds and cure serious wounds.
* Replace *Healing* with Restore Health, which cures 100% of the players hit
points, but does not restore any status effects (cuts, stun, confusion, etc.).
However make Restore Health appear earlier in the dungeon (between Healing and
Cure Critical Wounds). Tone down Healing side effects to curing cuts, stun and
poison only.
* Make Heroism and Berserk Strength restore at minimum a % of hit points
(20% for Heroism, 30% for Berserk Strength).
* Make potions of Life, when used when the character is at maximum hit
points, reroll the character's life total, and use the new values, if they are
higher than the current character's life total.
* Add a potion of Regeneration, which appears at the same depth as cure
light wounds, but makes the character recovery health and mana and from cuts,
stun and posion rapidly for a short period of time (and cure light wound
effect).
* Add potions of Free Action and Resist Confusion/Hallucination.

Andrew

using a 3 !BS her will restore according to You almost all life... ie. 100/1000HP after quafing 3x!BS will be restored up to max? This is the same effects like quaffing 3x! of Healing. And off course Bersek Srength had extra combat effects - that's mean new !of BS is better than old ! of healing.

Except that healing recovers you from various status effects that Beserk Strength does not.

And BS is only more effective than healing iff you hitpoints are > 1000.
