Good question, probably, but I can't tell right now because my STR seems to be above a threshold where it makes a difference.

Ball maps a path to the targeted grid, and then explodes there; if no targeted grid (just a direction), it just goes in the direction until it hits something. Strike just hits the targeted grid directly, which probably amounts to the same thing as a ball in effect, except that you don't have the option to just fire in a direction.

Yeah, that would make a big difference if you're firing blind!

I've added what I learned about the first two Druid spellbooks into my spreadsheet:

@Nick: Would you be OK with me adding some info to the in-game documentation? Like, the duration of Confuse Monster and Slow Monster jump out at me immediately.

You actually do have the option to fire in a direction, but you're going to be deeply disappointed if you do because it centers on the player.

The other difference is not being able to splash by targeting a wall

I checked this... you can still target an empty square next to a wall.

Food use for rapid heal seems high? If you're using it regularly you really want to be carrying a full stack of food rations. My suggestion is halving that.

Me thinks you have lost sight that the first spell book provides remove hunger? I occasionally find myself using the two spells in close succession, sometimes for several heal/hunger cycles.

Of course, if you managed to win in 30K turns while forgetting about resist poison and remove hunger in your spell books then you clearly know some things that I don't
