It's Agamemnon. In the Dianetics mythos, he was the little brother of Quizzylump, the master Qwhylthing.

Nice robe, too.

The fast level gains are one of the many reasons that Dwarf Priest is one of the uber combos. It's definitely on the short list of easiest-winning race/class combinations.

I'm CL28 and I have 1% fail on Heal spell and to cast it costs a whopping 7% of my mana pool. O.O That is just nuts.

So with pConf and native pBlind and 225SP why would I even bother carrying !Healing?

Aggravate has pretty limited range in recent V--around 10 squares. (It used to be 20.) And it's not a good idea for low-HP characters. Orb really trails off in strength later in the game, by which point most priests are nearly pure melee/heal in any case.

Because 0% is better than 1%? But yeah, priests don't need much in the way of consumables.

That's actually a bug. Shooters aren't supposed to get supercharged AC.

Because when something breathes at you and you're left with single digit hps, you don't want to risk that 1% fail, which in many cases is doomed to happen at the worse time. Also if you don't have pStun and something stuns you, that 1% is probably gonna increase and you want to cure the stunning with a potion.
