!Experience

I am currently playing a high-elf mage, iron man. I just stumbled on a !Experience on dlvl 30 and currently @ is clvl 27.

I am tempted to have @ drink the potion, but worry that doing this now at my current clvl and dlvl (rather than later when level gain is much harder) won't be to @'s advantage. Thoughts?

There'd be no question if I were playing a hobbit or gnome mage.

Of course, I completely expect to find more !experience but a bit later on. I just worry that I might make things harder for the next few lvls and while I try to find stat potions.

You get a flat amount of experience (100k points) from those potions, so it's not worth saving. The only downside to gaining levels early is that levels are your primary source of restoring drained stats in the early game, but you're largely past that point. Drink away!

Quaff immediately. EXP gain is easier deeper in iron man just as in ordinary play, and 100,000 EXP is more valuable at cl 27 than cl 35 (say.) Also, slots are to valuable to waste.

I drank it...went from clvl 27 to clvl 29. Rather close to clvl 30 now...and much closer to rift from Kelek's (Draebor dropped both Kelek's and Resistances a little while back!)

Thanks for the input.

Edit: Oops I did not mean Kelek's...but Raal's.

Also, there is this risk: It breathes frost. Your potion of experience shatters!
