I do the inscriptions, but I never resort to them unless I'm missing a book. It would be better to always use the number, but I just find the mnemonics easier with 3 letters instead of letter-number-letter. Maybe if I just thought of it as two keystrokes (number-letter) it would be better.

No the spell books should be slotted.
If you're a nec/bg Into the shadows ALWAYS slots into slot A if you've got it
Similarly, Dark Rituals should ALWAYS slot into slot B regardless of whether I've got Into the shadows.

I understand there are ways of using inscriptions (I dabble), but reprogramming my fingers to use p3b instead of pcb after 30 years of orb of draining being pcb is hard - besides, I've always used my left hand for spells and my right hand for movement on my keyboard. The numbers are too high up on the keyboard.

So when my "Intro" book gets burned, my Mushrooms of Vigor should move to slot "a"?

Is it easiert to reprogramm your fingers to "pbb" now that the Orb got moved to the second book?
Did you not stop to carry the first priest book once you found some dungeon books?
My default attack is on the "F5" key. The Orb for priests, Magic missiles for mages, standard ammo (f0) for everybody else, all set up by .prf files. "#" is default attack to nearest target.
For priests, "F5" was mapped to "p3b". Always works, no matter which books get burned. And if the Orb is now in the second book, i only need to change the keymap to "p2a", and not retrain my fingers.

It really was difficult to make that switch.

I never have. Honestly I've always carried all my spellbooks (except in inventory crushes when I would drop book a and immediately recall and rebuy the books when the inventory was resolved.

I finally did this with this kobold nec when I found Corruption of Spirit to be useless and I never used the book a spells once my intel/level was high enough to zero% to the higher level attack spells

One - there's work involved in getting to know how to program the macros
Two - there's work involved in setting them up the macros
Three - F5 is _way_ up there on my keyboard.


I don't play the game to work. I appreciate all the work other people have put into the game - but to me it's not supposed to be work

Setting up macros isn't work. In fact, there was an attempt to keep book letters fixed. It turned out to be unpopular...
