Or...

Give to store and wait until you find another one. Most of those wands you don't really care about using and probably wind up in your squelch list.

At least that's my MO. Though which wands are useful depend on what class you are playing anyway and which rods you have/plan on carrying. Angband has always been a game with a ton of items, but most of them are completely useless for certain classes (or just useless for any class...). If you treat it like Diablo or something it will probably drive you nuts at some point.

Just put all the useless things on ignore and focus on the small number of items which you actually need for survival (and hoarding for late game).

same. if a wand doesnt damage a monster (or poke a hole in the dungeon, both of which are obvious when used) then you don't need it.

test wands only on live monsters, not on golems, demons, or vortices.

i really only ever use stone 2 mud, TO and annihilation unless a very early OOD wand shows up. it's just better to sell the wand otherwise.

i'll be happy to ignore the fact that players will, at some point, want to set money drops to (ignore), which means a OFF player will only pick up that which they walk on, but the idea that a a OFF player makes as much as a ON player is ridiculous. OFF players do not have the option to pop down to the dungeon and come back with 30k gold in 50 turns, ON players do.
Also, if you don't kill, you don't earn.
It's nice that you believe this, but it doesn't make it true. $$ drops from monsters and treasure found in walls is more $$ with selling off than with selling on. @ can certainly earn $$ by not killing, both from $$ found in rooms and veins of treasure in the walls.

Quote:
On the downside, carrying items has both a weight and encumbrance problem, which is the offset to earning more.
And I find that with selling off, I earn more than enough to buy what I want, and @ doesn't have the weight and encumbrance problem.

How should the two numbers for shields be weighed?

Killed a couple uniques, but the ogre one is too hard, even slowed.

Slowed, killing the unique took 5 of my 8 emergency mushrooms, and boy it looks like it wasn't worth it.

All he really had was a ball and chain (10,8) and unidentified rune. Probably better to save the emergency mushrooms for later?

Are the effects of a potion of berserk strength not shown in weapon damage? It only increase it by something like 2.
