That's the nature of Sil, you need a plan to deal with every kind of threat by the end game.

I guess I needed Keen Senses???
Keen Senses should be treated as a requirement.

I almost never take keen senses. I usually find a "haunted dreams by the time Sulrauko start showing up.

There was an amulet of haunted dreams in inventory in this chardump, I'm not sure why one would worry about having keen senses in this particular case. (Possibly it was un-ided, but if I don't have loremaster by this point I focus pretty hard on making sure all my amulets get identified.)

yes, as i contemplated that death I decided that I'll always take keen senses by sulrauko territory, unless i've found a true sight

i also rely more on haunted dreams/truesight than keen senses. rauko-bane helps a bit once you've slogged past the first four.

I don't use Keen Senses much anymore unless very low Perception. Not ideal, but manageable and Lore Master, Bane and Master Hunter are all on my wanted list so Keen Senses is actually quite expensive

I usually take it, the extra sight range is good anyway but I'd hardly call it necessary. I also tend to end up with a big stack of !True sight which I never actually used. So there's always the option of using consumables.

I get it more for the extra effective light, but it's still useful against invisible enemies. I don't really like to use haunted dreams, I've had a shadow show up after 5-10 turns too often and nearly kill me while I was trying to fight something else.

(Just butting in to note that Song of the Trees exists if you take more perception abilities than song abilities )
