When you find that extra special item at a shallow level..

Don't get me wrong, I love scrolls of Mass Banishment.
They are essential endgame material

But it's really not what you're hoping to find on that early 2-7 level.

Very true; however, you can use it as an opportunity to dive aggressively and find the first small treasure vault for the scroll to use. Make sure you can dig granite.

Problem, of course, is that identifying it used it so it's gone.

I love Mass Banishment. Who doesn't love Mass banishment

But read while sitting at the top of down stair case in case it summons nasties, it did exactly nothing for me....

Ranger, dlvl 9, 2-5, finds his first artifact - a bow! Joy...

the Short Bow of Tuorin (x2) (-2,-22) {??}
Found lying on the floor at 450 feet (level 9)

Oh that's so mean for a ranger - an artifact bow that won't do any damage.

In a recent game, I did the old read on a staircase and my @ instantly died. A vault was too close and had enough baddies that the early found Mass Banishment Scroll penalties surpassed my @'s hps. That hadn't happened in a long time. Made me laugh rather than cry.

the second most humiliating way i died was finding a Kelek really early on and boasting about it here on the forum, and being told i would die from casting MBan, me saying "lol no" AND THEN DYING from casting MBan.

Most humiliating was rearranging my CL50 gear for the Morgoth fight and not checking that i had FA, and dying to a group of ghasts & ghouls.
