Staff of Warding

This is probably my favorite staff for all around versatility and gameplay flavor. I'm curious what the limitations on the warding glyph are... I imagine certain uniques like dragons and Throne room baddies could cross the glyph, right?

Meanwhile, here's a couple ways I love to use the staff of warding:

On charge/dodge characters... If I get up against a horde of people I can't defeat, I drop a ward in a long hallway then bounce back and forth.

If they start flanking you, move one space away from your current glyph then take another step and drop a second ward. Now you have a little protective bubble to bounce between and kill people at your leisure!!

Trapping annoying archer uniques!!
Pulled this off last night. I couldn't catch the Gatekeeper archer cat unique, so I led him into a smallish room then sealed the two exits. The long chase came to a gruesome end when he realized he could run no longer.

Glyphs of warding also factor into the procedural generation of this game... and I think that is SUPER COOL.

Last night I found a Ringrauko on floor 500' imprisoned by 9 ward glyphs. Who had done that??? So many questions, and only my trusty longsword to extract answers...

Share your Staff of Warding stories!

No monster can cross the glyph. Monsters can break them, with a level-dependent chance each attempt.

Pretty sure in Sil it's actually Will dependent. The unique cats for instance still have a lot of trouble despite being quite deep. Anyway was playing with 1 today & they can be weird because of how the AI paths. For instance Belegweth can quite easily walk through 1 as if it's not even there but won't try if he can find an alternative path.
