Acquirement generates one GREAT (most likely ego) item at your current depth +10--nice, but nothing you aren't just as likely to find in the next lesser vault . The wand of TO, however, is guaranteed to be useful.

This is true, I've heard.

David--
See my previous post. Yes, Acquirement gets better, but vaults also become more common, and even a lesser vault is likely to generate an ego item. And vault items are also generated out-of-depth.

I'm not addressing any of that. I'm just saying if you want the most out of your scroll, read it in the dungeon.

The correct answer is to kill 800 aimless merchants and buy both.

I'd take the TO wand without a 2nd thought. These things get electrocuted or run out of charges all the time and you can never have too many charges. Having 70 charges just means you get to TO whole packs of time hounds.

Surely you banish packs of time hounds? I save those scrolls for no other purpose. Trying to TO a pack of hounds one by one sounds risky to me.

Wouldn't it be great if there was a rare TO ball wand, that could work on packs.

I tend to save all my banish scrolls for the final fight. I'm more likely to destruct or TO if you situation is too dangerous to deal with by other means.

Yep. Staff of destruction all the way. But time hounds ain't nothin. Hounds of Tindalols, tho. Fear them!
They are foulness incarnate as they appear around the corners of time and space...
