I usually pick up BYSEPS, cast it once, then convert it. So I guess it's kind of useful?

It's really pretty useless unless you haven't found something better to spend mana on.

What about this:

WONAFYT: Summons a monster of your level to a tile next to you. If this monster is killed without any extra exploration, it gives you extra XP.

BYSEPS: Holding it in your inventory passively gives you atack bonus % equal to your level. Effect on use stays the same.

I think something like: The monster summoned grants +1 exp would work. It is half the bonus you get for killing something 1 level higher than you.

We already have IMAWAL to grant XP bonuses, and it's a nice +50%. Knock out a monster 2-3 levels higher than you and that gets really significant. A mere +1? Consolation prize to say the least...

How about it gives the monster a 20% miss chance, unstackable of course, which works like dodge.

Well Darvin, It wouldnt really encroach on IMAWAL. Both BURNDAYRAS and PISORF work as damage dealing gliphs, but they do so diferently, why cant IMAWAL and WONAFYT both grant extra XP in different ways?
Yes, 1 extra exp is bad, but that wasnt what I suggested. I think it should be something like 25%. WONAFYT would now be able to be used to get more mileage out of monsters of your level, while also allowing you to save exploration. The drawbacks are that you cant use regen tactics, and need to start the fight with less mana.

I still want to know what you guys think about my BYSEPS change...

Equal or lower level monsters are not a threat, it doesn't matter if they miss.

Oh yeah I forgot! This was an addition to this change!
Perhaps it should check one level above, then 2, then 3, so on until you hit the boss.
