So, I was playing Vicious Crypt. I had killed the boss and was just cleaning up when I died (foolishly) to the Death Protection outcome prediction bug. Bah! So, I make the character again to do it over again, and head out into the dungeon, and this is what I see:
Were you expecting a coherent message? Alweth does not deal with such trifles. Ignore him or watch the thread get locked!
I've stupidly taken Patches into Vanishing Oasis before, and it's trapped me on a little island without any monsters to kill!
Vanishing Oasis, Labyrinth, Rock Garden and Deep Swamp are three levels where you're really asking for it by bringing along Patches. Picking up WEYTWUT is always a good idea if you're packing Patches...
WEYTWUT is also the only way to get strike priority over a Gorgon/Goblin/anything else with first strike. More expensive than GETINDARE, but also more versatile. It can often be helpful to slow all the low level monsters with first strike, even if (especially if) you're going to leave them alone until later on, so that you don't have to worry about taking hits when you're mopping them up for a mid-fight level up. Removing blink and counter fireball are typically less useful effects, but certainly nothing to scoff at. If Patches cast WEYTWUT, I would have to start using him, and I'd rather that not happen.
