Crystal Ball now costs 5 gold to activate.
Darvin wrote:Problem I have with the new crystal ball is that the item is totally disqualified in purist runs, but so long as you don't spam it like crazy (once every two levels and you're gold) you're fine if you bring a 50 gold prep. Remember that multi-boss scenarios drop a 50 gold cash infusion, so there's plenty to keep a crystal ball fueled in the actual boss fight, you just gotta ration up until that point.
Dracul's sanguine effect is now of highly limited value, and its primary effect is increasing your piety gain with Dracul. You'll actually get far more healing by converting the piety you earn into blood swells than you will from actually using sanguine.
Not happy with the Bloodmage change. He needs to be made less dependent on sanguine. He's not even a caster class...
It'll be interesting to see what the new XP curve looks like. Someone post the new formula once they've figure it out (I can't play right now)
That alone would fix WONAFYT.

Not really. By the time you've explored about a fifth of the level there is no shortage of equal-level monsters to choose from, but your odds of having found WONAFYT are quite low. By its nature, this glyph is only useful if found in the very early phases of exploration, but your chances of finding it that early are relatively low. Also there's a comment in the other thread about the XP-puzzle being broken, which indicates that this is just a flat nerf and not a redistribution.
On consideration of the the new XP curve, it occurs to me that it may have the opposite of its intended effect. Because it will now be that much harder to reach level 10 (less bonus XP overall) it may now be more important than ever to maximize every bit of bonus XP you can get your hands on. I'll have to wait till I can play a few rounds to see how it turns out, but I think the biggest impact here is that it will be a stealth buff to Tikki Tooki, the Fighter, and WEYTWUT, and a stealth nerf to IMAWAL (whose only real use is multiplying large bonus XP values).
