I'm asking because it's something I run into every run these days, and it impacted my gameplay quite a bit. Having fool proof ways to deal with it would improve my efficency in any dungeon.
Also, taking that into account, IMAWAL seems worse than ever, while ENDISWALL sometimes feels like a godsend. I also find myself having to use LEMISI quite a bit more in the endgame because of all this.
I keep WONAFYT around for a level or two, sometimes more. I reckon most players use it to build a popcorn bowl and unclog the early map's arteries a little. And since it invariably appears near the entrance, it's actually not an unwelcome find.
With the nerf in XP gain for higher-level kills, IMAWAL has started taking a back seat to the effects of WONAFYT and WEYTWUT. Its usefulness increases when the map doesn't spawn one of those two, when a map is heavy with plants / non-XP foes, or when worshipping EM. I'm satisfied with its position in the game, though to make the glyph a little more competitive we could re-order its bonus calculation to take place after any +XP effects instead of before.
