Except sometimes you don't WANT to get out immidiately simply beacue you can't kill the shades in the real world, so you start out killing bandits (who are easy fodder for levels) and get yourself well and cursed - after exploring a little bit to pick at least a few thigs up. You manage curses by alternatively stoning plants and killing them to keep cursed - stoning also helps with leveling. Then you clear the curse by kiling shades and other stuff, pick up everything you explored in the curse world, get cursed again, kill the shade, grab the charm and kill the dragon.
One more use of IMAWAL - if you find it and ENDISWALL early with the Sorceror, Bloodmage or anyone who wants to go around looking for powerups - you can stone stuff and ndiswall immediately to grab a gold pice. Escpecially if farming Mysterea or Binlor piety, and or if you have plants around. I do this on quest/pqi/badgehunting runs in sub-vicious.
