Under rating threshold (show) Do enemies have experience they randomly start with? And can they level up when attacking? Or was this just from the chaos effect? I Just died from a Mimic wearing a chaos helm that immediately sprayed quickening after we touched.

Under rating threshold (show) @The_Anonymus: You're right, the lightning weapon doesn't activate a quickening when hitting an enemy. I didn't test this yesterday because I thought I might lose the bolt if I threw it but, today I found that it can be reused as a throwing weapon and it shoots lightning as it flies through the air. It's awesome. :) However now I'm scared for enemies wielding a lightning bolt. lol... :(

Under rating threshold (show) @Toast: The Cog weapon has a built in "?" enchant (chaos enchant). That thing is made up of the same thing as the RNG (Random Number God) altar you use to get random things. So yeah, hitting an enemy with that may randomly cause enemies to experience the same effect as being hit with an XP Rune (quickening, Level Up, Temp. Haste).

Under rating threshold (show) No, no, this is strange. I was running along and I suddenly saw a vamp. So I quickly threw my cog at it and it suddenly got a quickening (saw it float into air, quickening style) and needless to say, I died...

Under rating threshold (show) The Chaos Rune or "?" rune that doesn't change names even when you eat an identify rune is very rare or a secret part of the game. enchanting it to a weapon causes random effects on enemies you hit/attack like quickening, confusion, bleed (poison), stun, teleport, and sometimes when you're lucky, it even causes explosions like the bomb weapon.

Under rating threshold (show) Monsters only quicken when hit with an XP rune. most of the time that kills you. Or if you're lucky you survive but the monster's level is higher and it gets a sudden boost of Haste. The Lightning weapon doesn't cause quicken when hitting enemies unless it's enchanted with the "?" (Chaos) rune.

Under rating threshold (show) @Toast_OfWar: I think you're getting hit with the special effect of the Lightning weapon. The lure says it's special is emitting quickening. I have one put I've yet to see the quickening activate.

Under rating threshold (show) Armor was the first thing I polymorphed. At first I thought it only changed the item's sprite because the item's name doesn't change. You have to check the description to see what it morphs into. I was right about sprites swapping when you're both wearing the "_" invisible armor.

Under rating threshold (show) If anyone's wondering about "Elbereth" here's the fun special effect from a wiki: http://nethack.wikia.com/wiki/Elbereth. No it does not cause the "Your Fury Takes Form" effect. The "Fear" rune or enchantment does that to your enemies. It creates a red nightmare form of themselves that attack until dead or for a short period. The effect "He comes..." however creates a nightmare of you that attacks/chases you and can come from the sleep action randomly or with runes and enchantments from enemies.

Under rating threshold (show) if no one's figured out how to get the chest in overworld, level up and quicken, while floating up, hold right and fall onto the chest. So far I've gotten a +Fez, Harpoon, +Cog, and a Gun Leech.

Under rating threshold (show) enchanting a portal rune to a weapon or armor opens a doorway to a small pocket dungeon with certain enchanted items. eating a portal rune opens a portal to overworld that carries over in case you die so you can go back to that level. feeding your minion a portal rune opens a door to the underworld where you can steal death's scythe.

Under rating threshold (show) I had recently entered the dungeon... again. I had a hotkey set to some hearts, but I no longer had those hearts. I was fighting, and dying. I panicked and pushed my hotkey. Nothing seemed to happen, but then I soon found out that I had broken the menu. It would not open at all. Controls started becoming unreliable. And the worst part, was that doors no longer worked. TLDR; Don't push hotkeys for items you don't have anymore. :)

Under rating threshold (show) Escaping without the Amulet of Yendor gives you a different ending. Also: The Overworld doesn't preserve the Amulet, the Balrog's Face, or the Death's Scythe across reincarnations. It removes those items AND it looks like it also removes all other items on the same stack. So be careful. (Either that or I hit an item limit. But I doubt it. Will double-check next ascension.)

Under rating threshold (show) I'll need to stockpile and double-check rune effects now that I know the overworld trick. Undead on weapons looks like it might heal your minion through kill/"sacrifices". Not what I'd expect....

Under rating threshold (show) Woo! It's true. Items left on the Overworld carry through reincarnation. Runes stay identified. Time to kill the Balrog again and test with the Amulet of Yendor or Death's Scythe.

Under rating threshold (show) Okay, I need to confirmed, please. Does enchanting a weapon with a Heal Rune, cause your target to regen HP? This seems to be the case as far as I can tell. Shouldn't that particular enchantment heal you when you attack with that weapon, instead of healing your target?

Under rating threshold (show) This is an astonishingly well made game. The combat can be fast paced and fiercely tactical, and the developer gives you the choice between two combat types. The atmosphere is perfect, and when combined with the stellar soundtrack is well deserving of the horror tag. Superb presentation.

Under rating threshold (show) The game should save just before you go home. I was told I couldn't take items, so I figured there would be more game play later. So I dumped all my items only to find that the last save was before that, so I wasn't able to take my good stuff to the post game.
