    are daggers of cuivienen supposed to glow on the ground when you drop them? i could have sworn they did at one point. also it is possible to find daggers of accompaniment [+2] but you cannot craft them.

      Sil slay weapons glow whenever a vulnerable race nearby--even if the weapon is on the ground.

        it's not a slay weapon. it's a light source.

          This change, https://github.com/sil-quirk/sil-q/c...abe664a1eaf41e , in Sil-Q between the 1.4.2 and 1.5 releases took out most glowing objects on the floor (like those such as daggers of Cuivienen with the LIGHT flag or those which have a slay and there's an appropriate monster nearby).

              also lesser jewels are useless.

                what's the difficulty for keeping your strength from an herb of weakness?

                  on a whim, i just tried using a staff of id on chest and identified the trap.
                  didn't know that was a thing. neat!

                    idea: maybe dwarf masks should get the same treatment as quarter staves and robes re: smithing. currently, a [-2, 1d2] dwarf mask requires 5 smithing, but a regular [-1, 1d2] helm with r/fire requires 6 smithing. this change would also makes thematic sense.

                      i don't know why, but i always assumed blocking didn't work unless you passed the turn.
                      you just have to not "move." you can do literally anything else.
                      i thought this ability sucked; but it rules!

                        The light and song bonus are very useful on any character not relying on a melee weapon to kill things; dual-wielding <+3> cuivienen daggers is a great endgame option for many builds.

                        ​This used to be the case; it got buffed some time between 1.3 and 1.5.
                        It's really good on any combat build that uses a shield and doesn't take flanking, which for me is mostly point blank archers.

                            how does critical resistance work on monsters now? does it still use the old formula from the will tree?

                            also how is weapon weight derived for enemy attack rolls?

                              It does not act like a player's Critical Resistance ability. It halves the number of dice added by a critical (so one additional die becomes no additional dice; two or three additional dice become one additional die, ...). That seems to be the same as it was in Sil.

                              It is two pounds per die of damage (so the bite of a wolf, 2d3, is four pounds; an Orc warrior, 3d6, is six pounds). That seems to be the same as it was in Sil.
