Can Loricatus only harden aligned metal?

Popo, CVS also keeps track on praying, but for some reason it is unabel to keep a track on Valp and Mort (maybe due o their 50h cooldown time).
Yeah, but I like Ivan 3D better for not having the screwed up Valdemar spawn rate, and the darker outlines on characters/objects.

^Some other handy effects of some of the Gods you mentioned that I found through trying them out:

Sophos and Silva: Give good artificial limbs sometimes.
Cruentes: (Rarely) enchants your weapon +1.
Scabies: Sometimes drops 5 cans of school food at your feet.

Also, Gods will sometimes gift you aligned stuff.

Seges: Ring of Poison Resistance
Mellis: Belt of Carrying, valuable stones
Loricatus: Random enchanted metal equipment

Note that I play Ivan 3D, which I think is based on the CVS, so I don't know if these apply to 0.50. I play Ivan 3D because it keeps track of when you prayed, actually. I find God relations are pretty easy to manage when you don't need to constantly write down when you prayed.

Which Gods do you guys like? I use to swear by praying Mellis to Dulcis, but today I had a few decent runs with the chaotic Gods, and I was surprised by them helping more than I thought they would. Are the lawful Gods worth it compared to the neutral or chaotic ones? Also, if I pray to Mortifer or Valpurus, what's the further Gods from their alignment that I can safely pray to?

4) Depends on what I need. If I still haven't found Mjolak then I'll wish for him.

6) Dual adamantine Mjolak +15

Lots of Mojo love here. Why Mojo over Neerc Se'ulb, out of curiosity?

Welcome on the forums!

Only one tip I can give you that's not on the forums already: Keep trying. You might eventually get there. Or you might end up like me and keep trying for years without ever getting any closer
It took me years to beat my first roguelike. Now I have a handful of wins under my belt at various games of the genre. Patience is the key.

This has helped me immeasurably, thanks!

Are flaming swords worth using over another weapon with slightly higher stats/accuracy? What about whips compared to a weapon with slightly superior stats?

-There are a lot of things that are good to clone/mirror. What takes precedence when you have many items that are good for cloning/mirroring?

-Changing materials. Between equipment and limbs, what comes first?

-Speaking of limbs, should I focus on upgrading my arms or legs first?

-Wishes. I read the FAQ, but what do YOU personally wish for the most often?

-Chest armor. Light or heavy? I find heavy armor really burdens me and slows me down, but light armor gets me killed when something gnarly shows up.

-What's your ideal weapon set? (Aside from the Justifier.)

Hmm, good to know. The main problem is that although Silva tends to give me good limbs, sometimes I get crappy ones, or even get a good limb changed into a crappy one on really rare occasions. Also, some gods seem to never give me limbs made of certain materials that they're affiliated with.

One thing I'm wondering, how do you check what kind of limbs you currently have? Sometimes I forget, like if I save the game and come back to it.

Thanks, this information helps me a lot. What about an extreme case, though, like if I had, say, 4 amethyst limbs?
Posted by Popo, Nov 12, 2010 at 3:13 pm
I'm wondering what the best strategy for getting and using artificial limbs is. Are any Gods beside Silva worth praying to for limbs? How do I get rid of unwanted limbs, especially if they're really sturdy? Is it worth it to pray for limbs, or should I just stick to SoCM?

Unrelated question, but when you zap something with a wand of mirroring, the pile on top is the mirrored stack, right?
