The blood disappears if you use a scroll of repair when it has been badly rusted.

Uh, taraN. That's not a knight win if you have the justifier.
Ah yes my bad. Who would want a knight win anyways >.<

I need to make LIVAN more balanced, but I'm busy and less inclined to release another version.

I need to make it so:

1. Make levels spawn less items. More levels mean too many items.
2. Make the stronger items even harder to get.
3. Dragon Cuirass's material can't be changed at all.

I think the problem is not that Dragon Cuirass material can be changed, as its only +5 armor and once you hit valpurium doesn't make much of a difference, but rather it's the fact that wishing for a dragon cuirass guarantees you 18 AV which is basically enough to beat the game until Elpuri. That's why genie lamps and scrolls of wishing/drinking from fountains sometimes makes the game very easy. One option would be of course to make the dragon cuirass so that it can't be wished for or that the material which it appears as is likely to be low quality item, just like for any other armour/piece of weapon. This way you could get those bronze dragon cuirasses etc. which would also work well with fantasy lore :~)

Also, what the hell is Beldriver? And why can't you get Gleipnir or Loricatus hammer anymore? You could at least fix those bugs Oh yeah, and the most imbalanced feature of LIVAN is actually the extra plant levels below Khazad Arad as the opponents are ridiculously easy and there seem to be more scrolls and goodies than usual. Gah, there's so many things I could list here, but overall I think LIVAN is 100x better than IVAN.

Yep LIVAN is much easier because of all the new worlds and opportunities to find items. So you beat Izzy too? I'm curious to hear how that went I've never met him before
Well I've died quite a few times to him so I had learned my lesson.... Basically everytime I've got enough HP I get rid of all wands which could kill me if they exploded, as this has been the main reason I've died due to him just masschaining me to death as a result of explosions. As soon as I spotted him -----> quick teleport next to him and bash him away, he tried to hit me with his staff but it didn't do much good before his head got severed off.

Artificial limbs, game was easy. Killed all the baddies except Xinroch who I never found. Forgot the inventory shot, but had everything at least +10 enchanted so armour was over 100, also managed to get 5 AoLS so wouldn't have died anytime soon. Next up is the banana win, or with no artificial limbs!

Oh yeah, and the game played was LIVAN. I honestly think that LIVAN is by far easier than normal IVAN, or at least it's easier to get far once youve got decent gear. Not that the games are actually hard

Expensive copies are worth a lot if you sell them, but are as far as I know useless otherwise.
You can offer them to Mellis which will be appreciated greatly

Depending on whether you play LIVAN, you can clone the Mysterious and Holy Saga of the Pantheon to get 50+ Int and Wis. Does take a shit load of wands with 3 charges and scrolls of charging though.

Yes scaling isn't always a very nice thing, a sure Knight win was robbed of me by a mistress whip champion who proceeded to kill me even with 3x AoLS, END 30 and 100 armor at chest. Was wielding +16 Valpurium Zulfiqar and Petrus Sword, yet didn't even get a shot in at the mistress. Oh yeah and I also had GEF limbs. Sherarax was a piece of cake compared to this super insane whip mistress... Lesson of the day ---> Don't prolong your game as you WILL get killed.

The assassins seem to be bugged, as even with 600 dexterity you miss just as often as with 30 dexterity.

I saw this a few times, never used, what does it do?
Take it to the mysterious stranger in New Attnam while holding it in your inventory and he'll mark the location of Monder on your map, a town with a shop and a dungeon with 4 levels and a neat bossfight at the end. Completing the Monder quest is pointless though, the reward you get from the master assassin is bugged and instead of the Whip of Thievery named Gleipnir you only get a spider silk whip of thievery The dungeon is nice for the loot though.
