I don't miss that fear anymore. It still sucks dying, but knowing that I won't be completely f'ed if I make a major mistake or go into an area that is high risk and die is not a bad thing. I feel like I can explore different parts of the game more freely now. Yesterday I needed to go into the Ocean of Tears to get some spells for my mage. It was nice knowing that if I died while trying to sneak past the goblins with invis, I wouldn't be stuck having to get my corpse out of there.
