IMPORTANT!: As of 3/09; and really as of TSO release, the FAQ is no longer being maintained by me. I never updated the AAs for TSO, so that whole discussion is slightly antique. Use at your own risk. -Whysprr As those famous Dirges of Liverpool said: 'Whysprr Words of Wisdom' Organization The FAQ is divided into seven parts in addition to this introduction, one message each. So you can find what you're looking for, here's a list. Introduction General Dirgeliness Stats and Equipment Tactics and Adventuring Spells Achievements Miscellanity and Links (includes God choices) Shameless Self-Promotion Introduction Well, I don't think I'm ever going to be able to edit the old one without making a mess of it, so here's a brand-spankin' new copy which I'll hopefully be able to keep up with. What happened was I spent hours rewriting, editing, then posting FAQ 2.0 broken into easily-editable chunks, then a couple weeks later they restarted the boards, I couldn't edit any of it, and it's taken me this long to get over the depression to do all the weary work over again. Plus these boards are still as buggy as a long-dead hedgehog, and it'll be some sort of miracle if this ever looks decent again. I started this FAQ almost 2 years ago because I got tired of reading the same questions over an' over an' over. It hasn't helped, but it does allow us to be snooty and point people to the FAQ when they ask 'em. I wrote the original version of this when I was a 57th level dirge, updated it along the way, and finally hit 70, then more recently 80, with a slightly squashy thud. But this is a big game, and I haven't done it all, far from it. I've shamefully stolen from other posts on these boards. In general, you should assume that errors are mine, and that accurate information comes from someone else. If you spot an inaccuracy, please point it out to me either in this thread or via PM. Changes from the previous edition: Modified discussion of AAs, to include now not-so-recent changes. Discussion of AA lines while leveling, and while raiding. Updated listing and discussion of God choices. Updated discussion of spells to include T8 choices and spell changes, removing self-buff from concentration-slot discussion, and adding some T8 spell names. Numerous small edits and updates about all sorts of issues to reflect current thinking. Updated links. Senior dirges, as always, please contribute comments and further questions that belong here.
