    I think the fact that I went with book starsign and put extra points into learning stat at start of the game should permit semi-casting. A fighter will never be a caster? I once had a mist elf...

    I did have 100 concentration ( thanks to a wish). How many castings can a wizard expect? 2 is too low imo, might do an rfe.

    But do those factors go into the # of castings? I was able to get plenty of atlas castings so it seems like acid ball is singled out. Wonder if it was a stealth nerf applied some versions ago...

    calculation for melee stat drain

    Anyone know what builds up resistance to it? I remember many versions ago a playthrough where the emperor lich didn't get off any stat drains and I could melee it to death. I'm sure my high stats...

    old barbarian requirements

    He called me chicken at level 13, but I think I've gotten it at that and even at level 12 in the past. Is it experience based? Wiki doesn't mention the requirement btw, probably needs adding.
