I didnt write long time somtething. I will just add a little something. In my opinion some items are really weak compared to the afford you need to get them. Eg I always wanted to try Basilic Dagger, which needs 2 very rare drops from dungeon 1 (basilic poison and recipe) and also copper ore, which drops from lvl 30 ogres? So you can get this item onyl very late in game, in whic case it is outpowered by nearly every other dagger you find from creeps>lvl 18. It makes just no sense to have such much afford getting this item and then it truely is just useless.
The low gnolls (lvl 12 and 14 and such) also drop copper ore. As do the level 16 golems.
So it's not that far advanced, really.... and the only dagger that is pre-d3/not specifically stolen that outdoes it is Splendid Rapier...
