  • Keywords items added; curses removed

Amen. How about aggravate simply means "subtract pval from stealth"? That would make it get worse the better the pval is. Or you could just implement multiple pvals at this point ...

  • Status changed from new to confirmed
  • Type changed from bug to change

From Timo:

"Maybe have smallish aggravation range which is cumulative. Then one item does not cause such a havoc. Maybe also have it work like anti-stealth so that it doesn't always wake up everything. Or maybe aggravate only some monster class (like Orcrist aggravating orcs). Maybe make it kind of "ring of conflict" so that monsters that are aggravated do not care about tactics and charge at you so that if there is something in their way they attack it. That would make it mixed blessing. Draw hounds out of room? No problem, wear an item with aggravation. Want to get rid of Colossus? No matter, just wait that those orcs behind it kill it. Feeling that Greater Titan is too tough? Fight it in place where it blocks a way of many other monsters. You fight it and so do they."

  • Milestone changed from 4.2 to Future

Punting for now because there are currently at least some uses for aggravating items (eg blackguards with bloodlust)
