Tips & Tricks

The bonus Corona gives to enemy accuracy may not be as dangerous as the massive penalty it applies to your stealth. While high magic resistance will render them almost harmless, it's best not to let them live, and sneaky characters should be extremely careful traveling while illuminated.


Ignes were considered for inclusion in 0.14, but were disabled shortly after being introduced and later removed before making it into any stable release.
