Response to Some ?s re Elitist Rules for Hellfire


#1. Are Oils in or out?

Agree with Gakerd. SNOB has no direct prohibitions on consumable items, so I'd say this is fine. An exceptionally SNOBby SNOB might shun less Blacksmith and Fortitude oils in favor of finding a Permeance (at least in HF:F or vanilla HF SP).

#2. Are Runes useable or no?

Agree with Gakerd. Nova and Immo runes are preferred to the lesser Lit/Fire runes for the same reason a SNOB wouldn't bother casting Fireball from a scroll.

Berserk -- it is magic based?

Yes, Berserk is affected by magic immunity. I'd allow it to a SNOB because it's "unique."

Immolation(would it replace Elemental as the Noblest fire based spell?)

I dunno. Immo and Nova are both extremely powerful. I think the SNOB would lose some of its flavor if it used these exclusively over Ele and CBolt.

Reflect, Search

Search is utility, like TP. Reflect is fairly unique.


Tough call. I consider it semi-utility (for Laz running). Why should a SNOB put himself in danger physically Teleporting through unknown rooms if he can teleport safely to the nearest stairs?

And isn’t Apoc possible on a book in Hellfire? If so, Apoc?

I suppose.

#4. Since in Hellfire there are a number of Unique Amulets that may now drop, are "non-Golden unique" amulets now forbidden?

As much as those HF amulets suck, yes. (And in vanilla HF, there's only Acolyte's Amulet. Ewww.)
