Ok, asked this in chat, but was advised to move to the main site.
I have been playing a lawful dwarf Valkyrie as I'd heard this is one of the easier classes to start with. I am still learning the ins and outs, so I figured that this class would allow me to ease into the finer points of the game.
Anyway, I have been noticing some oddities in my dungeon levels (at low levels, say within the first 3-ish floors). I will normally try to explore the level to the fullest, but often I will run into corridors that suddenly dead-end. It strikes me as odd, since normally I would expect these corridors to end with a room. Many times, repeated searching will not often help get me farther.
I know there has to be something there, because generally when I run into this, I have maybe explored (what I think) is only a quarter of the level. For example, I'll hear a shopkeeper, or a naiad splashing, and yet there will be no shops that I can see, or any fountains.
I was told in chat that increasing my Wisdom would help my chances of searching, but
- How can I increase my Wisdom?
- Are there any other methods available to a low-level character?
