comment How can I improve my last hitting skill?
As a note, Io (Wisp) has a slightly faster attack point, a higher starting range and higher damage. Sniper's missile speed is almost double that of Io, however, so I agree that he's very good for learning to last hit, especially after a few levels as his damage and range go up. Gyrocopter's attack point is slightly slower and has shorter range, but has higher damage and shares the missile speed with Sniper.

comment Why do some of a dwarf's labor preferences occasionally disappear when I add a new one?
@kotekzot Also, if the first item in the hand is a ranged weapon, you can still fire with it!

@kotekzot Well, you'll still only be able to attack with one at a time, but it gives the advantage of having more attack modes. Not only does this allow you to pick the right type of strike for the moment, but also gives you more attacks which could each receive a combat opportunity for an aimed strike. With multigrasp weapons you have to shuffle things about so that you keep junk in your "empty" hand as you stack weapons and shields in your main hand, dropping it afterwards. It also leaves you at greater risk should you lose your wielding arm.

Actually, you can equip as many weapons as you can carry in adventure mode, as long as you have a backpack. It's entirely possible to hold 12 halberds and 6 shields in one hand and still benefit from multigrasp.

comment How to track down a Night Creature in a city?
@SevenSidedDie Well, the same is true for any game. For example, every question with the "tf2-pyro" tag also has "team-fortress-2", and that doesn't make it useless. Every question about a game has the tag for that specific game, except apparently 2 questions about a certain part of DF. Someone looking at tags and seeing "Dwarf Fortress" won't think "oh, I should go find the separate tag for half of that game as well", nor should users be expected to use wildcard searches to subscribe to one game. Why not a fortress tag as well? Adventure tag is a good thing, but not on its own.

comment How to track down a Night Creature in a city?
@SevenSidedDie Was going for consistency - all but 2 questions with the dwarf-fortress-adventure tag are also tagged with dwarf-fortress, and it seems like people following the dwarf-fortress tag would want the adventure results. I'd think it should be both, unless dwarf-fortress-adventure could be made to imply the dwarf-fortress tag.

comment How can you determine a Spore save game's difficulty level?
On the galaxy load screen, are the planets colour-coded by difficulty? I know you can tell by spaceship health spore.wikia.com/wiki/Health but I'm not sure other than that. Maybe in the creature history screen?

comment Why can't I craft a sawmill?
If you ask the guide about crafting, stick the wood in and scroll to the workbench, then move the mouse away, does it say you require just a workbench, or a workbench and anvil? If both, then you need to be near enough to both of the stations at once.

comment What Dota 2 heroes are like LoL's Master Yi or Teemo?
From your summary (I know nothing about Teemo), sounds like Venomancer is a direct hit. Poison? Got that, both damage and slow from an active and added passively to attacks, as well as pure damaging poison with the ultimate. Plague wards are kind of mines, useful for scouting certain areas, harrassing when placed in small numbers, and setting up lots of them to lay a trap. And, of course, you can shadow blade for invis.
