comment Give away duplicate steam game
Yeah, I don't fully understand why they do it that way, but the packs tend to be quite cheap and I guess if everyone got extra copies then everyone would be trading them around and still often getting the games they actually wanted cheaper.

comment How to use Dota 2 courier?
@skiabox Are you familiar with buying items and using the shop at all? I would recommend doing the tutorial (Play>Quests in-game), which introduces the shop amongst other things.

comment How to use Dota 2 courier?
@BlueTrin XD Yeah, I spent a good while writing mine up before I knew anyone else was answering. It's a shame we can't see when someone else is actively writing until they actually submit - it could prevent a lot of overlap and save people time they could use improving each other's answers rather than writing the same thing!

comment What's the easiest way to make obsidian?
Ah, I had misread and hadn't realised you leave the water down as you dig. A good method :)

comment What's the easiest way to make obsidian?
Your answer very briefly mentions where obsidian comes from, but doesn't go into much useful detail about safely and effectively farming obsidian - I feel a slightly more thorough explanation of the things you mention would be useful. I like the note about creating a nether portal without a diamond pick, though.

comment What's the easiest way to make obsidian?
If water meets a lava flow, it will create a cobblestone block. Obsidian will only form if water meets a lava "source" block, though if you find a lava pool it will be all or mostly source blocks.

Also, if it's not a tiny little pool of lava, I'd recommend using the bucket to move the lava away from its pool before cooling it. This prevents lava flows burning the dropped obsidian blocks, and stops lava flow getting out of control in general.

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.
