revised In Dungeon Crawl, should I move enchanted items to a cleared level so that monsters can't get them?
confirmed through play that you cannot sacrifice items as a Nemelex worshipper

comment What is the best way to identify consumables?
Note that depending on your god, trying an unidentified wand on a creature may trigger its wrath ... you usually get a pass for one "accidental" usage, but beyond that, it's safer to use the wand with no target (against a wall or in open space - just not where it might bounce (lightning) or explode (fireball) and hit you!) just in case. I believe there is also at least one god who frowns on use of certain items, period ... in that case, you should probably wait and identify the wand with a scroll.

comment How do I gain piety with Okawaru?
Monster difficulty affects piety since 0.11, per the changelog: "Okawaru gives almost no heed to kills and sacrifices of easy monsters, rewards toughest fights more."

comment What is the most productive combination of powers to use in Quickplay+ mode?
Sorry for the delay. I was wondering what other answers we would get, although I could have moved the accepted check to a better one if it showed up (obvs none did).

comment What should I do if I want to use magic with armor on?
Yes, strength is a requirement; there's no point in wearing armour if you take both a(n extra) spellcasting hit and an armour hit. Orcs also avoid a hit when wearing orcish leather. Wielding a weapon doesn't affect your chance to cast.

true. Cursing is a better example on its own. There are other ways to protect useful stuff that don't involve duplicates.
