So, I started out my Fighter/Illusionist run in a kind of hoardy fashion. Now that I'm towards the end of the game, I've been a little more liberal with using items, especially wands.
And holy crap, making explosions on command is pretty awesome. I've basically exploded my way through the Candlekeep Tunnels and Durlag's Tower. It turns out getting a checkmate is pretty easy when you can toast the enemy king from across the room.
So, yeah. Just thought I'd share how much I love these things.
