In the Mac version of 3.2.1, I've seen pools and moats represented by a lowercase alpha, just to let you know. - Kahran042

As described in IBMgraphics: the symbol for a moat or pool is subject to the user's character set. This article suggests the 'wavy equals sign' is intended instead of the symbol displayed elsewhere. Hence this article could grow an intro and section similar to fountain.--PeterGFin (talk) 19:18, 11 August 2012 (UTC)

Retrieving Items

Don't sea monsters lack hands to pick up items with? I'd suggest a water troll for retrieving sunk items.--PeterGFin 14:31, January 17, 2010 (UTC)

If I boil a moat using a wand, will this damage or destroy combustible items I have dropped in that square? --PeterGFin 08:00, June 16, 2010 (UTC)

I guess this is one of the differences between pool, which can be evaporated, and moat, which cannot. Don't bother trying in the Wizard's Tower. Tjr 13:58, June 16, 2010 (UTC)
