Forum:Magicbane automatic first gift for wizard?

From NetHackWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Finally, my current Neutral Male Wizard got Magicbane after praying at the (converted) shrine in Minetown.

But before that I was granted a spellbook of Dig and a spellbook of Detect Unseen.

Is this specific to the Nethack.alt server, or should the documentation be updated ?

Specifically, in the Magicbane page:

Wizards receive Magicbane as their first gift from their god after sacrificing at an altar.

Did you get the spellbooks from prayer and the weapon from sacrifice? --Tjr (talk) 05:20, 13 April 2013 (UTC)

Ah, it makes sense now, I never really made the difference between praying and sacrificing, with respect to gifts... Bose (talk) 22:13, 13 April 2013 (UTC)
