Forum:Cursed Dart

Jump to navigation Jump to search

Hi I'm a little bit miffed by my last death. I was throwing a shopkeepers darts at an eye. It turns out the darts were cursed. No biggy.

Except that the dart slipped from my hand backwards. Apparently the game counted this as a "throw" enraging the shop keeper.

I've looked on the wiki and it seems there is little documentation about this, as it would have been nice to know before hand. I was wondering if someone who understands the game mechanics much better then I do could look in to this.

A cursed projectile may slip if you try to throw it. Did the dart either hit the shopkeeper or exit the store? Not sure what happens if you throw something out of the store, whether it stays on your bill as an unpaid and used item or angers the shopkeeper. If you hit the shopkeeper, that will indeed anger him.--Ray Chason (talk) 02:07, 10 December 2012 (UTC)
If you throw it out of the shop, you only have to pay it. No big deal if you can afford to.--Tjr (talk) 07:57, 10 December 2012 (UTC)
