Ok, so I got my first Wizard quest (the farthest I've ever gotten) and I have 50K in gold. Is there actually a use for it later on in the adventure? I've bought and oracle'd all I can.... 22:12, 10 September 2013 (UTC)

I would suggest buying all the intrinsic protection you can from a priest, perhaps the one in Minetown. -- Guest41 (talk) 22:16, 10 September 2013 (UTC)
There are two main purposes for large amounts of excess gold. Intrinsic protection is the main one, as User:Guest41 suggests. Alternatively, you can also buy temporary clairvoyance with it, which is useful in the very late game; I'll normally save some gold for that. Finally, some players like to keep it to increase their score, but it's one of the least efficient ways to increase score (and thus is mostly only useful for showing off how much wealth you accumulated).
