I don't think this should be in the User Interface category... --Paxed 16:27, 29 November 2006 (UTC)

Is there any reason why to rest instead of sitting or searching?

Well, it is one key rather than multiple keys, although it is usually desirable to search in case an invisible monster comes near you. The reason it is included, usually is to allow people to specifically do nothing - for example resting up in a shop with ] - a mimic - that may be able to kill you. Ideally, with low values of Strength, you should spend your time repeatedly opening and closing doors or other suitable exercise-capable actions, although that usually bores the pants off me. Out of interest, why is there the suggestion of sitting? That, too, does nothing... or am I missing something? -- Kalon 23:09, 15 April 2008 (UTC)
