Offensive use, defensive item?

This is granted as a defensive item, but they use it offensively (as part of FIQHack's AI improvements?)? -Actual-nh (talk) 14:37, 11 April 2021 (UTC)

The item use AI in FIQHack was rewritten from scratch, with the exception of the item generation code (although the item generation was slightly changed). Wands of summoning are generated as both part of offensive and defensive items. However, the way they use summoning is more in line with what the vanilla AI would regard as "offensive", because they use it as a response to nearby monsters hostile to them. It's a bit more involved than that, but that is the gist of it. --FIQ (talk) 15:23, 11 April 2021 (UTC)

Thank you for the explanation. I hope my page modifications make it a bit clearer to anyone else wondering about this. -Actual-nh (talk) 17:59, 11 April 2021 (UTC)
Umbire: Please explain removal of the clarification; I currently have no reason not to put it back. -Actual-nh (talk) 14:41, 1 May 2021 (UTC)
It's called "I'm going to circle back and elaborate on it when I add a strategy section to this". --Umbire the Phantom (talk) 00:04, 2 May 2021 (UTC)
Circling back and working on it is fine with me; about when do you think you'd be doing that? If it may be a wbile, putting the clarification back in the meantime would, IMO, be useful for anyone else wondering about it. -Actual-nh (talk) 00:46, 2 May 2021 (UTC)
It'll be soon, patience... --Umbire the Phantom (talk) 00:56, 2 May 2021 (UTC)
