How to get experimental results

I seem to remember some bonuses for broom slots were different but I lost the harddrive with the data.

So I'm starting a table here to gather a large amount of bonuses and check broom slot number for them. That is you have x bonus (including Stat effects) and it gives y slots so we can verify the bonuses required for each slot to appear is exact.

Eating thousand year old eggs with iron gauntlets and adding/removing helm & cap gives a pretty good sampling. Int tea, wis shrine, mocking one self can also vary it.

Getting your wisdom (or possibly any other stat as well) down to 0 will make you fall asleep. --Gunde 10:33, 3 July 2010 (UTC)

Unconsciousness lasted 14 minutes for me, until the hundred year old egg effect ended. --Frazyl 09:10, 6 January 2011 (UTC)


The following to be updated for the greatest bonus changing recipes for adventuring.direction (DDIIW) by stat effects.

  • Raise
Int tea +1 int, OC shrine +2 wis, Ephebian horse +2 int, dex gloves +2 dex.
Bless conflicts with stat items but gives all +1.
  • Drop
Hundred year old egg varies from -1 to -8 dex, mocking yourself -2 wis several times until you have only 1 or 2 wis, expired int tea -1 int, expired gp tea -1 int.
Expiring gp tea might be able to lower further but it seems not to go below -2 int either because of timing or on purpose.
Wearing stat items together should be able to lower it more: str gauntlets then flat cap (prayer beads would be best but cannot be charged as a witch)
You can get multiple -1 int with Flying Cockroaches but this might be dangerous and they can fail to happen often enough.

Table of experimental results

The way the number of broom slots is calculated was changed on Sep 13 2010, as noted here . Therefore, a new table is needed.
