** That said, some spells do become this later on in the game - far after you've already gotten lots of use out of them. Susurrus Fatalis is most notable, as it instantly kills any enemy below level 8, which does wonders and works as a fantastic panic button or encounter wipe until you reach floor 6.

There's also one spell that falls into this category, but only if you're Chaotic. Absolution is a tier 4 spell that cures poison...but Chaotic Priests get Divine Touch in the same tier, and that spell cures all ailments, including poison. Since the spells have the same cost, it's a waste of a spell slot to use Absolution over Divine Touch.

** Additionally, though the final spell tiers are balanced, there's a slight edge to both sides, again making it more up to preference. Priests are better Lawful, due to both Salvation[[note]]revives and fully heals the ''entire party''[[/note]] and Angel of Death[[note]]instantly kill ''everything'' you're fighting[[/note]] being better than what the Chaotic spells have. Chaotic Mages, however, get Extincto Magnus, which is the single strongest spell in the game, doing 30-''165'' damage to ''every'' enemy.

* LuckBasedMission: It's entirely possible to have a Thief declare a lock is too hard to pick, which prevents any further attempts until re-entering the tower. This has a very realistic chance of happening despite the fact that locks can always be picked. There's also treasure chests, though anyone but a Thief trying to remove the traps from one has a near zero chance of working.
** A quest later in the game requires you to win a gambling minigame five times in a row. Even with the gambling skill on your party, the odds of winning are pathetically low.

** Played straight with some of the skills, as they do ''nothing'' in spite of their cost. Some also do have use, but it only amounts to having a chance to affect a puzzle in the bonus floor.

* AntiFrustrationFeatures: Surprisingly, poison doesn't kill anyone so long as they're not in battle.



* CharacterAlignment: [[invoked]]Goes for the 'Lawful vs Chaotic' stripe instead of 'Good vs Evil'. Also, while humans and halflings can choose their alignment, Elves are Neutral by default, and Dwarves are Lawful. [[spoiler:High Elves are Lawful, and Dark Elves are Chaotic.]]

* CharacterAlignment: [[invoked]]Goes for the 'Lawful vs Chaotic' stripe instead of 'Good vs Evil'. This primarily affects which final set of spells your Priests and Magi get, due to each option having exclusive (yet balanced) final spell tiers. Also, while humans and halflings can choose their alignment, Elves are Neutral by default, and Dwarves are Lawful. [[spoiler:High Elves are Lawful, and Dark Elves are Chaotic.]]]] You can also convert characters to different alignments through praying enough at the opposite church, which can result in things like a Chaotic Dwarf, or a Lawful [[spoiler:Dark Elf]].

* EarlyGameHell: Until your Mage is powerful enough to cast multiple spells without losing all their spell casts early on, the game is unforgiving.
