It's like ten thousand spoons when all you need is a knife / It's like starting in wizard mode, and then finding a bag of holding 3 steps to the right.

it would be (, not ), wouldn't it?

Also, been done IIRC

I feel for you. I've always often been in wizmode, and the best stuff usually happens there.

Mine may have been more ridiculous:

The things I do for Dudley's dungeon.

I have 6 more scheduled comics lined up, by the way.

You want bitterly ironic?

In one game, I stepped off the starting stairway to fight a pair of rabid rats.
Unfortunately, I had forgotten to turn off auto-pickup, so I picked up a chest, got overburdened, and promptly died at the hands of the rats.

Contents of chest? An amulet of life-saving.

@Mijae: The only ironic thing about that song is that the lyrics aren't mentioning anything ironic.

I'm pretty sure wizard mode gives you cooler stuff just to annoy you.

@Sorcerer: So that's why all my wizard mode wizards start with rings of slow digestion...

Speaking of, the other day I started a wizmode game, wished for a bag of holding because I needed to test something with a bag of holding, opened it up, and it contained one (0:3) wand of wishing. Pfff...
