Which ones do you carry and what does greater restoration do that restoration doesn't?

Greater restores all stat damage in a single cast, and neg levels? I believe.

I carry greater and lesser..

I carry Greater as a Spell and a Wand for Lesser. Almost any time someone loses one level they tend to lose MORE than one which makes Greater the more logical choice to focus. For simple stat Damage the Wand can handle it.

Lesser restores do stat damage and fatigue like effects.
Restore gets all stat damage and cures one negative level.
Greater Restore - i believe- cures it all.

I carry a Wand of Lessor... Although I cant remeber the last Time I used it.... and a Stack of Greater Restoration scrolls. None of em are carried as spell Point sinks.

I carry them all, they ask, they shall recieve. BUT THEY GOTTA TELL ME FIRST. People dying, "I didn't know it was that bad" or my favourite. usually on a caster, "Uhm, guys, I can't move. Could someone fix my STR damage?" Talk about giving yourself flesh to stone!

Something other than STR loss stopped them from moving, cause just like the mobs can move at 0 STR, characters can as well. They just cannot DO anything. They cannot cast spells, they cannot fight, they cannot loot (which really gets them to speak up), and you cannot climb or jump.

But what about characters with so little strength and so much junk they get completely overburdened?

Greater Restoration and Mass Restoration, scrolls only (spells are for me, scrolls are for you!). Screw lesser and single-target restoration.

Mass Restoration is fabulous when one of the six barbarians in a PUG calls out "strength damage!" and expects you to know which one he is.

Since one scroll of greater or mass will take care of whatever you need, scroll timers aren't an issue.

Honestly I wish they all came in pots. I hate asking for neg level help, it just seems like it's something I should be able to do. I do carry stacks of lesser pots though so I will never ask for that.

i have Greater on Scrolls as well but the other two loaded.... not sure why since i never use them
it's a long time to burn through a stack of Greater Scrolls so drop a bit if money and you're good to go for a while, pick up a lesser wand too and you're gravy

just because i don't know what else to take that level, and just in case i run out of pots i suppose.

THAT is one of my biggest annoyances w/ players who've become too reliant on voice chat.

By the time you look to see whose name flashed green, it isn't green anymore, because by the time you hear the word "restore" (which is always the last word in the sentence they speak), their name isn't outlined in green anymore.

I'll wait until they ask again (without stating their own name again, of course), or ask why they're not getting their restoration, and then I explain that they're not getting one until state their need properly with a name, i.e.- "JoeBob needs a restore, please!" or they type their request in group chat, because since there is 5 other "I"s in the party, it's hard to tell who needs something if all they ever say is "*I* need a _____."

WHEN YOU'RE VOICE CHAT-DEPENDENT, AND YOU NEED SOMETHING, STATE YOUR DAMN NAME AS PART OF YOUR REQUEST ALREADY!

My cleric carries Restore and Greater I think. I have a wand of lesser.

I may start to carry scrolls for this......I'll have to look at the spell list and see if there is something better.

For my other chars this is the most annoying spell.....not the spell really, but having to ask for it.

Neg lvls are the one thing most of my chars cannot cure themselves.
The one thing I need a cleric for.
And the one thing not readily apparent that I need healig for.

I hate asking for help.....it's like begging. It's degrading.
But when it comes to neg lvls, I have no choice.

I usually try to phrase it like "wow! he hit me for 4 neg lvls!".......and let the cleric decide if he's going to help me or not. (most do).
