Are the wand and dagger rituals working correctly?
I haven't gotten very far in my current game, but I seem to be having a lot of trouble succeeding with the dagger and wand rituals. From my hazy recollection of way back when, I don't recall ever making more than two attempts on the wand ritual. Not so here. Now I remember thinking back in the day that there was not point to the enchantments if they were so easy, but I wonder if this is what is intended.

I'm not putting this in the bug thread because I don't know if this is broken or WAD.

Are you doing the ritual in a Suite? The room quality should have effect on the wand ritual success.

But then it sounds good and alright if they are hard. After all their benefits are quite noticeable. i.e No more need for light source (magical or mundane)

It is not broken, just quite hard. You need Arcane Lore for the check, and it is handicaped by 6 for the first Dagger ritual and by 9 for the second staff ritual. Fourth rituals are each handicaped by 15, so you either need a good skill level in Arcane Lore, or a good portion of luck to succeed.

We decided to make them harder in order to increase their value, so you don't "just walk into the next hostel with your Level 1 Wizard and come out with a Staff enchantment 4 3 days later", but you actually need to work (e.g.: levelup) for it to succeed.

And I like that very much. Wand enchantments are powerfull and should be something not aquired easily.

it takes some time and effort.. but it is working properly. My druid has obsidian dagger on level 4 and both my mages have wand on level 4.

Seems like a good change actually and not too much. Even I with my terrible luck at dice and without even knowing the specifics eventually got my magic staff to level 4 so it must be well manageable :)
