Fun with Ravens I was curious about what point there is to leveling up ravens past 5. Obviously, they last longer. But what else comes from leveling them up? So, I made a new druid, and put only points into Ravens. What I observed: 1) After about 10 levels, I discovered that the blinding happens very quickly, and lasts a long time (or just happens over and over as creatures get hit), but never against elites or uniques. It seemed to happen more often as I sunk more skill points into it. 2) Ravens aren't very useful against fast creatures if you're running away. Not that it's really necessary to run away much in act 1 normal, which is what I've gone through so far, but against anything else, including Andariel, I could just run around in circles and take little or no damage (Andy hit me once with the area poison spell, and me with cleglaw's claw and a ring with 25% poison length reduction ^_^) 3) Ravens will, if there are no visible enemies, often show you where the closest enemy is if there are some just off screen. And sometimes they'll attack them for you. 4) Ravens ignore walls, fenches, boulders, and anything else as long as they can see over them. Often I would run into a room and just hide behind a bunch of barrels once I got to the monastery. 5) And finally, they'll generally attack whatever's closest to you, including abandoning a creature that's badly hurt but still dangerous to attack a fresh one. If no one knows the answer to this, I'll test it out myself later, but: Do abilities like the Might aura and Wolverine affect Raven's damage? Can a Sorceress cast Enchant on them?
