Seeing as I had around 10 on my main and I have not been out looting, that's what I was able to pick up at the vendor, they aren't a good sale item so I'm sure they're being stockpiled (low weight) to form pages and pages of insta-win.

ICly, my character will view the use of this item as reckless, pagan, and something that needs to be dealt with immediately. (Considering one use of the thing could kill every NPC layperson at mass.)

Good! Then we can report that Ezrites are murdering folks as it was told all along!:)

Personally of the opinion that no Ezrite should use this item since it is based on Druidic (pagan) roleplay.  And I can stock pile them and use them to wax my boots, so the boots shine when they stomp on somebody for using these.

Probably, however in Barovia, you do not have that kind of power, and killing someone for the use of the candle could and should be considered as an act of murder.
Also there are a number of paganist chars i think.
In portalucine you can most likely execute someone for useing it though. OFC it is just imho.

Now I said stomp, I didn't say anything about killing anybody...  :twisted:  Though if the power of these items becomes more well known IC, Barovians might beg for the users of such to be lynched!  Well, that's my take on it anyway.  And I guess just a general promise of treating this very seriously in the context of religious roleplay.

If it becomes a concern, if you survive the initial blast of instant win, you might be able to kill the offender and icly remove every last item they have. Although if you're fighting a stockpiler, you'll probably wind up a pile of ash.
Which really enhances the plotline of an entire populace of stockpiling nukes. We could play cold war in the middle ages.

Actually...we are allready stockpileing. I managed to find 4 in a single run.

Now a few moments ago, i could have probably decimated the guarda faction with the use of one or two such candles. But since i am one openly talking against the item, would have been quite a hypocrite to do so.

They should be much rarer after the last update, only appearing in high-level areas.

I don't understand how they spawn with no charges, they have charges when I see them in the toolset.

The other two candles have a more appropriate gp value now, so now they're appropriately rare.

Considering how powerful the items in question are, that isn't a bad thing.

I've figured out the issue. It will be fixed in the next update.
