It now says "See Monster Health" in IE. Does that mean it works in IE, or not? - Cameron 15:09, 1 January 2008 (GMT)

I believe the only reason the button didn't appear in IE was a missing '>' in the HTML, which was added recently. The entire "not visible in IE" thing was presumably unintentional. Random4518 17:49, 1 January 2008 (GMT)

Oh, really? Huh. I will test it! It does work in IE! Yay! - Cameron 03:52, 2 January 2008 (GMT)

Bound Spirits

4-7 Bound Spirits, which can be used to enchant a weapon. For example, you can make a "Lance (undecided)" which becomes a "Lance (Roc Bane)" when you hit a Roc. The Lance will then do double damage to Rocs.

Baned weapons wear out less frequently than regular weapons. Hitting a monster other than the one your weapon is baned to will break the weapon immediately.

More max AP

Well I guess someone had to jump first. I got +28 Naius 17:41, 26 December 2006 (GMT) 2007 Picked More Max AP, got +32 AP or so. S. Mackie 22:17, 25 December 2007 (GMT). +23 AP --Deva 01:55, 26 December 2007 (GMT)

More max HP

Amount varies. Known range is from +21 to +23.

I got +25 both times when I used up my two presents yesterday (I had one left over from last year I was being indecisive about).--Hamelin 15:46, 26 December 2007 (GMT)

See Invisibles

Gives you the intrinsic ability to see invisible monsters as well as a pair of free shades.

If you have this ability, then you gain the option to lose it if it's been annoying you. See Invis is one of the most double-edged gifts; sure, you can see invisible things, but they also get in the way, and invisible things are always hostile to begin with.

See Monster Health

Gives you the ability to see monster health, as per the water character ability. Unsurprisingly.

I don't have this option in my present list. Perhaps some of these gifts are kudos-based? - Heyus2 23:33, 25 December 2006 (GMT)
Apparently, the presence or otherwise of this option depends on which browser you're using. Ravensdance 18:10, 26 December 2006 (GMT)


Gives you a Christmas hat. This gives 20 kudos instantly. Can be stolen, even on Christmas day.


Gives you a Flake Shaker and Goldfish Egg.

You can currently have more than one goldfish at a time. Choosing pet again also gives you a second flake shaker.
