Is there some type of spell or item that functions similar to the town portal? I can't seem to find anything resembling this feature. I'll go ahead and add that I'm only level 8 right now, does this feature become available later or am I just overlooking something?
GM_ posted... You buy Scroll of Town Portal from... wait, never mind this version was dumbed down. Press the T button.
There are certainly quite a few aspects of this game that one could call dumbed down. This is not one of them. I think it's more accurate to call it dumb "feature" removed. The scrolls served no purpose other than taking up an inventory slot. I never ran out of portal scrolls. I was never presented with an added challenge because of the scrolls. They were just there, eternally taking up a spot in my inventory.
If you really feel this improvement is "dumbing down" the game then pick a slot in your inventory and declare that you cannot use that slot for anything, ever. There, now it's like the scrolls were never gone to begin with. Problem solved.
