I'm having trouble deciding weather or not to take rope, how does it function?

Depends on the weather.

Always take rope.

I'm serious, I've been sitting here with the game paused because I don't know how it functions

It'll interact with the environment so going down a crevasse or getting across one.

It's not rocket surgery.

Stand in front of hole, use rope to climb down safely.

Very good tool for those hole diving adventurers out there, especially since you can receive injuries now from fall damage.

No, they have different functions. Just keep the rope in your backpack and the wand in your hand. When you need to use the rope, open your backpack and right-click it.

Rule of thumb from my pen and paper D&D days: always carry 50' of rope.

Yes, it's called the Cache and it's in the east by the castle walls.
A gently fried snail slice is absolutely delicious with a pat of butter...
