My logfile says that I've ascended five flame mages but
obviously I haven't thought about trying it at these times.
That source code comment clears the (artifact-)part of the

'magic candle' case WRT its persistency.

So, whether tallow, wax, or magic; all candle types will
be rapidly consumed? What a pity. But that simplifies the
implementation I assume.
Thanks for clearing that question!
