It is also a very entertaining death. I'd laugh, if it happened to me. So I'd say, this is WAD. And yeah. For LOW-HP classes I guess ancient mechanisms are something to watch for.

Qzlqzzup is a good choice. Just keep teleport him till he gets to a small room. Then wait for him to summon all remaining uniques carry plenty of TO for monsters you don't want.

Are you using much melee? If so, switch to the highest damage weapon you have. That main gauche is pretty poor. That other shield looks tasty, though I suppose you can't afford the stat hit yet. ...

@sky--
Full detection is a huge deal. If the Phoenix doesn't get you, a drolem will. Or even gravity/plasma hounds. It certainly is important before opening a vault.
