I find the Emperor Q is one of the easiest uniques to kill if you don't just run up to him. You can target a space next to him to kill him with AoEs from out of sight, or I have noticed sometimes if I do run up to melee him, he never summons anything but just takes 5-10 turns of bashing before dying. Bug?

I've wielded my Sonic Screwdriver and taunted him in wizmode. Eventually, he stops summoning. In a normal game, I don't think I'd be likely to survive that long, but I've long suspected there's some sort of summoning bug.

AoEs?

Sorry, can't work that one out.

TLE fail (by me)

When I've encountered him in this game it's never been alone - in fact I think he's been summoned by another unique, along with the great Lich wizard, various greater balrogs and a few greater Wyrms to boot. Maybe I've been unlucky.

Thanks, haven't really got any, am a rogue so aside from the one from magic for beginners - I have mass confusion spell and the sound one - but I don't bother with that spellbook as I've never used it - maybe I should.

Personalyl I also rarely use wands as they're of limited effect and just help the opposition get better half the time. Plus I find there's more important stuff to carry personally. Suppose I could have had a stack of 50 rods of lightning bolts by now mind.

I'm collecting a few for the final battles though - powerful ones - drain life and annihalation (though I'm yet to be convinced the latter are all that good)

You can also use a launcher or single target spell in a hockey stick position, if you can manage to set it up.

In TomeNET, he can blink. And spells don't need player LOS to trigger, just awareness. Makes him a lot harder...

My current problem is a greater balrog in a large vault in DL97

Not a problem to kill just at some time during the fight the game crashes - every time - yet another reason to use teleport other...

If you post a savefile, that would be helpful (you can just zip it and attach it to a forum post).

Gah! Got killed by the Tarrasque in that vault. Risked a hit while at 450 HP - breathed fire - dead.

Can't really complain - far and away my best game ever.

But annoying. Back to lvl1
