Ungoliant the Medusa does't seem worth killing. Confuses, heals, lots of damage...

A staff of teleport has a nonzero failure rate so isn't fully reliable when you are facing imminent death. A scroll will always take you somewhere else if you are not blind or confused.

Are we talking about Medusa or Ungoliant? Medusa is a mid-level unique, who's somewhat annoying to fight, but not too bad once you get strong enough. Ungoliant, on the other hand, is one of the strongest uniques in the whole game. IIRC, she actually has more hp than Morgoth himself. Not worth fighting unless you've decided that simply winning isn't enough of a challenge, and you want to kill all the uniques.

Ungoliqnt has 13000 hp. Sauron has 10000, while Morgoth bas 20000. And she does big poison and darkness damage. I rarely bother to fight her.

Definitely had the name Ungoliant, I thought I saw Medusa also. Wasn't sure if it was part of her name or another attacker.

One weird thing, she did big darkness breath damage AFTER I teleported her.

The danger feeling of the level with her is the most dangerous, the first time I remember seeing the top one.

'Medusa, the Gorgon' is attacking with plasma bolts that are VERY high damage, and she is hard to kill.

I'm doing up to 392/round at level 30 which seems very high and after a lot of hits, she's only down 30% while I'm at 24/312 (after CCW's).

OK, yes, it was Medusa, the Gorgon and Ungoliant (and Wormtongue) on the same level...

I used my only *healing* to kill Medusa to see what she'd drop, looks like crap, a non-unique weapon with something unidentified, likely a slay.

Close behind her is Ungoliant - my first hit was 'great' with this weapon that does 392 and it didn't even take her down by one star. Time to leave.
