Can you name this invisible beast?!

Invisible - but not detectible to telepathy

You shock something. <3x>
You shock something. It was a great hit!

You shock something. <5x>
You have killed it.

You double moved it as you have 6 hits a round.
Its armor rating clearly isn't that great, because you didn't miss.

But it has a fair number of HP, because you do 112 points per blow against creatures not resistant to lightning

My speed is +18 if that makes a difference.

Possibly a midlevel Q?
Edit: If you enabled verbose messages, it would "squlch" and "quiver in pain", and you'd know for sure. The other possibility is will'o'wisp, but you are unlikely to just run into one like that.

Yes Q is the prime suspect. Will o wisp is electricity resistant (or should be).

Trapper was my first thought, too. But that beast survived 11 hits for ~112 damage, so it must have twice the hit ponts.

99,9% certain lurker. You need to have more dmg/turn to two-shot a midgame Q or a trapper.

I doubt Lurker, too few hp. My monster viewer is a hack so cant say for 100% but I'd say it is a Q.
Using this: https://thraalbee.azurewebsites.net/monview/
And this in the filter field:
Code:
SQL# flags_effective LIKE "%EMPTY_MIND%" AND flags_effective LIKE "%INVISIBLE%"  and hit_points > 1000 and hit_points < 2000
results in three Q's, all native to dl 71.

Right now only the "Plot" option works, the "Tabulate" is broken (EDIT: fixed)

More evidence: lurkers, and more so trappers, have decent AC, whereas Qs have almost none. So 12 blows in a row connecting favors a Q.

Aren't Q's detectable by infravision?
