It Doesnt take Tarrasque to do that kind of damage. Ariel is perfectly capable of leaving you at -800HP if you botch a swap of randarts. I am all too sure of it. That said... I can't come close to Sky's example. That is spectacular.

I've done the same as Sky, though I wasn't getting ready for the Morgoth fight, I think I was in the DL80s or something; got excited by new gear and completely forgot to check for FrAct after rearranging a bunch of new shiny artifacts.

Thank you all for the advice. Next time i will just TO him and continue with exploration.
Just wanted to kill the Tarrasque so Morgoth doesn't summon him. Also i searched info on him and according to dnd lore he doesn't have any braths or magic attacks, just physical.

I think at this point we can pretty securely say that Angband's Tarrasque is a fundamentally different creature from the D&D monster that inspired it. The Tarrasque was added to D&D in 1983; Angband first came out in 1990, and I'm pretty sure it had the Tarrasque as a day-one unique.

In any event, unique monsters need some kind of bag of tricks to be dangerous in the late game. Horned Reapers are late game melee-only monsters, and they're only really dangerous because they can show up in situations where you can't easily avoid melee with them, e.g. as part of a demon pit, or by being summoned. A unique can in principle always be corraled away from everything else and dealt with on its own; if it has no non-melee threat then you can trivially, safely wear it down from range with any class.

You don't need to kill every dangerous unique. Please read http://angband.oook.cz/forum/showthr...826#post107826

Then go to guns on the Big Bosses. Good luck!
