On the way, I encountered a greater balrog. I didn't feel particularly concerned about it because I'd taken care of Gothmog without much trouble. But, I forgot to drink !rFire.

Oh well.
Sorry to hear that. Just checked out your file dump and see that your character was missing rFire and rCold. Not recommended at depths where monsters can breathe those for 1600 damage!

What?! How did that happen... Oh... it was when I switched from Amrod to the Lothlorien bow that I had just picked up. I didn't even think to check that because I'd had those resistances covered by multiple items for most of the game.

That would explain it...we've all been there in the past!!

Classic death. I died to Arien that way--thought I had immunity, but had no resistance at all.

You having no fire resistance was something that....
Nevermind. I've died to thing like this.

I'd not fight a greater balrog even if I had fire immunity. Sounds easy, but they end up summoning things more than once. Things like Furies, Pit Fiends and Gelugons.
