How many times have YOU killed the ZSoC?
I feel sorry for the big fella when he tries to summon uniques ;-)

Hmm ... Do you think a Poison Needle would work? The Zombified J isn't a unique after all.

Possibly... but it's not clear the poison needle would be more effective than the current setup. Doing about 2000 damage per round (because of 70% to hit), I kill the ZSoC in about 15 rounds. Dual wielding Poison Needles, I'd need the Poison Needle to have a "fatal spot" rate of at least 3%.

Hm, it does seem like more than that, usually.

Single wielding the Poison Needle, and you never miss. Dual wield, and normal hit rates apply. But since you are a somewhat decent warrior, you are better off dual wielding.

I checked the odds, and they are worse than I thought:
1 in rand(monster level/7) + 5

For the Zombified J, that is
1 in rand(18) + 5

So, perhaps 1 in 14 on average. I thought the needle was more like 1 in 7 ... shucks! Its not like I was about to try that, though ...

Samurai can get 6 blows per round with the needle, and that might work well :D

Never mind, the Zombified J as the UNIQUE2 flag and is immune. Also immune are the Greater Cyber Wyrm Angel Daemon Lich, and Gold and Silver Angels, for some reason. Weird ...

Well, that explains why I was never able to capture one with a Capture Ball. But wait, does this mean you can't catch a Greater Cyber Daemon Angel Wyrm Lich for riding then?

FYI, I tried out the Samurai Midare-Setsugekka trick with a pair of Poison Needles. Only 2 attacks rather than 6, so it looks like that "bug" has been fixed. I'm not sure about the GCDAWL, but I suspect you won't be able to capture it :(
