This is coming from the man who soloed a sorcerer?

Off Topic a bit

BTW Dundee, how did you get round the various traps out there. There are quite a few that go completely across hallways.

Just thought of a third solution, do you have the following items?

Helm of Charm Protection or Shield of Harmony
Ring of Free Action

If you have them, give them to your best tank and lure one Mind Flayer at a time to a group of summons which will distract the Mind Flayer while your best tank hits it for free.

Fair enough. I must try soloing some time. When I have finished ToB...

Of course... it was a different story with my solo Cavalier.

"Hit me! Hit ME! WahHAHAHAHA!!!!"

Thank goodness for poison/charm immunity, and the fact that his resistances to most elements are really high.

I think I am more proud of my solo Cavalier than my solo Sorcerer, because it was a lot harder completing SoA + ToB with a solo Cavalier.

i dont get it. why do people talk about "cheese"? if it works, it works, right?! if i were a wizard, say stuck in a mindflayer dungeon, i know that my spells arent going to do SQUAT!!!! so im going to do whatever WORKS, so i can survive. i say, as long as there are no CHEATS involved, then go ahead and "cheese" away, at least that is my perspective.

whne fighting mind flayers - and i have killed a lot of illithids - i usualy tank up one char with a dragonslayer sword (not to use, just to equip when the hulks throw their confusions, and for a slight regen), boots of speed, best armour i have at the time,(illithids ignore,it, umber hulks DONT),blade of psion (which is THE item for illithids, but aint available until the yaga-shura incident, and thats in ToB) and max potions of INT, and BRINE POTIONS, which are the other item for illithids. shame theres only 8 of them. well worth saving for other illithid infestations if you happen to have some spare.

send this guy in alone and by himself. proper use of the potions and dragon sword will keep him alive and sane. proper use of his true weapon will see the psionic devourers dead and not sane.

then you just take any particularly nice treaure, admire the ghastly decorations these buggers always have, and head off to the next challenge.

Read the ring's description since you have it... ...

Helm of Charm Protection can be found in several places, Temple Sewers, Guarded Compound and Harper Stronghold are some that comes to mind.

Tactics schamctics bah!

All you need is a good tank (i.e. I use my main char, human berserker), good weapons, Boots of Speed, Oil of Speed, few bottles of Potion of Genius and 'that-other-one', which gives +3 INT/DEX. Slap on boots, quaff potions, kick open the door, scream "Surrender fools!" and let the whooping begin! Add Enrage as a spice on top too.

Works every time! If INT is getting lower, quaff another Potion of Genius and 'that-other-one'. That way I could keep my INT all the time at the base level - they take it down, potions get it up, soon the 'drain' icon goes away and I have INT even higher and so on. My lovely "you know what" katana stuns them as well and they die like roaches. You can rotate the targets, i.e. as soon as one is stunned, switch to another to stun and so on, then back to first. Look at the fireworks and foe shaped chunky bits. Works every time to me heheh
