So if Ischaldirh spawns after a specific date, is it possible to make him spawn on Attnam for instance? Or he only spawns on dungeon levels?

He probably will spawn as soon as you enter a dungeon again.

Finally found it. Earlier in this thread there's something about food being slower to rot in colder areas, but that's not true. I present an IRC quote from 2008:

13:51 < chaostrom> there's a temperature factor in IVAN?
13:52 < J_Kahvi> i'm quite sure there isn't
13:52 < J_Kahvi> but there should be one

Enner scream won't affect you being polymorphed into ghost.
Golems can zap wand of invisibility and become immune to Infravision and ESP.

Enner can't hit ghosts? 0_0

The golem thing I knew, but this may very well be a new way to kill the enner.

I'm glad to contribute something useful. btw I met rookie dk on the same level in full +5 set I was lucky to tame him but still died stuipdly later. Question in return, does GC5 or GC6 generate bone files? I assume not, which is sad because I found +3 Ommel hair armor of GH laying around here.

Forgive me that I'm too lazy to look it up right now, but there is some post somewhere on this forum that explains armor of GH is often a bad idea, as it raises the danger level a lot. Even so much that the great health is less of an advantage then the danger level is a disadvantage.

I am aware of this fact and this is why I did not equip it in first place. Although thanks for mentioning that, moment when I stumbled upon this aspect of the game helped me a lot. It's also worth mentioning that replacing organic limbs with artificial can boost danger level and make game spawn mobs you are not yet prepared for (in my memory I had kobold with +7 spear).

The downside of being a ghost and trying to then kill the Enner is... you're a ghost. Ghosts don't exactly have a lot of damage-dealing capability.

I dont like what you guys think of the armor of great health. I have usually had great success with it.

As a matter of fact I think I was wearing it both times Ive beaten the game.

Depends on your playing style. It's worth it if you have good artificial limbs.

I suspect the wands might break, so it might not be IVAN-proof.

That doesn't seem to make sense to me though i remember a recent thread on this topic...

Another alternative is poly into a ghost, then charm the enner and lead him around. Say... into Attnam?

ghosts cant read or use items. so wands/scrolls are out. Praying to dulcis does work though. could be viable way to get enner to attnam?

Sherry is tamable via resurrection

IIRC, she is tamable through resurrection in .50 because the tag for tamability was only introduced in CVS. .50 handled it through an extremely high value for taming difficulty or some such. I don't have a copy of IVAN available to check the script files at the moment, so this is only something I recall reading on the forums.

It is in fact possible to find un-enchanted *gear* of *stat*. For example, I just found a pair of boots of agility sans plus.
