When I was messing around with my Ultimate Golem last night, I discovered it was possible to kill Elpuri with nothing but wands, and that's not including wands of haste, slow, invisibility, fireball, cloning, mirroring, door creation and minimal use of striking. So what did I use? Including explosions, around two dozen charges of acid rain and two dozen charges of lightning. Half a dozen charges of striking to make used up wands explode. Of course, the fact that Elpuri just stood in the acid might have a lot to do with it, I don't know how much acid resistance he's got...

I always thought dark frogs were acid proof - considiring they have acid blood....

Think of it like a Alien from Alien VS Predator. They are Acid Resistant, but enough acid will kill it. It'll just take ALOT.

That's a ridiculous amount, considering the Acid Shields I created some time ago were unable to, even in wizard mode, generate enough acid to kill a plant, let alone a frog.

One of the biggest awesomities EVAR - he jumped in wizard mode, and changed the material of his shield into acid : someone punches - someone gets wet from the acid...

Except not. It was an item I coded... oh, two years ago at least, which splashed acid on anyone who's attack you blocked. It was pretty effective against most enemies. Plants, frogs, and whip-users however were a problem.

You coded it? Oh well, my memory sucks. Sorry all.

It was SUPPOSED to be added into the CVS. I don't know if it ever made it. If not, it may well be lost. Search the official forums and you might find the code I did though... I'm not sure.

Well, put it this way. My golem practically had to wade through the acid to get to Elpuri's corpse.

And your acid shields are in the CVS, Atomic. They're kinda rare, though.
