I believe you man. I got attacked by Ischaldirth on UT2 once. I just kind of laughed when I saw the death message.
Two best ways are an enchanted cloak of fire resistance (recommended) or if you lack that a prayer to Silva. Only problem with praying to Silva is that most liquids on the level will be lost (the bottles shatter).
I almost completely cleared that mage room past the portal once.
Then one of them destroyed one of my legs, so I ran like hell. >_>
Err, there is almost ZERO unfairness in IVAN. Every time I've died (after UT of course- I die from stupid shit in there all the time) it's always my fault. In this case, you should have had better armor before entering the wolf level or, the more obvious answer, have healed after getting hit by the first wolf. If you ever lose ANY health, try to immediately heal it back up.
Sometimes when you offer stuff to a god they will say something different. That lets you know you're a champion. It's usually "So and So greets you as a champion of the cause!"
Atavus is actually really easy to get to champion. Just pray to him every now and then, and offer him treasure chests.
Also, if you get to the point where you can't beat Genetrix, just tele her out of the way and go up the stairs. It's kind of a waste to use the wand on normal plants. Or just do what I do and fight her until she hits you, go back and heal, repeat. If you have any kind of decent weapon (hell iron daggers work) you should easily take her down.
Hmm. I kind of need more specific information to help you. How do you usually die and where?
There is no optimal equipment set, but I suggest never using armor of great health. It will usually spawn enemies that more than negate the health bonus.
I once had Xinroch, Ur Khan, and Golghor Dhan all at once.
Oh, I once encountered Ischaldirth on UT2. Figure that one out.
Put all of your tips in this thread for obtaining the High Priest ending. I'll edit this post as we go to include everything we post.
My IVAN playing days have basically come to a close now that I've finally beaten it completely, so I thought I would share my knowledge. I'll start off with what I consider to be the most important tips.
-You will absolutely NEED a source of invisibility, preferably a ring. You can get by without it until after Elpuri when you start encountering droves of veteran kamikazes. They will utterly destroy you if you don't have invisibility.
- You will also absolutely need two cloaks: one fire resistance and one electricity resistance, both enchanted to at least +7. The fire one should be on at all times before Elpuri, while switching to the electricity one when needed (battlemages, hattifatteners, etc). After Elpuri you'll want the electricity one on at all times, with possibly a ring of electricity resistance on as well. If you don't, your shit will get wrecked within seconds.
- Don't use armor of great health. The enemies it will spawn against you will far outweigh the health bonus it provides.
- Never, EVER try to fight Shererax. The gear she has isn't worth the beheading you will most likely receive.
- MOST IMPORTANT TIP: always, always, ALWAYS have a wand of teleportation on you. Not in a chest in your inventory, on you. If something doesn't go your way and you're in the red you can easily escape. Plus if you get hit by a giant explosion or something the wand will break and send you to safety (assuming you have telecontrol, which you should).
- Best weapons: this is debatable, but no matter what you use you should be dual wielding. Shields aren't worth it. I highly suggest one of your weapons be Vermis, because the telecontrol, teleportitis, and random teleporting of enemies is invaluable and frees up ring slots...plus it's ridiculously strong. For the other weapon either use another Vermis if you play defensively or an extremely enchanted angel hair whip of thievery if you want to be offensive oriented. It delimbs with basically every hit, no matter what you're fighting. Hell, it took off one of Petrus' arms in one swipe. (keep in mind the 2nd weapon is basically your preference. If you like Turox, use it. Hell, use an enchanted dagger if you want. Just make sure you're using one Vermis)
(will add more later)
Yeah I had a ridiculous surplus of wands. I had over 5 of every wand in the game except cloning (had one with 3 charges that I kept recharging sow whatever) and lightning (because they're utterly worthless). Also had two holy bananas of oily orpriv.
Other. The master necromancers that hide in far corners of lower GC and revive shit all the time are by far the worst.
