Slipping on banana peels abuses charisma (I discovered this when attempting to create a limbless character by repeatedly slipping on banana peels in New Attnam).

Interesting. Can anyone corroborate this?

Here's another one I found today (probs known already, but it felt pretty cool doing it in my current run) :

Wanna get out of UT but not strong enough to face Genetrix ? Apply a wand of teleportation near her. She'll be teleported (along with you) somewhere random on the floor, giving you access to the stairs. (In my armless run I put down a wand of tp near genetrix and kicked it until broke to get past her :3)

That's a pretty common tactic, yeah! I'm impressed you figured it out on your own. Some veteran players will try to teleport her (preferably with a zap, rather than a broken wand) so they can come back later and train weapon skills and attributes on infinitely-spawning carnivorous plants.

Finding out on an armless run is very impressive!

I feel like teleporting Genetrix should make her appear elsewhere, if not necessarily in the same dungeon.

Would be pretty neat to have her pop up in like GC7 or something because you tried to skip her with the teleport wand.

That's an interesting idea 4zb4. It'd be nice if that came with a danger level adjustment too, to keep her threatening.

Awesome idea! Might not be too difficult to implement...

Praying to silva also moves her. there are two guaranteed ways to know Silva - disarm kaethos the village elder (see what i did there..) or visit the altar of silva that is a guaranteed spawn in UT4. Second is not hard early game if you find a source of invisibility.

I just tested out something related to the Slob's Challenges thread.

I equipped a friendly kamikaze dwarf with a wand of teleport and his usual backpack of gunpowder.
I then kicked him.
He detonated immediately, breaking the wand in the process (just according to plan!)

But the teleport beam struck me first and teleported me away before the explosion did any damage to me!

Hmm. Does that mean there's some order of priority as to which blast effect hits first, regardless of which explodes first?

Can you teleport all the stuff out of the treasury this way?

That was the plan.
And yes, it works but you can't trust the wand of teleport to always break...

Sorry to post here, but you can sell the Justifier.

Edit: There's a pull request out.

I am surprised that's not on the wiki already

On a side note, the wiki needs a serious overhaul...

taming a magic mushroom and then forgetting about it on the same level as Merka ends poorly.

In my last game, I happened to have the minefield, Merka and a magic mushroom infestation on the same level... Fun times.
