mirrored items disappear after a while (and so can't be sold), cloned don't. More important items can usually be cloned but not mirrored, or neither

Can you polymorph the altar in the Cathedral?

If so can you pray to someone other than Valpuris in the Cathedral?

If so can you get the high priest victory by being the champion of say Mortifer and praying on the throne?

Something that used to kill me on a regular basis until I figured it out.



Always use the (l)ook command on the wilderness map to locate Attnam. Don't just run around and starve to death.

Turok can still hit you, if it explodes. You would be wise to have your wands in a container, and your scrolls as well... Otherwise, you get raped!

Holy bananas explode. Big. Keep them in your chest if you don't eat them immediately.

Wands of resurrection work on banana peels. If you use it on a banana peel from a holy banana, you get an ordinary banana.

Don't forget that it doesn't matter how rotten the peel is. As long as you have a banana peel with you, and resurrect it, you'll get a whole new banana.

I think the emphasis should be on "you get a fresh banana".

Alright not sure if this is true but no one mentioned it yet

If you use a wand of resurection on a dead hero's corpse while their ghost is over it... You can bring them back to life

It's true. You can have your former self as a pet.


Here's one I don;t understand. if you chat with Petrus when you are fighting him, he says something like"Heretic,Dev/Null is not a place fit for you'' what the hell does this mean?

I love how this "little details" thread has turned more into "miscellaneous tips and tricks". As well as gotten so cumbersomely huge that people are probably going to start repeating "details" soon without even realizing it.

Angels got from praying Valpurus or Mortifier are permanent.

Metal Whips are generally less powerful then a whip made of cloth or hair. Its technically a batton, or a fencing foil.

A wet whip does slightly more damage.

Search for a runed whip. Runed whips typically do more damage, but are rarer to come by. They do weigh alittle more as well.

LIVAN 0.99 has a strange lag time. It lets you pay more attention, but as your perception goes up, you can lag more.

Its possible to use Vomit as a deadly weapon. DEADLY WEAPONNN!!!

You can clone angels, but not archangels.

*Pops out of nowhere*

Monsters get confused if you hit them with weapons dipped in booze.

Wow. That's... interesting, even if it doesn't actually make much sense logically...

Lighter weapons give you more attacks, making Octiron dagger +11 or above (44g, unbelievably accurate, almost unbreakable) the best weapon.

You can't change materials to liquids or any kind of flesh but banana.

You can't detect dark frog blood or flesh.

One time, I kicked a chest in the post-Elpuri dungeon and it said "You shudder." There was no altar there or any reason for shuddering.

Phoenix feather is a good conductor, so it will rust easy and lightning will go through it (blowing up wands in a chest) or destroy it (melted legs).

Making your limbs into GEF boosts your danger level way more that Phoenix, and combined with good equipment and HP, will make Ischaldirch spawn.

For the ultimate char, use fountains to get permanent Haste, Teleporting, Invisibility, and Polycontrol.

As your attributes go up your character's "Naked" appearance will change... however your VERY unlikely to notice because by the time you reach those power levels you will be entirely covered up

Actually you can change materials to floating eye flesh...I use that all the time to get perma-ESP. 3 chest eaten in quick succession are enough to go over 65536 ticks of ESP.

That's a great one for the Ivan Detectives thread...hint there was something in the chest that broke when you kicked it that caused the effect.
