|0005596||[DCSS] Bug Report||minor||random||2012-04-25 08:57||2016-05-20 03:04|
|Status||resolved||Product Branch||0.11 ancient branch|
|Summary||0005596: pre-lair/pre-orc xom vault with ghost-moth capable shapeshifters|
On the same level as the lair entrance, D:9, I encountered a xom vault. it had metal walls with a few translucent ones, and was open on the northern side; inside were two very high level shapeshifters. One escaped, turned into a ghost moth, and you can guess the result to that. When I mentioned it to ##crawl, mikee and others recalled that the vault should have been completely enclosed
I don't mind OOD deaths, but this vault reminds me of the old spider lair ghost moth map, which was usually mid-lair, had a warning message on finding the ghost moth, and an immediate portal out, and that was -still- taken out. I'd suggest this vault at least have its shapeshifters toned down in HD.

This sounds like xom_shifter_show in overflow.des. The vault is enclosed, but the glass is diggable. It was probably eaten by a boring beetle (could have been one of the shapeshifters).
Also, simply changing this to use undiggable glass won't work. A shapeshifter can turn into a rock worm and escape the vault that way.
If this is a problem I think the vault should be removed as an overflow vault, and made to spawn deeper. But, as it currently is, you have to be exceptionally unlucky to die to it.
|Maybe exceptionally unlucky to die to it, but not that unlucky to have the shapeshifters escape. There are at least four forms that can escape it: rock worm, boring beetle, boulder beetle, and eye of devastation. Which is annoying - overflow vaults shouldn't be so dangerous as to force you off the level. Making the glass undiggable would help: then only one form could escape, and it wouldn't be one that has an immediately accessible ranged weapon.|
