Summary 0006501: Stupid behaviour of strong intelligent humanoids.
Description When you conjure a flame behind a weak monster and block it's way by yourself or another conjured flame strong monsters and bosses (even itelligent humanoids)still move in your direction and step into flames and stand there behind weak monsters until they burn to death. They should kill weak monsters or step outside the flame and only go through flames if nothing other then flames separate you and only if they'll make it trough without loosing too many HP (ofcourse you can place another flame in front of them to continue burning them and that would be realistic but only if they can move in your direction).

Of course, it's the only way to kill a boss for a weak wizard without a new book but it's irrational and not realistic. Instead, it would be better to give a wizard a new direct offence spell of 2nd or 3rd level(at least throw frost), because it's very frustrating to attack high level monsters with magic dart spell if you are not lucky to find a new offensive book when you play a pure wizard of Vehumeth(I somehow haven't tried sif muna so I don't know if he(she?) gives you books sooner). For example, it would be nice if vehumeth could give a book with 2-3lv offensive spell at **.... or ***...

The issue you raise in the second paragraph seems to have been solved by New Vehumet.

As for the first paragraph, well yeah *sometimes* they'll step through the flames but I think at low health they will avoid that; and what are they supposed to do, stand there waiting for you to throw darts or meph clouds at them? Killing weak monsters to get them out of the way could be an interesting behaviour but I think it's a more marginal case.

Re-read my post, please... They actualy "stand there waiting for you to throw darts" when they are at low HP, when they should run away, the way they do when you attack them over the water/lava and they just stand behind weak mobs, burning, as long as you want them to, when they just need to step outside, untill they'll be able to get to you. And the problem will be solved, you'll have to run away bacause you won't be able to kill a strong boss by withstanding few weak attacks of a weak monster. you get what I'm saying?

Or simpler, they just need to change places with monsters the way allied monsters do. They have enough strength to move weak monsters behind them, logically speaking.
