It's been a lot of time since my last totally not YASD

Nothing special on this char, a o-tab Ba^Oka. No fancy equipment, just that it's a death by autoexplore, a thing that did not happen to me since lot of time, like years.

I was mindlessly o-tabbing Vaults, killing pretty much anything at ease, then this happened:

  Code:
 
56031 | Vaults:3 | Noticed Xtahua
56031 | Vaults:3 | Paralysed by Xtahua for 7 turns
56035 | Vaults:3 | HP: 20/176 [Xtahua/searing blast (73)]
56036 | Vaults:3 | HP: 9/176 [Xtahua] (11)]
56037 | Vaults:3 | Killed from afar by Xtahua



Still, not complaining; on the other hand it is remarkable that things like this happens extremely rarely in a very big game such as DCSS.

Wait, Xtahua can paralyse?! I have been playing a long time and I did not know.

Thanks for the beautiful autoexplore paralysis example! Also, I may approach Xtahua with more respect in the future.

yeah since a lot of time.

But I also tend to forget he can do that, because usually it's kinda a pushover.

What would have been different if you had not been autoexploring? It seems that the unpronouncable critter had you paralysed the moment you noticed it. Could have happened in any circumstances.

Not sure the goal of that commit (giving Xtahua a niche) really succeeded, given how few players seem to know about it.

For most cases of paralysis, your positioning matters a lot. Without autoexplore, you can explore so that you attempt to minimise the chance that a monster comes into view close to you, and then she has much smaller chance to paralyse and kill you without any chance to react.

But in this case you are right: to the best of my knowledge, Xtahua's fire breath has full (or just almost full?) LOS range, she can kill you from anywhere exactly the same way. (Her breath does a lot of damage, even without the fire cloud her breath leaves, which does additional damage only when you are paralysed.) Seems a dumb thing to me to give paralysis to such a monster.

Poor Xtahua, with all her inflated ego, is still a lowly Lair Larrikin. I will keep that in mind next time I meet her in the Dungeon of Zot, and perish with a condescending smile on my lips...
