He seemed almost completely immune to fire, but he is not, and his in-game xv did not indicate so either. Walking through tile after tile of flame, while being hit repeatedly by bolt of fire, he was unmoved by my assaults. I have killed a lot of ghosts on much higher levels that were not as hard to kill as this one. It wasn't even red text. Could not touch him. The only question I have is, what hidden mechanic is making him almost immune to serious fire? Does high AC diminish elemental damage?

Edit: Oh, he also shrugged off my emptying two full wands of disintegration on him.

Re: This ghost...

AC diminishes most forms of elemental damage, yes, and bolts of fire are subject to AC and EV checks. Basically this ghost has 12 more AC and 7 more EV than an orb of fire, so even without the OoF's crazy resistances, that's pretty damn resilient, and represents much better damage mitigation than the enemies you normally encounter (stone giants are 12 AC, 2 EV, by comparison, and at max have about same HP as this ghost). That plus a string of somewhat worse-than-average rolls could easily account for your experience.

A very long string. I was in quite extended battles with this ghost. Two full disint wands in the last one. Oh, and one of them was recharged using a scroll after it was empty, then emptied again before I left the fight. After all that, on a gargoyle (ghost), his bar was only about 2/3 down, and he'd recovered a third of it on a long jog to the stairs. A truly inimical ghost. I'll be coming back for him at a later time. We'll see how he stands up to a few volleys of LCS and FS. :)

And how the hell did he get killed on D:12, for pete's sake? ;)

Looks like he was moving with manticore barbs,
he was going to get in melee range with manticore after fight with boring beetle
  Code:
The barbed spikes dig painfully into your body as you move.
Also I think he made mistake with positioning while fighting boring beetle. He should get behing that beelte, so manticore cant fire barbs. With no clear shot, manticore would get closer to him.

Heck, in this case, even just Freeze would work.

Re: This ghost...

Isn't Freeze subject to AC too? And even if it's not and you can kill the ghost with it, staying in melee range with a GrGl wielding a lajtang is not the smartest thing you can do.

Re: This ghost...

Freeze ignores AC (one reason it's insanely good).
