Massive number enemy at stairs?

Down stairs is a massive amount of enemies and I only see death happening. All stairs lead to same spot on next floor down so can not go around them. There is super power player ghost on both levels above so going up stairs could be instant death. What can be done to survive?

Enemies:
Orcs
Orc Warrior
Orc Mages
Orc Priests
Wargs
Yaks
Killer Bees
Slaves
Pikel
Psyche

Re: Massive number enemy at stairs?

Are there any hatches that go down? They probably lead to somewhere else on the level.

Re: Massive number enemy at stairs?

If you have a scroll of blinking, you could blink to the Lair stairs and go into the lair. A couple orcs or bees will follow you, and then you will be better able to handle the rest when you come out.

Re: Massive number enemy at stairs?

Stand over stair, read tp scroll, press "." (dot) ONCE, go downstairs.
Take your chance to disband the pack for a fair fight.

IMO Invisibility may be worse than the tp (un)luck

Re: Massive number enemy at stairs?

Hatches are if available, but if you need to do the "read teleport and walk downstairs" trick, quaffing invis (and agility) before teleporting is not a terrible plan. That way you'll last longer before your teleport kicks in and are more likely to be able to handle whatever you find where you land. Don't hesitate to might up if you land somewhere marginal — but keep it if you can; it may help you deal with the remnants of this pack.

You might also try quaffing your unidentified potions before returning downstairs — if you find haste it'll make your excursion more survivable as well.
