"You kill the vampire bat! The seemingly dead vampire bat suddenly transforms and rises as a vampire bat!"

Rinse and repeat. Everytime I killed it, it reincarnated. After several dozen attempts, I got bored with bat farming and gave up. Then I ate a candy bar, 'cause, ya know, the bug bounties are self awarded 'round here.

This sounds like a bug in older versions where if vampire (lord)s were genocided (possibly extinct?), the bat/wolf/fog cloud couldn't revert to vampire form, so it would resurrect still in its current form and be effectively immortal. It should be fixed in current versions. --Darth l33t (talk) 00:31, 31 October 2021 (UTC)
I didn't genocide vampire lords, though. At least I don't think I did. Or maybe I got a free genocide from a throne, and used it on vampire lords, because I'd already genocided 'flayers, and every time I typed "mimic" it told me there was no such thing. I bet you're right.--Skrizzle (talk) 01:45, 3 November 2021 (UTC)
