Forum:Avoiding wishes

From NetHackWiki
Jump to: navigation, search


I am finally attempting wishless genocideless ascentions. However, some of these attempts have been foiled by impromptu wishes ( potions, sitting on a throne, or releasing a demon). It seems that every time I try to avoid the wish, I end up with a useless item, and the wishless conduct is violated. Is there a way to refuse a wish when it is granted this way?

The same happens with genocide free conduct when reading an unidentified scroll or sitting on a throne.

Wish for "nothing", "nil", or "none". And read the Wishless page for this and more strategy tips. Wooble (talk) 17:51, 5 December 2014 (UTC)

That was excellent advice! I had not read Wishless page before. Also, I just completed my first wishless, genocideless and polymorphless ascent! Bose (talk) 05:13, 17 December 2014 (UTC)
