Forum:What monsters have elemental resistances?

From NetHackWiki
Jump to: navigation, search


While the wiki lets me look up an individual monster to check its resistances, I cannot find any sort of list.

This is trouble some if, for example, one is reading up on Fire Brand or Mjollnir, and to get an idea of its effectiveness, follows the links from those pages to see what monsters are not fire/shock resistant, only to be taken to a page that has absolutely nothing to say about monster resistances.

There's a new monster resistances page that lists all monsters and their resistances, and you can sort by resistance. It might help! Aaxelb (talk) 01:03, 6 May 2013 (UTC)
Wonderful, thank you! That is very helpful, and it will mean that my current Valkyrie will actually look to make use of Fire Brand and Mjollnir rather than sticking to Excalibur out of a fear that the other weapons will be useless in the late game. (and I'll have a better idea of their utility for future characters)
I wonder where the best place to link to it would be? Would it be confusing to change the links in the "bonus versus" section of the weapons? Or should each of the "ELEMENT resistance" pages have a link to it? Hurkyl (talk) 02:58, 6 May 2013 (UTC)
