In 5.1.0, you can not tame monster by spell in black market, but feed cat or dog still work. --Zgyt4033 (talk) 21:12, 11 January 2014 (UTC)


Ideas for stopping Sam that DON'T work (couldn't think of a place to put them in the article):

  • Pit fort (flying)
  • Boulder fort (doesn't even slow her down)
  • Poison insta-kill (poison resist)
  • Outrunning/out-teleporting (much faster than you, 12/13 chance of pain)
  • Luring Sam out of the Black Market and into a normal, conflict and teleport ready level
  • Pacifying Sam as a shopkeeper in the second level design
  • Relying on tame monsters or conflict outside of very specific scenarios
  • Having a huge wall of enemies between you and Sam while you make a break for the exit (almost made it too...)


It's possible to kill Sam and Black marketeers with strong pet. You can tame a domestic animal with food then polymorph it or cast create familiar spell to get it. Boulder fort can trap peaceful Sam, at least when the only way out is occupied by your character. Let your strong pet(s) finish her.--Zgyt4033 (talk) 04:25, 20 January 2014 (UTC)

"Strong pet" means Iron golem or something stronger, and only work against less armored Sam. My lv.30 mastodon and lv.24 titan with +4 long sword cannot even hit the AC -29 Sam. --Zgyt4033 (talk) 06:53, 12 March 2014 (UTC)
My lv.26 purple worm(eaten 4 wraiths) cannot hit the AC -26 Sam for thousands turns. ——Zgyt4033 (talk) 03:51, 24 August 2017 (UTC)
Killed that AC -26 Sam with lv.30 mastodon. ——Zgyt4033 (talk) 08:38, 24 August 2017 (UTC)

Has anyone tried stinking cloud as a way to kill One-Eyed Sam? I couldn't find any mention of it when I searched for it. But I also don't see any mention of Sam not needing air. --Fireball (talk) 11:19, 28 Feb 2017 (UTC)

Poison resistant monsters do not take damage, but are still angered.

Question: in the variant of the black market with individual shops, Sam's assistants often step on the exit portal and leave the black market, ending up on a normal dungeon level. Are there any repercussions to killing the assistants outside of the black market? -Radishes (talk) 02:35, 20 September 2017 (UTC)

No more than killing regular peaceful monster. --Zgyt4033 (talk) 09:38, 20 September 2017 (UTC)
