Strategy

Don't fight this thing in melee. Even if the entire game so far has been a cakewalk, spending a turn while next to this thing will, at the very least, result in you not having a cloak of magic resistance anymore, and possibly much worse than that. In particular, DO NOT swap out a ring of free action for levitation after losing MR, or you'll be chain-paralyzed to death like I did. Kill him at range, no matter how many unskilled shuriken it will take your samurai to do so, then quickly snatch the amulet and use cursed gain level since going back through the 200 pits and 50 umber hulks and xorns will not work, the elder priest will resurrect before you even get out of his temple and then you're screwed. --Bluescreenofdeath (talk) 07:16, 11 September 2017 (UTC)

Don't remove free action and you should be OK. --FIQ (talk) 00:09, 12 September 2017 (UTC)
